Why is “Healthy Living” important to you?

Who doesn’t want to live a long and healthy life? Eating smart, drinking plenty of water and exercise are a serious priority for me.

Who are your “Healthy Living” role models and why?

Joy Bauer is inspiring because her focus isn’t about starving or depriving yourself, but learning how to balance and be smart with your healthy living choices. Also Mark Bittman, as a writer I have so much respect for him and his “vegan before 6pm” practice is a doable spin on diet.

What is your go-to healthy meal when you are short on time?

Seared ahi tuna on instant brown rice and sliced avocado with soy on the side for dipping.

Do you have any tips for families who want to make some healthy lifestyle changes?

Plan out your meals before the week starts, add in greens with every meal and spend time outside together moving.

Are there any foods that you consider to be off-limits completely?

Not particularly, I’m more about balance than cutting out.

In addition to eating right, do you have any other tips to share on overall wellness?

I swear by hot yoga – you can workout your body while you get your mind right. Mental health is so important and so often times undervalued. Sleep is huge for having the energy to feel your best.

What is your favorite Cascade Ice flavor and why?

Organic Citrus Twist – it’s light and bright, with more of a hint of fruit in the water.
