As a wellness blogger and health coach, I have a very fluid lifestyle. This means that there are no set rules as to what I eat, the times of day, or where I’m even working.
My days are split between traveling all over Los Angeles for meetings, working from coffee shops, developing recipes and photographing them in my kitchen, filming YouTube videos, and Skyping or meeting my clients. I love everything about my career, but it’s also quite demanding.
That’s why it is so important for me to stick with the one habit I have and that is making sure I am eating enough throughout the day to keep up with a crazy schedule.
When I’m making recipes, I taste-test a lot of the food, which is why I don’t always have set meals; however, if I’m not spending the day in the kitchen, I try to have a bit more consistency.
I'm about to launch my first book, The 5-Day Real Food Detox, and a lot of what I eat and the “rules” I follow come from this.
When I wrote this program it was a game-changer for my relationship with food, as it taught me how to eat correctly after being scared of carbs for so many years, and that skipping meals is a total no-no. Now I make sure to eat before I get hangry and to focus on having lots of colors.
