Alicia Sokol, MPH is a freelance writer and photographer living in Washington, DC. She created the blog Weekly Greens to demystify the notion of home cooking for busy people (yes, you). Her recipes, cooking tips and stories inspire her readers to back away from the hot bar, embrace whole food ingredients and cook from scratch with no fuss. She is also a certified instructor of barre3 — a combination of yoga, ballet and pilates — in Georgetown. Follow her on Instagram @aliciasokol for a chronicle of foods she's whipped up for dinner and booties she's whipped in the studio.
