Top three healthy snack options? One diet secret you would like to share now?
Nuts! My go-to is walnuts, cashews and pecans.
I love a smoothie as well. You can whip up a smoothie with frozen fruits and nut milks in a blender for a fast-healthy snack. One of my favorite companies is Daily Harvest that have prepared combinations of fruits and vegetables ready to go by adding milk and blending.
Occasionally, sweet and salty popcorns are a favorite snack.
The term ‘diet’ has too many meanings. Better than starting a traditional or ‘fad’ diet you should adapt a healthy life style and eat the foods in the portion sizes that you need to sustain that healthy life style. Start by cutting your portion sizes in half and enjoy it by eating slower. In America, our portion sizes are larger than the portions we really need. Remember, drink a lot of water or tea to hydrate and flush!
Define Women Fitness for WF viewers.
Women fitness to me is staying healthy but not putting pressure on you. Balance is key. I think the hardest part of fitness and working out is getting started, that’s why I prefer to work out in the morning right after I have my coffee so it’s done and out of the way. I feel like it sets an amazing tone to the day and I have no excuse not to get it done. Women’s fitness is also inspiring other women to be their best selves and motivate each other. Something to always keep in mind is all of our bodies work differently what gives me muscles may not work for someone else so it’s important to find a workout that’s fun and one that works for your body type.
How are you spending your time creatively during the lockdown?
I am not sure that I am being particularly creative; I am trying to be productive by getting organized and planning for the day when we are released from this lockdown. I think it’s important to remember this is a pandemic and not a productivity competition because at finest I was putting a lot of pressure on myself. During this time I have learned new skills like cutting hair, grooming my dog and have become a personal chef for my family by preparing every meal at home. I have also become the ‘game night’ host.
Preparing for the release, I have read about CoVid-19 so I can protect my family. Masks and gloves may be essential in the future. I have joined the fight of this virus by donating masks and gloves to those working on the front line.
