  • Food For Thought/ Where I Feast

    It’s Monday. You Did It Up This Past Weekend. Here’s What To Do Today.


    It’s Monday. It’s possible you are stressed about what you ate and drank over the weekend and you have vowed to start your diet today. 

    Stop right there. Tell the diets to die.

    All you need is a palate reset. You do not need a juice cleanse or any cleanse for that matter. 

    All you need is to Eat. Real. Food. 

    Focus on feasting on fueling plants and animals, and you are on your way to a healthy start of your week. 
    I need a bit of a reset myself so I opted for wild cod with roasted roots & Brussels sprouts.

    • Cod is a great lean protein source high in B12/omega3 and uh, The Rock eats 821 pounds of it a year.
    • Root veggies are high in fiber, vitaminC, & beta-carotene, amongst many other nutrients. 
    • Cruciferous Brussels sprouts are nutritional powerhouses, and interestingly enough contain 3g of protein per cup.
    • Oh and I eat guac with everything. 


    Celebrate your mind and body by celebrating food. It’s not about deprivation, it’s about satiation.

    Get New Gear To Get Motivated


    Thank you Emily Hsu Designs for this awesome “Bang Bang Graffiti Bra”. I threw it on to motivate myself to rock a 5K on my own this morning. 

    Just can’t get motivated? Try these 3 quick tips:

    1. Get Grateful: Realize that it is a gift and privilege to have a healthy, functional body. Every day is an opportunity to unwrap that gift. Take a deep breath, roll those shoulders back, and get moving! 
    2. Gear Up: Sometimes new kicks (or a badass new sports bra) can get you on your feet. It worked for me today!
    3.  Get Social: Post your progress online. Likes and comments from friends never get old and can keep you accountable to keep your fitness consistent. 

    What are you motivating yourself to do this week? Let me know!

    Happy National Coffee Day


    In honor of National Coffee Day, I wanted to share a little bit of my daily coffee game with you. I start my day with cold brew…either a growler from Birch Coffee or I ship Gradys Cold Brew bean bags from Brooklyn and brew my own. Not playin’. Quality cold brew coffee is my superhero secret…well, one of them anyway 😉

    And to clarify, cold brew coffee is NOT hot coffee poured over ice. That is a bastardization of the beauty of this brew. This kind of iced coffee was never hot. It steeps or soaks in room temp or cold water, resulting in a smoother, naturally sweeter, rounder coffee concentrate with 67% less acidity, making it a better option for both your digestive tract and teeth!

    Do the cold brew. You are welcome!

    Hosting The Global Citizen Festival Livestream


    It was a night to remember. It was a perfect New York City Fall day with 60,000 music fans and activists on the Great Lawn in New York’s Central Park.

    Performances by Pearl Jam, Beyonce, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, and Tori Kelly were incredible, and appearances by Michelle Obama,  Joe Biden, Malala, Bono, Hugh Jackman, Stephen Colbert were unforgettable.

    What an absolute honor it was to host the Youtube Livestream of the event. I’m still pinching myself.

    Happy National Cheeseburger Day


    I love burgers. Who doesn’t?
    I eat them on the regular, which is why I tend to eat them #FitToFeast-style, sans bun and cheese, instead focusing on the gorgeous grass-fed bison patty.

    However, there are those times when I go full beast and order EXACTLY what I want with “The Works”. Here is evidence of that in my latest show, #FoodPorn…

    Small Tweaks When Dining Out

    FullSizeRender 95

    Showing my newest Health Coach client, Josh Beckerman, The Foodie Magician, how implementing healthy change is about progress, not perfection..although this meal right here is pretty close to it 👅

    I curated tonight’s ‪#‎FitToFeast‬ menu at The Loop, sticking to sashimi and riceless rolls. Josh has never had sushi without rice, so tonight’s order seemed odd to him at first. However, when he was greeted by these beauts, he simply did not miss (or even remember) the rice!

    The Shrek Roll: tuna, salmon, yellowtail, avocado, snow crab, shrimp, masago wrapped with green soy sheet.

    The Tourist Roll: shrimp, tuna, snow crab, mint leaf, mango, and cucumber wrapped with soy sheet

    It’s about making small, sustainable (and delicious) tweaks. Enjoy!
