Favorite weekend activity:

Getting outside the city and exploring somewhere new and/or enjoying nature hiking and biking. I love long road trips to Vermont.

Personal Nutrition philosophy:

I believe in the 90/10 rule. 90% perfect of the time I try to eat a seasonal plant based diet. 10% of the time I allow myself to indulge. I believe that food has such a powerful effect on the body, that once you start eating healthy, you don't even want the processed junk.
