Smoothies or juicing? I combine them! I’ll take a green juice and add extra ingredients to it so it becomes a blended green juice smoothie. You just can’t blend for very long if it’s a cold-pressed juice or it will kill some of the nutrients.

A wellness rule to live by? Staying prepared is a big one for me. If you’re going to be traveling, have your airport kit ready with certain snacks that tide you over so you don’t have that “oh, s---” moment.

How do you stay energized throughout the day? Definitely staying hydrated and moving. And laughing is really great. You get endorphins from it, and it’s better for your hormone levels. Laughter is a great way to put a pause on high cortisol levels.
