Favorite dish to serve at a dinner party: My go-to dish for a dinner party is a pan seared salmon with an herbed pea sauce. I usually pair it with a healthy sprout, spinach or collard green salad.
Favorite skin food ingredient and why: Matcha and blueberries are two of my favorite foods for healthy skin because they are high in antioxidants.
