Favorite dish to serve at a dinner party: I love to make a miso maple glazed salmon for a big group! You can find the recipe (among many other recipes for an incredible dinner party) here.

Favorite skin food ingredient and why: Vitamin C! After using it regularly, I have brightened my skin’s appearance, have improved my skin’s texture, and have significantly less dark spots and blemishes. I swear by Agent Nateur’s Vitamin C powder mixed with Holi Water!

Favorite online shop for kitchen supplies and / or specialty food items: I live in Los Angeles, so I absolutely love Erewhon Market. Fun fact: they recently launched nationwide delivery!

Go-to quick, healthy meal: My famous sliced avocado and tahini ‘toast’s on Ella’s Flats seed crackers, as they are quick to make and filled with fiber, nutrients, vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, and plant-based protein
