Anonymous said: Your blog is absolutely amazing. I love that you know what you want to say and don't get blinded by the labels. I also go to boarding school in Switzerland and I completely understand not wanting to follow everybody else's steps. You also seem super healthy! Congratulations! And I was wondering if you had any tips or examples of your daily meal routine, and healthy meals you cook at school? Your posts help me a lot so thank you! And please, don't change. You're awesome! :)

Wow thank you for the extremely sweet and kind message! My school meal routine is slightly different to my home meal routine as I don’t have everything I can find in New York in Switzerland, but it basically consists of a larger breakfast, which is typically a variation of overnight oats/eggs/avocado toast/smoothies/oatmeal, a salad for lunch with some protein and a mid day snack consisting of nuts,fruit or a chia bar and a light dinner. Generally I load up on lean proteins (I’m a major fish head), loads of veggies, fruits, grains and legumes such as beans and lentils. The biggest advice I can give you is to eat whole foods. Stay clear of processed foods and try to eat foods in their purest form. Of course everything in moderation is fine, and it’s bad to deprive yourself as you’ll probably end up majorly binge eating one night, which is just horrible for your body. At school I make overnight oats for breakfast every morning and I always have avocados, hummus, carrots, smoked salmon, baby tomatoes, bars, oil free and salt free popcorn, seaweed, rice cakes, and berries on hand for when I don’t like what’s being served in the dining hall. Hope this helps!!

Staying In

Cooking has been an extremely important part of my life ever since I can remember. My earliest memory in the kitchen is my Father teaching me how to properly use a chef knife at the meager age of 8. Since then, cooking has been one of my favorite pastimes and outlets for creativity. This weekend, I threw together a healthy, light and yummy summer feast for my Father and I, which completely utilized our goodies that we picked up from the Union Square Green market. Our feast consisted of a beautiful and simply baked red snapper, grilled summer corn and fresh boiled baby zucchini, cauliflower rice and a sugar snap pea and radish salad. This was the perfect summer night meal, which both excited our tastebuds and left us feeling light, clean and satisfied.

One of my latest obsessions…Cauliflower rice! I am a cauliflower freak and this alternative to rice is carb free, super light, healthy and satisfying. Cut the cauliflower in florets, throw it in the food processor and bam you have “rice”! I sautéed it with coconut oil, leeks, onion, farmers market garlic and finished it off with some walnuts. YUM

Hope this post inspires you to go to your local green market, stay in more often, and eat yummy, tasty and clean food!

Anonymous said: Views Saint Laurent bags? & Celine black trapeze?

Personally not a fan of the Céline trapeze bags, I rather like the big plain totes or the suede one with the chain handle. I quite like some of the Saint Laurent bags. I think their sac du jour in suede is quite chic and classic and I also really like the Saint Laurent “Betty”, even though I am not one for smaller bags. I find the Betty super chic and cool especially in black or tobacco suede.

I’m sorry! That is certainly not the impression I am trying to give off! I try to answer everything! I have been quite busy lately and have not been able to commit as much time to the blog as I’d like to. I am very opening to answering questions and encourage people to do so!
