Tell us a bit about the projects you are currently working on.
Currently I have been working a lot on Doc's Family Farms which is my family's farm in Northern California! I do all the creative and design, so it's been a lot of fun working with different designers and artists to create new things. We have so much coming out soon so STAY TUNED!!
How do you start the day?
I love a morning routine, it really sets the pace for my whole day! I start with making a buttered coffee in the morning which is coffee blended with ghee and whatever additional add ins you'd like. I love adding collagen and maca! After my coffee I have been taking my dog on a walk through the neighborhood. I like to work out in the mornings; yoga, pilates or boxing have been my recent favorites! My routines can change often but I always try to stick to something as it helps me stay grounded in my life. Then I go right into my skin routine which is using all Osea products, I have been using them for about 3 years now and they're my absolute favorites!
What's always in your fridge?
Sauerkraut, lemons, elderberry syrup!
What’s always in your pantry?
Peanut butter or almond butter! I love peanut butter and rice cakes as a snack.
How were you introduced to the power of plants?
I worked on a farm in my early 20s which guided me to the importance of growing plants. I started learning to distill plants I was growing which led me deeper into herbal medicine. I am a self taught herbalist, which led to me starting potions n` motions.
What do you turn to, to make you feel your best?
Nourishing Traditions cookbook.
Do you have a favorite ritual?
My ritual usually involves smell, every morning or throughout the day I light incense. When I travel around the world that is also something I always get or bring with me to help me feel grounded.
How do you end your day?
As I like to start my morning, I like to end my day with a walk as well. After the walk I like to stretch using Kyle Miller's yin class which you can download off her website. Really helps me have a sound sleep!
Who is inspiring you in the food world?
Aran Goyoaga. I got her cookbook as someone had mentioned it to me and now I love all her recipes! Working on getting the gluten-free bread recipe down!!
What ingredient are you most excited about right now?
My friend has got me really into cooking potatoes in stock with mustard, olive oil, lemon, oregano and salt. Then roasting them after letting them cook in the stock mix! I have been OBSESSEDDDD.
What music do you listen to while you cook?
I love listening to music while I cook, and I love listening to Ethiopian jazz.
