It’s been a hectic stretch. I recently moved my life to New York City after calling Boston home for the past 19 years. I also co-authored a cookbook called Real Fit Kitchen that hit bookstores in the beginning of October. None of this was part of my plan about a year ago. When it rains, it really pours and often it’s not predictable. You have no choice but to go with it. Get wet. Right now, I’m soaked.

Transition is equal parts exhilarating and challenging. You forget how much you take for granted at times like these. Simple things such as knowing how to get around town without glancing at a map every 3 minutes or asking a surly-looking stranger for help.

Transition begs for mindfulness. I notice the things that I probably won’t notice after a few more months. The colorful subway tiles.

The independence and resolve of elderly as they navigate the NYC streets with confidence at their own pace. The security guards at the new office.

Off the Mat, Onto the Plate: Quinoa is Sexy.

Rebecca Pacheco, creator of and Boston-area yoga teacher just gets it. Food is a crazy thing for so many health-conscious yogis. She listens. She’s a leader. People want to know what she eats. She silently leads by example. Ladies & gents, OmGal rocks.

We recently sat down together to chat about some of the nutrition buzz circling the yoga world and beyond.  Oh, and we captured a little video.  We’ll be posting more videos in our new Off The Mat, Onto The Plate series. (more…)

Change is good, right? Right?

Hello there! Welcome to my very first post as The Plate Coach.

The past month has been a whirlwind with a major job transition and prepping the launch of my new website. I’m happy to finally be here!
