The one snack you can always find in my carry on is...Trail mix of raw nuts, seeds, and dried fruit are my go-to’s.
Tell us your in-flight rituals.
You can always find me doing yoga in my seat. If I’m traveling on a 747 internationally, I’ll head to the upper deck and roll out my yoga mat in the exit aisle.
How do you conquer jet lag once you've arrived?
I continue my day at whatever time I land (if it's morning I have breakfast and get my day started or night I have dinner and go to bed). I make sure to get a workout in even if I'm tired. And I just tell myself that jet lag can wait for when I get home!
Which fitness icon best describes your 'workout on the road' style?
None… for me it’s all about yoga. I have a daily Mysore Ashtanga practice that happens in my hotel room.
How do you keep sickness at bay?
As a chef, I’m always on the look out for ways to enjoy local healthy foods. By sticking to light meals and drinking green tea I’m able to keep my body balanced and healthy.
What's your 'go-to' restaurant item?
Salad and some kind of noodle dish.
What do you do to stay grounded?
As you may have noticed, my yoga is dear and keeps me grounded. Combine that practice with meditation every morning and a hot bath at night, and I feel connected to myself.
What is your preferred method of staying connected with loved ones?
Generally when I'm away, I'm away. In other words, I let people know that I'll be in touch when I return. I might send a card, but rarely.
