(Ketanga) If you had to eat one meal for the rest of your life what would it be?

What is one Instagram account that everyone should be following? Name one for Foodspo and one for Fitspo!
For lifestyle & mindful living, I love @thewellnecessities because Lisa is so down to earth and a gem of a human. For food, I let lots of inspiration from @thetoastedpinenut.
What is your go-to dinner on the road?
I mostly eat homemade meals when I'm home. So, when I travel, my favorite thing is to try as much local food as I can. I gather lots of recommendations, do my research and map out the spots I'd like to try along my route. I like to try whatever the region is best known for!
Favorite type of group workout?
I love boxing! It is so invigorating and freeing!
What excites you about hosting a fitness retreat?
Connecting with each other. I was astounded by the support and love that came from the group on our last retreat. Many people, myself included, traveled alone without knowing anyone else on the trip. But by the end of a few days, we had so many incredible shared experiences together and each person contributed such positive energy in their own unique way. I stay in touch with many from the retreat- was just emailing with one attendee this past week and getting breakfast with another next week!
One superfood you can’t live without?
Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
I have an obsession with long haired dachshunds. Watch out, I will stop any dachshund walking down the street to see hi! My family just got an English Cream Miniature Long Haired Dachshund and she lights up my whole world. Check out her extreme cuteness at @RoxieDoxie
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Go for it. Every time I've taken a leap with my life or career, it has been incredibly rewarding. It is easy to stay in my comfort zone, and sometimes I can stay there a bit longer than I wish I did. Putting yourself out there takes guts and isn't always easy, but each time that I do, I learn and grow as a human.
