INTERVIEW WITH LAURIE

How do you stay healthy with a busy schedule?

Always carry real food snacks.  Eat as few foods that require opening packages as possible.  This is a carryover from when my kids were little and my bag almost always contained an avocado, a banana, or a container of edamame.

I carry a giant water bottle to hydrate all day

Stack healthy habits into normal day-to-day activities.  Do squats while folding laundry, deep breathing exercises in the shower,  walking outside while talking on the phone or returning texts.

If you could eat one cuisine for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

Beans and rice in any spice combo.  Regardless of the spice combination or additional veggies, beans and rice is my ultimate comfort food.  

What’s your favorite healthy snack?

An apple with some type of nut butter!

Can you share something about yourself with us we may not know?

Since early 2020 I have been transitioning our front and back yards into natural and pollinator friendly edible and medicinal landscaping, particularly with native plants whenever possible.  Luckily we do not have an HOA, because this has involved very slowly transitioning away from a grass lawn.

Do you have a favorite inspirational podcast or book?

I am inspired by the stories of other people, regardless of their situation.  I adore listening to Story Corps from NPR.  They are typically rather short, recorded by the people involved, and all are preserved at the Library of Congress.  

What’s your all time favorite song to work out to?

The song I start when I want to push myself a little harder while running is usually either Ballroom Blitz or just about anything by P!nk

 

 

Tell us how you first go interested in health and wellness.

This was a slow transition over time, starting in my early 20’s.  One grandmother had dementia, my grandfather had cardiovascular health issues, and I wanted to work on prevention rather than waiting for a diagnosis.  It started with regular cardio exercise, and I just build on it year by year.  

 

What is your spirit animal and why?

I love crows.  I associate a crow with ingenuity, a sense of playful community, and an ability to adapt.
