What’s your best tip on how to stay positive?
Gratitude. As cliché as it sounds gratitude will always pull me out of the darkest moments. It can be as grand or as small but these days when it seems there’s always an avalanche of worries, changing the phrase “I have to” into “I get to” always keeps me pushing forward with positivity. 💖
What’s your workout routine?
You know it’s funny when I was younger it was a lot of high impact dance, competitive cheerleading and gymnastics. Then my body really took on some stress during both pregnancies. It was after kids where I found more balance and healing with low impact movement like walking, hiking, yoga and barre. But I have to say my latest obsession and guilty pleasure has to be “Just Dance” on Nintendo Switch with my sister! 💃🏻🎶
How do you consider yourself a “game changer?” This is 100% open to your interpretation!
The game always changes but can you adapt enough to still thrive and excel in the game? That’s the key and the answer is yes. I’m a game changer because adapting is knowing what is lacking and stepping up to fulfill that role, to take up space, to be an advocate for your community. As a game changer, I’m doing just that by making Whole30, healthy recipes and education about wellness practices more accessible to my Filipino community and beyond.
What’s the best thing you do for your personal health everyday (mental or physical)?
Aside from gratitude, healthy movement combined with Whole30 has been the greatest act of self-care and self-love. Whether I’m doing a round of Whole30 or not incorporating a Whole30 meal into my daily routine does wonders for my mood, energy level and self-confidence. Combine that with healthy movement and it’s my ultimate glow-up secret weapon. ✨
What is your favorite Chomps product?
Italian Style and Jalapeño hands down are my favorite go-to meat sticks. They’re both full of so much flavor like a meal in one and taste amazing on top of a salad. 🥗💚
How does Chomps fuel your lifestyle?
In this household I wear many hats as a full-time mom, part-time teacher, caregiver, nurse, content creator and Whole30 coach. I work around the clock most days but Chomps is always a convenient Whole30 Approved snack that is always there for me when I’m on the go or when I need a protein packed pick-me-upper.
