Here are Aliza Sokolow’s answers awaiting on some images to go along with her feature.
What does good food mean to you?
Good food to me means locally grown and fresh. I mostly eat vegetables and knowing where my food comes from and is grown is important to me.
How to you start your mornings?
I wake up before the sun comes out and go work out.
What are your must use daily beauty products?
I use Supergoop Sunscreen, RMS under eye concealer and Lily and Lolo underage concealer. Sometimes Rituel De Fille cheek color. That’s the extent of my makeup routine. I always curl my lashes and brush up my brows.
How do you de-stress?
Spending time with friends, making cookie dough, doing the NY Times crossword puzzle and listening to music. Then eating cookie dough raw or baked. I like to cozy up to a movie or a TV show too.
Favorite mood-boosting meal?
I love to eat watermelon. It’s super hydrating and sweet.
Whats a dinner recipe you currently have on repeat?
I make a slow roasted salmon with dill, smashed potatoes and a big salad. My people haven’t gotten sick of it yet.:)
What is your daily mantra?
Gratitude is the best attitude.
