Dave Asprey Of Bulletproof
If I Could Give One Piece Of Health Advice, It Would Be: Screw perfection. You can always do something better, no matter how perfect it is. So resolve to do something better every day, and stop worrying about perfect!
Laird Hamilton, athlete
On Healthy Relationships: Listen and be attentive even when you have no idea what your partner is talking about. Ignore what she is saying, but understand what she really means and needs.
Pete Evans, Paleo Chef
Simple Go-To Recipe: Cauliflower fried rice with free-range bacon. Rather than eating this well-known Asian staple dish with the traditional bland white rice, I choose to replace it with nutrient-rich cauliflower (my favorite veg). Tossed together with my fave ingredients such as tamari, egg, veggies, ginger, garlic and bacon, it makes a delicious mid-week meal.
Adam Rapoport, Bon Appétit Editor In Chief
Ingredient That Can Save Anything: Olive oil. Good extra-virgin olive oil – it makes everything infinitely better and lusher and more delicious. It’s definitely worth the investment.
Typical Week Of Fitness: Since I have such a busy schedule I really try to get to the gym first thing in the morning for a good workout. If there’s time, I’ll go five times a week. Outside of the gym I’m big into soccer, surfing and riding my skateboard.
Dr. Mark Hyman
On The Go: Keep an emergency food kit. For instance, pack wild-caught canned salmon, a small bag of raw almonds, and a bottle of water.
Chris Salgardo, Kiehl's founder
Crazy Health Ideas: Whenever I feel an illness coming on, I swear by Wellness Formula Herbal Defense. It’s amazing. I also really believe in manuka honey.
James Colquhoun of Food Matters
On Gut Health: Curb your soft drink intake with probiotic drinks such as kombucha and kefir. They’ll support your good gut bacteria, helping you to digest your food and get the most benefits out of what you eat. They’ll also help boost your immune system and reduce any sluggishness.
Dr. Daniel Amen
Healthy Eating Tip: Prioritize. Eat healthy foods before bad ones. You’ll find you shift your diet by default. If you fill up on your veggies first, you’ll ultimately eat less of what’s left on your plate.
Rudy Mettia of Udaya
Current Mantra: Forgive within 30 seconds – this applies to yourself as well as others. All anyone wants is another chance to be better.
