An investment in your beautiful body. I based an entire book around Clean Green Drinks and the Vitamix blender passed every test with flying colors. I absolutely recommend this gorgeous blender to anyone looking to boost their health and clean living! So fast, efficient, quiet, and just all-around perfect-o. I blend a green smoothie in here 1-2 x a day. Vitamix and I have donated many machines to charitable organizations and schools and I’ve taught hundreds of students in my classes using these machines. Also preferred by all chefs, we cook using only the Vitamix in professional kitchens. It’s got my A+++ seal of CK approval!

Pour over coffee, the best way to go. The Chemex has changed the way I drink. I actually use an herbal coffee in mine; Teeccino, no caffeine jolt necessary. The Chemex also makes for an amazing gift for your friends and better than your Dad’s 80’s electric drip machine!

Grandpa’s (Jiichan’s) Feathers from Japan


My Japanese Grandfather used to collect these feathers in the park back in Kyushu, Japan; my Mother’s hometown. I cherish them each day as they are on my desk for nostalgic reasons and possibly for good luck.

Soma Pitcher


Soma, my friend Mike Del Ponte’s company from San Francisco, is crushing it in the world of hydration right now. Not only does my Soma look good on my kitchen counter and keeps me hydrated, but every filter you purchase gives back to charity water. Feel good about where you put your dollar.

Journey to the Heart


A daily devotional. I purchase this book as gifts for all of my friends and I love the positivity and light Melody Beattie brings into my life. I recommend that everyone have a copy of this beautifully published book. I bought mine used, about 10 years ago, and it’s my most read book still to date.

Baachan’s Cups


My beautiful Baachan’s (Japanese Grandmother’s) cups. I use them for genmaicha green tea and green jasmine tea, and even a cup of matcha. She is my grace and I’m always reminded of her when I use these cups. Ain’t no better props than Grandma’s used goods.

Jade Yoga Mat

I elevate my spirit and mind by keeping a weekly yoga practice, meditating at home, and stretching out the kinks whenever possible. This yoga mat is my key to staying sane in my crazy busy world and living in this city of hustle. It’s easy to travel with; I toss it straight into my suitcase and go.
