Favorite healthy breakfast:
Lox, cream cheese and capers on half a bagel.
Weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten:
At a Mayan Mexican restaurant Xochi here in Houston - they have fried queso topped with gusanos (worms found in mezcal/tequila bottles) and chapulines (grasshoppers) and it was SO GOOD.
Best advice you’ve ever received:
“Don’t take criticism from anyone you wouldn’t take advice from.” Also, “Life is short, buy the shoes.”
