CAROLYN ASKS LAUREN:

What are three things that are always in your fridge?
I always have omega-3 eggs, a random ½ avocado and hot sauces (plural) for quality condiments.

You say, winging it and wellness don’t go together, why not?
Healthy eating doesn’t mean foregoing all your favorite foods. Forethought or planning changes everything. The fewer food decisions you’re making on the spot (when rushed, hungry, tired or tipsy..) the better.

What’s the workout you do most often?
I tend to go “all in” for a workout and then inevitably “all out”. Currently I’m doing SLT. Running is always in my life to some extent.

Where in NYC should I go for coffee? Green juice? Lunch? And Dinner?
I’d say Irving Farm coffee, Fika’s matcha latte and Lulitonix juices. My fave juice is called Fresh. Le Pain Quotien or Wisefish poke’ for lunch. Narcissa or Mermaid Inn for dinner (at Mermaid try the hot and dirty martini).

LAUREN ASKS CAROLYN:

What three things are always in your fridge?
Roasted veggies (I make them in bulk once or twice a week), pesto, and kombucha — and I can’t leave out several bags of organic coffee.

What’s the workout you do most often?
Soul Cycle is my go to, but I’m very picky with my teachers (Mantas, Emma, and Karyn). I also love y7 yoga, the Fhitting room, and long runs are my meditation.

You say a healthy life includes a social life (phew), what’s your #1 social eating tip?
I say one vice per night… I’ll explain when you come to see me.

I hate “guilty pleasure”, but any food you can’t be trusted around? In other words, tell the internet you’re not a perfect eater.
Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter. Do not let me near a jar of that, single serve packets only!

I’m coming to NYC where should I go for coffee? Green juice? Lunch? And Dinner?
Coffee: Bluestone Lane (bonus points for all the sexy Australians)
Green juice: The Butcher’s Daughter, goddess of green and vampire slayer elixir shot.
Lunch: sweetgreen for a quick salad, or Café Gitane for the pomegranate salmon salad.
Dinner: Café Clover or The Little Beet Table. The crudité spreads are insane!

CAROLYN BROWN, MS RD

Carolyn Brown, MS RD, received her masters in clinical nutrition at New York University after receiving her BS in psychology from Tulane University. Carolyn joined Foodtrainers over five years ago but wasn’t always a nutrition nerd. She battled with the freshman 15 and a love-hate (or hate-hate) relationship with the elliptical machine. Going on Semester at Sea, with travel in South America and Southeast Asia, ignited an interest in travel and international ingredients and cuisine that eventually led Carolyn to nutrition. Now, in addition to her nutrition degrees she is a certified yoga guide, has run the marathon, and is a spin and snowboard junkie. Carolyn is a huge advocate of “you can live a healthy life with out losing a social life”.

Pre-Foodtrainers, Carolyn focused on several nutrition specialty areas from weight management to cardiac health and pediatric/adolescent medicine while at New York-Presbyterian hospital.

Carolyn has been featured on: The TODAY show, Dr. Oz, FOX, health.com, CBS news, WebMD, TIME.com Refinery29, Cosmopolitan, Shape Magazine, Equinox Q Blog, AM New York, and the New York Daily News. She loves giving talks on “Healthy Happy Hour” and “Smart Snacks”.

I always have omega-e eggs, a random ½ avocado and hot sauces (definitely plural). I have an affinity for quality condiments.

I tend to go “all in” for a workout and then inevitably “all out”. Currently I’m doing SLT. Running is always in my life to some extent.

I’m coming to NYC where should I go for coffee? Green juice? Lunch? And Dinner? (Please be brief, haha)
I’d say Irving Farm coffee, Fika’s matcha latte. Lulitonix for juice; my fave is “fresh”. Le Pain Quotien for lunch, no matter the location it’s always good. Narcissa or Mermaid Inn for dinner (at Mermaid try the hot and dirty martini).
