Design Sponge is one of those sites I look to - not only for inspiration in my daily life, but also as a blogger.  Grace Bonney, the founder, always seems to get it right.  She seems to possess an effortless access to parts of her brain that I have spent several decades searching for. (I'm still looking.)  And yet, she remains completely approachable.

Grace and I talk quite a bit about dieting - we discuss her eating disorder growing up, and food as medicine with Type 1 Diabetes.  She is married to the food writer and private chef Julia Turshen, so of course I am picking her brain about that. More info is on The Actor's Diet website - follow me on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest, and watch videos on YouTube.

Show Notes:

  • Grace's newest book, In the Company of Women.
  • Sticky Beliefs - The story you tell yourself that you think is true.  (Grace and I have had the same exact one re: sweets).
  • High Protein Waffles (below), Kimchi Eggs, and Julia's recipe for Kimchi Fried Rice.
  • Food Gift Ideas: Dark Chocolate, Breakfast Gifts (Coffee, Pancake Mix).
  • Restaurants: Gaskins in Germantown, NY and Num Pang inside the Chelsea Market, Manhattan.
  • Grace's website | @designsponge on social media | website
