One of my favorite snacks of all time comes from my travels to Athens, Greece. Greece is often known for it’s love of yogurt (hence, ‘Greek Yogurt’). If you don’t have an issue with dairy then I would suggest ‘Fage Greek Yogurt’ otherwise I use Almond Yogurt. I’ll have this as for dessert, snack, or sometimes a sweet breakfast! I add the chia seeds to the yogurt to create a texture to resemble ‘frog eye pudding’. Plus the added fiber slows down the blood sugar spikes that may come from the honey we are drizzling happily over our snack.
Try it with your combination of fruits and toppings… this is my favorite and the way that I first tried it in Greece 8 years ago!
Chia Yogurt with Apples, Strawberries, Almonds, and a Honey Drizzle
1/2 cup of Yogurt (Almond or FAGE Greek or yogurt of your choice)
1 Tbsp. Chia Seeds
1/2 small apple, chopped
2 or 3 Strawberries, thinly sliced (or sliced Grapes)
7 almonds, roughly chopped or sliced
Honey, for drizzling
Stir together Yogurt and Chia seeds. Set aside while you chop and slice the apple, strawberries, and almonds. Top with your toppings and drizzle with honey. Sit back and enjoy.

The number one question I get in emails is “How do I become a model?” It’s a great question and it’s much better to ask myself or another model rather than a local agency that you don’t know that much about. Why? Because you have no idea if what they’re telling you is the truth or if they have an ulterior motive. I decided to share my story and my advice in two parts so that you can avoid the same mistakes that I made.
When I was 18 I was scouted at the University of Utah campus by ‘Tru Talent Management’ in SLC, Utah. I was naive and dumb enough to go into the agency and sign a contract with them that day. I had told them I wanted to talk to my parents about it and think about things but they had told me that they could get me a job with Billabong (since Billabong frequently signs their models out of Utah… not) if i signed that day. Of course… being naive, young, and dumb, I signed the contract that would make me pay $2,000 over the course of 18 months for a photo shoot that would make me ‘the next big thing in modeling.’ 5 months later I had $0.00 to my name (something that I had never experienced) and had to make an awesome call to my parents for help.
