Best advice to make your kids eat healthy / What is in their lunchbox?
I always add a piece of fruit or some raw veggies in their lunch boxes.  Give them healthy options:  Do you want an apple or raisins or a banana or a granola bar?  Try not to give them give them the junkfood option whenever possible.

 Kid gear you couldn't have lived without:
Flushable wipes and LL Bean stainless steel water bottles and Episencial Face Balm.

Mantra to keep calm in chaotic moments: 
Life is so hectic as it is and I always try to simplify my life as much as possible.  If I have a bad day, accept it and move on.  Tomorrow is another day...

Tricks to keep in shape:
I walk or run whenever I can...and drink lots of water. 

Best busy mom beauty trick:
As a wife, mom to 4 kids, and running my own business, my life is full and hectic!  But, I alway take some quiet time for myself everyday.  I get up early everyday before everyone else does and that is my quiet time to drink my coffee, meditate and prepare for the day.  I always leave the house with a little lip color and a great accessory piece like a statement necklace or bracelet to add to my wardrobe. 

One green guilt:
I need to be more diligent about re-cycling!
