My Healthy: Leah Cohen
The celeb chef's favorite snack, swimsuit, and more
As chef-owner of two successful restaurants, Leah Cohen had to master high-stress environments. While many celebrity chefs might not take regular shifts in their kitchens, Cohen prefers a more hands-on management style that keeps her constantly bouncing back between her Manhattan mainstay Pig & Khao and the newly-opened Piggyback Bar in Jersey City. When not working, writing her upcoming cookbook, or spending time with her newlywed husband, the Top Chef alum clears her mind by getting in the boxing ring or swimming laps. Here, she shares her fitness essentials.
Cleto Reyes Women’s Training Gloves
"I love boxing since it's a great way to relieve stress. For Christmas, I got myself this pair; they have really nice wrist support and you can also choose the option for extra padding."
“My husband bought me these wireless headphones. I listen to mostly pop and hip-hop when I’m exercising—anything that gets me fired up. I love the new Lil’ Kim and Remy Ma song so that’s on my playlist.”
Califa Farms Unsweetened Almond Milk
“I chose to eliminate most dairy from my diet. So unless I’m eating out or doing a tasting, I opt for almond milk.”
VIX MIDNIGHT MADALENA ONE-PIECE
"When I'm doing laps, I use this swimsuit. I love the brand because they're nicely designed and stay on your body well (even the two pieces)."
