With 18 restaurants across the United States, including the newly-opened Fatbird Southern Kitchen & Bar in New York’s meat packing district, world-renowned chef Cat Cora still manages to find time for herself outside of the kitchen. Cora works out seven days a week and incorporates cardio for at least 45 minutes a day to help keep her balanced and energized. Here, Cora shares what's in her gym bag, including her tried and true beauty essentials and favorite go-to snacks.
