Erin Stewart’s app brings a food & fitness expert into your home

Trained as a natural food chef and professional dancer, culinary and fitness entrepreneur Erin Stewart has an admirable resume. Her pilates and barre classes were sought after in New York City, where she also spent time working in the kitchen at NYC’s legendary Pure Food & Wine. She’s also had a successful food delivery service and wholesome cookie company. Today Erin, who lives in Austin with her husband and two sons, is channeling her energy into Savor + Sweat, a lifestyle platform with an ever-growing library of workouts (200 with new content dropping every week!) and healthy recipes (over 100) and fuses her passions for food, fitness and desire to help women live optimally.

What kind of workouts are on the app?

My method combines sculpting exercises, cardio and mobility that are based on moving to feel good and creating long-lean lines with a focus on posture, form, building muscle tone and endurance. The classes range from 10 minutes to 50 minutes and include athletic barre, dance cardio, HIIT, step cardio, bounce, and stretch & flow classes.


How many days/week do you think the average healthy person should work out?

My recommendation is to aim to incorporate strength training and cardio at least 3-4 days/week with proper rest and recovery between sessions to allow the body to adapt, improve, and to prevent injuries. My HIIT Mat, Athletic Barre using heavy weights, Step and Dance Cardio classes are all great options to choose from on these days. The remaining 3-4 days/week, I recommend alternating slower-paced Athletic Barre, Pilates or Flow classes using your own body weight, resistance bands or lower weights to keep the body moving and promote length and tone.  Aside from the fact that regular exercise has numerous physical benefits, from cardiovascular health to maintaining a healthy weight, moving daily boosts mood, reduces feelings of stress and anxiety, improves sleep quality and confidence so fit in what you can but do something every day. 

Should people be stacking shorties?

I highly recommend stacking Sizzles! My intention when creating my 10-15 minute sizzles was to keep your workouts fun and interesting. You can create your own full body class by stacking an upper body-focused sizzle with a lower body and finishing off with a cardio sizzle, for example. Mix and match depending on the time you have or what you’re feeling that day. 

Do you create your own recipes?

I do! I am a trained natural foods chef and recipe developer. 


How many recipes do you currently have on the app?

Currently, there are over 100 recipes ranging from appetizers, soups, breakfasts, dinners, condiments and desserts. You can filter by season, type of dish, dietary restriction or search specific ingredients. 


On average, how long do your recipes take to make?

I pride myself in making delicious, elegant-looking dishes as approachable as possible! I will continue to develop a recipe until my initial 15+ ingredient creation is cut in half and takes on average 30 minutes to come together before it's ready for the app.


Are the recipes all ‘healthy’?

All of my recipes are based on a whole foods, health-forward approach rich in nutrient-dense, colorful foods with some animal proteins that are raised without antibiotics or hormones. I strive to recommend non-inflammatory ingredients that optimize the body and support a variety of eating styles. You won’t see any dairy, much gluten or find highly processed oils like canola or rapeseed, or refined sugars. I do love my sweets (big chocolate fan!) and I hope that Savor + Sweat introduces you to new alternative ingredients that might be next-level or healing for you and also satisfyingly delicious. 


What made you choose the Golden Beet + Forbidden Rice Salad recipe to share?

My Golden Beet + Forbidden Rice Salad is seasonally appropriate and quintessentially root to stem cooking using the entire vegetable. It’s a fresh, hearty and bright dish that you can make in advance and only tastes better as it sits and the ingredients marinate so it's super weeknight practical but also crowd-pleasing with just a little bit of prep. This grain bowl can stand on its own or as a plant-based entree or can accompany your favorite protein, like flaked wild salmon. The Citrus-Miso Dressing is delicious on any roasted veg or tossed greens so double the batch to have on hand. 

Erin regularly teaches in real life workouts. Keep up on where she’ll be on Instagram at @SavorSweat, check out her website, and of course, download the Savor + Sweat app.

Golden Beet and Forbidden Rice Salad with Orange Miso Dressing


1 cup forbidden black rice

4 medium golden beets, scrubbed and quartered (reserving beet tops)

3 shallots, chopped

1-2 Tbsp extra virgin oil

Sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 small navel oranges, peeled and chopped

4 green onion, thinly sliced

¼ cusp walnuts, roasted and chopped

2 Tbsp sweet miso

1 tbsp minced fresh garlic

¼ cup fresh orange juice

Splash apple cider vinegar

3-4 Tbsp extra virgin oil

½-1 tsp honey


Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a sheet pan with foil.

To cook the rice…

Place the rice with 1 ¾ cups water and a good pinch of sea salt into a medium pot.

Bring to a boil, lower to a simmer, cover and allow to cook for 30 minutes.

Remove from heat and allow to sit with the lid on. Fluff with a fork prior to serving.

Meanwhile, toss the chopped beets with the shallots, olive oil, sea salt and pepper.

Spread evenly onto one half of the sheet pan. Roast until cooked through and fork tender, about 20-25 minutes.

Remove the beets from the oven and allow to cool.

To make the dressing…

Process all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Thin to liking with more orange juice, as needed, until mixture coats the black of a spoon.

Toss the beets and shallots with the rice and a couple Tbsp of the dressing. Fold in the green onion, orange pieces and a handful of beet greens.

Sprinkle in the walnuts and serve.
