Quotable Monday: Let Go of Your Grievances

Read full article | 2 Comments

This weekend I was lucky enough to attend Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s Live Fall IINto Action Event in NYC. The event was absolutely amazing, with inspiring speakers like founder Joshua Rosenthal and mind-body expert Deepak Chopra. Throughout the weekend, we discussed everything from leadership and marketing to raw food, going vegan and the obesity epidemic in America.

One of the discussions on spirituality and faith really stood out to  me, and I’d like to share one of the quotes with you that really struck a chord.

Tuesday Talk: A little Update on this Healthy Chick

Read full article | 13 Comments

Good morning everyone, and sorry I’ve been kinda a ghost lately. It’s just that I’ve got a lot on my mind, and am now finally going to share all of that with you!

1. For one, I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to become a certified health coach with a holistic focus, and will begin taking online classes in the fall. I couldn’t be more excited to go back to school and continue my education, especially with something that is so me. It’s no doubt that I love writing, I love helping people, and I love anything related to health, nutrition and well-being. So why not throw all of my passions together and make something out it? I’m confident that one day I will become a successful health coach, helping others get back on track and see that living a healthy life style does not have to be difficult. I’ve always been one for a need to feel passionate with what I do in life, and in September I will finally start this journey! More info to come…

This news is extra-exciting because my sister and I are moving into our North End apartment September 1, right when my classes start. She’ll be a great roomie because a.) we rock in the kitchen together and b.) she’ll be a student as well – she’s going to grad school at MGH for Speech Pathology (so proud of her).

2. As you can see, I am testing new blog layouts because I was getting bored with mine – I will stick to this lovely theme for now. It’s simple, creative and fun – which I think portrays Healthy Chicks pretty darn well.

3. I’ve completed my 3rd addition of my self-published cookbook, “Healthy Chicks in the Kitchen,” filled with 60+ simple, wholesome, nutritious recipes for the not-so-simple chick. I’m also dabbling in starting my own greeting card line, including an inspirational postcard segment made by women for women. I’ll show you some samples once they’re printed!

4. On that note, I’ll be at Boston Event Guide’s Shop & Talk this Saturday (from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.) with a “Heathy Chicks” booth. Stop by and say  hi, check out my newest arts ‘n’ crafts, enter my raffle, or purchase a signed cookbook if you’d like. If you don’t have anything going on this weekend and live in Boston, it’s sure to be a fun day, filled with lots of boutiques, spas, free samples and fun with your girlfriends!
