I recently attended my favorite conference and usually look forward to connecting with great people and spending time with my mentors. On my way back from the conference I thought about how fortunate I am to have several people in my life that help me to be the best version of myself. I was also… Continue reading Do You Have A Mentor?
Finding different things to eat can sometimes seem like a task and other times it brings out my creativity. I really wanted pasta a few weeks ago and at the same time was trying to maintain my healthy eating and couldn't find the right compromise that seemed delicious. While browsing through some pictures I remembered… Continue reading It’s Not Pasta, It’s Cabbage!
Ever since I was a child my hair has been an important focus in my life. My hair is healthy, thick, curly, and sometimes unmanageable. Despite the broken combs, tired hands from washing/twisting and the never-ending task of picking up curls of hair from all over, I treat my hair well so I get the… Continue reading Lessons From My Hair
Breakfast is an important meal as it's the time you nourish your body after being asleep for hours. Some may be very traditional with their breakfast, others not so much.

Raise your hand if you like being organized, writing to-do lists, or sorting things. Yep - me too! My friends make fun of my semi-obsessive way of planning and organizing but to be honest, it helps to keep me focused and it makes me less anxious. Almost everything I do, I have a plan for… Continue reading There’s A Plan For That!
Confession: I have difficulty letting go of sweets and resisting the temptation to eat/consume everything sugar related. I can do well for maybe a day or two and then once I get a hint of refined sugar - game over! So, I decided to pay attention to my physical health by going through a slow… Continue reading Foodie Day: Detox Holiday Week

I'm not sure how many of you know this, but I really love food! I literally eat to live and live to eat. I also enjoy trying new recipes and taking pictures of food. There's something very therapeutic about being in the kitchen. I often joke that baking (or cooking) is one of my coping… Continue reading Introducing Foodie Day with Nutella Muffins
