What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?
I lie in bed for a few minutes, breathe, stretch, and set my intentions for the day. Then I make my warm lemon water and coffee.
What first drew you to the business of natural health and wellness?
Every year as a child I would pick out seeds and plant a garden with my grandfather. I loved to be in the garden, watching things grow and eating food that I had started from a little seed. I would also help my mother can peaches, tomatoes, grape juice, pickles, you name it. Growing our own food and putting it up for the winter was something we did every year. I learned first hand how much better food the food that I had grown tasted compared most things from a grocery store. I have found that the cleaner I eat, the better I feel. My mission is to radically revolutionize the concept of what healthy eating can be. My intention is to teach people how to have pleasure and heal your body at the same time.
Do you have any special sayings or expressions?
It is all about having a life and body you love, not trying to shrink a body you hate.
Most important quality in a friend?
Reliability, flexibility, and an ability and go deep. Get a little woo woo and laugh until it hurts.
What’s the best compliment you ever received?
Being told that I am a really good listener and people feel comfortable sharing and opening up to me. Also, being told I am a great hostess. That people feel comfortable, safe and comfortable in my home. Being told that I help to connect and nourish someone to their selves.
Do you feel differently about yourself now from how you felt when you were younger? How?
Yes! I feel at home in my body and my own skin. I trust that I am enough just as I am. I know that I am more than just a number on a scale. For a long time growing up, it was just about how skinny or athletic I was. The external was more important than the internal. Now that has reversed.
MythbusterBeauty is all about being REAL. In a world and in an industry where many things are based upon appearance, what does the term “real” mean to you?
Confidence. Confidence in who you are and what you have to offer without having to modify it. Different. Real to me is all about being different. Big, small, blond, brown, blue or green eyes. etc.
