This time last year, I was slathering on cortisol creams to battle my eczema and having heart palpitations. I almost always ate out or ordered in. I felt exhausted. Today my skin is glowing and I am full of energy without my usual caffeine fix. My day started with a tasty breakfast that I made, journaling, and setting an intention to meditate on. It’s part of the daily practices that I’ve been working on with holistic wellness coach Jaquy Yngvason to build healthy habits that are as routine as brushing my teeth in the morning. Gone are the days when I would pick up a can of tuna fish and potato chips on the go to save time. I now enjoy every meal. I love cooking and savor simple snacks like freshly roasted carrots in coconut oil. Discovering things like how black beans and dates can make up the most deliciously moist protein-packed brownie is as exciting to me as my new favorite local Greenpoint haunt. And after seeing a lifelong autoimmune skin disease go away, I’ve become a big believer in the power of food.

That’s why I am super thrilled that Jaquy will be coming to Greenpoint to host a workshop this Saturday (2/18) in one of my favorite neighborhood spots, Maha Rose (97 Green St). It’s still the start of 2017 and a good time to set the tone for the rest of the year with self care and love!
