Valentine’s Day Party at Whole Foods Market Brentwood – So Much Fun!

ValentinesDay

I had so much fun making healthy Valentine’s Day treats at Whole Foods Market Brentwood – yum!

 

Thank you to everyone who came out and joined us at Whole Foods Market in Brentwood for a fun day filled with awesome music, yummy food samples from various vendors, and delicious strawberries covered in chocolate, coconut shreds, and almonds! I have partnered with Whole Foods Market Brentwood and Whole Foods Market West LA and will be giving monthly workshops at each location. For Valentine’s Day, I wanted to be sure to have delicious, healthy treats that everyone could enjoy. We used Enjoy Life chocolate chips, which are vegan, gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free and so rich! I had a blast cheering on the participants of the LA Marathon, connecting with members of the Brentwood community, and spreading the chocolate-covered strawberry goodness!

My next workshop will be on Monday, March 21st at 6:00 PM at Whole Foods Market West LA where I will be talking about health eating for glowing skin. I will be giving the same workshop on Tuesday, March 22nd at Whole Foods Market Brentwood, so be sure to join us at either location! Come learn about which foods will give you gorgeous skin vs. which ones should be avoided because they wreak havoc on your health. Sample nutritious smoothies, meet like-minded people, and be part of a fun, interactive workshop. I hope to see you there! And thanks again to everyone who joined us in Brentwood yesterday!

New Year’s Workshop Was a Success!

MewiththeWomenWorkshop

On January 30th I hosted a New Year’s workshop at One Roof in Venice Beach. I am so pleased to share that the workshop was a success! I wanted to provide women with the time and space that they needed to relax, reflect, set an intention for the way that they want to live their lives, and come up with a plan to reach each and every one of their goals.

We spent the day talking about what we want our lives to look like and we tapped into our heart’s deepest desires. We wrote in our journals, created plans for our goals, made vision boards to help our dreams become a reality, meditated, ate delicious plant-based foods, and took part in an interactive talk that I lead. It was incredibly touching to see so many women come together, open up about their fears and desires, bond, support one another, and know that they are not alone in their joys and frustrations.

I am excited to share that I will definitely be putting together more workshops in the future, so please stay tuned!

It turned out to be a nice morning/afternoon, so we decided to sit outside. Here are the women creating vision boards.

JoAnnandMonicaVisionBoards

Like the retreat that I hosted in October, we ended up having lots of mother/daughter duos at the workshop! Here are JoAnn and Monica, sharing their vision boards. JoAnn is working on finding balance in her life and making more time for herself. Monica recently got married – congratulations, Monica! She and her husband Ted would like to start a family soon and they are thinking that Monica should try to get pregnant by the end of the year. Because of this, Monica wants to eat healthier and stay active so she can be in the best shape of her life when she gets pregnant and so that she can also pass on good eating/living habits to her future child(ren). I can’t wait to learn more, Monica!

LynneAnneVisionBoard

Lynne-Anne created a great vision board that covers the four main aspects of her life. In each corner of her vision board are the letters “LOVE” because everything she does is surrounded by love. I love this, Lynne-Anne!

LynneAnneRuthVisionBoards

Here is Lynne-Anne with her mom, Ruth. Ruth is retired and wanting to enjoy her life and play more. She has an adorable cat that cuddles with her, so you’ll notice the two kitties on her vision board :).

GwennaVisionBoard

Gwenna created four vision boards! She’d like to do things fully so she is working on giving everything that she does 100% of her effort. She wants to see things through to the end. She is also working on getting fit and eating healthily. I can’t wait for updates on your health journey, Gwenna!

ElizabethVisionBoard

Elizabeth created two vision boards :).

NicoleVisionBoard

Nicole has been wanting to go on a cruise to Alaska with her husband so you’ll notice that she has a picture of a cruise on the top left corner of her vision board. She also wants to be authentic; she has a top-level position at her company where she is not only the youngest employee, but she’s also the only woman and the only minority. Though she is required to dress professionally and “be polished” at work, with her hair straightened, she sees her true self as rocking an afro, smiling, and wearing a dashiki, which she does on weekends :).

VirginiaVisionBoard

You may have noticed Virginia from my last retreat – I love Virginia! She has such a warm, fun energy and she’s always open to attending these workshops and tapping into her true self. As a mom, daughter, and teacher, she is working on saying “no” more often so that she can say “yes” to herself. It’s taking some time, but I am so proud of her for finally prioritizing self-care!

PamVisionBoard

Pam is retired and loving life! She is traveling and taking the time to enjoy herself and her family. There may be something else that she wants to pursue in life, so with some encouragement from her daughter Nicole, we’ll see what life has in store for Pam!
