How I Kicked Off My Stilettos and Broke In My Stovetop to Create Healthier Habits
I was thrilled to land a job
in public relations in New
York City after graduation.
But five years later,
I was a stressed-out corporate
busy to cook, I relied on
microwaves, takeout, restaurants,
and street carts
for breakfast, lunch, and
Realizing I’d become a
junk food and sugar addict,
I broke in my little-used
kitchen and began
to reclaim my health. I
discovered whole foods
and the way they made
me look and feel mentally
and physically fulfilled as
never before. I was eating
more meals at home, bringing lunch to work, and feeling more energetic than ever.
Inspired by what I’d accomplished and equally unfulfilled in my corporate job, I knew
it was time to take another leap. In 2009, I became a certified holistic health coach and
started my own business so that I could inspire and motivate others to make healthy
changes—whether it’s cooking at home, making better food choices, or letting go of sugar
cravings—as a first step toward a healthier lifestyle.
