I just got back from an INCREDIBLE trip to California for the Nutritious Life Masterclass in Santa Monica. I am so proud of our small team and super impressed by all of the amazing women who attended.
Masterclass was a two-day event bringing together some of the leading experts in the wellness industry to discuss nutrition science and trends, eat delicious (and healthy!) food, work out with top trainers, and learn business and counseling skills.
While all of our speakers were informative and inspiring, some personal highlights were:
- Sam Polk who talked about Making Healthy Food Affordable for All. Sam is the founder of Everytable, a grab-and-go style eatery in Los Angeles that aims to provide nutritious meals at an affordable cost. They price meals according to the neighborhoods they serve making nutritious food accessible to the local community. I was moved by the mission and stopped by the location in Santa Monica. Everything looked seriously delicious and healthy for the same cost as a traditional fast food meal.
- Kelsey Patel, a spiritual empowerment coach and Reiki master in LA, led the group through a powerful discussion followed by an introduction to Reiki, which was new for me. Kelsey was truly inspiring and made everyone in the group feel comfortable to open up and share their fears. Early on a Saturday morning, she really brought the room alive.
- Pamela Salzman, a natural foods chef, led a discussion on adapting recipes to fit different lifestyles. I resonated with Pamela's philosophy on cooking with whole foods and love that her goal is to get clients more comfortable in the kitchen so that they have to confidence to experience with flavors and cook on their own.
I am so proud to be a part of the Nutritious Life team and am already counting down to Masterclass 2018!
