I often get asked what my life looks like since becoming a Health Coach, so each month, I dedicate a post to a behind the scenes look. I spent most of July working and cooking in sunny LA.
On July 4th, I headed out to Los Angeles for about 3 weeks, to cook, host an LA Launch party for The Real Food Grocery Guide, and evaluate whether or not I want to make the move to LA.
If you’ve been following my insta-stories, you know I love fresh carrot juice – it’s so great for skin: it’s high in beta-carotene, the precursor to Vitamin A, a critical nutrient for clear, acne-free skin; studies have shown it can not only prevent, but reverse photo-aging (aka damage to the skin caused by the sun) and they even promote a golden tan-like glow (even without sun exposure!) According to a peer reviewed study in PLOS One, skin tone can change in just six weeks after an increase in fruit and vegetable consumption – particularly beta-carotene and lycopene rich produce. Carrots are super high in beta-carotene. Outfit: @sweatybetty Juice: @jambajuice Photo: @irina_smirnova_foto
As you can see, LA is fabulous. Sun, beach, city, farmers markets, organic food everywhere, yoga…what more could you ask for?
I want to make the move, but problem is the BF lives in Dubai so that will take me even further from him sooooo I now have to convince him of the benefits of moving to LA 🙂
I spent the last week of July in New York making some tweaks to my EatSLIM program for September, namely I will now be including a one-on-one session as part of the package, to help participants get personalized, targeted advice and guidance, in addition to the videos and weekly live group Q+As.
And that was my fun, fabulous July!
