Welcome!

Hello and welcome to my blog! I am starting this to share the everyday adventures and happenings I encounter as an artist in NYC. It's a wonderful place and everyday I do my best to look for positive, inspiring energy. Yes, it can be difficult at times but I have recently discovered that if you think positive and emote positive energy, it's easy to stay happy and creative :-)

Yesterday I spent 2 hours in the dance studio playing around with new choreography for a piece I am creating for NYU's Fall Dance Concert. It was a lot of fun to let loose and play with the story line. I went into the rehearsal thinking I was going to use Too Darn Hot (from Kiss Me Kate written by Cole Porter), however after a little bit of playing I began having a dance party to the Pulp Fiction Soundtrack. It was a pleasant surprise and I'm excited to see where it leads. Lesson of the night: keep your options open and fun will ensue.

The Truth About My Journey With The Body Ecology Diet

It's been a really long time since I've posted here. Some of it was because life's been very busy. A lot of it has been because I've been afraid. I'm afraid of disappointing you, my tried and true readers. I've received so many wonderful messages over the last 3 years since starting the Body Ecology Diet that I'm an inspiration and that my blog has helped you to stay on track and commit to your health. I was afraid that if I wrote that I've been struggling lately that you would be disappointed. I haven't abandoned my beliefs about the wonders of this lifestyle at all. In fact I believe in it 100%. After my wedding 2 1/2 months ago, I had a lot of emotional baggage come up. I'm so happy in my marriage and have the best husband in the world but I no longer have the distraction of wedding planning to keep me distracted from really dealing with my issues; issues that go beyond food. You see Body Ecology taught me that this whole adventure is a mind/b

Autumn Harvests

I am a self-proclaimed summer chic. I much prefer warm sunny days over the cold chilly winter days that accompany the upcoming holiday season. That being said, there is one thing I do love about this time of year and that's the autumn harvest! My favorite squashes are in full bloom and I can't get enough of them. They're warming, a little sweet, and in my opinion nature's own organic comfort food. I mean seriously nature was cool enough to give us a "pasta" plant ready for you to mix up with your favorite sauce! (If you haven't experienced spaghetti squash, I suggest you get your hands on one immediately. No boiling water required and you can even use the "skin" as a bowl!) So what are the different types? Here's a list of my favorites! Delicata squash. It almost looks like a multi-colored cucumber (except with a much firmer exterior). I have made both savory and sweet dishes with this deliciously versatile squash! If you haven&
I started this blog as an accountability tool when I began the Body Ecology Diet almost 4 years ago. There have been a lot of life changes this year from marriage to new jobs. When I started my journey it was because I wanted to be healthy and glowing for my wedding day. After the wedding, I can honestly say I felt  a bit lost on my health journey because my motivation was gone. I have a wealth of knowledge about healthy eating, meditation, self-care, and exercise at my fingertips but I became very unsure of my motivations. This morning I'm writing to tell how I've re-discovered my motivation. My husband recently read Louise Hay's book  You Can Heal Your Life  and has been sharing her mantras and guidance with me. I read the book myself a few years back but have found his discussions re-igniting the fire inside me. You see the only way we can make healthy lifestyle changes and truly find happiness is to love ourselves. Last night I went to dinner with some of the most ins
