I believe that it’s possible to drink green juice AND drink cocktails, that it’s do-able to eat quinoa AND online date and that it’s really OK to not eat dairy AND still go to an all-inclusive resort in Mexico.
In fact, they can’t be.
For most of my life, I struggled with undiagnosable digestive distress (OK – they called it “IBS,” which really means “I DUNNO”), food addictions, weight issues, chronic lack of energy, emotional problems and a hell of a lot of anxiety. I sought out every healer and tried every pill, test, herb, powder and positive affirmation I could find.
Nothing would help, and I thought I was fated for a life of bellyaches, bingeing, bloating, depression and anxiety attacks.
That is, until fate led me to experience my first plant-based meal.
The rest, as they say, is history…
OK, not really, but you’d think that the rest was just smooth sailing, right? Considering that this fully plant-based meal made me feel fully FANTASTIC for the first time in 8+ years?!
You’d think that I just happily dove head first into “clean eating,” slurping smoothies, massaging kale and gobbling goji’s like woah.
You’d think that I started Party in My Plants simply because eating plants took away all of my health and emotional problems.
But guess what – eating plants also took away my social life. And it sucked. What good is cashew ice cream if you have no one to share it with?! I’d become healthier than ever, but unhappier than ever, too.
And that wasn’t gonna fly.
I had to figure out how to be happy AND healthy. (Because choosing one or the other? That’s some BS right there.)
Well, spoiler: I nailed it.
And THAT’S why I started Party in My Plants – to help YOU never again have to choose between feeling good and feeling happy. And to also help you do the healthy things that make you feel, look and live your best WITHOUT it totally sucking.
(Because if healthy stuff sucks, you won’t do it. And if you force yourself to do it anyway, your body won’t like it because stress is the ultimate health-destroyer.)
Flash forward to today, after I’ve spent years studying health and happiness. In the health department, I became a professional plant-based chef and a certified health coach.
In the happiness department I became a comedian, performing stand-up all throughout NYC and working for David Letterman, Adam Sandler and Collegehumor.
I’ve combined my two passions and talents (making someone LOL + making someone like kale) to help others like you do exactly what I did – transform their lives from pretty crappy to holy-moly happy!
If you’re interested in learning about things you can do that’ll boost your healthiness without compromising your happiness, the Internet gods, majestic algorithms or a colleague of yours have sent you to the right place.
Craving a mega-dose of inspiring, entertaining and actionable healthy advice while you’re driving, showering or dish-washing? The Party in My Plants Podcast is calling your name.
Literally craving plants and healthy, easy, tasty dishes made with plants? One of my recipes will surely do the trick.
Really jonesing for some personal attention from someone who’s been in your shoes (or your stretchy pants because jeans don’t fit) and knows how to help you transform into the chillest clean eater you know? Setting up private coaching with me is a must.
Instagram and Facebook are where I’m at and I’d be ecstatic to connect with you on either of those! I’d love to share what I eat and do with you, and see what you eat and do! I mean, what better time to be alive than now – when we can share such high-quality photos of our food?!
Because why the heck not? I’m here for YOU. That’s really the whole point of all this. I want to help YOU become healthier…without totally hating your life. So let me know how I can do that. What do you need help with? The pronunciation of quinoa? Buying a blender? Figuring out where to eat for your anniversary dinner that’s not a “health-food” restaurant but also won’t give you gas all night long? I’ve got your back. Just email me already!
Finally, breathe. Smile. It’s all going to be OK. It’s just grapefruit. It’s just a chia seed. It’s just bok choy. Relax, smile, eat plants and do the best you can. And join my free #eatmoreplants course of course:
