Summer Wellness

hello everyone,

Sorry for the delay in writing but so many wonderful things have been going on that my writing has received less attention. i love the summer season; eating meals outside, spending as much time as possible in nature (when its not too hot), family beach vacations and weekend trips. One of my favorite activities of the summer is going to the market in the morning and buying fresh seasonal ingredients to make delicious and nutritious meals for the day. i've been loving making wraps lately with various fresh ingredients and dipping them in various interesting raw sauces.

no matter what style of eating you choose the key to eating well is getting your food from the best sources and making sure your food is of the healthiest and highest quality. try to get most of your food from local organic sources.

i have to tell you about a new food find at my organic market. they have these little raw gogi cacao energy bites that are just fabulous. i love them as a snack during my work days when i'm going from client to client. Some of the ingredients include: dates, cacao, gogi berries, raisens, sunflower seeds, coconut and so many more nutrient-dense foods.

I continue to focus on my own wellness by eating well, exercising daily and sleeping more (i'm currently 3 months pregnant). I just feel that at this time sleep is even more important. i've been sleeping 8-10 hours per night. it feels wonderful. my body and mind need time to rest and rejuvenate. i've been doing my own yoga practice at home because i can not tolerate the heat in my normal yoga class. My main cardio at this time is walking- walking in nature is the best. Mason keeps me very active too. Running and playing with him all day allows me to sleep really well at night.

If you have not already checked out the new Lulu store in bethesda you have got to check it out. It opened in June and is just amazing. They chose me to be an ambassador for the bethesda store which means i am a member of the local community that represents what they are about. When you go in the store you will see pictures of the local ambassadors on the walls. Just look up and you can't miss me. Over the next year i will be doing various events with them at their store and around the community. One event we will probably do in October is a raw vegan food demo. i'll keep you updated on the details. They also have a variety of free classes that they offer regularly at the store including free yoga classes. check it out!!

In September i will be attending the Living Light Culinary School in California. I'm very excited about this. I can't wait to learn more healthy culinary techniques and share them with all of my clients, patients, friends and family. I also look forward to exploring northern california.

that's it for now. Enjoy the rest of the summer!!!

Be Well, Kelly
