I fully believe that the holiday season can be a time for health and wellness as well as indulgence. There is no reason that come January 1st you should feel like a bloated, exhausted version of yourself!
Yesterday I kicked of my healthy holiday season by participating in the Brick Church Holiday Fair’s First ( and hopefully annual) Wellness Day. Along with some of my favorite health and wellness brands and experts we showed the holiday shoppers how to indulge and enjoy the holidays while keeping their health in mind.
Just in time for holidays gifting I debuted my Clean, Pure and Simple Pumpkin Spice Granola and Coffee Cake. The granola is vegan, gluten free, grain free and nut free. The Coffee Cake is vegan, gluten free and grain free. Both are made in small batches with lots of love and organic ingredients.
Shoppers were able to try mini versions of the coffee cake as well as samples of the granola served with OMilk’s Pumpkin Pie Spice Cashew Milk! One particularly small shopper was a big fan of the coffee cake. I think he ate five samples before his mom agreed to order a few dozen for the holidays! You know you are onto something good when even kids like your food!I started the day well stocked with bags of granola but was wiped clean by 5pm! I am so thrilled that people are loving my healthy granola as much as I do!
Green Beauty Goddess Rebecca Casciano was also on hand to offer mini beauty consultations and makeup applications.Always grateful for a fresh face of makeup I made sure to visit Rebecca’s table during a lull in granola sales.
Latham Thomas, author of Mama Glow was there to sign copies of her amazing new book. If you know anyone who is expecting I highly suggest you pick them up a copy of Mama Glow! I was sure to pick up a few for some of my girlfriends with babies onboard!In between book signings Latham also stopped by Rebecca’s table to get touched up. Not that she needs it, she is truly the definition of glowing beauty!
Author, safe cosmetics expert and makeup artist Britta Aragon was also there with her natural skincare line CV Skinlabs. CV Skinlabs is an amazing line created to repair and restore the health of the skin. Originally formulated for the compromised skin of chemotherapy patients, the entire line is highly moisturizing, healing and nurturing.
Britta (on left) is a true inspiration. She is beyond passionate about what she does and it shows in the amazing quality of her products. I personally cannot wait to try my Rescue + Relief Spray and Restorative Skin Balm. I know the balm will be especially useful for all those kitchen related burns I get on my hands!The final Wellness Day vendor was Emily Trower-Young of Sustainable Shanti. Sustainable Shanti’s line of natural balms treat everything form razor burn to diaper rash to sun burn. They all come adorably packed in tins and would make amazing holiday gifts! Emily is a true kindred spirit, we spent lost of time discussing the joys of bulk ingredient shipments such as 30 pound of seeds or 20 punds of coconut oil arriving at your door!If you are in the NYC area and would like to try my Clean, Pure and Simple Pumpkin Spice Granola or Coffee Cake for yourself send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you an order form!
