8909592_300x300This week’s pod has been months in the making so I’m psyched to welcome one of my Instagram friends, favorite youtube personalities, and all around smart cookie Melissa Ramos to wonderland. As Nutritionist, Acupuncturist and owner of Sexy Food Therapy Inc., her high-heeled approach to health helps people feel sexy from the inside out. She has an amazing TED talk that I love and has been named one of Canada’s up-and-coming health and wellness stars She focuses on digestive imbalances, mental health and hormone-related which we’ll get a little taste of  all of her work this week. Her popular “Quickie” of the week videos ARE MY FAVORITE thing ever  and give me weekly fix by offering food, supplement and lifestyle tips in an unconventional, HILARIOUS FUN AND engaging way. I love how she breaks really important concepts down to be digestible and pleasurable just like the recipes she creates. I’m so excited to be talking with her and getting to know her better today with you guys listening. Screen Shot 2014-01-01 at 3.37.44 PM

070 | Jason Wrobel Beyond Healthy Eating to Healthy Living

I’m psyched to welcome one of my friends and fellow Michigan native Jason Wrobel to Wonderland this week. He’s now an LA transplant, Cooking Channel TV host, and celebrity chef, who has changed the landscape of organic and, sustainable cuisine.You guys are going to love J-Wro in this episode if you don’t know him already and if you do then great, you’re already as excited as I am for this convo because he’s such a funny and smart guy. He is a world-renowned leader in organic cuisine focusing on radical simplicity and artful presentation, which I love.  He imbues his ecstatic raw food creations with the energy of fresh, local, organic produce and the healing properties of raw superfoods, which have rendered his dishes hands-down favorites among celebrity clients, and regular folk alike. J-Wro has cooked for everyone from Woody Harrelson, Jeremy Piven, Robin Wright, Sigourney Weaver and more and they all rave about his healthy, innovative and delicious plant-based creations. His Youtube videos are my fav because he’s so funny & entertaining while being informative and keeping things super simple. I got to have a meal with him at one of our favorite places here in Detroit when he was home for the holidays and in today’s episode we  continue the convo today with you guys eavesdropping.

How to Start A Blog, Find A Niche, & Your Voice

I’m starting to get asked a ton about how to how to start a blog so I thought I’d just make a quick video about it. This video includes my top tips for starting a blog or making your blog even better or more fun which is the real goal of blogging…I think.

Watch the video to find out the tips that I’ve learned through my humble experience blogging. I’m sure there are many more things I’m missing that could be helpful and have worked for other people, but again I’m simply sharing my own experience of what has worked for me.

If you know someone who has a blog or wants to and you think this video would be helpful to them send it their way. Or tweet the below quote I quoted in this video. >>

“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.” #Kurt Vonnegut
