Tonight I was facilitating my ELEVATE 6-week Mindful Eating virtual support group and I held up a tiny porcelain “pinch” bowl I bought in Istanbul and use for snacks. While dining at a hip 5-star hotel who served fresh, local honey comb in them at breakfast, I realized that I needed these teeny bowls in my life.

Here’s my take. I’m going to expose a part of me that feels vulnerable but…
I don’t know if you caught me this morning but yup, I did a thing. I went live in my jammies on Instagram to talk about how to get your pantry stocked for the 2-week lockdown.
Look, I know it’s challenging to be stuck at home. BUT I’m the queen of putting a positive spin on situations and you can take this time as an opportunity for SELF CARE (get it – CARE-ona instead to corona…
