Thankfully long gone is the fat-fearing diet days of the past with low-fat and fat-free products! Fats are essential for long-term energy, cell growth and communication, organ protection, insulation for your body, nutrient absorption, and hormone production.

Hey y’all! My name is Harley Cobb and I’m a rising junior at the University of Georgia, majoring in Dietetics. I was born and raised in Charlotte, NC (the Queen City!) where I also became a 200-Hour RYS certified yoga instructor last summer.

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.

I was just talking with a college friend this weekend, checking in with each other. We discussed our current C19 aka CARE-ona eating habits, disrupted routines, and how we were processing the global uncertainty and lack of structure.
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…
