For me, 2016 is going to be a year all about renew. The definition of renew is: to make (something) new, fresh, or strong again. To begin (something) again especially with more force or enthusiasm.
So this is me. I’m starting over again. Only a few people close to me know that the last 5 years have been pretty brutal. Not all brutal! There have been amazing times, huge leaps in my career, fun adventures around the world, and have cultivated some wonderful friendships. The brutal parts came in the form of a long divorce and a bad car accident. They were the two biggest challenges I’ve ever been through. I know I have come out a stronger person, but I would never wish either experience on anyone.
In 2016, I’m getting back to what brings me joy. I am happiest in the kitchen creating new recipes. I’m happiest on television, educating people on the benefits of treating your body to delicious healthy foods. I’m happiest throwing parties for wonderful people. I’m happiest connecting with people who are out there reading this and have been so supportive to me on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter!
We put together a little party at Cold and Thirsty for some favs in the social media world. It was so fun to bring everyone together! There was cryo-freezing, yummy cocktails, of course lots of vegan food, and fabulous networking!
Clover Cloth had their adorable line at the party and everyone got to go home with a piece! They plant a tree for every item sold!
My girl Taryn Southern picked out the perfect tee for her!
Of course I did a ton of vegan food! Recipes coming soon

John Salley jumped in the cryo machine to check it out for himself. He was a 7 foot popsicle when he came out, but thought it was really cool and could see the benefits.
Catching up with the lovely Tara Buck, actress and wine maker.
Such a fun party! I hope you have a wonderful 2016 and all your wishes come true!
