What seems like yesterday was actually May 2006 when I decided to invest in learning about healthy eating and cooking with Christina Pirello at her food intensive at Drexel University's cooking school. This was an adventure into the unknown and an exciting three days of learning about food, health, and how to trust your instincts to know what your body needs. Cooking is often not about recipes but about ingredients. That weekend I met Lois Brown and our friendship has grown over the years - first Saturday sessions with Christina, lots of time spent at Whole Foods in Marlton and Princeton, eating healthy food, talking about nutrition and exploring new products on their shelves. We have evolved. Lois has become a nutrition coach with the Institute for Integratve Nutrition and I have read explored and grown along with her! We each know so much and bring our interesting personas as well as an interest in learning to every visit we experience. Today, we went one step further in our dance - we are making a plan - thinking about ways we can leave our legacy and how we can guide/empower individuals.
To celebrate our relationship's expansion to new levels, after working/brainstorming and laughing for many hours, we needed to celebrate. Big Fish Grille was just down the way at the mall in Princeton and off we went - fresh tuna -and Asian noodle salad! Yum. This guy watched over us as we ate.
At one point, we stopped talking and just sat there looking at our table top. PhotoSchmoozer always has her camera at the ready and today was no different. These are the reflections of the ceiling lights that showed themselves off so brilliantly!
Today was a new day...a new month...and a new beginning! We invite you to stay tuned for the ongoing adventures of Martie and Lois! DARE to AFFIRM - yourself and others. We always choose to 'catch them doing something right!!'
