Wellness is about a lot more than just what you eat. Rather, it’s about cultivating abundance in your everyday life. What I love most about Sapana Chandra, MS, CHC, of Real + Vibrant is that she, in addition to inspiring us with her unbelievably gorgeous eats, shows how to cultivate a holistic view of wellness and balance. “Wellness” means something different for everyone; it’s up to us to write our definition. Sapana talks in this interview about how she did just that through the lens of her own personal journey with Real + Vibrant. I know you’re going to love learning about her work and story as much as I did!
Rachel Connors also known as Bakerita (@bakeritablog), a health and wellness blogger “looks at balance as indulging in the things you’re craving, but having the healthier ‘version’. Rachel has been blogging since she was sixteen, and personally knows that health is a journey. One that begins by increasing your knowledge about nutrition and figuring out what works well for your own self, whether that be gluten-free, vegan, or just generally including more whole food options into your diet.
A healthy lifestyle is not ONLY about the work and hustle, but it’s also taking care of yourself and giving your body all it wants and craves to living an abundant and nourished life. Melissa (@melissas_healthykitchen) shares the most delicious and simple healthy dishes all across her page and on her blog. She believes that a working professional can still create nutrient-dense meals even when your week is super busy. I’m so excited to share what Melissa has to say about committing to a healthy lifestyle, balance, and some of her favorite wellness rituals. Enjoy!

I’m so excited to share what Angie has to say about healthy living, skincare, balance and food freedom!
Matcha energizes me in a natural way that lasts for hours without any jitters. Switching to it also helped me heal my acne by leaving my skin more hydrated and boosting my antioxidants. This whole leaf tea has been a huge force on the wellness scene, but making it correctly can seem a bit daunting. I wanted to share with you my no-fail method for making both plain hot matcha teas and matcha lattes.
I believe there is not a one-size-fits-all when it comes to our diet and how we eat. I’ve realized I’m over food dogma and more strongly believe that if YOU know what works best for your overall health, happiness and wellbeing then who’s to say otherwise? I’ve decided to begin incorporating meat-based proteins and eggs back into my diet and it’s been one of the best decisions I’ve made!
