The First Event!
It's really amazing what you’re capable of with just a little support, and some determination. About three months ago, what started as a conversation amongst friends turned into this idea of creating a space to have conversations about food. Everything happened so fast that before I knew it, I created an Instagram, an email and it just felt like everything I was interested in came together in this space.
Let's Talk about Food was an event to share, connect, and discuss the power of food. My goal for this event was to create engaging conversations amongst everyone and I think it did just that! We got to hear from three guest speakers (@fortifynaturalwellness, @johhhanna and @eatsbytee). They shared their health + wellness journeys, and connected with the guests and gave some of their own health and wellness tips! We also spoke of the importance of integrative medicine, and not to always think western medicine is the enemy. Western medicine and holistic/alternative medicine have the ability to work well together!
Some things I took home with me from the event is that we're not alone. Whatever we may be going through, someone may have a similar experience that we can connect to.
Some other good topics that came up were:
-Running a business in the health & wellness community
-Diet Culture & Instagram
So what's next?
Well, I'd love to have another event if you guys are asking for it, and I'd love some feedback too!
