Amy contacted me recently looking for a new head-shot for her website. She wanted something that would be professional but not stuffy. Something that showcased her easygoing, approachable attitude. Amy came over and we got started, as we wondered around in the late afternoon sun, looking for nice locations to shoot I found out a bit more about Amy and what she does.
Amy is a Health Coach, she is currently attending the Institute for Integrative Nutrition at Bauman College. The more we chatted the more I realized how much we had in common. We shared our cooking adventures (most recently we have both wondered into the world of offal) and compared notes on running a small business.
After spending a bit of time with Amy it was clear to me that she is going to be very successful in her new business. She is down to earth and sweet. She has a very clear passion for food and for people, so her career path definitely makes sense. I look forward to sharing recipes in the future and watching her business grow as she helps women to live healthier more balanced lives.
Six Years Ago: More From Below
'Eat Real's mission is to make real food as accessible and as affordable as fast food at events held in strategic communities across the United States. Eat Real's success will be measured by increased public awareness of and respect for the craft of making good food and by the growth of green collar jobs in America's growing regional food economies. Eat Real's vision is of an America where food's crucial importance to the health of our bodies, communities and economy is universally recognized, and where access to healthy and affordable real foods is a right, not a privilege. Also, in our ideal America, food tastes a whole lot better.'
I can dig that.
One of the booths that I stopped at was the SFBA booth, you can find their website: HERE. Charlie recently mentioned an interest in beekeeping and I thought I should learn more. Membership to the association is $15 for an individual, $20 for a household. Many of the classes through SFBA are free, but there are several other perks to having a membership.
I am still a bit jumpy from my recent wasp sting, so this may have to be a one man show in our household. But I have no problem reaping the benefits of having all the honey I can handle.
Tonight... heading to the Sonoma Premiere of The Wine Guy at Jacuzzi Family Vineyard. If you have nothing else to do, or even if you do, you should come out. Reception starts at 6:15pm.
While perusing the internet on the lookout for unique resources for my brides (and grooms) I stumbled upon Rethink Ink Design. Yes, it may be true that my green side is peaking through, but they also have stunning design.
From Judy: 'Rethink
are all original hand drawn illustrations, purposefully designed so
there will be minimal ink coverage, which also reduces waste produced in
the recycling process. I create as little waste as possible in day to
day operations as well. All paper scraps are recycled, reused or
shredded for my chicken's bedding! Everything else is composted or
reused whenever possible.
From the website: 'All of the designs are printed on 100% post-consumer waste (PCW) recycled papers and envelopes, no new trees are used in the process. These papers are Forest Steward Council (FSC) certified. FSC tracks paper from forest to final product to ensure it comes from legal and well managed forests. The papers used are also made with renewable green e-certified energy and manufactured chlorine free.'
