Are you ready to live your most joyfuL & AUTHENTIC life?
I believe honoring your heritage and combining it with well being, wisdom, self-love and soul care while giving back to your community contributes to a more fulfilling life. I also draw great inspiration from celebrating my Italian & Greek immigrant ancestors' culture whose courage to come to America, taught me about inner strength by creating a well lived life of love, food, family, faith, persistence, nature and longevity. Hope you can find ways to celebrate your life and history too.

Hi Everyone, Later this year, I will be offering an inspiring video course, called "Joyful Mediterranean Date Dinners" that focuses on the ritual and recipes for consistent wellbeing times at the table for yourself, and/or partner and loved ones. The recipes are Mediterranean - Italian and Greek inspired with gluten-free & dairy-free options. This video course is inspired by my own life starting with my Mediterranean Italian-Greek heritage, my travels of hosting culinary documentaries, my teaching wellbeing and cooking classes and simply experiencing healthy, soul satisfying times at the table. My husband (James) and I had weekly date dinners since 2006 and for myself back when I was single. Subscribe to my newsletter to learn when this course has been released and to receive wellbeing wisdom tips and recipes for a more joyful life.
Love and Blessings to you, Cynthia
