SOPHIE ULIANO -  Healthy Living Expert

(I call her the Green Goddess!)

  New York Times  best-selling author  Sophie Uliano  is a leading expert in the field of natural health and beauty, who takes a down-to-earth approach to beauty focusing on what’s truly healthy. Her journey started nearly a decade ago – Sophie was raising her toddler daughter in urban sprawl of Los Angeles, a transplant from the idyllic English countryside. And something just didn’t feel right. She saw smog everywhere she went, her skin was showing premature signs of aging, she worried about her daughter playing in the park because of the chemicals used to treat the grass …  The evidence for change was all around her.  So she sat down and began to read. And read. And read. And what she found terrified and inspired her. So, she wrote her first book,   Gorgeously Green  , which was featured by Julia Roberts on  The Oprah Winfrey Show . This appearance was a wake-up call for America, and even in the hours after it aired, she knew she wasn’t alone in her concerns.  Thus was born  Gorgeously Green  and the thriving online community.  SophieUliano.com  has become a trusted resource and voice in the field of holistic wellness, bringing together a community of like-minded women and providing in-depth articles, reviews, beauty picks, recipes, and more covering the latest beauty trends. She has written three subsequent books,   Do It Gorgeously ,    The Gorgeously Green Diet   and most recently   Gorgeous For Good.    Sophie was also a family member on Hallmark’s  Home & Family,  appearing regularly as the show’s healthy living expert over a 4 year span.  Sophie recently hosted her first wellness retreat in January 2017 in Miami.  You can join Sophie for her upcoming   Gorgeous For Good Weekend Wellness Intensive .  This mini wellness retreat runs June 9-10 at The LINE Hotel in Los Angeles.  For the event link to the Good Weekend Wellness Intensive  click here .

KIDDOCJJ:  What did you last EAT that was memorable - where and why?

SOPHIE:  The last thing I ate that was memorable was a dish at Crossroads Kitchen in West Hollywood. It was grilled maitake mushrooms and artichoke hearts on a bed of pureed celeriac root. It was the most delicious thing I think I've ever tasted. The mushroom was smoky and "meaty" - so succulent, and juxtaposed beautifully against the creamy puree.

KIDDOCJJ:  What have you LEARNed that stays with you daily?

SOPHIE:   I have learned that what I eat for three meals a day (+ snacks and beverages), can significantly affect my health outcome. By eating a predominantly whole food plant-based diet, I can go a long way to stacking the cards in my favor in terms of disease prevention. That's so exciting to me. I have spent the last 5 years studying nutrition, so all of my daily choices are guided by the evidence-based science, which I follow.

KIDDOCJJ:  Where/What  would you like to EXPLORE - where, what and why?

SOPHIE:  I would like to learn how to further my culinary skills in cooking plant-based. There are so many great chefs who specialize in this (such as Tal Ronan from Crossroads) and others across the globe). As we head into a more sustainable future, I think we are going to be seeing a whole new era of plant-based gourmet cuisine. Hmmmm - maybe I'd also like to take a vegan cheese cooking class.

KIDDOCJJ:  Who or what INSPIREs you? 

SOPHIE:  

Older women who have managed to maintain their energy, light, vigor, and joy inspire me. Most of my mentors are women who are over the age of 70. Tao Porchon Lynch is a 98 year-old yoga teacher. She inspires me because she gets out of bed every morning full of positivity and light. People who give something back inspire me - giving back to our community. I try to do this as much as I can because I've been freely given so many gifts. We're on the planet for a very short time, so I like to inspire clients and readers to do the inner work, which reminds each and every one of us of our life purpose.

KIDDOCJJ:  Any last words, Sophie?

SOPHIE:  I'd love to invite anyone near Los Angeles to join me at my Gorgeous for Good Weekend Intensive retreat that runs June 9-10 at the Line Hotel in Los Angeles.  If you bring your BFF, there's a great deal on line and you will all enjoy, learn from, and take away tons of knowledge from the experts I have assembled as part of this event.  Cheers! and see you there or on www.SophieUliano.com.
