Captures of Sweet & Savory Chocolate Brunch

We had such a wonderful time at our Chocolate Brunch Club in June. Thank you to everyone that helped and got chocolate wasted with us. 

I was a bit afraid that chocolate everything would be overwhelming, but it was such a hit!

Excited for the next Brunch Club coming up in August. Stay tuned.

A Purified Life is Growing!


I’m happy to announce that my sister, Regina, has officially joined the team at A Purified Life! She’ll be assisting with marketing, event production, and collaborations. We’ll be combining ideas and energy to produce more community brunches, group dinner parties, cooking classes, and superfood chocolate.

Please feel free to reach out to Regina with any collaboration ideas, if you’d like to volunteer at one of our events, or simply to drop a happy note – she loves those. []

We’re so excited to begin this journey together. We’ll be kicking off this new chapter with Brunch Club in January. Stay tuned for more details.

Cheers to endless kitchen dance parties and new beginnings!


Captures of Our First Community Brunch Club


I'm so excited to say that our first brunch club was a success!  The room was filled with like-minded and inspiring individuals. If I've learned anything in the past 4 years that I've been a nutrition & health educator (and going through my personal health journey), it's that health is so much more than 'what to eat and what not to eat.' It's truly about community and surrounding ourselves with people that are also on the path to optimal health and well-being.

I loved sharing this experience with everyone and opening up the opportunity for people to connect and support one another. The location was amazing as well - 18Reasons, it made the event that much better.

Thank you to everyone that attended, supported, and participated in making this day happen. Below are the beautiful captures of the September brunch club, taken by my lovely friend Erica Bean.

I cannot wait for the next one this month! Stay tuned for the date.
