Hope: I recycle as often as possible because I hope the planet can heal, and am saddened by the amount of waste we create.
Grace: I keep my products affordable for the public without devaluing what I create, because I was Graced with an ability to help heal.
Ancient Wisdom: I believe that following the older laws of nature is a better path than the current system of healing in this nation.
I am Hope, Grace & Ancient Wisdom; I am all that what was left in Pandora’s Box all those years ago.
The Real Heal line of tattoo & piercing aftercare
In this day and age, we are increasingly aware of how important it is to eat organic and as natural as possible. Unfortunately, we often fail to apply this rule to the outside of our body. We are simply not aware that our skin is the largest organ in our system. It absorbs toxins and/or nutrients, depending on the products we put on it.
The general rule of thumb that applies to food, should also apply to our skin care products. If it’s over 3 syllables or you can’t pronounce it, it’s not worthy of being on your body!
Many of our rashes and skin problems are quite often an allergy or sensitivity to skincare products we’re using. A majority of the products on the markets today contain chemicals and ingredients that are harmful to our environment and bodies – all in the name of saving the manufacturer a few dollars. For instance, mineral oil / petroleum are by-products of gasoline and are known carcinogens, yet we are advised by professionals to use products that contain these items, for relief of skin irritations on ourselves and even on our infants!
There’s no need to rely on chemicals, when nature provides all we need. Take a gander around the site, and feel free to contact me with questions on how you can heal naturally and organically!
Pandora’s Lunchbox is an organic, 100% plant-powered meal delivery service. I know exactly how confusing it is to muddle through all the news, social media posts, and information your friends and family give you about nutrition. I know how hard it is to eat whole-food, plant-based, clean meals that actually have flavor! I also know how hard it can be to get to the health food store or natural market, just to get your lunch or dinner!
I’ve been where you are…frustrated and hangry! (Hungry+Angry)
The Pandorable (weekly meal) menu is posted Friday, for the following Monday and Thursday deliveries (and is also emailed to the mailing list Friday morning). Orders must be received by Friday evening, to ensure prep and delivery; text or email your order, and I’ll do the rest! If you have food allergies, sensitivities or dislikes, please advise. I’ll accommodate any and all requests, as long as it’s stated when the order is being placed. Most substitutions are welcome at no extra charge! Meals are delivered in recyclable to-go containers that can be reused. Please reuse them properly, or return them to me so they can be sterilized and used again.
I’ve been making tasty creations for health food stores since 2006, when I began working for Sweet Caroline’s Organic Market (previously in Bay Shore, NY). I obtained my Master’s Degree in Holistic Wellness in 2011, teach workshops on various healing topics as well as cooking demos, and have been involved in creating and studying raw vegan and Ayurvedic plant-powered foods since 2009 (when I worked with ZenWay, another organic market in BayShore). I currently also work mornings at Golden Sparrow in Bayport as their plant-powered chef.
Food can be fun, too! My husband and I put together a night out for you, combining movies with organic, plant-powered nom noms…friends, family, significant others, or by yourself, this is a night out you don’t wanna miss!
