My purpose is to be in joy. My name isn't Lydia JOY for no reason. 

We were born to live, not to heal. Not to PERFORM or be busy. Rest is actually the most productive.

Even though I’m an intuitive cook who knows my way around the kitchen well, I still need a little help getting inspired and planning.

So, if you are on a mission to eat the healthiest foods possible so you can make sure you feel your best and have energy every day… BUT you can’t seem to figure out what on earth to make for dinner every night because you forgot to plan. Sound familiar?
