It is a pleasure to introduce to you all Food Relationship Coach Ms. Shelley Chapman of Naturi Beauty Concepts LLC. I am follower of her blog and youtube channel where she encourages viewers and readers to develop healthy relationships with food. I'll let her explain more to you in her own words...
Shelley Chapman: Naturi Beauty Concepts is a brand and lifestyle that promotes radiance through food and beauty. I was inspired to start the company because I wanted to help women with their natural hair including myself. The company has grown and my position has evolved from simply the woman who creates and sells the products to The Food Relationship Coach where I help individuals, namely women, redefine and recreate their relationship with food and beauty.
Shelley Chapman: I started an event series called “Decadence!” to explore that very concept. “Decadence!” takes ordinary ingredients and shows the varying uses that can make them extraordinary. At each “Decadence!” event participants get to taste different dishes prepared with a specific ingredient and then later become a “Kitchen Chemist” and create a beauty product with the same ingredient. At the premiere “Decadence!” event in Atlanta we explored Chocolate. Chocolate is the ultimate alchemical food. It inspires our sensual nature and it literally links with our "bliss gene" in our bodies and puts us in a good feeling place. That's why so many women crave it during their menstrual cycle. At the D.C. “Decadence!” event we explored Honey, Rosemary and Ginger. The ginger was uplifting and exhilarating while the honey felt relaxing and soothing. It really is about people connecting with food and understanding how they can use the varying properties to benefit their lives as necessary. There are two more upcoming “Decadence!” events on the calendar: December 4 in Atlanta and January 15 in New York. We'll be exploring coconut and turmeric at the Atlanta event and details are forthcoming for the New York event.
