Is it Possible to Be a “Healthy Social Butterfly”? with Abigail Dougherty

Can you be a Healthy Social Butterfly interview @thesoulofhealth via @kraylfunch

The first few months of the year are hard for us social butterflies. We made it through the holiday entertaining season, have our 2014 goals {word of the year, core desired feelings, which ever phrase you prefer…} in place but the invites keep coming in. Dinner parties, networking events and family gatherings bring the opportunity to connect with friends and family but don’t always keep us on the straight path to healthy eating. So what is a girl to do?

Meet Abigail Dougherty,  a friend and advocate for healthy living all year long.

Abby and I sat down to discuss ways to eat better when hosting events as well as attend them and it doesn’t mean only eating one carrot stick while everyone else is eating the baked brie! So keep those invites flowing just make a few of the tweaks suggested in our chat. Cheers!

A Few Of My  Favorite Quotes From Abigail:

On Getting Healthy: “Focusing on getting more good stuff”;  “I don’t know how I did it before I started moving.”

On Healthy Entertaining:  “make veggies the star!”, “Make the focus about the people not just the food.”, “have a snack before you head out. This way you will not be making poor food choices based on hunger.”

We also get a little Woo Woo at the end talking about ways to be social and give back. Here’s a tweetable from the last 5 minutes.

“As you move through life live with one hand up and one hand down. Reach up to learn as well as down to pull someone along.”new_twitter_bird_flattened
