Say Hello Wellness!

Say Hello Wellness was started as a way to encourage IRL connections between like-minded health enthusiasts, wellness professionals, brands, and bloggers. Its so nice to actually connect in person with the people you interact with on Instagram by coming together each month for  health + wellness related activities. This month my friend Remi (food + fitness blogger) and I joined Say Hello Wellness and The Toasted Pinenut's baking class on how to make Gluten Free Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies and No-Bake Cookie Dough Bars. Yum!


Here's The Toasted Pinenut's recipe for her perfectly chewy chocolate chip cookies and also some helpful tips.

  • Don’t use melted butter or ghee. Make sure it is room temperature.

  • Use an electric mixer to really cream together the cookie dough.

  • Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes!

Working in digital and living in an increasingly social media driven world, I can't help but feel a human connection that is missing. It's nice to go to an event where you can create bonds around shared interests in the health & wellness space. Each HelloWellness event is lead by an influencer with a curated theme. You'll get to go home with a goodie bag full of products you can try from leaders in the space. I'm so excited to try my Banza chickpeas pasta! The best part is that HelloWellness hosts events nationwide. Check out their site and let me know if you end up going to an event! xx
