Wellness muse: Chelsea Neff

Meet Chelsea Neff, the florist-turned wellness guru behind Pine Studios in New York. She answers 6 questions on New Year's resolutions, motherhood and her new zine, "Salad".

--

1) How did your work in floral design evolve into a passion for food and holistic nutrition?

Moving from New York to the South was the catalyst for my transition from floral design to food and holistic nutrition. Once I moved down south I found there weren’t many healthy options. But the move gave me the opportunity to build a garden and slow down to learn more about food and nutrition. It has since become my main priority :) 

2) What health & wellness intentions have you set for 2022?

For 2022 my goals are to:

  1. Start every morning with a reading and devotional from the bible to set my mind right. 
  2. Make more meals at home with produce I've grown from my garden. 
  3. Be intentional about daily vitamin intake :) 
  4. Move my body daily, work out intentionally 4 days a week. 

And most of all, be consistent!

3) How has becoming a mom changed how you think about food?

Becoming a mother has driven me to be consistent with health and wellness. It has motivated me to feed myself and my family a well nourished diet every day. 

 

4) What do you like about your Inka products?

Because I grow a lot of produce at home, I enjoy being able to rinse and store my veggies once picked from the garden :) Inka Food Containers help me organize my fridge, which gives me clarity throughout busy weeks.

5) What was the inspiration behind your salad zine?

SALAD is just a fun little guy to help others get inspired in the kitchen– made out of my passion for creating things and sharing them with the world. I also think cookbooks and recipes can be intimidating, so I focused on making a Zine that was colorful and fun. Making meals should always be enjoyable!

 

6) What is a favorite food you remember eating as a child? 

Not much tops a New Jersey bagel.
