Where Hot Chicks Hang Out

I’ve been to a ton of events for business owners over the past year: conferences, trainings, networking events, etc. The people I’ve met at all of these have been great, but something stood out about the attendees of the last two that I went to: they were all hot.

They were full of energy. Glowing skin and bright eyes. Fit and well dressed. They had some sort of irresistible nature about them, kind of an “I’ll have what she’s having” thing going on.

The events? Marie Forleo’s Rich Happy and Hot Live conference in November and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition’s live conference in Miami Beach this past weekend. The majority of the attendees were women, but there was a nice handful of smart, energetic and enthusiastic (of course they were, they were surrounded by hot women!) gentlemen in attendance as well.

I’m not just talking about appearance here – these broads were really up to something. Enthusiastic with a go-getter attitude. Full of creativity. I’ve had the pleasure of keeping in touch with many of them and seeing what they are doing in the world. They’re on fire: passionately working on projects through all hours of the night, building empires while they care for their families, continuously investing in their personal and professional growth. What do they all have in common? They friggin’ love their veggies.

No joke. I thought it was only the select nutrition nutbars who worshipped fresh vegetable juice and other living foods. I was wrong: these people know, from marketing coaches and photographers to consultants and travel agents that good food fuels their creative spark.

You could see the difference just from what the attendees were toting. Instead of helping themselves to bagels, low-fat muffins and danish, they were noshing on fresh fruit, trail mix and lara bars. Instead of being served coffee, sugar and chemical sweeteners, they had herbal tea and coconut water. No wonder nobody was dozing off after 7 hours of speakers.

It’s really no surprise – we’ve all heard the saying “you are what you eat” – and that is 100% true. What you eat gets broken down at a cellular level and builds your internal organs, your skin, your hair, your eyes, your muscles, everything. You are literally walking around as the food you ate.

If you want to have foggy thinking and feel lackluster and sluggish, eat processed, packaged, and chemicalized crapola. Want to join forces with those sexy entrepreneurs who are really going for it? Eat more foods that actually have a life force.  Meaning, they would actually rot if you left them out on the counter.  Ever notice that the Honey Nut Cheerios that get stuck under the car seat for months look exactly the same as when they came out of the box?

So what do you want to build your body out of? What do you want to fuel your energy and creativity with? Leave a comment and let me know if you notice what foods make you feel amazing and what makes you feel like only a shadow of yourself.

    Heather, I LOVE THIS POST. LOVE IT. It is so darn true. I could not believe how many health oriented women there were at RHH Live. It blew my mind in the most awesome way. Someone told me recently that they worked for men ranked in the top 10 on Forbes wealthiest list and that those men also never messed around with having a proper healthy diet and lots of exercise. Eat your veggies, say goodbye to foggy brain, and let your creative green juices flow!!

  • Yvonne Bynoe says:

    Heather–Great post! I totally agree that the women of RHH Live were all of that. As a result of seeing Kris Carr, I’m eating more raw foods and drinking green juices. I must say that I’ve loving my glowing skin and the extra energy!

  • Great words Heather! I’m suddenly craving some coconut water! Your line about what we all have in common, “they friggin’ love their veggies” gave me a good giggle. Great job!

  • Natalie says:

    Awww Heather, it WAS so nice hanging out with like-minded people. (And then I came home to my day-job, ho-hum!) I was super-energized by the green juices I had in Miami and I’m looking to buy a high-end juicer in the very near future.

  • Genna says:

    Ah yes, AMEN sister! I’m sure Liz will back me on this but being a vegan, you get so many weird comments and quizzical looks from people when discussing or mentioning the plant based diet, that it was a complete breath of fresh air to be surrounded by women that just got it.

    And that were living, breathing HOT examples of a greener, healthier lifestyle.

    We rock!!

    • Liz Longacre says:

      Yup, I 10,000% back you up on that Genna!!

    • heather says:

      I hear you on the weird comments and quizzical looks – can be very frustrating when you’re dining out with friends. I was a vegan for a year and a half, and though it didn’t completely work for me it’s taught me to use meat as just a “flavoring” and plant foods as the main event and it feels incredible.

  • Sally Hope says:

    Hey Heather…this post rocks! I was absolutely blown away by the amount of amazing women in one room. To me, that alone was the price of admission. I came home happy, inspired, buzzing. I felt like I finally found a community of “ME’s” and I couldn’t believe it!!! Thanks for posting. Super cool.


  • Djanira says:

    It is so true!

    I was thrilled to meet other health conscious ladies. I thought I was pretty healthy until I met some of the RHH hotties including Kris Carr who raised the bar waaay high.
    I’m happy to say that it was easy to incorporate a ton of her suggestions and I’m feeling even better than before.

  • Pat says:

    I actually did not know that there were so many women like me out there :). RHH felt like home, I am so happy to have found my place and before that I had no idea that juicing could be so delish and now I am hooked!

  • Oooh yeah! I love the “I’ll have what she’s having” thing you described, since it definitely felt that way.

    I was head over heels in love that we got coconut water, tea, fruits, nuts, etc. These women really do know what’s going on, and you’re super smart to show the distinction here. 🙂

    Here’s to green juice (yay Kris Carr!). 🙂

  • Awesome post Heather! I have been drinking lemon water in the morning and having a green smoothie almost every day since RHH Live and I’m LOVING how it makes me feel. I crave more fruits and veggies during the day and feel so much more energized and hydrated! I’m on the hunt for a juicer now and will be doing Kris Carr’s 21 day cleanse starting Monday! 🙂

  • Hi Heather– Great post and great info! I recently bought a juicer and it rocks! I use it often and it really has made a difference in getting more fruits and veggies into my body and it’s not boring. I feel much more alert and alive in the morning after I’ve had a juice. My favorites are carrot and ginger and celery and apple.

  • Ivana says:

    Loved your post too Heather! And all your helpful tips… Switching spirulina for magnesium (I have not felt cold this winter), oh and having cooked brown rice or other grains in the fridge and mix them with veggies. I am applying the same rule you suggest. use chgicken for flavor, just a bit goes a long way. I feel so much better than few months ago. Graciassss!!

    • heather says:

      Ivana I’m SO glad that you’re still applying what you’ve learned and that you’re feeling better and not feeling cold this winter – that’s freaking awesome!

  • SOOOO true Heather – I was so awake during RHH Live – all that coconut water was fantastic. Usually at conferences I get so run down, I just want to eat chips to fuel me.

    Love your site so much
