Prepare your favorite adaptogen-infused drink, get your diffuser loaded up with your favorite essential oils, and cozy up to me and some of my favorite people. We’ve got a lot to learn (self-actualization, people!) and I’m so excited to be on this informative journey with you!

Maker, Food and Wellness Writer, & Creative Business Coach Maggie Battista

I’m very grateful that Maggie Battista was able to find time to chat with me one Friday afternoon earlier this month, literally days before her 2nd cookbook launch. As you’ll hear in the episode, I fangirled a bit - she is truly an inspirational woman to me. Maggie has a lovely way of balancing being assertive, grounded, relatable, and kind - she’s truly a warm soul and offers so much to those with whom she works. I met Maggie about four years ago after recipe testing for her first cookbook, Food Gift Love (I still swear by her banana bread recipe!), and we’ve kept in touch sporadically via email over the years. I especially love following her posts on Instagram as she keeps things real and shares intentionally, in an authentic way. Plus, the food pics - YUM!

Maggie is a wellness and food writer, cookbook author, creative business coach, shopgirl, and professional women’s empowerist (that should be a word!) based in Massachusetts. She’s authored two fabulous cookbooks, one for which I had the honor to recipe test, and another which was just released on February 5th, A New Way To Food. She’s a Jill of all trades balancing writing, hosting gatherings, empowering women in the creative field, and building brick-and-mortars (stay tuned for her permanent Eat Boutique store that will be in Boston!)

In this episode we hear:

  • about Maggie’s brand new “self-help cookbook hybrid,” A New Way to Food: Recipes That Revamped My Pantry & Made Me Love Me, At Last
