Interview with Alysia from Purely Pope
Tell us about yourself! What’s your name, where do you live, where do you work?
Hi! My name is Alysia Pope and I live/work in Marina del Rey, CA. I work remotely as the Director of Events for HelloWellness. We’re a company that connects the wellness community in real life, and I couldn’t love our mission more! I’m health and wellness obsessed, and am a true cali girl at heart. I’m enrolled at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition to become a certified health coach, and I cannot wait to have additional validity behind my passion and my blog, PurelyPope. PurelyPope is my blog focused on all things health and wellness. I share recipes, travel tips, my fitness routine and everything in between.
Share your approach to food with us: what do you like to cook? Why?
There is something special about creating what you’re putting into your body. I truly believe that food is fuel and food is medicine. There is a science behind nutrition and fueling your body to feel your best. I think the most impactful way to improve your overall health is from what you put into your body, and that is truly magical! I love to bake healthy desserts (sweet tooth addict), easy weeknight meals and lunches, re-made and healthified favorite meals of my boyfriend, and of course healthy breakfasts!
