Interview with Alysia from Purely Pope

 In WTR Spotlight

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! 

Describe your food personality in 5-7 words:
