The holidays are a time of over-indulgence and generosity. There are parties, desserts, and treats everywhere you look. We all let loose during the holidays and think, “This only happens once a year so it’s okay to eat anything I want.” But come January when you step on the scale, you regret the extra calories and vow it won’t happen again.

I am Donna Marie, Vision Chef of Food For The Soul. I was born and raised in Jamaica (the Caribbean–not the neighborhood in Queens, New York) and have lived in the United States for over 30 years.
In the early 2000’s, I came across Zig Ziglar’s quote, “People often say motivation doesn’t last. Neither does bathing–that’s why we recommend it daily” and I had an epiphany; being inspired is a practice, a habit that needs consistent nurturing.
So I began my daily practice that included reviewing an inspirational saying each morning and setting an intention for the day. I got so much out of this that I started sharing these quotes with my friends; this took off and I was inspired to officially launch food for the soul™ at a neighborhood spot, The Broken Cup, in 2007.
