About WDIET

The WDIET philosophy simply put is: Eat whatever you wish, in extreme moderation, with some knowledge of where your food comes from and how your body reacts to what you feed it. We are magnificent beings and deserve the best! The best type of food for the body and spirit are fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, sea algae, and seeds. Processed and genetically engineered foods are foreign to the body and should be avoided.

Smile often and drink plenty of water! It makes all of the difference in how one feels each day.

About Kalalea

KalaLea’s professional endeavors have spanned interactive production, copywriting, photography, yoga instruction and reiki offerings. And as a former health coach and restaurant owner, her enduring passion for food has led to a fascination with our relationships with it.

New York City has been KalaLea’s home for nearly sixteen years, though she’s also traveled Europe, Japan, West Africa, the Caribbean, Australia, and Brazil on a personal quest to observe how other cultures relate to one another via food.

From each journey she has returned with countless spices for cooking inspiration. Now her intention is to engage people in a dialogue around why we eat what we eat, encouraging them to ask, “Why Did I Eat That?” plus dig a little deeper.

KalaLea is currently working on a memoir and self-help book also titled Why Did I Eat That? which maps her 20-year focused relationship with food. It’s full of personal anecdotes, illustrations, and recipes. The goal is to inspire others to practice eating with eyes wide open.

hugs = money

Two weeks ago, I was inspired by the story of two Canadian roommates who decided NOT to spend money for one year. Together they saved more than 55,000 US dollars. This intrigued me because I believe that in New York City, one cannot walk out the door without dropping $20…
