Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you dedicated a year of your life to your health? I know I certainly have. I’ve often wondered what would happen if I really committed myself to all aspects of health. If I stopped avoiding things like dry brushing and ACTUALLY drank enough water.
But with so many things out there, it gets incredibly confusing figuring out what is actually worthwhile vs. what isn’t worth your time. Because unless you have unlimited time and funds, doing everything just isn’t an option.
That’s exactly the situation Phoebe Lapine found herself in. After a diagnosis of Hashimoto Thyroiditis, she had to figure out how to manage her disease holistically without having an endless to-do-list of things to do.
Phoebe wanted to figure out how to do right by her body without having to give up her life. If that doesn’t scream HEALTHY MAVEN I don’t know what does. I’m all about health, but not when it takes over your life. It’s important to live healthfully, not live for your health.
So when Phoebe announced she was committing herself to a yearlong exploration of this topic and how she was learning to balance health and hedonism, I was pretty stoked. I followed along as she captured her journey on her blog and have been eagerly awaiting the release of her book, The Wellness Project that tracks her entire journey and lessons learned.
If you read The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, the concept is similar. Phoebe spent a month dedicated to 12 different topics and explored health from all angles. From her experiences she also built out a curriculum to help you guys create your own wellness projects if you wanted to try it out for yourself.

Change up your pizza night with this zucchini and ricotta pizza. We think we need tomato sauce, but you really don’t! This combo will definitely change your mind.
You know those nights when you just can’t fathom the idea of cooking dinner, but you don’t want another takeout meal? Hi! That’s me at least once a week and if you follow me on Instagram stories you know that my cure to this problem is PIZZA NIGHT!
I’m not sure why, but for a while we reserved pizza night for special occasions. My guess is that since pizza isn’t always deemed the “healthiest” food on the block, even I developed guilty feelings around it. And well, if I have any kind of messed up relationship with food, you know I need to tackle that stuff head on. Because let’s be real, a life without pizza is one sad life indeed.
So I decided to experiment with recipes and see how I could bring more pizza back into my life. In the process, I also discovered how easy it is to make for a quick, weeknight dinner. That is if you have some pizza dough on hand already.
