Dana James is the founder of Food Coach NYC and LA, a functional medicine nutrition practice that helps correct imbalances through nutrition intervention and psychological exploration. Translation? There’s a connection between what’s going on in your head and what goes on your plate. Dana's goal: help women restore that balance so the food-body-mind relationship has the Happily-Ever-After it deserves. This triple-certified nutritionist shares why meditation is crucial, and what products she swears by for a happier morning and evening routine.
Raquel Pelzel, senior food editor of Tasting Table, knows a thing or 20 about telling stories through food. In fact, Raquel's first cookbook, Toast, is a staple in the Love Your Mornings kitchen! Not only is Raquel the foodiest of foodies, she’s also fun, authentic, and inspiring. Raquel shares her favorite toast recipe, tips on working in a bakery, and her morning routine.

MUSE OF THE DAY @rashiabell is an interior designer, crystal healer and one-half of the duo behind The Crystalline, a multi-faceted lifestyle service that helps people create balanced energy.
HEALTH HINT This is a phone built with wellness in mind. The Siempo smartphone reduces distractions and has a 'mindful morning' feature so you can block out AM hours for meditation rather than social media.
LIFE LAW Try practicing mindfulness at MOMA. On the first Wednesday of every month, the museum opens its doors early in the morning for an hour of distraction-free gallery gazing, followed by a 30-minute guided meditation.

WORDS "I am madly in love with humans. Especially the strange ones. For it is ever so beautiful to be strange. To do things differently than others. To see things in a rare light. To me, that is such gold to carry." - Christopher Poindexter
