Our goal is to get healthy from the inside out with focus on our mind, body & soul through food and self-care. We love that you have tuned in to us so let us go ahead and share with you a little about each of us.
I’m Revital, one of the creators of Clean Belly. I have always cared deeply about taking care of my body whether it be through food, exercise or mindfulness. Health and wellness has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember and all of the paths I have gone down have led me to where I am at today. My husband and I started Revital Exotic Jewelry & Apparel over a decade ago, which allowed me to to travel to Thailand, India & Israel just to name a few of the beautiful places. Through all of my travels, I realized my desire to to expand my career into the health and wellness industry, and so a new chapter in my story of life began.
My first professional step into the health and wellness industry was becoming a level three reiki master. My curiosity to understand more about the energy that is given off and accepted by other people was not only fascinating to me but also therapeutic at the same time. I truly loved the feeling I got helping others feel more in tune with themselves, which is what led me to continue my studies at the School of Holistic Massage & Reflexology at Sohmar.
Through all of this I felt like I was able make a connection between energy and food, which made me more focused on the food I was putting into my own body.
It wasn’t until I had my first child in 2016 who suffers from severe gut and skin issues that I went on my deep quest to learn as much as I could about the best way to feed our bodies in order to maintain proper balance with in.
I was on a mission to heal my daughter which is when I became a certified health and nutritional medicine coach through the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute and the Rambam School Israel with Dr. Gil Yosef Schahar. Earning degrees from these two schools were pivotal moments in my life journey and gave me total confidence to not only be able to heal my own child but also help to heal so many others as well.
Through it all I can safely say that my children have been my biggest accomplishments and my greatest teachers. I am finding great joy in living my life as a mom, wife & wholistic transformationalist. Being the healthiest version of myself has brought me a sense of calm within and I’m so incredibly happy I now have the chance to share it all with you.
I’m Lauren, the co-creator of Clean belly. If I were to reflect on my life journey I would say that it has been a true evolution of growth. I knew I always had the natural desire to help others and a true love for good food but I didn’t realize how those two would mesh together so smoothly to ultimately create my career as a private chef.
My path that got me to where I am today began while attending The University of Cincinnati, where I earned an Associates Degree in Communications. It was there where I got my first job at an organic juice bar, and learned the real importance each fruit, vegetable and herb had on our bodies. I was mesmerized at the simplicity of the ingredients I was using and the difference I felt in myself mentally and physically by adding more of the “plant life” into my daily routine.
It was here that I knew being in the kitchen was where I felt my most true and open self. I was able to take the skills I learned in Spain to work at Mario Batalis tapas bar Casa Mono in NYC & Alice Waters restaurant Chez Panisse in Berkeley, California. The legend, Alice Waters, was the creator of the farm-to-table movement which was a major factor in why my career changed from working in restaurants to becoming a private chef in the city of Chicago. I loved being able to create my own menus, source my own ingredients locally and help others get healthy from the inside out.
It wasn’t until I had my daughter in 2016 that I decided that I wanted to make some big changes at home and go the naturopathic route with my family. This led me into my quest to dive deeper into the human body and really dig deep into the importance of gut health. It became so important for me to make sure I was providing my family with a natural lifestyle so they felt good from the inside out. Through it all, I have found such a sense of peace in my life, and I’m so excited that you all are here to join on this journey with me.
