Meet Your Hosts!


The Healthy Diva.

First and foremost I am a Food Nazi. I read labels, preach about what people should and shouldn’t eat, and haven’t read a piece of fiction for years because I’m too busy reading the latest health report on super foods and finding the next great Vegan recipe. I can get lost in a Whole Foods for hours, and if asked, “Have you seen that new food documentary?” Chances are I’ve seen it, twice. And while this blog will sometimes serve as my soap box to preach my latest conviction on “Eat this not that”, it really is a forum of honesty about where I stand with my food, my health, my emotions, and my body, with a recipe thrown in every now and again.

Attaining health is a journey. And coming into a “health consciousness” has been a process. It’s taken me many years to get to the point where I’m now taking responsibility for my own health and well-being. With that said, even though I know the right things to do, I still struggle making right choices for my health on a daily basis. I like junk food and I hate the gym! So, yes I’m human too.

My hope is that I can encourage you through my discoveries, victories and failures to treat your bodies like the beautiful temples that they are. And together we will redefine what it means to be healthy and beautiful.

Some other things you might want to know about me. Let’s start with a name? I’m Chante Trepte, a California girl at heart, but I reside in Phoenix.  I have three gorgeous girls, and a wonderful husband who loves me despite my ranting about health every day. I own my own production company, and have had the opportunity to work with wonderfully creative individuals to create “fashion films”.

 

Meet my friends, the other Divas.

Every now and then I will feature some of my close friends on the Blog.  They may share personal testimonies, recipes, reviews, or video’s of their latest health fling!

Jessica Kinni, is a model and reality star. She’s beautiful, smart, and has never had as an issue with weight. Like most young women, she took her health for granted. Many women think that because they are thin, they are healthy. However, over the past 2 years she’s become prone to food sensitivities and has had to develop a gluten-free lifestyle. For the first time ever she’s looking at the ingredients of her food over the calories, and having to learn how to cook all over again. Having an illness at such a young age has made her realize how unpredictable and fragile life really is, and that ulitmately she has to take control of her own health by making right choices everyday!

Cherelyn Baker, is a make-up artist, blogger, emcee, and mom. She has a heart for women: to love, encourage, edify and remind them how beautiful and valuable they are! Through her blog “Makeup University”, she tests and reviews beauty products, offers make-up tutorials, and even has her own ebook to teach you how to create the perfect glamour look for your wedding day.

Cherelyn answers the question, ” Is there a correlation between what you eat ad how  you look and feel? Does it make sense to feed your body with healthy food then cover your face in synthetic chemicals? Women absorb five pounds of toxins through their skin per year. She’s our go to beauty guru to find the best all natural skin care and organic make-up lines.

Jennifer Era, is a personal trainer and wellness consultant. She’s been in the fitness business well over 10 years teaching such classes as indoor cycling (my favorite!), pilates, body sculpting and kettle bells, just to name a few. She’s a nationally published fitness writer and even freelanced for a relationship advice column! But there’s even more to be impressed about, Jennifer is all about the business of helping and inspiring people, she started in fitness working with cancer survivors. Jennifer understands the struggle to be well, as she fights her own battle to overcome Lupus using natural remedies and nutrition.

Taliah Tsunis, is a fun, charming and spiritual young woman who strives to live the fast paced city life, and come home to her beloved shabby chic cottage to wind down in simple living. Born and raised a vegetarian, later turning vegan…she has grown up with the knowledge instilled of mindful, healthy eating.

Taliah has a sincere knack for creating healthy substitues for tasty treats that are free of “guilty” satisfaction, processed ingredients, and junk! She loves taking dishes that normally wouldn’t be included in a cruelty free diet and “veganizing” them where you can’t believe it’s really vegan! She did receive an education in culinary arts and blended it with her natural forte for health to create her growing personal chef business. While daily growth in mind, body and health are of importance, her true passion lies in the domestic lifestyle of taking care of the home and is looking forward to the future of cooking for a husband and children.

Brittney Castro, is a certified financial planner, entrepeneur and is the Founder and CEO of Financially Wise Women, a Los Angeles based financial planning firm for women. She specializes in working with busy professional and entrepreneurial women who are passionate about life and want to gain clarity around their money. Brittney’s mission is to help women plan and create the life of their dreams, free from anxiety about money. She is known for her innovative, non-judgmental, compassionate approach to financial planning. She has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Financial Planning Magazine, Investment News, and Registered Rep Magazine. Brittney one of our newest Divas, is a health nut! When she’s not at the office, you’ll find her working out, drinking green juice, dancing, or playing at the park with her dog Arya.

So let’s get started, this is going to be a wild and beautiful ride!

    Hi Chante-
    I want to say what a pleasure it was meeting another Christian sister while purchasing our Vitamix this week. I attached a picture of my Vitamix in all it’s glory, proudly displayed, (and used) in our kitchen. I read your blog and subscribed. I can tell you I reside in Phoenix metropolis but am a SoCal girl at heart too ! I would like to be able to write a testimony about your presentation and send it to your Company.If you can kindly let me know where I can email that to, that would be appreciated. I also looked up Graham Cooke and will be listening to some of his teachings, especially the one on the fruits of the Spirit. Praise God, another marriage rescued from the destroyer , who wants to wreak havoc in all marriages.

    I briefly told you a little bit about Javita Weight Loss coffee. I hope you had some time to check out the http://www.tryitusa.website.Did you get a chance to watch the internet radio show Rick and I did on KQCK? I also post some interesting things on my FB
    https://www.facebook.com/javita.gem. Some of the latest entries are an interview with Andrea Gephardt, a 30 year old Vice Principal at a school where 90 % of the kids parents are incarcerated. In 9 months time her families life has been transformed simply by sharing this healthy coffee with others. It is inspirational to say the least. I also have posted the proven and duplicate-able method for sharing this coffee, with home Java parties. Chante you have much influence in your sphere of who God has put in your life. I would love to partner with you to set up a party and see where this goes. This is really new to the Phoenix area and we can make a major impact.I look forward to your feedback.

    Blessings,
    Lori & Rick
