Meet Emilie & Maggie
We are so excited about this collab!
Hi all! I’m so excited you’re here and even more excited you’re joining us this week for our summer reset. My name is Emilie Blanchard and I’m the owner/ brand creator of Tasty As Fit the Instagram, as well as Tasty As Fit the plant-based storefront.
Maggie and I decided to join forces and pull all of our favorite tips and tricks into one “reset” to help kickstart and restore your mind and body after quarantine and summer activities. The goal of this reset is to make you feel GOOD. Add in what you can, leave the rest!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with TAF, let me give you a little background. After getting married and moving to Columbia, SC from New York City, I was in the middle of a major career shift from broadcast to…well at the time I had no idea.
I started this Instagram as my own personal therapy and the place where I could keep all my recipe creations. During this time of major change, I always came back to my kitchen for comfort, and that comfort grew to be my life long mission.
After only a few posts, a mother who lived close by asked for my help in steering her family towards a “healthy” lifestyle by preparing a few weekly meals for them. Through solely word of mouth and the power of social media, within a few short months I was cooking for up to 20 families and loving every second.
In September 2018 Tasty As Fit, the store-front, was born. We started out with one employee ( that’s me ) and now incredibly proud to say we staff over a dozen team members, a team in which I am proud to refer to as my “family”. With this growth and pure demand we have since shifted from a meal-prep model to our current everyday grab-n-go model.
Columbia is where I will continue to create, learn, and serve those locally, and my Instagram is where I will continue to serve those globally. It has been an absolute dream being able to live out my passions and call it “work.”
I truly believe once you teach your body to love real food it will not crave much else, and that is what I love helping people discover most through Tasty As Fit, and even more fittingly, THIS SUMMER RESET!!!
Hey hey! Thank you for stopping by! So excited to share with you our summer reset. My name is Maggie Rawlins and I was born and raised in South Carolina, where I met Emilie in high school! I am a registered nurse and also a model with the Lions, NY where I have spent the past 5 years traveling extensively for work. I have had the unique opportunity to learn about health and wellness not only from a medical standpoint, but also through my personal experience as a model.
I have learned so much over the past years and this summer reset felt like the prefect time to share some of the things that I have picked up along the way. Looking “good” on the outside doesn’t always mean healthy, and mind and body go hand-in-hand in my book. I try to focus on holistic health, caring for the whole person, not just physical appearance. It took some time, but I finally learned that focusing on what my body and mind needed was more important than what the industry standards told me I needed.
So excited to share this experience with you and I truly think that there is something here for everyone. Whether its a healthy recipe, a suggested workout routine, or just a life hack that may help you keep a clear head as you go about your day - we want to encourage just as much lifestyle and mental health as we do physical fitness. Healthy minds = Healthy bodies.
Thanks for joining along in the journey! Excited to spend the week with you!
