Get an evening of raw love with FoodByMaria next week

Jan 31 2018, 8:19 pm

The love of oneself is an important, though sometimes difficult, thing.

Maria Koutsogiannis, the Maria behind the food/photography/lifestyle website FoodByMaria, will be giving a talk on that very subject on Tuesday evening at the This Raw Love event.

Starting off with a Radiant Beauty workshop hosted by Kelsey Schiavon, This Raw Love will then follow Koutsogiannis on her journey through bulimia, her passion for healthy eating, and how she began loving herself unapologetically.

“When I leave this earth I want my kids to know that their Mama helped change the way millions of people see and understand food, how they value their bodies, and, most importantly, create an amazing relationship with their first lover, themselves,” Koutsogiannis wrote in an email to Daily Hive.

“The fire in my soul for these topics in ever-growing and the force continues to fuel new beginnings.”

Attendees of the event will explore themes of body positivity, self-love, and, in Koutsogiannis’ words, “learning to forgive yourself when you shame the amazing person in the mirror.”

This Raw Love is organized by Your Mindful Collective, a group that showcases local businesses and offers “health, help and positive energy when you need it.”

The event will run from 6 to 9 pm on Tuesday, February 6 at the St. Louis Hotel on 8th Avenue SE.

Tickets cost $40 per person, and it is noted that anyone encountering a financial barrier to attending the event should email the organizers at [email protected], who will gladly help you out.
