Blacktastic on No Chew Wednesdays!

Greetings and Happy Wellness Wednesday!

As we continue flowing through Black History Month, I wanted to take a moment to highlight four new amazing Blacktastic pioneers on my list in Health, Wellness, and Business. Yes! These folks have definitely created a space for themselves and should be recognized.


BHM Fun Fact 4 - (February 4th) - Queen Afua is a New York Times best-selling author, holistic health practitioner, and wellness coach. For more than 40 years, she has been a leader in the wellness space and is best known for helping women heal trauma in the womb and their life.


BHM Fun Fact 5 - (February 5th) - Sheila Johnson is an American businesswoman, co-founder of BET, CEO of Salamander Hotels and Resorts, and the first billionaire African American woman. Johnson is a team president, managing partner, and governor of the WNBA’s Washington Mystics, a position she earned before the 2005 season.

BHM Fun Fact 6 - (February 6th) - Arthur Gaston established the Citizens Savings and Loan Association, the A.G. Gaston Construction Co., and CF Bancshares, a financial institution. Gaston was one of the richest African-American men in the U.S. throughout the 1960s. He was a leading employer of African-Americans in Alabama.

BHM Fun Fact 7 - (February 7th) - James McCune Smith, MD was a man of first. In 1837, he became the first black American to receive a medical degree. He was also the first black person to own and operate a pharmacy in the U.S. and the first black physician to be published in U.S. medical journals.

If you didn't get my Black History Month picks from February 1-3rd, I decided to archive them in this LIST HERE. Check out who you might have missed.

Consider This as We Ride Over Hump Day that I Started Doing:

Since it’s Wellness Wednesday, I wanted to share something that I am now incorporating every week to create discipline and control in my eating. I have started doing a No Chew Wednesday — Yes! I have incorporated a day of fasting every hump day and I feel really great. Check out my No Chew Wednesday Video to learn more about what I do.


I would love to hear from you if you would incorporate something like this weekly to support your well-being.

Send me a response email. I would love to hear from you.


Okay, take care for now and talk to you soon!
