JTG Podcast Episode #5 Jolene Hart Author of The Eat Pretty Book Series And Her Journey To Healing Eczema & Acne
Jolene Hart is a health coach certified by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, a former magazine beauty editor, and founder of the pioneering beauty coaching practice Beauty Is Wellness. She’s the author of Eat Pretty, a guide to looking and feeling beautiful using nutrition and self-care, as well as the companion journal Eat Pretty, Live Well, and the book of daily inspirations Eat Pretty Every Day. Since their publication, the Eat Pretty books have been translated into four languages, and have been featured in InStyle, Martha Stewart Living, Refinery 29, Design Sponge, Mind Body Green and Well + Good.
At the heart of Jolene’s work is her desire to empower women with knowledge of their own ability to shape their lifelong beauty and health with the healing powers of food and self-care.

Jolene’s favourite organization she likes to support:
“I support Unite for HER, a truly unique breast cancer nonprofit based in Philadelphia that provides support to women with breast cancer in the form of free complementary therapies. The therapies include acupuncture, yoga, an organic CSA with nutrition counseling, education on choosing healthy personal care products, and in-home massage, among other opportunities. I’ve had the privilege of serving as Unite for HER’s Beauty and Wellness advisor and providing all of their cosmetic and beauty education for the past 4 years, and we’ve just launched our first national offering, a Breast Cancer care box that can be gifted to a women with breast cancer to provide comfort, support, and connection. I believe the work of this organization could serve as a model for cancer support around the country and the world.”
Pay it forward: highlight someone who is doing good work in the field of holistic medicine, transformation or giving back:
“It’s hard to choose just one person to highlight, but I’m always inspired by the work of Rebecca Casciano, who started her beauty career as a makeup artist and has over the last few years transitioned to educate and provoke deeper discussions on beauty through her inspiring Sacred Beauty Salon. I think in order to get to a place where we love, accept, and feel confident about our own appearance, it’s important to question our foundational beliefs about beauty as Rebecca does in her work.”
Last parting thoughts: what is the takeaway you want people to have? A heartfelt message of empowerment for women listening?
“Remember that making small shifts to your diet and lifestyle can make the biggest impact on the way you look and feel. It’s not necessary to completely overhaul your life or adhere to a strict approach to nutrition or exercise in the pursuit of clear skin or a more youthful glow. Start by eating what’s fresh and in season, pay close attention to what is making your unique body feel its best, and begin making changes to your routine where it feels right to you.”
