  1. Four years ago, Rosie was asked to be her best friends Maid of Honor. Rosie decided to eat clean and focus on eating mostly veggies. This began her clean eating wellness journey. She started with a restrictive plant based route, but soon learned that balance was necessary. [03:39]

  6. Meal prepping. Mason jar salads. So easy to pop lid off and throw in dressing. Pre Packed salads and meals, plus the ingredients for other meals for longer trips. Filling meals don't require snacking. Bars, chips, chocolate, and fruit are great snacks. [16:51]
  7. Flight attendants don't have liquid restrictions. Being a flight attendant is such a cool job. The travel and flexibility is amazing. The importance of pursuing your true happiness and when work isn't work. [22:06]
