Nicole Berrie is the founder and editor of Bonberi, a curated guide to food and well-being. Thanks to her background in magazines, it has a high-end, perfectly curated look that’s made it a favorite of fashion insiders.
The best career advice I’ve ever received is take yourself out of the equation. If you show up to serve people, you will be supported and successful.
My first job was a PR assistant at a beauty brand and what I learned from it was that the corporate world was not for me.
The best way to handle a setback is to get creative and pivot.
I tap into creativity and inspiration by meditating.
The first thing I do every morning is meditate for 10 minutes.
The thing I’ve achieved that I am most proud of is opening Bonberi on Bleecker, a plant-based pop-up deli with grab-and-go dishes. It’s always been a dream of mine to run a shop where people could eat the food I make for myself and for my site. It’s so rewarding to see people buy a dish and then tell me they loved it!
I’ve been interested in food ever since I can remember! I always loved experimenting in the kitchen. As a child, my favorite things to make were cinnamon sugar toast (not exactly healthy) and “stone” soup from one of my favorite childhood books, which was basically vegetable soup with a rock (cleaned first!) in it.
Three things that everyone should consider adding to their diet are more raw leafy greens, fermented vegetables like sauerkraut and kimchi, and fruit!
I maintain balance in my life by being a mom. There’s nothing like a three-year-old and three-month-old to jolt you back to the present moment.
The one thing I would like to say to every woman in the world is you’re good enough just as you are.
