About Nicole
I am a French Culinary Institute–trained chef and the founder and CEO of Splendid Spoon. Splendid Spoon delivers ready-to-eat plant-based meals along with mindfulness tips and support to form lifelong healthy habits. I am the author of SOUP CLEANSE COOKBOOK (Rodale, August 2016) and speaks nationally about the transformative nature of food and mealtime rituals. I live in Brooklyn, NY, with my two sons, Grover and Caleb.

Best advice you've ever been given

Listen to your gut. Hone your intuitive skills.

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

holistic living, female empowerment, connecting through food, philosophy, people, mindfulness, writing.

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

My kids getting hurt or sick.

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

We are raising capital so that’s my everything right now. It’s not easy, but it’s a worthy challenge at this point.

If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?

Be easier on yourself, let go more, play more!

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I am inspired by this new era of female independence and empowerment. I believe we are in the midst of a renaissance for women, and being a mom boss is absolutely a part of this cultural shift. I hope to share my story to inspire others, and learn from the stories of others as our tribe grows and gathers strength.
On a more practical level, I feel I have learned a lot by building my business and having two children over the past 3 years. I have learned a lot of tough lessons. If there is anything from my journey that can help other women, I would love to provide that knowledge. I am very practical when it comes to business-building, and I'd love to partner with other business-minded mamas to help mama entrepreneurs reach their goals and gain more autonomy in their professional life.
