Who is Ivy Carnegie? Can you share a quick bio with us – where you’re from, what you do, and how you got where you are.

I am from a tiny farm town in Illinois, I have 5 siblings and I met my husband when I was 11 years old. I have also been modeling for 11 years. My husband and I started a juice company, Drinkbar Juicery, in 2012. I got where I am through pure perseverance and trusting the ‘man upstairs.’ I realized a long, long time ago that even people that work really hard do not always end up with what they want. I knew I had to give it all I had, regardless of what came at me.

How did you start your health blogging career?
It is weird to hear someone call it a ‘health blogging career’ as I was just putting out things I absolutely loved. To make a long story short, I was really sick about 12 years ago and discovered how important nutrition and healing my body through food was. I discovered I could not trust doctors or pharmaceutical companies to know what was best for my body. I had to really lead with my intuition and study everything there was to know that Mother Nature provided for us. It was such a humbling experience. It was a long, quiet road that really gave me a deep empathy and understanding for those who have a diagnosis that makes them feel like their body is not on their side. It gave me a new perspective on what it feels like to be healthy and vibrant and gave me a crazy fire to want to help others get there too.

Where do you get inspiration?
Oh, that is easy– Watching people find new hope after deeply nourishing their body. That moment between the person seeking help and I find a deep connection & understanding. It ignites me every single time. I want to do cartwheels with them and then eat bananas.

Describe your personal style in three words.

Easy, gray, and denim.

I will never leave my house without. 

A liter of water and an apple.

What’s your mantra?
