Rutsch serves these beet-and-oat smoothie bowls to balance and strengthen our connection to the earth.
Nicole Rutsch, Advertising and Marketing Communications '09, is the Brooklyn Fraulein, a healing chef who marries food with spirituality. Formerly a caterer to fashion events, she recently shifted to smaller gatherings in the wellness industry. This spring, Rutsch founded a cannabis lifestyle brand called Hint of Greens, encompassing retreats and products such as CBD tincture, bath salts, and tea blends. “Cannabis has been a little bit abused— it has such a strong male presence,” she says. “We want to bring out the goddess.” She is also launching an eight-week online coaching program that teaches intuitive eating.
