daphne oz’s guide to healthy living

Everyone knows of Dr. Oz – but how many people know that his daughter, Daphne, is following in his footsteps as a health leader for the younger generation?

Daphne, age 27, is a published author, host of a food-related talk show, journalist, Princeton graduate, and wife… and did I mention she is also Dr. Oz’s daughter?

Her book, Relish: An Adventure in Food, Style, and Everyday Fun, is currently in my Amazon shopping cart. Her first book (and national bestseller), The Dorm Room Diet, should be a staple for all incoming freshman hoping to implement healthy habits after they leave the nest. I lived at home during college – so I was fortunate enough to have at least a few healthy, home-cooked meals every week (thank you mom!) – but I knew many students who spent their college years loading up on pizza, burritos, and red bull. And should I mention that her Pinterest boards are amazing?

She’s an example of a girl that comes from a very well-known, well-respected, and wealthy family – but has made a name for herself on her own by capitalizing on her strengths. Yes, she has the last name “Oz.” But she’s had to work extremely hard to get to where she is today regardless. Her last name didn’t guarantee her success; if anything, it put extra pressure on her to succeed and live up to her parents’ success.

I love that she’s passionate about healthy living in all aspects of life – fitness, nutrition, relationships, stress, and overall happiness. And while her passion for food may have been in part due to her upbringing (I can relate, but with commercial real estate), it takes hard work, drive, and determination to add a twist to your family’s business and make it your own. I’m still working on that every day. I grew up in a commercial real estate family… and not surprisingly, after years and years of dinner table talk about Class A versus Class B buildings, my dad’s negotiations, the amazing clients he’s gotten to know over the years, and seeing how an office can transform a company’s culture, it became my passion too. And my mom’s. And one of my two brothers’. Somehow my youngest brother missed the real estate trend and wants to go in a completely different direction!

I grew up immersed in something that my dad is extremely passionate about… and passion is contagious. Now that passion is my own passion too. I haven’t written a book about it like Daphne has – and I definitely don’t star in a reality show like she does – but I can’t help but admire her for her accomplishments, poise, and truly positive impact on the world in helping young people develop better eating habits and build sustainable, healthy lifestyles.

A few fun facts…

A book review on Relish to come soon! Just as soon as I finish Lean In…
