Welcome to Brown is the New Pink! This blog is where I share day-to-day happenings and my interest in health, wellness, and social justice. For me, wellness extends beyond eating healthy foods and exercising; I feel my best when I take care of my mind, body, and spirit. My goal for this blog is to try to address physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. I plan for Brown is the New Pink to be a compilation of daily life, recipes, exercise ideas, reviews, psychosocial health information and tips, and things that inspire me. Ultimately, I want to live a life filled with love, joy, and gratitude, and Brown is the new Pink is my tool for keeping myself accountable. 969329_3307329658566_1113966316_n-2

My name is Ali. I’m 26 years old, and I live with my husband Derek in Indianapolis, Indiana. I am a social worker by day and a wannabe foodie by night. Besides cooking and eating, I enjoy reading, watching movies, running, and traveling. Though I love my Netflix and wine nights at home, I am always up for trying something new and going on an adventure. My passions are helping people, fro-yo, social justice, puppies, making lists, and leaving my small corner of the world better than I found it. I hope that you have fun, feel inspired, or learn something new here. Thank you for reading!
