The Ladies Behind the Project

Sexy Delicious Healthy is made possible thanks to these dedicated women
Alicia Racine
Concept Designer


Alicia Racine is an actress, singer, psychoanalytic life coach, and the creator of the Facebook group Sexy Delicious Healthy. Originally, the group functioned as a place to discuss fitness and share healthy recipes, but Alicia could hear the unspoken insecurities, feel the pain, and see the beauty waiting to shine. In true Alicia fashion, she challenged the group members to recognize their complicated relationships with food and dared group members to be authentic and share their story. Alicia is pouring her heart and expertise into developing and co-writing our therapeutic cookbook.

Alicia is a force born with many gifts and she uses her fiery spirit and creative talents to improve the lives of others.
