I'm Vickie and I developed the Whole Food Real Life Wellness Program because I wholeheartedly believe that healthy eating and living in abundance is possible. Life should be rich, fun, and awe-inspiring. Healthy food should be whole, fresh, beautiful, and easy to prepare.
I am a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach, Certified Life Coach, and Educator. I am a graduate of the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy, Inc. This coaching program is through the The Institute of Functional Medicine and is associated with the Cleveland Clinic. As well, I am a wife, mother, and grandmother. I am so excited about the program I have developed and would like to share it with you!
The Whole Food Real Life Wellness Program’s philosophy is this:
I have come to fully enjoy real whole foods! I enjoy the taste and texture, the beauty and the aroma of whole food. I have learned that consuming whole, fresh food.. as close to its natural state as possible, is what was intended by our Creator! I feel that I’m missing out on nothing by eliminating processed foods, expect the misery that comes from eating non-food products.
I am well aware of how busy schedules can lead to an unhealthy lifestyle and throw everything out of balance. However, with tips and tricks, you can manage to eat well and maintain great health. You can learn to manage stress, find your strengths, and limit obstacles that stand in your way of success.
When Real Life shows up, and it will, there are strategies that will make living a healthy lifestyle, sustainable, even during the busiest of times. Take away the excuses, you know the ones that sound defeatist, hopeless, bleak, and gloomy. Start by making yourself the priority in your life. Trust me, everyone around you, including you, will be grateful!
