About Rawfully Wholesome
When I first started Rawfully Wholesome, I wanted the emphasis to be on incorporating more raw foods into your diet, hence the name. My website was all about Raw Vegan food. I never shared cooked vegan recipes, as I wanted to solely focus on raw food. As the years have rolled on, just like my diet, my journey has evolved, and I felt a real conviction to want to share that with you. I didn't want you to just see the raw foods, I ate. I wanted to share ALL the beautiful vegan foods we eat. I want you to get to know me, my family and my life, in its Raw-est state. Rawfully Wholesome has now taken on a whole new meaning, to me. It no longer simply means Raw food. It means Real. Vulnerable. Open. Honest. RAW.
A whole foods, plant-based diet, is the absolute optimal diet for true health and longevity. I also believe that incorporating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, is optimal, so long as you have access to high quality raw fruits and vegetables. If you live in a climate that is cold, and you do not have easy access to an abundance of this food, a well-balanced whole foods, cooked plant-based diet, with fresh fruit whenever possible, is still where it's at. I strive to create a place where you can come, for science-based information, and learn how you, too, can THRIVE on this lifestyle.
Firstly, DETOX your home! Detox your LIFE! Get RID of the toxins!! Get that junk OUT. We can preach about healthy vegan, organic food all day long, but if you are still using toxins in your home, or slathering toxins all over your body, then you've got it all wrong!
Secondly, the life you want, is the life you can have. What truly makes you happy? I want to show you that dreams, can become a reality, for you, in this lifetime. Lifestyle goals are different for everybody, but I also want to emphasize that having the big house, and dream car, won't make you a happy person. You won't feel truly fulfilled, within. Materialistic things can only fill a void, for so long, before you want something else, to try to fill another void. Chasing materialism, isn't going to give you the life you dream of. Finding what brings out the sparkle in your eye; the butterflies in your stomach. This is what you should be chasing. What are you doing to help the world and the people in it? At Rawfully Wholesome, I want to empower you to find that spark, grab ahold of it, and never let go. I run two successful online businesses, and I show others how they can do this too, by joining our awesome Rawfully Wholesome community!
Family is a huge part of Rawfully Wholesome. I have built my business around my family. I share my battles, my inner struggles, my fears, and my VICTORIES. Too often, social media is a place we look and all we see is perfection. People only show you what they want you to see. That can be pretty darn discouraging, for a mom who is having issues with her kids, and feels like she's the only one going through them. I've made it a point to be raw and real. To not put on a facade. To relate to other women. To find comfort in knowing I wasn't alone, and hopefully help other mothers feel like they're not alone, either. While family is a huge part of this platform, and my passion is in empowering mothers, I also love and appreciate every other demographic that follows and supports my journey and business. There is room for everyone, here!
Our biggest goal and desire, in life, is to create a happy home for our children. We always try to focus on the present, living in the moment, creating wonderful memories, and giving our kids everything we can. We desire a slow-paced, hustle-free life, living on lots of land, in a modest yet quaint home, growing our own food, and becoming (hopefully) 70-80% self-sustainable.
