What’s the site about?
Thank you for stopping by The Whole + Happy Life! We are two sisters on a quest to take the confusion out of healthy eating + living. No myths, fads and no pseudo-scientific BS.
Are you confused about what to eat? Are you getting the most out of your workouts? Is the latest research making your head spin?
Do you find yourself overwhelmed with sooooooooo much of information out there? And to make things worse it’s often contradictory as well?
Should you be paleo, vegan, pegan (yes, that’s a thing!), low-fat, low-carb or should you just not bother because you’re confused, demotivated, too stressed out and just don’t have enough time to figure it out. We hear you! It’s often stressful, frustrating and just too complicated!
So why not join us on our quest to take the fads, fuss and boring out of healthy eating and living. We have designed this website to give you easy and simple tips on food and fitness, nutrition and movement, lifestyle and positive psychology- all backed by latest scientific research.

Our approach to health is both scientific and holistic. So what does holistic mean? Basically, we believe that good health comes from a mind-body-spirit approach. Does that sound too woo-woo?
