Hi! I'm Karen Hix, the creator of Fresh Whole Plantiful ... a health and wellness website! As a culinary nutrition expert and recipe developer, I am passionate about holistic health and teaching others how to use whole foods as medicine and incorporate nutrient dense healing foods into their diet.
I am a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners and an honorary graduate of the Academy of Culinary Nutrition in 2019.
I’ve always eaten “healthy” throughout my lifetime, but my dietary lifestyle was continually changing according to the latest dietary trends. But during the last decade, I personally observed many loved ones getting sick with Western diseases. This encouraged me to aggressively research dietary and lifestyle changes which could help eradicate and/or prevent such debilitating diseases. Countless articles, web searches, books, videos, etc. over a period of the last eight years brought me to my conclusion that we were designed to eat living, plant-based foods. I stand firm in my belief today that my basic food philosophy is to eat real foods just as they were created, focusing on a plant-rich lifestyle. Plant micronutrients contain vitamins, minerals and enzymes which, when consumed, are deposited into the body. Foods containing fresh, organic, simple, whole ingredients such as vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, beans and legumes give life and are powerfully healing! In summary, it’s about getting back to real, whole foods that are minimally processed and full of nutrients, along with implementing healthy lifestyle habits that will help our body thrive.
I love to share my passion on creating healthy, delicious and nutritious plant-powered, mostly dairy-free and gluten-free recipes that nourish your body from the inside out. I believe that healthy doesn’t have to be hard, restrictive and boring. I hope that you feel inspired through my good food with lots of flavor, and join me in getting started on your path to health!
