Heather Braaten is a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach and owner and creator of Real Food Ready – A Healthy Meal Delivery Service in Denver. She is a plant-passionate foodie on a mission to change the world, one healthy eater at a time.
Through her 20s, Heather struggled with a variety of a illnesses from weakened immune function and a digestive system destroyed by antibiotics and poor diet. She battled chronic bladder and yeast infections, and fought off endless colds and flu’s. At the time, it seemed par for the course, as everyone around her had similar problems. She began to seek natural solutions, but always returned to her sugary addictions and love of junk food. So, what changed?
She grew a garden. She began to cook meals at home. She started to eliminate refined and processed foods. She fell in love with real food. Her passion led her to becoming a Board Certified Holistic Health Coach, teaching others to balance their physical, emotional and spiritual self.
Heather sees food as a great connector. Connecting us to each other, to the earth, to our culture and allowing us a deeper understanding of our own bodies. The food we eat literally creates every cell in our body. WE ARE WHAT WE EAT – but, more importantly – we are HOW we eat. When this is truly learned, the real healing can occur and stubborn weight can be released.
Heather has a passion for food, nutrition, health and happiness. Her goal as an educator is to infuse others with this passion, in the hopes of spreading vibrant health, optimal energy and wellbeing to their lives.
