Connie Bendickson

Hi – I’m Connie. I help Christian moms thrive by making food and lifestyle changes that lead to wellness for themselves and their families. Nutrition has been my passion for a couple decades which means my kids grew up drinking green smoothies and getting hooked on real food. But that doesn’t mean I want to spend hours in the kitchen. I teach women how to get back to the basics to make healthy eating simple, nutritious, and delicious.

Ultimately, my food philosophy boils down to eating real food. I feel best when I eat lots of vegetables, some fruit, clean meats, pastured eggs, a few nuts and seeds, organic dark chocolate 😊 and gluten-free grains on occasion. I love the simplicity of eating this way and though I have restrictions (gf/df/corn/soy/nightshades), I’m thrilled with the abundant variety of foods I eat – delicious and nutritious!

While food is foundational to wellness, it’s not everything. Other lifestyle factors greatly influence our health such as movement, cleansing, rest, and rhythm. In addition, we must care for all three parts of us – spirit, soul, and body – if we want to be well. Developing healthy habits in each of these areas is an ongoing journey that we explore in my Wellness Warriors Course.

Following Jesus is a big part of who I am. My heart’s desire is to know Him better each day and align my life with His. Wellness is ultimately about being who God uniquely created you to be, doing what He designed you to do, and enjoying the life He has given you – that’s how we thrive and cultivate a life well-lived!

If you’re curious about credentials, I hold a traditional naturopathy degree from Trinity School of Natural Health and I’m a graduate of the AFMCP® course through the Institute for Functional Medicine. Losing both of my parents to cancer led me to volunteer as a HealingStrong group leader.

Being in the trenches myself, feeding my family whole foods in the midst of a fast-food culture, finding ways to accommodate food sensitivities, and learning to take responsibility for my own health is instrumental in how I support others on their wellness journey.

Are you ready to thrive – not just survive? Join our next class and take your next step toward making wellness a way of life!
