Hello, friends! We're Simon & Rebekah Villeneuve.
Individually, Simon's a creative professional and Rebekah's a mama to our two kiddos. Together, we're on a mission to inspire better health for your whole family. And we believe that better health starts with better food.
Our journey to real food started a number of years ago when Simon was having lifestyle-altering digestive issues. It was not easily solvable, and after many tests, including an endoscopy and multiple emergency room visits, good ‘ol healthcare tacked it up as irritated bowel syndrome.
We knew that there was more to the equation and that we could probably solve this issue if we simply started eating better. We spent a few years trying to find a real food diet that would work for us. We tried a number of popular diets including vegetarian, raw, and paleo. Our experience showed us that choosing the right real food diet for your own body can be difficult. Some diets seemed so similar it was hard to tell the difference! While others seemed to say the exact opposite as another.
That’s why we created Real Food Diets. It's got all the right information in one place, making it easy for you to compare diets and decide which is right for you. Plus, fantastic recipes and resources to get you started.
Eating clean is complicated. Lifestyles vary, bodies are different, and it can be confusing knowing which diet is right for you. Additionally, different diets may be needed during different seasons of life such as Raw for detoxification or Paleo for fertility, but we’ve found systems that make it easy. Real Food Diets is a way to share those smart systems with you.
Real food is a journey and you will learn by eating. Count this year as a commitment to trying, exploring, and not giving up. We are passionate about real food, and we want you to be too.
