Natalie Soeter

Hey, friend!

My name is Natalie Soeter, and I believe that wellness and healthy food can and should be a tool to enhance your life—not limit it. I believe in the power of prayer and the power of a bottle of wine, shared between friends. I believe in the power of whole food nutrition to heal and nourish your body but also think a good bowl of ice cream can soothe your troubles. I believe in educating others on the premise of longevity while at the same time indulging in yummy everyday life. 

I believe feeling your best is a way of thinking, living, and showing up for yourself by taking informed action based on education you can trust. Our mission is to help people turn daily practices and actions into long-term habits that improve your health. 

At HFI, we make it simple to learn the science of nutrition and the art of healthy living. We support our community with  evidenced-based health and nutrition, common sense style and delicious recipes. Getting healthy can actually be fun, easy and long lasting.
