Kansas City Area Wellness Resources:
If you, like me, live in the Kansas City area, here are some wellness resources to aid you on your health journey. If you decide to work with any of them, please let them know you heard about them here, at Soul.Body.Food.
Much like a Health Coach, your relationship with a personal trainer is exactly that — personal. If you decide personal training is for you, here are some personal trainers in the KC area who might be a great fit for you.
E.H. Fitness: If you are a women with fitness goals to achieve, Erin Heide of E.H. Fitness is a great choice. She does both personal training and group Boot Camp programs. Check her out to see if she’s the right fit for you?
Lee Fenwick: Lee works with women and men of all ages to turn them into the healthy, strong and self-confident people they are meant to be.
I’ve only ever worked with one chiropractor, so while I don’t have anyone else to compare her to, I do know that she is a great listener, and cares about your overall well-being — not just your spinal health. After all, since your spinal column connects to all the nerves in all the systems of your body, good spinal health contributes to great overall health.

Home cooking can be healthy, affordable, and delicious, but every once in a while, it’s good to give the cook a break and enjoy good food and good company at a restaurant. I have not tried all of the restaurants listed, but I plan to visit them and add a review for each listing. Stay tuned!
Vegan: If you don’t eat anything with a face or a mother, you still have a lot of restaurant options in Kansas City. Here are some primarily vegetarian and vegan restaurants (for a more complete list that includes restaurants with vegan friendly items, please visit VegKC.com):
Conveniently Natural (technically a delivery service, but they offer a Thursday lunch buffet)
Mud Pie (Coffeehouse and Bakery)
Gluten Free: I just found this awesome resource for anyone in the country — not just KC peeps. It’s the Gluten Free Registry, and you can search by city and state for gluten free friendly restaurants. Super cool.
A lot of restaurants offer gluten-free options, but I want to point out one in particular.
Waldo Pizza: Are you gluten-free and vegan? Do you like pizza? Waldo offers both gluten-free and vegan pizza. Crazy? More like Crazy Awesome!
Local Food: Restaurants are starting to pick up on the fact that their customers enjoy eating food that came from nearby. KC Food Circle has a great resource page that lists these restaurants that source local ingredients. If you’re going to go out to eat, you might as well check out some of these gems.
Local to Our Area (doesn’t necessarily use local food):
Even if they don’t use local ingredients, at least by supporting these guys, you’ll be supporting the local economy. And you’ll be getting some tasty food in the process. Here are a couple websites that list local restaurants:
Kansas City Originals (and they offer a discount/rewards card, which is pretty sweet)
