Whole Food Challenge 2011-Meet the Contestants

Pin It

Ted Radcliffe

Self-Employed Web Designer & Developer

Ted LOVES…His son who lives far away, (and misses him a lot!) Playing in a band as a bass player, and cruising the seawall with his vintage cruiser bikes on a sunny day.

(Pssst…Feel free to check out his band: Wonderful Diving Horses)

Ted is INSPIRED to make conscious foods choices to get healthier in 2011 and has never had a vegan meal plan and is eager to try it out.

Ted’s CHALLENGE? He says he is a pretty basic (boring?) eater, coffee in the AM, sandwich at noon, and maybe rice or pasta and veggies and something to accompany that for dinner. He has started to turn to mixing and matching spices to his every day foods, but has ended up with nightmare dishes and tends to eat the same old stuff when he’s eating at home.

Ted is looking for every day eating choices that are healthy and yet interesting so he doesn’t have to eat out in pubs and restaurants and get fat.

Jennifer LOVES…her best friends Bridget and Jessica, fiancé Kevin, pug Winston, yoga, writing and sharing fantastic vegan food with the world

Jennifer is INSPIRED…to eat whole clean foods to benefit her yoga practice, especially before she is goingt to compete, feel good and avoid allergic reactions she gets when she eats processed foods.

Jennifer’s CHALLENGE? To eat whole clean food more consistently.

Ian Wenig

Ian works from his stress-free home office in the software industry

Ian LOVES… Life, Dance, Music, Clean Air, Food, Water, Creatures with more then 2 legs/arms including his cat Nilum; adventure & travel.

Ian is INSPIRED…to eat a whole food plant-based diet because…he just got off the plane from a two week eat and drink anything holiday in Mexico. And his liver and other organs are crying out for some good wholesome, energizing, alkaline-izing foods.

He also recently did a live blood analysis and he results were not impressive. He had thought of himself as a fairly healthy, no meat, semi-vegetarian. He did tend to enjoy wine and a few other slow killers including lots of cheese, sugars and a hefty cup of jabba in the morning.

Ian’s CHALLENGE? He doesn’t have a live in chef and he is” lazy” (his words not mine!), and tends to stick with what he knows best – bread, cheese, pasta, etc. Ian wants to kick the cheese and sugar habit and eat healthy consistently.
