Welcome. I'm Torie.

I am an Integrative Holistic Nutritionist (NC), trained chef specializing in natural foods, and the founder of The Vida Well, a wellness brand rooted in holistic nutrition and wholesome living.

Through great nutrition and fitness, I'm here to help people use food and cooking to provide fuel for the best life possible.

I pursued an education in holistic medicine and nutritional cooking at California Polytechnic State University where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Business, with a minor in Nutrition.

Some highlights so far include (the adventure's not over yet!): 

  • Opening a cooking school at Rancho La Puerta health Spa, the 2nd top-rated health spa in the world
  • Managing 10 farmers markets while being the assistant grower at Black Dog Farms Organics
  • Developing recipes and menus for Rancho La Puerta’s Juice Bar and Woholle Juice Bar in La Jolla, CA
  • Representing leading companies such as Bulletproof Coffee, Guayaki, Chosen Foods, Thrive Market, Designer Protein and Enagic

Torie is the best! She not only helped me lose 23 pounds she helped change the way my family eats. Torie is so knowledgeable and has so many great creative ideas for menu planning! She has given me some really good information my 9 year old who is gluten intolerant and needs to limit his sugar intake. I was stuck on what to feed him for lunches at school and snacks.
She was able to really give me some creative menu planning and fun snacks for him that he really enjoys!

Torie is very knowledgeable! She also creates awesome food and having fun while doing it. Which for me was the best thing because it has made my families health and lifestyle so much better while still being able to enjoy amazing food and having fun while doing it. She analyzed our current habits along with our lab work and then created an awesome lifestyle for us which has made us feel the best we have ever felt! For that I can not thank you enough!! And I still get to have a little wine😬.
