What They’re About

Why Plant-Based & How to Get Started

Our courses and programs are for anyone on their plant-based journey. Whether you’re a beginner, somewhat experienced, or simply want to refine your already plant-based approach. 

Nutritional Support For Cancer Survivorship & Chronic Disease

We have seen the healthcare system disappoint many patients with a lack of nutritional support for cancer and chronic disease. We’re here to guide you through this journey and teach you the healing power of whole foods which complement traditional therapies.

Evidence-Based Education From a Registered Dietitian

Conflicting nutrition information leads to overwhelm — it’s important we declutter fact from fiction. Wholesome abides by an evidence-based nutrition approach, taught by a registered dietitian board certified in oncology nutrition.

Take charge of your health, and become a #wholefoodchampion.

“With Alison, there was no pressure. She gave us recipes and ideas on what we could do that were realistic for us. I noticed I started feeling better, the chemo treatments weren’t as bad. Alison’s recipes and tools also gave my family and caregivers something they could help with to make me feel better. As a result, my whole family is eating better and we all feel healthier. For us, this has become a long-term lifestyle.”

Jim Luzinger, Stage 4 Colon Cancer

“I love Alison’s teaching style. She gives you the information, but also explains why it’s important and how to implement it. She explains things in a way that’s easy to understand. She does not make you feel bad at all if you have a slip-up. Whatever lifestyle you choose, she’s there to guide and help. After implementing the plant-based diet I definitely felt better. My joints felt better, more clarity, less brain fog, better energy. I truly believe the better you can feed your body, the better you can heal.”

Daina Boppre, Stage 4 Breast Cancer, Rheumatoid Arthritis 

“Alison is just wonderful. She doesn’t judge. She just offers you wonderful information and everything is evidence-based. She had reasons for everything she shared, she could show me why it was a good idea and how I could start doing it. I was 243 pounds when we started and now I weigh 156. Using food as medicine has helped me feel better, I can be more active, and I enjoy being active now. Whether you’re sick or not, this is just a good idea.”

Kathy Sneider, Metaplastic Breast Cancer

Meet Alison, Your Cancer Dietitian

Hey! I’m Alison, a cancer thriver and registered dietitian board certified in oncology nutrition. My family and I are, unfortunately, not strangers to cancer and chronic illness. 

After cancer burdened my family for generations and my own battle with infertility due to PCOS followed by my own breast cancer diagnosis, I set out to use my professional and personal experience to change the lives of my family. 

After tremendous successes with diet and lifestyle changes in my own life and family members, I knew I needed to help more people. Which led me to create Wholesome.

Today, I empower individuals after a cancer diagnosis to find where nourishment and joy uniquely meet on their own Wholesome journey using plant-based nutrition and lifestyle medicine. 

I truly believe that nutrition is a powerful tool to complement traditional cancer therapies - and research agrees too! Food as medicine can (and should) be simple. Seeing my clients empowered with the knowledge, tools and resources they need to live happier, healthier lives fuels my incredible passion in the fight against cancer.
