Rae Ehly

Hey hi! My name is Rae Ehly and I'm a health & wellness advocate who finds joy in all things Matcha, fitness and women's health. I use my Instagram to geek out on all of my favorite non-toxic products, fitness classes, new adventures and inspirations; and I use my blog to document my experiences in the KC health & wellness community, write about topics that I believe will motivate and benefit others, and provide paleo & vegan recipes. Follow along with me (@raeehly or wholehearted.com) if you like tea and appreciate sunrises.


To get to know Rae a little better, we asked her a few questions.

What's your favorite coffee shop (and drink)? Definitely Unbakery & Juicery! I'm a big fan of their golden latte. I nix the honey and ask for almond milk! (not a coffee drinker - tea and turmeric lattes all the way!)

If you could live in any Kansas City neighborhood, which one would you choose? The heart of Brookside. I grew up near Loose Park and made so many memories while growing up in the neighborhood. Whenever I'm in the area, I seriously get the butterflies - so homey, cozy and full of character. I'm convinced that I'll raise a family in BKS one day!

You have a Sunday to yourself. Where do you spend it? THIS is the best question ever. I love Sundays, and the best way to spend one (in my opinion) is by waking up early and going to a spin or HITT class, dropping by Hi Hat or Unbakery for a tea, and spending the rest of it in the KITCHEN - cooking, dancing, drinking tea and recipe developing. Also- time spent OUTSIDE.

If you could take one Kansas City restaurant/bakery/cafe with you to a deserted island, which one would you choose? Unbakery & Juicery, no doubt. I would be nourished, energized, sustained and taken care of - physically, emotionally and mentally.
