About Katie Wells
Hi, I’m Katie, the “Wellness Mama” and my goal is to help other families live more naturally through practical tips, real food recipes, natural beauty and cleaning tutorials, natural remedies and more.
Why Wellness Mama?
It all started for me almost a decade ago when my first son was born. I was sitting in the doctors office at my follow up visit and I read in a magazine that was sitting on the side table that:
..For the first time in centuries, the current generation of children will have a shorter life expectancy than their parents…
That hit me like a ton of bricks. I was holding my perfect newborn and reading about how his generation would face higher rates of cancer, heart disease, autoimmune disease and other many other health problems.
That day, my life changed and I decided to work to change that statistic. It’s been a long journey for me, through four more pregnancies, finding out that I have a thyroid disease and working to find answers, and completely changing my family’s lifestyle from eating pasta and using chemical cleaners to real food and natural homemade products.
My goal is to help make the transition to healthy eating easier for you than it has been for me, and to share my own journey (since we’re always learning and growing).
In the Wellness Mama Cookbook and at WellenssMama.com you’ll find all of my best real food recipes, natural living and cleaning tutorials, beauty recipes and health hacks with natural ingredients, natural remedies, and so much more.

With six kids, a popular blog, and no free time, Katie Wells, knows firsthand how difficult it is to cook a healthy, homemade dinner every night. Faced with her own health challenges, and also concerned about the frightening statistics on the future health of her children’s generation, Katie began to evaluate the foods she was eating and feeding to her family. She became determined to find a way to create and serve meals that were wholesome, easy to prepare, budget-friendly, and family approved.
The recipes and practical advice Katie offers in The Wellness Mama Cookbook will help you eliminate processed foods and move toward more healthy, home-cooked meals that are easily prepared—most in thirty minutes or less.

Recipes include Sesame Chicken with Sugar Snap Peas, Sweet Potato Crusted Quiche Lorraine, Beef and Zucchini Stir Fry, and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, as well as recipes for bone broths, fermented foods, and super food drinks and smoothies. Katie also shares pantry-stocking advice, two weeks of meal plans for at home and on-the-go, shopping lists, and more. This is the ultimate cookbook that readers need to incorporate healthy eating knowledge into their daily practices.
