Andrea and Angelisa have crafted a unique weekend to immerse yourself into the Whole30 lifestyle while intimately experiencing the beauty, nature and culture of Taos, New Mexico.
After meeting the summer of 2017, Angelisa hosted Andrea and her daughter on their first stand-up paddle boarding and hiking tour within the scenic Rio Grande Del Norte National Monument and it sparked a friendship and partnership to marry the things they love: nutrition and playing in the outdoors!
It thus seemed natural for them to cultivate a collaborative retreat within the artisan town of Taos. Angelisa’s travel company, Heritage Inspirations, is a partner with El Monte Sagrado Resort an exquisite adobe resort nestled just off Kit Carson less than half a mile away from the town plaza.
Together, they invite you to treat yourself to an inspirational luxurious weekend, enjoying the great outdoors. With Andrea’s Whole30 expertise and with Angelisa’s connection to El Monte Sagrado Resort and Taos tourism, they have put together this Whole30 inspired weekend of workshops, dining experiences, and activities.
Andrea Overturf, a local Taosena who now lives in Dallas, has planned a two-part Whole30 Workshop for those who are already Whole30 alumni and those who are excited to learn more about this remarkable program.
Part One Basics, guidelines, and intention of the program, followed by a Q+A session.
Part Two will include practical tips, hacks, and recipes, including a Sips and Dips demo. This demo shows you how to create dressings/dips to add major flavor to your Whole30 meals. In addition, you will also enjoy fruit infused sparkling water “mocktails” – all Whole30 friendly, of course!
Each workshops will include giveaway packages to be raffled off! You will also take home an exclusive Whole30 Swag Bag filled with products, coupons, and more from Whole30 Approved brands!
Plus, join Angelisa on the trail within one of the most scenic geological rift zones with a hike above North America’s third longest river, the Rio Grande. You will be amazed at the diversity of the high desert ecosystem, on our 2.4-mile moderate hike to an expansive overlook. You will also be able to experience Heritage Inspirations Taos Artisan Walking Tour to learn more about the ethereal light and color that attracted so many artisans to this region.
At the end of this weekend, you’ll not only walk away feeling like you’ve experienced Taos with a true insider point of view, but you’ll also carry the tools you need to launch your food freedom journey.

“I’ve personally experienced how this program can restore your health, habits, and relationship with food! Using Whole30 principles, you can create a plan that works for your lifestyle and goals. You’ll be amazed with what can be accomplished by committing to 30 days of reconnecting with your body and changing the food on your plate!”
