023: Eat Clean and Shop Smart at Costco Wholesale with iFOODreal.com’s Olena Osipov

Olena Osipov is the talent behind the respected blog ifoodreal.com. She is a mom, feeding her family delicious clean eating recipes. It is not weird, people. It is real food. The way humans are supposed to eat.

Olena grew up in Ukraine, immigrated to Canada, and is now blessed to call Vancouver, BC her new home. What’s not to like?! 

“I started iFOODreal in 2012 after being fired from a job I hated. Yep, good girls get fired too. I gained a passion for fitness and clean eating after having my 2nd child in 2011. “Why not turn my passion into business?!” 

“OK, look. Here is the deal. Clean eating is not a diet, it is a lifestyle. I don’t believe in any diets as they don’t work. In fact, I eat clean about 80%. Every Monday I post what I ate on a weekend. Hope it helps to see I’m not perfect.”
