About Margaux


Welcome to your WholeLiving HQ, I’m Margaux Drake!

Outside of running this WholeLiving kingdom for you, I’m WOTV 4 Women’s (ABC) Healthy Eats crew member, a regular healthy lifestyle contributor on eightWest WOOD TV8 (NBC) and I founded and lead two large virtual health and wellness communities called FUEL for weight loss, energy, healthy aging and FUEL+ for athletes.

Why did I create this site? Because I am passionate about YOU.


To educate, inspire and empower people to improve their bodies, homes and lives one little baby step or one giant step at a time. To help others find the ultimate in health and well being. To pour greatness into others so they can truly LIVE their lives like they mean it, EVERYDAY and have fun while doing it in style. In the process, these people will spark others to do the same and just like tossing a stone into water, the ripples will have a global reach.

Think of MargauxDrake.com as a place where you can come for a reprieve, a deep breath, a momentary pause to soak up inspiration, information and empowerment. A refueling station for thoughts, ideas and creativity for a whole foods, plant STRONG diet, home, garden, fitness and personal development. A venue for all things that make up a life of hip, healthy WholeLiving.

Join the WholeLiving community and the conversation where we can all share ideas daily on my Facebook page: Margaux Drake.


I’ve THRIVED on a whole food diet for over 23 years. I brought into the world three healthy and beautiful children, inside and out, Stevie, Ellie and Teddy. I’ve completed three Ironman triathlons, finished many 1/2 Ironman races, ultra marathons, marathons, sprint distance triathlons and every other running race you can imagine all while fueling my engine with a whole foods, plant STRONG diet. I’m gluten-free too and have never felt better.

I’m a certified chef, an Advanced Master Gardener, Master Naturalist and I have owned my own interior design consultancy for over 16 years. I take healthy lifestyle information and serve it up in a way that that makes life BEAUTIFUL and ABUNDANT. The ideal environment is profoundly inspiring and empowers us to give our best to the world. Set yourself up for success. If it has to do with health, wellness, home, garden, clean cuisine or fitness and putting it all together into an EXCEPTIONAL LIFE, I’m your girl.

I’d also like to introduce you to my husband, the father to our three wonderful children, my business partner, training buddy, chief engineer and the guy who makes all of my crazy ideas come to life, Steve Drake. Without him, much of what you see here would not exist. Together, we make a DANG good team.


Meet my husband, Steve.


I’ve inspired countless people to take control of their lives. I’ve poured my heart into this special place for YOU, in hopes that it educates, inspires and empowers you to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE. You are POWERFUL BEYOND MEASURE. Just imagine what you can do.
