Brigitte’s raw vegan adventure began in early 2013, when she decided to take her life and health into her own hands and eliminate all animal products from her diet. Within a year, she lost 50 pounds and made more than 50 new friends. She then started her own Vegan Commissary Kitchen for entrepreneurs needing a Commercial Kitchen for use by the hour, week or month with an affordable plan for start-up food entrepreneurs or those already established. Her Commercial Kitchen is in Boca Raton and for inquiries, contact 561-394-7466 or go the the website www.HealthyFoodFactory.com.
