Why Raw Food?

After being diagnosed with Lupus 3 years ago, I found remission in nutrition and today am feeling great.

Have you ever fasted? If so, what kind of fast? How often?

Yes, I have done a lemon, water, maple syrup, cayenne pepper fast for 10 days.

What do you believe are the miracles of raw food? What is your favorite raw food dish?

I understand that the highest quality nutrition is found in raw food, organically and locally grown. I am living testament to the power of following this type of diet. I love a raw shredded brussel sprout broccoli slaw salad that I concocted.

How do you think peace in the world is affected by health and well being?

We know that all types of stress adversely affect our digestion and ability to absorb and process the foods we eat. Consuming our meals in a thoughtful, sympathetic, peaceful way, surrounded by family and friends can only lead to clearer thought and wellbeing.


I'm currently enrolled in the Nutrition Consultant program at Bauman College and have been following a whole food, plant-based diet for nearly 3 years.
