What we're about

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 many new vegan friends. She then started her own Vegan Commissary Kitchen in Boca Raton called the Healthy Food Factory for entrepreneurs needing a kitchen.

The Raw Food Potlucks are often on a Sunday in West Delray Beach (Jog Rd / Lake Ida). Each person please bring an organic raw-vegan (no animal products) food dish to serve 20 or more people. Some examples of raw potluck dishes are, starting with the simplest of salads, chopped organic fruits, and sliced vegetables. Then more elaborate recipes, some "mock" raw dishes such as live "pizza," "lasagna," "granola," "raw crackers," "chocolate cake," etc. Feel free to bring guests to encourage them to eat raw food too!
