Are you wondering how and why I got to become a professional raw food chef & writer?

You can read the long story by clicking right here.

Many years ago while studying to become a professional journalist, I was diagnosed with chronic glandular fever. The only way for me to regain my health was by avoiding stress (quite difficult if you’re constantly working to a deadline) and by completely changing my diet and lifestyle.

I started by cutting refined sugars, grains and dairy products from my diet, and gradually transitioned to a primarily plant-based lifestyle. It was during this search for optimal health that I discovered raw food. Fresh fruits and vegetables helped me to increase my energy levels and finally reclaim my health.

Are you ready to get more energy & glowing skin?
