I have been a vegetarian for over 10 years. For many years I thought that was enough, but I still had poor digestion and I lacked energy. I was taking every kind of supplement imaginable. Something was wrong. At the invitation of a friend, I visited the Ann Wigmore Institute where I was introduced to the Living Foods Lifestyle.
I gradually began incorporating the Raw Lifestyle into my diet. I started drinking wheatgrass juice everyday and adding sprouts to my salads. I began to have more energy. I stopped taking supplements, I lost weight and my overall health improved. After trying the lifestyle for two years, I visited the Optimum Health Institute for a “tune up” where I increased my knowledge, understanding, experience and level of commitment. The results of my increased commitment have been very noticeable and people started asking me what they could do to integrate the Lifestyle into their diet. So I have developed workshops to help others start their journey to optimum health through eating living foods.
Upon my return from the Ann Wigmore Institute, I immediately shared this new lifestyle with my husband, Eddie. He was very receptive to the changes I wanted to make in our lives, and began embracing the lifestyle himself. As a matter of fact, it was Eddie who began experimenting with raw recipes (particularly sweets). So when I needed a chef for the Living Foods Workshop, Eddie was the natural choice. Since then, Eddie has created many tasty dishes as the family chef. His artistic eye, creativity and natural ability has led him to come into his own as a master raw/living foods chef.
Eddie and I, formerly had a raw restaurant in NYC called Raw Soul Catering and Food Service. We are now doing classes around the world. To keep in touch with us, go to www.rawsoul.com
