I'm a Gourmet Raw Food Chef who has a practical and fun approach to living a vegan raw food lifestyle. Fallen to ill health and at my wit's end with western medicine, I decided to give something new a try - a raw food diet. I decided to try it for just 30 days, but I was amazed at my immediate health improvement. I was hooked! Raised in a traditional Italian family, raw food or even a vegan diet was unheard of! Yet now, 10 years after my illness, I'm teaching and doing what I love the most - the powers of self-healing through food. My desire is to teach you, through living- vegan foods, to become your own greatest doctor and to love your body and your own individual nature. I offer advice on getting started, tools that are needed, cleansing for weight loss and maintenance, traveling and maintaining your new lifestyle, stocking your pantry, juicing, and everyone’s favorite, my amazing guilt-free dessert recipes!
