Self Care is not Selfish.

Hi, I'm Nicolle Kate. I'm a certified health coach from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition where I studied over one hundred dietary theories. I'm also a certified raw vegan chef and I have instructed culinary students from around the world how to craft plant based cuisine and pastry at the Matthew Kenney Culinary Academy. 

After experienceing many life transformations of my own over the years and seeking guidance to manifest my goals, I can relate to those I coach. For the past decade I have used whole foods, superfoods, and super-herbs to developed my 3-step a day, way of life. I have achieved the energy I need in the body I want. And I don't want to look or feel any other way.


I've shared a bunch of recipes and health tips on my blog to show how I got my youthful energy back.I found out it wasn’t about my age or size, but about feeling vibrant energy, refreshing my mental clarity, and boosting my immunity.

My passion is empowering and guiding women in their fifties, to their ideal weight and youthful energy through my health coaching programs. I love sharing Rawception’s energy food recipes and wellness wisdom in my e-book series to guide you to fulfill your healthiest potential.I created the Rawception blog to share my delicious and healing recipes.


These recipes use whole food as fuel and medicine. I hope to inspire you to get passionate about cooking delicious real food.

Before attending culinary school and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I pursued long careers in both fashion and advertising. I understood well the power of image, external beauty, and youth. My ambition to create beautiful images, while once exciting, eventually felt vacant, like junk food devoid of nutrition. I wanted more depth and meaning in my work. With that paradigm shift came the awareness that I had been working backward. Now, I focus my life and work from the inside-out. 

My journey to my healthiest self.

Had my life just been on autopilot? Why were there so many disconnects happening all at once? What wasn't I payed attention to? 

So I turned my focus to my overall wellness. I needed to upgrade my diet, cleanse my body and mind, generate my youthful energy, enthusiasm and sparkle; which was always the essense of me. After all, I was 48 then, and back in the dating world after a long marriage. I wanted to practice yoga and meditation to connect wth my genuine self and inner divinity. But for real, not just talk about it. 

It was time to use my passion for nutrition and the culinary arts as a profession.

I attended both culinary school and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I quickly became a chef instructor at an international raw vegan culinary academy and started my holistic health coaching practice.


I was brought up in the midwest in the 1960's on the standard American diet of meat-and-potato style home-cooked meals. Dinner always left me feeling sluggish and heavy but I didn't know there was any other way to nourish my body.

So I ate my way somewhat blindly through the early part of my life. In my twenties and thirties through marriage and children, I became concerned about my family’s health. So I began to buy organic produce, made my own baby food and taught myself how to upgrade traditional recipes to healthier versions.

Soon after my two children left for college, my marriage of 26 years fell apart, my fashion career became unfulfilling and soul-less, and my diet needed an overhaul to give me back my original vitality and aliveness. I also felt a unrelenting pull toward expressing my authentic self and finding a true calling.
