To My Healthiest Self.
to fulfill your healthiest potential.I created the Rawception blog to share my delicious and healing recipes.
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.
