I am from Austin, TX but I am going to school in Sarasota, FL right now. I have been raw since October 2007. The most wonderful part of eating raw for me has been the immense spiritual opening I have experienced as a result. I have always been very conscious about what I put into my body because I am extremely sensitive to food and very aware of its effects on me and I feel that I have finally found a diet that works for me, all parts of me! Raw food has even enabled me to stop taking my thyroid medication! (I found out it was made from thyroid hormone from slaughtered pigs!) Eating raw has helped me to feel light and nimble and truly deepened my yoga practice. Yoga and raw food are my two main interests in life right now.
After this semester I cannot wait to move back to Austin with my mom! I am hoping to get a job at a juice bar/raw take out place down the street from my house. In the fall I am transferring to Naropa University in Boulder, CO for their traditional Eastern Arts program where I plan to major in Yoga and minor in alternative healing.
I teach yoga at my college three times a week and truly love sharing my practice and knowledge with others.
I am very grateful for this site! I get a lot of inspiration for recipes from here!
