- About Me
Thanks for visiting, it's great to connect with others who are on this journey! My name is Maureen and I'm a Raw Chef who has been mostly raw and vegan for 13 years and a vegetarian for more than 18 years - 100% raw, 95% of the time. Since my relationship with raw and living foods began I have experienced many health benefits. But my turning point was when I began drinking a blender full of Green Smoothie each day and found the energy I was missing, now I love Green Smoothies and never miss a day!
Since 2009 I have been teaching "Uncooking" Classes and Green Smoothie Workshops. I started holding the only monthly Raw Vegan Potluck in Abbotsford shortly after moving there to bring the community together, and have organized and run 3 Green Smoothie Challenges so far! 2011 was a busy year: with catered Workplace Luncheon Presentations for people to "taste and learn" about raw living foods; Live Raw Food Demos in health stores; and having my first ebook available online. During 2012 my second ebook was released and made available online. In 2011 I closed my other business, EarthAnimals Pet Services, where for 7 years I worked with and learned from the most amazing animals - how lucky am I!
What I eat now has been slowly evolving towards lighter foods (more greens, veggies, fruits) with less emphasis on slow digesting foods (nuts, seeds and complicated raw recipes). I've been paying close attention to how my body reacts, responds, recovers, regenerates - and so far we are in agreement! Once again this journey with living foods is opening me to new ways to be - and I love that the choice is mine! I started recording a daily journal of what I eat, calling it My Daily Eats. You can find it listed as one of the tabs at the top of this blog - let me know if it is helpful to you.
What fills me with hope and opens me to possibilities?
- sharing the benefits of the raw and living foods lifestyle with others
- communing and working with animals, and nature, and the Earth
- opening inner doorways with Sound & Energy Healing (Tibetan Bowls and Jin Shin)
- Find whatever "lights you up". . . and Just Do It!
