A Health Coach is a supportive mentor and wellness authority who works with clients to help them feel their best through food and lifestyle changes. Instead of prescribing one diet or way of exercising, Health Coaches tailor individualized wellness programs to meet their clients' needs.

Relationships, exercise, career, and spirituality are just as important to your health as the food you eat. Health Coaches understand this and take a holistic approach to supporting the whole person. Find out how health coaching stacks up against other health and wellness jobs.

So -- Why RAW???

SO . . .

R A W?


When people see the change in me, they always ask, "So, how'd you do it?"   Without giving them a dissertation on how I've accomplished Rejuvenation And Wellness, I just give them my pat answer which is, "I changed the way I eat.  I don't eat any wheat,  soy,  dairy, legumes, processed sugar and hardy any alcohol.  I only eat  whole foods".   And then I say, "oh yeah -- AND I DON'T COOK IT EITHER!!"  So, why R A W??  Well, mainly because that's 85% of how I choose to eat my food.  And secondly -- because ever since I started eating raw, I've felt Rejuvenated which led me to Wellness.  It's amazing how much you can do with RAW food!  I never feel deprived and hopefully, if you follow me on this journey, you will not feel deprived either.
Now - I've learned to make almost everything in a RAW state and there's still things and techniques I need to master.  I make cheeses out of nuts; pasta out of zucchini (or kelp noodles or sweet potatoes, carrots and beets) and desserts out of wonderful RAW ingredients.  I will be sharing a lot of this information with you.

When I do cook or bake -- I have to do it gluten free, dairy free, soy free and animal free to follow the diets of my daughters.  Which daughter doesn't eat meat -- which one does eat meat.  If meat is involved, I go back and follow the concepts of the Paleo Diet.   Once again -- I will be sharing wonderful website and recipes with you.
What's really funny is that I rarely "cook" anymore.  I "uncook".  A phrase I borrowed from Eva Rawpossa (  So, the other day when I made my daughters some soup on the stove -- I forgot how "hot" things really get and when I took the lid off the pot -- I burned myself.  And then when I put that hot lid on the stove -- I forgot the burners were hot and I burned myself again!!  Which only goes to prove that eating RAW is not only healthier for you, but less dangerous as well!!
