The Raw Food Kitchen came about when Amanda battled systemic candida for over 5+ years, which left her a sick, bloated, insomniac shell of her former self. Realizing conventional medicine was not helping her (in fact was making her even more unwell) she started out on a search for a true path to wellness. It was during this time she discovered the raw foods philosophy. Within two months of going raw she had healed herself of her health condition.

Now she is sharing the power of a raw food diet by teaching and inspiring others to help heal their bodies, learning what it means to feel truly nourished, gain more energy and vitality and change the way we think about the word "diet".
