About Priscilla Soler

My name is Priscilla and I'm half Mexican and half Canadian. I live in Montreal where I go to college. My vegan path started  3 years ago, after suffering of an eating disorder. I believe God has healed me and my life changed completely. By changing my eating habits and appreciating not just myself but everything around me, I finally saw how beautiful, unique and special life is. After 2 years of following a raw vegan lifestyle, I read the China Study AND tHE 80/10/10 diet and started eating a low fat mostly raw diet. It's been a year and I never felt better! I have so much energy and the benefits are beyond. I created my blog a few months after I changed my diet to low fat, so pretty much all my recipes are free of oils, nuts, seeds or gourmet ingredients like agave and cacao. I think these are super healthy and tasty recipes that focus on what a real raw food diet should look like, the natural whole state of each and every food, without adding tons of refined ingredients. To know more about me you can go to my website: www.gastrawnomica.com where I share my recipes and a little bit about my life.
