My name is Catherine, I live in Ottawa, Ontario - the beautiful National Capital of Canada – and I’m an “Almost Raw” Vegan!
Changes to my diet started as a result of My Reasons for Eating Almost Raw Vegan which inspired my interest in learning more about nutrition for my own health & wellness. And since then, my thirst to learn more has grown exponentially in the past few years.
As a result, I am now a book-aholic, web-surfing-aholic, blog-aholic and creative-edibles-aholic and soon-to-be ebook author for anything plant based eating related!
You will often find me browsing the latest books online and in bookstores, surfing the web or out talking to like minded plant based guru’s to learn as much as I can about the effects of diet on our mind, body & soul.
I just love (LOVE) to create new easy peasy edibles that incorporate all that I’ve learned!! Put it all together with my love for sharing my new found discoveries and that brings us to AlmostRawVegan.com as well as my Facebook & Twitter pages!
I attended Living Light Culinary Institute, the world’s premier organic raw vegan chef training school. They have a variety of amazing courses/certifications for raw food chef wannabes like me. I enjoyed their FUNdamentals training in 2012.
I also completed eCornell University’s Certificate in Plant Based Nutrition. You may have heard of Dr. T. Colin Campbell, he has a best selling book, The China Study. If you haven’t already read his book, I highly recommend it – it will give you a new perspective on the impacts of diet and nutrition that I’m sure will change your life. The Certificate in Plant Based Nutrition program at eCornell incorporates the best of Dr. Campbell’s work, as well as the latest information from leading experts in the field.
