Hi there – I’m Catherine and I’m an ‘Almost Raw’ Vegan. I started this blog back in 2011 because I wanted to share my ‘Almost Raw’ Vegan approach to eating that sky-rocketed my energy, left me feeling better than I had EVER felt my entire life AND resulted in me shedding 20+ lbs!
All through my teens, my 20s, 30s and early into my 40s I always struggled with bouts of feeling depressed, lethargic, intolerant to certain foods, weight fluctuations and more. In a nutshell I had ups and downs and hated that my moods were not consistent. Some days I felt like a million bucks, other days I couldn’t even get out of bed.
In 2007 I (finally!) made the connection between the food that I ate and my mood. I hit rock bottom in 2007 (oh, and it happened at my birthday party!) and the connection was undeniable. After that day, I experimented with various diets and to make a long story short, I created an ‘Almost Raw’ Vegan approach, which for me was a god sent!
Eating ‘Almost Raw’ Vegan ended my lethargy, ended my food intolerances, ended my grumpiness, ended my weight fluctuations and left me lighter and feeling more positive & energized than EVER before. I also landed an amazing glowing complexion, brighter eyes, clarity of mind and a whole lot more.
I felt better than I had EVER felt in my entire life! Yup, my entire life!
I was so excited by my new found ‘Almost Raw’ Vegan approach that I just had to tell the world.
Even if I were to help just one person, that would be enough for me.
I simply felt compelled to share my story, my discovery, my experiences with others, in hopes that people like you would discover that an ‘Almost Raw’ Vegan diet is healing and energizing beyond words!
Fast forward to today…. and I am in complete aww about the number of kindred spirits I have met and helped over the years. I have helped hundreds of thousands to improve their health and wellness and I feel completely blessed and honoured that you have all invited me into your kitchen 😉
Ultimately….I’m here for one reason, and one reason only – I hope my experiences, my journey will inspire you to adopt an easy-peasy approach to plant-based eating, with my ‘Almost Raw’ Vegan approach, so you too can experience the same amazing benefits that I did ~ I want you to look & feel your best! ♡♡
