ABOUT CAFE RAW
In 2014 I attended a “raw food’ workshop. By the end of the day I knew I had found what I needed to take my nutrition up a notch. I was in love with Raw.
I immediately started experimenting with amazing raw food combinations and was smitten. I loved the clean lightness of eating raw, and I knew I wanted to share it with the world.
In March 2014, we opened Café Raw. I had no idea where it was positioned but I knew I wanted to share my passion. I also wanted to work with my special son Keaton. Despite his limitations he has been an integral part of Café Raw since inception. I just love working with him, he inspires me every single day. I also know that everything he produces for Café Raw has an extra dose of love added to it. He’s amazing. Through Café Raw, he has a purpose.
Since starting Café Raw I have transitioned to a fully plant-based diet and at 57 years old I still proudly compete in Powerlifting as a plant-powered athlete. Over years I have represented South Africa in 3 sports at World Championships/Challenge level, namely Powerlifting, body building and Trifitness. I’m passionate about health and take any opportunity to talk about it to anyone and everyone I meet. Not by chance, the latest dietary trend is ‘plant-based eating’. Not only is it one of the healthiest options around, it is not gimmicky, it’s sustainable and better for our world. As a nutritionist specialising in Plant-Based Lifestyles, I am here to guide you through your journey. Whether you want to transition to a 100% plant-based lifestyle or merely include more plant-based meals in your diet, I can assist by either consulting with you at my practice in Sandton, or online. Please see the services I offer in the services dropdown list or contact me for a personalised plan.
In 2023 I rekindled my passion for hiking and the outdoors. It was while doing the Leopard Trail 4 day hike that I had the inkling to do trail running. I came straight home, bought a pair of trail running shoes and entered 2 races. I then went on my first 2km training run. I knew immediately that I had found a new passion, trail running ticked all the boxes for me. This year I have also revisited my passion for photography, photographing the beautiful trails that I run on and hike.
Cafe Raw has evolved to include my passion for nature. Not only does it showcase healthy foods, but is now also a shopfront for any products that reflect the beautiful, natural world we live in. I have started to include some of my photography and in time hope to add new products from providers that share my passion for nature. If you have a product that fits this brief, please reach out, I would love to offer your bespoke handiwork to the world.
Yours in health
