In 2005 I weighed 320 pounds and suffered from many ailments. I went raw/vegan immediately felt that I’d found the fountain of youth. As a working/single mom, I had to organize my pantry to quickly prep raw meals. I began sharing my raw systems with others fighting disease, and teaching became the most important work of my life.

Intro to Raw Food & the Raw Kitchen Magician
I met Joannie in March of 2005. She is a dream teacher and an absolute talent in the raw food world.Not only does her huge heart and generous spirit captivate you, but after watching the ease with which she prepares delicious raw foods, you are convinced you can do the same thing at home. I have literally seen students bloom from their enthusiasm and hope for better health, a slimmer figure, more radiant levels of energy.

I’d been about 85% raw for over fifteen years when I met Joan and saw her kitchen. I knew immediately that Joan was on to something special – organization was critical. If I had been organized like Joan, I could easily have been 100% raw. The organization was the missing link between the desire to be raw and the ability to live that way.
I am a consultant with a hectic travel schedule.While I have been healed through a raw-food lifestyle, it remained a challenge in my busy life. With Joan’s help I reorganized my kitchen and focused on preparing for travel and entertaining at home. My dream of a raw lifestyle finally transformed into reality.Her classes gave me what I needed to simplify prep and timing of meals. The simplicity of what she offers made it possible to translate this to colleagues, friends and family.
Joan’s “no-dogma” approach helps people incorporate RAW into their lives at a level that works for them.Joan’s only objective is to help people determine, meet and sustain their goals for a healthier lifestyle. Joan’s approach is focused on making health easy through incredible organization, creativity and fantastic food.There is no person like Joan in the RAW industry and no system exists like what she’s created.
Joan took the whole of raw food and turned it into a footnote.
I have attended many of Joan’s raw-food lifestyle classes over the last few years. Joan is as knowledgeable, realistic and entertaining as she is compassionate and innovative. I have witnessed her motivate and empower people who have been struggling for years with issues around the topics of dis-ease, weight control and emotional imbalance to mention just a few.The content she has developed cannot be outdone.

I hate raw food and organic food too – food with chemicals tastes better. I miss eating the same food at the same time with my mom. I want a regular mom who cooks dinner every night. But I love that I can get my arms around my mom’s waist when I hug her. And I love that we wrestle at night after dinner. But I really, really hate that men are looking at my mom now. She’s my mom, MY MOM!
