Do you already know how much plant-based raw food can be as delicious as it is uplifting, transformative and highly satisfying? 


From my own experience, I can attest that this colourful, tasteful and creative cuisine has a huge potential to increase our appetite for natural nutrient-packed foods, to intensify our relation to nature as to improve our mind-body connection through yoga and sports abilities, to generate a renewed vitality while having a positive impact on a larger scale.

Let's go for the magical journey of plant-based raw food

where consciousness, beauty and creativity fuse

with delightful flavours,

health benefits and good energies.

As a raw food lover, my goal is to share my 7 years of experience and knowledge with every open-minded and forward-thinking person who is seeking a life based on genuine and sustainable well-being. The intensive training I provide is an opportunity to learn new food approaches and techniques and to experiment, in your every day life, the benefits of this life-style. Thus, we focus on the pleasure of creating and sharing original dishes inspired by the world's cuisine. My approach makes raw food simultaneously healthy and delicious, accessible, generous and easily digestible.

Canadian, I am myself a traveller, a photographer and an art-historian trained in Montreal, Paris and Lisbon. During my many years of academic life and professional activity, also in the field of photography (diplomacy milieu in Paris), I discovered juicing and vegan raw food in a critical moment of my health. I will never forget how much it improved my life on every level. It's by the end of 2012 that I started to intensively learn on the theoretical and practical aspects of this life-style, to experiment, to research and publish articles on the movement's history, pioneers and protagonists, to improve my skills in food photography and to connect with eco-and-health-concious-eating people all over the world. After two years of daily practice and learning, I built up, in 2014, the intensive training program on raw food. In 2015, I worked on the project of a raw food Academy for Portugal which won the first Prize in the Portuguese Climate Launchpad contest. Still, this ongoing project needs to be implemented. I also host people from around the world, in French, English or Portuguese for juicing programs, plant-based healthy gourmet cuisine and the meaningful conviviality around it all.

 Raw food is an amazing experience of delicious and highly vibrant textures, tastes and colours that you can easily add to your life. 

With this winning combination of will, sensitivity and knowledge, we can share and co-create immensely!
