It is DAY 8 of the "Raw Food Recipes" series and I delighted to introduce you to the incredible Sheleana Breakell and Caleb Jennings from the Young and Raw blog. Where do I start describing this dynamic duo? Young and Raw, Strong and Open, Wise and Humble, Generous and Caring. Yep! That just about says it all. Well... not quite.
So, who are these two? Sheleana and Caleb met in Vancouver Canada, and after talking with Preet Marwaha from Organic Lives, who suggested they adopt a raw vegan lifestyle in order to eradicate Sheleana's chronic health problems, successfully transformed their lives with the power of live foods.
On a raw foods diet, Sheleana lost 45lbs, healed her body of infertility, re-balanced her energy from extreme adrenal fatigue, reversed a hormonal imbalance that was threatening her life, and restored her body to optimum health. She and Caleb now dedicate their lives to teaching others how to do the same.
They created Young and Raw as "a place to share inspiration and promote natural living through a high raw, plant based lifestyle." On it you can find fantastic informative blogs about health and nutrition, raw beauty recipes, and delicious raw and vegan recipes. Some of my favorites include the raw vegan caesar salad, chunky raw berry energy cookies, raw vegan sunflower veggie burgers, and the maca-almond martinis.
These raw vegan crispy vegetable crackers they are sharing today are RAWmazing! We are already on our third batch, and we have been eating them as snacks every day. They are super easy to make and are gluten free, dairy free, egg free, nut free, and soy free. Most importantly, they are loaded with nutrients and live enzymes and are absolutely delicious.
Intimidated by raw? Caleb and Sheleana have created a three month raw food program for newbies called How To Go Raw, Not Crazy, which aims to demystify the raw foods world and offer a compassionate, supportive weight loss program with the tools to succeed. Ali, their Resident Holistic Nutritionist is available for support. She has been 100% plant based for over seven years and 100% raw for five years. The program includes twelve weeks of meal plans, a private student community monitored daily by Ali, weekly affirmations, emotional support, and more. They are currently looking for student testers, who receive 50% off the registration fees. So send them an email if you want in!
Caleb and Sheleana share a deep desire to teach and inspire others to have a deeper personal awareness about food, in the quest for a more sustainable relationship with their food and planet. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite healthy food blogs; and their rapidly growing Facebook page is a fantastic place to meet and learn about raw foods, health, and sustainability. Trust me, check out Caleb and Sheleana and you will fall in love just like I have.
Caleb and Sheleana, thank you for participating in this event. You ignite my passion for all things young and raw....
