Annette Pelc Certified Raw Chef

Since the early 1980’s, I have tried to be conscious of my food choices. For the most part, my diet has consisted of fruits and vegetables along with a little meat. About a year ago, I went on a twenty-one day Master Cleanse fast and lost fifteen pounds in the process. After the cleanse I began to eat from a raw food diet plan. This journey has been great, as I feel totally energetic and full of life. Since raw foods are from the earth and in their natural state we are providing our body with the highest amounts of nutrition, as well as being environmentally friendly. These foods are additionally filled with their own enzymes which help to aid effective digestion, providing a rich nutritional resource for the body. I welcome you to join me on this wonderful journey into raw life food eating and all of its diversity. In October 2008, I completed Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 Raw Chef Certification classes at Raw Gourmets International in Chicago, IL with Chef Mehmet AK. I look forward to working with you.
