Elaina Love



Hi, my name is Elaina Love and I have been teaching raw food courses and giving talks worldwide since 1998.  I worked as a Chef/Instructor at the renowned Living Light Culinary Arts Institute from 2000-2010 before moving on to the creation of Pure Joy Culinary Academy in 2010.

I have authored 3 books (in addition to the Academy Manuals which is like 4 books combined) and 3 DVD’s.  And I am the proud creator of the Amazing Nut Milk Bag which is sold and used worldwide as an integral kitchen tool for raw foodies, vegans and anyone wishing to make better food choices. Currently, I travel the world teaching, but when not traveling, I reside in Tucson, Arizona.

My teaching and support empowers people to lose weight and gain energy by making positive lifestyle choices and incorporating more living, raw food into their diet.




My Raw Foods Chef Certification courses in Bali are highly sought after, attracting students from across the globe.

As they say, my raw energy and bright smile are infectious!  My zeal for life and healthy living are an undeniable driving force, which shines through in my teaching style.  It’s also what has led me to create such a thorough curriculum for my students, encompassing food prep and styling, low glycemic alternatives, holistic health and nutrition, detoxification, and much more!
