The Raw Food Kitchen came about when Amanda battled a five year health condition which left her a sick, bloated, depressed, insomniac shell of her former self.

Realising conventional medicine was not helping her (in fact was making her even more unwell) she started out on a search for a true path to wellness. It was on one of these search and discover moments she came across the raw foods philosophy.

Within two months of going raw she has healed herself of her chronic health issues, and discovered her passion.

Now she is sharing the power of raw by teaching and inspiring others to help heal their bodies, learn what it means to feel truly nourished, gain more energy and vitality and change the way we think about the word “diet”.

Amanda holds regular raw food classes, retreats, events and transformational online programs, and has completed four e-books.

Loads of yummy raw recipes can be found on the website
