MEET THE CHEF
Tommy Nicholas is a health entrepreneur on a quest to help improve the vitality of people’s lives through blending, raw foods, healthy products and most importantly healthy eating and living.
Tommy is a blending expert, raw food & fitness enthusiast, TV personality, Vitamix demonstrator extraordinaire, green smoothie lover, blogger, National Sales Manager and creator of the popular health & wellness brand ‘Raw Blend – a healthy mix for life.’ Tommy has been using and demonstrating Vitamix and health products since he was 13 years of age, trained in both the UK and USA – he understands blending and the importance of eating raw foods.
Tommy is son to Tom Nicholas, who first bought Vitamix to Australian shores nearly 20 years ago under the business ‘Total Nutrition Center.’ Growing up, Tommy enjoyed helping out working in the family business but it was not until 2007 that he gained a keen interest for Vitamix & healthy living and subsequently guided the business to where it is today. In May 2012 ‘Total Nutrition Center’ changed its name to ‘Raw Blend’ and under Tommy’s new direction Raw Blend has quickly grown into a recognized health & wellness brand.
‘A raw food diet can dramatically increase your nutrient intake, your energy level and help you lose or maintain an ideal weight. Personally, raw foods make me feel better, look better and I have loads more energy to get me through my action packed day!’ says Tommy Nicholas of Raw Blend.
As Tommy’s quest continues he is now focused more than ever on growing ‘Raw Blend – a healthy mix for life’ into an iconic Australian health & wellness lifestyle brand.
