My love for food led me to teaching and then on to the stage. I decided that I will begin to share with people the gift of living foods. And not just for the love of food, but mainly for the love of the body. Once you feel the positive attributes that are provided by the organic, live, unprocessed food, there is little turning back. When you see all those great physical qualities that you had in childhood and can still keep in adulthood, then choose fresh, organic food becomes your priority.

If you would ask me, what my favourite food is at this particular moment, my answer would most definitely be figs. Despite being able to enjoy dry figs all year around, there is nothing like enjoying fresh ones, which nature produces at the end of a summer. They are magnificent produce due to their sweet taste with a soft pulp and fine peel. Crunchy seeds just melts in your mouth and are perfect completion of a texture. To choose the figs with high amount of antioxidants, pick the ripe figs with a nice, fresh aroma.


They totally remind me of my childhood, as back in the days my father would go and pick the freshest figs from the farmers market and I would fight with my brother who would get them first. If my mother got a hold of them, before me and my brother ate them all, she would prepare a delicious almond and fig pie. This time it was my turn, so I prepared one my way and brought her my version of traditional almond and fig pie, which we both enjoyed dearly.

So I’m thinking.., “I deserve a treat…a cake….and a big one too.” Food is my biggest reward. My admiration and desire for colors and tastes is too great and impossible to neglect. I have no doubt that if I were to give up gourmet foods, the resulting hunger would spiral me into an irreversible depression. This is why I take culinary moments, especially involving cake, and turn them into physical and emotional celebrations.

Browsing through my memory on what used to be my priorities in life and comparing them to my current lifestyle, I quickly find even more reasons for celebration. My life used to be all about getting the right job, surrounding myself with successful people and being at every important event there was. Despite being successful in all of the above endeavors I found myself driving with my car back home thinking, “Why do I still feel so empty?”. My curious and somewhat stubborn personality wouldn’t rest until I fully explored the questions of what would truly make me happy. It took some time but I found the answers, all of those being in healthy lifestyle with vegan and raw foods. Despite being where I am right now, I still believe my youth was necessary for me to grow and looking back I would have not changed a thing. However, searching for happiness in nightlife, clubbing and attaching importance to ego-based matters did not fulfill my needs for internal happiness. It certainly gave me a focus on myself which prompted me to explore my needs in great depth. This doesn’t mean I became isolated, it just means I now know how to take time for myself and truly spend it in peace and tranquility. I learned how to appreciate nature, observe and enjoy the scents of cherries, mangoes, peaches, apricots, passion fruit and all other wonderful fruits of nature. They empower me to feel youthful, confident, wholly and most importantly they keep me healthy. I now take time when driving with my car to observe nature, fields of greens, valleys of grasses which calms me and leaves me with feeling of content and allows me to see the true essence of nature’s beauty. With my passion for healthy vegan and raw food I have touched and changed some people’s lives, as well as my own. I spend a good portion of time in day thinking about new gourmet – stylish looking recipes that would bring intrigue and interest in people’s lives so they would too join me on the journey of the eco and animal friendly lifestyle of healthy foods.
