TJ and I have always had a passion for health and the human body, but it wasn’t until we started our own family that we really dove into researching and experimenting with different ways of eating that would support our active lifestyle and raise healthy children.
We have four wild and free children who love to join us on runs, hikes, mountain bikes, paddle boards, and scale rocks with us (or just be nestled in a baby sling to me, depending on how old they are!). We all load up as a family to crew TJ when he runs his ultra endurance trail races and we travel this beautiful planet in search of new adventures.
Our lifestyle needed fuel that allowed us to have abundant energy, healthy bodies, and motivation to not just make it though each day, but to thrive and truly live and love life. We quickly fell into a high raw, plant-based lifestyle consisting of lots of green juice, vegetables, and watery fruits with a sprinkling of nuts and seeds. We began to experience more than just a physical change in our bodies. Our minds became clear, our moods more even, and we experienced great digestion and bowel health.
Waking up motivated and excited about life and what the day has to offer has been the biggest gift. I know there are many factors that come into play when talking about true health, for it is truly a long-term, conscious choice to continually learn and grow in all aspects: physically, mentally, and spiritually.
As we continued our journey, we explored super foods like cacao. We fell in love with the palatable and vibrational difference between the heated and toasted cocoa we had always been accustomed to, and the vibrant fruity life-giving RAW cacao we had now added to our diet! We thought, “This is a gift from mother nature that others needed to experience!”
This is where Living Raw was born: out of love. Everyone is on their own individual path to health. While not everyone may subscribe to a high raw diet of fruits and vegetables, we wanted to support others on their own personal journey to a long-term healthy lifestyle, finding what works best for them.
We wanted to offer a truly energizing, uplifting treat that would satisfy any sweet craving while not derailing anyone’s health goals. We have done this with Living Raw Truffles. It fills our hearts to know we are offering a truly decadent and satisfying organic treat that is free of pesticides, filler, and GMOs. You can rest assured knowing we source our ingredients from ethical farms from around the world and that our cacao is fair trade. Living Raw was and continues to be built on love and good vibes. We honor the human body and believe in the human spirit!
Thank you for allowing us to be apart of your journey.
