. I absolutely love Michelle's simple, fun and educational raw food videos. Since that time, Michelle has continued to be an integral member of our website and was our
In February I asked Michelle to tell us a little background on herself and how she started making her internet video program, it's a High Raw Life, and here is what she had to share:
"My husband and I began our family in Berkeley, California and then went on to spend 8 years in Southern California before moving to Northern New Jersey in 2008. Life is busy for me as a stay at home mom with 3 children ages 3 to 13.
Like so many people I spent most of my life struggling with my relationship to food and dieting. In June of 2005 I found my first Raw Food book. I researched what I could online, bought a used juicer and went for it. I saw amazing results in the first two weeks of transitioning to Raw, then I let life get in the way.
When visiting a friend last May (2009), I noticed her beautiful juicer sitting in the corner of her kitchen, it ignited a spark in me. I went home and dusted off my book and my juicer and dove into transitioning with a passion. To my great surprise the information available online had exploded over the last 4 years. After losing a few pounds I noticed a major emotional shift. Layers of deep seeded pain, fear, and anger began peeling away. I was more empowered by that than loose pants. I had begun detoxing my psyche.
I began searching for some connections online but everywhere I looked I was being sold something. I had some disappointing experiences and felt gullible. When I found the Raw Food Rehab it was like a breath of fresh air. People supporting each other just for the sake of supporting each other.
I originally began making the "it's a High Raw Life" videos to connect with friends back in California who wanted to know what I was up to. I realized it was motivating me and I just kept going. I am proud to say I make a tiny impact now and then, and I am embarrassed to say the comments and feedback I get are truly fulfilling. Honestly the positive vibes I get from making "it's a High Raw Life" fill me up more than any food ever could. Now that is what it is all about!"
