Profile Information

About Me: (at least a couple of sentences; ex: family, interests, hobbies, favorite quote, personal mission statement, etc
I have always been passionate about food and my parents share that I had a “sophisticated palate and was a gourmet foodie” from very early on in life. Due to some fairly dramatic health challenges, I started searching for natural ways to improve my symptoms and began to explore alternative healing, diet and lifestyle changes. It was 10 years ago when I became enlightened to the vibrancy and healing aspects of raw food, changing my diet nearly overnight, and marveled that the majority of my health symptoms disappeared within days. Jumping into this way of eating with both feet quickly re-educated my palate, which ultimately created an overall reality shift for me.

My current approach is a diet of real, whole, fresh food and eating and living this way has brought forth a beautiful perspective on the culinary world for me. Honestly, the food was simply the catalyst that opened the door to what has become a most exciting journey of learning, growing, healing and sharing.

My personal story of life transformation was first published in super-model Carol Alt‘s book, The Raw 50, and has since been shared in a variety of publications, online journals and websites. I’m blessed to be the author of a number of books, including Raw Food Cleanse (Ulysses Press 2010).

In addition to being the creator of Real Food Rehab, I'm now working as the Director of Tulsa Oklahoma's largest farmers' market group, which is what keeps me most busy these days. I consider myself a social architect, as my passion is fueled by helping to connect others and building a sense of community for health conscious real food enthusiasts. I'm passionate about helping to inspire others to live their best life possible.

Hi Penni!  You're looking fabulous!  

I'm wondering if you know anything about food allergies?  I was recently diagnosed with a strawberry allergy (sobs inserted here) and I am betting it's because of all the pesticides/herbicides/insecticides/...ides used these days.  Have you heard anything about people being able to eat organically grown strawberries if they were diagnosed with an allergy in adulthood?  THANKS!  Take care and be well.  ~Celeste

Hello Penni, thank you for your inspiring words and works of wisdom.

I too am new at this, and have recovered from cancer. I am now having to shift my way of eating once again (I was doing fine until I began to cook for my partner who eats a lot of unhealthy foods). 

Thanks again for inspiring many others.

Sara (smile)

Lauren, I have the same message, word for word. Consider that spam.
