Manuela began her raw food journey six years ago when she was searching for an alternative way to heal inflammation in her body after a snowboarding accident. She joined a 21 day raw food detox and never looked back. Her body instantly began to heal and function in its most optimum level, and she significantly noticed a huge shift in her vitality, clarity and mood. What was at first just a diet, became a lifestyle. She left her successful career in the visual effects film industry in San Francisco, California, and began sharing her knowledge to help others in their journey to a healthier lifestyle. “Nothing affects us more than what we eat…when we clean up our bodies, we clean up our lives…we remove all the filters that are keeping us from feeling 100% alive and connected to ourselves, those around us, and our planet”.
