About Raw and Well

Just the old story of an acclaimed Personal Chef turned regenerative detox specialist / healer

It’s amazing isn’t it?

You don’t always know where the journey is going to end when you first start. At any critical moment, if a different decision was made, if I had taken a different direction, who knows where I would have landed. And then, when I look back, I see a perfect path that got me exactly where I need to be.

The Organic Personal Chef

I am the owner and creator of The Organic Personal Chef, an organic plant-based approach to health & wellness, founded in 2003. I served individuals and families that desired restaurant quality (or better) meals in the comfort of their own homes.

Many of my clients had special needs, from weight issues to celiac, from diabetes to food allergies and from skin problems to heart issues. And I worked with people from all walks of life from professional athletes to lawyers, from families with toddlers to senior citizens living alone.

I learned my clients were able to meet their health goals by providing them with delicious meals because they were more likely to succeed on their diet if they enjoyed the foods they ate. Being healthy does not have to be boring. The Organic Personal Chef

Certified Raw Chef

One of my services for The Organic Personal Chef was restaurant consulting. I’d create healthy menu options to small health conscious restaurants. They were well received and I wanted to offer more. Becoming a certified raw chef was the next level.

I had already incorporated some raw desserts and treats with my clients but getting certified exposed me to a new direction I had wanted to consider. My longtime clients took the journey with me from extraordinary fine dining to delicious organic to amazing vegetarian to magnificent vegan and now to raw vegan. My delicious raw vegan recipes were loved by raw foodies, vegans and meat lovers alike!

Chef Vanda became Raw Chef Vanda!

I still created natural wholistic nutrition tailored specifically for my clients. And they were noticing changes in their bodies when they ate right, they felt better.

Raw and Well started as an extension of The Organic Personal Chef. I would go to raw vegans’ home and prepare a week’s worth of meals.

The Raw and Well Story

Natural healing, regenerative detoxification, iridology practioner, living foods coach

The obvious next step on my “Food Is Medicine” journey is healing. I studied the teachings of Hippocrates, Gerson and others before I ran across Dr. Morse. His message resonated with me and his teachings spoke of simple changes that felt right. Instead of drinking gallons of specific juices, exotic enemas and strict rules, Dr. Morse’s instructions were simple – fruit helps.

I completed Level I Detox Specialist and was able to affect my own healing immediately. Long term ailments disappeared and a sense of wellness took over.

Level II opened up a new access to a person’s health. I now believe I can help my clients achieve health in a whole new way. I love being a catalyst that brings youthfulness (is that even a word?) to my clients. And I do.

Some of Vanda Maria's Best Qualities

The body has the natural ability to heal itself, my personal technique addresses the detox process from a natural perspective.

I concentrate not only on the physical (the symptom and the root cause), but also the need for cleansing, healing and regeneration.
