Being a vegan for over 30 years and a proponent of Living Foods, I’ve learned that good nutrition is good eating, good digesting, and absorbing the nutrients your body needs. However, most people eat food that has been cooked and then warmed up. This process depletes the enzyme activity in food and prevents the optimum digestion and absorption of nutrients.

I’ve often said, I could have never eaten this way for so many years just eating steamed rice, boiled vegetables, plain lettuce, and tomatoes. I need flavors, textures, and color which all aid in digestion of food. What I hope to bring you is my love of the exotic blend of fruits, grains, vegetables, and sprouts that our natural world has to offer. Remember that the most magnificent gift of any of us will ever be given is our own body.

At Karyn’s, we are committed to using only whole fresh foods (organic) whenever possible. We create fresh delicious and high quality meals that are high in fiber and low in fat. For over 20 years I have been teaching and counseling individuals and running workshops showing people the practical, holistic ways to improve their lives, conveying the importance of food choices and how to prepare these tasty nutritious foods for themselves at home.

I believe we should prepare our foods to nurture and sustain our bodies. In our busy, stress ­ filled lives, we aren’t always able to give priority to ourselves. Consistency is the key to making healthy lifestyle changes. Let us help you maintain that consistency with our Living Food Menu and delicious cooked foods.

Here’s to your health and happiness!
