I always considered myself a healthy eater, preferring bottled juice over soda pop and whole wheat bread instead of bleached, white bread, but the truth is I ate many over processed and additive-filled foods from cans, packages, and boxes labeled "healthier", "low fat", or "low calorie". Despite my efforts, my diet resembled too closely the Standard American Diet, also known as the SAD diet. Little did I know killing the nutrients almost killed me. I'll never forget when the doctor told me I'd be on medication for the rest of my life, increasing the dosage because diseases are degenerative.
Long story made short, my personal discovery to wholeness and healing eventually led to my becoming a whole food and raw food chef. I have to admit there’s no better feeling than kicking the ol’ bottle—pill bottle, that is!
With a passion for whipping up deliciousness, I enjoy creating whole and raw foods, whether eaten whole turned into gourmet cuisine. Some of my favorite demos include easy raw food recipes, spending pennies on the dollar for the best probiotics through fermenting whole foods, and, of course, my raw pastry arts and healthy desserts! It was out of a need to eat pure and unrefined ingredients for my health that Jenny’s Pure Food® Desserts were born. However, this journey wasn't just for myself. It would turn out to be for many others--just like my friend Ross.
A good family friend, Ross is a funny guy, joking all the time, that is, when he’s not being darn serious about his health! Ross happens to be diabetic. I noticed Ross was not able to eat my "be deliciously healthy" desserts, even though they were made with all natural ingredients, such as raw honey and maple syrup. It was back to the drawing board, "kitchen wooden board", that is, to create a low glycemic dessert for those like Ross and for people like me, who are cutting back on the sugars in general.
