Description: Hey everyone! My name is Rory and I?m a CT native, born and grew up in West Haven. I moved to PA to do an organic farming internship at the Fulton Center for Sustainable Living, where I not only learned a lot of the hands on experience of farming, but I also met the girl of my dreams! Not a bad deal eh?
I got into raw foods a few years ago, after tasting my first prepared raw meal at the Loving Life Cafe I was hooked! I began learning everything I could about this fun new way of eating and I enjoyed the culinary challenge of preparing tasty dishes without cooking. I began concocting my own recipes, and over the course of a year and three months, I eased comfortably into the 100% raw lifestyle and I?m loving it! During my journey with raw foods I started sharing some of the simple raw recipes I concocted through YouTube videos to help others in the their healthy eating adventures. The responses to my videos and passion for sharing healthy living info was so great that I decided to combine my longtime fondness for the culinary world and passion for sustainable living and made teaching these skills my mission! I?ve since been certified in raw and living foods prep by Jody Allen (an amazing raw food chef and teacher with over ten years experience).
I continue to share raw recipes and healthy living ideas through online videos and now also teach in-your-home raw food prep classes! Recently I?ve released an e-book, ?Gettin? Raw with Rawdawg Rory? loaded with tips on easing into eating more raw and over 100 delicious and do-able recipes!
As of April ?09 I found myself back in CT again after discovering that the raw foods scene is blowing up in CT (and the east coast!) and you can find me often kickin? it at Catch a Healthy Habit Cafe whipping up some tasty concoctions and being a total food geek, as usual!
