hi, i’m rachelle

I’ve always had bit of an untamable spirit for risk-taking and adventure. This innate desire is partly what thrust me deep into life’s arduous classroom fairly early in life. By the time I hit 30, I’d been through an unusual measure of adversity, successes and failures. This hunger for adventure has lead me into pain and heartache, but also amazing, beautiful and intensely transformational experiences that have allowed me to connect to a deep sense of self, develop a keen intuition and touch my soul’s potential.

I’ve spent the last decade learning hard lessons, searching my soul, and growing; and I’ve found that when you can be bold enough to make moves from your heart, and get back up when you fall, you become a being of mastery, rather than a misery. The book is a vulnerable expression of my own journey and aims to light the path in a potent way with respect to not only how you think about food and health, but to really propel you to understand that you are capable of so much more, and we all have an important ingredient to offer this world.
