We have both personally been through multiple mental and physical health issues such as chronic fatigue syndrome, eating disorders, parasites in the gut and our dad had a stroke. We have all healed ourselves through incorporating more plants and whole, unprocessed foods into our diet. Now we want to help heal you!
Two Raw Sisters specialise in influencing and educating the community on how easy, time efficient and cost effective plant based foods can be through our plant-based food cooking workshops, catering and cookbooks.
Our main focus is changing perceptions on plant-based foods. A lot of people have a negative perception around plant- based eating, that it is really expensive, time consuming and difficult to make. With culinary experience in the raw industry (studying at world renewed raw plant-based culinary school, PlantLab in LA, USA) we know for sure that, it is and everything takes 12-24 hours to cook. The general person doesn’t have time to start Thursday’s dinner on Monday.
Two Raw Sisters has evolved into teaching people cooking techniques that will last a lifetime. By ‘raw’ we mean another word for whole-foods, using as minimally processed foods as possible. We focus on minimising the use of nuts, seeds and superfoods, instead we focus on utilising seasonal produce. In turn, making plant-based eating a cost effective, time efficient, easy way of living.
People have lost touch with food and what it’s like to be at the peak of their wellness. They don’t get excited about plants or cooking for themselves because all they know is the boring stir-frying, boiling and steaming.
We pride ourselves on having a unique approach to plant-based living. Neither of us are vegan or vegetarian and 90% of our customer base aren’t either. With NZ being such a big meat and dairy orientated country, we feel people know how to cook meat but not fruit and vegetables in a fun, exciting and delicious way. We feel by taking this perspective on ‘healthy eating’ people don’t freak out and it becomes more of a lifestyle than a fade diet.
Basing your meal around plants and then adding your meat, dairy, fish or poultry on the side, if you choose.
