Hi there, nice to meet you! I’m Jess Hamilton, the owner and chief writer behind radiantlyrawkitchen.com. Hope you enjoy your stay! Feel free to read on if you’re interested in my journey so far.

Welcome to Radiantly Raw Kitchen, a vibrant space where I share my lifelong journey of veganism and raw eating. This “About Me” page is where you can get to know the heart and soul behind this blog and learn about my passion for health, wellness, and the raw vegan lifestyle.

I was born and raised in the heart of California, where I was fortunate to grow up surrounded by a bounty of fresh, organic fruits and vegetables. My love for food blossomed from a young age, as I helped my mom in our family garden and learned about the beauty of nature’s gifts. My path towards veganism began when I was a teenager, fueled by my love for animals and my growing understanding of the impact our food choices have on the environment and our health.

I fully embraced a vegan lifestyle in my early twenties and quickly found that it brought me tremendous physical, mental, and emotional benefits. I felt more energetic, my skin cleared up, and I had a newfound sense of connection to the earth and all its inhabitants.

As I dove deeper into the world of plant-based eating, I discovered the raw food movement. The idea of consuming food in its most natural state, uncooked and unprocessed, resonated with me on a profound level. I embarked on a journey to learn more, immersing myself in books, workshops, and online communities, and eventually attending the prestigious Living Light Culinary Institute to become a certified raw food chef and educator.

Over the years, I have learned that raw eating is not just a diet, but a holistic lifestyle that celebrates the abundance and beauty of nature. It’s a way to nourish our bodies, minds, and spirits, while also honoring the planet and its resources. Through “Radiant Rawness,” I hope to share my passion for raw veganism with you and inspire you to embrace a lifestyle that can truly transform your life.

Here on the blog, you will find a treasure trove of raw vegan recipes, tips for living a vibrant and healthy lifestyle, and personal stories from my own journey. Whether you’re a seasoned raw foodist, a curious vegan, or just looking to incorporate more plant-based meals into your diet, I hope that you’ll find inspiration, support, and community here at Radiantly Raw Kitchen.

Thank you for joining me on this exciting adventure. I can’t wait to see the beautiful transformations that unfold as we explore the world of raw eating and veganism together.

With love and gratitude,
