Michelle Irwin, h.h.p., raw food chef, author

Michelle is a passionate raw food chef and instructor, a licensed holistic health practitioner, a certified lymphologist, and a mother of two. Her desire for helping others led to writing this guiltless cookbook. She mastered the art of using stevia in recipes. She is a pioneer in the sugar-free raw movement. Michelle worked for the Reversing Diabetes Program at the Weimar Institute and currently teaches sugar-free raw living in Sacramento, CA. Michelle earned her Raw Food Chef and Instructor certification from the world famous Living Light Culinary Arts Institute, and a Bachelor of Science degree from the prestigious United States Military Academy at West Point.

After serving in the Army for 5 years (where she jumped out of airplanes and became a paratrooper), Michelle was honorably discharged for the medical condition Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease, meeting the criteria for Lupus. With that diagnosis, she began her long quest for answers. Through many years of studying and research, she found help through a vegan, sugar-free, mostly raw diet, as well as using alternative medicine. It helped her so much that she needed to share it with others who were also desperate for answers. She currently has a holistic health practice and teaches sugar-free raw food preparation classes.

When she is not consulting with clients, or whipping something up in the kitchen, you will find Michelle power-walking or playing with her children.
