Add More Raw: Kemi Nekvapil | Fab Friday Giveaway
This giveaway has now closed. Thanks to all that participated. Winner announced here
One of the wonderful things about being in the raw food business and having access to the internet, is you get to meet so many likeminded individuals all over the world, which for me is perfect as we get to travel to sometimes meet them face to face.
Even better when one of these people hail from your own home of Australia.
About a year ago, I went looking to see if there were any raw chefs in my home country and came across Kemi Nekvapil, who lives in Melbourne with her family and her enviable back yard edible organic garden.
At that time, Kemi had just released her ebook, Spring Fling, which she generously offered in a previous giveaway. You can grab her own copy of it here online.
Recently Kemi has released her first DVD, Add More Raw.
Kemi has been a professional baker and chef for 17 years so not not only does she have the raw cuisine know-how, she also has the classical culinary training behind her.
The part that stood out to me most about her DVD and her approach in general, is her non extremist and non pushy attitude to inspiring raw food onto others. There are plenty of people in the raw food biz who will do that already, when instead she encourages EVERYONE to ADD MORE RAW whether you still wish to eat meat, dairy or make no other changes to your diet, other than to just ADD MORE RAW.
I really love this philosophy as it is one I try to encourage for myself, especially living in a family with a very open minded husband, however one who wishes to never give up his cooked dinners nor meat and a little boy who LOVES his raw food, but has a non raw parent also.
This approach makes it more accessible and less elitist in my opinion, and really, for those of us who have taken this approach to our own health, you will find that the other ‘stuff’ in your diets tend to fall away naturally.
Kemi’s DVD includes some delicious recipes that don’t require any fancy equipment other than a blender and a food processor (no dehydrator or other kitchen gadgety that you wouldn’t normally find in a standard kitchen) and her onscreen approach is very delightful to watch. I cannot wait to meet Kemi in person and have her challenge me to that arm wrestle that I know she will just thrash me with anyway (we are always talking about our love for Body Pump class on twitter and Kemi is always encouraging me to increase my weights!).
I love Kemi’s playfulness and natural onscreen presence, and I think you will too and isn’t she just glowing with such health!
Soooo, Kemi is once again generously offering one Girl on Raw reader their own copy of her fabulous new DVD, ADD MORE RAW.
All you had to do is answer down in the comments sections this question:
“How do you ‘ADD MORE RAW’ to your day”
The giveaway is open worldwide and will close at midnight GMT time Sunday 8th July, 2012 with the winner drawn randomly and announced on the blog on Monday, 9th July, 2012, so you had better get cracking!
