Our idea of what constitutes "food" in American culture has become so skewed that it is almost unrecognizable. Our supermarkets are packed with products whose ingredients include unpronounceable chemicals, dyes, bacteria, and growth hormones. They are irradiated without our consent and contain GMOs.It's time to bring back FOOD. Pure unadulterated organic RAW food.This blog is a documentation of my continuing journey on a plant-based lifestyle.

About Raw Food Nerd


Hi, I'm Alysha Maiorelli, The Raw Food Nerd and owner of Positively Plant-Powered. I am a Plant-based Lifestyle Coach, Raw/Vegan chef, and am currently training to become a Holistic Health/Nutrition Counselor. Welcome to Raw Food Nerd, the blog. I created Raw Food Nerd back in 2010 as a way to document my journey while following a plant-based lifestyle; one that predominately consists of whole, ripe, organic raw food. Raw Food Nerd is part my own raw and vegan food journey {as I have been vegan for a total of 8 years now and a high carb low fat raw/vegan for 4)} and part a vehicle for showing people that healthy food is not boring, bland, and time-consuming, but rather exciting, delicious, and as simple or complicated as YOU desire. All recipes are my own and inspired by my knowledge of the high carb, low fat, raw/vegan diet. Everything is gluten-free, low-sodium, and oil-free!

Feel free to contact me in regards to any questions or concerns you have for transitioning to a plant-based lifestyle!
