Born in the Philippines raised in Germany and at home everywhere I go. As a edutainer and personal chef specialized in plant-based cuisine I am available for hosting raw food workshops, cooking classes, and special gourmet dinner events as well as tailored meal preparation. I am supporting my clients by preparing meals on a weekly basis, tailored to ones preferences and goals. I create a personalized menu, take care of the grocery, prepare the dishes and leave the fridge full with delicious items. My dishes are a unique fusion of different cuisine and originals inspired by my travel know-how of 5 years through over 70 countries.

My workshops and cooking classes are a fun, creative and educating platform focus on healthy, delicious, easy to prepare meals that inspire individuals to thrive and become more conscious about our food consumption.

I have quit my job sold everything I owned back in 2009 and traveled the world for 5 years without staying at a place longer than 4 month. It has turned my life upside down and made me the person I am today. My goal is to inspire you with my lifestyle and scrumptious plant-based dishes that I create to keep myself healthy and energetic. It is imperative to know what we eat and to have our diet back under control in order to thrive and evolve to a better and healthier version of ourself.  My love for creating beautiful and delicious dishes became even more colorful and vibrant after I decided to become vegan.

Most of the myth out there and questions I receive was, what can you eat besides salads and fruits? Aren’t you missing vitamins and protein? It is a huge misconception and I wanted not only to tell and show people what plant-based food is all about but I also wanted to give them the opportunity to taste, learn and smell being integrated with all their senses to understand what it can be, and how it is made, at the same time. That’s why I created Vegan Crush Services which offers raw food workshops, cooking classes, and special gourmet dinner events as well as tailored meal preparation (personal chef service). It covers varieties of plant-based cuisine that provides everything from the following.

Raw Plant-Based Cuisine:

Demonstration of how to start eating raw and implementing more raw food to one’s died by recipes created to reveal potential of raw produce that are available and adaptable regardless where one is.

Healthy Plant-Based Cuisine:

Dishes to integrate and create that doesn’t require many ingredients and time by only using unprocessed nurturing plant-based products.

Transitioning Plant-Based Cuisine:

Food that helps people to understand that plant-based dishes can have textures like meat using seitan, tempeh, legumes etc. and that it has a bigger potential than one might think for example by using nuts as the base for creating authentic cheese alternatives.

Gourmet Plant-based Cuisine:

Special Dinner Events where one can experience gourmet fusion plant-based cuisine inspired by famous international dishes.

 

Most of us don’t know what our foot contains, how it was made, where it comes from and what effect it has in our body and environmentally. It  is worth a deeper insight to get control back over our diet. We are not aware about the fact that what we put in our mouth has a big influence not only for our body but also for our mind and well-being. So many people care more about what kind of gas they put in their cars or what kind of floor they put in their house instead of what they put in themselves to fuel their body. That should be the most important thing because it is your temple and what comes in is what comes out. See it as an investment in yourself by only buying top products for yourself and you wont have to pay for medicine or hospitals later on in life.

For more travel stories see videos down below because actions speak louder than words. Every country has its beauty but if you ask me about my favorite countries, one of them would definitely be, Nepal. Nepal is full of amazing and loving people that makes you feel, you are at home. I though I would be staying 3 weeks but ended up living in Nepal for 4 month. You can see a glimpse of my travels in Nepal down below. Another crazy travel experience I will never forget was South Africa, a land full of breathtaking vegetation, wild oceans and regal animals. Never will I forget how magical it was standing in front of approximately 30 elephants playing around the lake surrounded by antelopes, wild pigs, giraffes and birds. It felt like watching national geographic only way better! Here is a short glimpse for South Africa

Come and meet me in one of my workshops or special dinner events! Or let me support and help you with easy and quick recipes through cooking classes, weekly meal preparations or through online life coaching. I would love to spoil you with my dishes and give you tips and tools how to get control back over your diet. Invest in yourself in every aspect of life because you are worth it. You can only give what you have, if you have love for yourself you can love others, if you are healthy you can teach others how to be healthy. I am looking forward to inspire you and take you to my journey of a satisfying, healthy plant-based journey and lifestyle. Love yourself.
