Owner of Bliss Cafe, Raw Food Coach, Certified Alkaline Wellness Coach, and Certified in Vegan Nutrition, Melissa has passionately pursued a life and career towards healing the body naturally. Frustrated with often being sick, yo-yo dieting, and a low immune system, Melissa turned to more natural approaches to health in order to heal herself. She fell in love with the Raw Food lifestyle and decided to learn more, taking classes locally and online, and discovered that raw food, while simple, goes far beyond veggies and dip.
Melissa soon began developing her own recipes and decided to start her first Raw Food business at the local Country Market. Business grew quickly and the opportunity to own her first Raw Food restaurant became a reality. Melissa loves the energy and atmosphere that owning a Raw Food restaurant has brought into her life. "The people attracted to this way of living are some of the most positive and genuine people you could every meet. There is just something about making healthier choices that brings out the best in us."
Basically, raw food (sometimes called live or living food) is food that has not been cooked or exposed to temperatures over 118° F. At that temperature, the natural enzymes in food are destroyed. Enzymes are essential for all the chemical processes in your body, especially digestion.
At Bliss Cafe we also purchase as much organic and local food as possible, and dehydrate many foods at harvest time to preserve them for the winter.
