We are Julie and Katrin born and raised in Sweden but with origins from Norway and Finland. We are not just sister but we are also best friends being very passionate about life and the journey that follows with it. At the moment Julie is newly relocated to Amsterdam and Katrin is based in Gothenburg but very soon we will be reunited again. We are going to explore healthy and raw living together in Amsterdam.
Throughout the years we have lived at several places such as Rome, Florence, Amsterdam and Berlin. Despite being able to call many places our home something we also treasure in life is to travel. We love to explore new places, meet and connect with people from all over the world. Through our international experiences both living and traveling to numerous places we have realized our heart desires. It is to get people to connect across borders.
We are a bit of rookies when it comes to the raw food vegan lifestyle. Our transition to raw food living actually started as early as in January 2013. In our search for optimal health we went completely cold turkey by going from a “meat loving diet” to become 100% vegan. The health benefits we realised just after couple of days were remarkable. We started to do a lot of research and found out about the raw food movement. This totally opened up new doors for us and the more we read about the raw food lifestyle the more convinced we were that yes this is us.
One thing that we noticed when getting inspiration online is that we experienced a lack of people sharing their transition period towards a raw vegan lifestyle. Of what we have experienced so far it is important to have support from others because at times it can be a bit challenging. The benefits of being a raw foodist are incredible but at the beginning each day is not a bed of roses. What we want to do is to share what we learn along the way by going raw. Let’s inspire and motivate each other, share our stories and promote that healthy living is fun!
