Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about unbecoming everything that isn’t you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.

Well, hello there, and welcome! I'm Eliana, the face behind the magic here at Raw, Crude and Juicy!  I'm bringing healthy back, and I wanted to create this space to document my journey and help inspire others to live RAW CRUDE AND JUICY!  

I strive to eat a high-RAW (plant-based) CRUDE (unrefined, unprocessed) diet, while incorporating as much green JUICE as I can!  After many, many experiments, this has been what's worked best for me to stay healthy, fit and full of energy.  When I first incorporated this lifestyle, I not only let go of 78 lbs, but I felt better than I ever had in my whole life!  After, a few years on this lifestyle, I hit a few bumps in the road (blog post), which led me to question my choices.  I experimented with other diets, and all that came of those experiments were years of yo-yo dieting.  I realized, that it wasn't just the weight of which I had to let go.  There were years and years of feelings hiding away in those pounds.  Life brought me many, many gifts disguised as struggles, and when I surrendered and allowed the lessons to teach me what I had to let go of, I learned to live with a sense of peace, no longer needing those extra pounds to hide under. 

Raw, Crude and Juicy isn't just a lifestyle, it's an attitude for living a radiant life! To live RAW  means live authentically, by being CRUDE and letting go of the need for perfection, so you can live a JUICY sexy life without holding back!


Where do I even begin...  Let's see, I am a scientist, bioethicist, law student, who lives to learn as much as possible and make a difference in this world.  I am passionately curious, and when I'm not taking a multitude of courses in a number of random subjects, I'm out there traveling the world. Because, really ... isn't that what life is all about?  The way I see it, we get one life and I'm here to explore as much of it as I can.  


Thank you for joining me on this journey to live
