In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we finally dive into the raw lifestyle with THE Yovana Mendoza of Rawvana. We have spoken with many raw foodists before on this show, but this time we provide you with the basic foundations you need to know about eating a raw diet especially if it is something you have been considering. Yovana provides all her materials in both English and Spanish in order to help provide resources for those who share her native tongue. Although she was born in America, her Mexican heritage is very important to her. Of course we talk about what a raw diet is, and the different types of sub-raw diets. But more importantly, we talk about practical meals and time-saving ideas to make eating raw at least a bit more accessible to everyone.

Yovana Mendoza, the founder of Rawvana, brings a vibrant and authentic voice to living a healthy, conscious, vegan lifestyle. She flips the standard narrative on its head, emphasizing abundance over restriction. Yovana started her YouTube channel over 4 and a half years ago and now, with over a million YouTube followers, she enthusiastically cultivates a welcoming and inclusive space for those looking to improve their lifestyles and lives. She has been vegan for four and a half years. In her quest for knowledge, Yovana has interned with Dr. Douglas Graham and obtained a certification in the Science of Raw Food Nutrition from the Living Light Institute. She is also a certified Holistic Health Coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
