+Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram was the first raw vegan I was introduced to in the beginning of my journey. I remember coming home from school one day, and my dad told me about her and showed me a video. The first video that I ever saw of Kristina was her low-fat, deep dish raw lasagna. I was inspired! My dad and I started watching more of her videos, and I was hooked! Her videos had inspired me enough to go fully raw! I felt Kristina’s positive energy through her videos. She is a HUGE inspiration to me and SO many others!!! If you don’t know about Kristina, you’re missing out on inspirations in the raw world because I believe EVERY raw vegan and vegan should know Kristina! C’mon, I mean it only makes sense. 😉
Kristina Carillo Bucaram is the creator of Rawfully Organic and Fully Raw. Rawfully Organic is a co-op that was first started in Kristina’s living room (she was 20 years old at the time) with 12 neighbors. The story about how Rawfully Organic began and how it became a huge success is incredible! She talks more about her co-op in her videos. Fox News reviews her co-op in this video. Rawfully Organic feeds over 6000 families! My dream/goal is to visit her co-op in Houston, Texas one day. I’d love that! That’d be a nice, cool, fun road trip!
her beautiful co-op!
Kristina has been 100% low-fat raw vegan since 2005! She was able to overcome her hyperglycemia at the age of 16, through her wise diet changes. She’s also a runner! She runs over 8 miles a day, double that on weekends! Kristina has a lot of informative, fun videos; I recommend watching them ALL! Trust me. They’re worth it and you’ll be fully inspired… I hope.
Kristina has been a HUGE motivation and inspiration to me along my journey! I absolutely LOVE watching her videos! She is like a ray of happiness and sunshine; watching her videos are like a treat for me! You’ll fall in love with her and her videos – I mean, how can you not?! She is so cute and funny in her videos! She is smart, beautiful, sweet, kind, and an inspiration! She has a cool personality, too! She is a TRUE inspiration and I can’t hardly wait to meet her at the Woodstock Fruit Festival!! I can seriously write a long essay about how much I love and adore Kristina! She’s so interesting and inspiring! Kristina’s the “Queen of Raw Foods” (i gave her that title ;). She’s a raw food goddess!
Fully Raw Kristina’s food pictures are beautiful!
Kristina’s mission is to motivate and inspire others to eat more raw fruits and vegetables into their diets! She believes that YOU too can go raw, and she wants to help you get there! Kristina wants to share her special gifts with the world, so that you may be inspired to go fully raw. I like how Kristina doesn’t push this lifestyle onto anyone. I also like how she expresses her emotions (she isn’t afraid of letting her heart out) intellectually without making fun or hurting someone’s feelings. She does not convince people to go raw — she just inspires and motives! That’s what Kristina is here for!
Kristina is one of my raw role models! 😉
Most raw vegans and vegans know who Kristina is and how epic she is. If you don’t know her, I highly encourage you to please look into her, watch her videos, follow her, and send her some hugs! She loves hugs and comments, too! Let her know you found her threw me. 😉
