Raw Dessert Chef
Tanya is co-owner of Thrive Organic Kitchen & Café which provides healthier food to the local neighbourhood and advocates for better nutrition around the world.
Tanya is a health food connoisseur whose passion for raw, vegan foods began with the health of her own family. “When health issues arose for my family years ago, a friend recommended a Raw Food Diet. I jumped right in, researching the health benefits of raw foods and being mentored by a holistic nutritionist. It was the start of my journey to health—it changed my body, mind and life forever!” says Tanya.
Tanya went on to launch Living Chocolate, a raw food desert business that provided local restaurants with organic, raw, vegan Chocolate Bars, Superfood Powderballs and “Cheese” Cakes. Thrive Organics was one of Tanya’s first clients and over the years they have built a great working relationship.
“We decided to partner together officially as both Thrive and Living Chocolate are 100% nutritionally-focused and have the same vision to educate people about nutrition in a way that impacts their lives and helps them to thrive!” says Tanya about becoming a co-owner. Her deliciously nutritious deserts are now packaged under the Thrive brand and are still one of Thrive’s most popular menu items, and her business acumen for franchising and expansion will help bring a Thrive Organic Kitchen & Cafe to a neighbourhood near you!
