About Me

Hi, my name is Heather Pace. I became a health conscious vegan at the age of 14 after reading the book Fit For Life. I discovered new ways to enjoy my favorite foods, particularly my beloved desserts.  My curiosity was peaked when I stumbled upon a raw food restaurant at the age of 16, and by the time I was 18 I attended my first raw retreat for a month in California.

My passion for food led me to a two year culinary school program at the age of 18. Despite the fact that I wasn’t interested in most of the food being prepared, I gained valuable experience by learning the basics and all that the food industry has to offer. I went on to work in various restaurants, bakeries, and as a personal chef. 
I have authored 7 raw dessert e-books, teach raw food classes, and have hosted several raw dessert challenges on this site.

I do product reviews on this site, so please email if you would like me to feature your natural food product or recipe book on my blog or create a video to promote your item.

I've just written a raw vegan dessert recipe book that is being published by Quarry Books and will be out January 2015. Stay tuned! It's a dream come true to able to share my recipes in an actual book.
My 13 years of veganism (including 5 years of mostly raw vegansim) recently ended when I became quite sick, and chose to adopt a whole foods diet which includes animal products and cooked food. You can read the full story HERE. And read a health update HERE. I've just started a new blog to document my new path to radiant health, called Universal Eater.

I'm also a certified kripalu yoga instructor and a keen world traveler.
