This web site is for people who are interested in adopting a whole plant foods diet. Your motivation might be for various reasons, be it
- to adopt a healthier diet,
- save animals from unnecessary suffering,
- reduce your carbon footprint significantly, or
- help create a world where everyone has enough to eat.
My name is Petra, and I am here to help you facilitate this process.
I have a single subject teaching credential in health and business and a multiple subject teaching credential. I completed my training as a raw food chef at Living Light Culinary Arts Institute and have received a certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell University. I am trained to teach the Physicians Committee Food for Life classes, which include healthy weight management, cancer and diabetes prevention, employee wellness, and kids health.

I taught nutrition education at the Fort Bragg Unified School District in Fort Bragg, California from 2005-2015 and have worked as a subcontractor for public health since 2013. In that time I changed my diet from better than average omnivore to a mostly whole plant foods diet. I feel very passionate about eating healthy and sharing what I have learned with people who are interested in eating a diet that makes everyone win. I know in my heart that raising people’s consciousness about the ill-effects of an animal-centered diet will prompt more people to adopt a saner diet.
