Australian Cypriot cookery whiz Erini Loucaides is the author of the ground-breaking recipe book, SOAR ON RAW!, which gloriously entwines over 100 deities from World Mythology with vibrant, fresh vegetarian ingredients.
At the age of 14, Erini became a vegetarian and began her research into the art of healthy living.
In 2005 she devoured the detox guide Detox Your World and her world shot out of orbit and fully spun into rawbit. Life was one voluptuous dance after that, albeit with some tripping and traipsing until she found her burgeoning rhythm.
After completing a degree in English Literature, Erini went on to her spread her culinary teachings. By day Erini teaches literature at a private school in Cyprus, by night, she concocts with the gods.
For over fifteen years, she has been co-running The Ecology Club at the private school where she teaches (American Academy Larnaca), focussing on both inner and outer ecology. This has involved visits to health and environmental centres, and many organic farms, including the Alternative Technology Centre in Wales as well as attending many ecological conferences, even as far as Nepal. Erini has attended seminars and lectures by noted raw foodists like David Wolfe and has been advised by raw food authors, Karen Knowler and Gina Panayi.
Erini adores creating easy and tasty recipes – spirit food – that puts a smile on people’s faces. You can check out the divinely inspired recipes at www.soaronraw.com
In 2013, Erini joined the The Mother Magazine team, with her own regular column, showcasing her Raw Food Mythology recipes to subscribers in 40 countries. She has also had a column in the online, monthly Greek magazine Prosopiki Evexia, providing seasonal raw recipes every month.
Erini’s mission is to show that you can still enjoying healthy, raw vegetarian food without having to follow the lifestyle rigidly. Erini gives people the advice, tips and tools so they can go forth, deciding how much raw food they wish to bring into their life at their own pace. Nothing catapults Erini to other stratospheres as much as raw food does.
Erini is currently working on her second book, the first instalment in a mythological trilogy.
