My Transition to 100% Raw

Hey guys! Happy Monday :) I have a new video up for you talking about my experience going 100% raw - and a bit more information on what this lifestyle consists of. I hope you find it interesting. The video was initially A LOT longer because I had quite a lot to say, but I trimmed it down as much as I could to keep all the topics short & sweet. Let me know if there's anything you'd like me to talk more in depth about in a separate video! Also, feel free to share if you are currently on a raw foods lifestyle or if it’s something you would like to try one day. I hope you guys enjoy the video!

This is super good over raw / regular pasta, as a salad dressing, as a dip...


  1. Hi Annie ! I'm really curious to eat this way, but it's really difficult to follow this lifestyle when you have a family. I'm 20 years young and still lives by my mom and dad.. They are against this and eat really fat.

    And for example, tomorrow I'm going for 2 days to Disneyland Paris. And in may I am going 10 days to France for my internship. How can I eat raw on these days or at least healthy?

    When you go away (like vacation) how do you eat healthy? Sometimes you don't have a lot of choice to eat.

    Thank you for your answer !! :) Definitely check out my blog:

    You are so gorgeous!

  2. Hi Annie! You've been such an inspiration to me. I always look forward to your videos because of your fun positive attitude. You are such a genuine sweet girl. Praying for your health xoxo

  3. Hi Annie!! I am rooting for you & hope that you continue to feel better and see positive changes in your health and life due to this raw lifestyle. I am very interested to see if you keep with it, because I've tried it once before and was overwhelmed by how much I had to eat to keep my energy level up during workouts. Best of luck and I wish you well!

  4. Hi Annie,
    I'm so happy that you decided to go raw. I've been a Vegan for 5 years now and my body feels so good. I can't imagine having a lifestyle that is any different. Because Veganism is so good for my body. I hope that you keep this lifestyle up!

  5. Great answers best of luck in your medical issue is understandable if you do not feel comfortable to share. I have a question can you get vitamin D from yogurt instead of 15 min with no protection in the sun I need to know if I'm in the sun for 5 second already I feel a sunburn trust me Thank you.

  10. Really beautiful video, I loved it! I'm eating about 80% raw and would love to see some more raw recipes!

  11. Just wanted to let everyone know about my healthy lifestyle blog where I post healthy recipes, workout and motivation!

  12. Dear Annie I was so excited to see this video as today is my first raw day of a trial of 21 days that I am planning to make. I wanted to ask you about the probiotics? Is there anything particular I need to look at when choosing a brand? Thank you! You are fantastic creature :)))

  13. Hi Annie.Since years i've been a "silent" follower. And eventhough I didn't wrote comments ect. I am a biiiiig fan of what you do and I actually just wanted to say that I'm absolutley 100% sure that you will get better soon what ever thing you have. Because you are just wonderful in every way !
    Much love from Switzerland


    I just found this blog and it's very inspiring! I hope you'll like it :)
    Can you please share with us the data crumble recipe?

    You so gorgeous and positive! I wish you all the best!


  15. Hi Annie! I am sorry to hear about whatever you have. What comes hand in hand with a healthy diet/medication when you are diagnosed with something is definitely your state of mind. You have to keep positive, persistant and have the willpower to overcome it. This is half the work. While I know that it's personal. sharing your journey can inspire others, and it could be a outlet for you.

    On a positive note, it's so inspirational that you are going clean in make up and food. When you go out there there is just so much temptation with unhealthy food and chemically filled make up. Coming back to your blog always gives me perspective and keeps my eyes on the prize! I would love to see you do some sort of series sharing your daily life and routine. For example listing your usual day to day exercise routine in a week, a list of example of what you would eat in a week and your weekly skincare routine. I just feel that this would make it easy for anyone starting out exercising and eating healthy. I also hope you share some of the information you find out in regards to your diet and recipes.
    I always look forward to your vids <3

  16. Hi! I'm truly grateful for all ur videos. You are a heart warming person. I feel happy every time I see them and how informative they are. I hope n pray you get better soon . Lots of love your way. Karla xoxo

  17. I am so looking into this! I literally wish I could just magically transform into you Annie! You're such an inspiration :) Hey everyone, please do check out my blog for everything fashion, makeup and makeovers!

  18. Really interesting video!!!!

  19. Hi Annie, I have been watching your videos for a while now and I just wanted you to know that your subscribers are thinking about you and we are hear for you! Looking forward to hearing about you being well again and even happier with your 100% raw lifestyle <3 xo

  20. Hi,

    It's the first time that I put a comment here :)
    I am french, so please excuse me for the english mistakes!
    I just wanted to tell you that I really appreciate the path that you are currently taking. It's so different from all the other beauty channels on youtube. And I don't know why, but I feel that you are genuinely a gentle person. Someone who is sincere and who cares about her life, her actions, others.
    I am 24 years old too and I came up to the same conclusions as you recently. I decided that I will use 100% chemical free / natural make-up and eat ecological food. And that I will only eat meat or fish if the animal was killed "properly" and had a decent life (by the way, I don't know if you read "Killing animals", but I learned a lot by reading this book).
    I also wanted to tell you that I use a lot Weleda cosmetics. I don't know if you tried them, but if I should recommend 2 products to you, it would be:
    - this facial cleanser / cleansing milk:
    It smells lavender and I really like the smell, it reminds me the south of France :)
    - and also this cream, for the hands:
    Again, the smell is very nice. It put it on my hands before going to bed and I feel relaxed.

    I hope you will get better soon. I really mean it, even if I don't know you in real life.
    But also (and I don't want to give the impression to know everything!) maybe don't give up entirely on meat and fish. I know that they can do great "good" to your body if you choose them carefuly. Hard to find my words in english...

    Have a nice day :)

  21. Just watched the video! So great to see that you're really doing your research and that this lifestyle is totally working for you; I hope it helps heal you as well. Going 100% raw isn't easy and not for everyone, but for those it is right for it is perfect.

  22. I know I love eating raw, it's delicious and saves time on preparing food!

    I have a post on my blog about 8 easy ways to get a healthier lifestyle that you may find beneficial to your already healthy lifestyle. You are a true inspiration to myself and many others. I know you are a genuine, positive and beautiful person inside and out. I am wishing you all the best.

  23. I have been following this blogger ( and thought you might be interested as she has gone through Gerson Therapy. She is an amazing and positive person, just like you. Sending you positive thoughts and love.xo

  24. Hi Annie, I hope you get great news from your doctors. In the mean time, I hope you've got the support of people in your private life. Sharing these sorts of things with trusted people can help lessen the stress. Be well, keep positive. ;)
