Afriyie changed her diet by divine intervention in 1974. She was in the 11th grade and working for a fast food restaurant called Busy Butcher which became her primary source for her meals because of her work and school schedule. Afriyie began to notice that her bowl movements changed in texture and less frequent so she made the decision to stop eating at work and eliminate everything processed and white not knowing that there was a well established natural food movement out there. Her knowledge of this movement came by way of a Fruitarian, which she felt was a little hard to believe that someone could survive on fruit alone. Her next introduction was to an Airtarian which was too extreme but interesting non-the less. Within 2 years she was eventually introduced to other Vegetarians and started her own experimenting and sampling other ethnic vegetable meals and incorporating most of what she learned into her own preparation style and food choices. Afriyie knows that she was blessed early in life and committed herself to empower others by encouraging, sharing and teaching others what they desire to learn and to prepare the highest quality nutritional meals/drinks/snacks/condiments that she possibly can.
Afriyie believes that in our “Quest For Life” there are 3 major Quest,

*The Quest for Spiritual Development
*The Quest for Respectful Love
*The Quest for Optimum Health
She wants to assist as much as she can. Reach-Out and she will Reach-Back.
