Your Host

Linda Szarkowski Linda Szarkowski
Raw Food Chef and Instructor

Raw food expert Linda Szarkowski has come a long way in her culinary journeys. Hailing from North Dakota, she grew up on a meat-and-potatoes diet, slowly making her way through vegetarianism before eventually becoming a vegan. But her culinary transformation didn't stop there. When an experiment with a raw food diet resulted in a 20-pound weight loss, clearer skin, and dramatically boosted energy, Linda was sold. Today, she serves as the owner and a teacher at Green Spirit, a Chicago raw food staple that offers classes and foods for cooking-free lifestyles.
