Functional Plant-Based Chef and Food Doctor
Avril Amaya is a multi-passionate ‘food doctor‘, plant-based chef and educator, health and nutrition coach, lover of Nature and animals, and poet/singer/dancer.
She has been practicing and sharing food-as-medicine for over six years, working with individuals, teaching workshops to groups, and chefing/teaching at international retreats. She began her personal chef and health-consulting service in 2013 in Miami to assist people with healing, in addition to co-running a popular vegan pop-up restaurant there for a year.
After traveling the world for a decade, studying with masters in yoga, meditation, permaculture, Qi Gong, Thai massage, and Reiki, and healing herself from constant illness and a life revolving around doctor visits, she has found vibrant well-being and is passionate about spreading health and happiness, through deep connection to Self and Nature, and with the support of real foods and plant-based nutrition.
Equipped with a Harvard degree and a high-speed blender, Avril passionately shares the benefits of a fruit-and-vegetable-based lifestyle in Austin and beyond.
