ABOUT REBECCA

RebeccaRebecca is one of the kindest, loveliest women I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. What she does – with so much love – behind the scenes is to help women to release whatever is blocking them from having the lives they really want. She uses some of the more “woo woo” tools like angel card readings but only when it’s the right fit for a client. And quite frankly, it’s surprising to see these things from her too, because she’s so practical + explains things so well from the logistical side of things!! Rebecca’s in the UK, but she works with clients all over the world too.

You can find Rebecca at Shine on Raw or mentoring new Uncooking101 teachers. (Because YES! Our {raw food teacher training + mentorship} is now OPEN and at the lower intro rate, no less! With the lovely Rebecca personally helping lead the way to new teachers! OH so exciting!!)

The apples in this green juice tone down the bitter cleansing flavors of the kale and broccoli. It’s bright and nourishing green, but the flavor has enough sweetness to entice even juicing newbies.
