Karyn's Fresh Corner/ Karyn's Cooked/ Kayrn's on Green
Karyn Calabrese declares “she is not special”. Yet it is undeniable, she has a special gift...
Many people look at Karyn at 65 and assume she inherited a strong matriarchy. The facts are, however, that both her mother and grandmother died at ages younger than Karyn is now. With this seeming fate at hand, she sets out to prove her genetic heredity wrong. This is where her story begins.
Alone with two children to raise, she bought her first wheatgrass juicer and opened a new life of growth and prosperity with her first business, growing and distributing wheatgrass. More importantly this began her life-long exploration into the inter-connectedness between food and body and the ultimate attainment of self-insurance and inner peace.
Karyn had been a vegetarian for 12 years, but this was merely a first step leading towards a completely raw food diet. No doubt this is a tough life to come to. It is out of the “norm” and denies what we have
so long held as “truths”. To make this more feasible, Karyn opened her raw-foods restaurant, Karyn’s Fresh Corner, which was a thriving success.
She believes it is not enough to simply eat live foods but to cleanse the body of the strong, negative, anti-life foods still in the body. Today, Karyn teaches detoxification classes through the year to give these lessons to others.
This is where we find Karyn today. A 65 year old woman and “Raw Foodist of the Year” who lives the full, lively life she envisioned giving herself. And this is what, contrary to what she declares, does indeed make her special. She has created an all-encompassing environment of food, health, guidance and care where we can all participate in our own well being.
