About the author:
Dawn has been interested in healthy living all her life and, in 2005, started sharing her healthy "finds" on her website Dawn of a New Day (www.dawnofanewday.com). There she reviews books, product, practices and events that support a healthy mind, body, spirit and planet. Her unique and interesting insights and humor, as well as her honesty, have earned her many loyal readers and friends. For those who like her perspective, she's their filter for what works in the LOHAS segment. Additional topics on her website are Children, Dawn's Brilliant Ideas, Events, Humor, Interviews, Movies and Music, all drawn from her experience on her own spiritual and healing journey.
She was always very healthy and having grown up with a garden of fresh fruits and vegetables in her backyard, she would eat voraciously while picking fresh strawberries, raspberries and peas. Always wanting to eat healthier, her dietary journey took her from a mostly conventional diet with lots of those garden grown fruits and veggies to eating 80% raw foods.
While wanting to eat 100% raw foods she was constantly challenged by her desire for dessert. Once she learned the basics of raw food preparation, she was off and running, creating recipes with raw cacao beans (chocolate), nuts, seeds, fruit and dates to replicate her favorite desserts and those her family liked best. Her favorite is Raw Chocolate Fudge which gets better with every preparation.
While sharing her raw chocolate with friends and answering their questions about her methods, she was prompted to create a class to teach raw chocolate basics and desserts to all who wanted to learn. Her classes have been hugely successful with demands for their conversion to DVD. With many more raw food recipes she's created to rave reviews, she's planning on crafting further raw recipe books to share her secrets with the public.
As a writer, Dawn discovered and co-created a like-minded partnership with New Visions Magazine in Philadelphia. From January 2006 to November 2008 Dawn wrote articles and interviews with top Healthy Mind, Body and Spirit authorities and teachers such as Deepak Chopra, don Miguel Ruiz, Brian Weiss, Marianne Williamson, Mary Occhino and Thomas Moore. She continues to interview celebrities, write children's books, raw recipe books, reviews and inspirational short stories.
Through her work she has been dubbed the "Martha Stewart of the New Age".
