StacyMurilloName: Stacy Murillo

Associate Chef and Instructor Graduate of Living Light Culinary Institute

Stacy is a graduate of the Living Light Culinary Institute as a Certified Raw Chef/Instructor and was a Vibrant Living 2008 Rising Star Chef. Chef Stacy is raw food enthusiast and became interested in this lifestyle after encountering health issues that impacted her and her family. There seemed to be no real solution to the problems she and her family were encountering. She believed that she could make a change in the health of her entire family by changing the way she fed them. After doing research and reading any book she could get her hands on related to optimum health, it seemed that it always came back to raw foods. Armed with this new found knowledge, Stacy decided to take it to the next step and become a raw food chef/instructor.

Stacy’s current goals are to continue to expand her culinary skill and expertise and most importantly share this knowledge with others regardless of their current diet. Stacy believes that by having a predominantly whole food plant based diet (fruits and vegetables), improved health and vitality can be achieved.
