It is based on a method of living developed by Kurtis & Rache Brand meaning Raw + Cooked food: Ra’Co.
We believe it is the good with the bad, the play with the work, and the healthy with the unhealthy. When you mix it all together you get all you need to have a sustainable, spectacular, and long life.
Since her early 20’s, Rache was a self-guided prisoner of work, but found freedom in the kitchen.
Kurt spent half a lifetime in search of contentedness. At a Zen Monastery in LA, he found raw food.
Rache and Kurt both attended Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore, MD at the same time, but never met. Through their educational background and their interest in raw food, they came together in Ithaca, NY.
Together they have created a balanced life based on the principals of their diet and called it Ra’Co Life.
Take food for an example: We look at a meal as something which offers taste, texture, nutrition, fulfillment, energy and variety. The key take aways being nutrition and fulfillment.
- Nutrition is primarily found in raw fruits and vegetables, seeds, nuts – a plant based diet.
- Fulfillment is our history and our familial traditions, things that we are used to consuming and enjoy eating.
The two become the balance of a complete meal: its a realistic way of eating.
Apply this formula to any other element of your life and you will have the perfect balance.
