My name is Dominika. Since 2 years I’m working for Atreea – organic supplier and exclusive distributor of Big Tree Farms.

What is your relationship with health and food?
I love healthy lifestyle and I believe that food is the part of it. I try to eat as healthy us it is possible for me.
When, How and Why did your interest for health food start?
I started to be interested in healthy eating few years ago. I have been traveling in USA and I ate a lot of fast food. After few weeks I got very bad health issues and I needed to fix this as quick as possible. I was feeling horrible. At this time I have met one Lady and she gave me this book about raw foodism. It was first time when I started to think about what I’m eating. It changed a lot in my life. I've changed a lot of my eating habits and I became much healthier and happier. This was the start!
