Kirsty Wright, also known as Kirsty Hawkshaw (before she married Tim Wright), is no stranger to raw food. At the age of 19 she was struck down with a serious bout of glandular fever and was very lucky to chance upon holistic naturopath Dr Shyam Singha, whose orders were to first detox by carrying out a grape fast for 1 week – 7 pounds of grapes and hot water – and then eat nothing but raw food for the following month. Kirsty was soon cured from her illness, which was later diagnosed as Hashimotos thyroiditis and found a new lease of life and wellness.
“For years I just felt frustrated, struggling with intolerances and sensitivity to chemicals, also my diet was terrible before I discovered the amazing healing qualities of plant based foods rich in life giving enzymes and vitality – I just could not believe that eating the right kind of food can make you feel so incredible, full of energy and positivity, the only thing that made me feel well again was eating an 80% raw food diet” says Kirsty.
Kirsty lives by an 80% rule stating that “because sometimes it’s more convenient around family that way and I don’t like to offend people by saying “can't eat this and can't eat that”. Sometimes I just accept food because it’s a loving thing to do, isn’t it? I don't think it’s sensible to be too fanatical about anything. However, most of the time I prepare foods that are 100% raw and I love the creativity it brings into my life”. Also a recording artist, Kirsty achieved international fame with a hit record in 1992 called ‘It’s a Fine Day’, and travelled the world, often talking about raw food in interviews, some of which are online. Now with 3 young children and with the support of her family, Kirsty is ready embark on a new path of teaching the delights of raw food.
