Conversations with the Inspiring Sarah Jones

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sarah Jones.

Sarah, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I was born in a tiny village in Germany. My mom was a fantastic chef and inspired me to love food. We spent our childhood walking through the forest looking for berries and mushrooms, planting and harvesting our own garden and walking to the farms next door to witness sheeps giving birth and walking home with fresh cow milk.

When I turned 22, I opened my first restaurant. It was a great success, I loved creating recipes and earned my first reward from Moët & Chandon soon. I met my husband (who is German-American) a few years later and we moved around Europe due to his athletic career. I gave birth to five children which were and is the biggest joy of my life. Passionate about the vegan lifestyle the love to Los Angeles was a natural fit. This year, I fulfilled my lifelong dream of owning a rescue farm. Currently, we have two miniature horses and four dogs. I am living a vegan lifestyle for a very long time but recently became a completely raw vegan. Last year, I completed a plant-based course to become a certified nutritionist. My biggest passion is studying how whole foods and plant-based nutrition can prevent and reverse disease.

I am currently working on a vegan cookbook with an emphasis on raw living foods, to make a transition for families easier.

I studied nutrition with best-selling author Dr. T. Colin Campbell at Cornell University.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I am enjoying this huge vibe of veganism. It’s very encouraging to see how so many people, also women, make a career in this new scene. Ten years ago, it was a challenge to survive and fight for living a different lifestyle. Nowadays, there’s a lot of support out there.

What should we know about your work? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I just finished my own challenge of eating nothing but raw vegan food for six months. It was amazing to see the different results. Being diagnosed with cancer three times in my life and overcoming it with lifestyle changes is a huge advantage if you want to support other people. My goal is to be able to help others with their disease. I was diagnosed with three different autoimmune diseases and know now that I was able to heal myself. I look at myself as being totally healthy now at this stage in my life.

Do you have any advice for finding a mentor or networking in general? What has worked well for you?
I always have a longing to learn from others. I think it is very important to leave your work environment and reach out to other areas to improve your visions.

I love listening and reading from Wayne Dyer or other mental teachers. Improving your own spiritual growth and looking beyond your specialty helps you crossing over and reaching more people.
