I believe that food is energy just like everything else, so we are eating the energy of the food, the vibration of the food, which we eventually become. Food we eat, thoughts we think, emotions we feel, word we speak, actions we take – they all equally and strongly effect us and everything around us.
When my tremendous fatigue, sluggishness, lack of focus and struggle to control my body weight got a name – Hashimoto’s disease – and rather unhealthy and at times sad and toxic experiences completely depleted me, I decided to radically change my lifestyle by searching for the best health enhancing ingredients and experimented with many different Superfoods and found out they were essential to detoxify and vitalize my body, nourish my mind, and help my soul flourish again.
On my detoxification journey, I decided to make a sharp turn in my career after working as a Sales Manager at multiple European beauty, wellness and fitness companies. First, I equipped myself with knowledge and certification in traditional Coaching for Nutrition and Fitness at SAFS & BETA, and the BSA Academy in Germany, among others. At a number of vegan culinary schools, raw dessert, superfood, gluten-/sugar-/diary-free and plant based chef courses, I learned and laid the foundation for the food designs that my body and mind was so craving for: the sweet yet healthy sins. Today, I’m a certified Human Potential Coach and private raw food Chef with profound knowledge on the plant-based, ketogenic diet and human potential development.
I am on a mission to inspire people to lead healthy and vital lives by sharing my own experience captured in creative, artful and delicious food designs. I am open for collaborations to travel for creative opportunities to share my passion through pop-up events, catering, private chef, consulting and recipe development with an offering based on high-vibe, local, raw & plant-based food experiences for private clients, yoga & mindfulness retreats or restaurant owners to renew their menus.
To me, being healthy is not just about eating the right thing; it’s about having the right mindset, living in the right environment, being surrounded by the right people, and being at home in a body full of vitality, which enables me to be the best version of myself. For that, one needs to detoxify and tweak their lifestyle. I did it. I sweetened-up my life with beautiful relationships and projects, Vitanja being one of them. Having a sweet tooth and serious health constraints made me insanely creative. So creative that I found a way to design recipes that are not only delicious and easy to make, but also super healthy, so I can indulge without getting any brain fog, bloating or guilty feelings! Just the opposite: my indulgent breakfasts and dinners give me an amazing energy boost that makes me feel unstoppable at work and in sport!
I like to think of food as of pleasure and an energy source at the same time. Oh, and aesthetics matters just as much as nutrition itself!
If you have ever done a detox or a cleanse, you know how frustrating it is to get back to the initial stage after several weeks, when wheat and processed sugar products call your name from the supermarket shelf. I bet you know what I mean! I did lots of detoxification and found that getting back to the “old version of Anja” was very, very frustrating. Not anymore though.
I created an approach that is sustainable and helps me stay in a high-performance state. It’s been several years now that I’ve enjoyed lasting high energy, a sharp mind and good mood. I have experienced the impact of food, and I integrated my knowledge into a holistic approach for self-development and improvement. And so I’ve turned my journey into the Vitanja lifestyle, which I hope will let you experience the vital and high-performance, or what we call “vitanized”, life!
I LOVE designing food experiences and healthy recipes using the best products available, making them look awesome, customizing them to my client needs and habits, and seeing them getting closer to their best version of themselves. Would you like to get vitanized as well?
I would love to hear from you!
