Jamie Graber developed a passion for raw food after college. Raw food was how she found balance. She moved to Los Angeles, where she threw herself into everything there was to know about the Raw Food Diet. She I studied to be a raw-food practitioner while working under Juliano Brotman, a pioneer in the raw food movement and owner of Juliano’s Raw, a restaurant in Santa Monica. She left Juliano’s Raw in 2007 to become the manager for Euphoria Loves Rawvolution, a raw vegan restaurant and retail shop in Santa Monica. Here is where She learned to create cleanses while also developing a partnership with YogaWorks, a popular yoga company, where she was able to teach clients how to balance their workout regimes with healthy diet and cleanse workshops. This led Jamie to create a menu of raw juices, shakes and soups for my clients, while also leading discussions and personal coaching throughout the entire experience.
In 2010 Jamie moved back to the East Village. She soon discovered there was a void in the market for a well-designed, comfortable raw vegan restaurant with approachable food for people with all eating preferences: strict vegans and those looking for healthy alternatives from time to time. She finally took the ultimate leap and opened her own restaurant, which I playfully named “Gingersnap’s Organic,” after her own curly, red hair. At Gingersnap’s Organic, Jamie maintains her dedication to using high quality, organic, sustainable and environmentally friendly products. "It is work I love and which brings me much passion and I’m hopeful that my journey will inspire others to seek out the kind of healthy balance I finally found with food."
