Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram is a member of the KB brigade because she’s an innovator in nutrition and a leader in the raw food movement. We both believe that you are what you eat (and drink).

FullyRaw is the creation of Kristina Carrillo-Bucaram, a pioneer in the organic food co-operative movement. The founder of the largest raw, organic produce co-operative in the U.S., she has been 100% raw for nearly 9 years and is a leading visionary in the raw movement across the nation.

She attended both Vanderbilt University and Rice University, graduating from Rice in 2009 with a triple major
in Kinesiology, specializing in Health Science and nutrition, and also dabbled into ceramics and voice. Since then, she has been heavily influential in the efforts to grow and bring awareness to our national efforts to raw food education and Organic Horticulture, Permaculture, and Co-operative Communities.

Kristina’s inspiration for being FullyRaw came after she was able to rid herself
of hyperglycemia at the age of 18, eating nothing but a low-fat raw vegan diet consisting solely of fresh fruits and vegetables with few nuts and seeds. After being a direct understudy of 20+ year raw food  juicing expert and consultant John Rose, she interned and worked under pioneer and movement visionary Dr. Douglas Graham at his health events in Seattle and in Costa Rica.

Before graduating from college, Kristina started a non-profit organization called Rawfully Organic. This organic produce co-operative in Houston, Texas grew from 12 people in her living room and currently feeds over 6000 families in the greater Houston area on a weekly basis. Rawfully Organic offers fresh, affordable produce and Kristina’s efforts focus on providing her community with the benefits of eating raw fruits and vegetables while making organic affordable for all. The nonprofit grosses more than 2 million per year and stays true to its mission to supply local Texas families with an abundance of organic produce to help them live a raw, vegetarian, or vegan lifestyle. To this day, the coop is 100% volunteer run.

Kristina makes a living by coaching and inspiring thousands of others to be FullyRaw.
