MEET THE AMAZING / INSPIRATIONAL AMEE
FROM LOVE RAW TREATS

we love her so much, and are so excited that she’s coming onboard as our
health + healing contributor


Rewind back to 2014 and Amee was hiding in her pantry cupboard at home, eating dairy milk chocolate and desperately trying to get through the day.

She’d had a series of miscarriages, one ectopic pregnancy and a failed IVF cycle. Parasites were thriving in her gut and her anxiety was so bad she could barely hold a conversation. “Even the simple act of walking was hard for me. I was turning to high-sugar foods to keep me going but, of course, they weren’t helping. I went to the doctors again and again, trying to understand what was wrong with me, but there seemed to be no clear solution,” she explains.

“I had a little boy who needed his mum, a husband who needed his wife but I couldn’t help anyone, let alone myself. All I knew was that something had to change.”

Thankfully, at a Theta Healing Course, something did change. She met Patrice Corrie {pictured with her above}, who has become Amee’s friend, and who shifted the course of Amee’s life. Through Patrice, Amee addressed her gluten and dairy intolerances and met some amazing holistic doctors including Ameeta Gajjar, Alison Parsons and Sara Winchester. Surrounded by these women she started to heal herself.

“I still wanted to treat myself every now and then so I started playing around with making raw treats that were dairy, gluten and sugar-free; delicious snacks I could eat while still looking after myself.”

One of the major steps she took on her healing journey was to clean the parasites out of her gut, and for that she had to go sugar free. She says she hasn’t  looked back, “Saying goodbye to dairy, gluten and refined sugars has been one of the best decisions of my life. I feel so good and clear in the head now it is almost hard to imagine how foggy and lost I felt before.”

“Before I started to heal, I couldn’t wait to get into bed at night, to shut everything out and retreat from the world. I’d wake up in the mornings, curled in the fetal position, full of dread about the day ahead. Being awake in the day was a stress – I was surviving, not living. Now I go to bed excited about tomorrow. Even waking up feels exciting. There is lightness in my life, a joy that wasn’t there and the change in my diet has contributed enormously to this.”

She still wanted to treat herself every now and then, and started playing around with making raw treats that were dairy, gluten and sugar-free; delicious snacks she could eat while still looking after herself. “And wow, who knew – I certainly didn’t – how much I would LOVE creating and making raw treats like peanut snickers and hazelnut cocoa fudge biscuits. They tasted amazing and were good for me.”

A friend suggested Amee start making raw treats for her theta wellbeing course student, and she then she started supplying her raw treats to a couple of cafes, and all of a sudden Love Raw Treats was born.

Now she sell her treats at The Beaches Markets in Warriewood, through her online store and for private orders and events.

All her treats {pictured below} are made with love, using the finest ingredients – mostly organic – hamdmade by Amee.
