Bill Hadikin is not only the owner of Rawthentic but it’s best customer. He has been enjoying vegan raw food since 2004 when he went through a personal journey discovering health in his life and lost over 50lbs of weight in the process while feeling amazing. “Don’t just eat it ‘cause it tastes good…learn why it is good for you at the same time.”
He is proud that everything is made fresh in house with real food…no fillers, preservatives, or refined food. The sauces made fresh every day, with nuts, seeds, cold pressed olive oil and hemp as the base. The Almond mylk is made fresh every day. Many people don’t know that most of the to-go containers, straws, cutlery are made with corn so they are biodegradable. The apple juice is cold pressed and unpasteurized so it is as if the apples were juiced right off the tree for our customer’s smoothies. All the smoothie boosters are actually real super foods that are unprocessed. Chia (perfect anti-oxidant and intestinal cleanser), Hemp Hearts (big protein boost), Goji (anti-oxidant and high in protein), Acai (high anti-oxidant and energy boost), Maca (energy boost) are a few of the boosters Rawthentic uses in its smoothies.
One of the most rewarding parts of this business for Bill is helping people not just eat healthy but learn about health. “I watched a nurse lose over 100lbs by changing her lifestyle. A lawyer around 60 years old accidently came into Rawthentic once, tasted the food, learnt a little about what we were about and lost over 50lbs pounds over the next year and started participating in triathlons for the first time in his life. A young student came in and while going to university maintained a healthy vegan diet, she lost weight and mentioned she had more energy for her studies.”
Bill enjoys making new recipes, providing health to the community and is grateful for the amazing people that work and eat at Rawthentic. He wants to have a Rawthentic in every community. If you see Bill, please stop him and tell him your story, he really wants to hear it. “See you at Rawthentic”
