Rebekah Ortiz | Founder

I come from a large Puerto Rican family that values the medicinal power of plants, the resiliency of growing your own food and expressing much gratitude to God for the gifts that we bear.

My journey to a plant based lifestyle began at just 12 years old. I began to explore the connection between what we eat, how we feel and the steps needed to make conscious decisions. The process of growing, preparing and consuming whole foods is an extremely valuable and yet complex system. Today, sourcing ingredients can be difficult due to the industrialization of agriculture.

This is why Detox Dandy is a strong advocate for closed loop communities – a vital component of sustainability. Seek local farmers or dining establishments that provide seasonal, organically grown and ethically harvested foods. By simply localizing your support to nonprofits and small businesses, you promote prosperity throughout your community.  Over a decade of plant based eating and wellness principles have empowered me to pursue this concept.
