Songwriter/Producer Margarita Restrepo is the art director, founder, and editor-in-chief of Naked Food Magazine.  She is the leading Naked Food Chef, author of the Naked Food eCookbook, co-Author of the upcoming Master Plants Cookbook, and the developer of many of the naked food recipes. She is certified in plant-based nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center of Nutrition Studies and Cornell University, and holds a double major degree in Graphic Arts and Marketing from Florida Atlantic University.

She is an advocate for educating the world about a sustainable, healthy, enlightened, and kinder way of living through a non-toxic and simple lifestyle medicine.  After losing her boyfriend and music partner to a stage IV brain cancer (GBM) in January 2012, she felt the responsibility to help as many people as possible, including herself, to understand the importance of nutrition in the development or reversal of diseases.  Following a plant-based diet helped decrease the size of her boyfriend’s terminal tumors by 25 percent in 3 months. He was given 10-30 days to live after diagnosis.  She had also been diagnosed with anxiety attacks, cystic fibrosis, and a severe iodine deficiency, before following the Naked Food Diet.

I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change.  I am changing the things I cannot accept.
– Margarita Restrepo

Naked Food Magazine was created to honor her boyfriend’s valorous and courageous experience with terminal cancer, as well as to honor everyone who has passed from this disease. Learn more about her story and inspiration.

    Dear Margarita, it’s beautiful. The message, the art, the food, the color, the story, the people. My eyes fill with happy rain as i write this note and I’m swelling with excitement for life while reading the magazine and surfing the web site. So inspiring. It resonates within. Some times it’s as if I don’t even have to read, so much leaps off the pages. It’s beautiful. Your values and vision and excitement shine thru it all.

    Today while reading the new spring magazine, I was carried in thought to a desire of creating a beautiful kitchen with a fresh produce stand built on top of the counters with automatic mist keeping them delightful. Loaded with wonderful veggies. Just to look at them in their setting would be energizing. Beside it is my amazing juicer, basking in a sun lit room. (carefree smiles)

    To your joy and success,
    Rod

    • Dear Ron, it is absolutely an honor to have you as a reader and to receive this message from you. There is a lot of heart put into the pages of Naked Food, and I am filled with joy to know that it comes across. This magazine is only a way to give a voice to the amazing people who have done so much for us by bringing the message of Food as Medicine to the world. The magazine belongs to all of us because the information affects all of us. What a beautiful thought you had! Yes! Count me in that picture as well! There is nothing more beautiful than to be surrounded by life, nature, and tons of colorful and living foods! <3 :)

    Yes :) surrounded by that, connected with people who desire life, and live their values, honoring them in mind and expression. You are in that picture ☀️! The naked magazine does belong to us all, only because you have made it so (,,,).

    Sharing this feels great. I think it’s because the love for life is felt so strong and the journey towards amazing health in mind, body and purpose is of highest value. No doubt we could talk of food, Gerson, transformation, outdoors, nature, awareness of it all, within and without, un-hijacking the life smothered in pain..yeah.
    LOL Margarita, I just want to go trail hiking now.
