Meet Kristina Carillo-Bucaram, the founder of fully raw and rawfully organic.
After being in the hospital for frequent dehydration from hyperglycemia at the age of 18, Carillo-Bucaram decided to change her eating habits and adopt a raw vegan diet of raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. She eventually saw her hyperglycemia disappear as a result of her healthy lifestyle and was inspired to share it with others.
Carillo-Bucaram is so dedicated to her lifestyle that she started the Tuesday Farmers Market in Houston with some classmates when she was at school at Rice University. The influx of people attending the weekly Farmers Market made her realize the strong need for organic, affordable, freshly sourced produce in Houston. It was then that Carillo-Bucaram decided to start her company, Fully Raw, where she constantly publishes new educational material to YouTube, Instagram and other social networking sites. In addition to her informational company, its sister company, Rawfully Organic, provides healthy, fresh food for purchase.
At Cadillac, we celebrate those whose passion and vision have reshaped our city, our lives and our culture - including Carillo-Bucaram’s dedicated work to fresh produce and health education.
Her continuous passion makes her one of the innovative and driving persons shaping Houston.
