David Sandoval has dedicated his life to providing whole, raw, green food products to the world and educating the masses about the importance of nutrition. At 17 years-old, David lost the Aunt who had raised him due to a poor, chemically-processed diet. With his passion for pure foods and preventative answers ignited, he embarked on a worldwide journey that allowed him to research alongside internationally-acclaimed industry leaders, such as Ann Wigmore, the mother of the “Living Foods Lifestyle.” Eager to make a difference, David launched his own business where he could make pure and premium food products with absolutely no artificial colors, artificial flavors, binders, fillers or genetically modified ingredients. His dedication to quality ingredients and the understanding of phytochemistry education led to the creation of his book, “The Green Foods Bible.” 20 years later, David continues to research and share his findings through lectures and The Dave Sandoval Academy of Learning.
