Hi, I’m Kate Magic. I wrote the UK’s first raw food recipe book, Eat Smart Eat Raw, in 2002, and the world’s first superfood recipe book, Raw Magic, back in 2008. I have three sons, currently aged 21, 19 and 16, who I home educated, and raised on a raw vegan diet. I travel internationally teaching classes and workshops on the raw vegan lifestyle, and, last but not least, my company Raw Living is Europe’s leading resource for raw foods and superfoods.
I believe we are all on a journey in this life, and it’s a journey of self-love. It’s about stepping out of our programming, which is restrictive and limiting, and teaches us to play safe, act small, believe in scarcity, and believe that the world is a hostile and dangerous place. The real reason we are here is to not to accumulate possessions or power, but to learn to connect with who we truly are and what we want in our lives, what makes our hearts sing and our spirits soar. We need to understand that the universe loves it when we take risks, when we push ourselves beyond what we believe we can achieve. We need to appreciate that the universe is an abundant and entirely benevolent co-creator in our lives.
To me, food is one of the primary ways we can facilitate this magical journey. By choosing to honour our bodies and only put the best of what this planet has to offer inside of ourselves, we are exalting ourselves. I am passionate about seeking out the most life-giving, life-affirming foods on our planet and creating next-level dishes with them for myself, my family and my friends. I get so much joy from sharing this food and these ideas with as many people as I possibly can, and watching the transformations that occur as people realise possibilities and potentials that they hadn’t been able to see before they stepped onto this path.
On this site, you will find recipes, yes, but also my writing, and audio interviews with people I find inspiring. There is information about the different events and courses I run, and if you want to go shopping for the best quality raw and superfood produce you can find my store here.
Lastly, I am as passionate about music as I am about food. Music has an incredible ability to soothe our souls and elevate our spirits. Music and Food are my two medicines: when life feels like it’s not going how I want it to go, I turn to them to find my inner peace and restore my faith in humanity. I have a radio show on Soho Radio London every other Wednesday 8-10 am, and you can find past shows over on Mixcloud.

What They Say
“I just want to send you my heart felt thanks for the work you do. You are our trail blazer, thank you.
It’s your writing I love the most, when the world feels like such a crazy place to be, and I am not articulate or confident enough to say how I feel, you step in and speak the words that need to be said, to remind us there is another way, and Love and creativity IS the path. I love the work you do Kate. Keep shining beautiful lady, the Earth needs you. You are an inspiration to us all.” Tracey
“I have all your books, and I love the recipes but there is so much more to you than that. You are clearly a deep thinker with so much heart and compassion. Just so you know, you are so valuable to so many of us. You’ve always inspired me.” Heather

I’m looking through your site and have been so touched, every recipe is so full of love – the way you write, the ingredients you use, your photos, style, how much love you give and how many people you touch. You are so generous and have a huge heart.” Anna
