“The Pachavega Level One Course dispelled the myths of living foods prep and lifestyle. It’s not just what you eat, but how nutrition can influence your physical and emotional state that truly matters. Danielle Arsenault is a passionate and inspiring teacher who has infused this desire to live life to its fullest in me and many others.”

The way the course is structured really heps to maximize the time for optimum absorption of the information. I have learned skills here that I will use for the rest of my life. Thank you Danielle for creating this inspirational course! ”
“Before coming to Pachavega I had been transitioning to plant-based of life. It was a slow process because I wanted to do it responsibly, nutritionally. Taking this course not only jump started the process, it accelerated the process by giving me tools and education to know how to eat a nutrient dense menu. Totally worth every penny and an investment in myself from a health perspective!”

As Seen In: 

Who Are We? 

The Story of Pachavega 

Growing up in the suburbs of a prairie town in Saskatchewan, Canada, I was exposed to all the comforts of middle class living with a wonderful family who has always supported my crazy ideas. When I was 19, a friend of mine and I hitchhiked across Canada – from Regina to Newfoundland and back on a whim. That summer opened my mind to the incredible human race and my desire to see others thrive and live in their true happiness ... we also got into a little bit of trouble! How was I, little ol' me, going to help people thrive? I suppose the entrepreneurial spirit in me was always bubbling away in the recesses of my inner self. I made a line of perfume and walked around hip neighborhoods selling the little bottles. While living in South Korea, I collaborated with the lovely Jessica Perlaza and co-created a vegan, gluten-free cookbook series inspired by seasonal, whole foods called The Kitchens of Pinch and Dash. For almost 10 years, I traveled the world and discovered isolated corners of over 25 countries (and counting). Eventually I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts and then a post-grad degree in the Master of Teaching Program at the University of Calgary. I also studied a Living Foods Lifestyle Education Certification from the Ann Wigmore Institute in Puerto Rico, a Raw Food Educator Certificate from the Raw Foundation Culinary Arts Institute in Vancouver, a certificate in Permaculture Design from Sadhana Forest in Haiti and then became a certified Colon Hydrotherapist. 

Yet, in 2011, a near-death rock climbing accident changed my relationship with the world, and my perspective of life as I knew it, not the certificates I had garnered over the years. I came to the realization that we are truly blessed to be alive. After the accident, I found myself rapidly healing with no lingering pains whatsoever. And I attribute this vitality to the food that I was eating. Many of my little projects over the years had been rooted in grass and they had one thing in common – although entertaining, they didn’t really, truly empower people to make lasting changes in their lives that would enable them to thrive, to give them the tools and inspire their journey towards optimal health and happiness. It was time for me to do something bigger than myself and really be the change I wanted to see. 

And that’s why I founded Pachavega Living Foods Education. It is my deep desire to educate the world about the healing power of plant-based whole foods and support a healthy lifestyle rooted in compassion for the planet. I have discovered endless combinations and hidden secrets in nutrition – especially in raw, living foods over the last 12 years. It is my calling to educate myself in depth about the healing power of whole foods and a healthy lifestyle so in turn, I can share my insights to empower you!
"It is my deep desire to educate the world about the healing power of plant-based whole foods."
