Brenda Cobb founded the Living Foods Institute in Atlanta, Georgia in September 1999 just seven months after she was diagnosed with breast and cervical cancer. She refused the surgery and chemotherapy that her doctor recommended because she had seen her own family members and friends diagnosed with the same type of cancers try the traditional treatments and fail. Brenda set out on a journey to explore a natural way of healing and discovered Raw and Living Foods and Detoxification.
Hundreds of natural hair businesses, bloggers, meet up groups and soon to be naturals who probably never heard the name Bob Johnson can give thanks to the man who starting in 1991 went against all odds, opinions and deterrents in the face of a cosmetology industry and an all inclusive public that shunned natural hair, and brought forth a Natural Hair Salon, a Natural Hair Product Line, a Natural Hair Educational Seminar and a Natural Hair Convention that brought forth a Natural Hair Industry. None of these entities were nationally implemented, marketed or promoted under the umbrella of Natural Hair previous to Bob Johnson’s call to natural via the Natural Hair Show in the early nineties.

Black Vegetarian Queen Vida will soon be featured as the chef at Sadiq’s Bistro, a vegan restaurant opening in Southwest Atlanta in the near future. She has an inspiring story of becoming vegetarian, the power of the Creator, discovering an oil-less diet, and making a difference in her native country of Ghana.
She learned about being a vegetarian from the Hebrew Israelites. She went to their classes and they kept educating her about diet and making the transition into vegan food. It made sense to her and she decided to go on that journey in 1977. She would go in the kitchen and just do what The Creator said do. As a result of being obedient, she started creating a lot of different dishes.

Chef Byrd began her journey as a Vegan in 1997 while still in high school. She comes from a family of women who can throw down in the kitchen! So, creating and coming up with great recipes came naturally! After years of making food for friends for their private events she was motivated to start a catering company. Freedoms Garden was born in March of 2014! Chef Byrd had to hit the ground running because her unique raw gourmet entrees took off fast!
Selling out weekly and at all the summer festivals she attended! Although she's better known for her musical artistry as Songbyrd Jackson, she's also a new Chef on the scene that found a blessing in lovingly preparing affordable live healing foods. As a Reiki Master this chef also has a great understanding of food and how it effects our chi and chakra balance. A Natural Living Advocate and Food Researcher, she speaks and teaches at Grady Health Care and other facilities and schools about GMO's, food safety, and food preparation.
About Chef Byrd’s Food: I specialize in creating raw food recipes that first tantalizes your visual senses! I'm a foodie and love a plate of food that's colorful and magnetizing! I also like the "simple is best policy" when it comes to my recipes. I like to create live foods for the family on the go! Why should live food take hours or days to prepare? I teach and show my clients the magic you can create with just your 2 hands, a good knife, and a cutting board! Nutritiously delicious and, full of life! Thanks and Gratitude.
The food pictures are my raw chocolate mousse, raw banana pudding, and raw collard roll wraps and kale salad.
