We had the good fortune of connecting with Giselle Shah and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Giselle, can you tell us about an impactful book you’ve read and why you liked it or what impact it had on you?
Becoming supernatural, by Doctor Joe. Dispenza! The book that changed my life & placed me on the path of my current business. Changing my perception about life & how to master ourselves, our brain, thoughts, emotions & reactions! In order to be successful in life, we need to master our minds, & I always strive to learn more daily about how human system operates so I can better navigate my mind towards what I want in life.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Giselle’s Vegan Kitchen was created after my recovery from a severe Anorexia. After three years of battling with eating disorder, I hit rock bottom & made a decision to seek help & turn my life around, but it was because of what I went trough that I started my path into health & wellness & because of that I leaned many things about how our body operates & the food we consume, & the effect of mind & body connection through the way we nourish our bodies. I am forever grateful for my Anorexia & the experience & knowledge I gained from those years. As an ethical Vegan who loves sweets, I wanted a place where I was comfortable with every ingredient in my dessert. So I created my own recipes. The magical combination of deliciousness & Health. My first priority & Mission at Giselle’s Vegan Kitchen is to create Plant-based, Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free, Corn & Soy Free, tasty baked goods! Cutting out all the toxic ingredients that are found in many of our foods. Just because it’s Vegan, doesn’t mean it’s “Healthy”. Highly processed & acidic ingredients are not beneficial to our bodies, it destroys how the system operates. At Giselle’s we only use ingredients that are created by the loving Mother Nature. She has already given us everything we need in order to nourish our holy temple (our body) We are proud to be one of the top healthiest Vegan Bakeries in the nation! Starting a business has ups & downs, but it is within the challenges that the business grows. As a business owner with every circumstances you become wiser & more intelligent! I have personally experienced the transformation that took place in me after every lesson I learned.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love food & enjoy eating at unique places. As a Vegan, my favorite place to visit, is San Diego, CA, of course because of the many Vegan options! I love walking around La Jolla & driving around the City watching the buildings & nature. My two favorite places to eat there is Trilogy Sanctuary & Garden Of life. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Even thought the beginning of my journey was very lonely & no body believed in what I was doing, but I knew in every single cell of my being that I was on a right bath. It’s a knowingness when something is meant for you, it flows naturally! With that being said, I would like to thank the person who changed my life with his teachings, books & tools Doctor Joe. Dispenza. Every single day I would apply his teachings to better myself in business & grow into the best version of myself! To this day I still apply the same tools in my life & the results are astonishing!
