I recently met Karyn at her Karyn's raw vegan bistro and beauty place in Chicago.
All I can say, she is amazing! Full of radiating energy, beautiful, happy, and authentic in her believes.
Trust me, she looks even younger than on the picture at 64! Yes, 64 y.o.!
KARYN CALABRESE is the sexagenarian who opened (according to Karyn) America's first raw restaurant in 1992 in Chicago of all places. Since then, business-headed Calabrese has created something of a raw health and wellness empire that encompasses a shop, spa, three restaurants, supplement and nutritional ranges and makeup. As the walking talking poster-woman for the lifestyle she promotes, packages and sells, I buy into it wholesale. She radiates energy from her honed figure and crease-less, youthful face, has the lithe body of a dancer 30 years her junior, hasn't been ill in decades and possesses an earnest passion that would put most university-aged idealist to shame.
