Born in Bulgaria, raised in South Africa, and now residing in Canada, Neviana grew up understanding the importance of fresh food as it was enjoyed from her grandparents’ backyard. After moving to Canada, Neviana realized her passion for healthy cooking.
Neviana continued on this path to better nutrition by attending countless seminars on healthy eating and lifestyle changes while living in Calgary and Toronto. During this time, she discovered food is a very important aspect of ones lives that can help heal numerous ailments by a simple change in eating habits. She believes bringing together diet, lifestyle and mindfulness is a power that can move mountains. You cannot be good at one and leave the rest behind. After 10 years of continued self-teaching and overcoming a few health struggles, Neviana continues to apply her knowledge to her everyday life, which she now shares with her customers, husband and two beautiful children.
Neviana’s passion is to help people create a full circle in their life by eating well, being kind to themselves and exercising. Currently she is expanding her knowledge by traveling all around the world by attending seminars, cooking classes and enjoying different cuisines.
Established in December of 2012, Carrots n’ Dates began with an array of very simple vegan, gluten free deserts and raw energy bars. With a seemingly overnight success, Neviana’s dream has evolved into a wide range of ready cooked meals, wholesome salads and raw deserts that are now available for sale at the cafe.
