About Us

Raw Food Central was a vision of Curtis Griffing over 30 years ago after he reversed his severe crippling rheumatoid arthritis just by changing what he ate from a meat based, dairy, bread, grains and pasta cooked food Standard American Diet, to a raw plant based diet.

After his complete recovery from his debilitating disease and upon discovering many other health benefits of the raw plant based diet Curtis started to counsel others at his home and by phone eventually teaching larger education and demonstration classes at remote locations.

As business grew a permanent store front location was opened at 446 Broad Street in Windsor, Connecticut, where a raw center was created offering everything raw under one roof.  Along with Raw Food Education and Preparation classes there are many other activities and happenings; Raw plant based dinners, Movie nights, Raw support groups, Organic produce coop, Potlucks, invited speakers and more. Also products like Juicers, High speed blenders, Water distillers, Dehydrators and other small food preparation appliances can be purchased at this location as well as related books on health and healthy living.

Now over 30 years later Curtis is the proud father of 3 wonderful children Wynter, Brianna and Windsor.

"I am especially blessed with my daughter Brianna who is beyond caring and compassionate towards others and would give up her own self needs for the welfare of others. I am also honored to be working with my 100% Raw sons Wynter and Windsor. They are devoted to helping people learn to become disease and obesity free simply by changing ones diet from the Standard American Diet (SAD) to a raw plant based diet." Curtis said.

Educational classes with food demonstrations are what make this raw vegan diet and lifestyle work. During each class raw meals are made and sampled to show how easy and great tasting it can be to eat this way. Regular monthly potlucks along with delicious tasting meals combined with weekly raw support groups provide support to keep you on track. "We want you to succeed and we won't leave you hanging" 

Several times a year a 9 week course is offered and the results are amazing! Twenty, thirty, forty pounds gone, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, multiple sclerosis, asthma, chronic fatigue, rheumatoid arthritis, acid reflux, depression, insomnia, thyroid, diverticulitis, skin problems gone, no more medications, most all diseases disappear by the body's natural ability to heal itself if given the proper nourishment from a raw plant based diet.

Curtis Griffing suffered from severe rheumatoid arthritis and was given no hope for a cure, only to be told that stronger drugs and artificial joints would help him better live with it. "I didn't want to learn how to live with this terrible disease, I wanted to learn how to live without it" Curtis said. "I was determined to find the reason why arthritis in its many forms attacks the body and was even more determined to find out how to be free of it." He said.  Curtis has been living an arthritis free life for over 30 years. "I'm so active now you would never know I was so crippled then. No drugs, supplements, treatments or gimmickry were used to get me where I am today; completely arthritis free".

 Curtis is known for his culinary delights using raw plant based foods.  We first like to switch you over to raw with more conventional tasting raw meals, then we encourage you to eat more simply without sacrificing taste using the popular Low Fat Raw Vegan 80/10/10 approach. The benefits are outstanding!  "We always enjoy seeing the happy smiles on those who have had doubts about this diet after they have had a delicious taste.", Curtis said.

 The HealthPath classes at Raw Food Central that the Griffing's teach have brought more than just better health to people, it has brought an appreciation for life to those who have changed to a raw plant based diet. A raw food lifestyle brings about many freedoms in one's life. Freedom from disease, freedom from medication, freedom from emotional confusion, when you have great health the stars are the limit.
