Shawanda Harrison, a Culinary Artisan, and founder of Holistic Alayé, better known as Shayola. She’s a big city girl living in a small-town world, here to share my love of all things natural and soul-full! As a child, she watched her mother and Bajan born grandmother “make miracles” in the kitchen,
from my preferred seat – under the kitchen table! She found her light there under the kitchen table, by the time she was fifteen, she knew her culinary skills would be her passion! Since then her appreciation for holistic health has fueled a deep passion for cooking and led to Holistic Alayé!
Over 15 years learning the food industry, refining recipes and unofficially introducing the concepts of health to friends and loved ones. She is also a 2017 graduate of the Afua Queen Sacred Woman University and is now a Certified Sacred Woman Practitioner, which has developed her culinary arts from a healing & rejuvenation aspect, (body). Currently, under the
tutelage of Dr. Jewel Pookrum, expanding consciousness to nurture the brain (mind) and Queen Esther Sarr, expanding consciousness to nurture our inner/higher being (spirit).
She is becoming a passionate expert ready to share in her knowledge to help others succeed in reaching wellness goals primarily through mindfulness, plant-based meals, and desserts, all of which promote weight management, illness management, and overall dis-ease prevention!
