At Moody Mango, I create highly nutritious, plant-based cuisine with a focus on raw living foods. Catering for events and retreats around the globe, providing private chef services, and hosting workshops - I help my clients to align with nature and live to their truest potential.
All Moody Mango ingredients are selected to work in synergy with your healing and enhance your beauty, brain power, body and spirit at the deepest level. All of my dishes are vegan, gluten-free, organic wherever possible, and most importantly, made with LOVE.
I'm Francesca Paz, a plant-based chef, reiki practitioner and energy healer. When I'm not in the kitchen you'll find me on my boat in Hackney where I also hold energy sessions.
For me, connection to nature is connection to ourselves.
My philosophy is ‘consciousness over convenience’. I have a passion for serving others and
cultivating community through nourishing and ethical foods. My food
preparation rituals are always done with love. I understand cooking as an
energy exchange - so my daily practices of mindfulness, intention setting,
yoga and meditation infiltrate my food.
Moody Mango was born out of my experiences growing up around addiction
and later trying to balance a hectic lifestyle immersed in London's “party
scene”. By 2009 I realised I needed to heal the damage I had done to my
body and mind. As soon as I took a step in the direction of healing I met
teachers along the way who taught me that the fatigue, skin breakouts
and the anxiety I was experiencing were a by-product of not taking care of my
inner body, and energy. I detoxed intensely, lived on organic farms in Ecuador, healed with
and learnt from shamans in Peru, and went direct to experts to study nutrition
and raw cuisine in London, California and Australia. I studied morden psycology and now combine all in personilzed programmes or one on one energy sessions.
It starts with a choice, unlocking your magic.
I have seen it many times with clients and with my own journey.
I saw radical changes in my body and habits. These live, medicinal foods
changed me from the inside out. I realised that our relationship with food is
not about the food, its about our relationship with ourselves. I realised I had a
lot of emotions around the way I ate, and by unblocking those I unlocked a
part of myself. I ate primarily fruits, vegetables and legumes. And foods that
would serve as hormonal adaptogens. My medical stats read biologically
younger than they had ten years prior. It was through simple daily practices
that big changes were made. I shared my food with friends from my tiny kitchen.
This evolved into pop-up supper clubs, and Moody Mango was born.
A decade later, I still have an insatiable thirst for knowledge. The world is
craving more delicious, healthy, plant based food, and Moody Mango bridges
the gaps between alchemy, biology and deliciousness. Every day, I witness
people’s happiness as they have that first bite, first sip, first conversation and
they realise these medicinal foods really do work and they are life changing. I
want nothing more than to share this experience and education with as many
people as I can. Diet is a powerful tool that can help you awaken, receive and
increase life force energy. When we think of healthy eating, we typically
assume that there will be weight loss, enhanced glow and increased strength,
but these changes pale in comparison to the paradigm shift that begins with
I’m so glad you’re here...
