Meet Chef Amen

Chef Amen, based out of Oakland California, is the creator of an Indigenous Peoples Tribal Vegan Foods Business Association, Earth Science Foods. He’s also a personal vegan chef, and food coach currently working on his first vegan cookbook out spring 2018 called “Eye Am The Enlightened Vegan.”




“I have been consuming moringa for about 9 years. moringa is a plant that grows and thrives in hot arid dry climates where there is less water, so this plant’s leaves contain amounts of water which rehydrates the body physical. As a vegan I not only consume plant-based foods because I am hungry, I’m also trying to satisfy my appetite and fill my body with all the minerals and nutrients the moringa plant truly does provide. Moringa can be made quickly as a fast morning smoothie, put into hot cereal, or drank as a tea.”
