“The main reason I do what I do is because I like to make life enjoyable for every creature,” Deborah Stanton says of her many culinary undertakings. A chef who has worked in some of New York’s finest kitchens, Stanton ran her own namesake restaurant, Deborah - Life- Love - Food for over 9 years. Following a brain aneurysm over a year ago, and the resulting surgery, the irrepressible Stanton spent her recovery time devising a new way to nourish the masses. To this end she has created “FüD by Mo2v8r”. FüD stands for “Fitness ünited with Diet”, a line of frozen fruit and vegetable “power pouches” and an exercise program that includes rock-climbing and trapeze. She hasn't forgotten our animal companions, either. Her “Eco-Licious” raw food diet for Cats and Dogs features local and organic ingredients. “I’m just trying to help feed the world one creature at a time. I’m helping them keep their spirits and hopes high by giving them my gift of food and friendship.” -CB

Remember, these are in no particular order because we love them all!
