The glimmer of Innocent Indulgence began with a little girl in footie pajamas making muffins, who had to stand on a chair just to reach the counter. Over the years, owner and chef Alisha Chasey’s love of chocolate, sweets and baking took her from 4-H, winning Best of Class and First Place for her desserts (in 2 states), to a blossoming interest in health. She earned her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Nutrition, became a Registered Dietitian and Certified Nutrition Specialist, then an Associate Raw Foods Chef. Her professional, clinical experience with dialysis and a comprehensive cancer care clinic began showing Alisha the real-life impact of nutrition and lifestyle on people’s short and long-term health. It really hit home when she began facing her own persistent health issues, finally diagnosed as “chronic fatigue.” After finding no real solutions through traditional medicine, she turned to nutrition. But, as a self-proclaimed “dessert queen,” she quickly felt deprived and dissatisfied, as she faced transforming her “sweet-tooth” eating and dealing with numerous food allergies. She soon discovered through her journey in the kitchen, experimenting with every kind of “—free” diet, vegan and raw foods, juicing, cleansing and more, that true health and wholeness come from making choices on every level – physical, emotional, and spiritual. Innocent Indulgence was birthed out of Alisha’s passion to help others experience radiant, healthy living, live out their destinies and love their life… while eating with “all of the yum and none of the guilt” every step of the way.
Alisha loves using dessert to promote the yummy-ness of balanced, plant-focused eating. She’s put nutrition and great taste in perfect harmony with her rich, creamy cheesecakes and moist, chewy cookies made from raw, whole-food ingredients that nourish the body all free of wheat, dairy, soy, egg and refined sugar. For a season, Innocent Indulgence desserts were shipped nationwide, available throughout Arizona Whole Foods Markets and New Frontier’s Market and local restaurants. Living healthy and feeling good has never been sweeter or more satisfying! You really can…indulge innocently!
She’s now focused on sharing the secrets she’s learned and experienced for wellness and healing in one-on-one and group sessions, helping you make healthy, daily, do-able and delicious.
