Description

Raw Food is quickly becoming a very popular way of eating, not only does it provide essential nutrients, fibre and is easy on our digestive system - but now in our modern world raw food is taking on an all new level of excellence, with amazing simple and gourmet recipes that are not only tasty and delicious, but also amazingly healthy and nutritious.

I have put together a beginners course that looks at some basic recipes and kitchen staples, that can be built upon and incorporated into your lifestyle - no matter where you stand at the moment.  A lot of the recipes in my course can be used with cooked food, sneaked into family meals, as well as stand alone.  Learn and master the basics of Raw Food Preparation and feel confident that you are providing yourself and your family the best nutrition whereever possible.

My hope is that armed with some basic skills and ideas, you can incorporate raw foods into your diet and grow at your own pace into a new world of health and vitality.  Once you are comfortable and confident with these foods you can then take it further and incorporate more and more healthy raw foods into your lifestyle.  Along with raw food you can explore vegan and plant based foods as you begin your journey to health.  

In my course I will go through in depth how to shop and fill your fridge & pantry, as well as showing you the equipment you will need to get started.  I will take you step by step through over 40 videos recipes and I will also give you a pdf download of the recipes at the end of each section.  Recipes ranging from breakfast cereals, breads, cultured foods & drinks, soups, burgers and mouth watering deserts, including 2 delicious ice cream recipes.

At the end of my course I have put together a bonus presentation with some information on the plant based and vegan lifestyle, to give you a better understanding of my mantra "Healthy Mind, Healthy Body, Healthy Earth", which outlines why a vegan lifestyle is not only good for your health, but it is also critical for our environment and the peace and compassion needed for the animals.

Not only that, I have also included 2 Bonus PDFs, that I have put together from my live raw classes - which includes more information on Raw Food and contains more Bonus recipes.

Want to feel fantastic, want to start your learning journey into raw food, then lets get STARTED !!!!
