Chef Teton - 68 Years Young.
"This picture was spontaneously taken with an Iphone by a friend October 6, 2012, fresh out of the water dripping wet, no air-brushing.
It took me a lifetime to learn everything I have about nutrition. I discovered through a vibrant path that started with learning "Raw Living" foods in 1990. Pounds drifted away and I became in love with all the amazing foods I got to eat. Then I learned more!
Through the next 20 years I went on to devour everything I could about nutrition, health trends with the emerging natural foods industry. I have had the pleasure with working with the best health professionals and chefs in the world.
But my body and the results others achieved were my best teachers. From "Raw Living" foods I went on to incorporate the best of "Cooked Foods" and blended them with the ancient traditions of Ayurvedic cooking and "Cultured and Fermented" foods.
People raved about my skin and remarked that I had reversed the signs of aging. I became free! Now you can too. It is simple, fun and rewarding!
I began my nutrition and cooking career 24 years ago to create what I call, “Essential Cuisine”.
Essential Cuisine is not an either/or dietary practice. It instead is a both/and if you know what I mean.
Six years ago I produced Essential Cuisine’s 6 Set DVD series with 55 cooking shows that teach the basics of what a person needs to know to establish a foundational - nutritionally sound diet to last a lifetime.
I produced visual shows because that is how I learned, by watching a passionate, knowledgeable teacher. The shows are professional - two camera angle cooking shows, along with nutrition education and recipes.
The series includes how to make Raw Foods, with the best of Cooked Foods and Cultured/Fermented Foods - All things "Essential" for a thriving healthy life.
This Essential Cuisine series is now available in this course.
A note about Raw: Raw food is particularly difficult to learn by a book. Raw food cuisine involves a whole new way of working with nuts and seeds. It is really simple once you learn it.
Also, a Raw Food Diet is not a sustainable diet for most. People want cooked foods too, and there are simple and delicious methods to include cooked veggies and grains into your daily meals. Some foods are always best raw, and there are others that are better cooked. In this course, you will learn the difference.
*Note: To read more about the Raw part of this course, please see my Udemy Course on Raw Foods. The Raw, Cooked & Cultured Couse here includes the Raw Course PLUS a complete section on mixing raw and cooked together along along with Cultured Foods AND a Bonus series on Raw Cacao Desserts.
There is more. The Centenarians, those people who live to be a healthy 100 years old in various locations in the world, all have a naturally fermenting food in their diet. What does this mean? It means that a naturally fermented food (like un-pasteurized Sauerkraut and Kim Chi) will most likely support your body with what it needs to grow old healthfully.
Naturally fermented foods aid digestion, assimilation and immune building capabilities. Having an inner eco-system, or intestinal track, that is full of friendly Flora and brimming with good bacteria, which are present in naturally fermented foods, is one of the best ways to digest and absorb the nutrients from your meals.
In this course you will discover the secrets to staying slim, healthy and energized!

In 1991, the passion for Susan Teton Campbell’s life work was ignited when she read Diet for a New America by John Robbins. Bringing her extensive marketing and media expertise to the Robbins’ organization, EarthSave International, Susan created and promoted the award-winning Healthy School Lunch Program (HSLP).
Collaborating with top nutritional and environmental experts in government, business, and academia, Susan created a curriculum that motivated students nationwide to make healthier food choices. In 1997, with funding from the American Cancer Society and the USDA, Campbell took her program to Hawaii, inspiring the state to be the first in the nation to create plant based alternatives for school menus. When the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine rated the health of meals at American schools in 1998, the HSLP was in three of the top 10.
As part of the HSLP, Susan co-authored The Healthy School Lunch Action Guide, a 184-page resource manual published by EarthSave International in 1994. The guide was sold/distributed to teachers and parents across the country while Susan went on a national tour, speaking to thousands of parents, administrators, government agencies and associations (National Food Service Association). The tour included numerous TV and radio appearances.

In 1998 she collaborated with Citizens For Health (Boulder, CO), to launch a national campaign, Let’s Keep Organic, Organic. The campaign broke U.S. Department of Agriculture records for consumer letters received. The result was a rewrite of the policy that set national organic labeling standards.

Essential Cuisine, A Journey From Seed to Soul is produced in a 6 Set DVD format (23 cooking shows) and an e-book under the brand “Chef Teton”. The set is sold and distributed online, in Whole Food Markets, Amazon, and Internet distributors worldwide.
