Get ready to enjoy the bliss of eating the most delicious sensual food experience on Earth.
Learning how to make Raw Food inspired the beginning of my health and beauty adventure! I learned by “doing” when I went away to a Shaman Training in Oklahoma 24 years ago. No one had heard of Raw Food then, and that included me. I was surprisingly awakened to a sensuality with food that I had never even dreamed of.
Within a few days the puffiness around my eyes, as well as the rest of the body, disappeared. My joints moved easily and the light came back to my eyes. I had been a constant dieter and now I was free. I never counted another calorie and ate freely whatever I wanted from vital food from the Earth. I literally reversed signs of aging and you can too.
Basically, the reason Raw Food works so well for people is 4 fold:
1.You are getting an abundance of nourishment that your body is most likely craving.
2.You simply cannot over eat it – it is so satisfying.
3.You will never have to count calories, fat or carbohydrate grams, and portion sizes again. You can eat to your heart’s content.
4. Seriously, it is so delicious you will not even believe it.
Raw food is easy, but takes learning some new techniques. This is why I created this course in visual format. Once you understand it and “see” how it is made, rather than read how it is done, you will have the simple tools that will give you a lifetime of nourishment and intense pleasure.
In addition, once you learn the techniques, you can pick up any raw food preparation book and instantly know what the author is talking about and how to do it.
Here is what's included in this course:
1. First, you learn the basics of working with nuts and seeds. This includes soaking, sprouting and blending.
2. In the videos I show you how to do it all with close ups, which my students find extremely helpful.
3. Since nuts and seeds are at the core of Raw Food, once you understand the simplicity of working with them and how to maximize their flavor and vitality, you will find a new way to nourish and bring substance to your meals.
4. You will learn how to put excellent fats and oils into your daily life; oils that nourish you and aid you in weight loss. Utilizing them with other raw foods will deliver sauces and dressings so delicious that you will want to drink them, and you can if you want.
Raw "living" foods are the best way to begin to nourish you in a way that your cells love. Nourishment means "beauty".
Nourishment means "vitality".
Nourishment means "radiance".
These can all be yours now by learning to incorporate Raw "living" foods into your life.
Once you learn the basics you will learn how to blend foods together to make outstanding entrees, such as:
a. Raw Soups
b. Raw Food Pizza
c. Rich Luscious Sauces & Dressings
d. Roll Ups
e. Yummy bread-dough crackers
g. Seed Cheeses
h. Nut & Seed Milks
I. Desserts to Live For
j. Pairing with Organic Wine
The Raw Food Basic & Entree's Course is designed to give you everything you need to incorporate raw "living" Foods into your daily life.
Use this course to awaken you to the sensual pleasure of eating vibrant food from the Earth, full of aroma, flavor and richness.
The course has 15 Instructional Cooking Shows (4 hours) with photos and recipes. Enjoy!
Sometimes people just don't know where to start. This video clip shows you some of Chef Teton's favorite equipment so that students can become acquainted with their options.
The basics of Raw Foods involves germinating or bringing to life nuts and seeds. This is the beginning of the sprouting process. Here you will learn what soaking looks like and the process that the foods take on their soaking journey.
Here is a recipe for a delicious juice. At the time I used a Champion Juicer, which is great for sorbets, but now there are many other juicers that surpass the mechanics of the Champion. Chef Teton actually prefers green smoothies now over juicing. Instructions for those are in the Raw, Cooked and Cultured course as well as on her website: www.ChefTeton.com
Turning seeds into powders is a fantastic way to make a luscious addition to vegetables. They add an amazing flavor, plus good fats and richness to veggies and other raw and cooked food dishes.
Utilizing a grater in certain ways adds greatly to the versatility of meals. A good grater is light, easy to travel with and can turn an ordinary carrot into a yummy juicy raw veggie.
Seed milks are the bomb! They are easy, nutritious and much better for you if they are made fresh from nuts and seeds. The good news is that they are more affordable to.
This dressings literally started my culinary career. You must try it. People used to say, "What's in this? I just want to drink it!."
When you make some fresh carrot juice, make sure you save some of it and the pulp for this refreshing delicious dressing. You can also pick up a fresh carrot juice from your local juice bar, and make sure you get some of the pulp too as it acts as the thickener.
OMG, this dressings or sauce, which is made from tofu, is thick, delicious and good on EVERYTHING! Seriously. And, if you don't think you like tofu, just ignore that because you (or anyone else) will ever know that tofu is what makes this sauce thick and creamy.
Here we go. This is the best recipes ever for a raw pizza saouce. It is great to make for guests because everyone loves it. It is so delicious and full of nutritious food.
This pizza dough is made from buckwheat. These pizza dough crackers can be enjoyed with all kinds of foods: pizza sauce, seed cheeses, avocado, cheese and nut butters! They are a great gluten free option that is softer and more moist than those hard and dry raw food crackers.
Here is another way to turn nuts into another amazing food like a seed cheese!
Now that you have learned to soak nuts and seeds you will learn to make some yummy recipes, like Hummus.
Sea Veggies and particularly Dulce, are a easy and potent way to get your minerals. Soaking Dulce is easy and tastes great when eaten simply. No need for tons of cooking to enjoy this nutrient dense food.
Now that you have learned about new foods, and made some seed cheeses, now you can roll them together in a Nori Roll up!
In this video you will learn how to use nuts and frozen fruits to make delicious sorbets. With the addition of nuts the sorbets are rich and satisfying.
This is a great video clip to learn about labeling distinctions for organic wines and wines made with organically grown grapes.
