Raw foods are inherently cleansing, cooling and rich in live enzymes and beneficial bacteria. As an abundance of fruits and vegetables become locally available, raw foods can be included in our diets more frequently to bring about renewal and balance. Many of us can benefit from taking in more raw foods as the temperature warms and we become more physically active. In this class we will learn about the benefits of raw foods, discuss when raw food should be avoided, and learn culinary techniques to create a summer-friendly raw meal together.
We’ll be making gazpacho, tacos and juice together (and eating it!).

From the teacher:
My big dream is to empower people to eat well, feel confident in the kitchen and to finally be able to live out their own amazing purpose. I firmly believe that the food we put into our bodies, which becomes part and parcel of our physical self, is the foundation to health and healing. I’ve seen this principle at work in my own life and in the lives of my clients. Food is medicine, not just for the body, but for our whole being. What we eat matters, how we eat matters, and many of us have not been taught how to nourish ourselves and our families in the most basic way. I love working with clients and in the community to foster the skills and knowledge needed to bring health care back into the home through herbs, essential oils and fresh, whole foods.
