Fun at Au Lac and Yummy Culinary Class

au lacTraffic is something we just don’t have in Fort Bragg, so I wasn’t prepared for the congestion on the LA freeways!  But it is all worth it when we have the opportunity to meet great people like the ones at Au Lac in Fountain Valley on Friday night.  Many of them told us they have wanted to attendLiving Light for years and some decided tonight that they aren’t going to wait any longer — after all, money sometimes manifests out of nowhere for other things, why not for something as important and life altering as this!  After all, nothing is as important as our health!  And, if food doesn’t taste great, forget it — we would rather die than eat food we don’t like!  It isn’t enough for it to be healthy — it has to taste good.  Nothing like great tasting food to get people inspired!

It was also wonderful seeing Chef Ito again!  Ito graduated from Living Light 12 years ago and has become one the the best chefs in the world.  His restaurant is one of my favorites — you can really taste the LOVE.  Thanks, Chef Ito, for spreading the love and light one bite at a time!

Next stop is Yummy: Vegan Culinary Classes in Pasadena.

Yummy’s vegan culinary class on Saturday was a yummy experience for all concerned.  Dan and Iyumies had a great time showing attendees (some not even vegan, but curious) how to make Raw Food for Cooked Food Lovers — they were blown away!  Even the raw food enthusiasts in attendance said they had no idea raw foods could be so exciting and delicious.  I love big bold flavors and it comes through in my style of cuisine and the recipes in our book, Raw Food for Dummies, as well as what we teach at Living Light.   Lot’s of people said they want to attend the school, even if only for our weekend entree level classes, FUNdamentals of Raw Living Foods and Sharpen-Up Your Knife Skills.  Others said they were ready to do as our graduate Michael Miller told them he did — and start a new rewarding career as a teacher and chef.

Young and Delicious

We are in beautiful Toronto, Ontario, Canada preparing for one of our favorite yearly events, the Total Health Show. There are 60 different presenters here from all over the world speaking on a variety of topics related to health. My main focus this year is on Raw Foods for Health, Beauty, and Longevity as well as Staying Young Longer – topics that now I am completing my 65th year, I can say I have experience with!

I love telling people I am going to be 65 in May and watching the look on their faces! They look at each other in disbelief; ask each other if they heard that right; mouths drop open and heads shake (no, can’t be!) As I tell my audience, “The older I get, the bigger the payoff is from switching to a plant based, high raw diet.” But anyone, no matter how old they are, can benefit from changing their eating habits.

Start eating more raw fruits and vegetables today and you will most likely begin to feel better right away. You can be young and delicious at any age!

My book, The Raw Food Revolution Diet, will help you get started.  It includes tips about how to prepare yourself mentally, emotionally and physically if you have never eaten a primarily plant-based diet, and provides menus and great recipes that will nurture your spirit as well as nourish your body.  You’ll find everything you need to get started from A to Z, including nutritional information to ease your fears about not getting enough protein and calcium; how to know what a healthy body weight is for your body type, and even how to set up your kitchen and fill your pantry.

I’m so happy I wrote this book with my coauthors, Vesanto Melina and Brenda Davis, two of the most knowledgeable dieticians in the world on the subject of the raw vegan diet. They researched this book thoroughly, using only peer reviewed studies to prove that the raw vegan diet is superior to other ways of eating.

If you can’t make it to Toronto, you can go to our online store and buy (a signed copy) of the book and start today – why wait to reinvent yourself? Get the book, then sign up for the nearest FUNdamentals of Raw Living Foods. We’ll be offering four more in the next month. Check out RawFoodChef.com and find one near you.

Raw foods isn’t just roots and shoots anymore! It can be as delicious and comforting as any cooked foods you have eaten and we can show you how to make it easy. Our motto at Living Light is “Making Healthy Living Delicious” and no one does it better!

So, if you are interested in nurturing your spirit while nourishing your body, we can show you how! Check out our website, RawFoodChef.com and learn about all our classes.

On the Road Again

I love living in the Northwest! Early this morning, as we left Fort Bragg on our road trip to Vancouver BC. Dan, Martine and I drove through majestic forests of old growth redwood trees. Funny how something can be in your backyard and you rarely take advantage of it. We go the the ocean nearly everyday and we have redwoods at the Living Light Inn, but to visit these grandfather redwoods (many over 1000 years old), one must drive an hour or so north, and we rarely do that!

As  we left Fort Bragg, we drove north past the sand dunes and the magical rock formations to Westport, before turning east to Highway 101 and the redwood forests. Along the way, we saw owls and hawks, as well as raging rivers and waterfalls that were so beautiful, it brought tears to your eyes.  It was cloudy and we knew there was a good probability of rain on the way, but the weather held out for us and we enjoyed the drive north through Portland, Oregon, finally arriving, after a 12 hour drive to a beautiful sunset.

I lived in Bend, Oregon in the 70’s and early 80’s, so I feel at home here and I’m looking forward to coming back in a few weeks to teach our FUNdamentals of Raw Living Foods Class here. First, we will hit Vancouver BC, offering FUNdamentals there, then we will fly to Toronto for FUN in Toronto, then, on to Seattle for some FUN there, before we end with our last FUN class in Portland, before going home for FUN in Fort Bragg! That’s 5 FUNdamentals classes in 5 weeks! We are taking it to the people! In 14 years of teaching that class to thousands of people from over 50 countries and 6 continents, no one has ever voiced discontent. On the contrary — they tell us it was far more than they expected or even hoped for! There really isn’t any other entry-level raw foods class that can compare to FUNdamentals. It covers everything from A to Z ! I guarantee, you will be happy you made the decision to join us!

It’s Going To Be A FUN Tour

We are packing up and preparing to leave for the northwest and Canada next week for our second Raw Food Revolution Tour! It takes a tremendous amount of planning to take our classes on the road but we always love bringing FUNdamentals of Raw Living Foods™ to the people! We know there are thousands of eager raw food enthusiasts who can not make the trip here to Living Light and they so appreciate when we come to them! We’ve been teaching this class for nearly 14 years and it runs like a well-oiled machine even when it is taught in a different city every weekend!

Dan, Martine Lussier (Living Light Culinary Programs Manager) and I will be loading up our Toyota Sienna Van and heading north to Vancouver, BC, where will we offer free talks around town and teach our flagship class, FUNdamentals. Then we’ll fly to Toronto for more free talks and events, plus presentations at one of my favorite events, the Total Health Show, where I will also offer a special 3-hour evening seminar. We’ll stay in Toronto through the following weekend so we can offer another great FUNdamentals class to those anxiously awaiting it, before returning to Vancouver to pick up our van and drive to one of my favorite cities, Seattle, Washington.

There we will offer more free events, book signings and another FUNdamentals class before driving to Portland, Oregon where we already have a great group of raw food enthusiasts waiting for us. They know that FUNdamentals of Raw Living Foods  is the most comprehensive one-day course in raw food preparation in the industry—no other one-day class in raw food preparation can compare. After all, we started the gourmet raw food revolution, so who better to learn from?

During this introductory workshop, students will learn how to create a wide variety of delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes, including appetizers, fruit smoothies, soups, green juices, simple entrées, patés,  wraps and rolls,  nut milks and luscious nondairy cheeses,  crunchy crackers and other dehydrated goodies, amazing desserts, fermented foods, sprouting and kitchen gardening, essential equipment and supplies used in a raw kitchen…and much more!

Here is our list of cities and dates:
April 14 in Vancouver
April 28 in Toronto
May 5 in Seattle (Area), Washington
May 12 in Portland, Oregon

It’s going to be a FUN tour, so join us—we’d love to meet you and show you how to make healthy living Delicious!
