a Healthy Diet
We will explore our food system and discover where food comes
from, how it is grown, processed and brought to market. You will
learn how to read food labels and understand what the ingredients
mean. We will discuss basic nutrition--proteins, carbohydrates,
fats, vitamins, minerals and water and learn how to make sure
you are getting the nutrition you need without sacrificing flavor
This lecture is about taking your healthy diet to the next level.
The business of living requires that we change in order to grow,
and our diet has to change as well to accommodate our lifestyle.
You will evaluate your diet in relationship to your current lifestyle
and make the necessary enhancements to have renewed energy and
Nutritional imbalances, low self esteem, stress and overeating
all contribute to food cravings and addictions. This is an opportunity
to do some honest soul searching to define areas in your life
that are contributing to your addictions. Then we can discuss
health practices that will allow you to take control of your health
and set you on your path to wellness.
Vegan and Raw
If you are ready for change, but don't know how to make the changes
you want, we will show you how. We will show you how to properly
combine foods to provide balance and assure optimal nutrition
and energy. You will learn how to gradually add more fruits, vegetables,
seeds, nuts and grains to your diet in a way that is emotionally
and physically satisfying.
Let Food Be Thy
The cure for illness and disease is a healthy lifestyle. Fruits
and vegetables are one of our best superfoods as they are packed
with antioxidants and phytonutrients that optimize nutrition,
balance hormones, improve brain function, boost metabolism and
strengthen immunity. Learn what foods naturally contain the nutrients
that promote healing from asthma, high blood pressure, high cholesterol,
Diabetes II and yes even cancer, and how to incorporate them into
your present diet.
We will explore all aspects of health including consciousness,
diet, cleansing, sleep, stress management and exercise. Next we
will identify your personal obstacles, challenges and limitations.
Then we will empower you with the tools for change to remove boundaries
and overcome obstacles.
LECTURES AND RAW
FOOD TASTINGS (Two Hours)
Balancing a Totally
Many people are concerned about getting enough nutrition from
a plant-based diet. A plant-based raw diet can be nutritionally
adequate when varied and adequate in calories. We will discuss
specific dietary needs and food sources, food combining, acid
alkaline balance and food portioning.
We will show you step-by-step
how to design an eating plan tailored to your unique lifestyle
using the plant-based food pyramid as a guide. Participants will
sample raw food dishes that embody these principles.
and Balanced Raw Dishes
You will learn how to balance nutrition and flavor by incorporating
the five tastes, herbs, spices, seasonings and flavors. We will
show you how to determine which plant-based raw ingredients to
substitute for highly processed, refined and cooked ingredients
to achieve desired texture equivalents. We will reveal preparation
methods including marinating, blending, fermenting and dehydrating
that will give your texture equivalents of baking, sautéing, marinating
and frying to ensure a finished product that looks good, smells
good, tastes good and feels good. Handout and food samples provided.
