Some information from Alison, who you might recognise as a Co-op coordinator:
The next raw workshop is on Saturday June the 12th,. The first one sold out and this one has a few places left, I have attached a flyer with all the info on it. Please pass this on to any interested friends and family ect you may have as well.
It will cover the basics to show you just how easy it is to include living food in your daily life 🙂
Here is a testimonial with permission form a lovely girl who did the last workshop;
Lots of gratitude for Joy and yourself for organising the workshop. No matter how much you read about Raw and think you can do it, its no where near the same as seeing it being done in front of you. I thought the workshop was very informative and practical, it showed us how quick and easy it can be to whip up some raw treats. And because of that, I went out the very next day and bought the exact same cafe series blender and started making green smoothies, the raw cheese and soups. Have been doing it every day since, and am already up and running with my raw lifestyle transformation! So thanks guys!”
Also below is a little blurb about raw food,
Raw Food Diet?
A raw food diet or a living food diet as it is often refereed too, includes foods that are unprocessed and uncooked, such as plant foods, fresh fruit and vegetables, sprouts, seeds, nuts, dried fruit, sprouted legumes, nuts, and seaweed. As we know these foods can assist in providing us with good health.
When we don’t heat food above 116 degrees F it is believed to keep the enzymes in food intact, that can greatly assist in the digestion and absorption of food. Not cooking a food also helps retain the nutritional value and “life force” of food. Also by cooking foods it is possible to destroy many of the vitamins and minerals essential for good health.
The amount of raw food you eat will depend on an individual’s preference, however the more the better. One easy way to include more green leafy vegetables in your diet is to incorporate a green smoothie into your daily food intake, this is a combination of leafy green vegetable, and fruit, blended with water. An easy way to do this is to make a green smoothie in the mornings, where you use fruit and any green you like such as baby spinach and blend this with some water, The more fruit of course the sweeter the smoothie will be.
Some benefits of a Raw Food Diet are numerous, just a few are listed below and include;
* Increased energy
* Improved skin appearance
* Better digestion
* Weight loss
* Reduced risk of heart disease
