Summer Raw Food Challenge 1/2 Day Class (Galway)

Summer Raw Food Challenge 1/2 Day Class (Galway)

Summer Raw-Food Challenge ½ Day Class

With summer fast approaching (and hopefully the good weather too) why not challenge yourself to make simple delicious raw food dishes for you and all the family that are full of healthy nutritious ingredients.

The Challenge:  Make one raw food dish daily during the Summer!!

Raw-food dishes are not boring or hard to make, in fact they are quite the opposite, full of vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants, enzymes, vitality and photo-chemicals, they are simple and quick to make and provide you with a powerhouse of nutrition for optimal health and wellbeing.

Often the biggest obstacle to people making these deliciously healthy raw food dishes is that a person  don’t know where to start or what to do or what ingredients to buy !!ktchen1

Not to worry, that’s where this ½ Day Raw Food Class comes in, I will show you everything you need to know !!

During this class, you will get to sample a well-balanced combination of fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds to get you the most nutrition possible in its most accessible form.

During the day I will make 16 to 20 raw-food dishes (and maybe more if we have time) and the good news is that you will get to sample them all !! So come hungry ………………

ingredients1We will cover tasty dishes for breakfast, lunch, dinners, snacks, dips, sauces, salad dressings, soups, smoothies, juices, treats and deserts.

The idea is to show you how you can make such healthy delicious dishes using whole natural raw food ingredients which are easy to make.

Here are a few of the benefits you’ll receive from eating all these amazing nutrient-rich foods:

  • Chlorophyll: Chlorophyll is what gives plants their green colour. This chemical is essential for turning light into energy for plants. For us, chlorophyll is a blood builder. In its molecular makeup it contains essential magnesium to help our bodies function properly. I’ve seen statistics that say over 60-80% of the population is deficient in magnesium.
  • Antioxidants: We have all heard about the benefits of antioxidants and how they can protect your body and your skin. Simply put, anti-oxidants stop you from “rusting” at a molecular level. Just like iron reacts and starts to rust when exposed to the elements, a similar process happens in our bodies. Antioxidants work to slow this process and keep you looking and feeling younger.
  • Phytonutrients: Phytonutrients are “plant” nutrients. There are many classifications of these compounds and each plant has a different blend. Science has only recently begun deeply exploring many of these categories, but we do know that the research is very promising. We’ve known about some phytonutrients like carotenoids, the compounds that make carrots orange, for some time. Carotenoids appear to protect humans against certain cancers, heart disease, and age-related macular degeneration.
  • Fibre: Fibre is what keeps our digestive systems clean. A high fibre diet has been shown to decrease risk of heart disease and colon cancer. Fibres in plants are not digested; they simply form bulk to stool to allow smooth and efficient elimination.me_workshop
  • Amino Acids: Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Amino acids are found in all plants in different arrays. So a varied diet of plant foods can provide you with a wide range of amino acids to build your own body and keep you strong and healthy.
  • Enzymes: Cooked foods contain no enzymes while living uncooked foods are full of them. There are two types of enzymes at work in the body, digestive ones and metabolic ones. Digestive ones help with the breakdown of food and the harder the food to digest the more of these it need to break it down. Metabolic enzymes are responsible for all other activity in the body, including renewal and repair of old or damaged cells.

And more good news, the more healthy food you eat, the less junk food you tend to eat. Your body is more satisfied, Raw food is an excellent remedy for food addiction & cravings because you replace & eliminates addictive junk foods with unlimited amounts of nutrient-dense foods. So you fill those craving voids. And you stay satisfied.

Aim Of This Class:

It is our goal that you come away from this class with the all the tools and knowledge necessary so that you have acquired the confidence, the knowledge, the self-power, and experience necessary to empower yourself to start your own ‘health-food’ journey on a road to better health and nutrition for you and your family that will stand to you for many years to come.
