Have you ever been interested in preparing a meal of raw foods, but you thought it would be too hard? Or would the food just taste like vegetables? Have you ever wanted to eat creamy cheese, but can’t tolerate the dairy? Or maybe you’ve been curious about making your own non-dairy milk to save some money, but you have no idea where to start.
Start here! This class is about eating tasty, fresh, plant-based foods, without additives — just food and spices. No added oils or preservatives, just real, good food.
In this Intro to Raw Foods class, plant-based, certified ACE health coach Julie Ward will discuss the benefits to the body of eating raw foods from time to time. We’ll make a few non-dairy milks, a non-dairy ricotta cheese that is always a hit with friends, a raw soup, and a walnut “meat” that’s great for tacos.
Julie, who holds a certificate in Plant–Based Nutrition from eCornell, will discuss the preparation of raw, plant-based foods and how to enjoy many more fresh foods.
Program note: For those with allergies, please be aware that this class will use nuts, seeds and oats.
