Raw Vegan "Beginner" Class

I had so much fun teaching at Whole Fooods last night! The participants were all so enjoyable and relaxed. We kicked off the class With an introduction to basic kitchen equipment (a high speed blender, a food processor, a juicer and more). After a small discussion on the topic of beginning a raw food diet, we got busy in devouring WONDERFUL raw treat recipes from Sarma's book Raw Food Real World. I made Chocolate Pudding, Carrot Ginger Soup with Lime, Almond Milk and a Tropical Green Smoothie. YEAH!!! talk about a treat! :)
I was honored to have in my class amongst the other guests, Kristen Suzanne of Kristens Raw. What a joy!!! Three years ago (when I first began learning of the raw food lifestyle) I attended many of Kristen's classes where she taught me and introduced to me some of the most amazing raw vegan recipes I have ever had! Three years later she is sitting in MY class observing and supporting me, I couldn't be more thrilled about my very first Whole Foods class!!
I have been asked to come back and teach a class every month... Wonderful! It is something I have to think about. Of course I absolutely love teaching and I love being before the audience, but the classes do take up a decent amount of time and with homeschooling and being s mommy, my number one priority are my girls :) so once I decide, I'll be sure to tell!

I was in your class at Whole Foods last week. You did an awesome job! Your recipes were yummy! Also, you were prepared, organized and had a great connection with the audience. I hope to attend one of your classes in the future!
