Friends of FIG, Sophie and Shirley, are conducting another Healthy Living with Raw Food course, beginning in May 2010.
They have asked us to pass on the following information:
Our first course was extremely well-received, and as we were unable to accommodate all those who wanted to attend, we decided to run the course again, this time on Thursday evenings. The benefits of a plant-based diet are well-documented. Research presented in The China Study by T. Colin Campbell includes overwhelming evidence that “the closer we get to a plant-based diet, the lower was the risk of the chronic degenerative diseases.”
In this six-week course we will show you easy and fun ways to increase living foods in your diet, such as green smoothies, raw vegan cakes and dehydrated treats. And you get to sample the foods prepared. We give tips on bringing food to your doorstep with wild edible plants, gardening and permaculture, and we provide contacts and resources so you can connect with the local and wider living foods community. Guest speakers motivate by showing the way to health and vibrant living. All food prepared is free of gluten, dairy, egg and meat. If you have any special dietary allergies, please let us know in advance.
