Wondering How to Celebrate the Holidays on a Raw Food Diet?

Nov 01, 2015 08:54PM
Staying focused on raw food during the holidays can be challenging. Thanksgiving is only a few days away and to many, it signals the start of the holiday season. It is the time of year that many tend to throw their healthy eating habits to the wind and declare a ban on broccoli. Holidays mean food, but that doesn’t mean you have to completely abandon the progress you have been making toward healthy eating and incorporating raw food into your diet. Join Luzy Perez from 3 to 6 p.m. on November 14 in Fairfax for a hands-on demonstration in preparing healthy raw food for the holidays.

Five dishes will be prepared and shared for tasting including “turkey” and carrot and ginger soup. Plus, there will be handouts with the recipes to take home.

Eating a raw food diet around the holiday season is a sure fire way to set yourself apart from the group. Part of the raw vegan lifestyle is having to face a lot of questions. Input on your choices and anything out of the norm is going to seem even more so at this time of year, so take this time to learn. Prepare yourself to celebrate with food that's interesting and tasty, with complex flavors and textures and unexpected ingredients and plated with flair.

Come hungry to this fun and tasty learning experience.

Cost: $60/$90 for a couple. Location: Fairfax (will be provided after registration). For more information, call 571-471-2891.
