Whether your looking for a career in Raw Food or just interested in learning more for yourself or loved ones, Alissa’s level 3, Living on Live Food Teacher Certification, will prepare you for your next step in your raw food journey.
Alissa has been eating and teaching the raw vegan lifestyle since 1986.
She has been living this lifestyle since then and she was one of the first to begin a Certification Program in this field.
Alissa has added a 4th day for the Level 3 Teacher Training! We are so excited to have Leah Dubois, Alissa’s chef from her restaurants, Grezzo, and co-author of Raw Food for Everyone, teaching a full day of advanced raw food prep on Monday attached to the level 3 Teacher Training. This 4th day of training with Leah will be included in the cost of the Level 3 Teacher Training! Please read below for more information about this day.
After taking Alissa’s level 3 Teacher Training, many of our students teach classes, open restaurants and wellness centers, cater, become personal chefs, write books, consult and make an abundant living doing what they love! Many students come to class just to learn how to take care of their families, friends and communities by sharing Alissa’s raw food philosophy.
Alissa Cohen’s Level 3 Certification courses are designed to open up a whole new world for you by giving you the knowledge and training to become a certified Living on Live Food Chef, Instructor and Teacher.
Both newcomers and experienced participants feel comfortable in Alissa’s class.
The program is designed to help you reach your personal and professional goals. After taking this course, you can venture into your own raw food business or you can join Alissa and be part of her team! You will be able to teach others how to become healthy and vibrant through individual one-on-one teachings or with groups by teaching Alissa’s Level One and Level Two classes.
Many people, after taking Alissa’s classes, choose to create their own raw food business without teaching Alissa’s Level One and Level Two classes. Some teach an occasional class and others teach many Level One and Level Two classes. It is totally up to you! Alissa offers these bonuses as a way to get people started on their raw food path without having to reinvent the wheel and for people who do not want to be out on their own but part of a bigger community.
The only way to become a level 3 Teacher is to be trained directly by Alissa in this 4 day class. In this 4 day Teacher Training, you will be certified as a Level 1 Chef, Level 2 Instructor and Level 3 Teacher. There is no prerequisite to this training as it is an intensive that will cover all three levels.
From the level 3 Certification Course, you will learn how to go raw and stay raw. You will also be able to teach others how to go raw and stay raw with ease! While creating optimal health through a fun, enjoyable, and realistic way! You will learn tools and techniques to motivate and inspire others along their path.

Although you will have access to Alissa and be able to ask her questions throughout the entire training, there will also be a long question and answer period with Alissa. This is very often a favorite part of the trainings for many people. The knowledge gained in these sessions while talking with Alissa and sharing with the group often brings about an enormous understanding and awareness for the Raw Food Diet and lifestyle.
Leah Dubois will be the main teacher for Mondays class. You will be learning unique recipes and techniques from Grezzo.
You will learn the intricate details of how to prepare upscale, eclectic food that is cutting edge in the raw food world.
This is not your typical raw food class with standard recipes such as pizza, wraps and pies. You will instead be learning advanced culinary techniques that have been adapted for raw food preparation. You will learn how to make boursin style cheeses, pickled vegetables, how to baste, macerate and present dishes. You will learn how to create unique tastes and textures uncommon in raw foods such as aerating, setting, releasing and candying.

Garnishing and finishing plates will also be covered as well as tips on recipe building, ingredient substitutions, finding unique products, adapting meals to different situations, etc…
Gourmet meals and a celebratory dinner included.
This is an extremely unique opportunity to study with Leah Dubois. A truly one of a kind experience!

We do not know if this extra day will be available after the 2013 teacher Trainings.)

Ive posted this recipe from my new book, Raw Food for Everyone, before but…Its worth repeating!

Ok here’s the recipe:
Burdock Root is a powerful anti-inflammatory herbal tea. A mildly bitter herb, it also stimulates the release of gastric juices and aids digestion.
Shilajit is considered the king herb of Ayurveda, the traditional Indian system of medicine. Shilajit contains at least 85 minerals in ionic form. Shilajit is a Sanskrit word meaning “conqueror of mountains and destroyer of weakness.” It is a mineral-rich humus (soil) that emanates from the crevices of the Himalayan mountains. Shilajit is truly a remarkable substance with a long history of human usage for healing, building, and rejuvenation.
Combine burdock tea and shilajit powder with these other ingredients to take the place of your morning coffee.
1 cup brewed burdock root tea
1 cup almond milk
1 teaspoon shilajit powder
1 tablespoon agave nectar
Combine all ingredients in a vita-mix or blender until frothy and warm from blending. Sprinkle with a little cinnamon if desired.

Okay now for the Sauerkraut Recipe!!!
Look how cool the inside of this cabbage looks! I only use purple cabbage most of the time.
This is from my new book Raw Food for Everyone. Ive been making this throughout the winter and its so good for digestion and just taste so amazing! I dont even wait untill it ferments to eat it, its great that day!
Shred the cabbage with a knife, rather than in a food processor, so the cabbage comes out shredded rather than diced. Sauerkraut makes a great addition to wraps and other sandwiches. If you want less heat, reduce the amount of jalapeño. No water is necessary in this fermenting process because of the high moisture content of cabbage and the use of salt in this recipe. Warmer weather will expedite the process. It’s ready when the cabbage has softened and there’s a slightly fizzy, slightly sour taste.
Makes 8 cups
3 cups apple cider vinegar
1 to 2 jalapeño chiles, stemmed
1½ tablespoons coriander seeds
½ head napa cabbage, shredded
½ head purple cabbage, shredded
2 teaspoons sea salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1. Put the vinegar, jalapeños, and coriander seeds in a Vita-Mix and blend to create the brine. Set aside.
2. Combine the cabbage, salt, and pepper and thoroughly toss with the brine. Place in a ceramic bowl or large crock. Store at room temperature on the countertop for 5 days, stirring at least once a day.
3. Transfer the sauerkraut to clean quart-size jars, cover, and refrigerate for up to 3 weeks.

I’m so excited to be offering you this CD. It has been a long time in the making. Although the words and suggestions in this CD are straightforward and simple, the results have been extremely powerful! Ferdinand and I have been working with groups of people using this CD to test the effectiveness and the results have been amazing!
After announcing this yesterday on a bulk email, we have sold over 200- in one day! I know its because people have experienced first hand how effective my Living on Live Food Book and DVDs are and these are going to be an amazing addition to those life-changing products!
After 21 days of continued use, ALL of the people we have shared this CD with reported incredible results. Some of these include:
- Eating better
- Able to stay on their eating regime with more ease
- More willpower
- Feeling happier with their diet
- Less anxiety about their food choices
- Choosing healthier food over less healthy food without thinking about it
- Less cravings
The majority of them reported feeling calmer, more balanced and peaceful on a daily basis.
Many of these people told us that they were able to stay raw longer then they were ever able to before and that it was easier and more joyful to do.
After 21 days of consecutive use, they continued to listen to this CD 2-3 times and week and continued to have fantastic results.
People also reported being able to get back on track easier and quicker by listening to this CD if they had veered off of their eating plan.
This CD helps you to stay on a more nutritious diet and with the addition of Gloria Galante’s music, it is also restorative and healing. Gloria is an internationally accomplished musician. Her work as a Certified Music Practitioner is highly therapeutic and is utilized in hospitals, healing facilities and multimedia.
Please send me an email and let me know how you like this new CD!
