A Raw Food keeper that Ill be using all the time!

Coco-Jack

I just tried this new coconut opener from Coco-Jack! For those of you who shy away from opening coconuts for fear of slicing your hand off or if you just have a hard time knowing how to cut into them while saving the coconut milk from splashing all over your kitchen counters, you’ll want to check this handy little tool out!

What I really love is the perfect round hole it leaves in the top of the coconut so that you can easily scrape the meat out and you can also close them up if your not going to be using the whole coconut right away. Love the scoop for the meet also!

Ive tried a lot of coconut knives and other gadgets over the years that promised to make opening my Thai baby coconuts a breeze but they never delivered and I have always gone back to my kitchen knives and hatchets. Ive ruined a lot of knives and my hatchet is pretty intimidating for the faint of heart. It can also make a mess.

Love this! The mat and the bag are pretty cool also… you can buy just the Coco-Jack and a mallet or bundles.

Let me know how you like it if you get one!

Truly All Natural Vegan Raw Face Cream!

Saturday, July 19th, 2014

This is skin food at its best!

Click HERE to order or just got to the store page.

It has taken a few years to perfect this recipe but it is finally time to let the secret out that many of my private clients and students have known for a while now. I have been selling this cream at my raw food trainings, to friends and family and its now available to all of you!

This deeply nourishing skin cream is made from truly natural ingredients. It is perfect for a daily moisturizing cream (I use it every morning before putting on makeup and at night after washing my face before going to bed) and has also been used for problem and troubled skin.

Each ingredient used has been selected according to its healing properties. I have listed them below with a short description of each. This cream is made in small batches, by hand, at low temperatures so as not to destroy the healing properties of each ingredient.

This cream will last for months if you use it sparingly. A little goes a very long way. You will notice the difference in your skin within days. Use this cream for 30 days and your skin will be transformed!

Here are some testimonials:

“LOVE LOVE LOVE this cream. I feel like I have new skin! Love the texture and feel of this cream. It’s done wonders for my complexion. Thanks!”
Kerri M.

“Alissa, I bought the abundance cream from you at your certification training last year. I need more, PLEASE! When will you be making another batch of this? I began using it as just a face cream and fell in love with it. I then I decided to try it on my psoriasis. I could not believe how much this helped! I have used everything in the last 15 years to help with the psoriasis and this cream worked better than anything I’ve ever tried. I wanted to ask you when you would have more and if I could buy this in a bigger quantity?”
Much Love,
Susan P.

“Hi Alissa, Its Donna from the last training class. I bought one of your creams in class and wish I bought a few more. This is the best face cream. I’ve been using it for a couple of months now and my skin feels so smooth and soft and hydrated. Please let me know when I can order more once its up on your site for sale.
Thanks for this amazing cream!”

Raw Green Soup

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

Ive been making a raw green energy soup in the mornings lately instead of my raw food smoothies.
This is the one I made this morning. You can alter the spices and seasonings to your liking.
Raw Energy Soup
Kale
Collards
Swiss chard
Celery
Bock choy
Cucumber
Sunflower greens
Lime juice
Avocado
Ginger
Turmeric powder
Cayenne powder
Cumin Powder
Dulse
greens
In a blender or food processor, blend all of the ingredients except the Dulse, until smooth. Once this is blended well, add the Turmeric, Cayenne and Cumin and blend again. Pour into a large bowl and add Dulse pieces. I like using a vitamix so it comes out really smooth and creamy.

Paleo with Raw Food

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

Although this book is not a raw food book, the Paleo Cookbook For Dummies by Dr. Kellyann Petrucci has just been published and she has included some of my raw food recipes in it! She is very much into the health benefits of eating raw. So if your paleo or easing your way into raw, this may be a great book to check out!

4th day of Advanced Raw Prep with Leah Dubois added to Alissa’s Level 3 Raw Food Teacher Training!

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

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.

(you can view video testimonials here from Alissa’s students!)

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. You will not only be learning food preparation and nutrition, but also about the mental and emotional aspects of a raw food diet.

Spending 4 Days with Alissa in Gloucester, MA., you will also learn:

  • The many aspects of what a Raw and Living Food Diet is.
  • Simple and easy raw food preparation.
  • How to prepare gourmet meals.
  • How to garnish and prepare beautiful presentations.
  • How to transform your favorite cooked food dishes into healthy raw food meals.
  • How to stay motivated while eating a raw and living food diet.
  • How to encourage and teach others.
  • How to teach Level One and Level Two classes.
  • How to teach from your heart and be a successful Living on Live Food teacher for individuals and groups
  • Many different aspects of how to run various raw food business’
  • Dealing with daily raw food living such as environment, friends and family, and traveling while raw.
  • Sprouting and dehydrating techniques.
  • Detoxing (emotionally and physically.)
  • Juice Fasting
  • Colon cleansing
  • Liver and gallbladder cleanse
  • Wheat grass and other nutritionally rich foods.
  • Self massage, skin brushing, etc…
  • Intestinal workouts and body stretching
  • Netti pots
  • Natural beauty and self care
  • And much more!
  • Many of these techniques will include a hands-on approach while learning. You will be given the opportunity to test techniques when appropriate such as a mini self-massage, netti pots, skin brushing, as we walk you through the steps.

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.

Not only will you be learning some of the unique recipes that we prepared at Grezzo, but more importantly, you will be learning the distinctive techniques that will allow you to create your own gourmet recipes.

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!

(If you are not coming to the Level 3 training but would like to sign up for this one day training on the Monday following the Level 3, please call the office at 978-985-7217. We will have a very limited amount of spaces available for people interested in the one day only. Past Level 3 Teachers will receive a discount, please call the office for more information)

(At this time, the only dates we have available for this extra day of training with Leah is for the 3 Mondays following the level 3 training dates in 2013. We offered this day a few years ago when Alissa had the restaurant in Boston and it was such a huge success that we were turning people away just weeks after announcing it.  We do not know if this extra day will be available after the 2013 teacher Trainings.)

Imagine … making money AND doing what you love, while helping people and spreading the word about raw food!

Many of Alissa’s teachers are deriving a very large income after receiving these certifications.

Being part of Alissa’s team means that you will be benefiting from Alissa’s knowledge and experience. Best of all, you will be part of her organization that will connect people to you through her online database and through your own Living on Live Food website that promotes your classes and raw food business through Alissa’s site. We will refer people directly to you when they call and email the office asking for teachers and classes. We also mail the certifications to your clients immediately following their classes with you so there is no paperwork for you to deal with and no inventory of certifications for you to worry about. You may also buy and retail Alissa’s books and DVDs at a 40% discount. Please call the office for more information at 1-978-985-7217.

Example of possible net income:

10 people in a Level 2 instructor class:
$650.00 per person
= $6500.00
-20%
 $5,200.00 
(Minus food and basic supplies.)

$5,200.00 a class.

 Additional benefits: As a teacher, you will be able to network with people in your area on Alissa’s interactive site. You will also have access to the private forum where you will find useful information in order to better assist your clients. You can discuss all things raw; teaching techniques, client and group practices, swap recipes, share practical tips and so much more. This support board is an incredible tool for keeping in touch with others on this path, finding immediate answers to your questions and continuing with your knowledge of the raw food lifestyle. 

The price for this training is $2400.00.

 Please call the office to register today at 1-978-985-7217 and to find out more information.

After registering we will send you an information packet with directions, local hotels and other information.
