The last Alissa Cohen Teacher Trainings

Monday, September 26th, 2011

When I sent out the last bulk email announcing that this would be my last 2 classes for the Alissa Cohen Living on Live Food Teacher Training, I got lots of calls and emails asking if this was REALLY the last 2 classes.

Yes, It is. 2 years ago I began saying that I was done teaching these classes and moving on to other things. Ive been teaching these for 7 years now! My new book, Raw Food for Everyone was coming out and so many other things were calling my attention. But, as people continued to write and call about the classes and the demand was still so high for Alissa Cohen teachers, I decided to teach a few more over the last couple of years.

I love teaching these classes. The people that come to train with me are so amazing. I’ve met some wonderful people over the years who have become close friends. The trainings are intimate and in my home and after 35 + hours together, the whole class, including me, always has a life changing experience. The teachings are all about the food, and then not about the food. You will learn all about raw food prep and how to actually DO this diet in a real-life practical way, with a lot of tips, techniques, simple and easy recipes and more gourmet recipes from my restaurants. So if you’re just coming to be immersed in the raw food diet, you will be blown away…But, I also have a very practical way of teaching people how to really go out and teach raw food to others and how to make a living doing it. You can leave the class and set up your own business or you can use the business model that I have set up for you. You can have an Alissa Cohen web site and we promote you on the teacher locater page. We have people calling the office daily for teachers in their area so we need more Alissa Cohen Teachers!

But yes, these are the last two classes I’ll be teaching. And Yes, the only way to be certified for level 3 is to take the training directly from me.  October 21st-23rd and November 4th-6th. The November class is filling very quickly, the October one still has a lot of spaces (which is unusual because they normally  are filled a month before!)

Will I ever teach these again? I don’t know… I never say never. Will I be teaching these within the next few years? Definitely not.

The paperback version of my book Raw Food for Everyone will be coming out in October along with a huge radio tour that my publishers have me on. The whole next year is booked already and I’m changing things up.

However, the teacher classes will always be close to my heart and my staff and I will still be working closely with all of my teachers. This will be an even bigger part of my business.  the students who have trained directly with me and the people that they have trained, will be even busier because people will have to get trained by them, not me.  Most of you have seen the site and the teacher locator page which gets loads of hits every day. I will also be promoting my teachers in many other ways, while on tour with my book and other ventures. So, if you’d like to be a part of this huge network of raw food teachers, sign up now! It always happens that after the class we get so many calls with people asking for more dates.  So, I know I have “cried wolf” before, but really really really, these are the last 2 Raw Food Teacher Classes!

Hope to see you in class!

Raw Food Bars and Tea for Life

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

I’m a big fan of getting nutrients in however we can, and these Regeneration USA products are a quick and easy way to keep your body running at its best.  

Their anti-aging Whole Food Bars are famous for their antioxidant strength. They contain a huge amount of protein, which is so helpful when you’re trying to lose weight, as well as health-boosting foods like Goji Berries, Cacao nibs and Blueberries. They are 100% raw and made without processed sugar, corn syrup, preservatives, or synthetic sweeteners. Oh, and they taste great…which is important in a snack!

Their anti-aging tea contains Jiaogulan, which is known in Chinese medicine as “the herb of immortality.” It promotes cardiovascular health, digestion, strength, endurance, and immunity, and is also believed to help your body combat stress.

To me, it just makes sense to give your body as much health-boosting energy as possible, don’t you think?

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

Renee's Raw Chocolate - 2 Pack

 Alright, I know I have a lot of favorites, especially for snacking, but… this chocolate is seriously THE BEST I’ve ever had!

A lot of Raw Chocolates are super sweet or they have too much coconut oil or they have a weird aftertaste. Renee’s Raw Chocolates are seriously the best I’ve ever tasted! We ran a special on these when I first started with open sky and we sold out. We made it even more affordable and lowered the price of these so order them now because these will definitely not last!

Packed with goji berries for antioxidants, vitamin C, amino acids, and minerals, they’re a chocolate lover’s healthy dream come true!

Regenerating Skin Spray and Immune System Regenerator

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

Regenerating Skin Spray and Immune System Regenerator

Even when we’re eating raw and healthy, supplements can go a long way. They help neutralize toxins, balance your ph levels, and deliver tons of good stuff to your body like fulvic minerals, which are known for their cellular regeneration properties. 
I’m a big fan of getting nutrients in however we can, and these Regeneration USA products are a quick and easy way to keep your body running at its best.  The Immune System Regenerator strengthens your immune system and can even help with weight control (because they detoxify you). The Regenerating Skin Spray contains essentials amino acids that your skin needs to look its best, and while also helping to restore, regain and replenish those lost fulvic minerals.  

To me, it just makes sense to give your body as much health-boosting energy as possible. If you’re going to take supplements, they might as well be top-notch, so these are absolutely the ones to go for!

Hemp Protein, Hemp Seeds and Hemp Oil special!

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

 This was one of the first specials that I ran on opensky, but since people love hemp and use a lot of it, I wanted to run this again. Make sure you order this quickly as this special will run out fast. It’s a popular item!

Remember, you have to be signed up to receive my specials. Signing up is easy and free!

One of the biggest questions I get asked about going raw is how to get enough protein. We all know that dark green leafies are the highest source, but what about when you’re on the run?
If I can’t sit down to a full meal or when I just want a boost, hemp products are my go-to quick and nutritious solution.
You can make a delicious smoothie with hemp powder (a great way to quickly replenish your muscles after a heavy workout!). Sprinkle hempseeds on top of salads, raw ice cream, even brownies. Prep a tasty salad dressing in advance using hemp oil to ensure you’re getting those all-important omega oils. 
All three are easy ways to power up and feel great!

Here’s the recipe for my favorite power boost smoothie recipe:

  • Nutiva hemp powder
  • Bananas
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Coconut water
  • (optional: kale for a little extra green power)
    Combine in a blender and enjoy!

Brads Raw Chips!

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

This weeks super special! Brads Raw Chips!

I’m a snacker. That’s all I do is snack. I don’t really eat breakfast, lunch and dinner – I tend to graze throughout the day whenever I’m hungry. This way of eating works for me really well, because when you’re eating raw, you digest quicker so you need to eat more often.

Even back when I was bodybuilding, I’ve always felt better eating six small meals and snacks throughout the day. When you eat three big meals, your metabolism rises and crashes. But this way you keep your metabolism stoked all day, so you have more energy and burn more calories. One of my new go-to snacks of choice are Brad’s Chips.

The crackers are great because they’re crunchy and have really distinct flavors. And the kale chips are fantastic. Let’s be honest: we can all make kale chips at home in the dehydrator, but do you ever really find the time?

Kale is so good for you, but how often can you really get it in? These are great to have on hand instead of waiting five hours to dehydrate. If you’re new to this kind of eating, give the snacking system a try. I think you’ll be surprised to see how much energy you have – and how easily you lose weight!

Win an Excalibur Dehydrator! And… This Weeks Super Special!

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

I know many of you have heard me talk about how excited I am to be able to offer you amazing products at huge discounts. Its so easy to receive my inside sales and save tons of money on my favorite products! All you have to do is sign up here. You can also read more about how this works on my specials page.

Here’s more good news though…

(Don’t worry, if your already signed up, your automatically entered!) This sweepstakes is running now until May 8th. So sign up now! Read more about signing up here.

And if your already signed up to receive my weekly specials, here is today’s  which just started and will end tomorrow the 27th.

The collection of products in this Living Intentions bundle really hit the mark when it comes to taste! No joke, the Hemp & Greens cereal is one of the best things I’ve ever tasted. I ate the entire bag in one sitting! It’s packed with greens so you wouldn’t know it to look at it (I mean, green cereal can look a little weird, I know), but you’ll be shocked at how good it is.

Their two versions of Gone Nuts have SO much flavor. They’re actually a little spicy; I don’t like wicked hot, but these are just right. The sprouted pumpkin seeds have great saltiness to them so I use them as a snack straight out but you can also put them into a salad or mix them with dried fruits like goji berries and cacao nibs for a super-health trail mix.

I know, I’m going on and on, but that’s how good this stuff is! Lastly there’s the Original Salad Booster – this is really cool. When you’re making a salad, even though the raw veggies are nutritious, this is packed with things like spirilina and chlorella that you wouldn’t normally get that are so essential. It’s like a grain with nice salty, briny kick to it that gives a serious boost to your salad. You can also put it into raw soups, on top of sprouted grains…lots of stuff.

Once you get a taste of these, I’m sure you’ll come up with a lot of other ideas for how to use them!
