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 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’

  • Sprouting and dehydrating techniques.

  • 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!

(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.

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.

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…

To share in my excitement, Im personally giving away a 9 tray Excalibur Dehydrator to one lucky person who signs up to follow me on Opensky. (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!
