New Raw Food Teacher Training Classes with Alissa

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

“I’m excited to announce the new dates for the Level 3 Living on Live Food Teacher Certifications.

They are:

September 28th-30th

Or

October 19th-21st

The last two were so magical and healing not just for the people who came to the training, but for me as well.

I’m also excited to be teaching these certifications in Gloucester, MA now. We are 45 minutes North of Boston International Airport and there are amazing places to stay and visit while in the area. This 3 day intensive is being held in a gorgeous house wihtin walking distance to one of Gloucesters most beautiful beaches. It is easily accessible from car or public transportation. It is a light, airy, peaceful, open space with lots of room inside and out.

      

We already have 8 people signed up for September and 2 for October before we have even announced it through email, so these will fill quickly for sure now that we have just sent out a bulk email. There are so many of you I would love to meet. Hopefully we will get the opportunity to spend a weekend together. It’s an amazing journey and includes so much more than just food.”

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 rawteacher.com 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 Macaroons!

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

 

These macaroons were a huge hit when I sold them on the site. They are one of my favorite treats!!!

“Delicious, good for you, and good for the planet…what more could we possibly ask for in a treat?!” — Alissa

Emmy’s organics was started by two very cool twenty-somethings, Samantha and Ian, who are passionate about following their dream and sharing their love for pure foods, healthy bodies & sacred commerce. And trust me, you can feel the love they put into every bite of these amazing macaroons.

This was one of the first handpicked products I sold on OpenSky and I’m featuring them again because they are just such a favorite of mine. I’ve tasted other packaged macaroons and they mostly taste like just dates, but you can really taste the bits of coconut in these, which is exactly the way it should be. They’re sweet (but not sickeningly so like so many other brands) and really moist. And the flavors are incredible! 

Samantha and Ian use only the finest raw, vegan, organic ingredients and biodegradable, earthy-friendly resources for their packaging, so you can always feel good about choosing their products.

Ok here’s the recipe:

Burdock-Shilajit Latte:

Shilajit Latte

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.

These are great as energy bars or even dessert, but Ive also been using them as a quick whole food meal. They’re extremely filling! They’re individually wrapped so I keep a few in my glove compartment whenever I’m out and about and don’t have to to stop or when I know I wont be home for hours. Stock up on these before a plane trip -you’ll be so happy to find one in your bag during a long flight. I took a bunch with me on my recent trip to Italy as an easy treat.

Oh and they taste incredible! They’re made with nuts, seeds, dates, berries, and all different spices - they have a lot of different flavors and they are all delicious!

Each bar weighs 3 oz and the sample pack includes:

  • Cherry Vanilla
  • Chocolate vanilla
  • Chocolate Lemon

(The only drawback  is that its only in the US! I’m working on changing that soon!!!)

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!

Sauerkraut

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.

Below is Florence Italy on New Years Eve. It was insane with so many people!

I went to a lot of museums and tried to get my art fix while we were in Florence and Siena.

We drove to Santa Margherita and spend a few days there and also went to Portofino.

And of course, the produce was amazing! Lychee’s, persimmons and everything else you can think of!

Raw Food Thanksgiving and Kava!

Saturday, November 27th, 2010

Here are some pictures of my Raw Thanksgiving. I’m not great at remembering  to take pictures, but I tried while I was in FL.

I’m not sure that’s such a bad thing. I feel like it takes me out of the moment of actually enjoying what’s happening when I have to stop and step out of it and “remember” to take a picture for later. Id rather enjoy what I’m doing at that time and be “in the moment of it” while its happening, not later!

Ok, so that’s my excuse. Here is most of the food except for the amazing raw chocolates my mother made and some other yummy tid bits.



Papaya Encrusted Salmon Steak from Raw Food for Everyone. This is probably one of my all time favorite raw food dishes and its so easy to make.

Butternut Squash Ravioli from Raw Food for Everyone

This is the Butternut Squash stuffing. You can see that I couldn’t wait to eat it by the finger marks in it. This was SO good!

This is similar to the recipe for rice with the Nori rolls in RFFE but i think she just used parsnips and pine nuts.

This was an almond type bread with a salsa like the one in RFFE. We ate this first for an appetizer. OMG, so good!!!

Watermelon Soup from Living on Live Food. My mother lives on this. She makes it all the time and since it was an 80 degree day for Thanksgiving, it seemed appropriate!

Blueberry Cheesecake from RRFE. This was so creamy but not heavy. We ate this as we ran out the door to catch our plane home. I kept going back for more!

After spending Wednesday morning with one of my best friends who I haven’t seen for almost 2 years and then running off with my sister Stacie to her friends are gallery (Her place is beautiful  http://www.tiacrystal.com ) we went  to 4th Generation in Boca. It’s a raw food deli and small supermarket. Great Place! I forgot to take pictures of the wraps but we had a raw hummus and falafel wrap and a raw mock tuna wrap, they were SO good! I did however remember to take a picture of the macaroons we devoured. You can see they are almost gone!

We then met up with Dennis and then later my parents for dinner. My sister and I decided, after our parents were gone and Dennis was asleep, to go to this Kava Bar that was about 2 minutes from us.

This was such a cool place! This is Stacie, drinking the kava at the bar. We had 3 coconut shells worth. I felt really relaxed and pretty happy after those!

If you click on these you can see them better. It was dark in there so the pix aren’t  great. This is also our new friend Erin, the Kava Barista, she was so cute and sweet and showed us “the kava ropes”. I’m addicted!

Sunrise the next morning from our patio and then home that night!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Its was really nice to be able to spend it with my family, its been years!

Don’t forget, Free Shipping at AlissaCohen.com on EVERYTHING in the store until Monday night!!!!!
