View Full Version : Raw food class ideas
01-10-2007, 01:02 PM
ive been asked to teach a raw food class in a week. ill be teaching about the benefits of raw food and giving a food/tasting demo.
does anyone have easy ideas for it? Im thinking zucchini pasta with marinara, and banana ice cream, because those are simple and yummy for people who are being introduced to raw for the first time. But im trying to come up with other ideas.

how exciting! soon you'll be opening up your very own raw restuarant and i might just have to fly all the way to canada to sample your delicious looking raw creations!
i find that raw truffles/fudge are always easy to make as you just keep adding ingredients to a food processor :)
and i once demonstrated how to make a blueberry pie to a bunch of ladies from church at my mum's bible study! they were all so impressed how quick it is to make a pie! just some ideas there for you :)

maybe raw chocolate pudding using avocados? I know my fiance was really shocked that it was so good using avocados and still talks about it to people.
Alissa's avocado chutney is sure winner !! It is a great craving mexican food dish!

Because you're at Sioux Lookout why not incorporating local ingredients (was thinking wild blueberries).* Maybe scones with blueberries (scones by Cynthia were posted on this forum and they are made with almond flour - sorry could not find the link) or blueberry pudding (actually just pie filling put into glass) or the RFRW book's coconut cream with blueberries (believe it is their cherry pie recipe - just use blueberries instead).
*though I do recognize people may be 'blueberried' out in your area

Cake - date/walnut ground finely
strawberries, papapa, banana sliced
layer of nut, layer of fruit, layer of nut, layer of fruit, layer of nut, topping made from white nuts blended with lemon juice, water and a couple of dates.

Everyday I eat 2 bananas blended with 1/2 large or 1 small avocado and 150g blueberries. I eat it with a spoon as a pudding.
You could make RP's brownies.

thanks guys! Uve all been really helpful. i wish i could make it all!
razzleberry - yeah i was also thinking little truffle balls and then i can put them in little dixie cups and pass out. nice and easy.
the pudding idea is really good too. actually the funny thing is that most of the ppl signed up are women and some of them requested........u guess it! - chocolate! lol....so choco pudding and choco truffles are good. and then something savoury.

I do tried and true recipes for my demos
1. my brownies, always go over big and fast and easy to make
2. almond milkshakes, I use almond milk that I make in front of them, with ice, and dates, and vanilla beans scraped, and a dash of cinnamon, cardemon, and nutmeg, everyone loves this
3. Alissa's Marinara sauce over rawviolies, People are always impressed with the turnips as the raviolie noodles, I also use zucchini noodles too, I put two raviolies on a plate, and a 1/2 cup of zucchini noodles, and then the marinara sauce, it's looks great and easy too, plus you get to use the saladaco, which most SAD people haven't seen--so they are impressed with that
4. Alissa's date nut torte, fast easy and delicious, especially for people who don't do chocolate/carob
5. any berry smoothie, they are beautiful, and easy to make
6. banana ice cream with fresh strawberries on top, again, easy and beautiful and bananas and strawberries are always perfect together
7. Rawkinlocs cinnamon rolls, no one believes these are raw, and you can make them there, or you can just add the frosting, or have them all ready made and simply serve, but no matter what you do, take plenty, as everyone will want seconds, these are unbelievably delicious
but most of all, enjoy yourself, have fun and show them how beautiful and radiant you are as the raw foodist in the bunch, they are going to LOVE YOU!!!

THANKS raw priestess!!! i appreciate the imput.
Im going to make your brownies then instead of the little truffle balls, and then make the banana ice cream as planned - it will be a great accompaniment.
prob the zucchini and marinara too...
i have 2 hours to cover everything, so im not too sure what all i can cram in....

I've found burrito type fixings in lettuce wraps seem to go over pretty well for people new to raw.
