1st March 2014

In this class Kirsty will be demonstrating how to make a green curry kelp noodle dish, and a delightful stewed apple and pear crumble using the sous vide method (water bath) to stew the fruits in order to preserve their raw qualities. Sous vide is a fantastic way to prepare raw meals, and can be done using a dehydrator to begin with.

Here is what will be demonstrated in Saturday's class.

Q: Why do we need to include more raw foods into our diet?

A: Overheating our food kills enzymes. Enzymes help you digest your food. Your body can create enzymes but that process takes a lot of energy. This process makes you feel tired and heavy after a cooked food meal. Further, the enzymes your body makes are not as efficient and effective as the ones that were destroyed in your food.

Q: Does Raw Food cure diseases?

A: Heating food again changes the pH of the food and makes food acidic. We like to eat raw alkaline foods to keep our pH at the right balance. Eating acidifying food makes your body a welcome breeding ground for disease.

Q: Will I lose weight and be able to eat 3 meals a day?

A: Thats a big YES! You can eat as much as you like and still lose weight, you will feel more satisfied, look more beautiful, and have more energy. When we eat correctly we are satisfied for longer and therefore tend to avoid snacking in between meals. You just need to learn how to prepare food differently and be more organised. This can take time but Kirsty is here to help you with that. (Kirsty Wright does not believe in dieting and thinks the diet industry is a big scam).

Q: What are the benefits of a raw food diet?

A: The raw food lifestyle benefits are endless. The major benefits are healthy weight loss and better overall health.
