Welcome to the Suppers Programs For Living/Raw
Living Suppers is a learn-by-doing support group for people who want to incorporate more raw food in their diet and lifestyle.
You don’t have to be a raw foodist to benefit from Living Suppers meetings. At these meetings, the entire meal is made of the
freshest, healthiest, living foods: raw fruits and vegetables, seeds and nuts, sprouts, fresh herbs, spices, oils and
flowers. And you may also find foods that have been prepared in a dehydrator and come out like flat breads or chips, still
filled with nutrients because they have not been baked.
Living Suppers meetings are not designed for a specific population, unlike many Suppers meetings that cater to the needs of
special groups like diabetics or people in recovery. Rather, the focus is on learning to prepare delicious, abundant and
beautiful raw meals that promote vibrant health, regardless of your diagnosis.
As a newcomer to raw food preparation, you may find the methods and preparations unfamiliar; and the equipment is all
different. Emphasis is placed on learning. Participants can expect to make raw soups, green and fruit smoothies, of course
salads and slaws, raw versions of familiar favorites, like “spaghetti” using string-thin raw zucchini instead of pasta or
patties made from ground nuts and herbs, and “cheeses” made from soaked cashews or macadamia nuts. Desserts are also on the
menu, usually made of delectable combinations of fruit, grain, nuts, and spices.
Why Eat Living Foods?
It’s really quite simple. Raw foods help you feel alive because they’re alive. They change how you feel because they are
packed with nutrients and contain the enzymes needed to digest them. How enzymes work is complicated in the details but
the basic concept is very simple: every process in every cell in your body is mediated by enzymes. Enzymes make life
happen. With cooked food, your body has to use up its own enzymes to digest the cooked food. Further, heat destroys
vitamins while grilling and frying actually create carcinogens.
Who Might Be Interested In Attending Raw Food Meetings?
You can start today experiencing the life-giving force of living foods. As with all Suppers programs, Living Suppers
offers participants the opportunity to experiment and make your own observations about how your body responds to
specific foods. In the end, how you feel is the most important data. Read more:
