If you’re one of the few people who haven’t yet given up on a New Year’s resolution for healthier eating, a local raw foods expert is offering a weekend mini-boot camp you might want to check out.
Sally Miller, owner of Eats of Eden, will lead an eight-hour workshop – divided into two sessions: “Foods That Can Heal” and “Moving into Raw Foods” – on March 4 and 5. She’ll teach participants about the “Living Foods” philosophy (that all enzymes, vitamins and minerals the body needs to heal and maintain optimal health are found within the foods we eat) and show how proper food preparation is the key to unlocking these benefits.
From 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. that Friday, she’ll focus on the four main foods for healing based on the “Ann Wigmore” program, which includes the concepts of blending and fermenting food. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. that Saturday, she’ll focus on food selection and shopping.
Over the course of both days, everyday recipes will be shared and you’ll get “hands on” experience preparing (and tasting) some of them. You’ll learn how to make dairy replacements, breakfast and lunch items, plus hear important information about organic fruit and vegetable selections. You’ll even learn how to set up your own raw foods kitchen.
This workshop will take place in a private home in Charleston, so space is limited. The cost is $227.90, which includes all instruction, recipes and food throughout the weekend, plus a course manual and all taxes. Reservations and payment are due by Friday, Feb. 25.
