What our students say
Signing up to Sayuri's the Raw Food Chef training, I let go of any expectations that came with enrolling into a training and to simply enjoy the journey and process of creating heart healthy, vibrant, colorful meals and immersing myself into new professional and personal skills focusing on plant-based meals. I was blown away with all the different cuisines that can be created using 100% raw ingredients and the standard 'how to make nut milk' which I was always fascinated with but thought the process was a tedious one. Another fascinating section was the Chinese and Macrobiotic discussions and tonics along with getting super creative with the dehydrator. Sayuri made everything look simple with her clear communication skills and a pure representation of raw, vibrant, wholesome energy. She is an absolute joy and made every day feel like it was a party - never stopped laughing or smiling around her which can make or break the energy of a training. I feel cleared out all the past while walking away with a brand new 'skill set'. Overall, an excellent intro into the plant-based world and creating our won final project took our work to a whole new level. Highly recommend this training and Sayuri's stellar team who will guide you professionally with a mega dose of laughter throughout the course.

“Dis-ease, is simply dis-harmony from nature. Working with plants and veggies bring us back into alignment. If we align ourselves with the universal energy, our body, mind & spirit function perfectly, just the way they were designed to. We firmly believe that “what we eat” is one of the easiest ways to access that alignment.”
