"I am absolutely loving my Raw Chef Classes! Each time I watch one of the online videos, I feel motivated and inspired to get in the kitchen and "cook"! Elaina has a beautiful way of expressing her vast knowledge about raw foods and nutrition in a way that feels inviting and supportive. Because of her genuine approach, I feel as though I know her even though we have yet to meet in person. I have been a vegan for many years and I have wanted to learn how to include more raw foods into my life, yet I have felt afraid of failing until now. This course has sparked an inner belief in myself that had been asleep. Elaina's loving kindness is contagious and she delivers the recipes and nutritional information in a way that makes me want to keep making new recipes every day. This course has been such a gift for me! I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to improve their lifestyle one recipe at at time! I am so grateful for the opportunity to share vegan treats with people and to watch them awaken to the wonderful world of plant based eating! Thank you so much!"

WHAT OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING
"I absolutely LOVE this course, how it is set up so we can work at our own pace. Your videos are informational and the course package that comes with it has good information included. I made the lasagna a couple of days ago and it's amazing as is the bell pepper dressing! I even shared it with my colleagues at a catering company I work for and they (big meat eaters) thought it was fantastic!!!" - Liz Perras, USA
"The bread loaf came out incredible. It was so nice to have "bread" again after almost a year of not eating any processed store-bought bread. Thank you for this amazing recipe." - Jeneil Fraga
"Buckwheat Pita Chips: I absolutely LOVE that you use a lot of buckwheat and sunflower seeds in your recipes other than a lot of nuts! And they are so far the best recipes I’ve have tasted from a raw food course! This recipe was quite easy. The only thing I find difficult is spreading it even on the dehydrator tray.I scored the chips but when I was breaking them apart they were breaking; but no biggie, they still tasted amazing. They pair really well with beet hummus which is what I was eating them with." - Crystal Bonnet, Canada
"I looooovvveeee being a Raw Chef and teaching people how to create amazing food from plants. I'm exactly where I'm meant to be!!! Thank you Pure Joy Academy!"
