The main reason I was going to the SEED Event was to hear David Wolfe speak. When we first got to the stadium we ran into him and got a chance to speak for a minute. He was sipping on his Chaga mushroom tea and had the biggest smile on his face. His energy was grand, solid, and very heart warming. There was a holistic power about him where I could feel a connection verses a separation and I loved that about him. To me that shows how David Wolfe is walking his talk and is really here for the people. I shared my gratitude for all the inspiration and knowledge I had gained from him over the years and I also asked him an important question that I get a lot from people; do people with blood type-O HAVE to eat meat? He said no. The only difference is type-O’s have a higher tolerance to meat (and junk food in general) but absolutely don’t need meat to be healthy. David is a Type O himself and has been on a plant-based diet for over 20 years. He mentioned that grains and beans aren’t ideal for blood type-O. He also said that people with blood type-A who eat meat are guaranteed to loose 20 to 25 years of their lives since they have very little tolerance for it. Crazy!! His speech was incredible, funny, and super empowering. Thank you David Wolfe
The rest of the day was filled with live music, raw/superfoods, and AMAZING speakers such as Adam McLeod, Gerald Celente, Jeffrey Armstrong and Deepak Chopra. The whole event was all about inspiring, educating, and empowering people to think for themselves, take charge of their own health, connecting with their inner power, and live through their heart. Gerald Clemente, the #1 Trend Forecaster in the World really let it rip on how our world is being run by “money junkies” (politicians), and gave the people great advice on how to prepare for the future. Jeffrey Armstrong, Western Master of Eastern Wisdom opened the hearts of every soul in the audience and got everybody to chant and go into their heart, a place called home… I had tears. Adam McLeod, the World’s Most In Demand Healer gave out some really powerful tools on how to work with our own body energy in order to heal ourselves. We missed Deepak Chopra, but I’m sure it was an enlightening experience.
I am so grateful for this experience! Events like these give me hope and confidence that the world can really transform into a positive and loving space, and this vision is the world I want to bring children to someday J
First I want to thank Squamish CAN for supporting this event, it feels GOOD to use government funds to offer a valuable experience for the community – for FREE
This workshop on Tuesday was on DEHYDRATION. I wasn’t sure if people expected to be learning how to dehydrate grapes and apples but I think they were pretty excited to leave feeling like making gourmet raw food can be easy AND tasty! We made Corn Tortilla Wraps (filled with cashew sour cream, peppers, avocados and chipotle salsa), Crackers (with fermented cashew cheese), Fruit Leather (rolled with almond butter and honey), and Macaroons to wrap it up!
I loved how everyone engaged and asked many questions, it felt more like a conversation where people really got to connect with each other and the food. I strongly encourage these types of events to allow communities to grow together, share ideas and support each other.
Come and learn how to “Preserve Your Harvest”. I’ll be teaching food dehydration on Tuesday and we’ll be making and tasting yummy snacks like Sweet Onion Bread, Corn Tortillas, Fruit Leather and Veggie Patties.. all Raw! Check out the following dates on Waterbath Canning with Carolyn Morris and Pressure Canning with Krystle TenBrink. This is a FREE event!

My raw workshop in Seattle was a lot of work, but fully worth it!!! Much like an excellent dish, there was plenty of preparation and work, all made worth it by the payoff of sharing good food with friends.
Seattle is such an incredible place for those interested in health, food, and environment, and was such a cool location for my workshop where i was able to share tips for living raw. With the help of Air, Puget Sound Creative, MAKERS, and Bluewater Vodka the workshop was a complete success: inspirational, instructive, social and fun.
I was blown away by MAKERS, where the event was held at. Those new to raw foods were surprised to find a menu that included my raw flat bread pizza, yummy drinks and raw cheesecake. As we ate, the looks on the girls faces said it all! At that point I thought to myself “mission accomplish!” [Read more...]
One reason I love Squamish so much is for the community. There’s really something about living in a town where people care and are supporting each other however they can. There is also a lot of talent and creativity in this area, and the Farmers Market really brings out the best! [Read more...]
