Traffic is something we just don't have in Fort Bragg, so I wasn't prepared for the congestion on the LA freeways! But it is all worth it when we have the opportunity to meet great people like the ones at Au Lac in Fountain Valley on Friday night. Many of them told us they have wanted to attendLiving Light for years and some decided tonight that they aren't going to wait any longer -- after all, money sometimes manifests out of nowhere for other things, why not for something as important and life altering as this! After all, nothing is as important as our health! And, if food doesn't taste great, forget it -- we would rather die than eat food we don't like! It isn't enough for it to be healthy -- it has to taste good. Nothing like great tasting food to get people inspired!
It was also wonderful seeing Chef Ito again! Ito graduated from Living Light 12 years ago and has become one the the best chefs in the world. His restaurant is one of my favorites -- you can really taste the LOVE. Thanks, Chef Ito, for spreading the love and light one bite at a time!
Next stop is Yummy: Vegan Culinary Classes in Pasadena.
Yummy's vegan culinary class on Saturday was a yummy experience for all concerned. Dan and I had a great time showing attendees (some not even vegan, but curious) how to make Raw Food for Cooked Food Lovers -- they were blown away! Even the raw food enthusiasts in attendance said they had no idea raw foods could be so exciting and delicious. I love big bold flavors and it comes through in my style of cuisine and the recipes in our book, Raw Food for Dummies, as well as what we teach at Living Light. Lot's of people said they want to attend the school, even if only for our weekend entree level classes, FUNdamentals of Raw Living Foods and Sharpen-Up Your Knife Skills. Others said they were ready to do as our graduate Michael Miller told them he did -- and start a new rewarding career as a teacher and chef.
The next stop in our solar-powered RV (better known as Gracie) is La Jolla; then on to San Diego and back to LA before returning to the Bay Area. Looking forward to meeting more great people interested in making healthy living delicious!
