3 Healthful Tips from California’s Best Raw Food Chef School

Cherie Soria Living LightSince 1998, Living Light Culinary Institute has educated and inspired people to create delicious, health-promoting raw food for themselves and their families. In today’s climate, with health care costs on the rise, baby boomers reaching retirement age, a childhood obesity epidemic, and an increase in degenerative diseases like cancer, heart disease, and diabetes, it is vital for people learn how to stay healthy.

At Living Light Culinary Institute we’ve discovered that the best way to do that is through a plant-based high raw vegan diet.  We specialize in teaching our students both how to make healthy raw food recipes and how to instruct others in the art and science of raw food nutrition. We also thoroughly prepare our students for a viable career path in the fast growing field of raw vegan cuisine.

Tip #1 Make Raw Food Taste Delicious

Living Light founder and director Cherie Soria learned at an early age that people respond to delicious food. Even when health is at stake, people won’t choose healthy food if it is not tasty and satisfying. Therefore, our company motto and statement of purpose is “Making Healthy Living Delicious.”  We do not take this motto lightly, since we know that maintaining optimum health is not possible if people don’t enjoy the familiar and comforting foods they are accustomed to. Living Light Culinary Institute teaches students how to make healthful, delicious raw food recipes – everything from smoothies, juices, salad dressings, “burgers” and lasagna to superbly delicious, yet healthful raw desserts that are low-glycemic, gluten free, and sugar free.DanCherie with vegi basket_3322
