Review of Kate Magic's Food Prep Class
This entry was posted on June 16, 2012 by kate.
I receive so much lovely feedback from events, it's one of the many things that makes doing this job so worthwhile. Here's a particularly lovely one that I wanted to share with you from Chloe Popplestone of Surrey.
I truly believe that attending a food prep class is one of the very best things you can do to fast track you along the raw path. The information I can share with you in a day can make a quantum difference to your understanding and appreciation of the raw diet. I'll be doing less of these next year as I transition into doing more of the five day courses, as well as travelling further afield, so if I'm in your area, please don't miss the opportunity to come and get the Raw Magic download. If you'd like to host a food prep class in you area, and have a minimum of 8 friends who would like to attend, please email email@example.com to set one up.
Here's what Chloe had to say.
I went to your Raw Magic in Guildford course with my Mum, and her man, David. I've been meaning to email you ever since. I just wanted to let you know how amazing and pivotal that day was for me.
You really are an inspiration. You just sat in your chair and *gave* to us all for six hours. You gave of yourself, you gave a wealth of information, and insight, and tools, and experience, and practical tips, and inspiration. And you seem to exuded an inner peace and kindness and quiet generosity and alkalinity.
Afterwards, I rushed home to get to my one year old son and husband, and didn't really start to process the day until the Monday, when I noticed changes in myself and in my thinking.
Some of the changes are more simple. For example, your tip about salt-sour-sweet-spice has literally revolutionised my kitchen! I used to try and follow recipes but didn't have all the ingredients and didn't know what to substitute and ended up wasting food, but now I know how to rustle up something from what I have available and it still taste amazing, not one-dimensional. I am starting to be able to make things that my not-raw husband actually likes - miraculous!
And my Greenstar is having a holiday in the attic because right now with a curious toddler, smoothies and juices in the Vitamix are all I can manage and it might not be purist, but that's OKAY because it's working for me :-)
I loved hearing you talking about your boys, in particular your eldest boy who is going through a teenage rebellion and I was thinking (and my Mum agrees!) that you are a Wise Woman, in the true sense of the words, and that is a rare thing today.
Other changes are deeper . Lots of things you said really struck a chord with me and I am finding that I am finally making changes that in the past have felt like a fight, but now are coming naturally with ease and grace.
I don't know what you did, or how you did it, but I seem to have taken away much more than just the words I heard, if that makes sense. And I wanted to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart. You're an amazing woman.
