Dear fellow raw foodie,

If you’re tired of making energy balls and bowls of lumpy gloop…

trufflesraw dessert

If you want to make more delicious raw food (and you don’t want to buy lots of specialist equipment) …

If the raw food you eat has got bit samey …   

If you are currently piecing together what feels like 972 tutorials on YouTube and a further 654 blogs and want making raw food to be a lot simpler 

...let me tell you, you could be creating raw food like this:

Raw Chef Low Sugar Essentials is an online raw food self study course for people who are interested in learning foundational raw food skills.

Can you relate to any of this?

  • You have started on the raw food path but you’re struggling to find something delicious... or 

  • It’s got a bit samey and you’re ready to make everyday raw food without a shedload of nuts...  or

  • You’ve made some raw desserts but you struggle with raw food mains and everyday meals

  • You would love to add in more everyday raw food beyond ‘chuck-everything-in-the-blender’ smoothies, date and nut energy balls and chopped salad…but you DON’T want to spend hours in the kitchen

  • You are happy with a blender and don’t want to spend money on any more expensive equipment 

  • You would like to feel more confident making tummy nourishing fermented foods that build your immune system without chomping through a whole lot of sauerkraut 

  • You need to learn a few principles of how raw food works so you can free style a bit in the kitchen 

  • You are looking for food to entice the whole family and to share with your friends that will impress them and not leave them thinking you’re crazy…

This is exactly why I created Raw Chef Low Sugar Essentials
