Raw Food Nutrition: From Foundations to Fine Tuning
Saturday, April 2
12 noon to 5 pm
Rick and Karin Dina, the creators of the Science of Raw Food Nutrition series of courses, are returning to Portland to offer this 5-hour course on the science of raw food nutrition.
The Dina's methodology is to introduce their workshop participants to a variety of nutritional approaches to living the raw lifestyle and to foster a discussion and examination of general nutritional best practices, as well as an investigation of what approach will work best for the individual student. They help to cut through the dogma of the various approaches and get to the core of the nutritional science, so that every participant will be better able to embark on the raw food diet with an enhanced understanding of how to progress towards optimal health.
This 5 hour workshop will cover:
- The natural hygiene approach
- The Hippocrates / Ann Wigmore approach
- The gourmet raw food approach
- Several thorough nutrient analyses of each
- The potential pros and cons of each
- Fructose: Science vs. hearsay
- Fats and Oils: Science vs. hearsay
- Cooked Food: Science vs. hearsay
- Overcoming common pitfalls
- How to increase your likelihood of success
- Developing an individualized approach
- Developing a sustainable approach
- Comprehensive note packet included!
- Presented in easy to follow power point format
The workshop will be from 12 noon to 5:00 pm at Salt Fire and Time in NW Portland. As an introduction of themselves to the community, they are offering this 5-hour workshop to the Portland community for just $99. You won't get this quality and depth of information for this price anywhere else!
We will also be hosting a potluck dinner Friday night (April 1), with an informal one-hour lecture and time to get to know Rick and Karin. Please come to one of these events to support the development of an ongoing curriculum with these fine instructors.
