Our Associate Chef and Instructor Training is finished  for this session, and I’ m sad to see it go.  It was a great time with a really fun group!  I know that they will put their training to good use –  some of them are already beginning!

Chef and Instructor Graduate Stephanie Schlosser

Super ambitious Stephanie Schlosser not only completed all of her homework assignments and prepared for her demo, but also managed to post a culinary video in our Hot Raw Chef Sweet Valentine Video Recipe Contest.  I’ve posted her video below so that you can see what a great job she’s done.  She also teaches raw food classes to children. Check out her ideas and recipes!

Another impressive student is Ayana Medley, owner of 

Chef and Instructor Graduate Ayana

 Sassy Chef.  Ayana is already a classically trained vegan chef.  She specializes in healthy vegan versions of traditional comfort food.  Ayana came to Living Light in order to learn more about raw vegan foods so that she can incorporate them into her business!  Now that she’s a Certified Raw Food Associate Chef and Instructor, not only will she be making more great foods, she’s gained more experience and confidence to teach classes as well!

It was great to meet each of our students,  and I look forward to hearing about their continued journey and success stories as they travel the raw food road.

The Group Dynamics have certainly changed in class!

Last week the students were struggling a bit, while learning a lot about who they are and how to deal with each others’ personalities. There were some groups who had challenges, and although  everyone in the group would agree that they were growing and learning, there were times when it was tough.  As a teacher I want to guide students and provide structure, while giving them room to develop, thrive, and cultivate their own ideas.

The students rotate groups about once a week. They weren’t supposed to change groups until Tuesday, but by Monday this group was chomping at the bit, so we changed groups early and what a difference it has made!

Yesterday the groups finished 10 minutes early during every hands on session.  Some groups finished 30 minutes early and were  helping other groups.  The students are really happy and working as a team again, and they’ve learned a lot about how to work together in a group setting.  Everyone is smiling today.  This self knowledge is priceless in the work place.  I feel very confident that this group is going to go out into the world and do great things!
