Learn how to Combine raw and cooked foods in your diet
Food is an indispensable part of day-to-day life and culture, and we all encounter a lot of conflicting messages about what is and is not good to eat. All the different diets and claims on the market can be confusing. With this course, informed by both the latest Western scientific research and Eastern health and medical traditions, the Conscious Health Institute offers a clear plan to help you turn the most healthful ingredients into complete meals every day.
You may be here because you have a health condition and believe diet is important to healing. You may want to move from an animal-based to a plant-based diet. Or you might want to adopt a raw food diet. We are here to help you find a diet suited to YOUR BODY and circumstance. If you are looking to heal, seeking to maximize your health and well-being, or searching for factual information about food, this is the ideal course for you.
As you proceed through 10 lessons full of text and videos, you will discover the nutritional benefits of a wide variety of foods, including fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains, and beans. Recipes from around the world will teach you how to combine these foods into delicious dishes, and then you can follow our menu suggestions to combine these dishes into balanced meals. This diet is free from animal products, gluten, processed foods, and refined sugar, and places a special emphasis on raw and organic foods and good digestion. Along the way, you’ll learn how to juice your own fruits and vegetables, grow your own sprouts, soak grains and beans, and more. You’ll also gain access to a private Facebook page where you’ll find additional information and support. If you have any questions, you can ask your instructor, who will be happy to help.
Unlike many diet plans created by chefs, the CHI course is designed by a trained professional with decades of experience in healthcare, medicine and nutrition. This diet course is not a weight-loss diet or a fad diet intended to be followed for only a few weeks. It is a deliberate, sustainable way of eating to help optimize your health over the long term. This course presents general tips and guidelines, not strict rules that everyone must follow at all times. Each person’s health and nutritional needs are slightly different, and these needs can change with time. A key aspect of physical, emotional, and mental health is learning to pay attention to your own body and to be flexible in how you take care of it. It is a good idea to meet with a healthcare professional with expertise in this nutritional approach, to get personalized guidance both before and throughout the process of changing your diet. This will help you speed up the process and INDIVIDUALIZE the DIET to your current heath condition.
We hope you find this course informative and easy to follow, and the foods tasty and satisfying. Eating well should be not just a commitment to yourself, but also a joy and an adventure. In many different ways, it should make you feel great!
