PHUKET: Phuket raw food consultant Sylvie Yaffe will host ‘Healthy Food 101: Introduction to health food and vegan-raw foods’ in Nai Harn next Thursday (March 29) evening.
Sylvie hopes to educate Phuketians about the importance of making healthier food choices, and paying attention to the ingredients in everything we eat.
Accordingly, the introductory workshop will include food demonstrations and help with reading food labels.
A graduate from the Matthew Kenney Academy in the US state of Oklahoma,
the only classically structured raw and living foods educational centre in the world, Sylvie has lived in Phuket for the last 11 years.
She is also a consultant for the Good Karma Thailand health food store.
“Because of my own relationship with food I’ve always been interested in health and nutrition”, says Sylvie.
Sylvie eats an 80 per cent vegetarian diet, and about 50 per cent raw food, which is a plant-based diet consisting of nuts, seeds, fruit and vegetables, with nothing cooked over 42 degrees Celsius.
“Raw food is the solution for me.
“It is guilt-free and every ingredient has nutritional value, when I first discovered raw food I knew this was the answer.”
In 2010 she hosted a workshop with celebrity raw food chef Ani Phyo.
So popular it was standing room only, she realised that there was local demand in learning more about healthy eating in general. Healthy Food 101 will be held at the Book Cafe in Nai Harn (bookcafephuket.com) on March 29 at 6pm.
Although free of charge, there is limited seating available, and guests must be
over 15 years-old.

The event is sponsored by Good Karma Thailand health food store (goodkarmathailand.com) and Pura Organic (puraorganic.com)
