Superfood Desserts and Elixirs with Christian and Bethanne

  • Jan 28, 2012 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

People have been asking for another superfoods meetup, so Christian and Bethanne are coming back to share with us how and why they embarked on a raw food-based diet that includes superfoods, why these nutrient-dense foods are so important for us, and what these delicious foods have been doing for them nutritionally on a long-term basis. Christian and Bethanne have taken us on wild foraging hikes and Christian is also co-creator of my favorite raw bar - the WildBar. Superfoods are central to their teaching and conscious lifestyle.

All recipes are dairy-free, using the absolute highest quality ingredients available. Check out what people had to say about their meetup when they were here in last May.

Superfoods, which are correlated with longevity, genius, beauty, and spiritual growth, can be taken on a daily basis even while on a budget! As Bethanne says, “Radiant beauty comes from within; we'll show you how to infuse your body with super nutrient-dense foods that will restore, regenerate, and repair at a deep level - in a way that is accessible to all.”

The recipes we'll learn how to make are Christian and Bethanne's secret to the most delicious, cost-effective, and practical way to get medicinal quality foods into the diet with the greatest potential for producing immediate results. The elixirs are mouth-watering, low-glycemic superfood nutrition cocktails that are reminiscent of your favorite childhood drinks!


Blue Manna Lemonade
Chocolate Almond Dream Ice Cream
Creamy Cacao Pudding
Liquid Butterscotch Candy

They will have WildBars, truly raw macadamia nuts, wild blue green algae, raw cacao powder, lucuma powder, and raw cacao beans for sale.

As many know - WildBars are my all-time favorite raw bar that I take with me everywhere in case I get hungry and need a pick me up. It contains wild blue green algae and I love the chocolate Mountain Mint!

The cost of the meetup is $20; $15 for Bethanne and Christian and $5 for the venue.

(As you know, our downtown Oakland venue is asking for a small fee to hold our meetups there. Several of you have already purchased memberships for $25 for which all venue fees are waived through April. It’s still a good deal because we’re planning many meetups between now and then. If you want to get a membership for this meetup- you may waive the venue fee for this event and give me a check at the event. In return, I will give you a few gifts: a laminated folder by the Hippocrates Institute on various raw food subjects such as superfoods, juicing, dehydration, introduction to raw foods ($8 value), and Kaia pumpkin seeds. Some people have gotten so excited about them they wanted to go to the website and order them all.

The meetup will go from 2-5pm.

    At some point I'm going to adequately put in words what makes this meet up so great in my opinion. They are both so informative and just pack the demo with lots and lots of things that everyone needs to know about. They offer very simple ways of enhancing our health- so that people only just started on the path can feel the effects, even as they gradually introduce more raw into their diets. I have much more to say but will save it for the next time they come- I thoroughly recommend that people take their chocolate classes and come on a wild foraging walk- we're planning one
