Does Hawaii-Live prescribe to any one raw food philosophy?
Our presenters come from various raw food backgrounds. Some have been trained in Natural
Hygiene, Ann Wigmore or a combination of both. All of our presenters use their
experience with raw foods backed up by their studies in nutrition and
presenter has used their knowledge to find the diet that works best for them,
realizing that everyone is different and at a different stage. Our goal is for you
to become the healthiest and happiest you can be instead of imposing an inflexible
dogma. With that being said, we collectively agree that fresh organic fruits and
vegetables should be the cornerstone of any healthy diet, and condiments such as oils,
spices, salt, and concentrated sweeteners should be used sparingly, if at
all. We believe in simple,
healthy, and delicious raw food!
types of food will be served at Hawaii-Live?
Due to the tropical nature of Hawaii, tropical fruit will be what
is most widely available and served. Due to Hawaii's humidity and natural climate
you will find that your body will acclimate to the new surroundings and start to crave
what is most plentiful and readily available: fruit! In the morning we will serve tropical
fruit in pieces or perhaps in a smoothie. Lunch will consist of more fruit and
perhaps greens and avocados. Dinner will be a beautifully prepared vegetable dish
that we will show you how to prepare at home. A sample days menu might look like this:
Breakfast: Tropical Fruit, Papaya, Banana, Smoothies
Lunch: Tropical Fruit, Avocados, Lettuce
Dinner: Cucumber Pasta with Sweet Macadamia Nut Dressing
Snacks: Green Coconuts and Tropical Fruit
