"I absolutely LOVE Elaina's courses, how it is set up so we can work at our own pace. Your videos are informational and the course package that comes with it has good information included. I made the lasagna a couple of days ago and it's amazing as is the bell pepper dressing! I even shared it with my colleagues at a catering company I work for and they (big meat eaters) thought it was fantastic!!"

STUDENT REVIEW - Creamy Cilantro Soup -"It it was incredible! I loved it, I loved the flavour and texture (I added very little water) and I was wishing I had some raw crackers to have with it, next time. I would definitely serve this soup at a dinner party, 5 stars from me!"

"Pure Joy Academy took my passion for food and healthy eating to the next level! From the daily lectures on conscious communication and thinking, to the demos and hands-on portion where you can literally taste the love energy that goes into preparing food…this invaluable experience has confirmed that I am a chef at heart who is here to help heal the world, one plant-based meal at a time! During my travels following the course, I have learned to eat more simply utilizing what is available, and my brain is constantly thinking, “how can I make this dish more raw or alive?!”

WHAT ELSE OUR GRADUATES ARE SAYING
"I am absolutely loving my Chef Trainings! Each time I watch one of the online videos, I feel motivated and inspired to get in the kitchen and "cook"! Elaina has a beautiful way of expressing her vast knowledge about raw foods and nutrition in a way that feels inviting and supportive. Because of her genuine approach, I feel as though I know her even though we have yet to meet in person. One of my favorite recipes is the Rice Paper Spring Rolls with the Sunflower Pate! Wow! What a healthy, happy treat to bring to a party! And, the variations are endless. I really love it with the crunch of the daikon. I also really love the Chocolate Clusters. I try to keep them hand at all times.... they easily fill the need for the perfect sweet treat followed with a cup of herbal tea. Yummy! I love that Elaina encourages her students to have fun and play with the recipes. I found that sometimes I felt compelled to add more of 'this' and less of 'that' and each time my dish has turned out delightfully yummy! I have been a vegan for many years and I have wanted to learn how to include more raw foods into my life, yet I have felt afraid of failing until now. This course has sparked an inner belief in myself that had been asleep. Elaina's loving kindness is contagious and she delivers the recipes and nutritional information in a way that makes me want to keep making new recipes every day. This course has been such a gift for me! I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to improve their lifestyle one recipe at at time! I am so grateful for the opportunity to share vegan treats with people and to watch them awaken to the wonderful world of plant based eating! Thank you so much!"
