"The Sweet Pastries Module was one of my favorites of the course, if not the favorite. I loved the recipes and the versatility of the ingredients. I loved how the ingredients blended so well with each other to created amazing flavors and stunning desserts. I was so impressed with the chocolate cream pie, the raw rolls and the lemon raspberry cake (I was so skeptical about a zucchini cake) but the results were incredible."

"I am absolutely loving my Raw Chef Classes! 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. 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!"

"Probably one of the best desserts I have ever had. I had so much pleasure in creating this pie. Everything was right! Flavors were beautiful, it looked gorgeous – beyond this world! I will repeat this recipe over and over again!"
"I absolutely LOVE this course, 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!!!"

"The scones recipe has been a success. I did it with fewer dates and without stevia. My apples were really sweet the same for the carrots, so I didn’t need to add more sweet to the recipe. I decided to use fresh blueberries. The inside part was moist, I love it. And outside like crunchy, I am not sure if that was the idea, but it works perfectly for my batch. I shared the scones with friends, and they were so happy with them, in fact, they ate all of them. Funny when my friends eat them, knowing is vegan. So that is a very good signal. I served with “maple butter”, and it was very yummy!"
