Life Just Got a Lot More LusciousWhip Up Tantalizing, Simple Recipes with Deckopedia’s The Raw Food Beginner’s Deck
Picture yourself on the French coast. By day, you practice yoga and get a hot stone massage. By night, you feast on fresh, revitalizing raw foods. Silky chocolate tart, anyone? This, friends, is the raw food lifestyle done right.
Deckopedia’s The Raw Food Beginner’s Deck captures that essence, as it was written by a French certified raw food chef and health coach, Emilie McBride, who runs retreats in glamorous enclaves like Cap D’Antibes.
Trained in raw cuisine in Bali, McBride is the founder of Biarritz Ocean Detox Yoga. She has taken her skills and passion and poured them into Deckopedia’s The Raw Food Beginner’s Deck. This user-friendly deck of cards is like a cookbook, a Raw Food workshop and a personal chef packed into one little box. You’ll find pantry and shopping checklists that make it easy to plan menus. Tips on techniques. And 31 luscious, timesaving recipes, with inspiring photos and easy-to-follow instructions. You’ll be whipping up kale chips, nori rolls and your own nut milk in no time.
“I love to inspire people with the benefits of raw gourmet food and show people that pure, nutritious ingredients can make up a blissful meal that your body will thank you for,” says McBride. McBride’s cuisine even caught the attention of 11-time world champion surfer Kelly Slater, who had her do his catering and that of the whole Quicksilver team while they were in Portugal.
The deck includes McBride’s tricks for how to make vegan cheeses, recipes for detoxifying juices, and ways to use healing super foods such golden berry and mesquite powder to boost vitality. A few recipes offer more advanced techniques, like using a dehydrator to create onion bread, so that even serious chefs will find plenty to explore.
The Raw Food Beginner’s Deck, which retails for $19.95, is a great gift for foodies, vegans, vegetarians and anyone who wants to pursue a holistic lifestyle. The deck is also the perfect size for a stocking stuffer. Give the gift of good health and good taste.
