Breast Cancer Survivor and Founder of Elizabethâ€™s Gone Raw
- Tuesday, November 8, 6:30-8:30pm
**Attendance open to everyone, but please note that this class will have a focus on the experience of living with cancer.
Elizabeth Petty was propelled into the world of raw eating when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2009. So it began with an inordinate amount of doctor's visits and at first, she felt helpless, a bit at the mercy of doctors and the wonders of modern medicine. After much time spent contemplating the disease and hours of research, she chose an integrative approach to medicine and discovered that eating raw can be healthy and delicious.
After treatment, with her newfound joy and energy she felt compelled to merge her lifestyle with her career. Having spent 25 years in the food industry, it seemed only natural to open a raw-vegan restaurant.
In this class, Elizabeth will share her story as well as her skills as she demonstrates how we can incorporate eating raw foods into our daily lives. Participants will have the opportunity to observe Elizabeth at work in our kitchen as well as try her creations. The evening’s recipe(s) will be available to take home.
If you enjoy new culinary experiences and would like being in the supportive company of others affected by cancer, please join us. We hope it will widen your stride and brighten your smile, and the food will surprise you with its inventive tastes and textures, offering you a bit of solace in our hectic world.
