“I will be the first to admit that there is also an element of vanity,” said Stoulilova. “I am a woman and want to feel good and sexy. Eating really colorful and fresh food definitely makes me feel cleaner and sexier than eating a Big Mac with cheese and fries.”
And with the overwhelming amount of information out there regarding diets and overall health, Stoulilova says her ultimate goal is to show people that it can be easy to feel good without spending an exuberant amount of money on the newest supplements or technologies.
Her workshops are designed for people who are already health conscious and are curious about experimenting with raw food. Participants will learn not only about the fundamentals of eating raw, but also how to prepare three-course meals.
But no dinner is complete without dessert. Her most popular workshop lets participants eat cake, guilt-free. “The raw chocolate workshop is designed for everyone and their kids, [and anyone who loves] to get their hands dirty with chocolate. People will be creating truffles and a chocolate bar that they will get to take home to share with their loved ones,” she said.
The workshops run on weekends from June 30th to July 8th and take place at various locations in Taipei (see registration information for details). Costs range from NT$1,500 to NT$1,700 per workshop, or NT$5,600 for all four.
Registration is required as spaces are limited. More information regarding the workshops and venues can be found by searching “Raw Taipei” on Facebook, directly visiting www.facebook.com/events/243164725794304, or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
