One of the biggest difficulties with eating healthy is food preparation. Luckily, the increased demand and interest in healthier ingredients brings with it organizations that want to teach people techniques on how to prepare great food. Crudessence in Montreal is passionate about food. Their belief is that healthy and flavourful foods should be accessible to all since individual health is synonymous with the health of the environment and the community.
The Crudessence Academy offers a variety of vegan plant based classes and workshops from basics like â€śjuices, smoothies and nut milksâ€ť and â€śsproutingâ€ť to specialized and intensive classes like â€śthe mysteries of raw chocolateâ€ť, â€śliving foods for the familyâ€ť and â€śbecome a living foods chefâ€ť.
