My Certifications

By Kim Smith

I'm currently enrolled in Rouxbe Cooking School's Professional Plant-Based Nutrition Certification course. The workload along with everything else I do during the week will keep me from posting what I am doing during the course, but I'm taking lots of pictures and will be happy to share after I graduate. 

In 2012, I received my certification in Plant-Based Nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Foundation and Cornell University. I would highly recommend this course if you are planning to teach about plant-based nutrition.

Creamy Cucumber Soup

Juice of 1/2 lemon, 2 cucumbers, 4 or 5 celery, then blend with an avocado & Himalayan crystal salt to taste. Optional: a tsp of cold pressed sesame oil. In this photo, I garnished it with hemp seeds & pea sprouts.

For My Raw Food Friends...

The Code vitamins by Garden of Life are not a whole food raw vitamin. The vitamins are synthetic isolated vitamins that are fed to a yeast. This is not new technology, it's been used by synthetic vitamin companies for many years. Your body doesn't recognize these as food. In fact your body not being able to recognize it as food will see it as a toxin & can have an inflammatory response as well as storing it in your fat cells. It makes me quite upset to see a company trying to jump on the "raw" bandwagon & try to "sell" junk to raw fooders. If you want to supplement your diet, go for the super foods such as spirulina & goji berries, as well as chia seeds & greens. There are so many wonderful small companies that really care about your health & not their new angle to make money.

Some of you may or may not know that my husband Sean & I own a health food store in Las Vegas, NV. We like to keep educated on supplements & updated whats going on in our industry. We're happy to share what we've learned.
