Victoria Behm is a Certified Nutrition Specialist practitioner with a Master’s degree in Nutrition and Integrative Health, and she teaches graduate level nutrition and cooking courses online.
Suffice it to say, Victoria Behm has gathered more about healthy eating than a lot of us will ever know.
Fortunately, Victoria Behm is sharing her wealth of knowledge this Thursday at the Chattanooga WorkSpace in her class The Raw Truth: Theory to Table.
According to Behm, raw foods are cleansing, cooling, and full of live enzymes and healthy bacteria. Now that local fruits and vegetables are more readily available, it’s easier than ever to incorporate raw foods into our diet—and gain the multitude of health benefits therein, especially during summer months when we tend to be more physically active.
In her upcoming class, Behm will teach how to prepare summer-friendly raw meals, as well as discussing raw food’s multiple health benefits and when raw foods should be avoided. Students will make gazpacho, tacos, and raw juice, then sit down to enjoy their creations.
“My big dream is to empower people to eat well, feel confident in the kitchen and to finally be able to live out their own amazing purpose,” Behm explains on her website. “I firmly believe that the food we put into our bodies...is the foundation of health and healing.” Behm believes that many of us weren’t taught how to properly nourish ourselves with whole and healthful foods.
She hopes to rectify the situation, starting this Thursday at 6 p.m.
