I went to Bonobo’s tonight to see and hear Brenda Cobb. She’s in town for the Raw Food Expo, and making appearances in several spots before the Expo starts. I like her book, and I was curious to see if she looked like her photo (Many people use photos that are, shall we say, older – of course, mine, which has not been Photo-shopped, looks exactly like me!)
Cobb’s talk was fascinating. I was interested to learn that she uses DNA reprogramming and aromatherapy in her program. She also spoke of some “Raw Food Experts Summit” (that’s not the exact name she gave it), composed of some “big names” in raw food (the only one I recall is Gabriel Cousens), which meets from time to time and decides the fate of the raw world. According to her this group has decided that 80/20 raw/cooked is the best way to go. To tell the truth, I believe her about this “Summit”, as I from what I know, many of the “raw food experts” do include a good bit of cooked food in their own diets (although I think their waistlines show it).
I was also happy to see is that Cobb is now selling the workbook that she uses in her trainings. It goes for a whopping $100, but, if you cannot swing the cost ($1800 – $4900), she says it is the same workshop/take-home guide that all her training attendees receive.
