RAWlistic Living, a living lifestyle company who provides a variety of services to consumers looking to live more Organically, will be offering a series of “New Year, New You” Workshops for the community. These workshops will take place at The Loft in Downtown Pomona’s Historic Arts Colonies.

Saturday, January 5, 2013 at 2pm, RAWlistic Living will provide a FREE “Introduction to the Plant-Based Diet” workshop addressing common questions about the Vegetarian and Vegan diets. Participants will learn about what the diet entails, the nutritional factors and how it ultimately can affect overall health. Email Matanah Simmons at RAWlisticLiving@gmail.com to reserve a seat.

Sunday, January 6, 2013 at 2pm, RAWlistic Living will provide a hands-on workshop entitled: “Demystifying the Plant-Based Diet” which will include general information, as well as food demonstrations, recipes, tastings, as well as tips on how to live more organically on a budget. RAWlistic is extending an introductory price for this workshop at $25. CLICK HERE to secure your seat.

“Living a Vegan or Vegetarian lifestyle has sort of become a lifestyle synonymous with certain classes or tax-brackets. To have access to fresh, organic, affordable whole foods is a necessity for ALL Living beings. This is why we decided to provide a free workshop for the community,” says RAWlistic Founder, Matanah Simmons.

The RAWlistic Living workshop on Sunday, January 6th, includes general and specialized classes centered around the plant-based diet which includes food demonstrations, recipes, tastings as well as tips on how to live more organically on a budget. These paid workshops help to finance the free workshops. Simmons continues, “I think it is very important to reach the community and provide alternatives to the mainstream Western diet that is leaving Americans obese, diseased and looking for homeostasis.”
