Certified nutritional practitioner Marni Wasserman packs a full day of knowledge and nourishment into the Raw Urban Detox Retreat. First, participants attend a yoga class led by an industry expert at the beginning of the day, and then meet up with Wasserman to learn how to make an açai-berry smoothie to accompany a raw breakfast. A workshop based on Wasserman’s eBook Cleansing with Super Foods follows.
During lunch, she teaches participants how to craft raw nori rolls and kale slaw, and then leads a beauty lesson using natural-skincare products before introducing students to detoxifying green juice during a juice break. At dinner, she and her students create a raw Italian meal and enjoy chocolate-avocado pudding before watching a documentary on health. Retreats are held from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Marni Wasserman's Food Studio & Lifestyle Shop
Marni Wasserman admits there was “a time I thought low-fat yogurt and low-calorie snack packs were the epitome of healthy eating.” Though she’s been a vegetarian since she was 13, she often turned to prepackaged foods rather than the plant-based foods she now embraces. After earning certificates from both the Institute of Holistic Nutrition in Toronto and The Natural Gourmet Culinary Institution in New York, Wasserman has turned healthy eating into a career with Marni Wasserman's Food Studio & Lifestyle Shop.
Through cooking classes, children’s day camps, kitchen makeovers, and informative articles, Wasserman helps others overhaul their diets to include an abundance of earth-culled ingredients. These ingredients can improve immune systems and infuse them with energy more naturally than electrically charged hamburgers.
