This weekend, I took my friend Jose Derks to hear health guru David Wolfe speak in Amsterdam! It was time again to get inspired, and learn more about Superfoods! David is crazy about raw chocolate, avocados and all the other Superfoods he believes in. I saw him speak the first time when he came to my then-school at Integrative Nutrition in New York City. I thought he was one of the most exciting speakers! This Sunday, he was also here to promote his book “Eating for Beauty” that was published in dutch!
The event was sold out (!) so about 600 people of all shapes and colors, were sitting together listening to David speak for 5 hours. Actually we left before he finished, because we had to drive back home for 1.5. hours. He is known to go on with his speaking, if he really gets into it, which is amazing because I love exciting speakers! But my mind was overloaded with So much good information, I am sure more information my brain would have not registered anyway I think?
I personally learnt the most about superfood mushrooms: Chaga Mushroomand Reishi mushroom. Read more about David and his story on Chaga mushroom and Reishi Mushroom. He also spoke about many other herbs, supplements, from raw chocolate to phytoplankton.
At the entrance, there were many vendors with all kinds of raw foods, books, and even a trampoline sales man (woohoo for trampolines!) So Jose stocked up on Maca, raw cocoa nibs & chia seeds (Valentina has a great recipe with chia and you can find it here.) I just bought… lots of raw chocolate! David said that chocolate keeps you healthy, and hey, anything that is a reason to eat chocolate I gladly accept! I will talk about the chocolates later on, so come back to this post sometime soon!
Don’t forget to check out David Wolfe’s Website!
