David Wolfe Seminar Oct 30th, 2011

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!

David Wolfe Seminar

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.

Raw food & product stands

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!

I recommend David’s Books:

    Be careful with “superfoods” Lonneke! raw cacao is VERY high in theobromine,which is a toxic chemical and very addictive.I just got done with two months of raw foods and ended up very sick and iron deficient.I would take any raw foods “expert” advice with A TRUCKLOAD of salt.Having whole grains,beans and legumes,along with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables,I feel better already.There are no substantial claims and medical research that most the of “superfoods” are actually more beneficial for us (Goji vs.blueberries,say).So be aware of what you are consuming,both in your mouth and in your mind.:-)
