Testimonials from Students

I gave you 5 out of 5 stars, but I’d give you 10 if I could because your course is so excellent! I’ve wanted to improve my diet but for so many years I kept getting discouraged because I found no systematic approach to this complicated activity called eating. I didn’t feel that I would benefit much from a haphazard, random approach. Now, with your course, I have a comprehensive approach to healthy eating and I’m so grateful to you for making this possible. Your course is changing my life for the better - I am so grateful to you! Thank you Evita!”

Ken H.

Dear Evita, I can’t thank you enough for this course! It is so incredible, clear, objective and so complete! I learned so much with it! I became a vegan recently because I felt I had to. But I wanted to know how and learn about all the foods so that I could become a healthy vegan. And this was possible with your course. I keep doing research about veganism and the wonderful foods that are beneficial for us, but always having your course as a reference and base! :) Thank you so much! Many kind regards to you. Mary :)

Mary C.

This course earns more than 5 stars. The knowledge is conveyed in a very natural way, it is fun to listen to the lecturer and the extra material goes beyond any frame. From my point of view, there is no room for improvement. It was really fun and I will gladly look into the tips for refreshing from time to time. And the recipes are great, very easy to cook and super tasty.

Heike S.

This course is very good. There is so much conflicting information about what we should be eating/not eating. The information presented here helps to clarify that issue, as well as providing many examples of healthy meals and how to prepare them.

Brenda P.

Fantastic course that educates and illuminates one about the most important topic of life, which is right nutrition.

Rafi D.

I really liked this course as it was very informative specifically regarding the beans and grains section. I am a vegan and wanted to find a course that covered the optimum way to eat and provide all nutrients.

Kelly G.

This course was awesome, a lot of new things learned, and is very well presented, to the point.
