Alissa teaching the class is a true gift- her energy and passion for raw food is contagious. And being able to have these intense days with Alissa truly changed my life.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You are amazing and enlightening. Thank you for having the program. Thank you for your talents. Thank you for the nurturing food and environment. You are perfect!


Yes! This class provided a very well thought out presentation method to reach the masses searching for true health. I haven’t quite seen any like this out there. This whole program was superbly orchestrated. Well done!

They say without vision, people perish. Well, of course I had vision and lots of ideas yet had not launched or embarked on them. Now having taken this training with Alissa I have gained a much stronger perspective. And I feel I am that much closer to sharing the message with others. When I teach Alissa’s classes, it will be one of my greatest joys to help all who chose to be their best. Thank you so very much for having perfected my vision.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being who you are and all you have done. You are a true joy! Simply wonderful! I will always appreciate these past few days and cherish your love and care! You are a real” authentic” and a most beautiful soul!


The class exceeded my expectations by far! I chose to come to learn how to live the raw food lifestyle and learn to teach others. That was accomplished making the class worth it in of itself. The connections, relationships, friendships and personal and spiritual growth were all icing on the cake making this experience priceless.


Alissa- I don’t know what your religious beliefs are, but I know that God gave you this vision. And what a simple way to live- on living foods. I am so very grateful that you shared your dream and that you took so many steps to make this a simple and practical reality for me. Not just the recipes but the thought processes and the business aspect. I consider it a privilege to be a part of your mission and your dream. It was wonderful to be fed, pampered and completely nourished. Thank you for taking care of me!


Alissa demonstrated how simple and easy this lifestyle is and gave me the confidence that I can be successful. In addition to the food, the class helped me discover more of who I am, rediscover passions I had left behind and opened my eyes to all the possibilities that exist in the world.

Thank you for an excellent class and the experience of a lifetime!


Alissa inspired me to “put it out there.” I have a heartfelt passion however, I let work and life sidetrack me at times. Alissa, you inspired me to be true to my heart at all times. I will no longer be sidetracked by life but live it more fully. I will finish my journey of my heart and then “put it out there”.

I first came to this class to learn more about raw foods. I quickly learned that I already know all I needed to know about raw food and that I was making it complicated for no reason. I did gain more knowledge about business and tactics. Most importantly I am 5 days raw and I don’t feel deprived, hungry or have any cravings. So I know I can do it. I also opened a doorway to a pathway that I have been ready to walk down for a long time.

Thank you for the whole experience. I know this took a lot of energy out of you as well. It’s hard to put into words how I feel but it’s surreal to feel such a major shift in a lifestyle you have been living for so long.

I love- the info, the structure, the incredible people, the freedom you have given me to pursue my dreams and the food!!!


Inspired to continue through- A great booster shot. Alissa- what a great inspiration. A wonderful role model. And the food is great too!


The class gave me more than I expected! It gave me what I needed even though I didn’t realize from the beginning it was what I needed. I have been searching for my mission, but it has eluded me for years. I think this is the beginning- the light shining through.

The demos inspired me more than I can even express. I am so grateful for listening to my heart and following the call to come here. It was without a doubt a life changing experience. Thank you with all of my heart.


I’m so excited to see the changes and life that will come out of this for myself and others. What an awesome experience. I know I’m headed down a new path and journey. I can’t wait to keep you posted on that journey. You’re so genuine and intuitive, if you ever need to bring someone else on board that would be a fit for me keep me in mind!

This is a true gift you’re giving to the world and allowing us to now give to the world.


I found a life changing career. I’m a very introverted person and I’ve met people that I can’t wait to talk to for the rest of my life.

Thanks to Alissa Cohen for making the world a better place.


It really helped me to focus on what I want. It showed me that I don’t have to wait till everything is perfect to get started. When I run out of words to describe a profound experience, I just say “Holy wow” because it is so far past wow! This was a very wonderful experience on so many levels.

Alissa, is so down to earth and so real it is really what I needed to see to run with this plan in my own way. I love the support, yet at the same time, the latitude to make it my own! Thanks Alissa for sharing your dream and your heart with the world!


How to start my own class. I’ve learned so much from Alissa that her love and conviction for raw food put everyone in the class together. So I just nodded my head like oh yeah, I learned also that I could start teaching from where I’m right now. Just like I did in teaching yoga.

The demo time was the highlight of the program. So I feel like I can start anytime. I feel very liberated. I want to be free from myself that gives me obstacles and fears. It was a very supportive group. Thank you so much for the lifetime experience.


This was a wonderful opportunity and I am thrilled that I came here. I have not only learned so much about myself but I have also made some terrific friends. I am so looking forward to sharing all of my enthusiasm with my friends, family and people I have yet to meet!

Alissa, I am so grateful to have met you. Your smile and laughter will be with me at every event and just in my daily life. I hope we can become friends and share some laughs together. Thank you for everything you have given us.


I grew as a person, met amazing people and realized why I need to stay raw and share that with others.

Thank you Alissa – you are so amazing.


The experience – the learning opportunities. I really feel prepared to go out and teach Living on Live Food courses.


Since I am a visual learner and have had Alissa’s book for awhile, the class helped me understand how to apply, follow, and live this lifestyle better.

This entire weekend/week has been such an amazing journey. I have learned so much about myself and in every aspect. I really believed that I would gain tons of raw food knowledge and I did. However, I gained so much more than that.

The connections that I made with all of my new living friends and very living mentors was incredible although the most incredible of all was the connection that I’ve made with myself! I feel really confident leaving here with all of the fabulous knowledge that I’ve obtained. I do feel much more sure of my direction.


It allowed me to grow in my knowledge of raw food- gaining comfort with ease of using the dehydrator. It also allowed me to grow personally through the format of the class and the amazing people that participated. I think that I will have no trouble continuing on raw and growing personally. I feel extremely grateful to have been a part of this experience.


I was able to overcome the fear I had of getting out of my space to support my family. The anger of having to do it has lifted. The class has given me hope of achieving my dreams for me and my family.

I am so incredibly grateful for this program. For Alissa to step out of her comfort zone and put out what she knew in the book- simple, direct. It brought me to a point that I can stay raw. Thank you for the accommodations that were made for me and my pregnancy.

I am grateful- ever so grateful- again for the Living on Live food book. Being raw has brought such incredible joy and peace to my family as well. I look forward to working with you.


Friendship development was accomplished. Thanks for the non judgmental efforts done throughout. The assistants were great!


It was both everything I had expected and hoped it would be. . .at the same time it was not at all what I expected. . . I feel calm, peaceful, optimistic, clear, real, connected, and grateful. Thank you from a deep real place and for having the courage to be true to yourself and your passions and thus blazing the trails for others to do the same.


#1 it confirmed that raw living is exactly that- that this is a lifestyle choice and I know I will stay on this path.

#2 It was the best experience to meet Alissa. Real, genuine and compassionate with the utmost integrity. Thank you!

#3 It showed me that I absolutely can and will go home and teach others!




Most definitely take the opportunity while it is being offered. Alissa is truly a rare individual who has not only chiseled her own marble, but helped an incredible number of others chisel theirs too!


I would strongly encourage anyone considering signing up for the class to do so yesterday.

I have received training and education in a variety of fields to include other living food programs. Alissa’s training stands out singularly in the ease and confidence levels I feel in absorbing this knowledge.

I equally feel more than qualified to incorporate all the knowledge Alissa gifted me with in my daily life.


Wonderful, inspiring, exciting, very worthwhile experience. It’s about the food. . . BUT. . . It’s not about the food. So much more!

I can honestly tell you that taking the certification class at Alissa’s changed my entire destiny. I got to eat her delicious food, bask in her amazing energy and open heartedness.

I loved so much the power of belief in myself and in my raw experience and in the beauty of raw foods for everyone that cemented for me at Alissa’s training. I loved that Alissa shared so much of her experience with us and taught us how to use that. I love that she inspired and informed us. I learned so much more than I can ever say. It went in depth into the food, the food presentation , teaching people and so much further.

I came back from Alissa’s training, did a few classes, saw how everything she taught me was so true, how much everyone is ready for this, and opened a living food center.

A lot to say. It was a life changing experience for me, and those are always difficult to put into words. I can also say, I took my rent money and went, feeling it was worth it. I would do it again in a heartbeat!

Alissa is a truly beautiful soul. I want to go to another training, lol.


Alissa is beyond description. Until I had the honor of being in her presence, I didn’t understand how truly life changing all of this can be.

BEING IN A CLASS WITH ALISSA ABSOLUTELY HAS CHANGED MY LIFE FOR THE BETTER. After class, I changed my job and changed everything about my life. I am so much happier and healthier. I am helping people do exactly what I love to do. Alissa believed in me and showed me how to do it. My life is fast becoming better than I ever imagined possible. Thank you Alissa for an instant opportunity to become a better – happier – person on this planet.

If you are reading this and you haven’t been to class, do yourself a favor and go! Just do it! Join the coolest people in the world who invested in a better life and a better future.”


What did I love about Alissa’s class? SO MUCH that I wouldn’t know where to start. I love that we learned it was “all about the food” and it was “not at all about the food.”

It was so worth it… like I said, just the food alone, Alissa preparing food for us! But the insight and the knowledge we gained was priceless.

Anyone thinking about taking the class needs to just do it! If you have a passion about raw food and you talk to people about it all the time, get certified and get paid for it!
