This is more than just a certification... it's a lifestyle shift!

This course is unique in the world. There is nothing else quite like it. During our comprehensive online training we will learn a multitude of skills and techniques that will ensure confidence in the kitchen. We also dive deep into the nutrition facts and science that supports a plant-based, whole and raw foods lifestyle. Be prepared for hands-on food preparation, nutrition demos and the creation of your own gourmet meals, guided step by step the entire way by professional chefs and educators. 

If you’re looking at becoming a certified Raw Food Chef or you just want to arm yourself with nutrition knowledge and a bunch of new delicious recipes, you’ve come to the right place. You do not need to be vegan or raw or 100% of anything to take this course. We believe in trying our best and making mistakes in moderation. Which is why you’ll even see a bonus module in this course – “Cooked Comfort Foods to Drool Over” – because after 300+ students, we know that falling off the wagon is normal and to cheat a little is human. 

It’s not about what you do occasionally that will have the greatest impact on your life and overall health – it’s what you do consistently that matters. This is not another fad diet. This is life.

Wherever you are, it’s perfect. We honor where you are at. No matter what stage of your journey. You’re doing your very best with the tools and skills you have right now. 

But the exciting news is, you’re ready to make a change, a shift for the better.  At Pachavega, we’re all about small, permanent lifestyle changes. This course is for you if you’re ready and willing to make the change you’ve always wanted to and we’ll be here, guiding you the whole way! Your future is now. 

Our next Guided Year Certification begins July 2024

What is the Guided Year?

Do you think you will be one of our next Certified Raw Food Chefs? Every year over 100 students take the Raw Food Chef Certification with Pachavega but only 8 are invited to join each comprehensive Guided Year which we host only once per year. 

We offer the Raw Food Chef Certification in a Guided Year to connect more with the community and forge relationships with other like-minded souls. Doing a self-paced course is awesome for those who like to work at their own pace when they can squeeze it in. However, I recognize many of us are craving more connection and accountability. By starting and finishing together, we will hold each other responsible and on average, complete 1 module of the course per week. Within each week, you’ll have the freedom to work through the curriculum when you schedule your time. But let’s be serious. This is a serious program. There is a lot of work involved… you’re going back to school.

We look forward to welcoming you into our small community of students who will interact with each other virtually by participating in weekly calls to discuss the module of the week, wins, spills, joys and revelations. In these one hour calls hosted by Danielle Arsenault, our founder, each week we will meet with the other students on an online video Zoom call where you’ll be able to ask any question that comes up along the way. This journey is guided. You are not alone. You are fully supported.
