Healthy Living Series Kicked off With Raw Lifestyle Food Preparation Workshop

On Friday, November 14 we kicked off our Healthy Living Event Series with Joan Jackson of Living Raw. 

Hosted by Zebra Organics and Sky Island Organics, the evening was a great success. Joan inspired the audience with some delicious raw food recipes, including a zucchini pasta in a flavourful tomato based sauce.Everyone enjoyed the evening, with a few guests accepting the invitation to come up and prepare some food, on their own, with Joan’s guidance.

Team members from both Zebra Organics and Sky Island Organics were on hand to offer insights and support to the group.

Thank you to everyone that attended. Here are some highlights from the evening:

Note taking to remember ingredients and steps

Key ingredients for zucchini pasta:

Pistachios – Garnishing your pasta dish with pistachios diversifies the texture and provides a satisfying crunch. Sky Island Organics offers Organic Sprouted Pistachio kernels.

Olive oil – Tossing your zucchini pasta in Zebra Organic’s Gourmet Peruvian Olive Oil will add a rich flavour to the dish.

A tip from Joan: Use Organic Pitted Botija olives in your zucchini pasta recipe, for their super rich, delicious, full flavour.


Next month we will welcome Deanna Moore, the founder of Chocolatl, to present a chocolate workshop. The event will take place from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm on December 5 at 870 E Research Drive, Unit 6, Palm Springs, California.
