Spa Eastman and Crudessence: a natural alliance

Since 2010, Spa Eastman has offered a treatment program based on the principles and benefits of living foods. The founders of Crudessence are regularly invited to give workshops during this program and have worked with the team at Spa Eastman to integrate more living foods into the regular restaurant menu of the spa. This has enabled both companies to build a strong relationship based on their combined passions and philosophies. It is therefore out of this partnership that Crudessence and Spa Eastman have chosen to collaborate on programming these new Living Food Weeks.

Living Food Weeks are a true gastronomic adventure filled with pleasures and surprises. Included are conferences and workshops given by Crudessence, complementary programs where health and nutrition professionals share their knowledge of living foods and its impact on overall health, culinary delights, culinary demonstrations, sprouting workshops, recipes, green juices, and more.
