What if the produce you think of as so fantastic just doesn’t have the nutrient content that it should? Is your lettuce mineral poor?

In episode 19 of the Raw Food Health Podcast I talk to Don Weaver, who has been eating a raw food vegan diet for 36 years. We talk about thriving when most people his age are in physical and mental decline, and our mutual passions of gardening, growing fruit trees, improving the nutrient content of our foods through remineralization, and ratcheting up the health of the planet with improvements to agriculture.



Show Notes:

Don is the author of three ebooks:

Two, To Love And Regenerate The Earth and The Survival of Civilization (co-authored with John Hamaker) are available for free through the Soil And Health Library.

The third, Regenerate The Earth, is available through Vibrance Magazine for $12.

Remineralize The Earth is the nonprofit organization that Don Weaver is involved in.

More Energy, Happiness, And Fitness On Raw Foods With Katy Craine

Tuesday, November 13th, 2012

Want to feel better, look better, and perform better physically? Will the shift to a raw food diet really help you with all this?

In episode 12 of the Raw Food Health Podcast I talk to Katy Craine, who adopted a low fat raw vegan diet at the age of 16.

Now 20 years old, she talks about how she’s watched herself go from being a sedentary hater of exercise to a lover of physical movement, from having acne covered to skin to being blemish free, and from being overweight to lithe and toned.

Topics Covered With Katy:

1) Growing up eating a high fat diet, and how drastically that affected her health for the worst.
2) Does a raw diet hinder her socially?
3) Why she initially bought into the “overeating hype” and consumed 3,000 calories a day, and how she gained weight doing so.
5) Going from hating exercise to loving it.
6) Why fasting helped her.
7) Losing weight and maintaining it where she wants.

Also In The Podcast:

1) Why does Andrew rain on everyone’s raw food parade when it comes to the Allium family of plants?
2) How many people listen to the Raw Food Health Podcast.
3) Progress On “A Vagabond’s Guide To Chiang Mai, Thailand”.
4) The natural spring-fed pools of Austin, Texas.

Show Notes

1) Nightshade vegetables and arthritis video
2) Getting a good strength workout at a children’s playground.

Imagine losing 100 pounds and still having 300 more to go to reach your goal weight. The idea seems staggering, but that’s where Richard Widmark is today.

I talk to Richard about his goals, what he eats, where he stumbles, and how he keeps himself inspired.

Also in this episode I explain how often you should be exercising for optimal improvement and talk about some of the very cool activities I’ve found in my new home, Austin Texas.

Show Notes:

1) Our persimmon raid on The University Of Texas’s Austin campus.

2) Richard Widmark’s website, which includes links to his youtube videos.

3) Fighting Candida with the right kind of raw diet.
