UPDATE: If you cannot watch the video below, this one should work.

Some people don’t like the look of a healthy raw food diet.

After a grumpy old man told me eating so much fruit wasn’t normal awhile back, I set off to document a new kind of eating: “the healthy eater’s normal”.

It involves a lot more colorful variety, sweetness, and volume than most people are used to, and it bring about a new level of health and vitality.

In the video below I show off a simple salad recipe with only three ingredients which is both delicious, filling, and very different than the average person’s meal.

Check it out.

Why Are Savvy Guys Like Tim Ferriss Still Getting Sick? Look To Their Food.

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

After more than a year traveling around Asia, including some poor areas in Indonesia, Thailand, Combodia, and Laos where hygiene is not up to first world standards, I’ve yet to get a case of travelers’ diarrhea or food poisoning, or so much as a head cold, for that matter. This streak of no sickness has been going since 2005.

Entrepreneurial and personal growth writer Tim Ferriss loves to travel the world, but his track record isn’t so great, and he recently reported serious diarrhea and near delirium brought on by a 101 degree fever after eating some bad food in India.

So what’s the magic difference? Our food.

Read what you need to do to escape travelers’ diarrhea and food poisoning, and what Ferriss is doing wrong here.
