A PASSION FOR THE FUTURE!

NEW BEGINNINGS

Our graduate student Joelle Vadas has opened her own healing center 'RawFully-Healthy' in Melbourne, Australia.

She will be coaching and leading workshops teaching the benefits of Raw Living Foods and diet change to her part of the world. If you are in Melbourne, you are going to want to check her out. We are so proud of her.

 

 

GRACE

Our 'new beginning' really started eight years ago. I may never have found my way to Raw Living Foods, except I was desperate to solve my own declining health. I had a tumor growing in my uterus with no signs of slowing down.
Detoxing with Raw Foods to restore order in the body and heal degenerative disease was not my original idea. A plan and protocol was first taught by the late, great healer, Dr. Ann Wigmore. She had healed her own cancer using Raw and fermented foods. Before her miracle, she had been a white pastry junkie. This was a woman I could relate to and trust. It was her belief that no matter how sick you are, you can restore your own health if you give your body the right tools to work with. That gave me the courage to try. I owe my healing success exclusively to her work.
My quest to get well led me to new lands I didn't know existed. It granted me grace and gifts I hadn't expected. I joined the plant-based movement to get myself back on track. It has transformed my health, as well as giving my life clearer purpose and passion.
Joseph, my husband, a nurse for twenty years, watched the new foods change and transform my health. He too would bravely confront the foods that were causing him harm. My household would wake up 100%.
Together we began by building a Raw Food Meet-up group in our community. The first year there were about ten to fifteen people. Today we have 360 members. People would come to us and say they wanted to go deeper with the diet, so we created Diet For Living Center and began classes teaching the 'Raw Food Basics'. We wanted to spread the word even further, make the circle bigger.
So we added 'Diet For Living School of Natural Nutrition', with global reach. The school is Board Certified by the American Association Of Drugless Practitioners (AADP), allowing us to be recognized as a Higher Educational Institute. As a graduate of our program, if you choose, you are eligible to receive international Board Certification from AADP. Their Holistic Health Practitioner Certification helps you instill trust while expanding your professional development. Your success is important to us.

THE BIG 'WOW' NEWS

According to the National Centers For Disease Control and Prevention "more than 133 million adults in America are living with at least one chronic disease, such as obesity, diabetes or cardiovascular disease. The cost of managing their care is estimated at an astounding $270 billion a year." These are not just numbers. These are our friends, family, loves ones, our communities and maybe even us. The National Center goes on to say "growing evidence demonstrates these diseases can largely be reduced or prevented through education and behavioral changes." It's easy to conclude that the greatest impact on the future of health today and tomorrow will be teaching people to eat lifesaving innovative foods.
These are exciting times to be a Holistic Health Educator. New York City doctors are writing prescriptions for fruits and vegetables for obese and over weight patients. Called the 'Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program', patients get prescribed 'Health Bucks', redeemable for produce at more than 140 New York Farmer's Markets. 'WOW'! The program has now expanded to seven other states on the Eastern Seaboard and continues to grow. How exciting is that!!! No gimmicks, pills or potions, no mysterious supplements. Just the food's nature provides.
If you're like us, you want to be part of the solution, part of this growing movement that is seeing the world in new ways.

WE HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US

RAW FOOD AS A HEALING TOOL!

RAW FOOD AS A HEALING TOOL!

Dia de Los Muertos is the traditional Mexican holiday in early November with deep indigenous roots. It's big here in Albuquerque, New Mexico, our home town. Activities go on all weekend. It ends on Sunday with a two hour parade where thousands of citizens from the community gather together in Day of the Dead make-up and clothing.

It's believed on this day your deceased relatives return so that you won't feel so alone, reminding us that the veil between this world and the next is thinner then we think.

 

 

This day I thought of my mother. She died of cancer when she was fifty-seven. She fought like a lioness, she so loved life. But she lost. I wished she had lived longer. I wished we could have worked things out. With age, she had grown kinder. With age, I may have been able to polish some of my rough edges and become more forgiving.

 

I like to think I would have brought my juicer to her house and would have made her fresh pressed juices, organic salads and yummy nutritious blender drinks. I would make her one of my Raw chocolate pies. She would love being fussed over. Perhaps we would have worked on a Raw Detox Plan that would have extended her life. I have now witnessed many miracles, including my own. So many people have great results when they use Raw Food as a healing tool.

I want to share some of the wonderful photos of the parade. It's the best in the Southwest.....

The American Institute of Cancer Research reports that people whose diets are rich in onions have a lower risk of contracting ovarian, prostrate, breast, kidney and colon cancer. Onions have also been found to slow the growth of cancer cells. Like many raw vegetables, onions contain powerful antioxidants that block highly reactive free radicals from damaging cell DNA. Remember, antioxidants can't tolerate heat, so onions have to be eaten raw.

You may be thinking, 'I was so excited about all this fabulous cancer protection, but raw onions may be harsh on my social life'. I have to agree. I can't afford to offend or lose any friends, so what can we do? Be brave.

The secret is shallots. This petite onion is a member of the lily family, with a delicate, mild taste. This mellow little onion is chockfull of the same anti-cancer chemicals as its big yellow, red or white buddy.

Shallots are the new gourmet onion and a key ingredient in the modern green kitchen. Sliced paper thin and added to baby greens, you'll have the perfect salad. You'll be able to enjoy them daily, all week long. Topping your salad with a raw, rich and creamy salad dressing is key to rounding out the experience. Here is an easy dressing, packed with the healthy probiotics that we love at Diet For Living Center.

 

Our Raw Miso Dream Dressing                          

¼ cup raw tahini

¼ cup raw agave nectar

2 tablespoons filtered water

2 tablespoons unpasteurized mellow white miso

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Add all the ingredients to the blender. Start blending on low, then finish the process on high.

Store any extra in a glass jar in the fridge.

Enjoy!

The best to your health!

This week the winds blew in gusts of 100 miles an hour in LA, closing down LAX airport, before heading to us in New Mexico. My little cold frames were snug and safe, my little greenhouse alive with beet greens, rainbow chard and onion greens. When the winds stopped, then came the snow. Yet all was well in my winter garden. For me this was so empowering, more than enough encouragement to keep me going until Spring!

"WOMEN", the popular magazine that addresses Women's Issues, particularly concerning cancer and cancer prevention, just included in its summer 2011 publication an article on "The Wonders of Raw Chocolate."

Great News! The world is changing!

Chocolate in it's raw, pure, unadulterated form is called 'raw cacao'. It is causing quite a lot of excitement because of its "nutritious benefits" and "healing properties". The article reports that "raw cacao is considered a superfood because it is loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants".

HEALING POWERS OF FERMENTED FOODS

The glorious healing powers of fermented foods have been celebrated by every culture on Earth since the beginning of time. Fermented foods (also known as 'kraut', or by the fancy new name, 'cultured vegetables') are an important component of a balanced Raw Food Diet. The fermenting process makes them extremely rich in life-force enzymes, pre-digested proteins and lactobacillus. Cultured vegetables have the ability to make their own B Vitamins in their transformation process as well as creating friendly bacteria for healthy intestines.
