New Raw Arrivals...

Today we have an exciting Valentines announcement...I am delighted to say that the very first translation of a RawReform book went on sale today... The name of the book is ‘Élõ ételfinomságok receptkönyve ‘ and yep, you guessed it, it’s the HUNGARIAN version of my Recipe book... ;) WOW – who saw that coming...?
The translation was produced by the talented Ms. Valeria Urban and what a lovely job she’s done on the cover :) (I’m taking her word on the translation aspect however... ;)
Valeria Urban (pictured here below) is a woman on a mission: she is single-handedly bringing the raw food revolution to Hungary :) Yeeeeeeeee-HAH ;) She set up the first (and so far only) Hungarian raw food website - - studied live-food cuisine at the luscious Tree of Life in Arizona and has already translated and published Victoria Boutenko’s books ‘Raw Family’ and ‘Green for Life’ into Hungarian. GOOD WORK :)
You can see the PRINTED version of this book at Valeria’s site HERE and in the next few days, we will also add it as an e-book to the RawReform store – stay tuned ;)
If you’re reading this and thinking ‘hang on, I could translate raw books into Italian/French/Swahili’ and so on, do feel free to drop us a line to with a few details and we can get you set up with info on how YOU could be the next star translator, helping spread the raw message ever-further ;)

We are so bleeeeeeeeeeeeeeessed :) After the ‘torments’ of inner-city life in Auckland, we have now headed out west for a few nights of recuperation and detox, before our talk in Auckland this Sunday. We are so grateful to now be at a STUNNING beach house, just a few paces from the ocean. Fresh air, the sound of crashing waves, rainforest-clad hills and the sound of bird call rather than truck brakes...aaaaaahhhhhh, breathing deep and giving much gratitude detoxing at a rate of knots ;) I sense some more beautiful west coast sunset moments in the coming days :) I’ll try to take some pictures this time... Ooo, and if anyone has places to recommend staying in the Golden Bay/Nelson area of the South Island here, please do let us know –

on February the 15th I had:

1.5 quarts water
30oz watermelon/orange juice
20oz spinach/cucumber/zucchini/carrot juice
bowl of tahini/hemp seed mushed with diced tomatoes and karengo seaweed, served with lettuce leaves and cucumber sticks
1.5 quarts water
12oz spinach/cucumber/zucchini/carrot juice
bowl of fruit salad with chia gel: banana/papaya/golden kiwi/goji berries/blueberries/cherries
1 quart water

Mr. Monarch already mentioned this a bit in his blog yesterday – however, I know not everyone reads both of our posts, so I thought I’d repeat this here too, especially as I’d like to see these beautiful people get as much coverage as possible... Our gloriously raw friends Kathy and Danny Living (yes, that's their real surname) recently opened a new raw restaurant in the Chicago suburbs called ‘Borrowed Earth’ and were featured in a sweet little clip on local TV a few nights ago – you can see the video HERE. Danny and Kathy are SUCH sweeeeeeeet people and it is so heartwarming to me to see their dreams animated into reality in this way...we met them for the first time last year in Chicago, when the Monarch and myself were giving talks – now, I may get some of the details of their stories a bit fuzzy, but it goes smthg like this: they had jobs they didn’t really like, then suddenly they didn’t have fact they had no source of income and weren’t sure what direction life was flowing for them...they decided to watch the film ‘The Secret’ every day for a month. They lived by the principles of manifesting our deepest desires through positive thinking...within a few months, they were opening their own raw food restaurant and now they’re living the dream ;) Yeeeeeeeeee-HAH :)))))) LOVE IT and I love them too – they are like deliciousness embodied...friendly, funny, warm-hearted, loving, open, generous...and from this little video clip, Borrowed Earth is looking FABULOUS – it looks SO sleek and pro, yet friendly too – I LOVE the ‘rawluctant gallery wall’ for example – classic ;) Anyway, you can check out the little news item on their place HERE and you can visit Borrowed Earth itself here:

We definitely plan to give talks and visit up there one day – hopefully later this year, as and when we get back to the States ;)

One love,
Angela. xxx
