Spreadin' the Word... ;)

OOooOooooo lalalalaaa…well, the epic CNN adventure continues ;) LOL – the RawReform main site is actually still down after being completely deluged with traffic the last few days (BIG thanks out to Kevin Gianni for helping us to get smthg back up online while the site is restored :). According to CNN, their piece on my weight loss was actually THE most viewed story on CNN yesterday, with over 1.3 million viewers :O
One of my old university friends, who now lives in the US, wrote to celebrate with me that this story “clearly surpasses even US politics during election year! GO GIRL!!!” LOL – FUN :) I LOVE seeing the simple concept of humans eating raw food going ‘mainstream’ like this...yeeeeeeeeeeee-HAH...
Amidst this media mayhem, the Monarch and I were also fortuitous enough this weekend to attend and speak at the uber-vibrant Festival of Life in London. YUMMINESS. Thanks to ALL of you who packed yourselves into our talks and came to say hello – hope you all enjoyed the day as much as we did... :) The venue was pulsating with raw energy, love and the pungent smell of durian ;) AMAZING to have SO many tuned-in, beautiful, conscious, loving individuals in the same space at once...add in outrageous amounts of raw chocolate to the equation and you’ve got an all-day, off-the-scale party of vibrancy and joy – how blessed we are ;)

on September the 26th I had:

1 quart water
2 cups ‘wild power’ tea
2 cups veggie juice: celery, cucumber, carrots & carrot greens, ginger, spinach
2 cups energy soup with flax crackers on the side, followed by a square of durian ice cream and a little raw chocolate
1 quart water
2 cups veggie juice: celery, cucumber, carrots & carrot greens, ginger, spinach

I’d love to share another amazing ‘healthy eating’ story that our friend Paul Nison recently posted to his blog. I think this is SO cool and encourage you to go and check it out in full HERE on Paul’s blog ‘The Raw Life’…
The story is about a friend of Paul’s called Bernando LaPallo, who is 107 YEARS OLD and looks...about 60-smthg, never gets ill and according to Paul:

“...eats only organic fruits and vegetables, fish and a homemade juice he makes fresh everyday for himself and his wife of 47 years, Georgette.
LaPallo’s dark face has hardly any wrinkles and his black hair has just specks of gray.
He still drives, has his original teeth and doesn’t wear a hearing aid.
LaPallo rises at 5 a.m. daily to walk several times around a nearby park, taking off his shoes to walk in the grass.”

WOW – check out that picture of him – a living testimony to eating simple foods, straight from Mama Earth... :) The energy of Bernando reminds me of the description of Anastasia’s Grandfathers in the Ringing Cedars series of inspiring :)

All love,
Angela. xxx
