Unfortunately, many of us have an unhealthy relationship with food–constantly dieting, counting calories, and worrying about that extra ten pounds. Rather than viewing food as the enemy, we should be appreciating what food can do, not just for the body, but also for the soul. Besides giving us strength, food nourishes the spirit and promotes longevity and happiness. Happy body, happy life—right?
Rose recently spoke to Kristina Carillo-Bucaram, vegan pioneer and author, about the benefits of eating raw foods and her latest book “The Fully Raw Diet”. In it, Kristina shows how the raw vegan lifestyle can transform your health. Aside from weight loss and a natural energy boost, the fully raw diet is a gateway to functioning physically, emotionally, and intellectually at levels we never knew we could attain.
Not only that, Kristina’s enthusiasm and passion were truly contagious. She shared her incredible story about how she overcame hyperglycemia by following a low-fat, raw-foods diet and at the end of the interview, she demonstrates how to make a Mint Berry Julip, one of the recipes in her book.
