How has this a ected your per­spec­tive and your in­ter­est in health? A: I’ve seen both sides of the coin. That is why I have spent the past cou­ple of decades re­search­ing, writ­ing, and lec­tur­ing on the se­crets and strate­gies to achieve real longevity. That’s why it’s my mission to share what I do with the pub­lic.

Q: What is Liv­ing Food Nu­tri­tion? A: It’s a plant-based diet of raw foods, with an em­pha­sis on low sugar in­take and high amounts of en­zymes. Re­fined sugar is one of the most dam­ag­ing sub­stances we can put into our bod­ies. It’s a drug that causes ar­ti­fi­cial highs, mood swings, de­pres­sion, and en­ergy crashes. En­zymes are the nec­es­sary el­e­ment for mov­ing stag­na­tion out of the body— wwhether that is in ththe form of ex­cess weight, tox­ins, fa rerepet­i­tive neg­a­tive thoughts

Q: What are the most im­por­tant foods we should in­clude in our di­ets for en­ergy and health­ful ag­ing? A: Goji berries, ca­cao, ma­rine phy­to­plank­ton, bee pollen, and royal jelly.

Q: One of your books is ti­tled

NakedCho­co­late. How does chocolate a ect health? A: Re­search has shown that chocolate a ects longevity. Chocolate ac­tu­ally pro­tects your heart from cal­ci­um­form­ing or­gan­isms that cause calci cation. Dark chocolate— es­pe­cially ca­cao beans or ca­cao nibs, which are raw pieces of the chocolate nut—con­tains car­dio­vas­cu­lar-sup­port­ing an­tiox­i­dants. Chocolate is also fun—and peo­ple who have fun live longer! Q: What en­ergy-boost­ing vi­ta­mins and min­er­als are most Amer­i­cans lack­ing? A: Mag­ne­sium, iron, chromium, and vi­ta­mins B3, B6, B9, B12, and D.

Q: Tell us a bit about your Best Day Ever work­shops. A: In a way that is sim­ple, easy, and fun, we bring the au­di­ence from wher­ever they are in their nu­tri­tional knowl­edge up to speed on su­per­foods, su­per­herbs, and chocolate. Q: If you were stranded on a desert is­land, what one food and one sup­ple­ment would you want to have with you? A: Ca­cao and deer antler vel­vet ex­tract.

Q: What is some ad­vice for healthy liv­ing that ev­ery­one should know? A: We have ev­ery­thing we’ve al­ways wished for. We have ev­ery­thing we’ve ever needed. Now the only thing left to do is say yes to all of the great things we have avail­able.
