Spiritual Nutrition: Six Foundations for Spiritual Life and the Awakening of Kundalini gives you both the technology and the inspiration to do this.

The inspiring true story of a family who, through necessity, found themselves on the raw/live food path. The final straw for Victoria was when she was told that her son, diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes, would have to be injected with insulin for the rest of his life and that there was no cure. Through her despair, Victoria reasoned that there must be another way; another answer for her son and family. One day she saw a very radiant and happy looking woman in the bank and again asked the question. The answer: “Eat raw food!
Superfoods are vibrant, nutritionally dense foods that have recently become widely available and which offer tremendous dietary and healing potential. David Wolfe profiles delicious and incredibly nutritious plant products such as goji berries, hempseed, cacao beans (raw chocolate), maca, spirulina, bee products, and a host of others. As powerful sources of clean protein, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants, good fats and oils, essential fatty and amino acids, and other nutrients, they represent a uniquely promising piece of the nutritional puzzle. Each superfood is described in detail, accompanied by easy and delicious recipes.

Substituting these mouthwatering desserts for traditional baked ones will give your body much-needed nutrients while sacrificing none of the flavor.

RAW VEGAN RADIO
I just discovered this radio station and heaps of interesting interviews with Raw food personalities
REVVELLATIONS ~ Celebrating Your Potential.
Revvell Revati will introduce you to many ideas and ways of being often not generally known and/or accepted by the mainstream. It is about living in freedom; choosing to be happy and joy-filled and possibly sharing new ideas not often encountered in our day-to-day lives. I will be interviewing authors and speakers on various topics and raw foodists on what that means to them. One thing I do with each person is find out where they came from; how did they get to where they are? Were they supported on their journey? What was their childhood like? These and other things will be asked to assist listeners in finding their potential. As I have done these interviews over the last months I have gotten emails from people telling me that because of one thing someone said, they have changed their lives and even created new livelihoods. It is amazing what will touch and inspire someone.

MOVIES / DOCUMENTARIES
We have discovered so many amazing documentaries and movies on the Raw Food and Sustainable lifestyle!
Food Inc – Movie
Filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil on our nation’s food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that has been hidden from the American consumer with the consent of our government’s regulatory agencies, USDA and FDA. Our nation’s food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and our own environment. We have bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, herbicide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won’t go bad, but we also have new strains of E. coli—the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually. We are riddled with widespread obesity, particularly among children, and an epidemic level of diabetes among adults.
FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet.
The End of the Line, the first major feature documentary film revealing the impact of overfishing on our oceans, In the film we see firsthand the effects of our global love affair with fish as food. It examines the imminent extinction of blue fin tuna, brought on by increasing western demand for sushi; the impact on marine life resulting in huge overpopulation of jellyfish; and the profound implications of a future world with no fish that would bring certain mass starvation.
Colin Beavan decides to completely eliminate his personal impact on the environment for the next year. It means eating vegetarian, buying only local food, and turning off the refrigerator. It also means no elevators, no television, no cars, buses, or airplanes, no toxic cleaning products, no electricity, no material consumption, and no garbage.
The film follows actor Woody Harrelson as he takes a small group of friends on a bio-fuelled bus-ride down the Pacific Coast Highway. Their goal? To show the people they encounter that there are viable alternatives to our habitual, environmentally-destructive behaviors.

Blue Gold:World Water Wars examines environmental and political implications of the planet’s dwindling water supply, and posits that wars in the future will be fought over water. The film also highlights some success stories of water activists around the world, and makes a strong case for community action.
