Chef B, in California, sits down with her mentor, Dr. Doug Graham, who is in England, preparing to jet off to Costa Rica for one of his annual retreats. Chef B is thrilled to let you listen in on her conversation with someone who was a huge inspiration for her current raw eating foray (and the 2 recipe books that she just published on Amazon-- "Back to Nature" is mostly raw, and "Entertaining Au Naturel" is all raw-- search for "Cookbooks by Chef B" on Amazon to find them). Although Chef B has been eating "high raw" (aka mostly raw), whole food vegan since 1991 (and all organic since that was invented in the 90s), eating all raw has been another step up in feeling great, and she is very enthusiastic about it. Hear about the benefits to her digestion, waistline, energy and more. Dr. Graham illuminates the science in his cool, humble manner that is so confident, laid back, and mesmerizing to thousands of followers around the globe. His book, "The 80-10-10 Diet" had a huge impact on our host as well as most raw foodists, and even just folks who want to eat healthier. It's been a best-seller pretty consistently since its inception. It's no wonder that Dr. Graham is a sought-after speaker at all the fruit festivals around the world, as well as many retreats each year in various forms of natural paradise. While he has always been known for being extraordinarily fit (he has been a trainer to world tennis pros and NFL athletes, and more), he just started powerlifting at the age of 60. Now, as he embarks on 70, he is competing in Masters Powerlifting. This guy is incredibly inspirational!
