Our 56th show features the first part of an interview that Derek did with raw food guru David Wolfe during his recent visit to the Rhode Island School of Design. David's talk focused on raw cacao and he tells us why this nut is a key to vibrant health and possibly a Panacea for a host of other ills. David also enlightens us about an array of other issues pertaining to veganism and the meaning of life. (Part two of the interview will be featured in our next podcast).
On our 55th show we look into two diets that are close relatives of veganism, both of which can be integrated into a vegan diet to improve the health benefits. Our first guest, David Snieckus, has been practicing a Macrobiotic diet for over 30 years and has been vegan for most of that time. While he doesn't tell us exactly what he eats we do learn a lot from him about the yin and yang underlying the lifestyle that is more than a diet.
