My first stop in Portland, OR was to shoot a 6-minute segment with host Dave Anderson for AM Northwest on KATU TV. I show Dave how to make a Vegetable Nori Roll from Ani’s Raw Food Asia. Dave’s lost a ton of weight since I saw him along my last tour, and looks great. He said he cut out processed foods and cut back on alcohol.

Here I am above with AM Northwest  co-host Helen Raptis.

Next stop was Yummy Tummy Cafe for a lunchtime fuel-up on a gallon of Norwalk green juice; chocolate covered jungle peanuts; and a ruben sandwich made from flax seeds, mushrooms, and sauerkraut. Omg, seriously yummy tummy! And, a book signing meet-and-greet. From here, I was shuttled over to the KBOO radio station for an interview, and then finally ended up at Powell’s Books downtown for a talk and book signing.

I got to visit Powell’s rare book room, where I sat and signed a stack of my books, including Ani’s Raw Food Asia.

Peter Hanfileti is a very dear, long-time family friend from when I was in middle school…that’s so long ago! He’s an MD and acupuncturist in Vancouver, WA.

Kris Dyer may look familiar because he’s in my first book, Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen, which I wrote when I still lived in Portland. Kris was also one of our SmartMonkeys! I love tour because it allows me to visit friends I haven’t seen in a while. The weather was dry and sunny, just like last year in Portland! I love that city especially when the weather is gorgeous. Plus, the city’s blanketed with WiFi.

BBC Good Food interviewed me for a feature on Raw Foods in their Feb 2011 issue. Very cool, take a peek!

I was invited onto FOX in San Diego for a 6-minute segment on the benefits of the raw food diet and to talk about the Sambazon Warrior Up Campaign. I made host Raoul Martinez a few smoothies including a Banana Butter Breeze with Cacao. I planned to make him a Tomato Tarragon Bisque, but ran out of time.

I’m using my favorite blender, the Personal Blender. It costs about $69, and you can find more about the Personal Blender and find organic ingredients at www.GoSuperLife.com.

Weekend anchor Susan Lennon loves my Acai smoothies. She had a glow that shows how well she takes care of your health.

Preparing smoothies ahead of time was a good idea! Thanks for Kaia Lai and Kato for helping me shop, prep, and set up this beautiful shot.

Raoul initially seemed a bit scared of my smoothies, but once he tasted them, he was a believer! He finished off the cacao banana smoothie, and said he was really impressed.

I was a guest on San Diego Living with host Erin Mikael’s Green Scene segments on June 24, 2010, and then again on June 27th. We make Cashew Kream with Fresh Red White and Blue Berry Parfaits and Fruit Tartlets.

Listen to my interview with Carla on her radio show, Carla’s Cooking Radio. I talk about benefits of raw foods, my background, how I got into raw foods, and many tips for enjoying more healthy fresh whole foods. Raw desserts are my favorite, like my Chocolate Raspberry Ganache cake, and eating it is good for you and guilt-free! I explain how eating desserts and raw foods can help you loose weight while making you healthier from the inside out to give you the glow of radiant beauty.

Carla shared with me her Raw Almond Pistachio Ice Cream Recipe. I can’t wait to try making this!

One of my favorite audiences are all the lovely moms out in our world who are super busy shuttling their kids around town, running their household, shopping for food, planning each day, and are constantly looking for simple ways to provide healthy snacks and meals for their children and family. Mom’s and kids are my two biggest inspirations for creating my fast and easy to make raw food recipes.

CafeMom is a great site for info on pregnancy, kids stuff, party planning, love, sex, beauty, style, and healthy living.

ani phyo raw food winner best of raw

I’ve been voted Sexiest Raw Vegan Woman 2009 by the raw community again this year, but by default. Alicia Silverstone actually won the votes, I came in 2nd place. But she doesn’t consider herself raw anymore. What an honor! Plus, Steve from Sacred Chocolates sent me a congratulatory package of his delicious chocolate hearts…yummmy.

Last year, I was surprised that I was awarded 1st place for Best of Raw 2008:

Best Chef
Favorite Cookbook
Sexiest Raw Vegan Woman
and

2nd place for Favorite Educator

Listen to my interview from last year on Raw Inspirations Radio where I chat with lovely host Laura Fox about my history, inspirations, and what the future holds.
