On May 19. 2011 I got to visit Seattle along my tour for Ani’s Raw Food Asia. First stop was with host Margaret Larson at King 5 TV’s NewDay Northwest Show. Everyone in the studio audience received a copy of Ani’s Raw Food Asia.
Next was Evergreen Radio’s Kitchen Corner Show where I had a pleasantly challenging conversation with host Jo Ann Henderson. Jo was skeptical at first, but I hope I was able to convince her that raw foods are simply a way to enjoy more whole, fresh, organic ingredients.
At the same time, another pre-recorded radio program aired on Seattle radio where I spoke with host Keesha Ewers on her Healthy You! Radio Show.
By lunch I was hungry for some local raw food treats, and we stopped at Thrive Cafe for a meet-and-great and book signing, and they fed me delicious salad, green juice, and desserts.
Next stop was KOMO Newsradio where we aired during afternoon drive-time traffic. The hosts Herb Weisbaum & Jane Shannon are already into raw foods, and were already making their own kale chips. I love how main stream kale chips have become!
Our final destination for the day was the Woodmark Hotel and Yacht Club in Kirkland, on the lake. This was the view from my room, you can see snow topped mountains in the distance.
The Woodmark Hotel hosted what they call “Happy Hour and a Half”. They made 2 recipes from Ani’s Raw Food Asia, I gave a talk, answered questions, and then signed books. It was another clear, sunny, dry, warm day in the Seattle. After this final event, I went on a long walk along the lake front. The air was fresh, clean, and crisp. And I felt grateful for all the wonderful people who welcomed me to their beautiful city.
This was the awesome lady who made this day happen for me, Joy. In addition to shuttling me around town, she also hooked me up with a food assistant so that I didn’t have to carry all my food, plates, props with me on the airplane! Plus, she kept the car stocked with cut, prepared veggies of all sorts for me to snack on all day long.
This was Joy’s assistant Lee, who had shopped for props and ingredients, and helped me prep for my TV appearance. Thank you Joy and Lee!! You’ve officially spoiled me.

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!

I love WLIR. The founder Dhrumil Purohit is an amazing being filled with incredibly positive energy and light. Dhrumil has created this wonderful online resource for our community. So, if you haven’t been to it yet, you must visit We Like It Raw.
While you’re there, you can listen to a chat Dhrumil and I had about how I grew up on raw foods, my raw food career path, practical raw food tips, how raw foods decrease our ecological footprint, and building community.
