I’m starting to netcast for the first time again since I conceived of and executive produced ‘Fiber‘ back in 1995, before ISDN or T1 were available! ‘Fiber’ was the World’s 1st online fashion show event ever, and it was broadcast over copper phone lines to the Mbone at UC Berkeley, CA, and then out to the world!

Thanks for joining me here and for helping me celebrate my newest book “Ani’s 15-Day Fat Blast“! Love you all xo, ani

The 1st stop along my book tour for Ani’s Raw Food Asia was at Santa Monica Place at Artisanal LA on April 16, 2011. Here are 4 short videos from my talk, Q+A, and book signing:

1) Ani’s Raw Food Asia – I love organic, local, seasonal foods

2) Ani’s Raw Food Asia – Probiotics, Happiness, Longevity

3) Ani’s Raw Food Asia – Easy ways to add more raw to any diet!

4) Ani’s Raw Food Asia – Recipe inspirations and sources for protein.

I had the honor of meeting Dr T. Colin Campbell at the Farm Sanctuary Hoe Down last weekend in Watkins Glenn, New York, where we were both invited to speak about vegan lifestyle, health, and diet. He’s pictured above with his wife Karen.

Dr Campbell is the author of the best selling book The China Study. Campbell says about his research in the Philippines “In this project, however, I uncovered a dark secret. Children who ate the highest protein diets were the ones most likely to get liver cancer…” A 20-year research project partnership between Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine found that “People who ate the most animal-based foods got the most chronic disease … People who ate the most plant-based foods were the healthiest and tended to avoid chronic disease. These results could not be ignored,” said Dr. Campbell.

In the Farm Sanctuary ‘People Barn’, I spoke to a full house about the benefits of the raw food diet, why whole and unprocessed foods are important, showed everyone how fast and easy it is to make a healthy Strawberry Kream Pie using just a handful of ingredients, from page 267 of Ani’s Raw Food Essentials, and then passed out pies to taste. Folks thought the pie was delicious. You can’t really go wrong with dates, cashews, almonds, vanilla, and strawberries.

Next, Dr. T. Colin Campbell took the stage, and reinforced many of the same concepts I had presented. He explained why taking supplements doesn’t work, and emphasized the importance of avoiding processed foods like all the junk vegan convenience foods on the market. He explained how protein turns-on cancer cells in the body.

In the USA, we promote high protein diets made up of about 80 percent protein. Most Americans eat around 50 percent protein. However, Dr. T. Colin Campbell advocates a diet of at most 20 percent plant-based protein for optimal health and longevity.

My mom and step dad came to the Farm for the weekend, and left inspired by all the great speakers and information, as did everyone! I can’t wait to visit the Farm Sanctuary again very soon.

A book trailer for Ani’s Raw Food Essentials for a naturally effervescent probiotic drink called Water Kefir from page 56.

This healthy drink is simple to make using water kefir grains that you can purchase online. I include resources in my book, and recommend going straight to the source for the living grains. Avoid the processed, dried, packaged grains because they are not as vital as the living grains. Plus, the dry grains only brew maybe three batches before you have to go and buy more dried grains again.

It takes just 48 hours to brew Water Kefir, and it’s full of friendly bacteria for building healthy intestinal flora. It helps me with digestion, assimilation of nutrients, and elimination. I enjoy Water Kefir with and after meals to help with digestion. I drink a cup on an empty stomach before bed to balance my intestinal flora.

In this video, I use a variation of the recipe in my book.

Water Kefir
Note: avoid metal. Metal damages probiotics and water kefir grains. Use only plastic spoons, measuring cups, and glass jars.

  • 4 cups filtered water
  • 1/3 cup organic cane juice crystals (sugar)
  • 1 Tablespoon turbinado (brown)
  • 2 pieces ginger
  • 3 slices dried pear (unsulphured)
  • 1/4 cup water kefir grains

Place water into a glass jar. Add sugars, ginger, pear, and stir. Add grains. Close lid, and store in cabinet for 48 hours to brew.

Pour brew through a plastic sieve to catch the grains. Remove ginger and pear. Store brew in glass bottles at room temperature to increase vitamin B levels. Or, store in fridge to chill.

Start your next batch immediately.
