David Wolfe(m): We've dulled ourselves down with this toxic food and food that's not natural. And when we bring back the natural, we also bring back the spiritual. We invite in more glow and more radiance and we start to feel a sense of something higher, of something greater. And the way I describe that, and the way I phrase that, is that we feel something noble, we feel a noble essence in raw foods.

HOST: Welcome beneficent viewers to Healthy Living on Supreme Master Television. This week we feature the first of a two-part interview with David Wolfe, a nutritionist, author and lecturer who is an expert on raw foods, natural health, beauty nutrition, herbalism, chocolate, and organic superfoods.

David is quite popular and some of his celebrity fans include co-founder and chief executive officer of Apple, Steve Jobs, and Hollywood actors Angela Basset, James Caan and Woody Harrelson.

For the past 16 years, this accomplished individual, who has a masters in nutrition and a law degree, has been informing the world of the benefits of a raw food diet and natural living through over 1,750 live lectures, CDs, DVDs and books. Some of his best-sellers include: “Eating for Beauty,” “Naked Chocolate,” “David Wolfe on Raw Foods,” “Superfoods: The Food and Medicine of the Future” and “The Sunfood Diet Success System.”

He is the co-founder of Online Health Magazine and is the founder and president of The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation, a non-profit charity whose mission is to plant 18 billion fruit trees across the globe.

Through the Foundation's efforts, thus far tens of thousands of fruit trees have been planted in North America, South Asia, and Africa. In our interview we asked David to discuss the advantages of a raw food diet. He began by defining the term “raw food.” David Wolf: What is raw food again? It's fruits and vegetables, and nuts and seeds, and seaweeds, all raw and organic, flowers, sprouts, grasses like wheatgrass, superfoods and super herbs.

One of the great gifts that it gives us, it allows us to really begin to detect what's going on in our body and it gives us a lot of insight in that way. Of course there's great nutrition in these foods, and there's wonderful amounts of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, and trace minerals, and polysaccharides, which are essential sugars that heal us.

HOST: David Wolfe is well known for his uplifting lectures on how raw foods can change one's life for the better. Why does he feel so passionate about raw food?

David Wolfe: Raw food has definitely made me more open to that infinite supply of love that emanates from all living things, and really from everything. It allows you to tune into subtler forces that are available to us. It allows you to tune into beauty, and the beauty ethic, and the power of beauty and in transforming our self and in transforming others. It tunes you into the great depth of the mystery of our world, and the mystery of the cosmos, which to me is so incredible. Because our creator is so deep, and so incredibly rich, that it's a mystery.

HOST: David is a firm believer in the sanctity of life and that our diet should always reflect a respect for all beings.

David Wolfe(m): To bring the vibration of this whole planet up we have got to stop this killing. And it's not just war. It's also what we're having for breakfast. It's not just there's people shooting each other. It's also we're shooting these animals and we're destroying these noble life forms. And we can very deeply benefit spiritually from removing ourselves from that karma, and opening ourselves up to other choices: vegan, vegetarian and then beyond that, raw food.

HOST: Raw foods feature rich flavors and raw chefs around the world are continually creating healthful new dishes that replicate the taste of their non-raw counterparts.

David Wolfe: We can have raw coconut cashew ice-cream. Every flavor you ever wanted. Raw chocolate chip mint ice-cream - no dairy - it's all made out of coconut, and cashews and pistachios and you eat that and you're like, “Oh my! This is incredible, what is going on?” And there's no side effects. So we get all those goodies - no side effects.
