What fuels your passion for raw healthy food?
I am always looking to improve my lifestyle, starting with what I eat, and what I don't eat. Raw is that next level way of eating, and requires much of discipline. I experienced a sense of "light" and fulfillment eating raw.
You're the mother of 5 beautiful children, tell us one thing you instill in them to change the future of their world.
Health is one of our greatest wealths. First and foremost, passing on the wisdom of "eating to live", yoga, mindfulness, staying connecting to nature, compassion for all life, and living by the african principal of "ubuntu", which means, "I am because you are, we are because they were." I teach them that everything in life is connected, and to listen to that inner higher voice, that fire, and to walk light.
You absolutely glow! Can you give us your favorite skin/health secrets?
Our skin is the largest organ on the body. One of my skin secrets is drinking living water in the form of fresh coconut water, or mineral water straight from the spring. I also fast frequently, and induce sweating through hot salt baths with vinegar and yoga. Of course, lots of herbal teas, and I eat no processed foods, and just stick to the plants, ancient grains, and superfoods. Skin health starts from the inside. For that GLO, Dr. Bronners soap, and home made sugar scrubs!
What is the biggest misconception about you?
My age! Often people think my oldest daughter and I are sisters.
How would you define open-mindedness?
To have an open mind, one has to have an open heart.
