"Some people, when they think of Southern California, think of nuts.
Not the kind that grow in trees, but the kind that swing in trees—the
bearded, mop-haired, half-naked vegetarians who wander around
in the hills and occasionally roll into town like a pack of wild men.
It was quite a few years ago when I lived like this."

Could this heart-centered woman be the new hope in congretional politics? Listen what Marianne Williamson has to say about her run for the U.S. House of Representatives.
Tuning our hearts to a season of gratitude, let's come together as a supporting community that can help to facilitate change.
Marianne Williamson's candidacy suggests a potential new direction in American politics. First, Williamson has long differentiated herself from her fellow travelers in advocating formal political activism around issues such as gay marriage, the establishment of a federal Department of Peace, and the need to raise voter turnout among women. Second, her references to Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. and sweeping celebration of "heart-filled politics" are so totally at odds with the wonkish tenor of debates over healthcare and foreign policy that define most political discourse, that it is equally likely this dissonance will define her as refreshing and visionary rather than vague and hippy-dippy.
- Natalia Mehlman Petrzela, Huffington Post
"Could Williamson be the harbinger of a wave of Independent candidacies in 2014? Are people so sick of the two existing parties that they’re ready to go shopping for something new? 'We’re seeing this all over our polling,' says Peter Hart, who does surveys for NBC and the Wall Street Journal. 'People are sick of the status quo: 60% believe that the entire Congress should be replaced.They’re looking for alternatives.'”
- Joe Klein, Time Magazine
MARIANNE WILLIAMSON is an internationally acclaimed author, lecturer and thought leader. Six of her ten published books have been New York Times Best Sellers. Four of these have been #1 New York Times Best Sellers. In 1997, she published Healing the Soul of America, calling for a holistic perspective on America’s political system. The book is an insightful examination of our history and politics, offering personal and political solutions for the renewal of our democracy.

RAWvolution JUN...Vegan Buzz?
A new product we are excited about is RAWvolution Jun, made locally by Bliss Brew, carried in two flavors: Chaga Reishi (spring water, jasmine tea, reishi, wild chaga, goji berries, schizandra, astralagus, codonopsis, rehmannia, epimedium, tribulus, licorice, bupleurum, dong quai, honey) and Flower & Herb (spring water, jasmine tea, horsetail, nettle leaf, hibiscus, rosehips, lemongrass, orange peel, spearmint, rose petal, stevia, honey). Offered in three sizes 6oz, 12oz and 1 litre.
So what exactly is this potent fermented drink gaining large popularity on almost exclusive levels since the alchemy of Jun brewing is an art known only to a close-knit circle of Jun-makers and Tibetian monks.
Jun culture originated in ancient Asia, where it was valued for its ability to open chi (energy) in the body and to increase its circulation. The cultures of Jun eat raw honey and green tea rather than unrefined sugar and black tea like kombucha. Jun is also more alcoholic, hovering somewhere around the 2% range, versus kombucha’s .5% . Jun is like kombucha and mead synthesized into one. It makes you feel elevated, especially the more clean is your diet.
NEW FLAVOR AT RAWVOLUTION JUICERY
Matt formulated yet another new flavor addition to the RAWvolution Juicery. Fennel Green with fennel, celery, cucumber, romaine and lemon is a yummy green juice, not just for future mamas, packed with lots of folate.
There is a myrid of people we look up to for blazing the wholesome and raw food trail. We comprised what's probably the most comprehensive encyclopedia of these Rawvolutionaries that date back as far as the B.C. years, in our latest book "The Rawvolution Continues" and we intend to introduce them to you via our Newsletter.
Naturmenschen were a group of late 19th and early 20th century Germany and Swiss “Natural Men”, who wore tunics and sandals (or bare feet), long hair and beards and preferred to eat only uncooked foods. Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach, Johannes Guttzeit, Gustav Nagel, Ralph Salomonson, Josua Klein, Gusto Graser, influential artist Fidus, and author Herman Hesse exemplified the Naturmenschen ideal.
FEATURED RECIPE from our latest uncook book
"The RAWvolution Continues": Rosemary Crackers
Utilizing almond pulp and savory spices, these crackers are a terrific gluten-free accompaniment to spreads and dips. Rosemary was once an ingredient, but the original recipe dissapered years ago (it happens!) The name stuck.
1 cup fresh lemon juice
1 cup of pure water
5 cloves of garlic peeled
3 tablespoons dried sage
2 tablespoons of dried thyme
2 tablespoons of dried oregano
4 teaspoons sea salt
1 2/3 cups almond pulp (left from making your almond milk)
1 2/3 cups flaxseeds, grounded in high speed blender
1 1/3 cups of olive oil
In high speed blender, blend the lemon juice, pure water, garlic, sage, thyme, oregano, and salt and thoroughly blend. Transfer to a mixing bowl and add the almond pulp, flaxseeds and olive oil.
Knead the mixture by hand until a consistent, doughy texture is achieved. Spread the mixture onto 2 dehydrator trays lined with Teflex sheets (add a little extra water if the mixture is too thick to spread evenly). Score the crackers before dehydrating, dividing each tray into 24 crackers by scoring 3 cuts vertically and 5 cuts horizontally. Dehydrate for 12-14 hours at 105 degrees F. Flip the crackers onto another dehydrator tray, peel off the Teflex sheets, and dehydrate for an additional 12-14 hours. Store in a cool, dry place until ready to serve.
