Mimi discusses how she became a raw vegan, her beauty secrets, and her plans for the future.
Q: What's the best way to start on a vegan/raw food diet? I am not sure what to eat to make sure I would get a nutritious diet-you may not be able to go into that much detail but how can I get sample meal plans for breakfast, lunch and dinner incorporating this type of diet-perhaps there is somewhere on the web I find something like this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
If I do say myself, the best way to start a raw food diet is to be coached by me. I run a 6 month health coaching program that is 60-90 percent raw and 100 percent vegan/gluten free/ allergy free. You can find out more about my program at www.theveganeffect.com. I am running a special of half off my program if you sign up before march 1st.
Here are some other tips to get started.
2: Read books like "beauty detox solution" by snyder, "80/10/10" by Dr. Graham., or "The Paradigm diet" by Adam Dave
3: Start simple with breakfast. Always start your day with a green smoothie. read "Green smoothie revolution" by forget authors name at the moment. heh.
A sample meal plan would be.
Breakfast: Green smoothie
Bridge: raw bar, handful of nuts or seeds, or fruit
Lunch: Raw wraps made from collard greens. use a base of tahini, hummus, or nut butter. Fill with sprouts and colorful veggies
Bridge: raw bar, handful nuts or seeds, or fruit
Dinner: Raw pasta with a large salad
Hope that answers your question,

Q: My question is this, Will you make women and men deodorant in the future? A lot of products in the store are not healthy at all, and it leaves your under arm with a stain on the clothes.
HAVE YOU READ OUR ARTICLE ON â€BEWARE OF DEODORANTS AND ANTIPERSPIRANTSâ€ LOTS OF GOOD INFORMATION IN THERE! WE MAY PRODUCE THESE ITEMS IN THE FUTURE, RIGHT NOW WE ARE CONCENTRATING ON ALTERNATIVES TO DRUGS WHICH ARE KILLING PEOPLE, MORE SO THAN THE PERSONAL HYGIENE PRODUCTS. BUT I'LL KEEP THIS IN MIND.
Q: I am just becoming a vegan going on 20 years in June, and it takes a lot of discipline. I was wondering if you knew any good recipes for some good vegan style dishes. I really want to establish a vegan restaurant. I have purchased your Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual, and I know its healthier to eat vegan. But, I also understand its not the healthiest due to soy products. Is their still away to satisfy my appetite and well being at the same time?

Q: I don't know if you remember or know, but there was a Vegan Couple that had a newborn baby, and the baby had died from what seemed to be a lack a of nutrients because the couple fed the baby a vegan diet. If you remember this, what do you think went wrong.
The couple was from Atlanta! What went wrong is that while they were well-intentioned, they were ignorant, ignorant to true nutrition. They fed the baby soy milk, and soy milk does not contain nutrition. They didn't supplement the soy milk with nutrition which they could have done with herbs such as alfalfa, Irish Moss, Iceland Moss, etc.
Q: What is the best way for a Vegan to get vit? B 12? What do you think about essential oils? Have you heard of the Young Living brand? I work with a woman who says she has eczema, but it is deep purple and very painful. I have never seen anything like it, but her doctors want to try chemo to get rid of it. Doctors are so brilliant. Why do so many people go to get punished by them?
FOR B12, EAT PLENTY OF GREEN VEGETABLES OR TAKE VITAMIN B 12. I HAVE HEARD OF YOUNG LIVING BRAND. ESSENTIAL OLIS ARE ESSENTIAL OILS. YOUNG LIVING IS JUST A BRAND. THE OILS ARE THE SAME. YL OFFERS GOOD OILS. I ENDORSE THEM! GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY! CHEMOTHERAPY FOR ECZEMA? PLEASE TELL ME YOUR FRIEND HAS BRAINS AND KNOWS NOT TO FALL FOR THIS. PLEASE HAVE HER READ MY ARTICLE ON â€ECZEMAâ€. I STAY AWAY FROM DOCTORS AT ALL COSTS!
Q: I just want to let you know how much I enjoy learning from your wisdom of herbs, as well as insight on other topics. I don't believe there is another site as knowledgeable about health as it pertains to Moors. I look forward to placing an order, and further contacting you in the near future.

Q: What do you think about tarot card readings? Do you think I am to make my life or is it already planned? Can astrology help me know of future, or finances?
Tarot cards are a from of divination, and can be very helpful in helping one to discover their life's purpose and path. Your life is partially planned (right hand tells this), and then planned by yourself on the mundane level (left hand). Astrology can help you to learn about future finances only based upon patterns that have been established. If these patterns change, then your finances will change, but you are the cause of this change.
Q: I'am 62 years old and sometimes I forget things, and I have to do something this. I have a job managing a department of 50 employees in a Hotel in Miami Beach. Do you have something I could take in order to keep my brain and memory sharp and strong for my future starting now? Please, I appreciate your answer and thanks for all. My heath has improved so much since I started taking your supplements eyes formula, cardio vascular formula etc. Thank you, thank you, so much for everything you doing with humanity
Q: Has your ministry done any extensive research on glutathione? I've been reading a lot about it, and the one place that sells it in liquid form is quite expensive , $75 for 4 oz. So I was wondering if it might be available on your website in the near future.
We only deal with herbs here!
Q: How often should one eat cook food? I'm a vegan, I do not consume any meat, seafood, milk what so ever. I eat water cresses like everyday so as cook food. Like white rice with black bean sauce, spinach, and pasta at time's I'll eat some Chinese fried rice, veggie roll, steamed vegetables, any advice?
You can eat cooked food as much as you like. However, try to incorporate as many nutrient-dense raw foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, raw nuts and seeds, into your diet to make sure you are receiving an adequate amount of nutrients.
Q: Peace, I would like to know if your institution runs any type of basic, short courses in herbology. If so, please forward relevant details as I may be re-locating to Athens-Georgia in the near future from KwaZulu South Africa, and have been interested in learning more seriously about herbs for a number of years.
Unfortunately, at this point in time Dherbs offers no courses in herbology.
Q: Hey Gary, I've heard a lot of hype about the paleo diet. I'm a vegan. Is the paleo diet a diet you would recommend? Can it work with vegan lifestyle? Thanks!
Sorry for the late response, This one got kind of lost in my emails. Thanks for your question.
The Paleo diet.... something nice.... something nice.... heh.
The Paleo diet emphasizes drinking water and eating local/organic food. They shun dairy, processed food, and grains. I agree.
I disagree with just about everything else. For paleo theory to be correct Vegans either have to not exist or be doing very poorly. Wrong on both accounts. They say vegans just can't get enough protein or that we are missing x,y,z in our diets. Never mind that every major paleo website sells the supplements they say only vegans are deficient in. "Vegans don't get enough protein so eat meat and then buy our protein powder supplements. Vegans don't get enough omega 3's so just eat fish and while you are at it buy our krill oil supplements." And so on. The paleo diet is just the low carb diet re-branded. Here are the results of long term low carb eating. http://www.pcrm.org/health/reports/analysis-of-health-problems-associated-with-high.
Vegans are doing extremely well and in most long term studies Vegans end up on top in both health and longevity.
Also see this video http://nutritionfacts.org/video/paleolithic-lessons/
They claim carbohydrates make you fat and that the more you eat the more you weigh. Why then do the 80-10-10 crowd all appear not only all thin but extremely healthy? Carbohydrates are your bodies main source of fuel. Preferred source. Every cell in your body runs on glucose. The human body is amazing. The is a secondary source of energy in case of starvation, or glucose deprived. The body starts to burn fat as fuel known as keytosis. This was only meant as a way to keep the body running during famine. However the paleo people think this is a preferred state to be in. It's not. Look up keto-acidosis. Could be deadly.The bottom line is that people will always be looking forward to the latest fad that tells them "good things about their bad habits".
My Diet program that I run follows a high carb/low fat/high alkaline/high raw protocol. All my client reach remarkable health results.
I could go on forever, but I think you get the point. Let me know if you have anything else to add to this discussion.

Q: I was curious Dherb.com are you going to make available the crystals and stones you always speaks about on Dherbs.com? I have purchased several items thus far and plan to purchase more kits and regimens in the near future. I have searched for some of these crystals and stones in my local community but have difficulty in selecting the stones or finding them all together.
We list great sources and references for crystals and chakras in the Dherbs Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual (available on-line). Look under SUGGESTED BOOKS.All of our Elixirs are made from crystals and can be purchased on our website. These can be used for healing purposes as well.
Q: I'm a raw vegan, and still suffering from acne. I stay away from all sweeteners, except fresh whole fruits. I started to have lots of greens juices these days, and my skin has improved a little bit. What about spices such a cayenne pepper, is it bad for your skin? What about goji berries? I know they are diet fruits, thats why I stay away from them for a while. I even fast for a while. I just don't know how my skin can getter better.
Greetings! Have you detoxed (Full Body Detox)? Acne is a blood disorder. Please read our article "Skin Disorder = Blood Disorder" for more information. Our Healing Facial Kit will be out later this month. Recommended reading: The Mental Science Manual. Stay positive! Don't focus so much on the problem. Use visualization techniques, and see yourself as you desire to see yourself, with flawless skin.
Skin Disorder = Blood Disorder
Q: I would really appreciate a little more info. On the veins treatment offered on your site. I would like to know how effective the capsules are, whether or not they help to get rid of existing veins, prevent future ones, or both. I would also like to know how soon one would begin to see results and whether or not there are any supplementary things that should be used alongside the veins formula. Additionally, there is a natural vein formula by the name of Veranin. How does your product compare or differ from this product, if at all?
Dherbs Veins Formula is a great product to help nourish and strengthen the veins and the venous system.
The difference in our products is the quality of herbs that we use. There are no synthetic ingredients of any kind are are 100% natural.
Q: When I use the OZ OIL my outer skin is very soft and subtle. However deep down in the skin I feel very itchy. I have been assuming this is the effect of the oil doing its job. After a few weeks I got the feeling that I should try to loofa off the top layers of skin so the under skin could rejuvenate its self. I suppose I am writing because I want to check to make sure that the deep itching truly is a positive healing process before I purchase another bottle. Also to prompt you for any other ideas you might have to help my condition. It is purely beauty based btw I don't have any skin illness.
The itching is a natural side effect that a healing crisis is taking place. Keep using the Oxy Oil at your discretion.
