The 'Raw Union' Recipe eBook, by Angela Stokes?Monarch & Solla Eiriksdottir

Everyone who attended the 'Raw Union' Wedding Celebration Party seemed overawed at HOW GOOD THE FOOD WAS!!! I received so many AMAZING comments about how good these Raw Food Dishes were. EVEN my family cleaned up their entire plates full of raw food!!! If this doesn't tell you that the food was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOIUS, then I don't know what will...

If you look at the comments on the Raw Union videos below in the next section, you will see dozens of people asking for the Wedding Cake Recipe, main dishes and more. I also asked on one of our TV Shows, 'who would buy the wedding recipes eBook, if we decided to make it?', and I got MASSES of emails excited for us to create this eBook...

SOO, by POPULAR DEMAND, we have created the 'Raw Union' Recipe eBook!

My lovely new wife, Angela Stokes-Monarch spent HOURS on putting this 'Raw Union' Recipe eBook together. It is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!! This recipe eBook is 24 pages long with GORGEOUS pictures throughout.

You can order the 'Raw Union' Recipe eBook by clicking HERE

Solla Eiriksdottir, the head chef of the 'Raw Union' celebration party, WHIPPED up the recipes in this eBook just for YOU :-) to enjoy! Not only does this Recipe eBook have every single dish from the 'Raw Union' Celebration, including the extraordinary Raw Wedding Cakes from Chef Chaya Ryvka, but Solla also added some of our other FAVORITE dishes that we were experimenting with the month before the wedding. This is a Recipe eBook that you don't want to miss out on.

I thought it was WONDERFUL that there were even people reviewing the dishes at the 'Raw Union' festival, in videos online - they were so tasty! The 'Raw Fu' Magazine is also putting a couple of the recipes in their next issue, with a review of the whole festival and wedding.

The creamy Broccoli Bliss dish towards the bottom left of the picture here is to LIVE FOR and was my brother Brian's FAVORITE. I LOVED the Chutney at the top left! It looks like cooked food chutney, and it is made with raw Incan berries, mulberries, olive oil, hot pepper and more :-).

We had four different cakes at the 'Raw Union' celebration. Solla's chocolate cup cakes were OUTRAGEOUSLY GOOD and that was my family's FAVORITE portion of the dinner. I also can't forget to mention the Kelp Noodle Jungle Peanut dish at the very top of the picture, Cesar Salad, nut pates, plus the AMAZING flax crackers, which had a taste and consistency like no other I've ever tried. :-)

The 'Raw Union' Wedding :-)))

It seems the impact of the Raw Union Festival is something that will keep rippling throughout our communities for many years to come. For example, I was in the Ashland Food Co-op a couple of days after the event and one attendee, Theo walked up to me with a HUGE smile, looking ready to cry. He said that the festival helped him to TRANSFORM in such a big positive way that he senses shifts in his life on many levels, including releasing pain about a past relationship. There have been dozens and dozens of other people stating that this 'Raw Union' event had a MASSIVE impact on their lives, transforming their outlook on what is possible, COMPLETELY... And... I thought that I was the only one!

We went with the intention for this to be a 'HIGH-CLASS' event... AND... I can't get over how CLASSY this 'Raw Union' Wedding turned out to be!!!

Bishop David "Avocado" Wolfe did such a STELLAR job. My dad LOVED the fact that instead of, 'for better or for worse', our vows were 'for better or... for the BEST EVER' :-) We caught the ENTIRE Wedding Ceremony on these first two videos to the left and right.

The amazing LIVE music left most of the audience in tears. We were very blessed to get a lot of the 'Raw Union' Wedding on video camera. So, you can check out La Soprana (Raw Opera Singer Michelle), Goji Girl, and many others singing LIVE in the first few videos... The video to the left here shows lots of the live singing.

You can only IMAGINE how the Post Wedding Celebration was; we believe it topped out at around 450 people in the end! It will be a party that I will truly NEVER FORGET. I have to admit that in the days before the wedding, I had more adrenalin pumping through my body in regards to giving my 'Groom's Speech' than participating in the actual wedding ceremony. I felt great about how it turned out though and you can view my speech on these two videos to the right and below.

My brother Brian also created an AMAZING Photo Montage of Angela and I to be viewed at the wedding celebration dinner, which includes pictures from our childhood all the way through being together as a couple today. The photo montage is in two parts and can be viewed at the following two links down below:

Photo Montage Video Part I

Photo Montage Video Part II

Kevin Gianni and David Wolfe headed my 'Bachelor Party', which is another event that will stick with me for the rest of my life. About 40 - 50 men attended this event and powerfully initiated me into my life partnership. These men passed on so much wisdom to me, which truly helped TRANSFORM me and I feel is definitely aiding me into being the best partner that I can be. I would love to get into more details, but the rest is just a SACRED guy thing ;-)

I KNOW... that I am the LUCKIEST man on the PLANET! Life is just SO EASY since Angela stepped into my life. It's like an effortless loving playtime, 24 hours a day. I feel so excited that our lives have just begun together and I can only IMAGINE what is in store for us in the future. Deep thanks to those of you that were present at the 'Raw Union'. Every single person played such a INTEGRAL co-creative part in making this an unforgettable event... Thank you :-)...

AND... WOW... Nobody can stop talking about how AMAZING the food was...

    New Products at The Raw Food World

    Oceans Alive Marine Phytoplankton, 1oz
    I am SHOCKED that it took me this long to get Oceans Alive Marine Phytoplankton on the website!!! I have been almost living on this stuff for the last week now and I LOVE IT! Not only is it the most readily absorbable food on the planet and an easy way to get minerals needed by the body, but it is so easy to use. I will say that it saved my lazy butt over the last week many times. When I don't have time for a green juice, I just empty a dropper full of Marine Phytoplankton into my water.

    David Wolfe wrote an ENTIRE SECTION in his new Superfoods book on Marine Phytoplankton. The benefits of this POWERFUL Superfood are endless!

    Additionally, I love to switch up the different types of green juice, green powders, algaes and so on, to always get a wide range of different nutrients. For some reason, this stuff seems to make my water taste like milk to me. Angela doesn't feel the same as me about that, but we both just LOVE IT! It is so important to get minerals needed by the body, and I am glad that I have found this excellent product, even if just for my personal use.

    It is suggested to take one dropper-full (abt 15 drops), to get the recommended dosage, yet I have been taking around 4 droppers in each drink, a couple of times a day. I just love it. If you take the recommended dosage, this bottle will last you around a month. Mine lasted a week ;-) I LOVE IT!

    REDDROX, Canister of 25 sticks
    MOVE OVER GATORADE!!!!... We now have a natural alternative that hydrates like no other!!!! Open a stick and pour it into either HOT or COLD water and you have yourself the ULTIMATE hydrating Rooibos drink. Reddrox founder, Lisa Marie, has brought REDDROX into the NFL and Pro Baseball. There are now many successful teams that have banned thr refined-sugar-laden Gatorade and replaced it with REDDROX... AND... It is good for EVERYONE, including you and me, my dear raw foodie friends...! Before I go on anymore, please watch this hilarious introductory video with Lisa Marie down to the left below...

    Boost performance and speed recovery with the drink that's naturally rich in antioxidants, electrolytes & more! To perform at your peak and feel your best every day, you need to hydrate. But sports drinks have sugar, caffeine, and scary artificial ingredients. And Water is BORING and has its minerals stripped away in the chemical treatment and sterilization process before it gets to your body. What can you do? Try ReddRox! It's the bold, new, natural and organic way to hydrate your body for peak performance! Plus, ReddRox has vital mineral electrolytes that help keep your muscles working longer and stronger! There just isn't a better, more satisfying and delicious way to get the vital fluids your body needs for work, play - and a long and healthy life!

    What is REDDROX?

    REDDROX is a potent concentrate made from the delicate stems and leaves of the powerful South African Red Bush plant. This plant was discovered by the bushman in the Kalahari Desert and has been used by everyone from infants to the elderly for centuries.

    Naturally rich in electrolytes, minerals and antioxidants, the nutrients are released when the red bush is placed in water, giving that water a power beyond hydration! Many doctors have observed the benefits in South Africa for over 300 years and now we are able to take the leaf itself from the red bush plant and put it through a natural process that optimizes its very natural and balanced combination of electrolytes and minerals. As a ready-to-drink beverage or added to your water, this specially processed red bush provides your active body with the ultimate in hydration.

    What are the health benefits of REDDROX?

    Naturally caffeine-free REDDROX is the perfect beverage for everyday consumption, and can be enjoyed in unlimited quantities. It is also low in tannin, a substance that affects the body's metabolism by interfering with its ability to absorb iron and protein.

    REDDROX provides antioxidant protection because it's rich in flavonoids and polyphenols. It hydrates the body on a cellular level, which will slowly rid the body of toxins and allow your cells to be replenished by clean and clear fluids.

    Its high mineral and polyphenol content helps to maintain healthy skin, teeth, bones and metabolic processes. REDDROX is the ideal choice for people of all ages and from every walk of life. And it has zero calories, so it can aid in weight loss!

    With its many positive attributes, REDDROX is a great choice of drink for health-conscious people.

    REDDROX contains no colors, additives or preservatives, making it a natural beverage. It contains no caffeine. According to studies conducted in South Africa and Japan, Red bush (REDDROX) has been shown to aid in health problems such as insomnia, irritability, headaches, nervous tension and hypertension.

    Studies also show that this tea contains anti-spasmodic agents, which can relieve stomach cramping and colic in infants.

    In South Africa, Red Bush (REDDROX) has been used to treat allergies such as hay fever, asthma and eczema very effectively.

    It is also used to treat irritated skin. Red Bush (REDDROX) is brewed and placed directly on infected areas. REDDROX contains antioxidants, which can help slow the aging process and boost the immune system.

    REDDROX is a great thirst quencher and is an excellent beverage for active people, including children.

    This tea contains no oxalic acid, making it a good beverage for people prone to kidney stones. REDDROX contains the minerals, copper, iron and potassium, calcium, fluoride, zinc and manganese. Alpha-hydroxy (for healthy skin) and magnesium (for the nervous system) are also components of this drink. In South Africa, pregnant women and nursing mothers drink Red Bush (REDDROX) because it contains no caffeine.

    Tocotrienols (Rice Bran Solubles) 16oz
    This is the HIGHEST QUALITY of Tocotrienols on the market. A yummy, nutty tasting source of vitamin E, fatty acids, protein. A tasty addition to shakes, cereals and sweet dishes.

    Fat Cells and Being Overweight on a Raw Food Diet - Article by Matt Monarch

    The following information is for education only and is not meant to diagnose, prescribe, or treat illness. It is valuable to seek the advice of an alternative health care professional before making any changes.

    Do you happen to carry extra weight even though you have been eating 100% Raw or high raw for many years?

    I have noticed a common pattern with people who experience being overweight as raw foodists: in the past, most of these people were overweight to at least some extent. When someone first becomes overweight on a Standard American Diet, the body can't handle all the excess fat and waste. Therefore, the body duplicates fat cells in order to be able to accommodate all the waste. This is how a human being can reach way over 300lbs; they just keep duplicating fat cells and filling them up.

    Once fat cells are created, it is said that they never leave the body again (no matter what kind of diet/lifestyle you have). When an overweight person begins a 100% Raw Food Lifestyle, their fat cells drain, they tend to lose LOTS of weight in the beginning and they look GREAT. However, as the years go by, many tend to gain weight back... even with a 100% Raw Food Lifestyle.

    Why would this happen?

    When you choose a healthier diet and eat less obstructive (less damaging) foods, your body detoxifies. Detoxification involves gases and toxins leaving your cells and tissues. When an overweight/obese person chooses this type of lifestyle, for many years they will cleanse out and eliminate MASSES of toxins from their cells and tissues, while they simultaneously lose weight.

    Once toxins are released out of cells and tissues, our bodies do not want them back. What the cells and tissues then do is to CONTRACT as hard as they can, so that only small amounts of toxins can now enter.

    After a number of years of eating better and cleansing out, our cells reach a point of contraction to where the majority of the old SAD (Standard American Diet) toxins have been eliminated. At this point your body has caught up with your new Raw Food Lifestyle and your body RAPIDLY becomes more efficient. The body is always striving for ultimate health; now it will try to surpass your current Raw Food Diet and 'ask' you to eat less.

    Suddenly... eating high carbs such as dried fruit and large amounts of fat puts excess weight back onto your body, even though these were the same raw foods that initially helped you to lose the 40 - 150 pounds.

    Why??? What changed?

    Since your body's cells and tissues have contracted and do not want to take in any extra toxins, they will try their HARDEST to resist allowing more waste back in. Therefore, any extra toxins, carbs, fat and so on within the bloodstream will go to the easiest, most accessible place in your body: your EXTRA fat cells, which don't ever disappear, without surgery. Therefore, to keep excess weight off, a person in this situation now needs to eat smaller amounts, otherwise those fat cells will simply re-expand to accommodate the extra waste.

    When cells contract, this is actually a really good thing overall, as your body becomes more efficient, requiring less food for fuel. However, a lot of people are not emotionally ready to handle eating smaller amounts of food like this. When you embark on a (100%) Raw Food Lifestyle, it can be useful to have in mind the 'end goal' of eating smaller amounts, over time. In the long run, it is key to eat small amounts of food to take your health to unparalleled states. If you are the type of person with excess fat cells from being overweight or obese, then you will have a smaller margin for error in terms of keeping extra weight off.

    Here is some more of the science behind it all: when you improve your diet by eating less obstructive foods, less fermentation and waste is produced in the body, freeing up space for the cells and tissues to freely dump waste into the bloodstream to be released through our eliminative organs. This means the cells can contract. The more kinds and quantities of foods that you leave out of your diet, the more your cells are able to contract because less food creates less waste and gas within the body, allowing more and more old, stored toxins to release from the cells.

    If you then do something like going on a LONG-TERM Juice Feast, there is even LESS fermentation and waste being produced in the body from the juice intake and your tissues and cells can dump even MORE gases and waste into the bloodstream, while your cells contract even more... And... your body becomes even more efficient, which means it needs even less food to maintain high energy levels. This is why many people find they (re-)gain weight after a Juice Feast. Their bodies have become more efficient and need less food, so any extra intake is stored away as body fat.

    This is one reason why it is good to take things slowly with raw food transitions, so that it is easier to stay emotionally balanced over time, as you eliminate certain foods from your intake. There is no need to jump into a 100% Raw Food Lifestyle right away. The key to great health is CONSISTENTLY eating fewer obstructive foods as the years go by.

    Remember, this pattern of contraction of the cells is a really good thing overall...

    This indicates the body is becoming a cleaner, more efficient 'machine', needing less fuel to maintain high energy levels. This is also one point at which you may sense that you become more 'in-tune' and receptive to the UNIVERSAL COSMIC spiritual energy.
    The main challenge for people seems to be staying on track emotionally with these shifts around food intake - there are many ways we can support ourselves through these transitions though (Angela's book Raw Emotions is a wonderful resource on this topic).

    If you throw yourself into a (100%) Raw Food Lifestyle and stay with it for many years, there is a GREAT chance that you will be 'FORCED' to emotionally evolve along with the process of eating smaller amounts or you will experience ill effects (such as fatigue, weight gain, sluggishness, etc). I personally felt 'forced' in this way to evolve along with the process of consuming less ;-) I do not have excess fat cells in my body though from my past - if you do have a collection of excess fat cells, bear in mind that you may find it more challenging to keep excess weight off, as those cells will always be present, to re-fill with extra waste. Aim overall for consistency, balance and moderation in your intake and you'll be more likely to keep those tricky little fat cells vacant over time ;-)

    New Products at The Raw Food World

    Elixir of the Lake & Warrior Food

    Jameth Sheridan from Healthforce Nutritionals does it again!!! He now has come out with two AMAZING new products called 'Elixir of the Lake' and 'Warrior Food'. Elixir of the Lake is an amazingly high quality Blue-Green Algae, straight from Klamath Lake, similar to the Ancient Sun and E3-Live products. Jameth designed this product to be the best Klamath Lake Algae choice out there.

    When Angela and I tasted it, we couldn't believe the potency of this product. It's best to use a very small amount. It may seem expensive at $59.95, however, I feel it truly is the best value, compared to other Klamath Algae products.

    We Interviewed Jameth Sheridan on our TV Show about this product; we talked about Elixir of the Lake, how it is processed and so much more, which you can see in Part I of the videos with Jameth - click the video image to the left.

    Part II of this video can be seen to the right here. In this video you will get to see Angela and I experience this 'Elixir of the Lake' POWERHOUSE for the FIRST TIME. What an experience that was! I personally intend to start taking 'Elixir of the Lake' many times weekly. I love the fact that we can just bring it with us on the road and not feel concern about it going bad on the journey, as it is a stable powder.

    Warrior Food!!!
    Jameth Sheridan also talks about another new product he developed - 'Warrior Food' - in Part I of the videos above. It comes in two flavors, 'Plain' and 'Vanilla Enhanced + Phycocyanin & Enzymes'. Jameth says that any form of protein is taxing on the liver, so he put liver support right into the Vanilla flavor, which includes Phycocyanin extracted from 'Elixir of the Lake'.

    Ingredients: Sprouted, Raw, non-GMO Brown Rice Protein, Organic Hemp Protein, Organic Actual Vanilla Bean, Wildcrafted Nopal Cactus, Organic Whole Leaf Stevia

    Enhanced Nutritionally: Phycocyanin extract from Klamath Algae (for Kidney support), enzymes (protease, bromelain, papain, amylase, lipase, cellulase, alphagalactosidase) - for assimilation.

    Enhanced Energetically: Homeopathic, Magnetic, Vibrational

    Supplement Facts:
    Serving Size: 2 Heaping Tablespoons (24g)
    Servings per container: 10.5
    Protein Per Serving: 17g

    Here are all the latest new additions to The Raw Food World Store:

    The Raw Union Festival, Episode #'s 153 - 155

    We've got FOUR NEW episodes today on the Raw Food World TV Show. Just start at the top with this David Wolfe Video and make your way down :-)

    The 'Raw Union' Festival/Expo/Wedding is going to be THE RAW EVENT OF THE YEAR and you DON'T WANT TO MISS OUT ON IT!!!

    We are gearing up for the Raw Union Festival!!!... And!... It is only 10 days away!... And...!!! It is going to be OFF THE HOOK! :-)

    If you missed the 'Durian Eating Contest' with David Wolfe and I, in that video David stated that this is the fourth marriage he has officiated. He is extremely EXCITED to marry Angela and I and to be part of this EXTRAORDINARY Raw Union. Angela and I are amazed that it is suddenly only ten days away!!! :-)

    Rainbeau Mars, in the video to the left, will be teaching yoga every day of the festie and also MCing parts of the event. Rainbeau teaches yoga classes around the world for Adidas and these classes often contain around 4000 people at a time. This is your chance to do yoga with Rainbeau Mars in a more intimate atmosphere.

    The night before the wedding Ceremony, the men and the women adventure away from each other and the sacred bachelor(ette) parties begin...

    Kevin Gianni is heading the men's gathering and I am a bit nervous about it all. It is an absolute MYSTERY to me what Kevin has up his sleeves. I had to question Kevin in the video to the right here... YIKES!!! I have a feeling that Kevin is going to be involving David Wolfe in this Bachelor Fun. Oh MAN!!!!

    Angela is so EXCITED for the Sacred Women's gathering. Annie Jubb is going to head a special Ceremony and then Angela will head the Woman's Sacred Song circle with Annie and her GREAT friend Michelle Sabathne'. I wish that I personally could be in that room for just one SPLIT SECOND so I could be uplifted by these Goddesses singing FREELY into the ethers...

    We just booked Cathy Silvers to be our Elixer Bar Hostess. During the party after the wedding, Cathy will be offering three different raw chocolate elixers for this WONDEROUS celebration, which will be sure to send you off into the stars and back. Now... in addition to the 'all you can eat' Raw Food Buffet, there will be an UNLIMITED supply of these Wild Wizard Raw Chocolate Elixers at NO COST to everyone attending this celebration.

    This will surely be an outstanding event to remember and we're so thrilled that Cathy will be adding this extra . Many of you know Cathy Silvers as Jenny Piccolo, one of the main characthers on the hit show Happy Days.

    When I was talking to Cathy this weekend, she actually said that she and the cast are going out to dinner together this week, I guess that includes Scott Baio and Henry Winkler. FUN!!!

    OH!!!! And... it gets even BETTER!!!

    We have !!!SEVEN AMAZING BANDS & MUSICIANS!!! who are going to be playing LIVE music all weekend long. There will be genre's, which include folk, rock, reggae and more. We even have Michelle, a Raw Opera singer, who lost over 170 pounds on a healthy diet. We are not getting a DJ for the Post Wedding Celebration... We are going to have Live Music througout this well structure post wedding celebration :-)
