The Live Food Lifestyle consists of eating a diet which features un-cooked vegetables & fruits, supplemented with raw nuts & seed and sprouted grains (ie. wheatberries,...). By exploring our Favorite Links, and Kitchen Links you'll be able to receive expert advice on how to begin this dietary adventure!

Many experienced live fooders offset the physical and psychic pollution in and near the cities by using chlorophyll-rich drinks; air and water purification systems; meditation to help cope with the increase of body/mind/spirit sensitivity to one's surroundings; and hatha yoga, to increase oxygen absorption and control over bodily functions.

For those interested in experimenting with this type of diet, we recommend joining a live food bulletin board, picking up a couple of recipe books (see books & videos), visiting a living-food educational center, such as Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, (FL), the Ann Wigmore Institute in Puerto Rico, the Ann Wigmore Foundation (NM) or the Optimum Health Institute just outside San Diego. Joining or forming a local support group to share experiences and pool resources (a garden, books, etc.) can also be very beneficial.

Although the benefits to one's physical health and spiritual life can be tremendous (ie. live-fooders have reported everything from the improvement skin & eye tone to miraculous healings from degenerative diseases, including colon cancer) most experts highly suggest that you begin slowly. First, trying a one to three-week program, then increasing the length of time depending on what you, as an individual feel comfortable with.

You will feel in good company, as the ancient Essenes (a spiritual sect living in the Middle East at the time of Christ, and the authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls) ate a mostly raw food diet which included some raw dairy products (clabbered milk) combined with regular fasting and daily meditations, to attain higher levels of spiritual awakening.

Be sure to attend one of the exciting live food events such as Raw World!

Note: We are constantly up-dating the listings in each of our City & State Guides. Please contact Peter (peter@vegetarianusa.com) if you find listings that are out-of-date. We would appreciate receiving the correct address, tel # & website.
