Raw Vegan Energy
We’re Fueled on Fresh, Ripe, Organic Fruit & Vegetables
We have been enjoying unlimited energy for the past 10 years due primarily to our 100% Low Fat Raw Vegan Diet. A vegan diet is based on fresh, ripe, organic fruits and vegetables with NO animal products. A 100% low fat, raw, vegan diet is based on the 80/10/10 principle of 80% carbohydrates, 10% protein and 10% fat derived from fresh, ripe, organic fruits and vegetables. A low fat, raw vegan 80/10/10 diet does NOT include any animal products, processed or junk foods and does NOT include any stimulants, drugs, supplements nor ‘superfoods’. By eliminating all acid-forming foods (everything other than fresh ripe,organic fruits and vegetables) and increasing the amount of alkaline foods in our diet,(fresh, ripe, organic fruits and vegetables) we have attained a higher level of optimum health, improved our physical fitness and increased our performance level.

Fresh Fruit and Five Finger shoes = Health and Happiness
In our experience, unlimited Raw Energy is attained through consuming an abundance of high nutrient-laden, fresh, ripe, organic fruits and vegetables. It is also our experience that true happiness is attained through making conscious lifestyle choices for one’s own health, the health of the environment, and all living beings with whom we share the planet.
