      This years VegFest was off the charts. It was an incredible gathering of luminaries from all walks of the Veggie World. As living proof to the benefits of a vegan lifestyle, John Robbins (approaching 60) arm wrestled vegan body builder Robert Cheeke (in his mid twenties). It was a close call until the end where Robert finally prevailed. Blossoming Lotus Portland was one of the key sponsors of the event.

      Stay tuned for our next newsletter which will include information on John Robbins, Dr. Colin Campbell, Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Bo Rinaldi and many others that presented at the show.


      Victoria Boutenko from the Raw Family is the keynote speaker at the upcoming Raw and Living Spirit Benefit.

      She is the proud mother of two children, who along with her husband, is the Boutenko family, also known as the Raw Family. The four of them embarked on a diet of entirely raw foods in 1994, when they became seriously ill. Victoria had arrhythmia and edema and was obese and depressed. Igor suffered from painful rheumatoid arthritis and had severe hyperthyroid. Sergei was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes and was supposed to go on insulin. Valya had asthma.

      A leading authority in the field of live food nutrition, she is the author of 12 Steps to Raw Foods: How to End Your Dependency on Cooked Food.

      “This is a marvelous book full of useful information for people who are seeking a better understanding of the relation between nutritional factors and optimal health. Victoria, as always, asks probing questions and searches every avenue that can lead to new answers. Her conclusions are remarkable, often surprising, and always illuminating.” -Dr. Melvyn L. Iscove, MD

      Many thanks to Anna Masteller of Carmel Valley, California for her amazing Sunflower Seed Pate recipe. Anna's recipe will be included in 7 MINUTE CHEF Volume 2. She will receive a free copy of the e-book and her recipe qualifies her to win one of the 50 runner up prizes or the Grand Prize trip to Kaua'i.

      Summer Sunflower Seed Pate

      As Anna writes, "this recipe is mouthwatering and completely satisfying to vegans and omnivores alike. It is totally versatile; it can be used as a dip, spread, filling for wraps, rolls, bell peppers etc. What is so wonderful about this recipe is that it can be made from ingredients you probably already have on hand and it keeps in an airtight container in the fridge for a week or more. It even freezes well. The ease of preparation, availability of ingredients and long shelf life make this recipe one I want to share with the world...not to mention it's obvious health benefits and the fact that it appeals to any style eater. Thank you!"
