East Bay Raw Food Meetup Group Message Board › The Oakland Raw Food Meetup Group Discussion Forum › Changing the date of Meet and Greet the Giannis Oct 23rd 2 p.m.
We've had to change the date of the Giannis' meetup to accommodate
a problem with parking at our downtown venue. So sorry for people who have registered for that date.
Hopefully more people will be able to come on October 23rd which is a Sunday. The meetup will be at 2 p.m.
I'm hoping Raw Daddy will be able to make it- and will update you soon about that.
In any case I assure you there will be food at this meetup.
Here are the details:
As many of you know after traveling around in their Kale Whale (their bio-fuel powered RV), meeting rawfood chefs and enthusiasts all over the country, and interviewing an amazing array of rawfood luminaries, Kevin and Annmarie Gianni have settled in our area! They are excited to meet our community. So they invite us all to come do just that.
Bring your Questions, and we'll do a casual Q & A. It will be fun to see where the discussions take us. They are in one of the best positions to answer a wide array of questions about the rawfood diet. They are always curious and looking for answers themselves. Kevin has picked the brains of Gabriel Cousens multiple times as well as David Wolfe, Dr. Alan Goldhamer, to name just a few. They have coached people to help them lose weight and to solve other problems related to diet.
Also, we'll have some raw food there that you will love. I'm pretty sure Raw Daddy will be there with his cones, about which I will update you next week. We'll have food from 6:15-6:45 or so and then start the talk.
It's $7 which will cover the venue fee, and which is waived for those who have bought memberships- ($25 waives all venue fees- now through February- and get a Hippocrates Institute laminated brochure on an aspect of the Rawfood Lifestyle – worth $9 and Kaia pumpkin seeds)
It should be informative and fun- and I hope they get to meet a great many of us!

While doing so, he learned many different non-traditional approaches to solve very traditional fitness and health problems. Since then, he has been studying and putting those techniques and philosophies into practice through one-on-one and group sessions.
His techniques are embraced by busy people because they are simple, easy-to-use, and guaranteed to get results in just a few days. He uses a simple, "take action" approach to fitness that is welcomed by many

Annmarie has been involved in athletics and healthy living since childhood. She received
her Sports Medicine Degree from East Carolina University, where she had the privilege of
working with top Division 1 college athletes (including David Garrard, now quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars) as well as the opportunity to learn, directly on and off the field, from many doctors, physical therapists, and sports nutritionists. After completing her degree, Annmarie furthered her education, studying Eastern ways at The Connecticut Center of Massage Therapy. There, she was introduced to alternative approaches to every day health, fitness and nutritional needs. Annmarie continually teaches others optimal health by being her own testimonial, always learning and growing. She puts the techniques and philosophies that she has learned into practice through one-on-one and group fitness sessions.
Annmarie and her husband Kevin are the founders of RHTV, a multi-media production company that strives to educate the public about true health and wellness and to empower people to take action in improving their own lives and the communities in which they live. Together they host The Renegade Health Show, the first segment ever created by RHTV, and to-date the most popular. It's a daily program that "changes the health of the world, one show at a time!" Each Wednesday during the show, you can see Annmarie "cooking" up something in the kitchen.
She and Kevin are the co-authors of The Busy Person's Fitness Solution, the optimal wellness system that helps busy people reach optimal health using only three to four hours of their precious time a week.
When she's not being a business woman, training others, or hosting her weekly internet show, Annmarie enjoys traveling, being outside, and preparing healthy meals. She loves to hike and run in the woods, and on occasion, you can also find her on her mountain bike. Annmarie recently traveled the country in a 'green' Rv with her husband, soul mate, and life and business partner, Kevin Gianni, exploring the culture of natural health in America. (Their cat, Jonny 5, was along for the ride, too!)
