GETTING ESSENTIAL MINERALS IN A RAW DIET

Minerals are absolutely critical to good health. According to David Wolfe, “95% of all body functions rely upon minerals. Minerals orchestrate the delicate biochemistry of our bodies.” Today health educators in the know will tell you that all disease is either caused by toxicity or deficiency. And the full spectrum of minerals required for good health are very deficient in a majority of the population today, in America perhaps 95% deficient.

A raw food diet can greatly help such a situation. At the same time, a raw food diet has its challenges. For example, phytates and oxalates block the bioavailability of important minerals found in raw dark green leafy veggies and grains. How does one make sure he or she is getting all the essential minerals and nutrients?

On Wed., June 19 at 6 pm, at the Opera Plaza Community Center, 601 Van Ness, San Francisco, find out how to make it work. You will hear from a battery of experts on raw food nutrition, as well as receive handouts with vital nutritional information.

After this presentation, you will be equipped with the know-how to make a raw vegan diet work for you.

Before the presentation, enjoy a fabulous vegan dinner, totally vegan and totally health-supporting. No eggs, dairy, honey, oil or added sugars. Designed by a certified Nutrition Consultant, this dinner will literally make you feel good. As someone said recently, "I felt like a new man the next day."

Experience it yourself. Come to Opera Plaza, 601 Van Ness, San Francisco, this Wed., June 19 at 6 pm, and enjoy this all you can eat, health-supporting vegan dinner. Take the elevator to the first floor, then security will key you down to the mezzanine for the event.

A fifteen dollar requested donation covers the all you can eat dinner, plus the presentation on minerals in a vegan diet. The Nutritionist donates her time. Funds go toward facility rental, food, transport and other costs.
