Our guest this week is health motivator and alchemist, Daniel Vitalis. Regular readers of We like It Raw will remember Daniel from his fascinating youtube videos on water magic and elixir crafting. Chances are that your reaction to those videos was the same as mine.
“Wow! Who is this guy and how can I learn more from him!”
Daniel’s videos were originally produced for thebestdayever.com community by Len Foley and David Wolfe. In addition working with that tag team, Daniel is a raw food chef, personal health strategist and co-founder of Ambrosia Mystique – a chocolate and elixir catering enterprise, (big thanks to Daniel’s business partner, and my friend, Gabrielle Brick for setting up the introduction).
Daniel has been a student of live food for the past 14 years. His journey’s have taken him through a vast range of health experience that have sculpted his current mantra: design and eat food with total and complete purpose. Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos
I use a lot of citrus. I use it in everything from my energized water to my daily dressing to my summer ginger limeade. If a good amount of your diet is raw friendly, chances are you use a lot of citrus too.

For some people not feeling good comes from doing work that they just don’t enjoy. But, for an even larger group of people, not feeling good at work comes directly from the lifestyle they live. Specifically, from what they put in their mouth.
Feeling bad at work isn’t just about sick days. It’s about the minor ailments most people have learned to accept and just work through. Minor ailments like headaches, backaches, cramps, acid indigestion, moodiness, muscle paid… the list goes on.
But the two biggest ailments that effect work the most are 1) lack of focus and 2) that general feeling of being tired. These two ailments are also the most directly related to food. Just think about all those times you’ve eaten a big, highly processed meal at work and how you’ve seen your energy and attention plummet to the ground. Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos
