Greetings from Matt Monarch
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!! I have always just sat back as "well-known" people who didn't personally feel good eating 100% Raw TRASH the validity and potential of eating this way. I seem to get emails ALL OF THE TIME from people stating that they stopped eating 100% Raw because these leaders, who personally didn't feel great eating this way, scared them away from this way of life. I JUST got an email the other day in fact about a woman who is trying to heal from a disease, saying that she started eating animal protein again in her diet due to the fear she felt after hearing someone saying she "needed" to eat meat. That was the LAST STRAW for me!I JUST got my blood work done last week, to see how I'm personally doing eating this way, and I am planning to post the results for all of you to see! Check out my article below about this!In this newsletter you can explore:

"Matt Monarch's Blood Test Results!!!", Article by Matt Monarch
The following information is for education only and is not meant to diagnose, prescribe, or treat illness. It is valuable to seek the advice of an alternative health care professional before making any changes.First!!!, please don't get me wrong...I know that eating raw is not necessarily for everyone, in terms of dealing with social aspects, the physical detox, plus intense emotional detox. However, in my opinion, from a purely "logical"/"mechanical" point of view, ANYONE can succeed on a Raw Food Diet, if it is done correctly. Additionally, when I talk about "leaders" out there "TRASHING" the 100% Raw Food Diet, I am not specifically pointing at any ONE individual. The 100% Raw Food Diet is not easy to succeed with and there have been MANY "well-known" people who haven't felt great over the years when attempting to consistently eat this way. I've been hearing this kind of thing for YEARS now, and I've just reached BOILING POINT... I am here to tell you that a 100% Raw Food Diet CAN work, if done correctly!I am putting myself on the LINE here. I announced on our TV Show last week that I was going to get my blood work done and share the results with everyone. You can actually watch the TV Episode below where we took a trip to get my blood tested:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Cy2UyfNha0After 13 years of eating totally raw, I feel that I am an IDEAL person to be blood tested as a 100% Raw Foodist. I HIGHLY doubt that my "reserves" have run out due to the huge amount of ENERGY that I have on a daily basis.Over the years, there have been certain blood levels that "experts" claim can't be maintained on a 100% Raw Food Diet. I tried to compile all of that information and I got tested for all of that and more.Here is a partial list of what I tested for:
DHEAs (which is linked to hormones, fats, and adrenals)
Cortisol Levels (I don't eat until 1 or 2 pm and a few people commented on one of our videos that my cortisol levels must be messed up... yeah right!)
Immune System levels
ElectrolytesAND MORE!!!STAY TUNED for next Wednesday's Newsletter, as I am going to scan and post the results of my ACTUAL blood test. If you want to get the results BEFORE then, you can follow our TV Show, where I intend to share the results first, by clicking HERE. If you put your email address in to the 4th box down on the right-hand side at that link, you will then receive an email every day with the daily TV Show!
New Products at The Raw Food World
Dragon Herbs CardioPro 2000 Tibetan Rhodiola Product
I wanted to get a really HIGH-QUALITY Rhodiola product, so we contacted Dragon Herbs and asked if they could supply this. They came back and told us that the CardioPro 2000 is EXACTLY what we were looking for. They said that the PRIMARY ingredient was Rhodiola and the other ingredients acted as enhancements for the Rhodiola. All three herbs in CardioPro are world class tonic herbs. Each one has been used for centuries for their general benefits and specifically as tonics to the heart and cardiovascular system; includes Rhodiola, Reishi and Gynostemma.
Dragon Herbs Ginseng Sublime
Ginseng Sublime is distinguished by the quality of the Ginseng roots used to make it. This highly concentrated tincture is made from the finest red Ginseng roots in the world. It contains Heaven Grade North and South Korean Ginseng, certified by the respective agencies that control Ginseng in those countries. Ginseng Sublime also contains Heaven Grade Shu Chu Ginseng from China. Shu Chu Ginseng is the finest Ginseng cultivated in China. Heaven Grade means its is the crème de la crème of this Ginseng. Also used to produce Ginseng Sublime is Emperor's Tribute Red Ginseng, Heaven Grade of course, grown in the former Emperor of China's own Ginseng plantation. Recent studies have shown this to be the most potent cultivated Ginseng in the world. Ginseng Sublime also contains Red and White Ginseng roots, 8 years old or older, grown on Dragon Herbs own Ginseng plantation in Chiangbai Mountain, just a few kilometers from Shu Chu Valley, the growing site of Shu Chu Ginseng. This House Ginseng is organically grown and processed naturally by an ancient technique by local villagers.
Frank's Finest Mexican Spice Blend
Chef Franky G JUST came out with a new Spice Blend!!! Angela and I personally had 20 bags of all his different flavors brought to Ecuador for us. Everyone is LOVING this concept of the perfect blend of spices to DAZZLE their taste buds!!! Frank's Finest Mexican Blend explores the flavors South of the Border and will add culinary delight to all your favorite Mexican dishes. The addition of epazote adds a traditional element and flavor that is often used in Mexican fare. If you are a fan of cumin, this blend will soon become a staple in your pantry. Enjoy in pates, your favorite taco recipe or sprinkle on a salad!
Big Bamboo Salad Bowls!
Since we just got all of these beautiful new bamboo plates and flatware on our website, I made sure to also get some HUGE bamboo salad bowls too. I know Raw Food Eaters LOVE their BIG beautiful salad bowls!!! Now you can get a bowl made of sustainable bamboo! This isn't the end of this new product line either! We plan to bring in more types of smaller bowls and other items! Stay Tuned!
Freeze Dried Almonds
These freeze dried almonds are a totally unique product. Alex Malinsky decided to freeze dry nuts! When he came to our wedding festival a couple of years ago, he brought freeze dried macadamia nuts and hemp seeds. Those were more oily nuts/seeds and had salt on them. They almost tasted like popcorn and it was INCREDIBLE... Well!... Alex just launched the start of his freeze dried nut line, starting with freeze dried almonds. Although they don't have salt or much fat compared to the other nuts, they are definitely a uniqueand exciting product. For some reason it seems that people don't get FULL eating these almonds like they might with regular almonds. These nuts are also mineral-rich, as they soak all of their almonds in pristine water and ocean minerals before sprouting them, to increase their enzymatic activity, increase nutrition, and convert hard-to-digest fats and proteins into simpler amino acids and essential fatty acids. This is definitely an item to try and I am excited about the plans they have to bring other kinds of freeze dried nuts on the market, like the ones I've tried in the past! :-)
Deep Moss & Purple Dawn Hemp Soft Sleeves for Glass Straws
To go along with the lovely new decorative colored smoothie straws that we just got in, we also got these beautifully colored hemp soft sleeves to carry your glass straws! They are 100% Hemp Soft Sleeves. They are machine washable and made from 100% Romanian hemp webbing. Fit easily into purses, jacket pockets or backpacks. These are IDEAL for storing your glass straws to avoid breakage ;-)

The Raw Food World Radio Show - Dr. Edward Group and Ron Strauss
This week on Friday, February 10th at 3:00pm Pacific time, we are super-excited to have Dr. Edward Group coming on the radio show. Dr. Edward Group is the owner of the Global Healing Center (GHC). Many of you are probably familiar with his very POPULAR product called Oxy-Powder. He wrote the book "Health Begins in the Colon", and he is an expert in colon health and other cleansing modalities. I plan to go deep in this interview about colon health, his Oxy-Powder product, and cleansing the colon in general. I am most curious how he feels about cleansing the colon with water, such as enemas, colon hydrotherapy, colema boards, etc, as you know that I am a HUGE fan of cleansing the colon with water. This interview is going to be extremely informative.
Dr. Edward Group is an alternative doctor who is not only an expert in colon health but also other cleansing modalities. We are going to go deep into parasite cleansing, liver cleansing and MUCH MORE! This interview is going to be EXTREMELY informative and can be a KEY in bringing your health to the next level! :-)

February 'At-Cost' Specials
Remember that you NOW have the opportunity to always get 13% Off the 'At-Cost' specials by joining 'The Raw Food World Benefits Program' - just click HERE.
I am REALLY EXCITED to bring you a fresh batch of the MOUTH-WATERING Dates that we get directly from the Ojai Farmers Market. These Dates are still WET and gooey and melt in your mouth! The Barhi Dates are the WETTEST and Gooeyist! The Honey Dates come in second in "wetness" and have an amazing sweet taste! We just HAD to offer the ever-popular GIGANTIC JUMBO Medjool Dates also in this line-up! Lastly, we have the tasty new Empress Dates. These guys aren't as wet, but they are chewy and sweet as can be. Just buy the deeper discounted variety 4-pack to try them all ;-)
The Acai Powder is one of Angela's absolute FAVORITE foods. For some reason, the women seem to go NUTS over this product and just eat it straight from the bag! I've never really wanted to promote the Acai Powder too much, because it has always seemed expensive for 4oz... SO... We bargained back and forth for weeks and we were finally able to buy a MASS at a really good price. Normally, we give about 30% - 40% off on these specials, but we got the Acai Powder WAY DOWN LOW for 50% off ;-) Yeeeee-HAH!!!
Almost EVERYONE in the health movement knows that the BEST of the BEST extra-virgin Olive Oil is from Bariani. It is HIGH-END! Once you taste it, just like my mom, you will surely never go back to any other Olive Oil. Everything about this superb Olive Oil is classy, which can even be sensed from the product picture to the right. In addition to offering the Bariani Olive Oil 'At-Cost', we are also offering the Herbed Peruvian Olives with the pits 'At-Cost'. The HERBED Olives are a personal favorite of many. Olive you! ;-)
Next on the list we have two of our FAVORITE nut/seed butters on our website. The Creamy Almond Butter has just gained more and more popularity! Many people consider it a "gourmet" Almond Butter. ...and if you LOVE the taste of Tahini (I sure do!), then you will LOVE the Living Tree Community Tahini. You can sense the high quality of it through the texture. They use a slicing method to make their nut butters, which really captures the essence of the seeds. You can now get these TOP TWO most popular nut/seed butters on our website 'At-Cost'! :-)
With all of the sugar in the Dates in the 'At-Cost' specials and the Persimmons in the 'new product' section, Angela demanded that I offer some sort of GREEN to counterbalance all this sugar! Therefore, we decided to add the Spirulina tablets 'At-Cost to help balance us all out ;-)
We had a MASS of people this month who wanted to see the Fresh Liquid Royal Jelly on special offer too! Although this product is a bit more difficult to handle and ship, we found a way to make this happen efficiently. Please make sure to *read the description* of the product online before you buy it, so that you know what you are getting into with this frozen item. The description discusses how this is a frozen product and how it ships and who is responsible after purchase. We generally don't get any complaints with this item though - please keep in mind that Royal Jelly is much more durable than some people think. Our supplier of this product told us they left their supply in a refrigerator for over a year and they were still able to raise queen bees on it. ;-)
One of our almond suppliers agreed to offer us an INCREDIBLE deal on their Raw Organic Almond Flour. They gave us such a deep discount, that we'll also be giving well over 30% off the retail price on this item. Last time we offered this 'At-Cost', it sold EXTREMELY well!
LAST BUT NOT LEAST, the Everything Raw Bars were SO POPULAR last month, that we asked our supplier if we could offer these on special again in February. They agreed! We hope you enjoy! :-)
The following specials are available until February 28thFebruary 'At-Cost' Specials
