One-Year Anniversary Declaration, by Matt Monarch
I sit here at my desk, contemplating what to write about this WONDROUS day. My heart has a DEEP THROBBING VIBRATION. My throat feels almost swollen from the overload of love emanating up from my heart. Tingly vibrations PERMEATE throughout my hands, arms and neck, making all of my little hairs stand up ON END. I feel a tear in my eye as I am about to convey to you my thoughts about my wife, Angela Stokes-Monarch and our anniversary today…
It feels like YESTERDAY when I watched the women at our wedding take Angela off to her room, to get ready for our ceremony. I’m a guy and it took me about three seconds to get ready. Pacing back and forth, waiting for the women, I had NO IDEA what to do with myself! My heart raced like a car in the Indy 500 and it felt like every minute seemed to take over an hour to pass. I decided to just submerse myself in co-ordinating the place, to get everything ready for the ceremony. There were about 450 people in attendance, helping to make it the most special event I have ever attended… However… it was seeing Angela in her wedding dress with an excited SPARKLE in her eye that made it into an event I will surely NEVER FORGET!!!
In a few paragraphs, let me tell you why I feel that I am the LUCKIEST man on the planet. It wasn’t until Angela entered my life that everything seemed to become ‘effortless’ for me. Although I still had a lot of growing up to do when we first connected, it was the first time in my life where it felt like everything just flowed with ease. Previously, I had always had this feeling of being painfully LOST in some way, which came with a feeling of being on a NEVER-ENDING search for SOMETHING, and I did not even know what I was looking for. When Angela and I committed to our path together, it felt like this ‘never-ending’ search came to a close. For me, this was and is like living in perpetual bliss. I have written many times before about the very special characteristics Angela posesses, which I hadn’t seen before in another human being. She is always DRAMA-LESS!
Angela doesn’t entertain ANY relationship drama whatsoever and she spots this type of drama instantaneously when it arises. Before I met Angela, I had never met anyone like this, who doesn’t accept or support an INKLING of drama within their lives. Angela seems to have the ability to PINPOINT the roots of any ‘negative’ energetic expressions that arise in practically ANYONE!!! Initially, when we first met, for COUNTLESS MONTHS I would defend myself after any ERUPTION of mine that she would pinpoint. At the times I wouldn’t settle down she would just send me LOVE until I would work the things out that I was SOLELY responsible for. I have grown and learned so much with Angela. I feel that she has rubbed off on me QUITE A BIT and I now feel happily settled into our “No Drama” lives together.
What can I say?… I am married to the MOST BEAUTIFUL woman on the planet!!! I just want to EAT this BEAUTIFUL woman up!!! It’s like this magnetic force that continually pulls my being into Angela’s aura. Her aroma is like a drug that puts me in a spell and INTOXICATES me. It’s tough, because I have to bring myself to be as conscious as possible when I am under this spell, as I don’t want to hurt Angela by squeezing her too hard or accidentally biting her. This spell gives me this outrageous energy burst that simply… makes me… want to SQUEEZE, BITE, and eat her all up!!! For me, our house doesn’t really matter and neither does our location – if I lost everything tomorrow, it would all be OK, because within Angela’s aura is home to me…
It was one year ago from TODAY when Angela and I sealed our union with a magical KISS. Unlike any other woman I have ever met, our wedding didn’t hold much stress for Angela. I have never seen another woman so GRACIOUS on her wedding day. She was just like a little girl, experiencing the moment as if it was any other moment of fun. Many times I looked at her with curiousity, as I witnessed her experiencing everything in a calm manner without any extremes of worry or grandiosity. She was just playing the game with me, our families and our friends, which was truly joyous for us all.
So, what’s next for us??? We don’t truly know. However, probably within the next couple of years we will start to consider bringing a child in to join us. So, perhaps the next picture that you see of Angela holding a baby will not be a shot with her niece. We TRULY don’t know what is next in store for us, but we do know that our dreams are coming true daily. We are living in our OWN beautiful house that we’ve both always dreamed about, we are growing our own food, we are living in clean air, and we are as happy as can be!!!
I LOVE Angela more than ANYTHING!!! It actually !!!HURTS!!! how much I LOVE this woman!!!
Angela Stokes-Monarch… I smile, I love you, I hold my green juice up HIGH and I celebrate our LOVE and WONDEROUS life that we have co-created together!

New Products at The Raw Food World
TRULY RAW Fino De Aroma Cacao Powder, Butter, Nibs, Beans & Paste -
Arriba Nacional Variety!
I’ve been waiting for this moment for a LOOOOOONG… time! We have FINALLY found a Truly Raw Cacao, which is made using the BEST variety of cacao on the ENTIRE PLANET!… This is an heirloom variety… AND… It is the ULTIMATE Ecuadorian TRULY RAW Cacao that you will ever taste… Arriba Nacional Fino De Aroma!!!
There are so many rumors running through the raw foods community about which products are truly raw and which are not truly raw. However, I have personally witnessed the processing of this cacao, from start to finish and I can assure you that this raw cacao is TRULY RAW!!!… AND… It’s the best heirloom quality available at this moment in time. You will sense the difference in its fruity, nutty, caramel, floral and malty flavor taste and aroma. Fino De Aroma means ‘fine aroma’. This fine aroma is only found in fine quality, heirloom cacao and this is the only Fino De Aroma TRULY RAW Cacao on the market that we know of.
Pacari is the brand name of this TRULY RAW Arriba Nacional Fino De Aroma Cacao. Pacari means ‘Nature’ in Quechua, an indigenous language of Ecuador. I have never seen such a sustainable operation in my entire life as that run by Pacari. They have such an amazing community outreach program here in Ecuador, helping farmers, schoolchildren, communities and much more! Ecuador is KNOWN for its TREMENDOUS cacao beans. History shows us that wild cacao plants have been found in Ecuador dated as early as 4000 B.C., thus giving the cacao here a truly ‘heirloom’ classification.
In this video below, not only will you meet the owner of Pacari and see the love, truth and sincerity emanating from his being, but we also have snippits of the chocolate processing plant to share with you, showing that these products are indeed 100% Raw. Please keep in mind that I was only able to reveal a minimal amount of footage of the raw cacao manufacturing process, to protect their trade secrets! However, this is the only raw cacao product that I can personally vouch for, as I have seen it with my own eyes… And FORGET the fact that it is even raw… It is well-known that this Ecuadorian Arriba Nacional Fino De Aroma chocolate is the BEST available worldwide anyway… Enjoy…
We’ve got ALL of the Pacari Chocolate Ingredients available now, which includes Cacao Beans, Cacao Powder, Cacao Nibs, Cacao Butter AND Cacao Paste! Click HERE to order the Best, Truly Raw Chocolate on EARTH!
Creamy Raw Almond Butter is BACK!
I am SO EXCITED that this CREAMY Almond Butter is BACK!!! Thousands of you have experienced this amazing, delicious creamy almond butter, which just POURS right out of the jar in liquid form.

Unfortunately, the supply was out.., BUT… we just got over 1000 jars back in stock NOW and to make sure we don’t run out again, we are placing another order immediately, to arrive in two months.

SPROUTED Trail Mixes!
Enjoy two trail mixes that are actually ALIVE and SPROUTED! We’ve decided to start carrying a few trail mixes on the website and these ones are the FIRST two, due to HOW MUCH our manager Zack LOVES them!!! Over the next few weeks we’ll be bringing more trail mixes onto our website. IN FACT, I am trying to convince Zack to create a trail mix for us of his own concoction, which he already makes, using many of the ingredients that we sell. Everyone LOVES this mixture and we’ll hopefully have that soon for you too!
Mango Goji Fire Sprouted Trail Mix 7oz
The “Mango Goji Fire” Trail Mix was designed to create a fusion of sweet, spicy, and crunchy ingredients, offering a dynamic experience in each bite. This includes chunks of chili and lime seasoned mango, antioxidant rich goji berries, crunchy sprouted almonds and seeds, and other exotic dried fruits.

Imagine how many more lives we
could reach and touch with a ‘real’ TV Show
(btw, if you’re wondering why I’m not in the video too, we tried to enter a video
with both of us at first
and it was rejected – the Oprah team said the auditions can only
feature one person, so
it came down to Mr. M, as the more clearly ‘American‘ of the two of us, to woo the
lovely Ms. Winfrey…
THANK YOU for playing the game – we love you
BTW, it seems that you can vote more than once…
This month’s ‘At-Cost’ Specials are OFF THE HOOK!!! We’ve got some of the MOST POPULAR Products on our website ‘At-Cost’. Additionally!!!… we are trying something new this month. We are offering 3-packs of these items, to save you an additional 10% on each item! Check it out below!!!
This month we are going to offer my FAVORITE tahini on the PLANET, which is made by Living Tree Community, BELOW our normal cost. We worked with Living Tree Community to purchase a MASS of this tahini, so that we could bring you this UNHEARD of price! I don’t know how they make this tahini taste so amazing, but I do know that they use more of a slicing method to make their nut/seed butters than a grinding method. The result is the BEST-TASTING and BEST-TEXTURE raw tahini on the market, in my opinion. Tahini is a fantastic source of calcium and healthy fats – it is a GREAT food for breastfeeding mothers, especially. In health food stores, you’ll generally see this tahini for about $20. We are going PEANUTS here though and offering it for $8.97, and that is the price before you even utilize the 7% or 12% coupon below!!! Oh… and lastly, you can order the 3-pack of this tahini, which brings the price down even more.
We are also offering the MOST POPULAR olives on our website ‘At-Cost’ this month. My favorite are the plain olives with celtic sea salt on them and no pits. I like them the best because the ingredients ONLY include olives and celtic sea salt. NOTHING ELSE! However, the MOST POPULAR olive on our website are the HERBED olives with pits. We are going to offer these herbed olives at $5.97 each and the olives with celtic sea salt on them for only $6.97. Again… these prices are BEFORE the 3-pack option and any of the coupons that you can use below too
Not only am I VERY EXCITED to be offering these Raw Chocolate L.O.V.E. Cups ‘At-Cost’, but I am ALSO EXCITED to let you in on why these Raw Chocolate L.O.V.E. Cups are the most NUTRITIOUS and MINERAL-RICH Raw Chocolate Product on the market! Kelly, the creator of these Raw Chocolate L.O.V.E. Cups uses only TRULY RAW chocolate beans to make these products, which are SPROUTED before they are put into his products. THIS IS UNHEARD OF!!! Did you even know Cacao Beans can Sprout?! There is not even ONE cacao bean in these L.O.V.E. Cups that is not sprouted! These Love Cups are ALIVE!
Not only that, these beans are of the same Arriba Nacional Fino De Aroma Variety from Ecuador that we mentioned above, which in my opinion is the HIGHEST-quality cacao variety out there. Kelly is in partnership with native chocolate producers here in Ecuador and he reserves ALL the Raw Cacao Beans from them that are sprouted. There is only a limited supply of these and Kelly gets them all, for these Truly Raw Chocolate L.O.V.E. Cups, which we are now bringing to you ‘AT-Cost’!!! ENJOY!
We are going to offer the Truly Raw Certified Organic Almond Flour ‘Below-Cost’ this month. Last month we offered it ‘At-Cost’ but I ordered a wee bit in excess, so we are going to blow them out the door for an even a lower price than last month now. Normally, this almond flour is retailed at $17.95. Last month we offered it at $12.57. This month, we are going to offer it at $8.95 because we still have around 200 left. Order now if you want to get in on this incredible offer, before we run out. There is a 3-pack option on the almond flour too.
