DECEMBER 8, 2011 This weeks guests are Toni and Mike Allen, coming straight to us from Jamaica!! Mike and Toni Allen are the creators of Raw and Delicious Lifestyles. This is a raw food community that also includes a very active facebook group by the same name. Both Toni and Mike have been active for almost 4 decades in what they call a health message. Although Toni was a vegetarian/vegan she became very unhealthy and obese. She thought eating what was called health foods was good but it made her sick. She was always searching for a natural remedy or solution for her diabetes and high blood pressure and was very lucky in December 2010 to stumble upon the raw food diet. Overnight she became 100% raw because the diet made perfect sense to get rid of the processed foods that were making her unhealthy. She was able to cure her chronic diseases within 30 days and lost over 100 lbs. in 10 months. Now Toni and Mike are devoted advocates for the raw food movement and hold classes, lectures and retreats and actively participate in their Facebook group sharing and supporting with thousands of member around the world the importance of eating a whole living plant based diet. They teach by example and Toni has become a “poster child” for the power of raw by her awesome transformation of going from 230 lbs to 117 lbs – a size 24W to a size 4 petite. In 1990 as newlyweds they moved to the beautiful island of Jamaica where Toni’s father was born. They made the island their permanent home. Living in the tropics allow them to enjoy an abundant amount of fruits and vegetables which they eat in season only and grow as much of their own as possible. They live in the mountains of Jamaica with local farmers who they also share and co-op with as much as possible.
