Meeting the Raw Food Guru at the Raw Food Capital of the World

don bennettOn Friday, September 5th, I attended my very first raw food lecture at the raw food capital of the world – Lansdale, Pennsylvania! The special guest speaker was Don Bennett, one of the world’s leading raw food and health experts! Don is the director of the Health 101 Institute and a Disease Avoidance Specialist. He’s been a fruitarian for 50 years, and has healed himself from hyperglycemia, poor eyesight, tinnitus, and some undiagnosed conditions. Don has a LOT knowledge; his lecture was very informative and insightful.

In his lecture, Don spoke about the following topics:

  • why he thinks we should be supplementing on a diet that comes from the modern agricultural system, including B12 supplementation
  • colonics: yay or nay
  • what is true hunger
  • exercise that we’re meant to do (walking, climbing, sprinting) 
  • vitamin and mineral deficiencies raw foodist should be most concerned about (post coming soon, but it’s only 3 nutrients… not bad!)
  • how inaccurate information is bad for the body
  • the importance of iodine 
  • proper food combining
  • how we’re fruit eaters, not vegetable eaters and why we eat greens (interesting! Details soon!)

I learned so much at Don’s “What You Know That Isn’t So” lecture. I promise to share the really important information soon in a post.

I didn’t take much photos (just these 3 photos. Sorry for the lack of photos!), but I’ll be sure to take more next time. Before the lecture, there was a 3 course meal, which was yummy. Arnold has potlucks every 3rd Saturday of the month, so I look forward in attending more of his events. The environment at Arnold’s Way Cafe is so loving, peaceful, funny, energetic, and friendly. If you’re in the Lansdale, PA area, I highly recommend stopping by his cafe. You’ll love it there.
