Whoa, Pure Jeevan's Back?!

2016 update: Aha, you noticed?! Welcome. Yes, we wanted to bring the site back online again, mainly because it's so packed with articles and information. It will be a work in progress for some time, as we changed web platforms and all sorts of tech stuff. So, a lot of links are hard-coded to old Wordpress-style links... just awful. But, in time we'll get all of it back in shape. For now, enjoy clicking around and reading!

Hi everyone!? It's late Wednesday night as we're writing this. It's absolutely pouring down rain here in Pittsburgh tonight -- not in a torrential way, but more of a steady, heavy downfall. Mass volumes of water are turning our streets into temporary streams, our garden beds into mini-ponds. Most people would stay indoors during such a spell, but our daughter KDcat decided to head out into it for some magical adventure time. Kids often think in this way, you know ?And, I think there's a lesson in that for many adults: Maybe we should head out into the rain now and again. Surely it's good for the soul.

But for those who prefer to stay dry most of the time, here's an "indoor pastime" idea for you: Check out some raw foods video!? I know what you're thinking... "Wow, great suggestion. But, how in the world will I ever find all of the best raw foods videos out there "? Glad you asked!

Just head to the All Raw Directory at: http://tinyurl.com/RawVlogs. There you'll find a listing of raw videos and video channels available online. Most are on YouTube, but some have their own sites.We invite you to add links to as many raw foods videos as you like, and/or to add links to as many raw food video channels as you like. Below, we've embedded a few YouTube videos from some raw friends. All of these can be found by clicking on the listings at the link above.

Here's raw foodie Tonya Kay introducing herself and nearly getting kicked out of a Whole Foods!

Here's Sam (the Yardsnacker) on "Rocket Composting":

Here's Kevin Gianni with probably the BEST explanation of organics vs. nonorganics:

Again, if you see a great raw foods video, or want to link to the main page of a video blogger, just head over to the All Raw Directory at http://tinyurl.com/RawVlogs and share the link with the raw foods community. I'll leave you with a funny one. Here's Pete Vincent's raw-foods-recasting of the classic Jimi Hendrix tune, "Hey Joe":

Hey, PureJeevan! I didn't nearly get kicked out of Whole Foods - I totally got kicked out of Whole Foods! There's no such thing as home video in Los Angeles! Permits are good business income for the city - hehehe.

Wow thanks for sharing these videos! I especially liked the one with Kevin spraying RAID all over some food. My mom actually bought a can of bug killer yesterday and I veto-ed her right to put it in our organic garden. No thanks! Yuck!

I loved your video Tonya! Who would have thought Whole Foods wouldn't let you film in there. ;)

We should have figured a rebel like you would get totally kicked out. :-P We had a great chuckle
while watching that video of yours.

Lots of love to you!
