Know Any Literary Animal Lovers?

Hi there PureJeevan readers! We wanted to let you know that Jim's new novel CHROO is available on Amazon. It's a crazy adventure involving a billionaire heiress, her Chihuahua BFF ("Chroo") and a host of human and animal characters. Find out more on Amazon! Here are some links:

As we said yesterday, we have some fantastic videos to share from RSF East last weekend. To launch a series of interviews, we want to reiterate that Pure Jeevan has always been a holistic site, meaning that we like to focus on all aspects of a human being's optimal existence (mind, body, spirit, and emotions). While it's not always "all about the food" here, it's also fair to say that it all really does start with the food -- super-nourishing 100% raw living foods! So, it's only appropriate that we begin this series of interviews with a raw food chef.

RawDawg Rory was a huge pleasure to meet and hang out with. The man exudes happiness, and it's quite infectious! We had a great time talking, and of course talked a lot about tasty raw foods. In this video, RawDawg shares a delicious dessert recipe. Here it is:

RawDawg's Sunflower Seed Cream Parfait

To make the cream, blend:

1 cup soaked sunflower seeds

1/2 cup ice water

juice of 1 lemon

1 inch piece of a vanilla bean pod

6 small pitted Medjool dates

3 T agave nectar

Alternate layers of this cream with strawberries, bananas, blueberries, or any fruit you like. For an advanced option, you can also blend fruits in with the cream recipe in order to create creams of specific colors.

RawDawg's web site is He's got videos, books, and all sorts of great stuff there. So, please check him out!
