Announcer: This program is brought to you by

Teri Hausman:  I’m Teri [Stuck?] host of “Beauty Now,” a weekly show on lasers, lipo, lashes, lips, health, beauty and more.  Today we have author David Wolfe who is considered a raw food expert.  He is going to share his beauty secrets for his book Eating For Beauty.

[Samples from upcoming show]

David Wolfe:  Coconut’s the best source of electrolytes naturally and it’s also the oils that are in the coconut – it’s one of the most beautifying oils and it’s a saturated fat and I know everyone’s going to go “Oh my god it’s saturated fat, it’s bad” or whatever, and actually saturated fat is good for you as long as it’s raw and plant-based because it has very powerful anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-microbial action.

Beans are actually toxic, you know, you have to cook them to actually make them edible.  When you’re farming in nature you have to have plants that help balance out or draw the nitrogen into your farm and also keep predators out and keeps bugs from over-eating your foods and if you mix beans into your garden that’s a very effective way of doing that and Native Americans did that for that reason.

Essentially we’ve got to get started somewhere and so what we’ve put into the Eating For Beauty book is a seven-day program where you really get onto what we really call a catabolic program which starts to break down the fat cells, starts to move the toxins out, gets the bowels moving, and that includes enzymes, it includes raw foods, it includes anti-oxidants, it includes super foods, it includes removing from the diet cooked, starchy food and then also cooked fat or cooked oils.

[Start of show]

Teri Hausman:  Welcome, and thank you for joining us.

David Wolfe:  How you doing, Teri?

Teri Hausman:  I’m doing great today and I’m just reading your book Eating For Beauty and there’s so many tips in here for us, because actually beauty is from within and it’s the most important kind of beauty because we want to keep our skin and our organs and everything else glowing.  What’s your best secret tip and tell us about your book.

David Wolfe:  Well the number one tip about beauty, and the number one insight, I believe, in the whole field of nutrition and health is that it’s all got to come from the inside out.  That’s really what changes the world, what changes our world, what changes our reality is the transformation on the inside.  So Eating For Beauty is about getting the right minerals, the right nutrients, the right foods into our body so that we can actually develop or unfold or blossom into the radiant being that we are really destined to be.

Teri Hausman:  How did you come to write this book Eating For Beauty?  How did you become an expert?

David Wolfe:  Both my mom and dad are medical doctors, I was born into that kind of a world, in fact I was conceived in a medical school library.

Teri Hausman: Oh nice.

[Both laugh]

David Wolfe: Probably next to the one hidden book that they had in there that had anything about holistic and natural healing.  But I was very deeply enmeshed in that world my entire life, I mean I grew up in a doctor’s office.  And then I assiduously tried to avoid getting into that kind of thing, any kind of health, healing, any of that kind of stuff, or at least doctor-oriented health/healing my whole life until I was about 19 and then I became aware that I was allergic to dairy products.  I began to study and research it and there’s that Roman thing that says, “One who avoids their destiny will be dragged, and one who aligns with their destiny will be drawn,” and I attempted to avoid my destiny and I was dragged, but eventually I got completely drawn into the wake of real natural health and healing which is primarily a nutritional component, you know “you are what you eat” seems to trump every other law of health and healing.  At least, you know it’s 40% maybe of health is exercise, or 30% or something, and then I just got totally into nutrition and eventually really oriented towards raw foods, super foods, herbs, and chocolate, and in particular skin, hair, and nail health and that’s what became eventually the Eating For Beauty book.

Teri Hausman:  Well that’s really interesting and I want to get started here talking about some of how our listeners can get started on your program, if they were going to go to, let’s say, a Whole Foods – you’re pretty much organic right?

David Wolfe:  Yeah, I eat either a diet that consists of food that I pick from my garden, from the forest around my house, or is purchased organically.

Teri Hausman:  So realistically for most of us that don’t have a forest around our house and that don’t grow our vegetables although we might like to try, if you were going to go to a Whole Foods, what would be on your list?

David Wolfe:  Well I definitely would select cucumbers, I would select arugula, I’d select coconut products of different kinds.  For example, if they have young coconuts you can chop them open with a butcher knife at home and drink the water out of them and then scoop the milk, or scoop the meat out.

Teri Hausman:  What benefits do coconuts give you?

David Wolfe:  Coconut’s the best source of electrolytes naturally and it’s also the oils that are in the coconut – it’s one of the most beautifying oils and it’s a saturated fat and I know everyone’s going to go “Oh my god it’s saturated fat, it’s bad” or whatever, and actually saturated fat is good for you as long as it’s raw and plant-based because it has very powerful anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-microbial action.  That’s why coconut oil was used as an antiseptic by the Vedic civilization for, whatever your belief is, five to ten thousand years, and that’s what I use on my skin and I use it in my food, and we should all be knowledgeable about coconut oil and it’s beautifying qualities and have some at home because it’s just incredible.

Teri Hausman:  So you’re saying, just go in and if they have the little coconuts, just cut it open and drink the juice and what else do you do?

David Wolfe:  Yeah, and by the way I’m not talking about those brown, hairy coconuts.  That’s a very difficult product to deal with and it’s not what I’m talking about.  I’m talking about the young, white coconuts.  They’re usually saran wrapped.  They can be purchased in boxes or cases of nine.  That’s kind of a main staple for many raw food enthusiasts all over the world. 

On top of the coconut products I’d also recommend looking for some of the fresh fruits that are in right now, like figs which is one of the great beautifying foods of the world, one of the great primate foods of the world, and one of the best sources of calcium in nature.  Then on top of that, hemp seeds.  Hemp seeds are phenomenal, what an incredible super food they are, they’re probably the best source of protein in the natural world and also the beautifying oil, the oleic acids that are present in hemp seeds.  Macadamia nuts, raw, organic, make sure you have a little bit of that every day, just on the side, they’re so tasty.  Then olive oil and olives, another great product to look for.  That pretty much rounds out the list.  I’d definitely include onions, I’d definitely include radishes as well, and maybe pumpkin seeds, too.  That was a big mouthful so I hope somebody grabbed something out of all that.

Teri Hausman:  I think they need to grab a pencil and write it down as you’re listening to the show, because that’s true, that’s really good.  Let me go back to the hemp seeds, how do you find hemp seeds?  I’ve never even seen them.

David Wolfe:  Hemp seeds are available in almost all health food stores right now, in fact some friends of mine with the company Manitoba Harvest, a Canadian company, they’ve been working to get hemp seeds into every Whole Foods in America and I think they’re almost there.  Most Mom-and-Pop operations have them.  You can’t ship them into the United States with the shells on them, but you can crack them out of the shell and bag them in a nitrogen-flushed bag and you just open that up and have the open hemp seed and you just put that into a salad or you can snack on it straight.  It’s a great trail mix additive.  I like to also sprinkle it onto whatever kind of desserts that I’m making whether it’s a coconut-based ice cream, or a cake of some sort, it’s just awesome.

Teri Hausman:  So you actually put them on everything then.  So what do they taste like?

David Wolfe:  They’re really nutty.  I mean they taste a lot like – when you get hemp seed into a butter, when you get it really mixed and mashed down, it’s almost like peanut butter but it’s got a little bit fuller of a protein side, I mean it’s a complete protein source.  It’s one of those things when you start eating it you go “My God, we should have been eating this instead of peanut butter.  It should have been hemp seed and jelly sandwiches.”

Teri Hausman:  So you would eat those instead of peanut butter or almond butter?

David Wolfe:  Right, you could do it exactly like that.  They’re very cool in terms of where they fit in the spectrum, hemp seed is closer to fish so if you’re a fish eater but you’re worried about mercury or PCBs, or things in that world, then you come over to hemp seed as the next alternative.

Teri Hausman:  Do they have omega-3’s in them?

David Wolfe:  They have omega-3 fatty acids, in fact they’re the highest natural source of omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids in the right combination of any plant found in nature.

Teri Hausman:  I’m going to go buy some today.  I am, that sounds good!  Now let’s talk about your non-beautifying plant foods.  I was really depressed that you said beans.  What’s wrong with beans?

David Wolfe:  Beans are actually toxic, you know, you have to cook them to actually make them edible.  On the good side beans were used by Native Americans who were big bean eaters because they would help - when you’re farming in nature you have to have plants that help balance out or draw the nitrogen into your farm and also keep predators out and keeps bugs from over-eating your foods and if you mix beans into your garden that’s a very effective way of doing that and Native Americans did that for that reason.  But we’ve gotten away from that understanding and gotten into eating beans all day long which is really, it’s not a natural food for human consumption because they’re just too naturally toxic.  If you eat a raw soy bean it’s actually toxic.  Certain beans, like kidney beans, are at a point of being so toxic that if you eat a handful you can land yourself in the hospital.  Foods like that are subtly irritable to the system, even when they’re cooked, and that’s what we’re moving out of, we’re trying to move away from stuff that is allergenic or irritable to the system and move more towards stuff that is soft and gentle on the system.

Teri Hausman:  What about avocados?  Did you make a comment about avocados, I think you did.

David Wolfe:  They are dynamite, I mean avocado is one of the great beauty foods in the world.  I’m a huge fan of avocados, in fact my nickname is “avocado.”

Teri Hausman:  Oh thank God because I love avocados. [Both laugh]  And those got a bad rap for a long time but now they’re saying they have the good fat in them?

David Wolfe:  That’s right, that all fell apart, the whole bash the avocado routine fell apart because really what’s occurred is there’s been a realization that kind of the soybean industry and the corn industry are trying to sell their oils and trying to drive any other competitors out.  People would rather have you eating corn oil or soybean oil or other rancid oils rather than natural, healthy oils such as avocado.  Now that’s kind of falling apart as people realize, wait a second, avocados aren’t fattening, wait a second, avocados are good for you, avocados are the best thing for the female reproductive system, and it just goes on.  So eat an avocado a day and you’ll be very, very happy.

Teri Hausman:  I’m very happy to know that because I actually – I mean this is going to disgust everybody – I actually like mayonnaise and so instead of mayonnaise I put the avocado on and it tastes just like it, it’s creamy and it’s great, you don’t need mayonnaise.

David Wolfe:  That’s right on, and by the way, you can make your own mayonnaise by taking honey and coconut oil and blending them together and playing with the flavor and you can move that over to a mayonnaise type of consistency and it’s pretty darn awesome.

Teri Hausman:  Is that recipe in your book?

David Wolfe:  That recipe is in one of my books, I’m not sure if it’s Eating For Beauty, but – you know what it is, it is in there, it’s in Eating For Beauty.

Teri Hausman:  Oh good, okay and I’m going to tell the listeners later how we’re going to do that, but right now we’re going to have to take a short break and we’re going to be right back with David Wolfe, Eating For Beauty.

[Commercial break]

Teri Hausman:  Hi this is Teri [Stuck?]  and we’re back with David Wolfe, we were just talking with him about his book Eating For Beauty.  Welcome back David.

David Wolfe:  Hey, how you doing Teri?

Teri Hausman:  Well you know what?  This is a lot of good information in part one and let’s just talk about more things.  Tell us more about if we were going to go to the market, we’ve got the list of super foods, what else would you go buy if you’re just starting off your Eating For Beauty plan, what would be in your market basket?

David Wolfe:  I would also orient yourself towards getting the right kind of salt, into moving away from some of the problem salts that are out there which is the iodized, kiln dried salt that we all grew up on that uses the food preservatives and getting onto sea salt like celtic grey mineral sea salt, that’s something to have in your cupboard. 

Make sure you get water, preferably that’s in glass.  One of the things we know about plastic is plastics can leech into water, there’s xenoestrogen, estrogen causes us to become overweight, it leads to the Syndrome X, metabolic syndrome problems that we see where people try everything, they can’t lose weight.  We want to move towards glass and we want to move away from that kind of thing so we want to make sure we have the right hormonal balance because that creates beauty, when you have the balance between estrogen and progesterone.

We also want to be oriented towards some of the great super foods that are out there like goji berries and like raw chocolate nuts, which is raw cacao and raw goji berries which, by the way, are probably the poster children of the whole super food movement.  Goji berries are the number one food in Chinese medicine.  The cacao bean is the nut that all chocolate is made out of and if you look at the research, all research is saying “Hey, there’s something in chocolate that’s good for us,” well what that something is is the nut, the original cacao or cocoa, and you can eat that raw now or find it raw, and if you dip it in honey during your first experience if you’re a cacao virgin, if I can say that –

Teri Hausman:  Yes, you can.

David Wolfe:  You dip it in honey your first experience and eat that, you’ll probably fall over when you detect what level of flavor is actually present.

Teri Hausman:  So the cacao, you can get that at Whole Foods.  And what about the asai berry?  Is that the same as the goji or is that different?

David Wolfe:  That’s different.  Goji berry is originally from Tibet, Mongolia, and China, with some varieties growing in the western deserts of America.  Asai is a palm fruit, like a date, comes from a palm tree.  It grows in the Amazon basin and is a very, very potent super food as well but has completely different properties, it’s more of an anti-oxidant based super food whereas goji berry is more of a protein, anti-oxidant, caretenoid super food where it’s got more multiplicity of special properties.

Teri Hausman:  You just brought up something that I was going to ask you.  If the beans aren’t really good for you, a lot of vegetarians rely on beans for protein, so I was going to ask, what’s the other sources of protein that you like?

David Wolfe:  There’s tremendous proteins that are available now in super foods, goji berry’s a complete protein source – by the way, cacao beans aren’t actually a bean, they’re a nut, they fall into the nut family or genera of plants or botanical plants, like the pecan or the cashew or the walnut – but I really believe that we’ve got to move a little bit towards some of the richer protein elements found in super foods.  Spirulina by the way is a green powdered algae which has been eaten in Mexico City for five thousand years, it’s a complete protein source, it’s the highest protein content food in the world, blue-green algae is one of the highest protein content foods in the world. 

Bee pollen, actually I’m right here next to my flowers in my garden sitting here, and I’ve got bees right around my head, and the guys are just covered in bee pollen which is the pollen of flowers and a complete protein source as well and a real protein source.  I mean Max Planck Institute did a study on protein, they found out 50% of it’s lost when you cook food.  So when you’re dealing, with raw super food proteins you’re getting real protein, sometimes for the first time ever, right to your cells, you really feel a difference in the way your neurotransmitters work, in your strength, agility, and endurance.

Teri Hausman:  Well what about your seven day raw food weight loss plan?  Tell us about that.

David Wolfe:  Essentially we’ve got to get started somewhere and so what we’ve put into the Eating For Beauty book is a seven-day program where you really get onto what we really call a catabolic program which starts to break down the fat cells, starts to move the toxins out, gets the bowels moving, and that includes enzymes, it includes raw foods, it includes anti-oxidants, it includes super foods, it includes removing from the diet two particular major food groups which is cooked, starchy food – that’s like baked potatoes, rice, beer, bread, pasta, corn chips, potato chips – and then also cooked fat or cooked oils and one of the most important oils to remove is any kind of soybean oil, any kind of pasteurized dairy product, and any kind of roasted nut, and of course corn oil and anything like that as well.  When we’re doing all that if we drink a lot of water, that is a very impactful piece of the whole puzzle as well.

Teri Hausman:  How do you get started actually though?  You’re going to go and buy all of these products, and then take us through a typical day.  Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, how do you do it?

David Wolfe:  Okay, let’s say you get up in the morning and you’re like, “What do I do?”  First thing you do, first step of the day, get a jug of water, maybe a liter.  A liter is a really good amount.  If you don’t know what a liter is, it’s equal to a quart.

Teri Hausman:  Can you put lemon in it?

David Wolfe:  Yes, put a little lemon in there, take a little bit of that celtic sea salt that we talked about, stir it up, and drink the whole thing first thing in the morning.

Teri Hausman:  First thing in the morning, okay.

David Wolfe:  Yup, before you have any food, before coffee, before anything.  The second thing is you begin to go for maybe an hour without eating.  Then you start looking at, “Okay, what’s going to be my first meal of the day?”  Now a lot of people don’t really eat much in the morning, they’ll do say a cup of coffee and then get going around their day.  What we really recommend if you’re going to have your coffee, you’re going to do that with some of these super foods or anti-oxidants, or you’re going to blend it with your cacao, which is your raw chocolate, and you’re going to do a mocha, okay?  So that would be a first meal for some people. 

My meal usually is just raw cacao blended almost in the protein smoothie kind of way, so that you can, you know – we all grew up on the protein shakes and stuff like that – but I do that all with super foods now.  I have cacao which is chocolate, I use a base of coconut water or just water, or maybe an herbal tea that I had the night before, something, and I’ll just pour that in, it’s a liquid base and I’ll throw my goji berries in there, I’ll throw my hemp seeds in there, I’ll throw the raw chocolate in there, I’ll throw some green super foods in there like spirulina, and I’ll blend the whole thing up with a little bit of a [gave?] or honey or if you like maple syrup you could use that, something a little sweet to make it taste real good.   Then boom, you’re flying on where the protein shake has taken us which is to the level of super foods instead of the [waste?] stuff and all the other kind of outdated protein products and stuff, now we’re onto the new thing.  Then you fire into “Okay, let me see how many hours I can go without really eating.”

The next round you’re going to have some enzymes before you have your lunch.  You really have to have a nice salad with your lunch, preferably using avocado as your primary calorie source for that lunch, maybe some nuts and seeds.  Women can generally get away with it easier than men because men have more calorie requirements and are like, “Hey I need some oomph for that lunch,” and you could use a lean protein like a fish or something if you really need more.  But the main idea is a big salad for lunch, you move into the afternoon, you snack on super foods and vegetables throughout the afternoon.  You snack on pumpkin seeds, you snack on goji berries, you snack on celery, you snack on carrots.  If your energy really drops low you could do another little smoothie drink with the cacao, with the hemp seeds, with the goji berries.  I can’t get into all of the nuances in an interview like this but it’s in Eating For Beauty, it’s in all my books.

Then you get into the evening and that’s when you have a nice fresh vegetable juice if you can make it.  We used to do 50/50 carrot/celery juice, that’s a lot of fun.  If you don’t do vegetable juices go to your health food store and make them do it for you because no one likes to clean the juice machine, I’m one of those people who doesn’t clean the juice machine.

Teri Hausman:  So you can just go to your health food store and buy it pre-made?

David Wolfe:  Right it’s either pre-made or they’ll make it fresh right there for you.

Teri Hausman:  Right.

David Wolfe:  Then into the evening that’s when you get to have a little fun with a little dessert, and that’s all good as long as it’s organic and it’s raw food based.  We are very big fans on my side of the world of raw organic coconut and cashew based ice creams.

Teri Hausman:  That sounds good.  How do you make those, though?  Do you have to have an ice cream maker?

David Wolfe:  You don’t have to have an ice cream maker.  There are other way around that.  Ice cream makers help, they improve it dramatically.  The ice cream recipe that I love is in Eating For Beauty and I’ll tell you when you make that you don’t really even want anything else ever again, it’s just awesome. 

Then you continue on with your enzyme program late in the evening before you go to bed and you just keep doing that.  Now, two things, ice cream that can’t be weight loss, and avocado, that’s fattening.  Absolutely not.  I mean all that stuff will cause you to drop weight immediately because raw, organic food is not fattening.  You don’t see a deer in nature that’s overweight because they cannot – the stuff that really coagulates in our system and sticks to our ribs literally is all that cooked oil and cooked starch.  If we drop that stuff out of our diet the weight just comes off immediately.  Some people gain more weight with cooked oil, some people gain more weight with cooked starch but it’s going to be one of those that’s going to be the catalyst that once you remove it causes the weight to come off.

Teri Hausman:  What about alcohol?  What about wine?  They are saying red wine has reversitrol but do you stay away completely from alcohol?

David Wolfe:  Me personally, I don’t drink any alcohol at all.  I find it way, way too sweet for my system.  That’s a total personal choice.  Wine is essentially grape juice that’s been fermented, obviously, so all of the great stuff that’s in grapes you can get it all in wine and you really want to have organic wine because the other stuff is very heavily sprayed.

Teri Hausman:  Right and if you are going to drink organic wine, there’s a new one I think called Echo Wine and it’s organic, and if you want to find out about that you can go to  So tell us more in the last couple minutes, keep going, you’re really great.  We’re getting so much great information.

David Wolfe:  The thing about diet and the whole idea of Eating For Beauty is it’s more of a direction, it’s not really a diet.  Once we get into diet we’re in trouble because of the yes/no problems which is like “you can have that, but you can’t eat this.”  As soon as you tell a child, for example, “Don’t go in that cupboard,” they’re going to go in the cupboard as soon as you’re not looking.  Well we never lose that even as adults.  What ends up happening is we have this little inner child that through willpower will resist the temptations and then suddenly break down and eat the toxic stuff, or the fast food, or whatever.  That’s a really difficult game to win.  So we get out of that game with the approach that’s presented in Eating For Beauty and the other books, and that is it’s more of an idea of like, “Here you get to add this in, here you get to have this, you get to add that, here try this, add this in,” and the flavor sensation, and the subtleties and the nuances of eating slow food instead of fast food begin to be so pleasurable that they overwhelm the old addiction and naturally you move away from that stuff.

Teri Hausman:  I liked your advice on addiction, do you remember what you said?  I think that you said, instead of saying you can’t have it, just kind of go off it slowly and make it a habit.  A habit, that’s what you said.  That was good.

David Wolfe:  Yeah, building healthy habits is much more valuable than just jumping from one kind of diet to the next thing to the next thing.  It’s all about healthy habits and you find really healthy foods, let’s say it’s radishes, you really love radishes, well make sure you have them each week.  Make sure you have your cucumbers each week.  You just add it in for you and your family.  What happens, especially if you have kids, kids have much stronger intuitions and instincts about food, they will naturally gravitate to the fruits and the vegetables and the super foods and the healthy granola options and trail mix options that you provide for them.  That’s the next generation.  I mean, that’s the most important change you can make is getting your kids on the healthy stuff.

Teri Hausman:  I agree with that, I mean you have to start them early.  If I had it to do over again it would be way different.  What about cellulite?  I like what you said about cellulite and nuts.  New information to me.

David Wolfe:  Yeah it’s all about grapefruit.  It’s all about grapefruit.  Grapefruit oil and grapefruit seed oil and rubbing it onto the cellulite itself, and taking enzymes, this is a supercritical aspect of my own formulation of enzymes which is called Beauty Enzymes.  It’s designed to get the cellulite off, it’s the worst plague upon humanity.

[Both laugh]

Teri Hausman:  Well you’re lucky that you’re a man, they don’t really have it as much as women.  Even really skinny women get cellulite and it’s absolutely true.  So tell us really quick, we only have a couple more minutes, about the Beauty Enzymes.

David Wolfe:  Beauty Enzymes is a full spectrum enzyme that I designed with a scientist friend of mine.  It’s been about seven or eight years we’ve had that product out.  It’s a therapeutic grade enzyme, meaning it’s almost like pharmaceutical grade.  Most enzymes are very ineffective, they’re about 10% effective.  When you’re dealing with Beauty Enzymes you’re looking at say a 90 plus percent effectiveness in terms of its available usefulness.  It’s designed to break down cellulite, fat cells, fat, it has a real high concentration of lipase.  It’s very tricky to manufacture lipase, which is all done in Japan, and then we mix that with other enzymes here in America.  It’s certified Kosher, it’s certified organic.  We can’t put the organic label on it, unfortunately, because there’s no certification official for all enzymes in the world, but it would have that if we could get it on there.

Teri Hausman:  Where do we get it?  Where do we buy it?  How do we buy it?  Do we have to make it ourselves?

David Wolfe:  No, no, the enzymes are already packaged and available through which you can connect through your website, what’s your website again?

Teri Hausman:  It’s and we’re going to get all the different links from David to buy his book, to get everything, to get healthy, and beauty.  I just have to say to everybody that I want to dedicate this show to my mom.  She just recently passed away from cancer and everybody should get checked.  She grew up where you didn’t really have to eat healthy, you didn’t really know about eating healthy, and I don’t know if it would have made a difference, but I really do believe going organic and using the glass bottles like David said, because I do believe that plastic and microwaving, and all that stuff, I would microwave in a glass bowl if you had to do it.  There’s so many new things that we’re learning about the environment and cancer and all those different things. 

David, thank you so much, you’ve really told us so many great tips today.  If you want to buy David’s book I really recommend it.  It has so many amazing, different pictures and things that I didn’t know about.  So you go to and we’re going to link you to all David Wolfe’s Eating For Beauty tips.  We’re going to have to have you back because we’re out of time.  I can’t even believe it, it went so fast.

David Wolfe:  It went by so fast.  Thank you, Teri, I’m sorry to hear about your mom.  All of us are going through the loss of our parents and we’re realizing we’ve got to make changes so we don’t end up going to the hospital and all of that stuff that our parents are going through.  It’s kind of a wake-up call for our generation.  With the bad comes the good, comes the inspiration to change.

Teri Hausman:  You know why I really believe it too, is both of my grandmothers, my other grandmother just passed away, and my other grandmother is going strong at 94.  I really don’t think that our grandmothers grew up with all the pesticides and things that we grew up with.  So I really do believe what you’re saying about children is get them to eat healthy now and there’s so many great ways to make them like things like guacamole and avocados and things like that.  Thank you for being with us.

David Wolfe:  Thank you, Teri.

Teri Hausman:  We’re going to have you back, you’re great.

David Wolfe:  Thank you so much, have the best day ever.

Teri Hausman:   You too, and all of our listeners, too, thank you.
