69. Frederic Patenaude Interview

Welcome to the Love Fruit Podcast.  Today we have an interview I have been waiting on for a while.  This episode we interview raw food legend Frederic Patenaude.

Frederic Patenaude is a health author, activist and blogger. He’s been writing and publishing about health and nutrition since the age of 18. He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies when he was struck with the reality that heart disease ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. After trying a raw food diet for many years, he eventually found a more sustainable approach that incorporates the best of the traditions of raw foods, vegetarianism and the latest in clinical nutrition.

He is the author of several books including Raw Food Controversies. Frederic lives in the province of Quebec, Canada, but is a world traveler who has visited over 35 countries and continues reaching people from every continent with his health message.

Layla and Patrick first came to my attention telling me their amazing story of having 2 pregnancies on a raw vegan diet.

Patrick is a former professional soccer player and Layla has post graduate qualifications in Psychotherapy.

Layla had a history of health issues having had her appendix and gall bladder removed when she was younger. She went vegan at a young age after finding information from Peta but at times moved away from this to try different experiments over time.

They have made a number of attempts at living a minimalist homesteading lifestyle on different diets around the US, but even when growing their own food and eating simply and naturally, they never felt they were getting the most out of their health. They have lived in Hawaii growing lots of fruit for themselves and are currently travelling in the US.
