Have you ever tried to make changes to your diet but it seems like some part of you is not co-operating?
In this video Ted Carr is talking about how to understand how your mind and emotions work together.
Once we understand that we can then use the power of the mind to make our health goals become a reality.
Ted managed to use these strategies years ago to go on a fully raw diet and has never looked back.
Last year, he founded his own event the Canada Fruitfest which was a tremendous success.
He knows how to bring his dreams into reality.
You can do it too!
UK Fruitfest takes place from the 21st to the 28th of July 2019. The venue is Croft Farm Waterpark, Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire. Book now:
Jesse Bogdanovich came to UK Fruitfest in 2016. He shared with us his story of healing on a raw food diet.
He made a truly amazing recovery and we are so glad he was at the festival to share his story with us.
The raw vegan diet has the power to change your life. Some people recover their health, some people find new purpose in life, others fall in love with nature or fitness.
It is a truly epic adventure. Once you are on the path you will never look back!

Tony Wright joined us in 2016. He is the author of the books “Left In The Dark” and “Return To The Brain Of Eden”
Tony is the unofficial world record holder for the most days and nights spent without sleep, which shows his dedication to try to unlock the secrets of the human brain.
Could the move away from our natural diet of fruit have done more than just impacted the health of our body? Could it have affected the evolution of our brain?
Has our brain devolved? Did we once have abilities and function that we only now get glimpses of?
Read his books to learn more.
Understanding your mind and how to use it will help you make changes in your life.
Visualising the result you want, feeling it, believing it is coming will help bring you into alignment with your goals.
Ted Carr will be back at Fruitfest this year to teach more on these subjects and more.

In this video clip from UK Fruitfest, Chris Kendall shares some thoughts on how to deal with social situations as a raw vegan.
This is definitely a struggle for many people new to this lifestyle. So many social situations are based around food as are many friendships.
One of he hardest things about changing your diet is that everyone around you is not happy about it.
We will have more classes this year at Fruitfest on dealing with these social situations as a raw vegan.
A Menu From The Gathering of A Raw Food Society From 1921 in Cinncinati
You may have thought that the raw food movement is a fairly new thing. The truth is that raw food groups have been around since at least the start of the 20th century. Here is a great example:
A menu from a gathering of a raw food group in 1921 has been unearthed which tells us some interesting things about what people were eating on their raw food diet back then. Here is a picture of the menu:
As you can see, the group was called the Apyrtropher Society. I found this description of the group:
“The Apyrtropher Society was a Chicago-based group of the early twentieth century, founded by George J. Drews, for the promotion of “unfired foods and hygienic dietetics” as the best means of preserving health and the attacking of allopathic medicine and any consumption of meat, alcohol, salt, processed sugar, and other unnaturalness in the human diet. Among their efforts to service the public good was a sanitarium, Health Haven, which employed Dr. J. W. Wigelsworth, D.N., of Pathometric and Anabolic fame, as lead diagnostician, offering all the latest in radiational and biodynamo-chromatic analysis.”
Looking at the menu in more detail we see some interesting things.
- Firstly, the soup is a bit of an unusual recipe that I have never tried. Tomatoes, cucumbers, beets and lemon juice. I am not a fan of beet root so I will not be trying this soon.
- Secondly we move on to the “Aesthetic Synede”. I am not sure what this means and can not find a definition for the word “synede” please feel fee to let me know. However this is a very unusual combination. Lettuce, carrots, tomatoes, bananas, almonds and honey. If this is a kind of salad it is certainly an unusual recipe. if you are willing to try it, let us know how it went!
- Thirdly, we move on to a Bromade. Once again, I can not find a suitable definition for this. Any clue would be good. The ingredients are: raisins, almonds and wholewheat flour. It is unusual to see flour used in raw food recipes today as it is generally not considered part of the raw diet. Potentially this tasted quite good, though I am not sure how palatable raw flour is.
- Fourthly, we have a Relish of Bananas, Cranberries and Honey. This is the second time they have used honey and they were clearly not vegan in the same way that people are today. Once again, an unusual combination of a sweet fruit, Bananas, with an acid fruit, Cranberries.
- Fifthly, Grape Drink, a mixture of Grapes, honey and water. Essentially this would taste like a sweet grape juice, probably quite delicious. Perhaps the grapes they had back then were not as sweet? Grapes on their own can make a sweet juice with out the need to add any sweetener.
- Lastly, we have the Unfired Pie. “Unfired Foods” was a common term for raw food back then. The pie contains:
Crust – raisins and flaked almonds, Filling – bananas, apples, almonds and coconuts.
This would probably be a delicious recipe if made today. It may be a little high in fat for some people but it would be a delicious one off treat.
We can learn a few things from this menu
- The concept of a mostly vegan, raw food diet was around as far back as the 1920s and there were enough people interested to host events at the Hotel Gibson (one of Cinncinnati’s best hotels at the time)
- They did not come across the concept of eating mono meals but instead ate unusual mixtures of foods.
- They did not eat meat or dairy but they did consume honey and therefore were not strictly vegan in terms of today’s definition of the word.
- They used dried fruits, nuts and whole wheat flour in some of their recipes
- They did not have a meal called a “salad”, unless that is what one of the unusual names means.
It is wonderful to try to make a connection through time with these old societies and communities of raw food eaters. Imagine what it would have been like to be there. Would they have been asking the same questions and having the same problems as people have today with this lifestyle?
Back then of course there would have been less processed food and fast food. The diet of that time would have been even lower in meat and dairy than it is today. Perhaps more people were open to the idea than now?
If you have any more information on this group or any other old raw food group feel free to get in touch.
As ever, we would appreciate if you share this post with others.
