Another amazing beach day in Thailand on the Andaman Sea where the sand is soft and the water is body temperature. Soaking up the sun and loading up on my vitamin D!
I’m made it safely to Krabi, Thailand where I’m relaxing at the villa now that prep for our 5-day Raw Food Lifestyle Retreat is finished for today. Super excited to be teaching Raw Food Lifestyle classes Wednesday thru Sunday here at the Ritz-Carlton’s Phulay Bay resort.
I’ve crafted exclusive Thai-inspired Raw Food, vegan, superfood, gluten-free recipes using local Thai ingredients. Plus, we’ll be talking about treading lightly on the Planet, natural beauty, fitness, healthy detox, nutrition, and ways to lower stress while increasing vitality and longevity.
If you’re in Krabi, please join me here Wednesday thru Sunday! We’re going have tons of FUN!!!!

The beautiful Ritz-Carlton Reserve at Phulay Bay has invited me to develop an exclusive 5-day wellness program for their Thailand resort to launch in March 2015.
This exclusive retreat will include vegan raw food cooking classes and recipes featuring local ingredients and flavors with a focus on the Home Chef, along with my eco-green living, healthy lifestyle, fitness, natural beauty, and detox philosophy.
I will personally be at Phulay Bay teaching classes from March 18th to 22nd, 2015. These classes are complimentary to resort guests. And, guests completing all 5-days will receive a Certificate of Completion equivalent to my Level 1 Home Chef Raw Food Certification Course.
So, please book your stay now at the Ritz-Carlton Reserve website, and join me at Phulay Bay! I look forward to seeing you in paradise.
I do love the sun! Just 20 mins a day is enough to give us our recommended daily levels for Vitamin D. But, when I’m in the sun, I do make sure to cover up my face with a huge hat and sun glasses (to avoid those dark spots us Asians get…they are our ‘wrinkles’)….vanity! LOL.
Beware of chemicals in most sunblock lotions. Instead, we can EAT our sunblock. Here are some raw, vegan, gluten-free super foods that are high in antioxidants to help destroy free radical damage from the sun:
Spinach, kale, broccoli, carrots (lutein) – Dr Salvador Gonsalez of Harvard University says “our data is the first of its kind to suggest that lutein may have the potential to act as a preventative agent against UVB-induced skin cancer. In addition, these data suggest that lutein protects the skin against damage caused by exposure to UVB light, further validating our position that lutein is a critical component to overall skin health.” A study in the International Journal of Cancer found that a serving a day of leafy greens reduces the recurrence of skin cancer tumors in patients by more than 50%!
Green tea, black tea, cacao (polyphenols)
Brazil nuts (selenium)
Chia, flax, walnuts, algaes like chlorella and spiraling (omega 3s)
So eat up, and get outside! Summers here, and there are many fun trails to hike…like this one in Joshua Tree National Park…my favorite place on Earth!
I’m offering my final 2013 series of Ani’s Raw Food Certification Courses in September in Santa Monica, CA.
Level 1: September 20, 21, 22. Friday 3pm to 6pm. Saturday 8am to 4pm. Sunday 10am to 2pm.
Level 2: September 27.28.29. Friday 3pm to 6pm. Saturday 8am to 4pm. Sunday 10am to 2pm.
Level 3, Teacher Training: September 29, 30, October 1st. Sunday 4pm to 6pm. Monday 10am to 4pm. Tuesday 10am to 2pm.
My inspiration for creating these courses is to help people learn how simple, quick, and easy raw food preparation can be! It’s all about delicious and nutritious recipes made using a handful of easy to find ingredients. Complexity is added with sauces and plating.
To support a healthy diet and lifestyle, we need to know how to make our own food, quickly! In my courses, I also discuss lifestyle topics including fitness, natural beauty, organic and eco-green living, healthy detox, weight loss, and much more. And for those interested in launching their own business, writing a book, and or creating a show, I talk about business strategy, entrepreneurship, marketing strategy, and keys to building your brand.
I hope you can join me in September for one or all 3 of my courses! It’s a really fun course, and a great way to detox feasting on the best raw food ever!!
