Thank you to all who supported my Longevity in a Bottle crowdfunding campaign which succesfully closed on Saturday August 11th, 2012. I will be launching our website ASAP: http://LongevityPower.com.

In the mean time, enjoy my crowdfunding video and funding project description:

 

When I was 15, I lost 50 excess pounds in 6 months by biking every weekend, eating fewer of my favorite sourdough baguettes, and introducing a handful of key superfoods into my life.

I learned at a young age that a few small actions done well can have profound results for my health and wellness. I wanted everyone to experience this firsthand!

Fast forward to 2006 (age 21). With the help of my friends I created the WildBar (http://WildBar.info), the first organic, raw, superfood-infused meal replacement bar. Tens of thousands of people like you loved its taste and bliss-enducing potency.

Today (I’m 27) I need your help with my next product launch: Longevity in a Bottle, created by my fresh company Longevity Power Inc.

Longevity in a Bottle is the first synergistic blend of humanity’s greatest 58 organic superfood and herbal extracts that for thousands of years have promoted vitality, immunity, and long-lasting energy.

Many of these herbs built your ancestor’s DNA which led to you!

Nowhere in history have these herbs been combined in one place so that you can take full advantage of the immortal traditions of Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic herbalism, Pacific coastal and island medicinal traditions, European folk herbalism, and North and South American shamanism.

And no time in history has humanity desperately needed access to the health and vigor that our ancestor’s once knew, than now! All ingredients in Longevity in a Bottle are adaptogens which promote vitality and immunity by nourishing the body’s ability to adapt to toxic and stressful environments, something we can all relate to.

We acquire and blend our elite quality ingredients while setting the organic and green standard in the wellness industry. Longevity in a Bottle is a vegan product freshly sealed in completely recyclebable amber glass bottles with metal caps, and contains no fillers or flowing agents, and is comprised only of 58 of the world’s greatest organic, wild, non-GMO and pesticide-free superfoods and herbs including extracts of:

LONGEVITY AND CELLULAR REVITALIZATION:

American and Panax Ginseng;

Pine pollen;

Shilajit;

Longevity in a Bottle in 3 sizes:

Small size bottle: 20 grams; 4 full servings

Medium size bottle: 75 grams; 15 full servings

Large size bottle: 300 grams; 60 full servings

 

The 2 teaspoon full serving (beginners start with a 1/2 teaspoon and gradually increase over a month) of this rich brown powder stirred into water, shaken into a nut milk, or blended into a smoothie (imparts a coffee-like flavor) once a day is all it takes to accelerate your health results that lead to positive transformation. I know you love to accelerate your health results and the way you feel every single day!

Longevity in a Bottle is the culmination of my ten years work in the organic food world. Listen closely, as I need YOUR help right now to get Longevity in a Bottle manufactured, labeled and sent directly to your body.

Pre-order your Longevity in a Bottle through my RocketHub project site. This is not an investment or charity. It is an exchange: funds from fans for rewards from me. It’s an All & More funding mechanism: if I don’t reach my financial goal I get to keep what I raise. But if I do reah my goal, I get access to RocketHub’s exciting opportunities.

If you help me surpass my goal of raising $56,800 (fingers crossed!), the additional funds will go to launching Longevity in a Bottle’s hot sister product:Immortal Aphrosidiac.

UPDATED TENTATIVE TIMELINE:

-August: RocketHub campaign ends; ingredients ordered; label designing starts.

-September: Label designing complete, online pre-launch campaign commenced.

-October: Longevity in a Bottle manufactured; rewards shipped to contributors; company launched.

The Bigger Picture: The immediate embrace of this business makes me believe that people are ready to uplevel their health and enjoy a richer life where they have more energy to pursue their passions and more happiness in their heart to live a life of love with their friends and family.

Seeing people of every age light up when they take my products, and transform from rags to riches with regard to their health and quality of life, makes me feel like I am doing my part to make life that much better… and to me, THAT is success!

 

To your greatest health,

Learn how to make the most aromatic, delicious crusty-outside-moist-inside warm raw bread rolls (gluten-free, grain-free) that you can serve as one of your keynote items on your holiday table!

“Don’t forget the bread rolls!”

I remember filling up on the herbed (onion and thyme) refined-wheat bread rolls as a kid. I stopped eating processed foods with all their side effects at age 18, so all my past obsessions with foods were “as a kid!” Now it’s time to kick-start the holiday season (mine and yours) with kick-butt nutrition that satisfies your stomach’s heart, your nostalgic tastes, and your body’s many nutritional needs for Superfood nutrition. There will be NO post-dinner zombies this year, only the energized serene feeling that uncompromised-quality superfoods like my Ultimate Holiday Thyme Bread Rolls.

  Ultimate Bread Rolls

Ultimate Holiday Thyme Bread Rolls topped with avocado, a nutty stuffing, sprouts and generous globs of miso-mushrooms gravy!

 
Ultimate Holiday Thyme Bread Rolls Recipe

 

Feed through the top of a food processor with the shredder blade (single cut shredder blade, NOT the small holes grater blade), or slice thinly with knife:

 

2-3 medium-large onions, peeled and cut into smaller pieces.

 

Place onion shreds into large bowl.

Blend in a food processor (now with “S” metal blade) into a meal consistency:

3 cups organic sunflower seeds or organic fresh non-rancid walnuts or black walnuts if you can get them. OPTIONAL: Soak, rinse and germinate nuts/seeds ahead of time.

3/4 cup chia seed

1 tablespoon sea salt

1 clove garlic

 

Then add and blend again until dough-like:

 

1/4 cup cold-pressed olive oil

2 tablespoons fresh thyme or dried cut and sifted thyme

 

Add this batter to the bowl of onion shreds and sprinkle in:

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

2-4 teaspoons Longevity Power Longevity Spirulina

OPTIONAL: Longevity Power Maca Bliss

Mix and mash with your bare clean hands and shape into bread roll shapes of your choice and place on dehydrator trays. Dehydrate 6 hours, then turn rolls over and dehydrate another 4-12 hours. Dehrate longer if you want crispy rolls, shorter if you want extra moist rolls. Serve warm from the dehydrator. Have the Best Holiday Season Ever!

It’s *Unleashed* – the “How to Make Superfoods Work for You” presentation, with my Bethanne, at Cafe Gratitude – thanks to the wonderful Shea Lynn Baird and Stephen Barlow.

If you would like to enjoy the All Access Pass so that you can continue to review this video and other Monday Night Live! @ Cafe Gratitude educational presentations and videos, CLICK HERE.

In our 90 minute presentation we demonstrated how to make 2 of our favorite Superfood Beauty Elixirs:

Ginger Orange Soda Pop

Ginger Orange Soda Pop

This drink glistens with its enticing ginger-orange flavor, and calls to you with its friendly bacteria content!

2 cups coconut water kefir

1 cup spring water ice cubes

1/2 teaspoon NOW brand organic stevia extract powder

1/8 teaspoon sea salt

1/8 teaspoon fresh ginger

5 drops organic orange extract liquid

OPTIONAL: 2 teaspoons fresh Aloe Vera inner gel

Blend on high in a high-speed blender for 15 seconds and strain through a nut mylk bag to remove the ginger bits, into a medium-sized bowl. Transfer from the bowl into glassware of choice. May your day sparkle with magnificent health!

Cherry Bright

This is the ultra refreshing, Superhero version of the lemon-lime-cherry flavored soda you might remember as a kid. Fully loaded with vitamin C and MSM; extra light and crisp.

5 cups spring water

1 1/2 cups spring water ice cubes

1 tablespoon acerola cherry powder

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 teaspoon MSM powder

1 teaspoon NOW brand organic stevia extract powder

1/4 teaspoon sea salt 3 drops organic orange extract liquid

OPTIONAL: 1/4 teaspoon goji berry extract powder

Blend in a high-speed blender on high, let foam dissolve for 3 minutes, then serve in glass. Quench your thirst for liquid nutrition that makes your soul smile!

You’ll notice that the larger natural food stores these days will have a whole section just for kale chips as big as the rest of the raw food section! This snack/dinner item is healthfully addictive, but unlike potato and corn chips, it is bursting with minerals without the carbs and congestive cooked oils. Now you can make yours at home fresh, the Mexican-style hot pepper way!

Take 4 large bunches of kale (Farmers Market or garden grown is best) and de-stem each leaf: hold the lower stem with one hand, take your other hand and pull out to the tip, stripping the leaf from the fibrous stem. Shred the leaves with your hands and place in a large bowl. If you don’t want to compost the stems, chop or dice them up and mix into fresh guacamole: this will make the guacamole take longer to be gobbled up! Fact: Guacamole is always eaten up faster than any other dish at a raw food potluck…at least until these kale chips came along!

Freshly dried handful of Secret Hot Pepper Kale Chips

Place the following in a high-speed blender:

2 Cups spring water
1 1/2 Cup sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, or sesame seeds or combination of all three, soaked
1 Cup hemp seeds
1/2 Cup cold-pressed organic olive oil
5 Brazil nuts, soaked
Juice of 3 to 4 limes (or lemons, but limes really hit the spot with raw Mexican fair)
1/2 medium-sized heirloom tomato
1/2 medium-sized sweet bell pepper
2 medium-sized garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 teaspoon dried chipotle or cayenne
1/4 teaspoon dried jalepeno (or 1/2 teaspoon fresh)
1/4 teaspoon cumin seed
1 pinch dried habanero (careful not to get this under your fingernails)
OPTIONAL: 3 Tablespoons fresh aloe vera inner gel

Blend on high until creamy, then add:

1/2 bunch cilantro, de-stemmed
OPTIONAL: 2 teaspoons of your choice of medicinal mushrooms extract powders (reishi, cordyceps, chaga, etc)

Blend lightly, keeping the cilantro in tiny bits, but not turning the batter into a homogenous green. Pour into the bowl of kale and sprinkle on:

3 Tablespoons spirulina powder

Mix together with your bare hands, coating every kale leaf. Spread thinly on dehydrator trays with sheets and dehydrate at 120*F or less for 24 to 48 hours. Eat by itself or serve with a Mexican dinner containing other highly mineralized dishes:

Mexican Fiesta Week pt. 1: RawFried Beans (Bean-free Mock Refried Pinto Bean Recipe)

Mexican Fiesta Week pt. 2: White Nacho Cheeze! (Dairy-free!)

Mexican Fiesta Week pt. 3: Spicy Meat-free Ground Beef

Addictive Spirulina Guacamole

P.S. Like superfood-containing recipes? Then you’ll LOVE my new eBook “Superfood Beauty Elixirs: Mouth-watering liquid nutrition for immunity, weight loss and longevity in 5 minutes flat!”

So far, my Mexican Fiesta Week has included the following raw, nutrient dense items:

White Nacho Cheeze

RawFried Beans

and the Edible Goddess’ Addictive Spirulina Guacamole

Now we need the “meat” in my Spicy Meat-Free Ground Beef recipe:

2 Cups Pumpkin Seeds, soaked 1 to 24 hours

1 Tablespoon hemp seeds

1 Tablespoon Unpasturized Miso of choice (Chickpea Miso in glass is the best!)

2 teaspoons medicinal mushrooms extract powder (your choice: shitake, reishi, chaga, etc)

1 teaspoon Cumin Seed or Dried Chipotle

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 medium-sized Garlic Clove, peeled

Blend in a food processor until somewhat creamy and sticky. Then add:

1/4 Cup heirloom tomato, sliced

1/4 Cup Sweet Pepper, sliced

Blend lightly, having the tomato and pepper remain in small chunks.

Serve on salad, with organic vegetables, and/or with these:

Mexican Fiesta Week pt. 1: RawFried Beans (Bean-free Mock Refried Pinto Bean Recipe)

Mexican Fiesta Week pt. 2: White Nacho Cheeze! (Dairy-free!)

Mexican Fiesta Week pt. 4 (final part): Secret Hot Pepper Kale Chips!

Addictive Spirulina Guacamole
