Interview: Maranda Pleasant

World authority on raw foods, superfoods, natural healing, longevity, earthing, chocolate, and having the best day ever, David Wolfe is a renowned lecturer, acclaimed author, and one of the most sought after health and wellbeing experts touring the world today.


Maranda Pleasant: What makes you come alive?

David Wolfe: Live events and lectures in front of large audiences. It is the best. I like it more than eating dinner. I have done more live events in the past twenty years than I have eaten dinner.

MP: If you could say something to everyone on the planet, what would it be?

DW: If you change your food, you can change your life. Food is the most important influence on your health. It is even more important than your thoughts and emotions. If you eat well, you can transform your life.

MP: How do you keep your center in the middle of chaos? Do you have a daily routine?

DW: I have done this for the past twenty years, so being on the road and doing events is like getting kids ready for school for most families. My daily routine is to make every day the best day. I also have certain health disciplines. Every morning, I do my six-minute workout. I do yoga, drink smoothies, and go to the gym. I also plant trees as much as possible.

MP: What’s been one of your biggest life lessons?

DW: You have to be very careful with who you do business. It’s like a marriage. Do your research and check references.

MP: What truth do you know for sure?

DW: Here is the one truth you know for sure: there is no truth for sure. There are no laws of nature; there are habits of nature. Nature is malleable and nature learns. That’s the recent work of Rupert Sheldrake on Morphic Field. Nature learns and changes as a result of stimuli, and certain habitats of nature will be formed that weren’t there before. That’s how I look at reality.

MP: What are some big things happening with food right now?

DW: There is an enormous amount of interest in raw and organic foods, but more recently it is superfoods. People want to know more about chia seeds, mocha, raw chocolate and cocoa, and what they can do for you. The raw food wave has swept through, and now it is the superfoods wave. The next thing to happen will be super herbalism. People are going to start realizing, why take those antibiotics that are extracts of mushrooms? Why not just have the mushrooms?

MP: Do you have a favorite raw recipe you’d like to share?

DW: I love guacamole. My nickname is “Avocado.” While I was studying chocolate and cacao in Mexico, I saw them mixing cocoa nibs into guacamole. It is amazing.

• 2-3 avocados
• ½ lime, juiced
• Cilantro, diced
• Hot chili, diced (only if you like hot)
• Sea salt, 1 pinch
• Cocoa nibs, 2 sprinkles
• Spring onions, 1 handful
• Tomatoes, diced

MP: Tell us about your latest project.

DW: My recent project is writing a book, Longevity Now. It will be published this September.
