Q and A Series: People, Products and the Health of Our Planet – Interview with Paul Gregg, Executive Vice President of Raw Foods International – 100% Pure Fruit & Vegetable Juices

For the thirteenth interview, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Paul Gregg, Executive Vice President of Raw Foods International: 100% Pure Fruit & Vegetable Juices

My Comments

I first found this company online and then met them at The Natural Product Expo in Anaheim during the show in March 2014. They have 9 different flavors and I have tried them all and each one is so good I really can not say one is better then the other. They are each unique and each very delicious. I did a taste test on my youtube channel. Link is below to check it out.

Question #1 Tell me briefly about yourself and why you decided to get involved in the “health” industry?

I grew up in an environment where my Mother (a Dietician) always said, “Eat your fruits and vegetables!” I try, but in today’s world that is not always easy when we are on the go so much. That’s why we do our best to get a great tasting fruit and vegetable juice blend into the hands of anyone looking for a solid beverage and I think Mom would be proud.

Question #2 What one message do you want to share with the people of this world that is crucial for their ultimate well-being and longevity?

Life is service and the sooner you learn that and apply it in your day-to-day life, the better you-and the world around you-will be.

Questions #3 If someone could afford to purchase only one product at this moment to start their journey towards better health (food or health-related), what would you recommend and why?

A pair of tennis shoes because exercising your body exercises your soul.

Question #4 Tell me more about your business/company and/or products you offer to the public to help them achieve optimal health and well-being?

Our RAAW™ Juices are designed to offer people a great beverage in and of themselves or as a snack between meals. RAAW – Refreshing Anytime AnyWhere™ was developed as a means of providing an affordable product that everyone can afford and enjoy, juices that not only taste great but are great for you. We currently have 9 unique fruit and vegetable blends that are available including: Passion Fruit Wheatgrass, Strawberry Purple Carrot, Mango Guarana, Better Beets, Pineapple Cucumber, Very Berry Wheatgrass, Raspberry Lemongrass, Cranberry Ginger and Carrot Lemonade. Each juice blend is certified Vegan, Gluten Free and Kosher, Non-GMO verified and contains no added water or sugar.

Question #5 What are your hopes/aspirations/dreams for the future health of the people and the planet?

I pray for peace and harmony and healthy nutrition for all, especially younger children and those in need.

Question #6 Who is your greatest hero and why?

My Father as he is a member of the “Greatest Generation.”

FYI: Let Food Be Thy Medicine and Medicine Be Thy Food

Topic: Let Food Be Thy Medicine and Medicine Be Thy Food (Hippocrates)

Thursday February 18, 2010

Here is another great quote from the Father of Medicine who also created the Hippocratic Oath (which in my honest opinion, has now become the “Hypocritical” Oath, as doctors do not follow his guidelines for treating people {that is what they are and not simply ‘patients’ as they are called} who are in need of medical care. Another thing that is “wrong” with the medicine in America, is that it has become sick care. There are countries in the East (I know that it used to work this way in the past and maybe it still occurs with some traditional doctors) where the doctor would not be paid if the person comes to them and is not well. Only when they are “symptom-free” did the doctor get to collect money. This makes sense to me! How about you? Please be sure to give me your feedback. For one thing, I do not ascribe to the western way of medicine a nd don’t have health insurance or see a doctor (I am not telling you to follow what I do, merely telling you the way I choose to live my life). I know that doctors can help with a diagnosis and also for emergency situations (like fixing broken bones) they can be a G-d send (as was for me when I broke my left elbow over 10 years ago). Getting back to the quote from Hippocrates, it makes perfect sense to me logically that he was a genius, even back then (he lived 400 years before J.C.)! His message is ageless and timeless! It is a shame that so many people have to go on all these diet programs like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Slimfast , etc. If they would follow the principle that Hippocrates stated in the above quote, in layman’s terms it would be: food = medicine; medicine = food. I know that the best foods to consume are mostly fruits and vegetables, preferably in their raw form. Take this into consideration and find even one fruit or vegetable that you like and would be willing to have more of it everyday and keep building on that idea. If you are an adult, think about the fruits you loved as a kid. What child did not like watermelon? How about grapes? (of course when they are in season is the best time to buy them). Next, you can try a fruit you have never eaten. If you aren’t sure you’ll like it, when you go to the supermarket, farmers market, etc ask if you can get a piece of it to try. More than likely, you will be able to do so. Do some research on the internet for exotic fruits or tropical fruits and find out about the many options that are available to you.
