Connecting with Nature | Raw-Food Expert Ben Richards

Listen Now

In Episode #34, I caught up with Ben Richards, owner of Seeds of Life Cafe in Ubud, Bali, to chat about his story and what raw or ‘living’ foods are all about. It’s a three-hour episode, so a bit of a marathon one, but it’s full of golden nuggets to get you thinking about life at a deeper level, particularly why we eat what we do.  

Some highlights include Ben’s experience with plant medicines, including mushrooms and ayahuasca; what ‘raw food’ means and whether it’s for everyone; what soaking, sprouting and fermentation is and how to do it; resources to learn more about raw foods; and the question that society should be asking to get back on track and plug into nature for a truly fulfilling experience on this planet. Plus hear my reaction to trying durian fruit for the first time at the end of the episode!
