    yay, Frederic. congratulations on a job well done!

  2. Viveca says:

    Looks delicious! I can’t wait for the dvd. Your video made me hungry. I’m ready for more LOW FAT raw vegan food.

  3. Barb Peterson says:

    Your salad looked wonderful – I didn’t hear anything that you were saying but I could see the pictures. I would love to win your DVD’s. Money is almost impossible at our house with layoffs so I love all the free information.

  4. Jaia Lee says:

    This looks great~ something I will be able to refer people to when they ask me ‘how to?’ and are several states away~~ thank you for creating this, Jaia

  5. Mary Jo Jaeger says:

    Oh my goodness. I can hardly contain myself from watching this mouthwatering presentation. Everything looks beyond yummy and so appealing that you can’t wait to try it not to mention the eye opening experience of being able to watch in living color what the elements of a healthy diet can consist of and how to prepare good meals in the right combinations of food combining. Looking so forward to this DVD series.

  6. Susan says:

    I am so excited about your new DVD. The recipes look absolutely delicious and low fat. Exactly what I’m looking for.

  7. Martina says:

    WOW! I can’t wait to get your DVD!!!
    Thank you for all that great info on raw foods. 🙂

  8. Hello!! I am so excited that you have decided to make videos….. one of my challenges has been going from recipe to reality I would find it so helpful to be able to see you make the recipes and then I can follow… I am a visual learner so this is awesome. Wishing you the absolute best!!

  9. Courtney says:

    Just wanted to see, Frederic, that you really glow on low-fat raw vegan in a way you didn’t before. Congratulations on what looks like an awesome product!!

  10. Linda says:

    Hi Fred,
    I just recently joined your website because I’ve been incorporating more raw foods into my daily life and I could benefit from your wisdom. Your video is quite informative for us newbies! Thanks for making it easier for us!

  11. Cherie says:

    Judging from the brief youtube video, your recipes look fabulous and easy to make. I’ve made several raw recipes that are very good and a few that were just awful (from other sources, not yours). It’s difficult knowing which are really going to taste good until I actually make them, but then I’ve often wasted a lot of money and time in the process if they turn out to be less than expected. I would like to have recipes that are not only visually appealing, but also taste great and appeal to old and young alike.

  12. Figen says:

    Yummy!Wish you were in my kitchen:)

  13. Luke Mckeown says:

    WOW! The food looks awesome- this is just what i need to make sure i can stick with doug grahams program easy and effortlessly. I really have no clue how to make raw food cuisine and just end up having fruit for breakfast and lunch and a boring green smoothie for dinner. This would help me soooooo much! Thanks Fred ur an inspiration 🙂

  14. Leticia Rodriguez says:

    This is amazing!! I can’t wait for this series.

  15. Debra says:

    Hi Frederic,

    I think this is just what some of us need to motivate and inspire us. The preview makes me hungry and excited to try some new recipes. I only buy recipe books with pictures and this is even better!!

    Wishing you well with this project.

  16. Mary says:

    Hi Fred,

    This series is going to be a “must have” for me! You make it very easy and I have much to learn.

    You are quite handsome in action there too. Thanks for keeping in touch with me!


  17. Annie says:

    I would be more interested if you gave us an actual preview of the video. I would like to hear maybe one recipe to see how the quality of the production is and if the food sounds good. The pictures look good so far but that can be misleading and the how tight money is I am less likely to purchase something I am not sure about.

  18. Rayna says:

    i am super excited about your DVDs!! thank you for your contributions to the raw movement!

  19. Alexander says:

    Seeing in action is far better than just reading,
    Man I’m drooling 🙂

  20. Dino says:

    The need for more visual aids or very much needed, I cannot wait until you have the DVD’s available. Good luck and God Speed

    Dino from Montreal Canada

  21. Dália says:

    As i work teaching about vegetarian food in social project in my country (Brasil)
    i wiil love to achieve your knowledge to spread it to my students.
    Mostly comes from poor comunities of my city (Petrópolis).
    Thank you very much for sharing !

  22. Ellen McCurdy says:

    Hi Fred, This is a great idea. Nothing can beat the visual presentation of how to create these raw low fat dishes. They all look great and easy to prepare with some basic tools. I look forward to the DVD. Ellen

  23. Louella Hansen says:

    Boy, you know how to make a person want to try something new. Your video looks fabulous. I definitely will be in line when they are available.

  24. Gloria says:

    Aloha Fred (no, I’m not in Hawaii even though I wish I was)
    I’m so excited and enjoy watching your DVD, I’d like to see you make an appearance on the Food Channel Network. Keep up the good work and continue to teach us to eat healthy.

  25. Belinda says:

    Bravo, Frederic! Beautiful job. I am thrilled to be able to see recipe demos for LOW-FAT recipes. Most of the ones I’ve seen are chock full of nuts (everything seems cashew based), and I’m chosing a low fat vegan diet. Congrats on a great product!

  26. Hey Frederic!!

    I cannot tell you how excited I am to have these DVD’s out! I have been an 80/10/10er for almost 4 years now, and no one has ever taken initiative to put these together! I wish you great success with them (and you already have it!) I want to win these DVD’s so that I can sell them on our raw food co-op website in Houston! Either way, I want to have them up there! I hope to see you at HF week or at one of Dr. D’s events soon!



  27. Ian says:

    Wow, Fred, everyone’s kissing your arse big time ! They obviously don’t believe you’re going to select at random. 🙂

  28. Marta - Rawvolta says:

    Hi, Frederic!

    Can you please tell me, what software are you using for editing these videos ? Is it mac a swell ?
    Awesome to hear about the series! Can’t wait to see them!
    Marta Rawvolta

  29. LovesRaw says:

    I was getting recipe ideas just by watching the demo alone. I am so looking forward to the DVD which I plan to buy anyway for myself, or if I win the contest, for my relatives who could benefit so much from this!!

  30. Frank says:

    The clip really makes me want the DVD. I have seen lots of stuff about raw food but not much in the way of recipes

  31. blueberry says:

    i hope i win it 🙂

  32. Linda says:

    Looking good! Can’t wait to see the whole thing. (Now I’m hungry!)

  33. Emilio Montemayor says:

    Fred, it’s amazing what you have done. I hope we have a chance to share this top quality materials with our friends to keep inspiring healthful living.

    Keep up the good work

  34. Mildred Jones says:

    Hi Frederic,

    You are amazing !!!

    I just want to take this opportunity again to tell you that I very much appreciate your candor with regards to sharing about yourself in your writings to let others know of your struggles and way of life on the raw food diet. I have personally learned so much from you over the years and have incorporated quite a few of your recipes to my food regimine and I’m happy to have the freedom of following recipes but also creating my own through your encouragement. Smoothies are delicious and I have tried several of your combinations with fruits and green vegetables which I would never just ordinarily try.

    I’m proud of your continued success and thanks for being a special part of my life and the lives of others.

    Keep on keeping on !!!


  35. Pauline says:

    Low fat cuisine, now that’s a new concept. Definately the way to stay healthy on raw foods. Love the preview!

  36. Zeda says:


    You are very inspiring I’ve received your emails for almost a year and recently decided to go raw and I love it. I have lost 7lbs the first week and confident I will lose many more pounds. I would like to have your feedback on nuts I seem to consume quite a bit, what low fat raw vegan item can I replace for nuts.

    Raw Food Newbie

  37. Yana says:

    Absolutely beautiful!!! You and the recipes!!!! Cannot wait to try them all and to keep on getting healthier with you and your guidance!!!!

  39. MARINE says:

    Oh My! The food looks so mouthwatering to me being pregnant and all! I cannot wait to try your new recipes and shed some of the unwanted baby weight I have gained during the pregnancy. Raw food is best for me and my baby, too!

    Thank you for all the insight on raw food and nutrition! You are the BEST Fred!

    Thanks a whole bunch 🙂

  40. The food looks delicious and I am impressed with the quality of the video! Can’t wait to learn tricks of raw food prep to increase the percentage of raw food in my diet!

  41. michelle de la vega says:

    DVD’s are a great idea. The youtube preview is great.

  42. Holly says:

    Pick me! Pick me! (How was that for straight to the point? 😉 The video looks awesome.

  43. Karl Keene says:

    Oh yeah, by the way – I didn’t want to forget to say that the sushi is excellent!

  44. Carissa says:

    This would help get me back on track. I’ve definitely fallen off the wagon and am trying to figure out how to get and stay on!

  47. Osha Lamoke says:

    How wonderful to see the creative process!

  48. Jennifer Forster says:

    Oh My Goodness, What a Great Looking upcoming DVD! I am Really Really Really Looking forward to this. Since, going Raw a little over a year ago, I have naturally gravitated to more natural eating such as your Low-Fat Raw-Vegan Diet. I started out eating TONS and yes, I mean TONS of NUTS! Now, I am really realizing through your Help and the Initial Spring Cleanse we did how much better I feel on a low fat raw vegan diet. I am so Incredibly grateful that I found you and your website. You are helping me Tremendously! When I can afford to I want to get your starter kit but, will probably get this DVD first! 🙂 Because, I am really starting to have fun “UnCooking”. My hubby calls me a “Mad Scientist” in the kitchen because, I”m trying to make things up so, I really can’t wait for some help with your DVD’s. 🙂

    Thank You So Much,

  49. Natasa says:

    Though your recipes look very good, they can not be compared to a just plain ripe mango when you are really hungry.
    But, still your DVDs would be very useful to make some recipes for my child and a husband.

    Congratulations on your work!!! When I was searching for the right diet when I was in problems, I found first your Web page, and this led me to the idea of the 80/10/10 diet of Douglas Graham. Thank you both of you for getting me back on the right track with my diet.


  50. Sharyl Terhaar says:

    Very colorful- you make the food look soooooo wonderful. I am a pretty boring eater, eat the same things becaus eI know how to do it. Thanks for all you do for us Sharyl

  51. Nan says:

    Looks like a winner frederic! I’m sure your DVDs will be very helpful and inspiring to everyone interested in raw.

  52. Ayesha says:

    The DVD looks great! I look forward to seeing them in full and learning by watching.

    All the best!

  53. kaylynn levene says:

    I can’t wait to see more of the raw vegan cuisine.

  54. John Newell says:

    Looks pretty good to me. Just imagine what the Ministry of Health would have to say about this!

  55. Linda says:

    I am looking forward to your upcoming share videos. I like being able to see who’s talking to me. There is a certain comfort that comes through. You can see a lot of your personality, and truth in what you say. Thank you. I am looking forward to learning a lot from you.

  56. JONI says:

    WOW Frederic,

  60. mick says:

    Please advise the best way to clean the drool out of my keyboard.
    Having been raised on Italian food I GOTTA learn how to make that spaghetti!
    Been raw for over 30 days now, began on the day my great-grandson was born.
    Began my years as a great grand baby daddy 100% raw and I intend to teach
    the newest addition to our family this incredible lifestyle!
    I believe that 100% raw will give me a great shot at making it to his wedding!
    Of course the DVDs will help!
    Thanks for inspiration Frederic!

  61. Linda says:

    Where can I get a spiral cuter like or simular to what you are using? I loved the video.

  62. Judy says:

    Awesome video! Such vivid color and quality!! Can’t wait. Thanks.

  63. marjah99 says:

    Good Job. My family and I are looking forward to the DVD’s. I would love to win them, of course; But, if not, how much is the set going for? (Forgive me if this bit of info has been made known but I’ve overlooked it.)


  64. Mary says:

    I just started reading and researching the Raw Food Lifestyle. I am interested in detoxing, getting healthy and feeling and looking great. Salads and smoothies are easy. I need help with the more advanced stuff… This looks like just the answer! Thanks

  65. Zo says:

    Just got a new food processor and I am dying to taste those recipes of yours. Books are not the same as seeing someone actually making the recipes come alive.

  66. Lois says:

    The photography is excellent and everything looks wonderful!

  67. Leatha says:

    I can’t wait to get this dvd. Fred cuts through all the raw food hype and has helped me to get healthy with his recipes!!

  74. Karin says:

    Low Fat/Raw Vegan recipes demo’d! Your preview looks wonderful; I am waiting for the completed dvd’s to become available! Thank you!

  75. Frederick, your preview video looks great. You have my interest.

  76. Jocelyn K. says:

    Great preview, Frederic! Your DVD looks wonderful! You look so healthy and the recipes look soooo delicious. I’ve not given a lot of attention to a lower fat raw food diet because I thought the foods would be blah tasting and quite boring. But WOW, I have a feeling your video will prove me wrong! LOL. Congratulations on your new product!!!

  77. veganchris says:

    you look having much fun making this DVD – i will have the same fun too, and am looking forward to these low fat raw vegan meals! yummy 🙂

    thanks, you’re an inspiration!

  78. Angelique says:

    Looks yummy! I’d love this set!

  79. denise says:

    I needed a buddy in the kitchen who’d hold my hand!
    (when I’m not chopping…)

  80. Jisele Tuuri says:

    Frederick, I loved the demo video. It was great seeing such colorful and appealing dishes. I have been very interested in eating this way and I believe that your DVD’s will make it easier and a delight to explore and to experience.
    Have a beautiful day!

  81. Sheila says:

    Everything looks goood & simple. And since they are from you I know they wiil be good. Low fat raw vegan food is the best.

    Thank you Sheila

  82. Evelyn says:

    Frederic, the meals look awesome! We need more people like you preparing raw foods the low fast way. The video looks great and will be sure to attract a lot of people.

    Take care!

  83. Lionl says:

    After toying with going raw, I have decided to do it! These demos look like just the thing to use to stay on the raw food path. THX Great Job!

  84. Shelah says:


    This is REALLY impressive!! Definitely a must-have for any raw fooder, newbies and well-seasoned alike.

  85. Insconpo says:

    Congratulations Frederic! The food and desserts look delicious. I can’t wait to eat them!

  86. Baran says:

    I’m looking forward to the DVDs. Banana-coconut-blueberry cake looks delicious! Now that properly combined, easily prepared, fat free raw recipes are avaliable in visual form.

  87. Phyllis says:

    Definitely looking forward to your dvd’s! You are someone with great information, humility, and are trustworthy. That’s a lot in today’s world. I really appreciate your weekly emails, too! 🙂

  88. Tonja says:

    Looks yummy, and hopefully most of these are relatively quick to make??

  89. Denise says:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! Can’t wait to own the DVD series. Gotta go make a smoothie now!

  90. Hani says:

  93. Julie says:

    Hello Frederic!

    The video clip is fantastic! Cheers to you and your brother for an amazing job! I am totally impressed with the quality of your presentation. Great to see you in action….you are a picture of health!

    I know the support of your DVD series will bring me to the next level on my raw path :-). I look forward to going from 95% raw now to 100%!

    Thank you, Frederic!

    Yours for Health,

  94. Sara Crawford says:

    Wow! Looks great. Can’t wait until the DVD’s are out so I can try some of the delicious food you have prepared. I’m not very good at doing quick easy meals and they look like something I might be able to do. Maybe it will help me get more organized in the kitchen so that I don’t just grab something that I know isn’t good for me.

  95. RawFitness says:

    Yummy! I can not wait to get your DVD’s

  96. Josette says:

    Great Job! Cannot wait until the DVD is out. All the recipes look so tasty and easy to make! Just what I need! When is it going to be available?

  97. Kasey says:

    My mom could really use these recipes! That’s all she’s ever askin for lol…

  98. Marsha says:

    Your new DVD’s look exciting to say the least. Thank you for always providing the exact tools we need for quality healthful living. I need your latest DVD’s, for I have some fat to lose!

  99. Nancy Reed says:

    Fred, I can’t wait for these – they look like they will be awesome.

    Thanks for making them. The food looks delicious.

  100. Carmen says:

    Wow, these recipes not only look great, but they look pretty simple to make as well!
    Thanks for sharing.

  101. Denis says:

    Bravo! Des mets délicieux autant pour les yeux que pour la bouche!

  102. Christine Fink says:

    WOW! This looks like it is exactly what I need! I have been eating a raw foods diet for 3 years trying to cure the beginnings of Crohn’s disease. While I have improved dramatically, I still fight the problem. I have been noticing lately that the heavier foods seem to cause me more problems and discomfort. I believe I need a good variety of low-fat, raw recipes to further improve my health.

  103. Juan Puentes says:

    Wow! I can not wait to get your DVD 🙂

  104. kc says:

    WOW! Looks great. The dishes look way more appetizing than I thought raw food would look. Thanks for the dvd.

  105. Perry says:

    Yeah, it is exciting to see how it is prepared and how easy it is to make. Makes my mouth water just looking at the preview. Gotta go make something to eat now.

  106. This looks very professionally done. Great job Frederic

  107. Tanya says:

    Whoa ! mmmm mmmm! Looks soooo good. Colour, Diversity, Healthy, Delicious, Inspiring, Motivating and all Low Fat Raw Vegan. Well you’ve certainly done it again Mr. I’m sure these will be such a valuable addition to your already incredible legacy of raw vegan material.

    I love the motivational music

    Have a great day and Thank you.

    p.s. Now we get to see first hand how you keep yourself looking so young. 🙂

  108. Oh, Frederic. Yes, the food looks fabulous! Yes you are cute! Yes the video is nice and clear, but, OH, the editing! FANTASTIC!! The above shots, the zooms, the pans, the close ups – you sure know how to pick a videographer and editor! (I am also a director & editor). VERY IMPRESSIVE. Your food looks so lickable! And sushi too! You are bound to inspire a generation of young people, like you, with your energy and the music!! (I’m quite a bit older, obviously). So congrats!

  109. Liz says:

    Fred, it looks like you have high production values and good editing. Nice variations of shots. From what I see these seem too complicated for me. I never mix fruit with anything else. I never mix fruit and fat like coconut. I keep my combos simple. Looks like you’re catering to people who want to stay in the same paradigm as cooked food. To me the idea of going raw is to walk away from the need to create complicated dishes. I understand you’re giving people what they asked for. Good luck. Liz

    ANSWER FROM FREDERIC: Thanks for the comments. You should be aware that only a few recipes towards the end stray away from proper food combining. This is just because I wanted to present the full range of raw possibilities, including things to make on special occasions. It would be very hard to qualify most of my dishes as "complicated". A full 60% of the recipes include no fat at all!

  110. Sharon says:

    My road to raw has been mediocre at best. I get excited to add more raw, and then the busyness of life takes over my time and I drift from my best intentions. But I will keep at it. The dvd preview was amazing, everything looks absolutely Yummy!!!! As well as refreshing, nutritious and delicious, Yeah…..

  111. Monique says:

    Hello Frederic, GREAT JOB!! I once said that I don’t win anything and then I won something so it doesn’t hurt to try. You make everything look so easy, I look forward to learning more about the “how tos” of raw eating. Thanks again! Monique P

  112. nancy Sirianni says:

    This looks like a well produced series and the food looks incredible! I started eating raw 3 mos ago, but because I got bored with smoothies and salads (the extent of my raw food prep knowledge) I went off the wagon and started eating cooked again (which made my Rhuematoid arthritis rear it’s ugly head) now I am desperate to figure out this raw way of life (to avoid going on poison medicines) and learn some new things to prepare so I can stay with it this time. I’m not working due to the RA and it would be a huge blessing to receive your videos.

  113. Anna says:

    This looks amazing! Everything from the clean and simple presentation, to the fresh and sexy cuisine, is just what I needed to take my raw journey to the next level. Thank you for putting a face to the low-fat raw vegan lifestyle and helping us learn food preparation in a fun and entertaining way.
    Anna M.

  114. rawmzmartha says:

    What a show!…way to go! I was drawn in instantly! The first thing I noticed was your gorgeous kitchen! Then came the yummy food along with the music…yup! I was sucked in. I would have luved to hear you talk about your recipes and preperation.

    I really get into preperatiion, it’s such a joy to handle wonderful healthy food, and how it brings the kitchen and family to life!

    keep it up!,
    rawmzmartha! 😉

  115. jeni says:

    Oh!!!! This looks so great! I cant wait. Everything looks so yummy…It makes me want to run to the kitchen and try something new right now…I’d just be lost once I got there(: Thank you for putting it to dvd and making it low in fat. I have recently begun to feel the heaviness of the high fat foods.

  116. maggie says:

    Low fat raw definitely correct. High fat raw is just a trick for weight loss, no good for health, and very easy causing eating disorder and back to SAD eating habit.

  117. lindy says:

    It is definitely very encouraging!

  118. Isabelle says:

    Hi Frederic,
    Your DVD looks fantastic… like everything you do. I’d LOVE to win them for a very good reason: I’ve not been feeling well for a long time. I have unbalanced hormones that make my life a living HELL. I pray you make me a winner. It would do me a world of good I’m sure.

  119. Mary Caldwell says:

    Wow, Frederic! So what time is lunch?! 🙂

    I’m very excited about your new DVDs! You are filling a huge need in providing guidance on how to eat a low-fat raw vegan diet… too many nut-heavy recipes in other raw foods programs (I have tried them before and they make me ill because the fatty raw recipes are hard for me to digest)! Your recipes look amazing – beautiful, healthy, and easy-to-prepare! And may I say how radiant you look – you are a living testimony that this way of eating brings vibrant health! As a person who is currently struggling with staying raw, I am really looking forward to the release of these DVDs! I’m also trying to help my youngest son who has a severe form of autism, and I know that raw, living foods are going to make a big difference for him as well – he already *CRAVES* green smoothies… this coming from a very picky eater! He is non-verbal, but I believe he is able to sense what his body likes – I can think of no other reason why he repeatedly asks for green smoothies every day. He drinks over a quart a day on his own!

    Anyway, again, my thanks for doing this, Frederic! It would help me to win the set of DVDs, but if not, I hope to be able to afford to purchase them.

    Thanks again!


  120. Marion says:

    Congratulations Frederic on your latest initiative. I’ve learned such a lot from your website and publications and am very keen to own your latest DVDs. The preview of the DVDs promises some very inspirational and motivating viewing. Thank you so much for all you’ve given to us and I look forward to the future. Thank you again.

  121. Stacey Butler says:

    You sure make it look easy. We are more eager now than ever to see your Dvds. Thank you.

  122. alexis says:

    Yeah for a Raw Food DVD! I am new to Raw Food and have been a bit intimidated by some of the recipes I see. I have been unable to attend (or they get canceled due to lack of participants) a Raw Food Preparation demo which I think would help me tremendously. I look forward to adding this to my Raw Food resources!

  123. Nanette says:

    Frederic, your presentation looks good….just wish I could hear your voice and to know exactly what you are mixing. Seeing DVD’s is a great help to see how, after being raw so long, what a mass of menu’s there are. Also interesting to see the various gadgets you are using. This makes it all more exciting.

  124. jai says:

    Aloha Fred: Inspiring preps appears easy to put together Lets get this thing on Oprah!!! ASAP!!! Your Hawaii contact “Jai”

  125. Rudy says:

    I watched the video out of curiosity with no intent of buying it, because I’m trying to be frugal these days, like most other folks. But, I have to say that some of those items looked so tempting that I’ll probably cave and buy the DVD. The nori rolls were the clincher, I think. I miss those really yummy nori rolls from my high-fat raw days.

  126. Gwynn says:

    Greetings I am with a great rawsome group in Detroit/Michigan we are looking for great easy recipes your food on the dvd looks scrumptious. I hope i win!!!! Peace Gwynn

  127. Pamela says:

    I have been on/off raw now for about 5 years. Prior to discovering raw foods, I was a total foodie and I liked to cook – and I was very good at it. My biggest challenge with raw is having recipes that are easy to prepare and that I can make off the top of my head. Your dvd looks amazing and I am definitely interested! The food looks amazing!

  128. John says:

    There are probably lots of people out there like me: I want to eat the right things for my health. I want to be a good example for others. But I don’t know enough about how to create variety in raw foods. I don’t know recipes that everyone will enjoy and that non-raw food eaters would be willing to try.

    These DVDs would be perfect for people like me. Step by step instructions for how to make great raw dishes that are great for you.


  129. Saara says:

    Everything looks fresh and delicious. Love when a man enjoys preparing food.

  130. Polina says:

    Hi Frederic,
    Today is my birthday, and i know what the best gift I can give to myself.
    Thanks a lot for your work and good luck with everything!

  131. Debbie says:

    I want to share these videos with others so they can see how easy it is to prepare raw food. They don’t seem to listen to me so maybe they will listen to you. Thanks for all you do.

  132. Julien says:

    The video looks great, very professional.
    I hope it will give me some tips and ideas to introduce appealing low fat recipes to my family or friends.
    Thanks Fred.

    P.S.: I like the shirt you’re wearing! It looks like you gonna go jogging!

  133. Olive says:

    Love it, you do it with such a look of ease. Got me sold and hope to win one also for a family member.

  134. Kate says:

    I just lost my job and just LOOKING at this food inspires me to go out, get a good job and buy my beautiful, organic produce!

    You’ve been a great inspiration to those of us with terminal illnesses. I actually feel better NOW than I used to!

  135. Sheree says:

    Looks like a great DVD set. I definitely need help in learning how to prepare raw food that looks AND tastes good!!!

  136. Porphyry says:

    Frederic: To say that I’m excited about the DVDs would be a vast understatement.. I can barely wait until they are available!! This is going to feel like the longest two weeks in my life. But my final verdict so far is that I believe you’ve demonstrated most convincingly how unnecessary cooking is, when raw vegan cuisine at its best is so simple, appetizing, and nutritious. And did I mention irresistibly enticing to look at!!! I imagine all my friends, the ones who say they’d like to go raw but still cling to their excuses, will want to own a copy.


  137. anya says:

    REAL nice!!! I honestly really want the DVDs now! Thank you so much for all that you are contributing to the world with your righteous work 😉

  138. stacey says:

    Can’t wait to see more. Thanks for releasing this preview.

  139. Tirza says:

    This looks like it is going to be a fine series. The video work is very attractive, and I like your manner. It is straightforward information, not gushy. Way to go from a fellow Canadian.

  140. Josh says:

    looks awesome…cant wait to see everything on them……..Thanks!!!

  141. Tandi says:

    Absolutely amazing video. If there is one thing the raw food movement is missing, it is information about the importance of a LOW FAT raw food diet. I gained 10 pounds in a relatively short time on a ‘regular’ raw food diet and it took me a long time to make the connection between all the nuts and oil and my weight gain. The information you provide is critical to the raw food movement and you are doing an amazing job with the information you provide. These videos will no doubt help people enjoy low fat raw vegan cuisine. Thank you for all you do.

  142. jacques lalanne says:

    eating is for the senses
    seeing is tasting allready!

  143. Marie Jocelyne says:

    Je pense que c’est une très bonne intro pour le dvd qui sera très intéressant bravo et continue je te suis dans ton cheminement

  144. Julie says:

    You’ve taken the raw food movement to a whole new level.
    It’s exciting to watch the demonstrations. I would love
    to try some of the recipes. I know I would enjoy them.

    Keep up the good work.
    You are making a healthier and happier world one person at a time.

    God bless you!!

  145. Jo Anne says:

    Awesome ! Great Job Fred !

  146. Alex says:

    Wow! This is so cool! All of your dishes look so beautiful and yummy, its inspiring! I would LOVE to win this, but even if I dont I will have to scrounge up enough $ (College student, haha) to get it anyway. Looks amazing.

  147. Ecocentric says:

    I shouldn’t have watched this video while I’m soooo hungry! I can’t wait to watch & learn! Thanks for putting together such a great resource for low-fat raw vegans 🙂

  148. Ella T. B. says:

    this all looks so delicious! man i could really go for a young coconut right now! whew! 🙂

  149. Susan Rehmeier says:

    I am interested in seeing more of this dvd.. I am a big raw vegan enthusiast…just starting out but very excited to get more into it…

    The DVD definitely looks interesting so far from the footage you show here in the you tube video..

  150. Gergana says:

    Hi, thanks for your work!

  151. Catherine says:

    Very appealing video, Fred. Now I’m getting really impatient for those DVDs to come out!

  152. Nikki says:

    Yeahhh – so very exciting to see you preparing ‘food as nature intended’ – this DVD series will be a huge success for you Frederic & everyone that opens their heart to see it for themselves. I can’t wait to make my green smoothie for breakfast – such an inspiring preview…thank you for sharing it with us xx

  153. David F says:

    Recipes look very good! I can’t for the DVDs to come out to try these healthy and yummy recipes. I already told my wife this is what I want for Father’s Day!!! Thanks for all the hard work Fred.

  154. Alyssa says:

    Yum! those look delicious. Thanks for all the emails by the way!

  155. Glenda M Maduro says:

    Your dreams will come true Frederick,thanks for sharing.
    Know in your heart,that you do the job you’ve set out to do.
    God bless you,from Glenda Maduro,Aruba……..

  156. Donna Catron says:

    This is sooooo awsome. I would love to win your DVD! I love the way you split up the picture with a close up of how you are preparing the food. Everything looks so wonderful. I know this is going to be a huge success.

  157. Ken says:

    It’s exciting to think about learning the prep of each individual ingredient and seeing some of the kitchen gadgets in use. Changing from SAD to raw vegan is as much about pleasing our eyes as pleasing our palates, and seeing some of the final touches can really make the difference in a dish’s appearance. Thanks!

  158. Kymmi says:

    Hello Fred, the video looks awesome, and the food looks delicious. I am so excited to see low fat recipes without so many nuts. Cant wait to try them. Great work!! –
    God Bless,


  159. toni says:

    Frederic you are adorable! And what an inspiration you have been to me during my raw food experience. You have guided me with knowledge and vision. I am really excited about your new DVD series. I am looking forward to learning how to prepare my raw food meals with visual appeal and wholesome goodness. I want to share my rawsome lifestyle with everyone I come in contact with. What a wonderful way of life! Thank you!

  160. Michel says:

    T’es le meilleur Fred!

  161. shiba says:

    Wow! looks so delicious. I was so thrilled by the variety of menu!

  162. diana says:

    I am ready to give up on raw vegan eating because I don’t know
    how or what to eat. The raw un-cookbooks I’ve purchased haven’t
    helped me understand a total approach to this type of eating.
    Thank you for producing these DVD’s, which I suppose will employ
    your refreshing, no-nonsense approach.

    Pick me! 😀

  163. Helen says:

    How soon will this be available? I sure wish I had it to make something special for this weekend!

  164. Liz says:

    Fred, that’s good to know. Thanks for your response. I would be interested in learning what recipes help clear mucus and toxins from a congested system.

  165. Freya Hunter says:

    This is fantastic, long awaited preview of what you can achieve with RAW!

    Thanks for all the great work Fred!

    From down under – Freya

  166. mel says:

    yummo…..a visual delight. My mouth just started going into salivation hyperdrive…I need more ;0

  167. wendy says:

    It looks great! Food looks delicious!
    Thank you so much!

  168. Jennet says:

    WOW!! The DVD looks awesome–can’t wait to try everything so I can add more RAW to my life. I’m officially drooling!!

  169. Silvia says:

    What a nice surprise! Of course I will buy your DVDs, I really need them, it is not the same to prepare a recipe of a book that if you can see how it is the complete process. Regards from Mexico.

  170. Laurie R says:

    Just what I have been looking for. One way or the other I will be obtaing these dvds

  171. Lena says:

    I like the small portion of the dvd that is shown here. I need to find more recipies as I am struggling with finding new ones that look and taste good.

  172. Claire says:

    Dear Fred,

    The previews of your DVDs is wonderful: the colors of the ingredients, the simplicity of the recipes and its manipulations touches the viewer with what seems to be a nice variety of recipes.

    I like to be able to play with food, try not to be too drastic about combinations and prefer to experience what my body respond well and great with my intake of food.

    Creativity is also a must «in cuisine» be it raw or not. The hard part for me is salad sauces: when I try a new recipes and don’t like it, I leave the book aside for a long period of time before trying another one. So having recipes that offer the possibility for the fat to be removed gradually or replaced by something very good and still be tasty are the ones that I prefer.

    As for DVD, I like the idea but would test only one (like the recipes) before buying more. The first important element is there: it looks professionnal in its execution.

    Wish you success !!

  173. Lori says:

    Hi Fred,
    I am so excited about this DVD series! In the last 9 months I have seriously started eating the way you teach after being all raw since 2001- what a difference in my health after eating the low fat/raw vegan versus high fat/raw vegan!! I love your book “Raw Secrets”! It has been an answer to my prayers finding your info- you have been such a blessing to me and many others as I am a Hallelujah Diet Health Minister and are now teaching alot of your views on raw veganism! These DVDs will be a great asset to our classes as many people need these! Thanks for all your great work for all of us out here!
    Blessings to you!

  174. Kenwyn says:

  175. Marcia Walden says:

    You rock. The DVED video is a fabulous addition to the RAW movement. Thanks Marcia Walden

  176. This will be awesome to show at the raw food meet-ups here in NY. Great idea!

  177. Dusan says:

    Those meals look delecious. This DVD series could show many people how wonderful food can be in its most nutritios state.
    You’re really talented health educator. Keep up the great work!

  178. Debbie says:

    What more can I say except when will you be hosting a raw food television show? 😉

  179. Aimee says:

    Love that the recipes are low in fat. They all look absolutely delicious. Thanks Frederic!!

  180. Ashleen says:

    Wow it all looks amazing!

    Can’t wait till the DVD’s come out so I too can whip up delicious, healthy, energizing meals 🙂

    Thanks Frederic

  181. laura says:

    I have been searching for information about candida and raw foods on the web. It seems like this issue is addressed briefly at different sites and blogs. However, there seems to be a huge need in my opinion for very specific material about how to transition to the raw diet for people with candida. I would like to see a book and/or a DVD created specifically targeting this subject. I feel like the response would be enormous. I interested in your program and DVD’s but after years of struggling with chronic yeast infections and chronic throat and ear infections and trying so many different approaches for so many years. I need to be sure that something is going to work. I’ve read lots of testimonials and have your book on the way. As I’m eating more raw now- and am eating a lot of fruit- trying ot cut out oil and cut way back on natural fats now- I have symptoms of yeast infection and ear/throat infection. I need some hope.

  182. Do says:

    Your DVD’s will be a wonderful advantage for everyone! A newbee, like me, or even those who has been raw for a while, now we can all step it up to excellence. Can’t wait. Thanks for the improvement for us Fred.

  183. Chris says:

    Thanks Frederic

    Really enjoyed your Raw Foods DVD Demo. They will surely be a winner. I’m looking forward to offering them soon as a new online affiliate and raw food enthusiast.

    Best Regards, Chris

  184. Mizpah says:

    Looks delicious Fred. Hopefully this series will help more people to experience the benefits of a low fat raw diet.


  185. Patrina says:

    A very tantalizing clip of some of the variation that will be on your DVDs Frederic. I’m intrigued to see a banana berry pie among your offerings, and dare I hope that the base has only small quantities of nuts? Although I like the taste of the base commonly used in raw food recipes, I find it difficult to digest.

    Lots of luck with this new venture!


  186. Mary says:

    Yum, yum! You’ve done it again, Fred. Thanks.

  187. Linda says:

    I’m really excited about seeing your DVD’s! I’m just getting started with this way of eating and am finding that there is a lot of information out there. I think that the DVD’s will help me focus on specific dishes and form a base from which I can build.
    Thank you for taking the time to help me and others make the switch to a better and healthier way of eating! – Linda

  188. Esperanza says:

    This time I Watched the video on HD It doesn’t look as dark as I saw the first time. The recepies look easy to fallow and make. It is really hard to believe that every dish is raw. I was wondering for how long can you keep the food once it is prepare and if is ok to make a bigger bash of the recipies that appeal to you more. Thank you for all your efforts to make this journey easier and pleasurable.

  189. ginahctsun says:

    Wow thanks that was great I think this will really help many of us who need to see how its done and not just read a receipe ….or should I just speak for myself… I could def. use a dvd vegan dvd


  190. Meg Carter says:

    Frederic the food looks AMAZING in your video snippet. I feel excited to watch the series not just because of the food but because it looks like you are having fun and loving what you do. I want more of that in my life. So I am looking forward to sharing your enthusiasm and hopefully picking up some of your knowledge and skills. Meg

  191. Linda Miller says:

    The recipes look awesome. It looks like it will be an awesome DVD. I know you are on same program as Dr. Graham, and I’m impressed how healthy you look.

  192. Jennifer says:

    Hi. For some reason it seems like there is a mindfulness in your food prep, and in this video, even though I couldn’t hear your talking, etc, you weren’t rushing things, and seemed fully present. I really liked that, and I hope to see the real thing sometime. Your recipes look delicious too!

  193. Connie says:

    Looks easy and fun–lots of variety. Great to see the kitchen equipment and all the tools. Much wanted support for those wanting to make healthier choices.


  194. Casandra says:

    Frederic, you are a god-send! You’re email newsletters are already helpful enough.. but this DVD is going to be the answer to many questions that raw-foodies have.. just starting out. I believe this will be the answer to helping not only myself.. but my own mother.. convert to a raw-food, low-fat lifestyle. For me, it’s extremely important to get her on her way to proper health. I’ve stood by for years and watched her excessive smoking, eating, drinking and stressful work environments lead to her obesity, acid-reflux, acute asthma and allergies.. among other ailments.

    I’ve tried to lead by example for her. Her health means more to me than my own… though my health is very high up there! But I would have to admit my first life’s goal is to be the guidance for her.. the shining light that breaks through her emotional torment with a cooked S.A.D food/lifestyle.

    She has so much of a life ahead of her, yet! She has dreams of writing children’s books and traveling the world. Though, has NEVER left Canada. Ever. Due to her stressful job and closed-in life… which is all due to her diet! As you and I both know… your lifestyle completely changes with a Low-fat, Raw-food diet! You leave the stress and unnecessary crap behind and start to LIVE!

    She has started to see, through me, the benefit this way of life has and has started considering the switch. But I jumped straight into it.. I didn’t go through any transition. I started eating fruits, veggies and greens.. over night. She’s the slow-approach kind so I have high hopes that your DVDs will help me assist her in this slow-approach change!

    Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart!

  195. HippyChick says:

    Oooh yummilicious!

  196. Kara Wilkens says:

    mmmmm yummy!!! I’ve said it before, but again, I like how easy you make this look. Well, partly, that’s because it is easy. However, I am a very visual person, and so I learn by watching. Even when a raw food cookbook has pictures I can never quite get mine to look the same. I would appreciate having your dvd set because I feel like it has been the missing piece that I have waited for for so long.

  197. sharon says:


    Your DVD looks fresh, tasty, nutritious and most of all DOABLE! Thanks for all your tips, info and encouragement in your newsletters! Many blessings as your DVD changes lives for better health and wellness! CONGRATULATIONS on a job well done!

  198. Samantha says:

    Oh my goodness!!! This is awesome!!! I am a learner by sight…I have to see something and not just read it so this is so much better than a raw cookbook!!! I am excited for this!!!

  199. Brady says:

    I am so excited for you and for me and for all raw foodist and for everyone who just likes vegetables.

  200. reina ocasio says:

    marry me!
    I need to eat like this 24×7 and it is extremely difficult since I work out in the world where no one absolutely no one understands or un cooks like you do………
    i will follow this to the letter.
    can’t wait.

  201. Suzanne says:

    There is nothing more appealing in a meal than the beautiful colors and textures found in fresh fruits and vegetables. Seeing you prepare them–not just reading descriptive words–will be a positive force in leading people to want to enjoy the same for themselves in their own homes. They will see that it’s not as complicated as they think, nor need it be extremely time-consuming. Keep up the good work!

  202. eve says:

    Excellent variety of preps. Looks like they will be easy to learn and follow for great health results. I look forward to them learning all the different venues for healthy living.

  203. Amanda says:

    That looks AMAZING! I am hungry just watching that preview. I was *kind of* interested before, but after seeing the preview I am REALLY excited for those DVDs!

  204. Rhonda Hill says:

    Looks mouthwatering ! Looking forward to the DVDs ! Finally someone will show me how to succeed cause I’m sure by these recipes I will finally know how to expand from the basics ! Thank you

  205. Phyllis says:

    Wow! It’s really impressive. You truly know how to make raw food preparation both appealing and manageable.

    It’s a joy to watch you.

  206. Anita says:

    Looking forward to mastering these great looking recipes for my family to enjoy…
    Hope they take less time to prepare than the cooked foods they often want to eat. I’m hoping they’ll enjoy eating raw recipes so much, they’ll ASK me to replace their cooked favorites with the recipes you show on your DVD!

  207. Robert says:

    Looking forward to finding practical ways to implement the 80-10-10 diet


  208. Michele says:

    Yup. I want to know how to make the purple dressing!

  209. June says:

    Livingfoods Assisting A Living Being, Naturalicious!!!

  210. Sarah says:

    My lack of resources like this DVD is what keeps me from eating vegan, and raw, more often! I’d love to have the information in this form!

  211. Lori C says:

    Fabulous Job !

  212. Ernie says:

    this is exactly what i’ve been looking for. can’t wait !


  213. Rashnu says:

    I think this might turn on many non raw foodists to raw food. I’m gonna show it to my family members and lend it to some friends that are suffering from various health problems. I also hope that my wife and children will get turned on and start to prepare those recipes you show.

  214. Hilary says:

    Thanks for your emails. They always pump me up and keep me on the raw track…this new DVD will take me to the next level of culinary delight..just the solution to save me from potential raw food boredom. You are my hero!!

  215. Margaret says:

    Extremely well done, Fred! Very professional – you are a gifted educator and you have a flair for creativity – you make it look so effortless and efficient. I’m sure theses DVDs will make a huge difference to us who are struggling to find easily prepared dishes that look and taste delicious AND be appealing to our non- raw friends and family.

  216. Emily says:

    Wow! i have been following you through your ezine etc for more than a year, but before watching your preview i actually didn’t know how many raw dishes can be made to simulate non-raw dishes! Yum!
    Keep up the great work! I hope one day i can be as healthy as you!

  217. Katha says:

    Your DVD demo looks very good as well as yourself…picture of health. The food looks scrumptious,and very colorful. I am looking foreward to the DVD’s release.
    Thank you Frederic and good luck.

  218. Millicent says:

    Great DVD & I saw some recipes that I’m ready to try, you have not mention
    how much the the Low-Fat Raw Vegan Cuisine DVD will cost, I hope it reasonably,
    cause I already saving for it.

    Again Congratulations!!!!!

  219. Crystal says:

    Wow Fred, way to get a million comments on your video! I joined your website years ago and have appreciated watching you transform (and transform with you!) over the years. Thanks for all the good work you do and can’t wait for those DVD’s!

  220. Ana says:

    Looks like a fantastic DVD! would it be available in Europe? : )

  221. Noelle Michaels says:

    Thank you so much for putting together this awesome collection! So many people are telling me the life-changing effects that their raw-food diets are causing in their lives. Terrible medical conditions are being reversed! Your DVDs should be in every household as a comprehensive tool for improving the health of our earth’s citizens. Excellent job!

  222. Patricia says:

    Frederic, Thank you so much for you contribution this world as well as the raw food world. I look forward to your dvd’s. Perfect gifts to give to our loved ones who think raw food is “too difficult”.
    I am putting together a documentary starting the end of June and would love to talk to your people about it. It will be for sale on multiple raw websites.

  223. Iulian says:

    I can’t believe my eyes that most of the recipes look so delicious and gourmet that you can actually pass the “girl” test!

  224. Terry says:

    Looks professionally done. My diet is so bland even though I try to eat mostly raw. These DVD’s would make a great addition to my learning new raw foods.

  225. Marilyn Golden says:

    Wow! My first reaction was – Now I have Fred in my kitchen, especially after a long work day! The preparation looks so easy, so quick, colourful and delicious, my mouth is watering, I can almost taste the clear,colourful, flavours and attractive food prepared by Fred.I am inspired!

  226. Sue Heart says:

    Wow! What a wonderful display. I love eating raw and deeply appreciate the research you’ve done to save me the effort. Low fat raw is definitely for me; simple gourmet…bring it on! Sincere thanks for the work that you do.

  227. Sandy says:

    Hi Fred How exciting – there may be hope at last of reaching my raw goal. I love your books but still don’t seem to get to grips with it all properly. I have always found cookbooks with pictures easier. Now your video will be far more inspirational than any full-colour cookery book. It just brings it all to life and will make it seem much more do-able and achievable. The dishes look amazing and so appetising. What a wonderful step forward in your raw teaching. Congratulations and I hope there will be more videos soon. Thank you for all your help in my raw jouney and putting me on the right track to beating diabetes. I would never have been able to attempt it without you. I instinctively felt the raw gourmet way I discovered first off was not a healthy way to go and was far too time and energy consuming for my lifestyle. Grateful thanks and all best wishes. Sandy
    PS You look so good as well as the food. What a wonderful advert you are for the low fat high fruit raw way

  228. Linda J. Boatright says:

    Looks great and easy to do. I know with these DVD’S you will help a lot of people see how easy it is to go raw.
    Thanks for all that you do and for the time you put into this.

  229. Gunda Chapman says:


    The preview looks real good. It’s more of exactly what I need to keep me motivated to stay raw, you make it look appetizing, fun and cool! Thanks for all your support, you are a cornerstone for me on the raw food path.

    G Chapman

  230. Minister Patricia says:

    Mr. Patenaude,
    You are your own unique trailblazer in the living on live foods/raw food movement. Thanks for being a blessings. I loook forward to integrating your DVD series into my own holistic wellness ministry.

    May peace and blessings abound, always, and in all ways..

    Minister Patricia

  231. Fiona says:

    Hi Frederic

    Wow!! The food looks really yummy!! I can’t wait for the DVD’s to come out. I am still new at the raw vegan food and have not yet gone 100% raw, but I am so glad I found your site and ordered your raw starter kit. I have suffered from esophageal reflux disease for 15 years and was on medication to control it. I was told that I would have to take this medication for the rest of my life. One of the side effects of this medication is liver problems with long term use. Since I have changed my diet and am eating about 75-80% raw I no longer have to take the medication and only get the terrible heartburn once in a while. All this in only a few short months! Thank you so much for all the information and the research you do. Keep up the great work.

  232. Ghislaine says:

    Je lis régulièrement vos commentaires et opinions et cette approche de la cuisine vivante m’intéresse vivement. J’ai pu voir que vous avez un bagage de connaissances et de compétences en la matière… et que vous poursuivez continuellement votre recherche pour une meilleure alimentation, meilleure santé. Bravo ! Votre DVD est sûrement un produit de ce que vous avez de meilleur à transmettre pour nos papilles gustatives. Continuez à éclairer notre lanterne dans ce domaine qui n’est pas si simple pour les néophytes.

  233. Robin from Montreal says:

    Out of all of the raw foodist that promote the diet I believe you are the one that is keeping it real. Love your books, I’m sure I’ll love your DVD’s 🙂

  234. Yanira says:


  235. Sandra says:

    Thank you for promoting a healthy and vibrant lifestyle.
    Please urge people to eat local organic food whenever possible.
    Keep up the good work!


  236. Marta I G O says:

    Hi Frederic! Congratulations again for the new DVDS and all your work for the raw vegan health! I have already learn a lot from you and I am looking forward to actually seeing you doing this delicious raw recipes! Marta, from São Paulo, Brazil.

  237. Earth says:

    Frederic, you look really great in the DVD. The food are combined with different color and the music is good too.

  238. Anita says:

    I love the variety without having to go the high-fat “gourmet” route. Anyone who says you shouldn’t eat too much fruit, obviously hasn’t seen you. You glow with good health! I want that for myself.
    I’m super impressed with how many responses there are. All of these people going raw is great for the planet!

  239. Ron says:

    Looks good! Your food is more appealing than a lot of the raw food diets I’ve seen.

  240. Dana Summers says:

    So, I have been “trying” new things and have dabbled in raw food for a bit. Some things like sprouting and opening a coconut are a little intimidating to me. From what I can tell you make this look pretty easy. I have most of the kitchen gadgets now and I am experiencing outstanding benefits from the changes that I have made…thanks to your newsletters. I am looking forward to checking out your DVDs as it appears they would be very helpful to someone like me!!

  241. Katrina Rekers says:

    Hi Frederic
    My name is Katrina and my husband has just left for six months for RCMP depot and won’t be back until November. I have always been fascinated by raw food. I bought your book which i am really enjoying. I would love to have your dvd’s to help me in my new journey while my husband is away. I’m 39 years old and now looking to supercharge my health. I quit smoking a few years ago and gained some weight that i never have taken off. Please pick me. All my best Katrina

  242. Eva B. says:

    What a wonderful DVD.I can’t wait to get it.Thank you for making it.

  243. Maira Urena says:

    The dvd looks very promising, I’ll love to have it, I’m almost sure that it will help me with my day to day nutrition intake. Congratulations, well done……..

  244. Carolyn says:

    Thank you for making the DVD available to us. All your talking is very good but bottom line is we need to SEE, feel and touch. Thanks again!

  245. Brenda says:

    I am so excited to be introduced to some GREAT tasting low fat raw foods. I have been practicing a raw food diet since 2003 and still seem to struggle with maintaining and/or losing weight. I have followed many of your emails stating salt can be a culprit of what I experience.

  246. benjamin Franschman says:

    Dear Fred
    I believe the visuals of you prepairing the raw recepies really adds an extra demention to your teaching the raw low fat vegan diet it really inspires me to continue on this path, plus to see you also helps you look great and full energy you really practice what you teach , thanks for the continued help and inspiration. Ben

  247. ann says:


    Thanks so much for taking the effort to put such a DVD together. It looks like a great resource to add variety to a Low Fat Raw Vegan lifestyle. It also doesn’t look complicated at all.

    Looks yummy!!! Thanks again.

  248. Linda says:

    Hi Frederic…I must say I was disappointed in not being able to hear what you had to say as that would have made the preview better, hearing music is not what I had wanted. I am intrigued however, and hope that you give a sample preview later with being able to hear exactly what you are saying. Also the actual price of the DVD’s would be helpful as well. Of coarse like everyone else winning the set would be terrific, but everyone can not win and it would be good to hear the actual clip before purchasing. Thanks.

  249. Lois Anderson says:

    Looks like some pretty awesome dished you were creating I would love to have a free set of you DVD’s will you have printed recipes with them. Lois

  250. Amy says:

    I love all the camera angles, looks really well made. Congrats!

  251. Michael says:

    Looks great!! I can’t wait for these to come out!!

  252. Valerie Smith says:


  253. Denia says:

    This video looks sooooo great… appetising to the eyes and enriches the mind and the soul!!!!!
    Can’t wait to have mine!

  254. Erin says:

    Everything looks great! I can’t wait for it to come out!

  255. Mara says:

    I’m new to raw eating and haven’t quite made the switch totally, but I’m working on it. I think winning these DVDs would be a great help in making the transition. The recipes you prepared looked great.

  256. Leland says:

    Looks Great! You look wonderful!, the food looks amazing! High quality production, very colorful!

    I have been caught up in the high fat raw vegan diet awhile now until I realized recently from experience how much better I feel without so much fat in my diet. I’m looking forward to this DVD to help me as well as friends produce low fat meals.

  257. Armando says:

    That food look delicious!

  258. Nancy says:

    I am coming for supper! ha ha! Everything looks lovely! YUM!
    well done!

  259. Linda says:

    Everything you are making on this dvd looks fantalicious! Would love to have a copy! Good job!

  260. Melany says:

    Frederic! What a great montage! I’ll invite quite a few of my friends to view this clip. I’m so excited about your DVD, can’t wait to share it with my mom 🙂 You deserve all the success that’s coming your way, and more! Live long and prosper! 😉

  261. Marie Maybury says:

    This is very exciting! It’s so uninteresting to make recipes from a book &
    I’ve always found it easier to learn eveything from watching someone in action.
    Great idea! I’m very inspired…

    Best of Success,

  262. Bonnie Rose says:

    Hello Frederic,
    I really liked your video of you preparing raw dishes. I haven’t started eating raw because it did not seem appetizing to me, especially when I read saw the book “Raw In Ten Minutes” as all the pictures were in black and white. Not very appetizing. So I never bothered to try thinking I would not like them.

    But when I saw your video and the colorful dishes you made, I thought I could do that too and would probably wind up loving eating raw.
    I also saw how “healthy” you looked with clear bright skin and bright eyes.

    So yes, I was impressed and am willing to take a second chance at eating raw.
    And this is from a person who really likes mostly “hot” food!
    I also recently started growing an indoor garden and would be able to enjoy eating it raw if I know how to do it for myself and my family.

    I would like to find out how to purchase the video so I can also make the recipes as you did there.

    Thanks Frederic for all the “neat” and healthy things you come up with!

  263. Wow. This is incredible. The longer I am into raw, the simpler I am aiming to keep it. I’m excited about these DVDs….

    In light and love,

  264. ~Mrs. V says:

    Greetings, Mr. Patenaude,

    After opening your newsletter, I clicked on the link and just watched your preview today. What a blessing to see some of God’s provisions from His bountiful garden! ~~Those raw vegan meals on your preview really look fresh and delicious! And they look easy to prepare, too, with the right kitchen tools/appliances.

    I am curious about the kitchen tools/appliances you used on the video, such as the wood cutting board and knife, vegetable slicer/dicer, the little white prep bowls with thumb handles, and was that a Hippocrates Health Institute juicer? Perhaps if you might remember and have the time, would you be able to mention more about those on your future videos or newsletters? (if able, thank you in advance).

    Thank you kindly for posting your previous videos from your Costa Rica visit, and for deciding to finally tape your first Raw Vegan DVD series. Would you be be able to make available a recipe clip (or more) from your DVD series with you speaking, as well (as a freebie sample)? (again, if able, thank you in advance).

    May you have a blessed day,
    in Christ, ~Mrs. V

    Blessings from the Holy Bible (KJV):
    Genesis 1:29-31
    “And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat…And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.”
    Psalm 24:1
    “The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.”
    1 Corinthians 10:31
    “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.”
    James 1:17-18
    “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. Of [God’s] own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.”
    John 14:1, 6
    “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me…Jesus saith…I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
    Isaiah 55:6-7
    “Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:… return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon [you]; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.”

  265. Sydney Horner says:

    Your recipes look delicious. Can hardly wait for the DVD’s to be out so I can try some healthy items.

  266. Nicole says:

    Looks fabulous!! Wish you were my own personal chef. 🙂

  267. Sarma Ilgenfritz says:

    Thanks for the validation that my ‘green meals’ look right on! And, I can see that presentation is everything, as the various colors of the food you put together, as well as the pretty dishes – it all adds up to very appetizing meals!
    Thanks so much for your common sense approach to what we put into our bodies. Even my husband, a real meat&potatoes man, is finding it easier to try more greens because he agrees with so much of what you say! (I read everything to him!) Thanks for the difference you make in the world!

  268. Chenoa says:

    Hi Frederic. Your new recipes look amazing. I have been raw for three months now, and look forward to your emails. They are always encouraging and helpful. I am slowly turning my husband around too. When he saw you in your kitchen he asked me for a green smoothie!!! Yay. Keep up the good work.

  269. sophia says:

    Hi frederic, i don’t have speakers on my computer so i dont watch them. I have been trying to stay mostly raw for many years now, as i feel at my best when i do. I have yet to find a book or a system that does’nt leave me starving, craving or very bloated. I would love to win your set of dvd’s as i think you are on to something pretty amazing, and with an expanded recipe sellection i can stick to it alot longer than i do without repercussions
    Love and light

  270. Chris says:

    Great to see a whole series of raw vegan DVD’s. This raw vegan idea is really going place, and hopefully this will help it go more places. Keep doing good things Frederic.

  271. Sonja says:

    Hi. I already get your newsletter and your DVD series looks very interesting.

  272. Melissa Hanson says:

    YUM!!! It all looks so fantastic, Frederic! Yourself included. 🙂 I even loved your musical selection. I cannot wait to get and watch these DVD’s! You are such an inspiration to me in so many ways. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication to spreading the word about this amazing lifestyle!

  273. les says:

    i need this dvd at the moment… can’t wait..


  274. Sandra says:

    A comprehensive DVD of cooking and recipes only is what I have been looking for for along time. I have even looked into trying to find cooking schools to take lessons, but this is a very costly option. I am very excited and this really fits a need for me. It is interesting to learn that several other people feel the same way.

  275. ROLINE SAVILLE says:


    I am so excited about this video. I cannot wait to try your recipies. I am sure it is going to have a huge impact on my health. I am suffering from osteoperosis and Very high colesterol although I only weigh 55kg.

    Please consider me for this wonderful prize.

    Kind regards


  276. ROLINE SAVILLE says:


    I am so excited about this video. I cannot wait to try your recipies. I am sure it is going to have a huge impact on my health. I am suffering from osteoperosis and Very high colesterol although I only weigh 55kg. My whole family is on my diet to support me in my efforts to cut down on my cholesterol. They are all going to enjoy your recipies. All my friends will also be interested since they are all very healthy eaters like ourselves.

    Please consider me for this wonderful prize.

    Kind regards


  277. Pamela says:

    This looks amazing! I live in Norway, where Raw Food is still very rare. Every recipe you show looks like a “must eat” kind of meal.

  278. Kay Lakshmi Cruse says:

    Ahh Fred – we can thank you always for your enthusiasm; especaially if I’m feeling lomesome here in the U.K
    I miss you all..
    Thank you x
    Namaste K

  279. Adel says:

    That does look simple! It would really be perfect for busy students and working professionals. No dehydrating as well! An added bonus.

  280. Eric says:

    Just give me the DVDs 😉

  281. Emily says:

    The food and your presentation are so elegant, I was thinking that I’d love to hear some beautiful classical or modern acoustic guitar music (maybe played by you!) as background. That’s my only suggestion. Everything else is perfect–and, as a musician, I do appreciate all music. I realize that maybe more people would like the high energy stuff. Carry on!

    COMMENTS BY FREDERIC: Don’t worry, in the DVD itself you won’t hear the music played against my voice the whole time! This is just for an excerpt showing you some of the things we have in the DVD series.

  282. JaimeP says:

    Hi Frederic ~*~*~*~*
    Wow, your dishes look delicious. I think your DVDs would definitely get me excited about raw foods again!
    Pick me =)

  283. Ada Van Der Munnik says:

    Hi Frederic,

    Over time, I have tried to be a 100% raw foodist, a 100% vegetarian, or a 100% vegan, but because I like variety I have applied and created a “diet” that favours elements of all three ways of eating. But… I am convinced of the 100% benefits provided by each “diet” if it suits the individual. I have lots of your books already and read them for interest and the recipes. I am always on the lookout for new recipes that are health-beneficial, interesting, tasteful, worthy of collecting, and especially the ones that use raw, vegetarian or vegan foods, and I think that a DVD showing the right ingredients for and the actual preparation of such recipes is the better if not the only way to go to become a a complete raw foodist, be it vegetarian or vegan.

    Thank you for all your good work.

    Ada Van Der Munnik

  284. sheri says:

    yum! ^_^

  285. Scott says:

    Frederic is always on the mark and willing to step into the unknown regardless of the consequences. Check this set out once it’s available!

  286. Hollie says:

    Excellent Frederic – as someone that can create horrific meals out of great ingredients this would be perfect. My daughter will love you eternally if you rescue her from another night of mango soup (which we love but does get monotonous).


  287. Jen says:

    Awesome! Everything looks so good. Can’t wait to see the DVD!

  288. Jean says:

    My life pretty much depends on eating Raw. I appreciate you and your input. The way you explain eating Raw eliminates the complications. Thanks!


  289. Ruy says:

    Excellent, I already know that quality is what matters in health and in nutrients intake. But having a good mental position about foods is basic, heart has to be present in the eating and also in the kitchen when food is being prepare. Mind is already present, because raw food is already a so intellectual way of eating. Science has point to that fact.

    But the must of this video is: You are doing something we all lack a lot and something we are willing to pay. You are being in the moment with your food, so you are also being happy, you are being spontaneous, but the must is you are being creative and delicious (even when I’m unable to test your food, but it must be delicious because it looks like it).

    So please teach us how to be present with our food, in a happy, spontaneous, creative and delicious ways.

    Good bless you Frederic, never stop!

  290. D Maynard says:

    Wow! My mouth is watering already! Looks like a fantastic DVD 🙂

  291. Steph C says:

    Everything looks so wonderful! I can’t wait for these DVD’s! Nice upbeat music too!! I caught myself shaking my foot and drooling!! Tee Hee!

  292. lyma mack says:

    Hi frederic,

  293. lyma mack says:

    hi frederic, those recipes look very simple and delicious. I cannot wait to purchase them.

  294. Heather says:

    I couldn’t get over how cute you are!

    Oh…and the food looked wonderful, also! 😉

  295. Robert says:

    WOW, very nice to watch and great idea with the winning competition it works because youve got so many comments, rob from poland,

  296. Natalie says:


    J’ai faim. My friend was about to dig into his sandwich when he saw this preview with me. Suddenly he had a craving for your food and lost his desire to eat the sandwich! Hahaha.


  297. Daryl says:

    I have fallen off the wagon from eating raw. I’ve gained 15 pounds. I’m going through the “change” and the weight just doesn’t seem to want to come off my body. I really need some motivation to get back on track. I hope your DVD will help me see the light again.

  298. lindy says:

    Dear Sandra, there are places where finding local raw food is very hard, and it is hard to stay raw in some seasons anyway…it is a complex subjerct, I think

  299. Rae says:

    Your presentation of the raw food diet has given me hope of actually succeeding on this path, and your DVD preview looks great. I’ve attended several raw food classes, but they all feature tons of high fat ingredients that are ultimately going to cause people to give up on raw food and start eating animals again, which is abhorrent to me as an animal rights person and environmentalist. Your program is the key to creating life-long vegans all over the world!

  300. Christina says:

    Wow! I love to see a man rawing it up in the kitchen! Trailer left me wanting more. So inspiring, as are all your info and articles. Keep up the good work. Bless you.

  301. Ali Welch says:

    Wonderful videography & great, high energy music on this little tease. Food colorful and alive. HQ did make a difference. Looks like you covered quite a variety of recipes. I hope you’ll provide a teaser recipe so we can preview what we will be purchasing.
    It looks like there are others who need the free set more than I (even though I’d be thrilled to win!)so I wish everyone the best of luck at winning this instructive video.

  302. Susannah says:

    Thank you for, and congratulations on the DVDs! Thank you for all the free info, especially in this bad economy (got laid off last year). Would love to win the DVDs, because having a visual basis to understand low fat raw food preparation would be especially helpful to me!

  303. Irma says:

    Looks wonderful. Even if I don’t win, I’m sure I’ll get the DVD’s. It’s great actually seeing low fat vegan raw food being prepared. Thank you for this. Many blessings.

  304. Calvin says:

    Hi, Frederic:

    I admire your strong interest, passion and internet presence in this area. I have thought about health and wellness for quite some time (years) and am convinced that the food we put in our bodies has a major impact on our overall vitality (right up there with unresolved emotions). One of my interests is in working with youth with challenges of various types, and the topic of food is certainly one of the most challenging that I discuss with them – as you know, most people have very, very strong attachments to the food they eat and helping them to improve their diet requires some innovative approaches.

    I am excited about your new videos as they will introduce one more way to help individuals understand and integrate the knowledge they need to help themselves. Different people learn in different ways – verbally, visually and kinesthetically – and these videos will allow us to use all three learning styles. It will be great for our groups to be able to watch you (visual learning) prepare healthy food as you discuss what you are doing and why (verbal learning), and for us to be able pause the DVDs to have our own discussions as we prepare our own meals along with you (kinesthetic learning). Additionally, being able to participate in this manner will bring an element of fun to the meal preparation, which will encourage them to want to do more, as well as allowing for a sense of shared enjoyment as they share the results of their meal preparation – not to mention the meal itself – basking in the accomplishment and satisfaction of a job well done. These are huge benefits.

    In short, I have found that people do not simply need information on how to do something, they need help and encouragement in doing it. Your videos will go a long way toward this end, bringing better health and wellness to many.

    Best wishes – I look forward to both these videos and further innovations from you as time goes by.

    Calvin Hawn 🙂

  305. MomTrim says:

    This sample really whet my appetite! Can’t wait for the DVD. Great Job!!!

  306. Christa says:

    Wow, Frederic, I can’t wait to try some of these delicious recipes. I need more options. Sometimes eating mostly raw seems boring, without many options or variations. But this DVD really seems like the solution to my problem. Thanks so much for all of your contributions to the raw food movement.

  307. Helga says:

    Your examples help inspire me to continue trying to move to a raw diet, even with my failures, because you make it clear that eating is life, and all the senses are involved. It is beautiful food, presented beautifully.

  308. Pamela says:

    This is really great! Looking forward to viewing the DVD in its final format and being able to watch the demonstrations first hand. Can’t wait!!

  309. heather says:

    i have been saving and following your recipes. i especially like raw smoothies . my health is changing and i am getting better everyday. thanks for motivating me to eat raw.

  310. Sandi says:

    Federic, everything looks so wonderful and I cannot wait to experience RAW, I am just starting out and have made only one recipie that did not turn out to well. I hope that I can win one of your amazing DVD’s. Keep up the good work.

  311. Lea Joy says:

    just found your website sounds quite informative. I know nothing about the raw diet but your claims and your picture are quite impressive. I for one have always believed that we were not meant to age but have as yet not gotten a handle on it. I was not as impressed with your DVD as I was with a comment that you made about seeking above all the Truth no matter how many cherished beliefs have to be let go. I believe that we are kindred spirits in that regard. I will be reading everyone of your articles that I can for free. As I stated, I have always believed in eternal youth (see Psalm 103:5) but have not arrived. I am now reading over the ‘dummied’ down articles on quantum physics and I am finding so much information which only substantiates/clarifies what is spoken of in the Bible. Just recently I came across information about red wine and an ingredient found in it (the skin of the red grapes)that is said to have youth enhancing properties maybe that is why Jesus instructed us to have communion often.
