I am the mother to four children, 2 girls and 2 boys. I also have 7 grandchildren. I grew up in Hollywood California. Married at 17 and widowed at 29. I’ve been a vegetarian and vegan for the better part of 40 years. I’ve had an amazingly interesting, fantastic life. I’m a raw food chef, and I tell many stories in my book LIVE RAW and my new book LIVE RAW AROUND THE WORLD, which will be released July 2013.

Since winning the title of the “Sexiest Vegetarian over 50″, and so many people asking my secrets on health and longevity, I thought this was an opportunity to share my life and possibly help others to transition into eating a plant based raw food diet.

For those of you who don’t know about me, i was born September 23, 1938 which makes me 75. Feeling like you’re in your 20′s at 75, is quite an amazing thing. I accredit this youthful look and spirit not only to my attitude, but really to my way of eating which is a raw vegan – living foods lifestyle.

    luv your book…i am never thought about becoming a vegan but you have definitely given me something to consider…i used coconut oil last night on my face and i have to say i am more than impressed…curious about hair care….its the only thing you did not touch on in your book…



  2. Mimi, I found your book as a raw-roockie just days ago but couldn’t decide which book, among the many offered on Amazon, to get. Then a friend posted about you on Facebook today leading me to Google your site.

    This is so amazing and inspiring. Amazon will ship your book tomorrow! Can’t wait for the good time reading it and putting it to action.

    Mimi, I read your book and I was wondering whether you’d tell us about the name of your tooth soap. I haven’t found any in Germany yet. Couldn’t you put it on your amazon shopping list too?
    Thanks for lots of inspirations!

    Hello Mimi,

    My wife and myself are already longer on the veggie path but at times it is hard to maintain this lifestyle with so many people around that think that you are foolish. What we can do now is show them your website and tell them your story, many many thanks for that.
    Thanks for all the beautiful stories and recipes and your life’s story.

    A very warm thank you and obrigado from

    Joep and Teonia ( dutch and brasilian); that’s for the obrigado

  6. Dear Mimi,

    I am reading your book and I am totally in love with it.
    I adore your sense of humour and your wisdom. I admire everything you stand for and, of course, the awesome food recipes are a nice extra!

    I’ve became a vegetarian after watching the first 30minutes of Earthlings… Nowadays I am a Vegan eating 80% Raw (still love my coffee and soy milk)!!!:-) I am your biggest fan and I would love to meet you one day.

    Do you have any plans of visiting Australia any time soon? Would you like to visit Australia? Can I help in any way to facilitate you coming for a workshop or book promotion? I am available to contact people over here, make phone calls, help with promotion, whatever it takes, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
