Alex and Milana - are healthy, vibrant demonstrations of living the raw food lifestyle. He is a professional athlete, she is a nursing mom and as a family they came to Farm of Life for a Costa Rican vacation. Alex shares about his process of being a professional ice hockey player who transitioned from a meat-based diet to vegetarianism, then veganism and eventually to raw food. He thrives physically without needing protein powders or supplements. Milana shares about eating raw vegan while pregnant and breast-feeding. One day her baby's eye's had mucous in it, after she had eaten a cooked vegan meal, and from that point forward she has been 100% raw food breast-feeding mom... and she also, intuitively, practices what is called Attachment Parenting.

We interview the Raw Brahs on the beach of Dominical, Costa Rica. They share about their experiences with raw food, how they got started and their athletic motivation to achieve peak health. They recently hosted a retreat in Costa Rica and speak of that experience too. They've been transformed by Costa Rica. Their future plans are "unplanned"!! These 3 brothers are a great team, living in the now and their love and support for one another are strong! It is always a joy to spend an afternoon with grounded and genuine raw fooders, as we did the day of filming this interview.
