Christian Bates is a Superfood Eco Lifestyle expert and Raw Gourmet chef-formulator-herbalist.
“I love showing people in detail how to add in my leading edge superfood superhero lifestyle practices and then on top of that delivering to people projects like the WildBar.” -Christian
For eight years – his entire adult life – he has been studying, living and teaching only the leading edge raw and superfood health practices. He has never accepted “last year’s” methods. He has always known that there is always a next step up in health practices and health results, and that there is always a solution if one’s health is in trouble.
Christian was born and raised in Marin county, CA. Before dabbling into raw foods, Christian went through public high school. He started at Tam High 50 pounds overweight and one of the shortest boys in his class. However by his junior year, he had lost 50 pounds in six months by “eating less of my San Francisco sourdough bread addiction and biking every weekend.” He then got very depressed and lost the will to deal with high school expectations and stress, and for many long moments, lost the will to live.
However, by senior year, he had begun to add in yoga, his first herb ginseng, an assortment of green superfood powders, and a mostly organic vegan diet into his life and began to find his passion for living again. He began to discover himself and his mission to the world. He went organic raw by Easter 2003 and made carob Easter eggs (this was before raw chocolate went on the market.)
He then traveled to Olympia, WA to spend four years at the Evergreen State College, and earned a BA in raw food nutrition. In that time and the 3 years after, he has catered for Raw Food and Permaculture retreats and conferences with the talents David Wolfe, Woody Harrelson, Bruce Horowitz, Daniel Vitalis, Laura Fox, Sean Lee Gardner, Gabrielle Brick, Truth Calkins, and many others who share his success with eating high quality superfoods all day long.
Christian Bates partnered with Yogi Suzi and Ancient Sun to create the infamous WildBar, a superfood cacao bar that has been on natural food stores’ shelves nationally for four years. “The WildBar is exactly what I like to teach people, how to eat and live in a way that is both completely delicious, really fun and densely healthful!”
Christian is now going full force as an exciting speaker, cacao party host, superfood nutrition coach, and a highly followed internet author. Keep up with him as he lays out…
“the most uncompromised, highest quality, results-driven, outrageously fun raw food lifestyle education ever” –Christian
