Mimi Kirk Interview - Part 1C

Mimi Kirk Interview for Eighty Percent Raw


“Eighty Percent Raw online magazine editor, Tracy Partridge-Johnson chats with 71 year young Mimi Kirk about her designation as PETA’s 2009 pick for America’s Sexiest Vegetarian Woman Over 50. Listen in as Mimi shares her secrets to youthful energy and lasting beauty!”



This video has received the most views of any videos I’ve created over the years, so I thought I’d re-post it here for all of you.

If you have followed me for any length of time you will know that I published an online magazine called Eighty Percent Raw from early 2009 until just recently, when I finally let that domain go.

When I launched it I had a vision of recruiting a team of professional raw food chefs and other healthcare advisors who would contribute content to the magazine every month. And I achieved that dream, putting together a group of more than 25 contributors who submitted recipes, articles, and reviews twice a month for four years.


I acted as the editor and publisher, and I’m also the one who created and maintained the website. I didn’t know as much about protecting my websites back then as I do now, and unfortunately, when the Eighty Percent Raw website got hacked (along with several other of my business and personal sites, which were all hosted on the same server. It was the server that got hacked, not specifically my websites) I didn’t have a backup of the site. So, I lost all of that incredible content. After that, I was so emotionally drained by the loss, that I just didn’t have the energy or enthusiasm to try to rebuild it.


Fortunately, I did upload a handful of ‘videos’…mostly just audio interviews, like this one with Mimi Kirk. I had really rudimentary tech gear back then, so my videos were of very poor quality. But this one, and a few others, remain from those initial attempts at starting a YouTube channel.

This interview with Mimi was lots of fun to conduct! I had to break it into three segments in order to upload it to the video platform. And for some reason…this third segment has received far more views/listens than the first two. But I think the information shared is valuable. So, I hope you’ll find it interesting. I’m providing links to the other two segments below, if you want to listen to this interview with the amazing Mimi Kirk in its entirety.

Review of The Good Chocolate

We decided to do this video review of The Good Chocolate because I’m an affiliate for the company. I recently received a sampling of their products, so I invited my daughter, Rachel, to join me for another video product review.


Not only do Ben and Miki, owners of the company, care about the taste of their product, they are also “committed to using the simplest ingredients found in Nature and sourcing only 100% organic ingredients to make the best & lowest calorie bean-to-bar chocolate.” Listen to their story HERE.

Their website proudly states that their product is:

  • Sugar-free
  • Very low net-carb
  • Lowest calorie chocolate
  • Vegan (excluding Dark Mylk)
  • Soy-free
  • Metabolism-friendly
  • Low glycemic index
  • Doesn’t promote tooth decay.

Our Review Flavors Include:

Signature Dark – a reliably delicious, subtly-sweet 65% dark chocolate.
55% Vegan Mylk – a little sweeter, with a creamier mouth-feel than the Signature Dark.
Salted Almond – not much of a salty-taste – but with a great distribution of small almond nuggets throughout.
Himalayan Salt – surprisingly, this was our favorite flavor for an everyday chocolate eating experience!
Dark Mint – nice, natural peppermint flavor mingling with the 65% dark chocolate. Yum!
65% Dark Ginger – we were both a little mind-blown by the delicate ginger-infused flavor of this one!
The Detox Bar Coconut & Turmeric – is astonishingly delicious with delightful notes of toasted coconut. We barely detected the turmeric.

Our Ranking

Rachel and I both give this company a strong 5-Stars, A+, Thumbs High Up score for the yummiest sugar-free chocolate we’ve tasted yet! You are definitely going to want to try some yourself!
