Mimi Kirk is youthful, vibrant and energetic. She’s recently released a new book, she stars in a series of weekly YouTube videos and she’s frequently interviewed for TV news segments. Once you learn that she’s the mother of four and the grandmother of seven, you might wonder if she’s secretly been drinking from the fountain of youth. Then Mimi reveals her birthday: September 23, 1938 (she’ll turn 73 the week before The WE Conference) and you realize that whatever she’s been drinking, you want some of that magical elixir!

Mimi grew up in Hollywood, California. Married at 17 and widowed at 29, and responsible for bringing up her two daughters and two sons on her own, Mimi has experienced the ups and downs of life. She takes each gift in stride and finds inner peace from living in the moment and making compassionate choices that honor and respect people, animals and the planet.

Throughout her life, Mimi’s talents and interpersonal skills have transitioned her successfully through numerous jobs and careers. She had a stint as a Las Vegas showgirl, and was the stand-in for Mary Tyler Moore in the hit sitcom, The Mary Tyler Moore Show. She designed clothes and jewelry for Valerie Harper, and invented the popular scarf motif along with the “Rhoda style” for Valerie on the Rhoda television series. Her acting career put her in front of the camera for more than seventeen years.

Mimi then transitioned out of the entertainment industry to open her own national jewelry manufacturing business, Prasuti Accessories. Later, becoming passionate about personal growth, she sold her company and became the regional marketing director for a company that delivered self-improvement seminars. Interested in continuing her spiritual development, Mimi then traveled to India to study. Soon after her return, she accepted an opportunity to become the executive assistant and charity events coordinator for a private family, and served on the boards of several nonprofit organizations in Los Angeles. In 1989, Mimi took on yet another new role, founding The City Planet, an environmental newspaper based in Los Angeles and served as publisher and editor-in-chief.

Mimi launched Side Saddle, LLC in 1998 to manufacture cowgirl-themed products and developed an international market for her merchandise. She is the inventor of four board games including Cowgirls Ride The Trail of Truth, a board game for women ages 18-118. Cowgirls products include greeting cards, journals, stationery, gift bags, tags and notecards from Inner Art Sunrise (a division of Hallmark), as well as mugs, candles, T-shirts and posters. Mimi compiled hundreds of quotations from the actual women who tamed the west for her book, Cowgirl Spirit: Strong Women, Solid Friendships and Stories from the Frontier. Focusing on the power, independence and wisdom in every woman, Cowgirl Spirit features striking historical photographs, fascinating stories from the frontier and insightful remarks from women including Ma Robertson’s legendary words, “If a man had to give birth, he’d be a more considerate person.” Mimi’s games and products are available worldwide.

In 2009, Mimi was proclaimed the Sexiest Vegetarian/Vegan over 50 by PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) at the age of 71. She revealed that she had been thriving on a plant-based diet for more than 40 years. Since receiving the title, Mimi’s visibility has skyrocketed as people flock to her website and Facebook pages on a regular basis. Every day people ask her to reveal her secrets for health and longevity.

“In a word,” she says, “it’s food! What you eat really does affect your health and appearance.”

She’s been interviewed on CBS Good Morning and quoted in publications including Self, Jane, Allure, USA Today, LA Times, and The Washington Post. Mimi recently released her latest book, Live Raw: Raw Food Recipes for Good Health and Timeless Beauty. It turns out what she’s actually been drinking are fresh-squeezed organic juices and homemade green smoothies, and those delicious, nutritious concoctions she’s created are often made from the fruits and vegetables she grows in her garden.

“Feeling like you’re in your 20s at 72 is quite an amazing thing,” Mimi adds. “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.”

Mimi will share her wealth of experience at The WE Conference as one of the illustrious experts on the Nutrition for the Empowered Woman panel discussion before the luncheon, and will sign books and visit with guests during the breaks and after the event.

Gazpacho
From Mimi Kirk's Live Raw

 

You can also make this juice in your blender by adding water to the mixture.

Tips: Serve with a side bowl of chopped tomatoes, cucumber,red onion, avocado, and red chili peppers for guests to add more chunks or spice to their soup.

3 cups ripe red tomatoes, seeded and diced (heirloom whenever possible)
1/2 cup celery, diced
1 avocado, diced
2 cups cucumber, diced
2 cups red bell pepper, diced
1 red onion, diced
1/4 cup basil, chopped
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon cumin
Pinch of cayenne, if you like it spicy
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon juice from a lemon or lime
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2 cups of veggie juice--made by juicing a combination
of any vegetables you have on hand including celery,
carrots, broccoli, tomato, leek, cilantro, spinach, and
red bell pepper.

Mix together diced tomato, celery, avocado, cucumber, red pepper, and onion. Divide the mixture in half, placing 1/2 into your blender along with the garlic, cumin, cayenne, salt and pepper, lemon juice, and vinegar. Blend until smooth. Add vegetable juice to the blender and blend until incorporated.

Taste for seasonings and adjust to your liking. Pour the mixture into the bowl of diced vegetables and store covered in the refrigerator. Let sit overnight, or at least 3-4 hours if you just can't wait.

Spice it up a bit with jalapeño or dried red chili flakes. You can serve in shot glasses with a wedge of lime for a dinner starter; or for a lunch portion, ladle into large colorful bowls and garnish with cilantro leaves and a thin wedge of lime.

Serves 4 to 8.
