Raw Food Books Intro

First A Little About Raw Food

I was first introduced to the concept of living completely on a raw food diet around 20 years ago, when I had a stay at the Hippocrates Health Center. I loved the foods so much, and how they made me feel that I jumped in head first- boots and all. I must admit that, today, I am not 100% raw, but do the best that I can. I certainly know how much better I feel all over when I am eating a high percentage of raw, whole foods regularly.

Not only can you make salads, both simple and grand, but you can also make things like butter and cheeses out of nuts and seeds. Glorious dressings and toppings. The most amazing mains and desserts – all raw, and all so good for you.

My most favorite dessert of all time is simply soaked dates and figs, processed until smoothish then smothered with a mix of blended, soaked figs and avocado. It is without a doubt the most heavenly food I have ever eaten. And, although it tastes so decadent, it is extremely healthy for a dessert.

So as a raw foodie and a book-a-holic, I would love to share these great books on how to actually prepare and serve raw foods with you. These books below are ones that I recommend and that I am sure you would love.

Going Raw Book Review

Everything You Need to Start Your Own Raw Food Diet and Lifestyle Revolution at Home

Going Raw Book ReviewPassionate about raw foods, the author, Judita Wignall is a certified Holistic Health Counselor who was trained at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

Going Raw is both a really great intro to starting a raw food lifestyle for newbies, as well as being very helpful for seasoned experts.

Apart from an array of healthy and delicious raw recipes, this book covers a whole heap of great information on how to “go raw” including how to sprout and dehydrate foods.

The recipes and steps to take described in Going Raw are easy to follow so you can turn out amazing meals – all from 100% raw, living food. And the reviews are very positive.

Of course there is a whole mass of simply delectable looking photos, that will have you drooling just looking at them. Here is just one review of the book:

5.0 out of 5 stars

Curious about raw? Look no further. By Pinot Noir

This book is a great place to start if you’re curious about the growing raw food scene. Judita Wignall, in a warm, practical and easy tone, explains it all. She lays out the kitchen basics including tools and techniques, offers a range of wonderful recipes from the simplest, throw-it-together-and-eat-in-your-hand wraps to wonderful tasty raw main dishes and the prettiest desserts. Each recipe has a step-by-step photo series, showing exactly how to get it done. There’s nothing precious or intimidating about her recipes, and she has included foods that are not too far removed from the already familiar, like her gorgeous raw vegan pizza, and her OMG brownies.

A great feature of the book is the planned menus, and the clear and easy nutritional information. She seems to have covered all the FAQs, including what she herself eats in a day.

And…the bonus DVD, tucked inside the cover, features Judita demonstrating recipes and techniques, which just brings it all to life.

Even if you’re not into raw food, the book itself is a beautiful piece of art for its design and photography alone. Just a lovely thing to look at and admire.

I can’t recommend this book highly enough if you’re a beginner, and need guidance on how and why and what to do.

Raw Food Book Review

Complete Raw Food Guide for Every Meal of the Day

Raw Food Book ReviewThe authors of “Raw Food” – Erica Palmcrantz Aziz and Irmela Lilja have put together a very practical, visually attractive full-color guide, that is ideal for any raw-food newbie but also for long term raw food people.

Although the authors do not seem to be 100% raw foodies, which may disappoint some readers,you will find that a lot of the recipes and inspirations are a little different than found in most raw food books.

For example, none of the recipes in Raw Food need you to own a dehydrator, so you can find lots to make without having to spend a lot on this expensive extra appliance.

Raw Food is a beautifully laid out book, with gorgeous and inspiring photos, and has a number of very positive reviews. Here is one of them:

5.0 out of 5 stars

Haven’t Found A Recipe I Don’t Like – By Jason

I cannot list all the recipes that I love from this book, as this review would never end, but my girlfriend thinks I’m a master chef due to this book, and I never was that good in the kitchen to begin with.

As someone who used to work for a smoothie company, I can attest that the fruit smoothie recipes in this book are the real deal. I’ve even concocted my own recipes based on the ones from the book, all though the originals always seem to taste better than mine.

Overall this book is an A+. The food is consistently good, the recipes are easy to follow (which is important) and I’m eating healthier every single day, and have even given up fast food!

Please buy this book, you won’t regret it.
