In addition to the great recipes, this book is pretty - nice layout, photos, etc., and honestly I am a sucker for pretty books. But again, I am enamored with the ease of these recipes. I think it's almost validation for how I eat and most usually approach the raw thing, meaning - in the summer and early fall and even spring it's much easier and feels more natural to eat a lot of raw. But I live in the Midwest, and in the winter, it is very counterintuitive for me to hunt for pineapple and mango to make a smoothie. I want root vegetables - sometimes cooked - and miso soup. And I won't apologize for that. (There are no cooked recipes in here and none for miso soup, I was just making a point.) I do love the raw recipes that use these root veggies (parsnip, celery root, sweet potatoes and Jerusalem artichokes for example)and I am totally all over the fruit porridges. I'm making my own versions with seasonal fruit and chia seeds, and although many may say it's just a smoothie with less liquid, OK - but I didn't think of it - and I love it. Especially the idea to add celery. My non-raw husband also loved the taco fixings, which we had last night.
I think those new to raw will love these recipes. And those who truly need or want to put something together quickly. A lot of books say "quick" but there are often hidden steps or recipes within recipes that make this misleading. In this book, NONE of the recipes require dehydration, so save for the recommended nut soaking in some recipes, these are very easy to do. Over this Memorial Weekend, the book has been my go-to for some needed cleansing and "body resetting." I think this is a great book for beginners, as well as for those of us who are a little burned out on the more involved recipes many raw food books contain. Right now, this is the way I want to eat, and I'm so glad I found this at a local bookstore so I could see it for myself. I look forward to more raw food books by these two women! (Hope you're working on one!)
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.
I do not own a dehydrator and until last week i did not have a spiralizer either, but you really don't need any special equipment for the recipes in this book.
Looking forward to see what the authors will publish next. Anyone remotely interested in raw foods should give it a try and begin with this book.
It's a really nice thing to be able to decide what you want to make by looking at a picture of it as opposed to guessing what the recipe will make. The BEST part is that the recipes are pretty darn simple and with ingredients you can find. Unlike anther raw food book I have where the recipes are complex and filled with expensive and hard to find ingredients. Who wants to have to mail order stuff to make dinner?
Everything looks delicious, doesn't require exotic equipment, or ingredients. Plus, because the recipes are simple you can easily doctor them to your liking. Simple example is the seriously yummy apple pie. It's simple to make, but since I have dehydrator I chose to warm and soften the apples like a cooked apple pie. Yum!
The downside of this book is that someone skimped and didn't put in an index! What were they thinking? The table of contents is sparse and no index?!? So, if you saw something a bit ago that you wanted to try or have some ingredients and want an idea of what to make with them, you either have to remember what meal or category it was in or flip through the book to find it. Not a hardship as the book is fun to just look through, but if they make a new version (please do, there's still room on my shelf), please include an index. Heck, I'd gladly download an errata with an index.
I was going to give it 4 stars for the lack of index but I like the book so much that it probably deserves more than the allowed 5. This is a book worth having.
