ive had quite a good diet during my training but eat quite a bit of meat. this book really helps me to get non meat recipes and i have been feeling a lot better and more energized since eating more raw and vegetarian meals.
there are plenty of different and varied recipes to suit all tastes and some lovely desert recipes which are great for someone with a sweet tooth like myself.
i received this book free for an unbiased and honest opinion which i believe i have given

Additionally, this cookbook has NO pictures or photos of the food. Not everybody is comfortable or familiar with a raw food diet, so it would probably have been helpful to include some photos of some of the food; this could make it more approachable for some readers.
The recipes in the book are varied. There are numerous, numerous recipes. In case anybody is interested, I have written down the first 35 recipes to give you an idea of what you can see in the book. There are also plenty of other recipes so if you do not see anything here that you like, there are still more recipes for you to explore: (1) Brussels Sprout Tarts with Mushrooms, Peppers, and Onions; (2) Tomato Sambar with Spaghetti Squash "Rice" and Nut Chutney; (3) Collard-Quinoa Wraps; (4) Raw Tostadas with Guacamole; (5) Spicy Almond Kelp Noodles; (6) Chickpea Salad Chard Wraps; (7) Raw California Rolls; (8) Raw Lasagna; (9) Raw BBQ Over Zucchini Noodles; (10) Chard Pockets; (11) Parsnip "Risotto" with Peas and Basil; (12) Zucchini Noodles with Broccoli and Pesto; (13) Raw Fajitas; (14) Spinach Mushroom Quiche; (15) Raw Carrot Falafel; (16) Raw Burgers; (17) Raw Mushroom Burgers; (18) Raw Dolmas with Tahiti Sauce; (19) Stuffed Peppers; (20) Spinach Manicotti; (21) Raw Marinara; (22) Buckwheat Curry Bread; (23) Butter Lettuce and Avocado Salad; (24) Red Pepper Bisque; (25) Carrot-Tomato Soup; (26) BBQ Walnuts; (27) Cauliflower Couscous; (28) Creamy Chipotle Kale Salad; (29) Cashew Cheese; (30) Oat and Seed Bread; (31) Cauliflower Salad with Ranch Dressing; (32) Mashed Celery Root with Garlic and Chives; (33) Sundried Tomato Spread; (34) Caper Hummus; (35) Sunflower Seed Pate.
While some of these are a bit strange, there are certain recipes which are absolutely delicious, such as the mashed celery root, the zucchini noodles, and some of the breakfast recipes. It is the tastiness of these recipes which raised the review from 1 star to 2 stars.

Fruits and vegetables are low in calories and nutrient dense, which means they are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. Focus on eating the recommended daily minimum of five servings of fruit and vegetables and it will naturally fill you up and help you cut back on unhealthy foods.
Try to eat a rainbow of fruits and vegetables every day as deeply colored fruits and vegetables contain higher concentrations of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Add berries to breakfast cereals, eat fruit for dessert, and snack on vegetables such as carrots, snow peas, or cherry tomatoes instead of processed snack foods.
If you have never heard of the Mediterranean diet, it probably is time you Google it and learn because you will love it. Mediterranean diet incorporates the basics of healthy eating. Most healthy diets include fruits, vegetables, fish and whole grains, and limit unhealthy fats. While these parts of a healthy diet are tried-and-true, subtle variations or differences in proportions of certain foods may make a difference in your risk of heart disease.
Benefits of the Mediterranean diet
I read an article online that stated that, “Research has shown that the traditional Mediterranean diet reduces the risk of heart disease. The diet has been associated with a lower level of oxidized low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol — the "bad" cholesterol that's more likely to build up deposits in your arteries. In fact, a meta-analysis of more than 1.5 million healthy adults demonstrated that following a Mediterranean diet was associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular mortality as well as overall mortality”
Armed with this information, it seems like an awesome way of eating for all age groups and a healthy way of daily eating instead of going on diets.
An article I found online gave the information below as a guide for Mediterranean diet. I hope you find it helpful.
• Eat your veggies and fruits — and switch to whole grains. An abundance and variety of plant foods should make up the majority of your meals. Strive for seven to 10 servings a day of veggies and fruits. Switch to whole-grain bread and cereal, and begin to eat more whole-gain rice and pasta products.
• Go nuts. Keep almonds, cashews, pistachios and walnuts on hand for a quick snack. Choose natural peanut butter, rather than the kind with hydrogenated fat added. Try tahini (blended sesame seeds) as a dip or spread for bread.
• Pass on the butter. Try olive or canola oil as a healthy replacement for butter or margarine. Use it in cooking. Dip bread in flavored olive oil or lightly spread it on whole-grain bread for a tasty alternative to butter. Or try tahini as a dip or spread.
• Spice it up. Herbs and spices make food tasty and are also rich in health-promoting substances. Season your meals with herbs and spices rather than salt.
• Go fish. Eat fish once or twice a week. Fresh or water-packed tuna, salmon, trout, mackerel and herring are healthy choices. Grilled fish tastes good and requires little cleanup. Avoid fried fish, unless it's sauteed in a small amount of canola oil.
• Rein in the red meat. Substitute fish and poultry for red meat. When eaten, make sure it's lean and keep portions small (about the size of a deck of cards). Also avoid sausage, bacon and other high-fat meats.
• Choose low-fat dairy. Limit higher fat dairy products such as whole or 2 percent milk, cheese and ice cream. Switch to skim milk, fat-free yogurt and low-fat cheese.
• Raise a glass to healthy eating. If it's OK with your doctor, have a glass of wine at dinner. If you don't drink alcohol, you don't need to start. Drinking purple grape juice may be an alternative to wine.
I received this book for free in place of an honest review.
This book starts out by giving you some information on the raw food fad happening now and the benefits. It also goes on to explain some ingredients that some may not be aware of. But it's very vague with only mentioning 3 food items and there are many in recipes that I really don't know what they are. It would have been nice to have had more of the other ingredients included. The chapters include Main Ingredients, Side dishes, appetizers, sauces and breads, Breakfast and Brunch. My favorite section would be the breakfast and brunch.
You really need to have time to make these recipes. I didn't realize how time consuming preparing raw meals would be. Another issue I have are some of the ingredients are difficult to find in the small Midwest towns and ordering online such items can be quite pricey.
I do wish pictures would be added. It's always beneficial if you can see the finished product. There isn't a single picture. Which is why I am marking a 4*.
I received this book at no cost for my honest and unbiased review.
