About the Author
The author, Kate Magic Wood, has been a raw foodist for almost fifteen years and has previously penned the hugely popular raw titles Eat Smart, Eat Raw and Raw Living . She also runs an online raw food store, Raw Living, selling her very own revolutionary raw chocolate cakes and bars. Miss Magic explains in the book: Although most people have heard of superfoods, there is some confusion over what the term actually means. I would classify them as natural plant foods which have two primary qualities: firstly, they are exceptionally high in nutrition and thereby provide the body with increased energy, and secondly, they have special intrinsic properties which can enhance our lives greatly. In my book, broccoli and blueberries are not superfoods! They may be very healthy food choices, but they don t have the super-charged density and vitality of true superfoods. True superfoods really can transform you into a superbeing!

The cover gave me the impression the recipe was inside, so I purchased on a whim and then, darn it :-( no cake recipe.
Returned the books as I really like Kate's other books, (Eat Smart Eat Raw doesn't require lots of expensive and harder to source superfoods, which are lovely, but not something we can all can buy every day), and I only bought this for one reason!
Publisher, play fair with us, it's a little bit cheeky, and even misrepresentative of the books content, plastering THAT TEMPTING IMAGE ON THE FRONT :-)
Although the recipies in this book are great, I did fell a little cheated..
I bought this book because I wanted a healthy chocolate cake recipe.
Before purchasing I saw the picture of the cake on the front cover, and knew it was Kate's famous Quantum Cake. I checked in the Contents Section where it was listed (page 220) great I thought, and bought the book.
I Felt a bit cheated when the book arrived. I turned to page 220 where Kate announces that she has not included this recipe (even though she uses a photograph of said cake to sell her book) She goes on to say, that if you want one you can buy one from her website!
I just thought this was rather mean and not in the spirit of JOY, LOVE, and HARMONY that Kate advocates. Come on Kate, spill the beans. How do you make that lovely chocolate cake?
goodies adds a sprinkle of magic to the recipes and awakens the taste buds.
Packed full of superfoods, small amount of recipes with fruit and nuts in. Oh and if you love cacao this is the book for you.
Yes Kate does use some ingredients that are not strictly raw, but with raw food being so creative and intuative Im sure stricter raw foodists can adapt the recipes as they need.
I love to 'read' through this book and look at the pictures as I decide what I want for tea. If you are a standard 'meat and two veg' eater, then this book might take some getting used to - but try some of the recipes and see how you feel.
