Customer Review

on 8 March 2011
I bought this book because I have been trying to transition to a high raw diet for health. This book offers simple flexible plans to suit a variety of contexts. I found the general principles more useful than the recipes. For instance, going from 'light' to 'heavy' foods over the course of the day. I don't follow her plan religiously, but it has allowed me to start: this means fruit till lunchtime, raw salads/vegetables for lunch, a vegan dinner. She advocates a 'green lemonade' (juice of 2 green vegetables such as romaine, cucumber, kale, celery, 1-2 apples, 1 lemon, optional fresh ginger) everyday, twice a day, preferably first thing in the morning and as a pre-lunch snack. Most people may not have time for juicing in the morning before work so I have my version of green lemonade after work. If you follow her food combining guidelines though, you should be ok if you wait for about an hour after the juice before having dinner. For those considering this book for weightloss, there is no calorie counting. If you are looking for recipes they appear to be quite unfussy though there are a few gourmet versions as well. On the whole, a very practical book. Highly recommended.
