Can you read a cookbook like a novel? It's one of my pleasures. This time, I scanned through the book and watched the DVD. I put many ingredients on my shopping list. Good to see someone using a spirulator.

Recommends it for: any one or two person household that desires healthy-raw no fuss recipes
When I first perused this book, I gave it only 3 stars but when I read it through I upped it to 4 stars. Some ultra easy (almost non-) recipes but that's ok, because reminds me that foods such as plain frozen bananas and lemon water and oj can taste delicious and are healthy.

Really well laid out. Each recipe has an equipment needed list in the page margin. Lots of basic information good for raw novices.

And unique in that the recipes really do generally call for 1 or 2, occasionally up to 4 servi

This was absolutely a book i judged by it's cover. and the recipes are a little frumpy, too. First, some of them are too simple- i do not need a recipe for orange juice. the key lime mousse needed more ingredients to make it more mousse-y and less avocado-y. However, NONE of the recipes require sprouting or dehydrating. none of them have more than 6 or 7 ingredients. and all of them are in small, try-able quantities. the california rolls were good, the peach pie was good, but the most AMAZING re ...more

This is the third raw food book I've bought and it is also my favorite. What I love about it is that it explains everything you need to do in a simple manner - the other books led you on a complicated sort of scavenger hunt to make the entire recipe. This is a fantastic beginner book for someone who has never made a raw food meal! I cook a lot, but I've never made anything like this and I now love some of the recipes in here like the zucchini spaghetti, cucumber soup, not-meat balls or the not-t ...more

This is THE book I recommend to anyone starting a raw foods diet. The recipes are easy, fast, and require no special ingredients or equipment.

This book is great when you are first starting out in raw. This stuff is highly seasoned and some high fat. I have never been much on fancy raw recipes. These are not too complicated. Not all raw is good. You can definitely be eating mostly raw junk food if you choose to do so. This book is good for transitioning to a raw food diet. I've been raw off and on for several years now...not an easy thing to do for most people. I try to stick to whole foods and and green smoothies. I'm trying to fit mo ...more

I got this book because I'm constantly looking for simple and easy raw food dishes. Also because the serving sizes are so small. I'm only cooking for me so a lot of times a 4 serving is just way to much. This book has some good recipes in it. I liked it. I gave it 3 out of 5 stars because me being some one who owns a lot of raw food cooks books, this one was a bit boring. It had nothing new or interesting that made me want to run to the supermarket to get stuff to try. But it does have tried and ...more

I ordered this book after I had been high raw for about one month. When it finally arrived at my house, I was thoroughly impressed. Not only are the recipes simple and easy to follow, they are delicious! My favorite is definitely the Muesli, a tantalizing mix of oats, sunflower seeds, chopped nuts, and raisins all topped with cinnamon, fresh fruit, and homemade almond milk! A close second is the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough! One does not need a fancy new kitchen setup; they merely need to rearran ...more

Not just for raw foodists - anyone interested in incorporating more fresh food into their diet will find this a useful and encouraging 'cook' book.
No need for fancy equipment like dehydrators, or far-fetched ingredients, or time-consuming stints in the kitchen - these recipes have been designed with busy people in mind, and are supplemented with practical advice/information (such as how long the dish will keep in the fridge) and helpful suggestions (different ways to use a particular dish etc).

This is a great recipe book to start with if you are interested in incorporating more raw foods into your diet. The recipes are made for 1 to 2 people so there isn't the problem of having an excess of leftovers and the recipes are easily doubled if need be. The recipes are simple and use easily obtained ingredients. It starts with an introduction that lists kitchen utensils/ appliances needed, as well as pantry staples. Some of my favorite recipes are zucchini pasta with puttanesca sauce, Califo ...more

Although I'm not sure a cookbook can be considered "read" as in the past tense, this is a book I will continue to be reading forever - it gives amazingly simple ways to eat my favorite type of food - raw! I have another cookbook with great recipes that are usually time consuming and call for expensive ingredients but this book is for people like me - not a lot of time nor money - but want to eat as healthy as possible! I can't thank a special friend enough for sharing the many delights this book ...more

I've been thinking about incorporating raw food into my diet but the recipe books I looked at had very complicated and fiddly recipes. Plus I can't ever imaging preparing food that requires hours and hours in a dehydrator, I simply don't plan my meals that far in advance.

This book - despite some laughable recipes (apple juice = quarter four apples and juice them. Ahem) was just what I was looking for. Small quantity raw food recipes that contain only a handful of ingredients and that are straigh

I've only read two raw food books, but of the ones I've read this was definitely better. It was easier, required far less kitchen "equipment" and was more manageable for a small household. I'm not a raw foodie, and probably never would be, but I love reading anything on nutrition or fitness so this one definitely deserved a chance. I can't see myself making more than a small handful of things from this book (like the smoothies, for example) but I'm sure they'll be lovely!

This is a great intro for someone who may have never eaten vegetables before. There are some really good recipes and advice in it (PB cookies), but many of the recipes are too basic to even be called recipes. I liked this book, but I hesitate to call it a cookbook when it is really more of an idea book.

You don't need a kitchen full of expensive equipment. Most of these creations, you only need a blender, food processor and a will to try something new and exciting.

Read the book from library it was so helpful that I decided to purchase my own copy. I love it!!!

This was a keeper, great, simple, easy uncook book, check it out!!!

Lots of wonderful ideas for getting raw veggies in the daily diet. Most recipes call for a food processor or blender (which seems ironic). Will most likely try all the desserts which are gluten and refined sugar free. Seems like avocados and dates are major ingredients.
there are some really good base ideas in here, though i would argue that "chopped parsley" can't actually count as a recipe. i've already made a flourless chocolate cake and raw oatmeal using whole oats.

I liked the short ingredient list. Recommend a slow progression into Raw foods. I found out that my body does not digest raw foods and was sick for a week. Wish I would have read the Infertility Cure book first thus I steam all my veggies now. :)

If you are looking for a great raw vegan recipe book, or if you just want to eat healthier and feel amazing, get this book. You can make all the food in 5 to 15 minutes. And there is no cooking. Love this book.

Recommends it for: anyone with a good food processor
Raw vegan desserts are awesome because they look like junk food, but they aren't.
As a raw food book, it's good. We end up taking some recipes from it for our ETL diet (Vegan+), but this is not a staple in our repertoire.

This was such a great book for beginners! Very simple recipes, clear instructions, and it was great how all the recipes were for one or two people. The only downside was how few photos there were.

This is one of my go-to books for a recipe. I really love her mango avocado salad, and the grapefruit salad. It's not my favorite raw book, but I do use it frequently.
