This book has a lot of clean recipes in it. The first part of the book is a thorough explanation of all the different ingredients you would use or the different items you would need to prepare the different snacks in the book. Tourles breaks down the book into different types of foods - i.e. smoothies, bars, soups, etc.

Worth checking out if you are into eating healthier.

I bought this on a whim on amazon last month for $3 as a kindle deal of the month. I'm glad I did.

So here's the deal: the last two years I've started getting really passionate about being healthy. I've always had weird health problems that are all unexplainable to the medical community (chronic fatigue, morning nausea, joint pain, etc. etc.). I thought I might be celiac and tried eating that way and felt better, my test came back negative, though. Two years ago D's cousin who owns a health

had some really interesting and yummy looking recipes. Still have to try them, but I'll update this when I do.

I do wish, though, that there were some more versatile items; I felt that only a few could be used for more than one purpose... Unlike when I first opened the book, and read the introduction, this book only partially lived up to its hype, so that was a little disappointing to me. I had expected more smoothies and the like, and there weren't that many. I'm kind of disappointed. out of the

I was excited to learn I would be reviewing this Recipe Book. My husband is all about energy drinks, bars and things of that nature. I hate it that he consumes all that sugar in those energy drinks and I thought the Raw Energy Recipe Book would be a great way to get him to eat more healthy and still have his energy boosts threw out the day.

The first 2 chapters go over the raw snack basics and what you would need in the kitchen and items in your pantry and what they do for you. I Liked that it

If anything, I enjoyed the information about raw foods in the beginning more than the recipes. The photography is beautiful and inspiring on every single page. She explains the nutritional content of everything... from the raspberries you snack on, to the chives that top your soup. I get writer's block when I'm forming a grocery list, now all I have to do is flip through the beginning of this. Now onto the recipes. The smoothies aren't anything too special. The chips and dips section however, ...more

Sadly this book is missing pictures for most of its recipes; however, there are tons of delicious ideas. I have used several with great success, and only one dud. The author does waste a lot of print space going on and on about how wonderful each ingredient is for you. Save that info for the intro chapters, and leave the recipe pages for only what we need to know to make each dish, please.

This has to go back to the library before I've made all the recipes I want to try! So, I'm marking the

This was the first raw foods book I ever picked up and I love her recipes. It was a great intro to raw-vegan foods and it was fate that I bought it!

Even if you don't want to commit to a raw-vegan lifestyle, you can't argue that store bought, preserved, expensive energy bars aren't always "healthy" and the raw, organic, fresh recipes you can whip up at home are much better and cheaper!

I've read through a lot of recipe books lately and so far this is one of my favorites. So often when I read through a healthy cookbook I think yuck I wouldn't eat that! Not the case with these recipes. I've picked out 20 recipes I want to try. This book has a lot of snack like foods but as my kids will be heading back to school soon I'm looking for healthy "treats" to add to the lunches they'll be taking to school so these recipes are exactly what I was looking for.

I checked this book out from the library and was impressed with it so much that I checked it out a second time. I find most raw food cookbooks intimidating, but this one uses mostly basic ingredients and what's more? The author talks about the nutritional value of different ingredients and why they are important. Not only did I find some yummy raw recipes, I learned even more about nutrition! It's a great book for anyone curious about raw food.

Not all the recipes are technically vegan. Most of

Very good. Hardly the quintessential book On raw dieting but still it has a lot of recipes that are accessible and extremely healthy for any reader. Though some recipes require a Dehydrator which novices and newcomers to raw dieting and cooking will probably not have, many of these recipes require no special equipment.

Probably the most helpful raw cookbook I've read, because it isn't like, "TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE BY NEVER COOKING ANYTHING AGAIN AND SPENDING THREE DAYS PREPARING EACH MEAL." Instead it's like, "Here's a nice little raw snack that you can make in five minutes and have for breakfast tomorrow, you know, if you want to."

This book was a superb introduction to raw food and healthy, veggie-packed recipes. I do not intend to become vegetarian or vegan, but I do feel inspired to include more nutrient dense, plant-based foods in my diet after reading this book.

Educational, for sure. I am not ready (or willing) to completely change my diet to entirely raw eating. Raw Energy did give wonderful recipes and brilliantly listed the benefits of most ingredients.

Great recipes! But it's helpful to have a food processor and a dehydrator.

Too many recipes dependent upon nuts and dehydrator. Not for me.

Great book with tons of information. The recipes seem easy to do but some of the food items are in my normal shopping budget. Guess I need to revamp my grocery list. Totally recommend.

Pretty fat heavy, but the recipes are nice for a treat... don't believe her when she says that they're healthy though, unless they're basically fruit heavy and fat light.

The downside of vegan is all the hard work involved with making the recipes, mores the pity. I photocopied 2 recipes for future experiments and gave it away to a more ambitious cook!

Would be excited to try all these recipes if it weren't for that pesky nut allergy...
I'm sure I can substitute some things or leave some out and achieve a similar result.

The whole raw diet fascinates me. I truly believe in eating food that is 'alive'. But let's be completely honest; I bought this book for the desserts. :)
