Rating: 5/5 Stars
I am going to begin this review by stating that I am not living on an exclusively vegan raw food diet. I am interested in the recipes and concept, because I am always looking for innovative ways to add healthy food ideas to my diet, and raw food “cookbooks” have brought some of that inspiration with them. That was the intent, and it is what I received.
The recipes and images were wonderful, not too complicated, well thought through and mouth-watering. I have never been a fan of cold soups, but there were some real winners in this book, for example, the Sweet Almond Soup, which was a completely different experience, or the Earth Soup, which included Butternut Squash, my favorite type of winter squash.
What I also enjoyed was the fact that this book is filled with information on top of the recipes, that encourages a healthy, informed lifestyle. While again, I am not promoting 100 % raw eating as a personal choice, this book covers many aspects of how healthy such a choice can be, if done right, and armed with the correct information.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning about eating healthier and incorporating raw foods into their lives. Well done!
