Raw food is more than a salad and a carrot stick. But armed with the knowledge of how good it is for you and the desire for that glowing skin, increased energy and fabulous feeling it can be hard to know where to start!
On my intensive training course with co-author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Eating Raw, Mark Reinfeld, I got a glimpse into just how great eating only raw food can be. And the strange thing was with so much direct nutrition I ate much less.
As a comprehensive guide to the nutritional and practical aspects of eating raw The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Eating Raw does its job well. I dive into this book whenever I’m stuck for a outstanding dessert, a rich and glorious pate, a new twist on a usually cooked main and for the best breakfast recipes yet.
Many of the recipes can be assembled without the high speed blender and dehydrator but to be honest if you’re heading down the raw food path or just wanting to incorporate more into your diet then you’ll be wanting the hardware.
Psst and don’t tell anyone who’s seriously raw but occasionally I blast some of these recipes over a flame for a brief moment :)
