Raw food diets (where food is eaten raw and if heated, the temperature can’t exceed 118 degrees Fahrenheit) are becoming increasingly popular today for a variety of reasons: a quest for weight loss and increased energy, reduced risk of diseases, an aversion to animal based foods or simply a desire to consume more whole, nutrient-rich ingredients. Whatever each person’s reason, raw food diets and/or lifestyles are certainly becoming more mainstream.
This wonderful collection of recipes will appeal to both novices and veterans of the raw food lifestyle — they are imaginative, feature easy-to-follow instructions and are incredibly delicious.
