Eat Raw, Eat Well: 400 Raw, Vegan and Gluten-Free Recipes

Raw food is all the rage right now, so I wanted to check this out. The benefits of weight loss and increased energy as well as a reduced risk of certain diseases are some of the reasons that people want to eat raw foods. Others have an aversion to animal-based foods or simply wish to consume more whole, nutrient-rich ingredients.

Eat Raw, Eat Well: 400 Raw, Vegan and Gluten-Free Recipes will appeal to both newcomers to and veterans of the raw-food lifestyle. The recipes have easy-to-follow instructions. There is also a guide to properly prepare the ingredients in advance of meal preparation to enhance their nutritional value as well as a comprehensive list of “raw pantry” essentials.  The book goes over why you should eat a Raw Diet.  I also know a ton of people who need to eat gluten free diets and this book will definitely help!

There are a lot of recipes in here that you wouldn’t think that you could have like Alfredo sauce, pizza, and nachos.  There is even a strawberry daiquiri recipe.

If you’ve decided that the raw-food lifestyle is for you — either full-time or part-time — look no further than Eat Raw, Eat Well!
