Really Natural Cookbooks: RawEssence: 165 Delicious Recipes for Raw Living

In the past year, I have shifted towards eating more raw food. During the day time, all I eat is raw. Dinner is the only mean I typically eat that is cooked.

Raw food doesn't have to simply mean you are munching on carrots and apples. There are many delicious recipes you can make! RawEssence: 165 Delicious Recipes for Raw Living by David Cote and Mathieu Gallant is sure to inspire you to eat healthier.

This new raw food cookbook is part of the growing movement that advocates a cuisine that is eco-friendly, meets nutritional needs and is immensely satisfying and delicious.

These outstanding recipes were originally created for Crudessence, the authors' restaurant and catering service, which is based on respect for living things and global well-being, which in turn promotes a healthy and responsible lifestyle. Rich in nutrients and enzymes, the recipes are recognized for their ability to revitalize and alkalinize the body.

The recipes are relaxed and flexible, making this an ideal cookbook for those who are just beginning to embrace the raw-food lifestyle. Because it also features an emphasis on attractive food presentation, experienced cooks will find it equally satisfying.

Sections include:

  • Living Raw Foods Worldwide

  • Techniques and Utensils

  • Basic Recipes

  • Juices and Smoothies

  • Soups

  • Salads

  • Pâtés

  • Fermentation

  • Dehydration

  • Appetizers

  • Desserts.

In full color throughout, dozens of color photographs provide inspiration for meals suited for every occasion. In addition to the recipes, there's a plethora of information about the benefits of living foods, ingredient properties and all manner of advice for a natural and healthy lifestyle.

Some of the recipes I can't wait to try are the pecan dill terrine, island lime pie, dark desire cake, and riccota roulade! Yum, these recipes will inspire me to eat more raw food at dinner time too.

Raw desserts are my favorite!
