Great things about Purely Delicious: + Raw food recipes + Helpful reviews + Good ideas for the raw foodist. + Almost no advertising
Things they could do better: - Shiny, glossy pages very hard to read - Artsy color combinations between backgrounds and fonts make reading this very unpleasant. (Blender review was black text on dark red background) - Some ingredients difficult to find: sunflower butter, charged water, yacon syrup, Irish moss gel, etc - Odd size, Pages are very large so you can't store them with your other magazines - Very thin, not many pages or content - Would be nice if they had a column explaining what some of the less common ingredients were. - Not recycleable, not for the eco-conscious.
I was so excited to find a raw foods magazine that I bought it before looking at it. When I got home I was disappointed. Many pages were hard to read, for example, the blender review was typed in black font on a dark red background. Further, the pages are very shiny making them hard to read. The combination of the shiny light reflecting pages and the odd color combinations gave me a headache when I read it.
If you can get past the dreadful colors of the pages, the recipes are great - for a hard core raw foodist. I'm not a hard core raw foodist, but my summer diet is mostly raw, I keep up with current food trends and I wouldn't know where to find some of this stuff. Beginners and occasional raw foodists would be baffled. Purely delicious does not even tell you where to find this stuff.
Overall, this is not the worst magazine I've ever read, but it is not what I hoped for.
I would prefer a meatier, simpler magazine with more great articles and less glossiness. I can't call this magazine "green". I won't order it again. I hope Hollywood doesn't take over the raw food movement. I'm afraid that will make it die.
