I've been trying to figure out the best way to review this book. On the one hand, hard-core rawies maybe won't like the fact that the authors are not 100% raw all the time. But me? I like this. They may say that the recipes are so simple, so why write them into a raw cookbook? Yes, they are simple, but they are very different than those I've seen in other raw books, and I have, I swear, most every raw book published! I enjoy and get inspiration and ideas from them all. But taste and simplicity are the themes here.

In addition to the great recipes, this book is pretty - nice layout, photos, etc., and honestly I am a sucker for pretty books. But again, I am enamored with the ease of these recipes. I think it's almost validation for how I eat and most usually approach the raw thing, meaning - in the summer and early fall and even spring it's much easier and feels more natural to eat a lot of raw. But I live in the Midwest, and in the winter, it is very counterintuitive for me to hunt for pineapple and mango to make a smoothie. I want root vegetables - sometimes cooked - and miso soup. And I won't apologize for that. (There are no cooked recipes in here and none for miso soup, I was just making a point.) I do love the raw recipes that use these root veggies (parsnip, celery root, sweet potatoes and Jerusalem artichokes for example)and I am totally all over the fruit porridges. I'm making my own versions with seasonal fruit and chia seeds, and although many may say it's just a smoothie with less liquid, OK - but I didn't think of it - and I love it. Especially the idea to add celery. My non-raw husband also loved the taco fixings, which we had last night.

I think those new to raw will love these recipes. And those who truly need or want to put something together quickly.

I cannot list all the recipes that I love from this book, as this review would never end, but my girlfriend thinks I'm a master chef due to this book, and I never was that good in the kitchen to begin with.

As someone who used to work for a smoothie company, I can attest that the fruit smoothie recipes in this book are the real deal. I've even concocted my own recipes based on the ones from the book, all though the originals always seem to taste better than mine.

Overall this book is an A+. The food is consistently good, the recipes are easy to follow (which is important) and I'm eating healthier every single day, and have even given up fast food!

Please buy this book, you won't regret it.

I've been flirting with raw food for a while now but ever since i received this book, i have yet to eat a cooked meal. All recipes come out beautiful and delicious, including desserts! Raw carrot cake and raw tacos were a hit at an omnivore's potluck dinner and got everyone interested in raw foods.
I do not own a dehydrator and until last week i did not have a spiralizer either, but you really don't need any special equipment for the recipes in this book.
Looking forward to see what the authors will publish next. Anyone remotely interested in raw foods should give it a try and begin with this book.

I am a newcomer to raw food, but I started with Alissa Cohen's book, Living on Live Food, which is 50% raw food theory and justification, and only 50% recipes and way too big and heavy. However, Cohen's book has some great recipes that I have used successfully.

I bought Palmcrantz and Lilja's Raw Food thinking I would like to learn some new ideas. This book has little in the way of creative recipes. It's biggest drawback is that it has no index, so if you do find something you would like to refer back to, good luck in finding it! All of the dishes it describes are for completely raw, non-dehydrated foods, so you don't need any special equipment (like a dehydrator) to follow its recipes. I tried making the "I Can't Believe Its Not Salmon Pate" recipe - and I couldn't believe it wasn't a very dull paste composed principally of sunflower seeds, almonds and carrots! This book is light on raw food meal ideas and heavy on glamorous photos of healthy-looking Swedish people. So I'm still looking for a good raw food guide.

Great little book...will bring you closer to tasty heathy foods, especially if your are suffering from an illness and want to energize you sick body. Love It! I'm like all of these type books. The raw diet helped me be able to eat three full meals a day, (no eating in between, stomach has to rest sometime you know) three full meals a day and with satisfaction! And the weight just dropped off, 10 pounds a month, or 2 1/2 pounds a week, I lost 60 pounds! Raw eating is so wonderful!

I LOVE this book. I'd probably have bought it for the photos alone. Most food prep books have a small handful of photos stuck in the center and that's it. This one has large, as in almost life-size, yummy photos on almost every page. It's almost a coffee table picture book.

It's a really nice thing to be able to decide what you want to make by looking at a picture of it as opposed to guessing what the recipe will make. The BEST part is that the recipes are pretty darn simple and with ingredients you can find. Unlike anther raw food book I have where the recipes are complex and filled with expensive and hard to find ingredients. Who wants to have to mail order stuff to make dinner?

Everything looks delicious, doesn't require exotic equipment, or ingredients. Plus, because the recipes are simple you can easily doctor them to your liking. Simple example is the seriously yummy apple pie. It's simple to make, but since I have dehydrator I chose to warm and soften the apples like a cooked apple pie. Yum!

The downside of this book is that someone skimped and didn't put in an index! What were they thinking? The table of contents is sparse and no index?!? So, if you saw something a bit ago that you wanted to try or have some ingredients and want an idea of what to make with them, you either have to remember what meal or category it was in or flip through the book to find it. Not a hardship as the book is fun to just look through, but if they make a new version (please do, there's still room on my shelf), please include an index. Heck, I'd gladly download an errata with an index.

I was going to give it 4 stars for the lack of index but I like the book so much that it probably deserves more than the allowed 5. This is a book worth having.
