This truly is an amazing recipe book! Every recipe has a full color photo and clear instructions. The ones I have tried so far are delicious and easy to make. Who knew that healthy desserts could be so easy, gourmet and also favorites of my family and friends! I never knew that raw food recipes could be like this.

Okay, full disclosure: I know the author, Susan Powers, and I helped her with this book. That aside, I would be writing this review even if I hadn't. Here's why: These desserts really are incredible. Delicious, easy-to-prepare, and there is not one 'bad' ingredient in the book. In the past, when I'd eat a dessert, I'd get a heavy, 'ick' feeling. When I eat these, unbelievably, I actually gain energy - without gaining weight. In fact, I was losing the stubborn 'menopause' pounds I'd been wrestling with for years. How could that be?

This book is a great gateway to the raw food lifestyle because people who think raw is too extreme are willing to try a chocolate nut brownie; a coconut macaroon... I'm bringing a raw torte to a family party this weekend - and I know that even our picky-eaters will take a sample - which I suspect they'll love!

Finally, the book is absolutely beautiful. Susan's a professional food photographer (is there anything this super-chef doesn't do?)

More About the Author

Having been involved with food and wine for years as a trained wine expert, gourmet food and fine wines were a part of my every day lifestyle. Meeting and working with many top chefs and studying classical french cooking along with many other cuisines, inspired my passion and creativity for food. It also led me down a path to excess weight, general fatigue and other symptoms that I knew were associated with my diet. My body was seriously rebelling and I needed to do something about it.

Then I found raw. It was exciting to find a whole new way to prepare and eat food. Exploring the world of raw food was fun. There were new things to learn at every turn. I tried some of my own recipes but experienced a lot of failure, so I just learned how to prepare raw food using every cookbook I could get my hands on. Reading about raw, the health benefits, and the principles behind this way of eating became an obsession.

I became 100% raw. It was amazing. I lost weight, had more energy than I have ever had and the best part was the mental clarity that I began to experience. My health issues resolved themselves and I felt better than I had for years.

But all journeys have their bumps in the road. Minnesota winters are very cold and long. Stress was building up in my life from other sources and I defaulted back to my "comfort" food. All the consequences of what I was eating became glaringly obvious as I gained weight, experienced more fatigue and lost my focus.

Knowing full well that all of the symptoms I was having were directly related to what I was eating, when spring hit, I decided to dedicate myself to eating high-raw.

I believe that a healthy diet consists of raw and cooked food. I now eat about 80% raw, 100% vegan.

With a little patience, planning and some transitional recipes, it is easy to avoid the pitfalls that temp us. Eating well is one of the best gifts that we can give ourselves and our loved ones.

It is said that 60% of our illness in this country is caused by the SAD (Standard American Diet). Our current way of eating is not only making us sick, it is also quickly depleting our planet of it's resources in ways that are completely unnecessary. It is time to bring a new mindset to the masses. Help us spread the word as we show ways to a more nutritional way of eating that celebrates the flavor and beauty of food!
