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!

Wonderful tempting recipes. However, after receiving the book I discovered that the photos of the dishes are in black and white. This was very disappointing. My inspiration to duplicate the dishes diminished since I couldn't preview the end result. After all, it was the amazing color photo on the cover that hooked me into reviewing and then purchasing the book in the first place. My opinion is if they aren't able to include color photos, they aught to leave them out altogether.

What a great book!
I ordered it from the author's website and what I like is that the recipes were in full colour, the ingredients are accessible in the UK, you dont need a lot of ingredients, and they are tasty and healthy. I find this book for busy single parent's, user friendly and I am looking forward to her next offerings.

It is such a shame that Amazon has the books mixed up. I believe they are showing the black and white version as the delux edition, but you have to click further down the page, where it says "about the author" and read down to the part where they say "This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition" and click on the highlighted word paperback and it will bring up the deluxe edition which is $34.99.
I am glad that I purchased from the author herself. I usually buy from amazon, but they did not stock it at the time.
I have the author's other rawmazing deserts book which is in full glorious colour too, and I have not tried any of the desert recipes yet, but they all look so good, and I can't wait to try them. I admit that the books are a little pricey, and I usually would not pay this much for a recipe book, but the colour photo's were so worth it and the books suit my lifestyle.

I look forward to her next offerings.

It's a nice recipe book. Has a lot of good recipes, not complicated and tedious. I get the author's e-mail newsletter so I was already familiar with her site and her work and recipes and she didn't fail me here.

There is a full color version. It is the deluxe version. I am trying to get this straightened out with Amazon.
