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!

As someone mentions to produce many of the recipes it would be very useful to have a food processor, blender and dehydrator. In general if you want to do raw in general you really need some of these kitchen tools.
The book was a great deal on Amazon and reads well on the Kindle.
This Rawmazing book absolutely blew me away not only with photos, mini stories about each recipe, but especially because every recipe I have made so far is not only delicious, but beautiful as well, just like on the photos. And my non-raw family/friends are totally shocked that "this stuff" looks and tastes so great.
Please, note that Measurements are SO exact that when I tried to add/reduce just a little of some ingredient the overall dish would not be as perfect. So make sure you follow exact amounts of ingredients indicated in the recipe. For example, I added just a few more walnuts to my fudge and it was too much, so I had to take those exact 5 walnuts out to reach good consistency.... isn't it something!
Now I know I should not worry about adjusting a recipe because it is already perfected by Susan Powers.
So far, my and my non-raw friends favorites are Crapes, Roasted Tomato Soup, Wraps, Fudge, White Chocolate raspberry Cake (I did not have raspberries and used fresh figs and bananas, see photos). I attached photos of my dishes made from Susan's recipes.
Oh, one more thing, on the down side: in some recipes she does not specify small details and you just have to figure thing out on your own.Read more ›
This book is great for anyone starting out on a raw food journey as it goes over kitchen tools and appliances, how to set up a pantry, it has a terrific " helpful Hints" section and even easily explains the science behind why eating raw is good for you.
Even if you are not raw and just want to eat healthier, this cookbook has a plethora of great recipes. Whenever I am invited to a party the first cookbook off of my shelf is this one. Most of my friends are not Vegan and my dishes are always very well received and one of the first to get devoured! THAT SAYS A LOT ABOUT THE RECIPES! Susan is, quite simply, a genius in the kitchen.
It has everything from drinks, to appetizers, crackers, cheeses, salads, soups, main courses and..... lets not forget the desserts! The OMG Pecan Bars are..... OMG!
The photography is also stunning! Your mouth starts watering as soon as you open the book!
I highly recommend this and any Susan Powers cookbook for anyone looking for healthy, but delicious alternatives. ENJOY!
