Editorial Reviews

Review

For someone who loves to cook, Natasha Kyssa's kitchen is strangely bereft of appliances. No stove. No microwave. No set of T-Fal frying pans.... What she cooks--if you can call it that--is raw.... Raw food has slowly gained credibility and followers, notably celebrities like Demi Moore and Sting. And they may be on to something. A 2005 study by the University of Washington School of Medicine found that when compared to those on the Standard American Diet, raw foodists had less chronic inflammation, lower cholesterol, and less IGF-1, a growth factor that, when elevated, is associated with increased risk of breast and prostate cancers.
Ottawa Citizen (Ottawa Citizen 2009-04-16)

Reading the preface to The Simply Raw Living Foods Detox Manual is enough to make a reader want to give detox a shot. Ms. Kyssa is obviously beautiful, as shown in the book's photograph, but did not come to healthy living easily. Her prior battles with eating disorders, cigarette smoking and weight gain show that she knows what it's like to succumb to unhealthy temptations and struggle with food-related addictions. Her healthy lifestyle today is testament to the success of this program. Recipes in the back will appeal to readers who do not wish to commit to the full month's system but would like to incorporate healthier raw foods into their diet.

Compact and comprehensive.... Kyssa covers much ground via a gradual approach that commences with a vegan, 80-percent-raw diet and progesses toward completely live foods.

The SimplyRaw Living Food Detox Manual is a motivational read. Once I started, I couldn't put it down. After raiding the natural foods store to purchase the materials, I immediately was drawn to the kitchen to start experimenting. As a vegan, I tried "Raw" diets in the past and found that they did not work. I've read several other books, which included recipes or suggestions that typically required too many nuts and heavy foods as prime calorie sources, however, these foods tended to inhibit proper digestion.

Natasha's approach is fun (and delicious) and considers that an excess of oils/nuts can be an obstacle to feeling great. She has pages and pages of easy to make recipes. She also mentions alternatives for those with Candida (another ailment many of us grapple with).

Her writing is so supportive and encouraging. She stresses that this is a 28-day detox, not a "forever" program. However, I have found her approach to be one that I will continue even after the 28 days is complete. Granted, my diet was already 50% raw and full of sprouted foods prior to reading this book... so it wasn't a huge transition. I can see that this would be a greater adventure for someone on a standard North American diet, as he or she would likely receive much more dramatic improvement in their health. If I already feel this great... I can only imagine how amazing someone who currently eats processed foods, meats, and refined sugars will feel after this detox! In addition to recipes, there are also household and lifestyle tips that can help remove the toxins from your external surroundings. The book is surely a springboard to wellness.

I encourage anyone who just wants to be bold, improve their health/energy, and go on a 28-day culinary exploration to please implement this program!

While I have followed other detox regimens and juice fasts in the past, I like this plan far better than any others I've done. I appreciate her gradual approach; her advice to ease into the program by reducing one's intake of certain things before eliminating them completely at the beginning of the program is sage. For those new to Raw Foods, including lightly steamed veggies during the first week eases the transition and thereby increases the chances for success. And while I have not tried all of the recipes, I love how many she includes in the book. The variety makes a month long regimen much less daunting than the thought of a month of just salads. There are a number of recipes that I will continue to make after I am finished with the regimen (I'll freely admit that Rejuvelac will not be a regular part of my diet; I do like fermented grain beverages, but I've gotten so used to calling them 'beer'.) I also really appreciate the inclusion of dry brushing, meditation and other non-dietary aspects of detoxification. Not only do they contribute to the process, they are a good reminder that the process extends beyond just what we eat. I have recommended this regimen to several of my friends.

Format: Paperback
Compact and comprehensive, SimplyRaw begins with a crash course in the live-foods lifestyle, followed by a 28-day detox program, "because you're committing to changing your diet, not for a lifetime but for a short period of time. Twenty-eight days is sufficient time to make a difference, and a short enough time not to overwhelm you." Kyssa covers much ground via a gradual approach that commences with a program rather than a flat-out fast, believing that it is more sustainable while allowing you to continue to live and work. SimplyRaw includes meal plans, 135 recipes, and ends with this La Rochefoucauld quote: "To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art."

SimplyRaw does a SimplyWonderful job in first explaining how a raw food lifestyle is conducive to optimal health and then in showing how to adopt key elements of this lifestyle. Informative, engaging, and down-to-earth, SimplyRaw demystifies what raw food living is all about. Although the focus of the book is on the 28-day detox program, there's much to be had even if you decide not to do the detox---including a great overview of the benefits of raw food, and 135 practical, simple, and delicious recipes.

For the raw novice, this book is a great place to start; for the raw enthusiast, it's a great place to continue!

You know the feeling you get when you finally break down and clean out that "file drawer" in your desk that you have been avoiding? If you are like me, it's a feeling of great satisfaction and accomplishment. I have been putting off doing a good "detox" program for myself for a while even though I wanted to and knew I should... after reading Natasha's book and incorporating her suggestions I made a commitment and did it! And you know what? I have the same feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment as cleaning out the "file drawer" but better energy levels and less wear and tear on the paper shredder. Hey, I figure that if I'm going to be diligent about the oil changes on my car I should at least give my body the same courtesy.

Despite all of the raw food recipe and detox books on the market, this is one I keep going back to, time and time again. It doesn't matter if you're a seasoned raw foodie or a beginner. The author has written a book that's easy to follow and full of delicious, healthy recipes that are great to put into your every day, whether you intend to detox or not. It's a book that can change your health -- and therefore your life -- for the better. I can't recommend it highly enough! Thanks Natasha for sharing your knowledge and insights!
