I have been very disappointed in many raw foods recipe books over the years. Too many of them are obsessed with dehydrators and complex recipes that make me want to avoid raw food diets.
Sunfood Cuisine is a great book that not only gives great recipes but gives excellent formulas for how to quickly develop your own.
There are some recipes that require dehydration which is annoying, but for the most part, the recipes are fabulous, creative and delicious.
The breakdown is (generally speaking)
Part 1: Sunfood Diet
Part 2: The ingredients
Part 3 The Recipes
Fruit Juices & Other Drinks
Dips & Sauces
Gourmet Sunfood Cuisine
How to transition
Hybrid vs wild food
Organic vs commercial food
The most interesting result of my purchasing and using this book and RECIPES FOR LIFE by Rhonda Malkmus is my dear husband's refusal to eat that stupid raw stuff that it was not good and it did not fill him up, etc.
After one week of making entirely raw food meals, he told me with a thrill that he loves eating this way (the kids are becoming fond of it as well) and that he really is not enjoying cooked food as much anymore.
That, is nothing short of a miracle!
We are on our third week using these books and the family is still happy and looking forward to mealtime.Read more ›

I have been waiting for this book for nearly two years. I now have the book and have been trying out some of the recipes. It's great to have someone talk about how to make the best raw soups, salads and others. Fred includes guides to create your own recipes. A very good book, well worth the price.
This is one of the very first books that I ever bought on the subject of raw foods, and my very first raw recipe book. Frederic provides his insight into why we should consume a raw, high water content, plant-based diet, and he also gives us a rundown on many common foods and their dietary benefits.
The recipes do not require any fancy equipment to prepare, so for the newbie that hasn't outfitted their kitchen with all the expensive gadgetry yet (or doesn't intend to), this is perfect.
This is a book that I lend to my friends!

This is one of the first books that I got from the library on raw foods. It was instrumental in changing my eating habits. The book does a great job of explaining why eating raw foods is beneficial and why cooked foods can be harmful. The chapters focusing on fruits, vegetables, nuts, etc are like an encyclopedia of raw foods and gives the benefits of each. This is a great reference to have if you begin to eat raw foods because you can easily scan the pages to see what individual things you need to incorporate into your diet to get the needed results. For example, I know that I need to regularly eat broccoli because it is high in calcium and I do not eat dairy frequently. The other sections are helpful too outlining what equipment etc that you need to get started as a raw foodist. After reading the book I decided that I had to buy a copy of my own.
