I need to preface my review by saying that for those of you who really love this book, please don't get upset with my review. I acknowledge all your reasons for loving THE GODDESS OF RAW FOODS. I just think maybe others will appreciate some counterpoint.

I eagerly purchased this raw food recipe book based on all of the beautiful 5 stars reviews here. Hungry for new living food recipes, some variety and a new spin on the raw vegan lifestyle, I really wanted a new recipe book to love and hoped this would be the one. Sadly, it was not and I decided to return it. That's not to say that this beautiful book, authored by the equally beautiful and accomplished Nwenna Kai, is not a fine book. It is. It is just not for me. Why and why the 3 stars only?

Well, my main criticism concerns the actual content of the book. It is deceptive, by which I mean to say that the huge print takes up too much space in such a short book. It actually put me in mind of a children's book, making it difficult at first for me to connect with Nwenna's message. There are only 130 pages of volume but when you consider that much of that space is dedicated to Nwenna's story, her food philosphy and some useless lists (like the sexiest fruits, etc), all in super large print...well, you just don't get much bang for the buck. The recipes are indeed impressive ~ fresh, creative and appealing and the photos are gorgeous. I just wished for more. I could appreciate the large print if the book in fact offered more content.

I love that Nwenna dedicated the book to the Mahatma Gandhi. I hope other readers will also notice her touching dedication to his memory.

The book itself is well organized and offers both a good Table of Contents and Index which I always appreciate in any recipe book.

The Goddess of raw foods is a god send for a family of 7 who were looking to change their eating habits, but had no intrest in bland boring vegeterian foods(diets). New to raw foods, we needed something that would not make us crave the old eating habits, and cling to and enjoy the raw food way.
This book is full of great information and recipes that the entire family enjoys... Even my 10, 8, and 6 year olds! They couldn't believe when I told them the chocolate pudding was made from avacados!
I have lost 15 lbs. since using the book. Many of the recipes are so simple, my young children help prep and eat the fruits of their labor.It has truely turned into a labor of love in our kitchen.
Written in a very down to earth style, it's not preachy like some other raw food books I've encountered... rather, it invites you in one dish at a time.
I have left the world of the meat eating for good! Do yourself a favor and pick up this book and join me. You will be forever greatful.
To your health,
Muata

She is such a great raw chef. I first met her at the Los Angeles restaurant she owned for years. The food was absolutely delicious. I didn't feel deprived of anything. Better, I felt like I was experiencing all these new flavors and tastes. So glad she took the time to write it all down for the rest of us to give it a try. For the person who moves quickly and doesn't like to slave over a stove (like me), this is such an easy alternative. And I feel great!

The recipes in the book are straight forward and easy to follow. The Hemp Burger, Chocolate Mousse and the Burrito Wrap are my favorites. I made the three raw dishes for a raw retreat and everyone loved them and asked about a second serving. The book Rawcks!

She truly is a Goddess! Great Great book!! Inviting and educational, her recipes are A-mazing...AND The big bold letters make it easy to read while in the kitchen. It isn't filled with useless mumbo-jumbo. Even the colors/texture of the book are of great quality. I can tell her Heart and Love was poured into the making of this book...Thank U Nwenna!!!

I just received my copy of the Goddess of Raw Foods and I am so inspired by all of the simple raw food recipes. My 8 year old daughter is excited about going raw now. We make the chocolate mousse recipe all the time now. I never knew you could have healthy and great tasting desserts before. I am thrilled to have my own copy. Now my co-workers are buying the book. Magnificent.

Much of the beginning introduction of Nwenna's raw food philosophy in her book, "The Goddess of Raw Foods" allowed me to get to know her, by her thoughtful and insightful sharing of some of her life before she evolved and changed her life and her experiences in the direction of raw food living! Even though some of the info in her book, like the page that has the basic raw food kitchen staples listed, has been seen before in similar types of books, I really like The Goddess of Raw Foods on a whole because I appreciate the simplicity of the recipes, funny and catchy names for the recipes and just a beautiful laid out and delightful book! I have enjoyed making a few of the recipes already, especially the 'Tropical Slushy,' with (coconut water, mango, papaya, banana......to name a few ingredients) which reminded me of some of the delicious smoothies we make in Jamaica!!!!! Thanks Nwenna for sharing a taste of goodness with fun and such flavorful looking recipes!!! One Love, Sistah Vickie
