Chock full of recipes and resources
on February 16, 2012
I was only interested in the recipes and had to flip through the first half of the book to get to them, but for beginners, that first half offers a lot of information about raw-food eating.
As other readers have mentioned, the recipes are very well organized. You can go according to season, but there are sections for kid-friendly smoothies, dessert smoothies, savory ones and many others; for weight loss, mood, longevity, cellular health, bones and joints etc.
Kristine's Australian raw food friends offer guest recipes, however these require a long list of ingredients and a lot of specific products available through their websites. I haven't bothered with these because the four or five ingredient recipes of Kristine's are more than sufficient.
The back of the book features several informative websites for yet more information and recipes, so you get a lot of value.
The only disappointment is that there is no appendix. I wish ingredients were cross-referenced for easy reference. I'd like to find recipes with what I have on hand or feel like eating, rather than skimming the whole book every time.
Otherwise, in every way, this is a great book.
