Simple and simply delicious recipes! Some of the ingredients are a bit hard to find, but overall it's worth the effort.

Some ingredients require 30 minutes to prepare to use in the 30 minute recipe, e.g., Sour Cream Queso Fresco, but all worth it in the end. I've tried the Spicy Hand Roll and Green Tomato Pave and was very nicely surprised. I have to say my favorite book is Raw Food Real World for the sheer number of DELICIOUS recipes. Eating raw is a 'journey' and does require a bit more work...but once you become familiar with the preparation process and you discover how much better you feel, you'll find it hard to eat any other way. Good Luck!

Thanks for getting back with me. It sounds like the recipes are quick to prepare, but still with a gourmet flair about them. I think I'll request a copy for my library, as they are beginning to build quite a nice little selection of raw books there. I live in a deep south city. Not only are there no raw cafes, but no vegan or even vegetarian restaurants. If we want to eat "non-SAD" food, we must make it ourselves. Thanks again.

Here's one more 'must have' book, "The Art of Raw Living Food" by Doreen Virtue and Jenny Ross. This has tasty and relatively simple recipes, as well...though, again, requiring 'time' ...to soak nuts or dehydrate, etc...but once these processes are complete, the recipes are easy to put together and quite tasty. Once you're use to the ingredients, you can adjust the flavor.
I live in the south east and the nearest 'metro' area is 25 minutes away. There's one restaurant that offers a full vegan menu and two other's have a partial "vegan" offering.
I'm going to try my hand at dehydrating and packaging some locally grown produce this upcoming year for my own use...though still 'tasty,' no 'mac and cheese' or 'grits' included. :)
You take care and my best to you in your effort!
