2.0 out of 5 stars Greasy Recipes, July 5, 2008
This review is from: Ani's Raw Food Kitchen: Easy, Delectable Living Foods Recipes (Paperback)
I bought this book hoping that it would provide some new and interesting recipes. I have been preparing healthy raw meals for over 2 years. I have a few problems with Any's book: (1) All her recipes use lots of oil and nuts, and many of them a lot of sugar, and therefore they are ultra-high in calories, (2) Most of her recipes are from other cookbooks (not much of originality), (3) I find it very unappealing to see Any's photos on every other page instead of pictures of deliciously cooked food. Honestly, the book from Jennifer Cornbleet is much better for simple, delicious and light raw meals.

I agree about the photos. What was the publisher thinking? Very self indulgent and off putting, completely turned me off of the book.

I have the book - and none of the recipes call for sugar. Dates ? Yes. Never is sugar used. But high in oil? YES. I could not belive the excess of oil some dishes called for . YUCK. And I love olive oil - but not when it takes over the flavor of the whole meal. The book has a great desert section. My family Loves the RAW PIES I learned to make. XOXO its a good reference to have. Thumbs up!

Oil is good for you. A lot of vegans get it ALL wrong by limiting fat. Our brain is mostly fat and your skin and hair don't look so hot either without it. It's the TYPE of oils you ingest that can be problematic. I don't want to dry up and get an extremely hollowed out eye look like a lot of people do when they strictly limit fats. I agree about the sugars though, I'm not a big fan consuming high sugar meals whether they are natural sugars or not.
