Not only the best but the raw "cookbook" I use most often,
This review is from: Raw Food Made Easy: For 1 or 2 People (Paperback)I've been reading about raw foods for years and acquired several books and recipes on-line. I attended the author's demonstration at Karyn's. Unlike some (not all) raw foodists, she looked very healthy and was amiable and non-judgemental. I must use this cookbook 3-4 times a week. I may have to buy a new copy because it is getting so dirty! I have made smoothies, salads, desserts and even actual entrees. With other cookbooks I might have made a smoothie or a soup here or there, with this one I'm creating full raw food courses meals. The zuccinni pasta is great as is the raw chocolate flourless cake and the blueberry tart is genius. It's nice to be able to make things for yourself vs. having to buy them from raw food restaurants (which I'm lucky to be near two). Since I have bought this book I have eaten more raw foods than ever before. I think the author is smart to realize that if the raw food trend is going to catch on, it needs to relate to busy people and communicated in a pleasant, non-preachy way. I can't wait for the next book she writes!

Ditto on everything you said. I'd add that she recognizes that maybe not everyone in your family is into raw food and you might want to add a couple of other non-raw things, yourself. Grateful for her flexible ways. Very easy to adopt in the 'real world'.

Great review. You provided the "real" factor I was looking for. Thanks!
