I have to say, I'm on the fence if a raw diet is "the thing" though I know for myself that pasteurized and especially ultrapasteurized dairy is indigestible for me. And I prefer my fish raw, no two ways about it and most of my veg as well. However, grains and beans must be soaked at least and in the case of beans, sprouted or cooked to remove natural compounds that are actually toxic (and one bean, red beans, apparently are bad even sprouted.)
What recipes will you find here? Cold and warm soups, a few smoothies, gravlax (cured raw salmon), lassi (yogurt drink from India) and the like. The raw pasta is a recipe I'm familiar with from Raw Food Made Easy by Jennifer Cornbleet. This is my go-to raw book. Carol Alt also has a raw hummus, but hers varies from Cornbleet in that she uses sprouted chickpeas (or raw cashews or macadamia) to replace the cooked chickpeas. I'll go with zucchini, maybe it's less protein but it's also better tasting, to me and easier; I have no time to sprout chickpeas.
Since this book is not vegetarian or vegan, I put forth this warning because many raw foodists are also in that camp, so this book is not for you. However, if you enjoy fish and dairy, you might prefer Carol's book as it has recipes for yogurt and fish. When I was able to get raw milk from a local farmer, I did eat a lot of yogurt but now, as the herd is gone, I've stopped milk myself.Read more ›
My biggest challenge to eating raw is that I tend to avoid green foods. It's like a little phobia I have that holds me back. What I have going for me is that I have a shake every day of fresh fruits. So Carol Alt's book helped me make my diet a lot greener and healthier. Every day I add a cup or two of spinach or leafy greens to my shake as well as a scoop of Spirulina or Green Vibrance. This makes it super green. At first I started with only one spinach leaf and when I couldn't tell the difference I added more. So my shake gradually turned greener and now I am not grossed out by the color anymore (other people are, by the way).
Alt sets up her book to teach people all about food and what Raw really means. She starts the book with a great introduction which explains how she decided to go on a raw food diet. Guess what, you can eat a lot more than just salad and carrots. Plus you don't need to go 100 percent raw, even 70 percent raw is good. I decided to go raw for two meals a day and eat a regular cooked dinner with my family everyday.
The first chapter was the most valuable for me. It's called Uncooked 101: What you need to know to go raw. This taught me so much about raw food. Raw doesn't necessarily mean cold, it means not cooked over 115 degrees.Read more ›
Carol's book is very easy to understand, and she explains any questions you might have clearly. From equipment, to sprouting, to making kefir (which I had never heard of before but is delicious), she runs you through everything it takes to start going raw. Love this book!

Raw food is a bad idea. You actually get more nutrients from cooked food, and it is easier on the digestion. Chinese medicine highly recommends cooking foods.Published 7 months ago by S. Piper
