By Joanna Daneman #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 4, 2012
Format: Paperback
This book has recipes for raw foods, that is, foods not heated past around 115 degrees F, to preserve natural enzymes and keep proteins in their natural, undenatured state. According to some, this provides the maximum health benefits from "live" foods and cooking deadens foods.

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.

The first raw food book I ever read back in 2008 was "Raw 50" by Carol Alt. The first raw food dish I made from her book I thought, "I could eat this way forever". Because her writing was my very first exposure to raw food, I read more and more and tried different methods of raw food (Natalia Rose, Norman Walker, etc). I realized how fortunate I was to pick up her fun, wise and uplifting book and quickly collected everything written by her. She's a minority voice in the raw food world advocating raw dairy and raw meat and god bless her for it:) Kefir (made with raw goat or cow milk) is amazing and my kids (ages 19 months and 5 years old) absolutely love it. Carol's writing is so intelligent and packed with information and down to earth - her books are just such a wealth of information and positivity. All this and she's just stunning to boot - who doesn't want to look like a knock-out just by changing the way you eat?

I am a health nut and am obsessed with eating real, healthy food although I cheat once in awhile. I always take my vitamins and try to exercise every now and then. I am going through menopause and have discovered that I have to eat healthy or I won't feel good. I will have horrible headaches, sleepless nights and a host of other symptoms. In my quest to be healthier, I picked up Carol Alt's book Easy Sexy Raw. I tend to feel the best when eating raw.

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.

I've been interested in raw eating for about 20 years but never got around to trying it. Then I saw Carol on a TV special about ageing models. She still looked amazing so I thought I would get on to this raw business. Carol's book is a good introduction to raw eating - it's not hard-core, she includes raw meats and dairy as well as vegetables and is very forgiving about a few cooked foods! But as soon as I started having a green smoothie in the mornings, I quickly graduated to all raw within a couple of weeks. Now I am completely raw - it's addictive! I look better, feel great, have lost kilos in all the right places.
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!
