You might also notice early on that this is a book of love. Shazzie, the UK's most famous raw foodist, wrote this book with a mother's love for her daughter. She researched the content for four years with the passion that only a mother would feel about this topic. Painstakingly recording her daughter's food intake, staying on top of the lastest finds in the world of raw and vegan foods, researching supplements, and finding answers when people told her she had no reason to search for answers: Shazzie goes beyond a typical nutritionist giving stats.
For this reason alone, I would say that every vegan and certainly every raw vegan should own this book. Even if you never intend to raise children as raw vegans, you will find information in here that applies to adults as well. As a Medical Intuitive with a fairly large raw food following, I encounter many, many clients who already follow either a raw or long-term vegan diet. This way of eating offers amazing benefits: just look at the glowing skin, boundless energy and vitality in Raw Spirit Festival photos or YouTube videos. In my own life, I have found raw and vegan foods a wonderful support for mental clarity and energy, allowing me to function at higher levels than I did pre-"permanent"-brain-injury. So, yes, I am a fan. But ...
and this is a big BUT, in my work, among friends, and even in my own life, I have witnessed enough to know that this diet also requires quite a bit of knowledge.Read more ›
If you are looking for a more accessible raw recipe book for young children (while waiting for your special order ingredients to arrive), I also recommend Baby Greens: A Live-Food Approach for Children of All Ages by Michaela Lynn
She is a true believer in superfoods and supplements. I'm more keen on fresh rather than a whole lot of expensive superfoods like E3Live that I cannot afford. I don't necessarily want to spend an arm and a leg on all these ingredients like purple corn extract, maca, raw olives, crystal manna, Enjevita,Blue manna, marine phytoplankton, salba, Etherium Gold (seriously?? Come on now..), ginseng powder, pumpkin oil, raw hempseed butter, lucuma and mesquite, nopal cactus powder, raw cacao butter, Etherium pink powder, otto rose oil, Gillian McKeith's Living Food Energy powder, he shou wu (???)...and the list goes on.
Seagreens and Clearspring Sea Salad are only available in the UK, not the US.
And the list she gives for supplementing children babies is again based on superfoods and expensive supplements. I personally would never give my baby maca root powder, tahini, hempseeds, coconut, etc. He's too young for these potentially highly allergenic foods. I've made Shazzie's recipes before from her other books, which I have, and many of them are not to my liking.
So chances are slim I will make many of these recipes. But it is nice to have in my collection.

I was saddened to see that more people have not read this book, as a 100 % vegan diet is very dangerous for children, no matter how well they are fed. Read morePublished 21 months ago by Kindle Customer
