For example: When Alissa used her hands, seldom did she wash them. And the cutting/preparation board was never cleaned between foods.
Often there were foods being prepared on top of juice and remains from previous items. Making for a very disgusting, stomach turning work area.
Not once were items measured or recipes given. I almost felt that this was supposed to be a documentary, yet there was no narrator and really too much laughing and direct conversations that really served no purpose. I mean at one point, one of the ladies talked about her boyfriend and how he would not go raw. Who cares? We want to see meal preparation and facts about raw living not personal life details.
I really wanted this to be good but it really was very bad.
Save your money and invest in the DVD by Jennifer Cornbleet or Victoria Boutenko as they are much neater and more instructional.
Other DVDs I'd recommend are Raw Food Made Easy by Jennifer Cornbleet (no conversation in Jennifer's DVD) and Raw For Life: The Ultimate Encyclopedia of the Raw Food Lifestyle by Tony Robbins, Woody Harrelson, Morgan Spurlock, and Reverend Michael Beckith.
While some complained that she didn't wash the cutting board between things - when you're eating organic fresh veggies and fruit, you really don't need to wash between it's okay. Plus there were camera cuts where things were cleaned up and washed (you'll notice it with the food processor. POOF! clean.) So, don't let something like that deter you.
Also, the use of the hands to prepare food. No, no. especially while preparing for others. I have to admit, I do use my hands alot to mix the food - seriously, it works better. But I am preparing for myself. So, I'm not knocking her for that. It's part of preparing raw food. I've seen her wash her hands many times.
Overall - I would have preferred she eliminate the two weird ladies. Other than that - the instruction was okay. It really pushed the point on how easy it is to prepare raw food.
Her book is great with tons of great easy recipes. Get the book and use the video if you really don't know anything about preparing raw.
