Format: Paperback
I normally don't write reviews at all, but this book certainly deserves one. The highlights:
* It doesn't consists of all these sweet recipes but has great tasting alternatives (I could never get into all that sweet stuff); there are no dates, bananas, etc., and there are some good explanations as to why
* The recipes don't require a lot of strange ingredients of which I never even heard before; ingredients are easily found
* You don't have to plan days ahead of time to just produce one dish; a lot of it can be put together quickly
* It does have its share of nuts, but for some reason I don't resent that here as I did in most of my other books; they don't seem to be everywhere
* There are NO wheat recipes (yeah!); I'm terribly allergic to that... Instead there are lots of recipes with flax seeds, and there is a very good explanation as to why wheat/grains are not used.
I ordered two other books at the same time I got this one and I already owned two raw food books, but this one is the only one I use. The recipes appeal to me much more than the ones in the other books. There still are tools that are necessary for the raw food kitchen, like a dehydrator, juicer, high-speed blender, etc., but there is a section in the beginning that outlines which ones they recommend.

I received my copy hot off the press only a few days ago and already it is quite evident that Gabriel and the Tree of Life chefs have provided us with the best live-food book currently existing. The few recipes I have tried are outstanding, and I am having a difficult time deciding which to try next, since all of them appeal to me.
Perhaps the single best thing about this book are Gabriel's updates concerning live-food nutrition. Though he frequently cites Conscious Eating for a more thorough discussion of many topics, Gabriel also extends his previous theoretical insights with new, exciting evidence published for the first time. His extended discussion of mycosis and the concept of a "compost button" vis-a-vis body metabolism are particularly intriguing. For instance, Gabriel cites the brilliant work of Dr. Robert Young (cf the book, Sick and Tired?) as support for the fact that high-glycemic foods, including many of our favorite raw fruits (e.g. dates, mangoes, bananas, etc.), create biological conditions favorable for the proliferation in our blood of bacteria, yeasts, fungus, molds and other nasties whose primary function is to compost dead matter. So long as we continue eating foods that undermine the vibrancy of our internal biological terrain, our "compost button" remains switched "on" and organisms which compromise our health continue their nasty business. Gabriel provides vivid evidence of this process of degeneration by presenting a series of color photographs that clearly show, via darkfield microscopy, the breakdown of our red blood cells and the proliferation of bacteria, yeasts, fungus and molds.

I've been eating raw for over a month now, only using this book and still haven't managed to eat all the recipes. I find my-self asking constantly: Is this REALLY a raw food dish? You'd never believe you were eating living cuisine.
Most praise this book for it's simlicity. I personally don't find it exactly simple but then again I have never used any other raw uncook book before. I'm dissapointed to some degree though and sometimes feel chained to my kitchen. At times like that I simple look for a quick recipe and just throw something together and guess what...it still tastes amazing.
I love the first part of the book as well. It's wonderful to see how complete his research is and to be encouraged to make raw cuisine personal to your body, mind and spiritual needs. Most people don't eat raw the right way because they don't know there's a better way. Cousens does and he's not afraid to share it!
Buy this book, change your life.

How to transform your life in record time with
the most delicious and energetic food on the
planet! This book is an essential addition to
the library of any serious student of health.
It is my favorite book on health and nutrition.
It also contains some of the best recipes I've made.

If you want to learn about health, you must study
those who have mastered the art of healthy living.
You must look to the world's best health and healing
retreats: "The Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center" in
Arizona, and "Hippocrates Health Institute" in Florida.

Brian Clement is the director of Hippocrates and his
book, Living Foods for Optimum Health, is required
reading. Dr. Gabriel Cousens is the director of the
Tree of Life. Rainbow Green contains the diet used at
the Tree of Life for healing and rejuvenation.

I use the recipes in Rainbow Green daily. The cakes,
cookies, soups, salad dressings, nut milks, pates,
sauces, fermented foods, crackers, and other recipes
are easy and delicious. I also enjoy making the vegan
kefir drinks, KimChi, and essential oil delicacies.

Rainbow Green discusses how there are microscopic
organisms in the blood such as yeast, mold, fungus,
and bacteria. These organisms enter the blood through
various food and beverages and they contribute to poor
health. They they are fed by foods high in sugar, and
they thrive in an acidic body.

In Rainbow Green you'll discover how to alkalinize your
body to prevent the microorganisms from growing. You'll
discover which foods to eat and which to avoid for
optimal health. Rainbow Green foods are classified low-
glycemic, high-mineral, and high-vibrational foods.
