You will see some in-depth nutritional information within this book as well as recipes for dishes ranging from raw to steamed or lightly cooked dishes.”
“Victoria Boutenko has teamed up with Elaina Love and Chad Sarno for her latest offering on raw food diets. … Raw & Beyond reaches the conclusion that the majority of raw foodist have an excess of Omega-6s and a deficiency in Omega-3s and to resolve this issue steamed and ‘lightly cooked’ foods should be added to a raw food diet.”

While I don't believe in a one size fits all nutritional approach, I do think there are basics that people should build on to create a healthy lifestyle. Once those basics are fulfilled, then of course tweak it however your body can handle it. I guess the operative word here is "Paradigm". The title states "Transforming the Raw Food Paradigm", but I certainly didn't get a clear paradigm being established from the information presented, nor was it carried through the recipes being offered. I would save your money on this one. There are many other fabulous raw cookbooks out there that are much more interesting and beautifully presented. If you're looking for some serious information on how to meet your bodies nutritional requirements while pursuing a raw diet life style, with recipes that are truly Omega-3 rich (sans the nuts, oils and sugars) this isn't it. I wish I could make a recommendation, but I just haven't found a book like that yet.
Victoria's information on Omega 3s & 6s is eye-opening - I honestly didn't know the difference before! Now I know that we should try to get more 3s & less 6s (which is abundant in many more things) in our diet. Elaina Love's notes on balancing raw and cooked food for our health was really helpful also.
Chad Sarno's warnings about too many 'fractionated' foods, like coconut and olive oil, agave, and maple syrup, was VERY valuable! Like him, I couldn't understand why I had high cholesterol when I was mostly eating only raw foods. Now I know to stay away from ANY oils, even so-called virgin raw ones, and instead substitute natural fat like avocado.
Some of the recipes are good but many of them are heavy on walnuts and walnut oil, and flaxseed oil, which seems to me to defeat the purpose of reducing oils!
All in all, a very enlightening and helpful book.
I totally agree with the authors that the typical raw food diet is way too high in omega-6s. In fact, I wrote a book about that myself!I also agree that it's good to eat certain vegetables in both the raw and steamed form.
The best part of the book is a chart that includes the ratio of omega-3s to 6s in oils, seeds, and greens. Greens are touted as high in omega-3s. However, the authors didn't point out that they are so low in fat that they are really not a good source.
