"With this full-color, photograph-filled cookbook, raw food
devotees and newcomers alike can enjoy delicious and healthy raw
recipes that are rich in cancer-fighting and heart-healthy
ingredients. The book covers the importance of enzymes in
metabolism, the effects of processed foods, and the environmental
benefits of going raw."
--Taste for Life magazine "This book is a great hardcover, with amazing pictures and in a simple, easy to use, format... While there are some great simple recipes, like asparagus with a raw hummus or olive tapenade, there are also some more advanced dishes like a Chili sin Carne (kind of like a raw jambalaya)."
--Ridgefield Wellness "I read cookbooks like novels and absolutely devoured The Art of Raw Food. The information provided within the book is so eloquent and the photography is so simple and striking. ... It is clear that the recipes in the book are meant to enrich, satisfy, and energize our bodies naturally. ... This un-cookbook has definitely earned a permanent spot on my bookshelf."
