5.0 out of 5 stars Knowledge is Power, and this book is empowering! Aug. 28 2010
I own dozens of books about raw food, and this one is by far my favorite. It is extremely well researched, well organized, and the author makes the scientific facts easy for the layperson to understand. She also corrects some of the misconceptions that are often presented as facts by raw food adherents, while also correcting misconceptions that are often accepted as facts by many professionals in the medical and diet fields. She sets the record straight about proteins, and amino acids, and enzymes. Brenda does not just spew off her opinion about these matters, but backs up what she says by what has been proven over and over in many experiments and studies. Wow! This part of the book is particularly solid, and leaves the reader convinced about the benefits of raw foods.

The book also contains many charts that show at a glance the food value of many fruits and vegetables by listing the vitamins and minerals each contain.

I can't say enough good about this book. It is fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Raw Book I Have Read April 20 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book!
It is very informative, science-based, interesting, and even has some excellent recipes at the end!
I am not a raw foodist, but have been interested in incorporating more raw food in my diet for awhile, and have read many raw books. This book is the only one I have read that makes me feel confident that you can eat a nutritionally sound raw diet, as long as you follow the guidelines laid out in this book (such as making sure you are getting your B12 and D, and eating a variety of raw foods).
Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for clean and healthy eating. Sept. 1 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Well researched with solid material.

Great for clean and healthy eating.

Covers a lot of material and sometimes in very detail, so it could be quite advanced for the layman, but still absorbable if you have to take your time like I do.

5.0 out of 5 stars The essential guide for a raw food lifestyle May 26 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This is so much more than a simple raw food cookbook or commentary on raw food diets. I was surprised at the amount of information packed into this book. It has all sorts of nutritional information and easy to read tables on just about anything you can imagine relating to this way of eating. Here are just a few titles of the tables included: Research summary of the effects of cooking on phytochemicals, Calories, protein, fat, carbohydrate and water in raw food (6 pages long), Fatty acid composition of selected foods, Vitamins in raw foods, Minerals in raw foods, Vitamins A,C,E,K, and D: adult dietary reference intakes and intakes on raw and high-raw diets. And those are just a few. I like tables because I can get information at a glance and compare different values so this is really a good book for me.

You don't have to be a total raw food convert to enjoy this book. Even if you're just thinking about adding more healthful raw foods to your diet, I think you'll find this book as useful as I have. It starts out with a history of the raw food movement, gives lots of scientific evidence on why it can be a healthy way of eating, and then goes on to give all kinds of information, things you've probably never even thought about, on incorporating raw foods into your diet or going totally raw. It tells you what you need to know if you do decide to take the plunge, about getting all the nutrients you need.

There is a small section with raw food recipes and another section with full meal menus which I found especially helpful. I'm not looking (yet) to totally adopt this kind of diet but I would like to add a lot more raw food to our everyday meals. The recipes are pretty easy and there are a good variety.
