Mimi is beautiful, inside and out. I love that she shares her travel experiences and how she is influenced by different cultures in the preparation of her meals. The pictures in the book are beautiful, and the words she shares are so inspiring to me. I first purchased her original book, "Live Raw, Raw Food Recipes for Good Health and Timeless Beauty", and enjoyed it so much,I purchased this book for myself and for a friend, who was also thrilled with the book. I don't always eat healthy, and am not a raw vegan, but there are so many recipes that nudge and encourage me to implement more healthy and raw foods into my diet. Thank you, Mimi, for taking the time to inspire others, and to do so with the love that is felt in every page of your beautiful book!
