Finally a good recipe book for someone new to a Raw way of eating. The recipes are not complicated and taste good.
I can honestly say, that I' m still on the raw diet because I have this book. I have tried some other books and almost dropped the whole idea because the food tasted like a punishment. I underttand that eating raw is very healthy, but if it doesn't taste good, I don't see myself sticking to it. The flexibility of the recipes is a big plus as at the beginning you may not know how to sub some ingredients that you don't have on hand. So I'm very happy with the book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a healthier way of eating.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute must-have! March 9 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We have many raw food and cooked food recipe books and I have found since purchasing Practically Raw it is our new favourite by far! For the past month I have used nothing but this book and I am delighted. The recipes are easy and consistently yummy too. What makes this book different is that the author has included food substitutions which is very, very handy as well as cooking and dehydrating instructions.

In the past I have spent days dehydrating recipes from other books just to have the final product taste terrible. With this book you can try the recipe cooked in your oven first and if you like it then the next time you can dehydrate (which makes the recipe taste even better!)

We used to hate kale but the kale chips recipes in the book are worth the cost alone.

I strongly recommend Practically Raw for anyone, even those that cannot eat nuts as seeds are used as well. For beginners or for those that want to own two great, simple, and reliable recipe books I would recommend Practically Raw and Raw Food Made Easy by Jennifer Cornbleet. They are the only books I use regularly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good cookbook July 29 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like this book, everything is healthy. seems author really knows and cares about eating healthy. recipes are simple enough but not too simple to make the outcome actually appetizing and that's what i want! i like how she gives substitution options and how there are cooked recipes which are still healthy. this book is the first raw food book i purchased because of the ratings AND because it really did capture my interest when i had a sample look inside. i only started eating raw foods because i have IBS, and it was suggested from someone. i'd definitely recommend it to anyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars I really want to like this book Dec 10 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
You know, I really want to like this book but I haven't made a single recipe in it. I think Amber is a great writer. She's obviously very passionate about raw food and I think she's tried really hard to create recipes that are within reach of amateur cooks who want to venture into raw territory. She's also provided options for many of the recipes that include cooking so if you don't have a food dehydrator, you can still make the recipe. The book itself is nice with great paper, great photos, and Amber's commentary on all the recipes.

I guess I felt many of the recipes were still a bit 'out there'. I don't really have time for, or care to strain yogurt, for example, and I'm not interested in soaking nuts overnight. I flipped through this a couple of times because I was really excited about adding raw food to my diet but there just wasn't anything in there that grabbed me. Maybe I didn't realize that 'raw' is more work and I had too high expectations. I can't really give this a thumbs up or down. From my research, it does seem like it's the most accessible of the raw cookbooks.
