For someone who loves to cook, Natasha Kyssa's kitchen is strangely bereft of appliances. No stove. No microwave. No set of T-Fal frying pans.... What she cooks--if you can call it that--is raw.... Raw food has slowly gained credibility and followers, notably celebrities like Demi Moore and Sting. And they may be on to something. A 2005 study by the University of Washington School of Medicine found that when compared to those on the Standard American Diet, raw foodists had less chronic inflammation, lower cholesterol, and less IGF-1, a growth factor that, when elevated, is associated with increased risk of breast and prostate cancers.
Reading the preface to The Simply Raw Living Foods Detox Manual
is enough to make a reader want to give detox a shot. Ms. Kyssa is obviously beautiful, as shown in the book's photograph, but did not come to healthy living easily. Her prior battles with eating disorders, cigarette smoking and weight gain show that she knows what it's like to succumb to unhealthy temptations and struggle with food-related addictions. Her healthy lifestyle today is testament to the success of this program. Recipes in the back will appeal to readers who do not wish to commit to the full month's system but would like to incorporate healthier raw foods into their diet.
Compact and comprehensive.... Kyssa covers much ground via a gradual approach that commences with a vegan, 80-percent-raw diet and progesses toward completely live foods.
