Living with Green Power: A Gourmet Collection of Living Food Recipes

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy a juicer and dehydrator 1st before getting this book!, April 15 2000
This was the first raw food cookbook we got. We purchased it at the same time as our Green Life juicer, which is necessary for "cooking" with this book, as well as a dehydrator for some recipes. Everything we have tried so far has been exceptional. Not any one recipe stands out, since all we have tried has far exceded our expectations for raw food. Preparing food this way is so incredibly different, we never knew raw food could taste this good. One thinks of salads and fresh apples when one thinks of raw food. There are recipes for juices, drinks, cold soups, seed cheeses, dressings, dips & pates, loafs, crackers, porridge, breads, and endless sweets and desserts. Since using Elsya's Green Life book, it has turned us on to eatting in the raw, and hopefully one day we will reach our goal and be able to call ourselves raw-foodists.

5.0 out of 5 stars compassionate and insighful, April 15 2000
John Robbins is a great author. Everyone must read this if they are not a vegetarian or do not understand or respect the intelligence of our fellow creatures who share this earth. Robbins' sensitive look into the meat industry and the propoganda behind it sheds light on the coruptness and greed of the business, not to mention the deception and lengths for which they are willing to go to keep certain information virtually hidden from the masses.
The second half of the book is filled with wonderful recipes. Not a bad one yet...best thing is, it's vegan. The cream of broccoli soup is absolutely the best, and no one can believe there is no dairy in it! I reccommend this book to everyone. After reading this book, one must go on to read Robbins other book, Diet for a New America.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reference Book, April 10 2000
I have both this book and the other(Pres. for Nutritional Healing). I have found this book to be a great resource. I recommend it to all my friends and family whom I am trying to turn on to nutrition. It is a great "starter book" for people just into diet and nutrition and want to be educated about the things they put into their bodies. It is very informative and an easy read. It is a must for everybody out there wanting to learn about food, their bodies, and how they interact. A wonderful book.
