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.
