It is very informative, science-based, interesting, and even has some excellent recipes at the end!
I am not a raw foodist, but have been interested in incorporating more raw food in my diet for awhile, and have read many raw books. This book is the only one I have read that makes me feel confident that you can eat a nutritionally sound raw diet, as long as you follow the guidelines laid out in this book (such as making sure you are getting your B12 and D, and eating a variety of raw foods).
The book also contains many charts that show at a glance the food value of many fruits and vegetables by listing the vitamins and minerals each contain.
I can't say enough good about this book. It is fantastic!
You don't have to be a total raw food convert to enjoy this book. Even if you're just thinking about adding more healthful raw foods to your diet, I think you'll find this book as useful as I have. It starts out with a history of the raw food movement, gives lots of scientific evidence on why it can be a healthy way of eating, and then goes on to give all kinds of information, things you've probably never even thought about, on incorporating raw foods into your diet or going totally raw. It tells you what you need to know if you do decide to take the plunge, about getting all the nutrients you need.
There is a small section with raw food recipes and another section with full meal menus which I found especially helpful. I'm not looking (yet) to totally adopt this kind of diet but I would like to add a lot more raw food to our everyday meals. The recipes are pretty easy and there are a good variety.Read more ›

Great for clean and healthy eating.
Covers a lot of material and sometimes in very detail, so it could be quite advanced... Read more
