Review by Mike Adams
By now, we're all familiar with the health benefits of eating raw foods as part of our diet. But getting started with those raw foods recipes is challenging for many, including myself, because we don't know where to find the best raw foods recipes.
Even when we find some recipes, far too many of them seem to be written for professional chefs, or for people with unlimited time on their hands. I don't know about you, but for me to pay attention to a raw foods recipe book, it needs to present recipes that are quick, simple, healthy and visually appealing at the same time!
That's no small order, but we've found the book that does it: The Raw Gourmet by Nomi Shannon.
This book, available now at Truth Publishing, is a masterful collection of raw foods recipes. In it, you'll discover 223 mouthwatering recipes -- accompanied by gorgeous full-color photography -- that show you how to make:
* Food wraps
* Ice cream
... and a whole lot more, too. It also includes an entire section on sprouting, food combining reference charts and a grocery guide that reveals the best strategies for shopping in a way that maximizes your health benefits while minimizing your grocery bill.

The perfect gift for friends or family Naturally, The Raw Gourmet makes a perfect gift idea due to its spectacular full-color photography. You've never seen raw foods presented like this. The photography by Edmond Fong is superb, and it makes this book something of a work of art just to look at. The size of the book is substantial, too -- a full 8 1/2" by 11".
Give it to a friend who you'd like to see get healthier, and by them sampling just two or three recipes from this book, they can enhance their health with the unique, natural nutrition found only in raw foods.
Did you know that cooking foods destroys much of their nutritional content? Cooking destroys about half the protein of raw foods, as well as many of the phytonutrients. Microwaving broccoli, for example, destroys as much as 98 percent of the anti-cancer compounds that are found naturally in the plant. While steaming some plants helps unlock certain nutrients (such as lycopene in tomatoes), foods deliver far more nutrition overall when they're consumed in raw form.
It doesn't mean we all have to follow a 100 percent raw foods diet (I certainly don't), but it is beneficial to include some raw food component with each meal. For most people, that's the green salad, but in reality, a salad is only the tip of the iceberg lettuce when it comes to raw foods, and until you've seen and tried the recipes in The Raw Gourmet, you don't know what you're missing!
I give this book my own enthusiastic recommendation. It's become the top raw foods recipe book in my own kitchen, and in fact, I plan on sampling a soup recipe from it later today.
Click here to get The Raw Gourmet for yourself or as a gift for a friend or family member. It's a gift you'll be remembered for!
