Overview

Nearly twenty years ago, thanks to a raw food diet, Carol Alt cured a world of headaches, stomach issues, and fatigue and became healthier, more energetic, and slimmer than she’s ever been. In Easy Sexy Raw she shares how anyone can experience the benefits of the uncooked lifestyle.
           
Carol takes all of the intimidation out of going raw, providing straightforward advice, easy tips, and 130 super-simple and delicious recipes that will make the transition a snap. Useful tools—such as a swapping list of raw substitutes for favorite cooked items and a “Turn It Raw” section that shows you how to gradually convert favorite dishes to raw (even chocolate chip cookies!)—will help both new and seasoned raw eaters to build a recipe repertoire. And the dishes, including contributions by raw food authorities and chefs like Ani Phyo, Sarma Melngailis, and Raw Chef Dan, are tasty and filling—even for those who are just trying out raw for the first time:

   • Yellow Squash Fettuccine with Creamy Pine Nut Alfredo, Lemon Basil, and Green Olives
   • Good Stuff by Mom & Me’s Salad Pizza with Tomato Sauce
   • Gingery Squash and Coconut Noodle Soup
   • Indian-Style Papaya Salad
   • Abundance Burgers with Marinated Mushrooms and Jícama Fries
   • Apple Marzipan Pie
   • Triple Orange Salad with Pistachios and Mint 
   • Maya Chocolate Pie
Carol offers tips on the best equipment to use; demystifies methods like soaking, sprouting, and dehydrating; and even discusses raw dairy, good and bad fats, and which sweeteners are best for your body.

Easy Sexy Raw
is the must-have primer for anyone who wants a healthier lifestyle and a natural way to feel sexier and more beautiful.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“I’m very impressed with this book. I’ve done this my whole life and Carol has made it easy and fun to help others transition to awesome health and well-being.”
—Dr. Timothy Brantley, PhD, naturopath and author of the New York Times bestseller The Cure
 
“Carol Alt is not only a supermodel, she's also a superhero! And as you'll discover within these pages, superheroes are fueled by super nutrition. Carol Alt tells you how she keeps her raw edge and how you can too with the best foods ever!”
—David Wolfe, author of Eating for Beauty and Superfoods: The Food and Medicine of the Future
 
“If you want to look like Carol Alt, read this book! In it, Carol shares her secrets for looking younger and more beautiful and feeling healthier. She shows you how simple it is to include healthy, raw foods in your diet. Easy Sexy Raw is a must-have for every kitchen.”
—Ani Phyo, author of Ani’s 15-Day Fat Blast
 
“Carol is the ultimate glowing example of how a clean, raw diet equates to looking and feeling younger and sexier. She is passionate about helping others reach their own potential for good health, and with her third book full of simple recipes and helpful tips, she continues this inspiring journey.”
—Sarma Melngailis, author of Living Raw Food and Raw Food Real World
Library Journal
Intending her latest cookbook to be the sort of primer she wished for when she first began a raw-food diet 15 years ago, supermodel Alt here covers more basics and provides more recipes, tips, and resources than in her previous two books (Eating in the Raw; The Raw 50). Most of these easy-to-make recipes use common ingredients, and Alt offers helpful information on purchasing, health properties, and more. She is one of the few omnivorous raw-food authors and uses raw dairy, eggs, seafood, and red meat. Readers may want to confirm Alt's various health claims with research of their own. VERDICT This title shares common ground with other basic raw cookbooks. Judita Wignall's Going Raw is still a standout for demystifying raw kitchen techniques. Fans of Alt's previous books will want this, and those interested in eating raw but not vegan will be intrigued.—Jude Baldwin, Shasta Coll. Lib., Redding, CA

Easy Sexy Raw

130 Raw Food Recipes, Tools, and Tips to Make You Feel Gorgeous and Satisfied
By Carol Alt

Clarkson Potter

ISBN: 9780307888693

Quinoa and Pesto–Stuffed Tomatoes
 
Serves 4; makes 4 stuffed tomato halves
 
2 medium tomatoes
Sea salt
1 ½ cups sprouted quinoa
1⁄3 cup pesto
Freshly ground black pepper
Cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
4 fresh basil leaves
Shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (optional)
 
Cut the tomatoes in half crosswise and scoop out the flesh. Set the shells aside. Strain the flesh through a fine-mesh strainer into a bowl, pressing on the flesh to extract all the tomato juice. Reserve the juice for another use and chop the tomato flesh and set aside.
 
Rub a little salt into the insides of the tomato shells and place upside down on a paper towel–lined plate. Set aside for 30 minutes so the tomatoes soften a bit.
 
In a medium bowl, combine the tomato flesh and quinoa. Add the pesto and stir to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the quinoa mixture into the tomato halves and drizzle with oil. Top each one with a basil leaf and some cheese, if using.
