Overview

Who doesn’t want to look leaner, feel stronger, and be happier? Few people would doubt that the food we consume plays a major role in our well-being. The raw food movement proclaims that the secret to great health is not just in what we eat, but in how it’s prepared—eating raw provides our bodies with the nutrients and enzymes they need to thrive.

Raw Food: A Healthier, Simpler Life in Three Weeks contains three-, seven-, and twenty-one-day programs—each full of delicious recipes—that give you the opportunity to decide just how much change is right for you right now. Erica Palmcrantz Aziz also emphasizes the importance of choosing organic ingredients that enable the body to cleanse itself while improving the quality of the earth’s ecosystem.

Give your body the chance to get back to its natural balance. Eat raw for just a few weeks and you’ll begin to understand your eating habits (good or bad), and how factors like activity, sleep, and emotions govern what you eat. Equipped with a deeper understanding of how food affects you, and armed with a fantastic collection of easy recipes, you’ll be feeling great in no time!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Every few years the raw-food fad returns with claims of being more natural and healthful than more traditional fare. Aziz (coauthor, Raw Food: A Complete Guide for Every Meal of the Day) offers this beautifully illustrated volume with her take on the subject. A diet of raw foods increases intestinal motility, which may be a good thing for many people—though not all. Some nutrients are lost in the cooking process, but others, in carrots, for example, are modified so that the body can absorb them, as it cannot do when those foods are raw. Claims about the detoxifying benefits of raw foods are largely unproven, but Aziz is quite sensible on this subject, advising readers to make the switch slowly and to check with their doctors before they begin. A variety of appetizing recipes is provided, and anyone might profitably incorporate these into an existing diet. VERDICT This will be popular with the health food crowd, though of marginal interest to others.—Susan B. Hagloch, formerly with Tuscarawas Cty. P.L., New Philadelphia, OH
