Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Author and publisher state at the outset that they are not responsible for adverse effects resulting from the reader's adoption of Wigmore's Living Food Diet, a nutritional regimen that uses germinated and sprouting seeds. With that prominent caveat, the book goes on to discuss the history of this type of food, a staple in the Orient since ancient days. Wigmore, founder of the Hippocrates Health Institute of Boston, includes lists of seeds for sprouting, directions for maintaining a sprout garden (indoors and out) by various methods, and recipes for food and drinks from the harvest. Clear drawings complement the text. (September)

    One that helped start this

    Ann Wigmore is one many refer back to with the things they present now.

    We use the EasyGreen sprouter - excellent machine - find on web.

    "The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth" is very informative. Good information. We highly recommend "Rainbow Green"; "The Green Foods"; "The Raw Food Revolution Diet"; and "Raw 50" are very informative books. "Complete Idiot's Guide To Eating Raw" is a good book to start with for learning about raw food. It has good recipes and a simple layout.
    We also recommend "The Sprouting Book" by Ann Wigmore; "Ani's Raw" by Ani Phyo (but be careful with using all recipes with nuts - you'll gain weight); all Moosewood books (they are not all raw, but have good raw and not raw recipes) "Moosewood Restaurant Cooks At Home" (best simple starter); "Moosewood Restaurant Daily Special"; "Simple Suppers"; "Moosewood Restaurant Celebrates"; "Sundays At Moosewood Restaurant"; and "Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites" (although I don't recommend "low-fat" - just use healthy fat - you can see the difference "The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth" by Jonny Bowden)
