Win a copy of "Raw Food for Everyone!"

I was so excited when I was contacted and asked if I wanted to give away a copy of Alissa Cohen's newest book, "Raw Food For Everyone." I've been a huge fan of Cohen's, ever since I laid my hands on her first book, "Living Food."

book


What a great second book this is. What I love about it is that it's a very tangible and usable book for almost any home cook. The problem I have with most raw food books is that they use all sorts of fancy ingredients and equipment that most kitchens aren't stocked with, unless you just happen to be a raw vegan. As someone who dabbles with eating raw as much as I can, I'm not always in the mood to make a recipe that requires special ingredients that require a trip to my local health food store and 48 hours of prep and cook time.

Now don't get me wrong - like her first book, this definitely has some recipes that will require some time. But it's a great mix of easy, quick recipes and more gourmet, intensive recipes.

The book starts with chapters on soaking, sprouting, why raw foods are good for you, etc. Then it moves into the recipes. There are some great cheese recipes, pickles, smoothies, crackers and wraps - you name it, it's probably in here. Whether you're a raw foodist, a vegan, or just interested in raw food, this is definitely a great book to have in your library!

Alright, now that I've gone on long enough, let's get to the good part.

None of the above, but I'm definitely curious! Love my veggies, and look for any excuse to eat them. I've wanted to do more exploration into the raw food lifestyle! Thanks for the giveaway!

Been a vegetarian for over 32 years now. I would probably be vegan if hubby were open to it but guess I am lucky he eats veg at home otherwise he would not eat at all. He sneaks off for steaks etc when he can. I could live on fresh raw veggies for weeks at a time.

I eat low carb---but I do incorporate all veggie meals and raw meals often....love your blog!

Emily said...

I'm a 19 year old nutrition student, and I have been a strict vegan for four years. I have been gluten-free for the past six months, and I recently started a small farmer's market business that specializes in vegan and gluten free foods. I would love to learn more about the raw food movement and incorporate it into my own diet and my business in the future.

I consider myself a conscientious omnivore. I buy my produce local and organic, I buy my meat from local ranches that adhere to husbandry and humane standards, and fish that is only on the Monterey Fish Guide approval list. I go Vegan once a year for a month and try to eat raw at least once or twice a week. My dehydrator and juicers never get put away, and I find endless new things to make in them....speaking of which , smoothie time.

Yvonne said...

Vegan, but a bit curious for raw.
Would like to try raw without needing to buy expensive equipment.

Vegetarian, but I keep my house vegan. I have been reading a lot about raw diets over the last year.

I've been both vegan and vegetarian and currently consider myself a conscious fish/poultry eater. Love my veggies though, and raw food, especially when I get to play with my dehydrator.

None of the above but looking for ways to incorporate more raw fruits and veggies in my family's diet. Also I want to support my mom who is very into the raw food diet. I would love to be able to surprise her with some great recipes!

split between vegan and raw. would love the book!

Christine said...

vegan/raw combo and my true love tolerates but is a meat and fries man. i try to balance our 2 worlds so chickens show up occasionally, enjoy experimenting with the raw 'uncookbooks' just made cashew/date balls and date coconut rolls as my sweet snacks to help me avoid the halloween candy ambushing me.

Denise Michaels - Adventurous Foodie said...

Nice to know there's a cookbook that'll give cooks the freedom to dabble in eating raw without the commitment of buying special equipment, etc. After all, it's not a religion or anything. It's just food. *smile* Thanks for the opportunity.

I have been a strict vegan for over 6 years now.
