The Power of Living Raw
A raw food diet is one that will improve your immediate and long-term physical and mental health, provide you with more energy and vitality, help you to lose weight, reduce you risk of disease, and promote a holistic lifestyle in which your body is in tune with nature and the seasons.
“Cooking food at temperatures above 115°C (240°F) destroys its natural enzymes, denaturing it and stopping us
from receiving the maximum nutritional benefits that food in its raw and natural state offers.”
Author Nicky Arthur presents a host of delicious recipes to try, most of which can be enjoyed raw. From breakfast dishes, grains and salads, to soups, dips, snacks, main courses and desserts, there are recipes here for everyday eating as well as entertaining.
The Power of Living Raw provides recipes can be prepared quickly and easily with the aid of a kitchen dehydrator or by using the lowest setting on a standard electric oven. Try the raw version of pizza, pasta, sourdough breads, cakes and pancakes. There are recipes too for healing drinks such as spiced teas, vegetable and fruit juices and satisfying smoothies.
Making the transition to a raw food diet has never been easier!
