about

Following a vegan, raw foods diet does not mean you have to give up your favorite delicacies or condemn yourself to a life of celery and carrot sticks. As renowned raw foods chef Matt Amsden reveals in this vibrant, inspiring book, raw cuisine represents the discovery and innovative use of luscious natural ingredients. From imaginative new dishes such as cactus salad, onion bread, and spirulina pie, to tantalizing variations on everything from pizza, tacos, and cookies, to the signature "Big Matt with Cheese," Amsden's mouthwatering recipes feature soups, sauces, salads, appetizers, entrees, and even desserts.

More than a cookbook, RAWvolution is the indispensable, all-inclusive guide to the many powerful benefits of raw food. Beginning with his personal account of "How I Went Raw," Amsden shares essential advice, information, and encouragement for adopting a raw foods lifestyle. His delectable recipes are organized by type, level of difficulty, and what equipment, if any, is necessary in their creation. Accessible to both beginners and experienced cooks, RAWvolution addresses everyone from vegetarians who want to take the next step in natural cuisine, to those who simply want to diversify and improve their everyday diet.

There has never been a more important time to incorporate raw foods into your lifestyle. Raw, vegan cuisine is making news daily, providing healthy and nutritious alternatives that are changing lives. Best of all, raw food can be delicious. There is no need to sacrifice flavor for bland and boring "health" food. Enliven your senses and taste buds instead with rich, living cuisine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An inspiring introduction to raw foods! I'll preface to say that I'm not a pure raw eater. I'm not even vegan or a veggie. In fact, I just had some bacon. However, I wanted to find new ways of adding healthy, natural veggie, fruit and nut-based foods into my diet and Matt Amsden's RAWvolution was a lovely intro to the world of raw / living food cuisine. Of the raw foods books I've seen, this one features recipes that are the easiest to engage in. The ingredient lists aren't overly lengthy and the instructions are pretty straight forward. That said, it's no Joy of Cooking. You need access to several ingredients that aren't likely in your current cupboard (if you're me - the non-vegan!) - in fact, some might not be in basic grocery stores. Items like agave nectar, carob powder, Nama Shoyu (organic soy sauce), Thai coconut water and raw sunflower seeds are considered staples in this book. Additionally, you'll find recipes that call for appliances that are a big step up from a toaster. We're talking dehydrators, juicers and grinders. But if you have a well-equipped kitchen (or eager for an excuse to have one) and live in a city that offers wonderful access to a variety of foods - the recipes in this book will be a cinch and a delight to the palate. Raw eating is certainly different from the norm, but the flavours you experience from the recipes of RAWvolution are wonderful. As a plus, this book features beautiful photography (which actually sells the food, especially if the ingredients are foreign to you), easy to understand symbols and a nice layout. The guacamole recipe is to die for, the onion bread is worth the wait, and the apple cookies are a pure delight. I'm looking forward to trying the rest!
