April 13, 2012

Book review

The authors offer science-based answers to tough questions about raw foods and raw diets.

by Brenda Davis, R.D. and Vesanto Melina, M.S., R.D.

The raw food movement is gaining in popularity. Claims of amazing cures, spectacular weight loss, and increased energy and vitality have fueled interest … and concern.

The acclaimed authors of Becoming Vegan and The New Becoming Vegetarian present the first authoritative look at the science behind raw food diets. They have taken the challenge of separating fact from fiction and dispelling common myths that surround raw vegan diets.

The book is written for anyone who wants to eat more raw foods, either to lose weight, fight chronic health problems, or benefit from the high level of nutrients in uncooked and sprouted foods.

The authors offer science-based answers to tough questions about raw foods and raw diets, furnish nutrition guidelines and practical information, and show how to construct a raw diet that meets recommended nutrient intakes — simply and easily.

A section of more than 45 recipes provides dishes for any time of day and even special occasions. A nutritional analysis is given for each recipe.

The book also includes information on how to meet recommended intakes for every nutrient, along with nutrition guidelines, a glossary, references, resources and an index.
