'Eat Raw, Eat Well' a raw, vegan recipe book that will keep you on track

Every time I receive a new book advocating the benefits of incorporating more raw foods into our diets I am instantly inspired to become a devout raw, vegan foodie. Alas, it never seems to last. Though I do continue to eat a large percentage of raw meals, somewhere along the line I always seem to fall off the raw food wagon. But now I have in my possession a brand new copy of Eat Raw, Eat Well, and I think this may just be the book that manages to keep me on track.

Honestly, this book is enormous, and filled to the brim with hundreds of recipes ranging from the simplest of raw food cuisine, to the more complex and time consuming dishes that I would guess, based on the amazing, color photography throughout, are well worth the effort.

McNish’s knowledge of, and passion for raw, vegan cuisine are evident throughout all 370 plus pages of the book. Covering a wide range of options from breakfast smoothies, soups, and salads, to hearty main courses and seriously delicious looking desserts, I have no doubt that there is absolutely something for everyone amongst its contents. And I can’t wait to try the Spinach and Mushroom Casserole. Let’s get un-cooking!
