The book offers fantastic nutritional information and answers the age old question of "How do you get your protein?' There is a section on the kitchen tools you will need to help make prep a breeze. It's no surprise that my favorite part of the book is the fact that it is full of gorgeous pictures and fantastic tutorials in living color! Oh and lets not forget the recipes! Each recipe includes prep times and when necessary, soaking and drying times to make it easy to plan. There are recipes for juices, smoothies, breakfast, lunch, dinner, salads, soups, desserts and snacks. All the bases are covered in colorful healthy fashion.
My pictures don't hold a candle to Judita's, but here they are. From Going Raw:
Blueberry Cream Green Smoothie (pg.61)
The crazy dark color is from the optional spirulina I added. Contrary to the way it looks, it was sweet, creamy and delicious.
Cucumber Gazpacho (pg. 90)
This was a must as we had a lot of cucumbers coming out of the garden. It took no time at all to whip this up and it made enough for a couple of days. This light refreshing dish is perfection in hot weather.
Orange-Chocolate Mousse Parfait (pg. 130)
This is some serious dessert. It is so rich and decadent. It's creamy texture was incredible! I only needed a small portion to satisfy my sweet tooth.
