While the raw food diet is the fastest growing alternative approach to eating because of its health benefits, preparing raw food dishes is so new that many people don’t know where to start. With 500 color photos, this friendly, step-by-step guide gently walks readers through recipes to create amazingly delicious and nutritious meals. Victoria Boutenko and her family are known worldwide as the Raw Family, living on a raw diet and teaching classes since 1994. Throughout the years they have perfected scores of scrumptious recipes with the idea of not only spreading the gospel of the diet’s health benefits, but also making the raw foods lifestyle realistically possible and enjoyable.Mouth-watering rather than medicinal, simple rather than complicated, the recipes presented here include jams, scones, soup, crackers, nut milk, truffles, chocolate cake, mousse cake, and more. Complete, illustrated directions make it simple for both avid raw foodists and novice cooks alike to embrace the diet favored by Woody Harrelson, Demi Moore, Donna Karan, and other celebrities.
Everyone knows they need to eat more fruits and vegetables, but consuming even the minimum FDA-recommended five servings a day can be challenging. In Green for Life, raw foods pioneer Victoria Boutenko presents an overlooked powerhouse of nutrition in this equation: greens. For their bounty of minerals and nutrients, greens exceed other vegetables in value. Green for Life details the immense health benefits of greens and suggests an easy way to consume them in sufficient quantities: the green smoothie. This quick, simple drink benefits everyone, regardless of lifestyle, diet, or environment. Green smoothies eliminate toxins, correct nutritional deficiencies, and are delicious as well. Green for Life includes the latest information on the abundance of protein in greens, the benefits of fiber, the role of greens in homeostasis, the significance of stomach acid, how greens make the body more alkaline, the healing power of chlorophyll, and more. Also included are the results of a pilot study demonstrating the effectiveness of adding just one quart of green smoothies a day to one’s diet, without changing anything else in dietary intake. Green smoothie testimonials and recipes give readers confidence and motivation in exploring green smoothies for themselves. This updated edition offers important new research on the role that omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids play in metabolic health and includes nutritional data on select green smoothies and updated findings on organic versus conventional produce. Offering more in-depth nutritional and experiential information than Boutenko’s recently released Green Smoothie Revolution, Green for Life makes an ideal companion piece to its recipe-rich successor. From the Trade Paperback edition.
Victoria Boutenko, Elaina Love, and Chad Sarno have been leaders in the raw food movement since the 1990s. Each of them maintained and promoted the 100 percent raw diet for years. Since then, all three have independently arrived at the same conclusion: that a totally raw diet is not necessarily the best diet. One reason for their shift in thinking is the latest scientific research on the impact of omega essential fatty acids on human health. Studies show that if eaten in excess, omega-6s can cause inflammation and obesity. A typical raw food diet contains large quantities of nuts and seeds, most of which are extremely high in omega-6s and low in omega-3s. Raw foodists are not the only ones lacking sufficient omega-3s in their diet. Because omega-3s are easily damaged by heat, anyone whose diet is high in processed foods and oils probably has an omega-3 deficiency. Many symptoms of this deficiency can be mistaken for other health problems or nutrient deficiencies, so few people realize the cause of their ailments. Boutenko’s chapters on omegas provide readers more in-depth nutritional information. One hundred recipes—from raw to steamed and lightly cooked dishes, from appetizers to desserts—offer readers the means to enjoy a more sustainable, healthy, and energetic lifestyle. From the Trade Paperback edition.
"A revised and expanded version of the original, this book illuminates the average person's multi-level attachment to cooked foods, explains how one can successfully transition to a raw food diet, and--relying on new scientific evidence--explains the health benefits of eating raw, living foods"--Provided by publisher.
Victoria Boutenko responds to the crisis of childhood obesity with a story that makes children excited about nutrition, healthy foods, vegetables and fruits, green smoothies, and the science of plants. This kids' book follows young Nic as he discovers the importance of healthy eating with a plant-rich diet and learns to invent his own healthy recipes for kids. With a pilot father and an artist mother, Nic is an inquisitive child with a fondness for magic. One day, he asks his father where trees come from and is amazed to learn they come from small acorn seeds that grow powered by the sun. His father tells him about the magical green juice, chlorophyll, in all plants. Since humans can't grow with sunlight alone and we don't make our own magical green juice, we need to eat plants to grow big and strong like the oak trees Nic is so fascinated by. Eager to grow big and strong, Nic goes home that night determined to eat more vegetables. He's quickly disheartened when he is put off by the bitter taste of lettuce. But his mother thinks of a way to ensure he can have a tasty, healthy diet. Buying a blender the next day, she whips up some raw-food green smoothie magic. Nic is hesitant at first, but his natural curiosity wins out, and he is soon asking for seconds. The story ends with Nic's own smoothie recipe. Combining sweet fruits with green vegetables, this kids' food recipe promises to be a favorite with children and picky eaters everywhere.
