Review by MrsLee
I am a total novice when it comes to raw food and the theories of such. I bought this cookbook because I was so tired of cooking in the summer heat and wanted some fresh ideas. Although I found her introduction to be interesting, she quotes "studies" wildly, without references to such studies as far as I can tell. Many seem like unfounded theories at best. Still, they make her feel good, and that is fine. The idea of getting sunlight vitamin D and grounding oneself by walking barefoot on the earth is appealing and if you feel better doing it, who is to say it isn't healing as well? As for many of the other claims, well, I have a certain span of life to live on this earth. I'm trying not to stress out about it too much (that's good for me, right?). So, I will pick and choose lightly from this book which ideas to follow and which to let go for now. So far, I manage two raw meals a day and one simple and clean cooked meal with animal protein. This suits my summer mood, but may not work for me in the winter. I intend to try making Kefir water because it sounds interesting and like a possible substitute for sweet drinks which don't appeal to me. I also like the sound of nut cheese and want to try making that. Her smoothie and soup recipes are inspiring. Wignall makes it clear that substitutions are a good thing and to be encouraged, that is my kind of cooking. I am not interested in pretend recipes for pasta, muffins, ice cream or cake, but some people may enjoy those.I did find what I was looking for in this book. Fresh ideas for simple foods which are good and good for me. I will have to look for it in the paper version however, because trying to use a cookbook on Kindle is unwieldy and useless.
