Going Raw : Everything You Need to Start Your Own Raw Food Diet and Lifestyle Revolution at Home Paperback
Going Raw combines the beauty and flavor of a gourmet cookbook with everyday recipes that are practical for the real-world home chef.
There are utilitarian books that offer a lot of great basics but do not illuminate the content with stylish and instructional photography.
Going Raw promises the basics (kitchen gear, pantry ingredients, how to plan your grocery shopping and menus, prep and storage techniques) and delivers delicious, simple recipes for the starter raw foodist.
A 30 minute bonus DVD content features various food preparation techniques, finished presentations, and "raw food 101" lifestyle tips and advice as well.

Review by jfoster_sf
Loved this book! The author takes you step by step through many difficult preparation techniques (getting the water and meat out of a coconut, for example) and goes in depth about soaking, sprouting, all about raw food if you're just starting out, and best yet, her recipes are actually do-able! Most of her recipes are quick and easy to prepare, especially if you follow her advice and always have certain things on hand (soaked and dried nuts, sprouts, lots of veggies). This is one the books I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to eat healthier, and particularly for those interested in eating more raw foods. (Another book I really recommend is Raw Food by Erica Palmcrantz Aziz and Irmela Lilja=)

Well, I love food. I am not a Vegetarian, but I eat a lot of Vegetarian and if I am to lazy to cook I love to eat Raw. This book is absolutely brilliant, especially for people who like to try eating Raw. Judita Wignall gives as a small introduction into the Raw food diet without being patronizing - like some others like to be - very down to earth. She makes it with her brilliant explanations, beautiful photos and recipes easy for people to "want" to try Raw. In step by step photos people can see how specific Raw food preparations are made, such as how to make nutmilk, how to prepare raw chocolate, or how to make fermented foods - Sauerkraut and other cabages. You will find great tips and tricks to introduce more Raw into your daily diet and how to bring that in tune with a busy lifestyle. There are also Suggestions on how to plan your meals, stocking up your pantry, and for people who are not kitchen wizards she explains basic knife skills. I have read already read quite a few books on Raw food and this one is so far the best. Although, someone who wants to know more about the nutritional value and how Raw food works will not find it here. This book is an introduction to Raw food with lots of brilliant and tasty recipes for beginner Raw Foodists. :)
