This plan is strictly vegan and promotes the usage of fresh raw foods whenever possible. For most people, these recipes will be a radical change from what they eat at present. Nonetheless, they will provide a place to start. I had a few personal challenges while trying these recipes. A large portion of the foods contained coconut, which I am allergic to, so I had to make some adjustments.
Moreover, many of the dishes contained ingredients that were unavailable in my area, so I again had to make substitutions. Jan 10, Cara rated it really liked it. After eating a mostly raw diet for over a year I still felt really out of control with my eating.
Sugar was the main culprit for my binges and after reading a lot about why, I discovered that candida needs sugar to survive and my cravings were my candida talking. I decided to get serious and do something about it and I'm now just 4 days in to eating in Phase 1 very restrictive, no fruits except for lemons and limes.

The recipes have all been really amazing so even if you don't decide to follow his program, the recipes make this book worth checking out. The recipes do make a lot, so hopefully you'll have someone to share them with. The science-y part of the book was kind of over my head, to be honest, but I figured that every body reacts differently to different ways of eating and the only way to find out if its right for me is to try it.
So far so good - very satisfying way to eat.
Feb 12, Belann rated it liked it. While Cousens makes some interesting and somewhat valid comments on the toxicity of stored grains, as he promotes his live-food cuisine and its healing benefits, I still am not convinced that they need to be avoided. There are way too many cultures where the basis of the diet is grains. To feed a lot of people, you have to store the grains. It is my belief that a diet with grains, even if they are stored grains, is more beneficial to long-term health than a diet where they are avoided.
I do like While Cousens makes some interesting and somewhat valid comments on the toxicity of stored grains, as he promotes his live-food cuisine and its healing benefits, I still am not convinced that they need to be avoided. I do like his attempt to tie in the Ayurveda philosophy with his recipes, however. There are several recipes I think I will add to my repertoire, since I do think raw food is healing, but I'm not convinced it is a long-term lifestyle. Sep 09, Karina added it Shelves: So, I cracked open this book to begin reading, and as I read the first page or two I realized this was a more indebth book than I was really wanting to read.
So I skimmed the pages and didn't find anything I was really interested in. I believe there's lots of health benefits, but I guess I'm just too addicted to "cooked" foods, I can't give it up. There's lots of oth So, I cracked open this book to begin reading, and as I read the first page or two I realized this was a more indebth book than I was really wanting to read.
There's lots of other healthy options without going completely raw. So I'm not going to rate this, since I didn't actually read it, but I'm still marking it as read. Jan 23, Olisia rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is an incredible resource and guide. I have used its insights on eating for health as well as the recipes.
Being interested in raw food while not having major health concerns has led to me away from fully immersing in his recommended phases. Instead, I select recipes of particular interest and ease. Jan 20, Fed rated it really liked it. Like everything, it needs to be taken with a grain of salt, but this book definitely reinforced for me the belief that the more fruit and vegetables I can grow on my property - with organic seeds - the better I am off with my health.

This book is not intended for a singles-type lifestyle.
All of the recipes produce huge quatities of food and take more time to prepare than french onion soup. If you have the time though, a raw food lifestyle is wonderful and the health benefits are extraordinary. May 29, G rated it it was ok.
