Summary

Summary

A collection of more than seventy mouthwatering comfort food recipes using nutrient-rich, raw ingredients--a healthy, affordable, and accessible alternative to familiar processed and packaged foods.

Can spinach really taste like chocolate ice cream? YES!

Just try Stacy Stowers's Happy Shake--cupfuls of nourishing greens, plus a dash of raw cacao, a big handful of blueberries, and a few other delicious fixings that you can blend up every morning and enjoy with a spoon!

Stacy travels the country teaching families like yours how to add more whole, raw, unprocessed foods into their diets in the simplest, most satisfying way possible. Her clients soon discover they stop eating out of bags, bottles, cans, and boxes--and start feeling healthier, lighter, and more energetic. Eating raw is easier and tastier than you think. The gift of Stacy's approach is that it's not about becoming a "raw foodist" or joining some food religion; it's about adding foods that will make you thrive.

What are the potential benefits of eating raw? Weight loss and management, more energy, relief from chronic pain and allergies, better moods, and a younger appearance--to name just a few! From Stacy's comforting and crispy Cheatos and enticing Rainbow Fajitas, to her rich, delectable Chocolate Macaroon Fudge Bars, her more than 70 recipes will give you and your family an irresistible nutritional boost.


Author Notes

Stacy Stowers made her own remarkable health transformation in 2007, when she ended 17 years of chronic pain and fatigue-the effects of an illness the New York Times once described as "a disease without a cure"-after switching to a raw food diet. Now she tours the country living with individual families and helping them make the switch, too. Her recipes have been featured in Shape. When not traveling, she lives with her own family in New York City.

Booklist Review

There's raw food, much of which we consume in the form of crudites and salads. Then there's a raw-food diet (that is, no cooking), which many of us would avoid, if not completely dismiss. But read Stowers' long testament to the power of raw food, having recovered from fibromyalgia strictly through an adherence to this vegan lifestyle. It's not a book on a mission but simply one that advocates better choices for healthier living, along with 60 recipes. What is novel about her approach is her straight-on comparison with popular foodstuffs, whether fast-food style or freezer case. For example, substitute the oh-so-popular ketchup and fries for Stacy's version, a tomato-based sauce-condiment with jicama slices; or try the flagel, made with ground faro flour, instead of the 400-calorie counterpart, the bagel. She further heightens the then-and-now dishes with a list of ingredients as well as occasional nutritional information for the raw version. Best of all, though, are her nonverboten desserts.--Jacobs, Barbara Copyright 2010 Booklist
