Celebrities like Sting, Madonna, and Woody Harrelson have drawn attention to the newest trend in eating: raw foods. Raw foodists—people whose diets consist of at least seventy-five percent raw foods—eat an uncooked, unheated, unprocessed, and organic plant-based diet. For those looking for informative facts about this way of life, the newly published Raw Food For Dummies® (Wiley, 978-0-471-77011-4, Dec. 2012) shares reasons for incorporating raw food into your diet and tips on how to do it, as well as more than 100 recipes covering breakfasts, lunches, dinners, appetizers, and snacks.

Followers of a raw food diet cite numerous health benefits, including healthy detoxification, increased energy levels, improved appearance of skin, improved digestion, and weight loss. Raw foods are nutrient dense with little to no saturated fats or sodium, and because they're high in potassium and rich in fiber, they are important factors in helping to reduce the risk of heart disease and other chronic ailments. Raw Food For Dummies covers these benefits, as well as information on transitioning to the raw food lifestyle (including where to buy and how to store raw foods) and the popular methods of preparing meals (sprouting, dehydrating, juicing, greening, and more).

Raw Food For Dummies is for anyone interested in incorporating raw foods into an existing meal plan, as well as people interested in transitioning to a raw foods-only diet.
