"Raw" food is changing the way thousands of people look and feel. Eating raw no longer means consuming only carrot sticks and boring fruit plates-it's a whole new cuisine and lifestyle. For author and chef Kristen Suzanne, going raw means getting "the glow"-looking and feeling fantastic, and living longer by preventing (and even reversing) disease. Featuring the same fun and passionate style that has made her blog, KristensRaw.com, one of the most popular raw food blogs, Raw Awakening takes you step by step through the raw food lifestyle: equipping your kitchen, grocery shopping, eating out, dealing with setbacks (and family members!), improving digestion, and losing weight, until eating raw becomes second nature. Best of all, the book features more than 50 fabulous recipes-no cooking required!- for treats like banana ice cream, lasagna, soups, brownies, and even cheesecake. Inviting and inspiring, this manual shows the way to a new, healthier life-to your own "raw awakening." Book jacket.
