Publisher Comments:

Ten years ago, Carol Alt was feeling bad. Really bad. She had chronic headaches, sinusitis, and stomach ailments; she was tired and listless. And then Carol started eating raw?and changed her life. Eating in the Raw begins with her story and then presents practical, how-to information on everything you need to know about the exciting movement that?s been embraced by Demi Moore, Pierce Brosnan, Sting, Edward Norton, and legions of other health-minded people. You?ll learn:
  • What exactly raw food is — and isn?t — and how to integrate it into your diet
  • How to avoid the all-or-nothing pitfall: you can eat some cooked foods, you can eat some foods partially cooked, and you don?t have to deprive yourself
  • Why raw food is not just for vegetarians or vegans — Carol eats meat, and so can you
  • The differences between cooked and raw vitamins, minerals, and enzymes, and what they mean for you
  • An ease-in approach to eating raw, and how to eat raw in restaurants
In addition, Carol answers frequently asked questions and offers forty simple recipes for every meal, from light dishes such as Gazpacho and Lentil Salad to entrees including Tuna Tartare and Spaghetti al Pesto and even desserts like Pumpkin Pie and Apple Tart with Crème Anglaise — rounding out a thorough, accessible, and eminently compelling case why in the raw is the best way to eat.

Synopsis:

By eating foods that have not been chemically altered by heat, the body is able to retain more vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients. Eating in the Raw shows how to ease into this new way of eating and provides 40 recipes that leave no doubt about how delicious the raw food approach can be.

Synopsis:

Carol Alt is among the vanguard of Americans, as many as a million in number, who have discovered that eating foods in their raw state can keep you feeling and looking great. As Carol has learned and explains here, we evolved eating a primarily raw diet, so our bodies perform optimally with raw food as fuel. By eating foods that have not been chemically altered by heat, the body is able to retain more vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients we need. The raw food approach, however, does not call for an all-or-nothing, extreme lifestyle change. There is a continuum, not only in how much of your diet is raw, but in how much you cook your food.

Eating in the Raw shows you how to ease into this new way of eating. It also provides 40 recipes that leave no doubt about how delicious the raw food approach can be. Carol Alt is passionate about the immediate and long-term benefits of a raw food diet, from having more energy to avoiding serious illness. With Eating in the Raw, she uses all of her supermodel charisma to get the ball rolling on the next big dietary movement.
