Raw Food Recipes: Raw Food Diet Recipes in a Raw Food Cookbook The Raw Food Recipes book features two sections covering the raw food diet. The raw food diet is highly nutritious because you consume foods in their natural state. When food is processed and cooked, it loses some of its nutritional properties. By eating it raw, you are gaining all the nutrients the food contains in its most natural state. Raw food recipes are more than just a salad. There are even dessert recipes, soups, chips and fries, and delicious drinks. There are enough recipes within this book to plan a menu for weeks.
