“The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Eating Raw” Cookbook Giveaway

Click Here for Giveaways, Coupon Codes and More!

Recently dkMommy Spot gave away a copy of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Vegan Cooking, and I was pretty impressed with the book.  So I was happy to check out The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Eating Raw.  My family tries to incorporate a lot of raw foods into our diet, and while we do cook things around here, I certainly understand the great importance of eating raw.  But if you’re not familiar with raw foods, aside from a dinner salad, you probably don’t have a clue about where to start. 

The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Eating Raw covers things very well if you’re interested in digging into the nitty-gritty.  But if you already know the basics and want to dive right into the recipe section, you can do that too.  That’s what’s so nice about the Complete Idiot’s series.  It’s easy to flip through their books and find exactly what you’re after without taking the time to read cover to cover.  Eating Raw will teach you how to sprout seeds successfully, make your own nut cheeses (these are quite good), make yogurt out of plants, and all sorts of things you may have never even thought of.  Whether you’re looking for a few good recipes to add to your dinner, or you want to totally make over your family’s eating habits, the information is in there.  

I’m a recipe experimenter.  I love to try new ingredients, and I love to prepare my usual ingredients in unusual ways.  If you’re like me, or if you’re already way into raw foods and want some fresh ideas, you’re in the right place!  Enter here to win your own copy of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Eating Raw.

  1. Hi,
    I’m overweight so trying to incorporate more raw foods into my eating habits but it hasn’t been easy since I’m so used to fast food and cooking.

    Recently have been trying to blend my own natural juices but they haven’t been very tasty. Not sure what I’m doing wrong.

    I’m just wondering about if it’s important to also incorporate a little protein and carbs in my daily diet as well.

  2. I have started to incorporate more raw foods into my diet. I think it’s a very healthy thing to do.

  3. For us, raw foods include plenty of fruits…as for vegetables, cucumbers, carrots, lettuce,tomatoes, sweet peas,radishes make their way into our daily diet. But, of course, one can never have enough and I would definitely love to learn more.

    sunitas last blog post..Berries galore…

  4. Other than tons of fruit, I eat raw whenever I can get fresh green things here in my East Coast town. Seems like much of the produce is flown in from California & quite literally in the early stages of spoilage (especially if bagged!). I miss walking to the Farmer’s Market every weekend to buy just picked produce & need to find a better option here. Asked to join a local CSA but they were full!

    If you ever get a chance to visit Cafe Gratitude in either Northern or Southern CA I highly recommend it for a richly-flavored raw experience (Try the enchilada special!).

    MGs last blog post..Oh the pain (Reason #36 Why I love lemons)

  5. this would be amazing, I’ve gone vegetarian and so is my 12 yr old daughter but this would be just..wow. I would love to try it though!

  6. we most definitely do. one perk of growing up in the African bush was a childhood eating all whole foods and, consequently, a lifelong love of them. now i just need some more inspiring ideas 😉

    Anna Js last blog post..all in the family

  7. I eat about 75% raw since beginning of summer. Really need a dehydrator to make a lot of things that you would “normally miss”, but I feel a lot better when I eat raw.

  8. We only eat about 30% raw right now but have been looking into going to about 75%. I have been researching and reading information and would love to go all the way. Even with just small amounts of raw, we have seen a benefit. Would love to win this book :) Thanks!

  9. sometimes we eat raw food, if i have a lot of fruits and vegetables i’ll whip something up!

  10. We eat a lot of vegetables and fruits raw but I cook fish and meat. I would love to have a copy of this book.

  11. This would be so handy, I am a new vegetarian(don’t eat meat chicken or fish] this book would be an awesome addition to my new cookbook collection, thank you.
