Reinvent Your Raw Diet – Raw Energy by Stephanie Tourles
I talk a lot about incorporating more fruits and veggies into our diet. There really is no better way than to do so than in its natural form. But simply cutting up a bell pepper for a snack can get a little boring. And having a raw meal delivered to your door on a regular basis is a bit ridiculous.
Rarely do I get excited about cookbooks. Usually they are filled with recipes that take hours to prepare composed of ingredients I don’t recognize.
So you can understand how a book of RAW recipes for SNACKS fits the bill for me!
Raw Energy gives you 124 options to change it up! Plus, when you make the bars/balls/bites yourself, you know exactly what’s in them and can rest assured they haven’t come in contact with any form of “processing.”
The book offers you recipes on how to not only make raw ingredients more interesting, but also harness specific qualities about how each energize you. Author Stephanie Tourles provides you with a very simple breakdown of the digestive system and a nugget about each fruit, veggie, and nut so you have a better understanding of how they can be useful to you. If you don’t want to take her word for it, she quotes several other experts in the field. It’s the best 101 I’ve seen on nutrition in a while.
