Hello. Can anyone recommend some uncooking books or DVDs on the living foods lifestyle? I am looking for something that includes information on wheat grass and cultured raw foods like Ann Wigmore used. I would prefer books and DVDs that I can get inexpensively (under $20, like used on half.com) or at my local library here in Dayton, Ohio (you can search the Dayton Metro Library’s catalog at http://www.daytonmetrolibrary.org). I’d also rather not use a lot of tropical ingredients as I am trying to eat more locally.
I would appreciate any tips on following this kind of diet. I’m especially concerned about the taste of some of the recommended foods, rejuvelac, energy soup, wheat grass etc. I’ve read some stories that have me a bit scared.
Thanks amysue. I’ll consider that one. There seem to be very few raw food books that mention culturing foods. The ones I am leaning to most now are “Ann Wigmore’s Recipes for a Longer Life” and “The Raw Food Gourmet: Going Raw for Total Well-Being” by Gabrielle Chavez. Does anyone have these? How do you like them?
I have Raw Food Made easy for 1 or 2 people by Jennifer Cornbleet, and right now I’m reading Raw Food Life Force Energy By Natalia Rose, it contain lot of good info and at the end it has recipes. I got it from my local library
“Living Cuisine: The Art and Spirit of Raw Foods” by Renee Loux UnderKoffler was EXTREMELY helpful for me… I’m still very new to raw, and this book by far has helped me the most! The first hundred pages are detailed with info about every fruit, vegetable, nut, seed, herb etc. They’re all foods that can be found locally, as well. She has a TON of info on food preparation and how to do everything simply. (And there are 10 pages on culturing and fermenting food.)
If you’re looking for information on being raw, and some easy recipes, you should check out the blog I started with my brother, Roshi’s Raw Lifestyle . We’ve filled it with some awesome recipes and other info. Plus it only costs $0. I hope you find it helpful.
