I have been vegan for over a year and I am interested in raw food, but it seems that I lack general knowledge regarding the diet for me to make a change. A few questions:
1. Any book recommendations for beginner raw vegans?
2. I know that raw cacao is commonly used by raw vegans and wonder why there is no reference to the harmful caffeine content. Does the taste of raw carob powder resemble cacao?
3. Most important: The average, daily raw menu I have come across is quite basic and includes mostly fruits and vegetables as is. I find such a menu somewhat dull and would like to incorporate more foods (soups, ice creams, etc.). The question is, does this normally require much time and effort?
Thanks to repliers.
