I was wondering if anybody could recommend a good raw food book for somebody who is started out? I'm looking more for books about health information and maybe tips on making the switch to raw, because I already have a couple of cookbooks that I can use.

The most appealing ones so far seem to be:

-Green for Life - Boutenko

-12 Steps To Raw Food - Boutenko

-Living on Live Foods - Alisa Cohen

-The Sunfood Diet - David Wolfe

-Raw Emotions - Angela Stokes

Does anybody recommend any of these or anything different? Thanks!

-Green for Life - Boutenko

-Living on Live Foods - Alissa Cohen

i have all 3 and highly recommend every one of them. there's info in each that you won't really get in the other. green for life will really have you wanting smoothies more often and you'll understand everything better, too. i think victoria has come out with newer versions of both of those books, too. so look into that.

i've used alissa's countless times. her recipes are so yummy.

Conscious Eating by Dr. Gabriel Cousens.

I'm a fan of Becoming Vegan... doesn't cover raw food explicitly, but does hit the nutritional science really well & in a way that would apply to transitioning to raw.

I've just started trying to incorporate raw foods into my eating habits daily. As I'm the only vegetarian in the house, I found the following book great -- I've tried lots of things and haven't had to worry about wasting food.

It's called Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People by Jennifer Cornbleet. So far I've enjoyed everything I've tried. It's also all very basic stuff --not a lot of gadgets needed --so good for just starting out.

I've really enjoyed the sunflower herb pate, sun-dried tomato marinara sauce and the basil pesto -- especially since I've not got plenty of basil from my garden.

Have fun and enjoy

Please pick up Green for Life! I loved it! I learned so much and got hooked on green smoothies from reading it.

Living on Live Foods and 80/10/10 are on my list as well!
