When you're stressed out, running behind schedule, and
hungry. . . or company's coming. . . or the kids are clamoring
for a snack. . . raw food recipes are the perfect answer.

pantry to quickly create satisfying meals and treats,
without turning to processed food that's so often high
in cost, but low in taste and nutrition.
Raw food recipes are a wonderful option for busy, health-conscious
people who love to eat. They require no actual cooking
time and can be ready in a matter of minutes. Or you can
prepare many of the components to a raw feast in advance
so you always have a grab-and-go meal ready when you're
hungry. And because the recipes are raw, the ingredients
are loaded with everything Mother Nature intended us to
enjoy: vitamins, enzymes, fiber, and scrumptious natural
There are healthy, delicious raw food recipes that are
right for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and those in-between
meal times when so many of us fall under the spell of
high-sugar, high-fat processed snacks. And with so many
options to choose from, you'll never run out of new ways
to add more fresh fruits and vegetables to your everyday
minute I saw that Jenny was releasing a new edition of
Raw Food Made Easy, I immediately placed my order.
I have the first edition, and it is by far the most used
recipe book in my kitchen. And the new edition is even
better. Some of the basic info has been consolidated,
like prep work recipes. Other areas have been greatly
expanded, like juices, soups and green smoothies. I have
tried some of the new recipes, and of course many of the
ones in the previous edition, and everything is so delicious,
and (just as important for a mother of 3) quick and easy.
I love the nut pates, and the Greek and Harvest Salad
are absolute favorites. And a Chocolate Green Smoothie?
Raw food dessert recipes let you take what's already
good and good for you — fruits, nuts, and other
natural products — and make them better. Mother
Nature does most of the work, but you can take all the
credit by simply combining ingredients in a way you may
not have thought of before.
Raw desserts are ideal for anyone who doesn't want to
sacrifice good health for good taste. The ingredients
aren't processed or heated, so they're loaded with vitamins,
enzymes, fiber, and scrumptious natural flavor. Plus there's
no trace of trans-fats, chemicals, animal products, corn
syrup, or other unhealthy ingredients that are typically
part of the manufacturing process.
Raw food recipes have been rapidly gaining in popularity
as more and more people realize that raw food is good
food. It's rich with the satisfying flavors, aromas, colors,
and textures that make eating a pleasure. That's why you
can now find raw food and raw food desserts featured on
the menus of elegant restaurants around the world.
Home chefs are learning that it's fast, easy, and inexpensive
to 'bake up' raw desserts with fresh ingredients. And
the great thing about raw desserts is that you can use
the foods you already enjoy to make irresistible cakes,
pies, ice cream, and confections everyone will love.
Simply put, desserts don't have to be damaging to be
delicious when they're made with natural, raw ingredients.
summer days are best soothed with cruelty-free sunscreen,
ice-cold lemonade, and bites of decadent desserts. Understandably,
many bakers shy away from the oven in the summer, opting
for fruit-based treats to keep themselves and their homes
cool. Raw-food mastermind Jennifer Cornbleet offers another
solution with her latest cookbook Raw For Dessert. While
fruit dishes earn their keep, plenty of creative, chocolate-filled
lovelies just beg to be made. Balance a Summer Fruit Trifle
with Chocolate Cupcakes, topped with Chocolate Ganache
all without flour, sugar, or flame. Cornbleet s recipes
promise sweet-tooth happiness beyond the summer months,
and redefine the notion of no-cook treats.
