The acclaimed authors of Becoming Vegan: Express Edition, Becoming Vegan: Comprehensive: Comprehensive Edition present the first authoritative look at the science behind raw food diets. The book is written for anyone who wants to eat more raw foods, either to lose weight, fight chronic health problems, or benefit from the high level of nutrients in uncooked or sprouted foods. The authors offer science-based answers to tough questions about raw foods and raw diets, furnish nutrition guidelines and practical information, and show how to construct a raw diet that meets recommended nutrient intakes-simply and easily. Professor Rynn Berry, a historian on vegetarianism, offers an overview on the anthropological, historical and religious roots of rawfoodism. A section of over 45 recipes provides dishes for any time of day and every occasion. Nutritional analysis are given for each recipe. A glossary, references, resources, and index are also included.
