Live Raw is my favorite raw recipe book!
I watched the movie Julie & Julia from the library, and something clicked. Maybe I identified with Julie being an aspiring writer and blogger, maybe it was my love for food and enjoyment of preparing it, maybe it was just the characters themselves that I found delightful, but anyway, I loved this movie for all that it was—deliciously cooked foods and all.
Government drone by day, renegade foodie by night. Too old for theatre, too young for children, and too bitter for anything else, Julie Powell was looking for a challenge. And in the Julie/Julia project she found it. Risking her marriage, her job, and her cats’ well-being, she has signed on for a deranged assignment.
365 days. 536 recipes. One girl and a crappy outer borough kitchen.
In just one year she made all 536 recipes from Julia's French cookbook! It really is amazing.
So I started thinking about my favorite cookbooks and of course I was inspired.
So I'll start with Chapter 5: Smoothies, Juices, Warm Drinks, Mocktails, and More. I urge you to get the book—gee, right now it's on sale at Amazon for only $11.32 and this oversize book has 225 pages! Or visit Mimi at her website and get your own autographed copy for only $16.95 (a great gift) Young On Raw Food.com. Get the book or one of your own choosing and you'll be glad you did. I'm giving myself the option that if I can't find an ingredient (there are a few strange ones here and there) or I can't eat an ingredient listed (I'm on an anti-inflammatory diet remember) I can skip or modify the recipe.
So, check back or join me in your own raw food recipe exploration and be good to yourself!
