One of the high points in my professional career was watching my book, Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People, turn into a best-seller. I was proud and thrilled that so many people wanted to share what I had to offer. And I’m looking forward to another high point next month, when Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People REVISED is released by my publisher.
I’ve been doing lots of interviews related to the release of the book and one question many people have asked is why I decided to create an expanded version of my original manuscript. It’s a bestseller so their opinion was, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
The truth is that I’m not someone to sit on my laurels. I’m always moving forward. And when other people say something is ‘finished’ that’s when I start thinking about how to make it better. And that’s exactly what I’ve done in Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People Revised.
Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People Revised invites you to get to know the delicious world of raw food preparation with:
• Over 150 foolproof recipes (over 50 new ones in the Revised Edition!), along with lunch and dinner menu plans.
• Easy recipes that call for common ingredients and basic equipment.
• Instructions for creating delicious green smoothies that provide maximum nutrition and can be enjoyed any time of day.
• Tips for avoiding avoid health-busters like white sugar, white flour, and trans-fats
• Ideas for transforming traditional favorite recipes into nutritious treats made with all-natural ingredients.
• Strategies for enjoying raw food on the go whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure.
What’s more, to help readers fit raw-food meals into diet plans, every recipe now includes nutritional information: calories, protein, fat, carbohydrate, fiber, and sodium. It’s important to note that raw dishes also provide abundant antioxidants, enzymes, and phytonutrients that are not measured in the standard data.
One of my goals in creating Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People Revised is to spread the good news that eating nutritiously doesn’t have to be boring or complicated. And I’ve found that a great way to do that is with raw desserts. And even if you’re counting calories, you can enjoy raw food desserts on occasion because they contain plenty of vitamins, fiber, and other healthful ingredients.
Raw Food Blackberry Crisp
A wonderful example of a raw food dessert that trumps its traditional counterpart when it comes to good nutrition is my Blackberry Crisp. Most crisps are made with loads of butter, refined sugar, and flour. Half the time, you can’t even taste the fruit!
But in my version, the filling is fresh fruit and the topping is a wonderful combination of nuts, coconut, raisins, dates, spices, and natural sweeteners. Served with a scoop of raw food nut milk ice cream, Blackberry Crisp is refreshing summertime treat. And it’s filled with protein, healthy fats, and natural sweeteners instead of dairy products, refined sugar, processed flour, and other nutritionally empty ingredients.
And since blackberries are at their peak in July, you can purchase them inexpensively. You may even want to freeze some for the winter months when berries are in short supply. Just defrost them before putting them into your crisp.
