Would you like to improve your wellness measurably inside and out, while also helping to promote a healthy environment? What about trimming your waistline, increasing your energy, healing from disease, or better yet, preventing it altogether? This book can help you to achieve all of these objectives and more. A Walk on the Raw Side is for those of us who would like to be better acquainted with the numerous benefits of plant-based cuisine with an emphasis on fresh, raw food.
The phrase “going raw” typically means embracing a diet based on fresh, whole plant foods, which is actually not such a radical concept as the healthiest consumers have practiced it since the dawn of time. It is really just an expansion on the recommendations of mainstream health advocates today, which is to eat more fruits and vegetables for optimal wellness and disease prevention. For a growing number of health-minded people, this concept is at the core of enlightened nutrition.
Indeed, more Americans are transitioning to a plant-based diet than ever before. This is largely due to the overwhelming evidence that has been surfacing during the past several decades on the numerous health benefits that plant foods deliver. Choosing primarily plant-based cuisine has the potential to improve your life significantly, while also helping our fellow creatures and the Earth overall. Although genetics and family history influence our health and well being, our lifestyle choices have far greater impact over time. The most prevalent health threats we face—from heart disease to diabetes to cancer—are almost entirely preventable through diet and lifestyle. Therefore, it seems counterintuitive not to take action to save ourselves from costly and debilitating illness, especially when it is so easy and affordable to do so.
If you like the idea of embracing a more traditional, natural dietary approach proven by many cultures to improve your wellness and increase your longevity, this is the book for you. A Walk on the Raw Side was written to inform, inspire and assist you, as well as to offer innovative, appealing recipes and clever tactics to make it easier for you to enjoy a plant-based menu on a daily basis. It is a worthy aspiration indeed when you understand that our food choices affect not only ourselves, as consumers, but also humanity on a global scale and the Earth’s ecosystem. The natural world, after all, is a community, not a commodity. As responsible stewards of this uniquely beautiful planet, let’s start making all of our daily food choices with this knowledge in our minds, and in our hearts.
