Giveaway: A Raw Food Cookbook!

Posted by on June 22, 2011 | 94 Comments

First things first … the winner of the I’m Organic Giveaway from last week is Stephanie! Congrats, and I believe you will have a cute eco-friendly mug coming your way. For those who didn’t win, you can still check out the I’m Organic website for cool stuff (they recently lowered their prices – now cheapo me thinks this stuff is a deal!), and I have another giveaway ….

This week you could win The Raw Truth: Recipes and Resources for the Living Foods Lifestyle by Jeremy Safron …

It’s finally summer, so I couldn’t imagine a better style of “cookbook” to have than one that doesn’t require you to turn on the oven or stove!

This book has a nice informational guide section at the beginning, giving a low-down on raw foods and some of those details that may be fuzzy for us newbies (sprouting, culturing, dehydrating, which foods are classified as raw, how to make the transition, health benefits, etc.), followed up by a plethora of recipes. Today on Go Dairy Free, I note the recipes that caught my eye in terms of which I would want to make, but here are some other recipes in this book that sound really intriguing:

  • Ruby Cooler
  • Fruit Rawies
  • Creamy Carrot-Ginger Soup
  • Cauliflower Chowder
  • Apple Cinnamon Essence Bread
  • Chile Mole
  • Tamales
  • Tribal Wild Rice Salad
  • Brownies
  • Ultimate Sundae
  • And the list goes on …

To enter, just comment here on your favorite raw food recipe. If your like me, it is probably a smoothie or salad, but maybe some of you have done a little more adventuring in raw foods!

The winner will be picked next week!

    I would have to say smoothies. Love the blend of vegetables and fruit.

  2. Kathryn says:

    I like making raw pies with cashews. Noooommmms.

  3. Katie says:

    Yep, no surprise here, my favorite is a smoothie – with either beets or pumpkin and almond milk and cocoa. Lame, yes. But SO good and it never fails to disappoint.

  4. Holly says:

    My favorite recipe is kale salad…YUM!

  5. nut butters! so awesome and you cna use them for sooo many things!

  6. Jessica says:

    raw cookies! so easy to make and hard to mess up!

  7. Rachel says:

    my favorite is zucchini “pasta” with fresh tomato pesto (and lost of garlic)! very light for summer, and so delicious. yumm!!

  8. jc says:

    i love kale chips!

  9. JB says:

    Anything with kale!

  10. Tami says:

    I’ve never tried the raw food method of eating. Would love to try some of the things in it! We enjoy smoothies at our house, so I’m sure that would be the hit for us.

  11. Laura says:

    Raw Key Lime Pie is amazing! Everyone loves it!

  12. Amber says:

    Ooo – that’s a close call between raw key lime pie (awesome!) and a liver cleansing carrot salad that is easy to dress up with pineapple and raisins and then toss with olive oil and lemon juice (the liver cleansing part). Good stuff 🙂

  13. Teresa says:

    I have been working on incorporating more raw food into my diet, so this cookbook would be great to have. I’ve eaten lots of tasty raw dishes, but I think my favorite is still fresh fruit eaten out of hand.

  14. Favorite raw food recipe is raw cheesecakes 🙂 And avocado puddings! The list can go on haha

    Great giveaway!!

  15. domestic diva says:

    We make raw coconut ginger snaps — super yummy!

  16. VickiRawks says:

    Can’t remember who I got this from, but it’s a fab ‘soft-serv’ ice-cream-type dessert. In my Vitamix (can use a food processor) I toss 3 frozen bananas (no peels, of course), 1T+ raw almond butter, and 3 pitted Medjool dates. Add a little water (I eyeball the amount) to make it easier to mix, then process till smooth. (If you add more water, it’s like a frozen smoothie, less for dessert consistency.) During strawberry season we add fresh-frozen berries. Yum!

  17. Josiane says:

    The avocado lime pie I’ve had a few months ago at a raw food restaurant was amazing! I really should recreate it at home… Maybe there’s a recipe in that book? I’ve got to check it out!

  18. Tyffanie says:

    Mmmmm I love fudge balls (made with walnuts, dates, chocolate) and I’m a big fan of green smoothies! But this book looks like it has a ton of ideas and fun things to try!

  19. Isobelle says:

    I really like to make raw strawberry cheesecake 🙂
    I would love to discover new raw recipes though! I haven’t checked out this book yet.

  20. Beth says:

    I love salad.

  21. Haley N says:

    my favorite raw food is probably some sort of cracker or cookies made from the dehydrator 🙂

  22. Geri Tucker says:

    Raw delicious Watermelon and peach popsicles!!! Cut Raw fruit, Stick onto a popsicle stick, freeze and enjoy!!!

  23. Hannah says:

    Zucchini noodles! You can dress them up with just about anything and they’re always tasty. So much fun to make, too.

  24. Lauren says:

    Love salads with fig balsamic dressing!

  25. nik says:

    Currently my favorite is Papaya, Fennel and Spinach Salad…so good!

  26. Tracy says:

    My favorite raw recipes are the “apple pie” and “weekend taco special” from Raw Food: A Complete Guide for Every Meal of the Day by Erica Palmcrantz and Irmela Lilja. I purchased a food processor just so I could try raw food “cooking” and this was my first cookbook. The look on my husband’s face when I told him I was making raw apple pie was priceless – and then he LOVED it! He also loved the raw tacos and I loved him for always being willing to try anything that I can “cook” up! 🙂

  27. Mandy says:

    Ooh raw foods – there’s too many goodies out there to have a favourite but I have recently been hooked on Seaweed Salad with a raw tahini dressing 🙂

  28. Tamara Wisniewski-Kozak says:

    I love making a cucumber/apple/avocado soup. Delish!!!!!!! It is a great smoothie too.

  29. Yvonne says:

    Raw crunchy granola or some kind of raw truffels or tarts are very good.
    I also make cashew based sauces – so creamy and flavorful!

  30. My two favorite raw things to eat is a Green Monster and any raw nut butter! They are both soooooo good!

  31. Tessa says:

    My favorite raw food recipe is sunflower seed pate wrapped in a collard green for the wrap:

    They’re so good!

  32. Lori says:

    Don’t know a lot about raw foods – yet… I love gazpacho. And of course smoothies and nut butters…

  33. Teslaca says:

    I do drink fresh juiced vegetables most mornings, but also love raw beets – the roots and the leaves – in salads. Date and nut bars are another favorite. They can be flavored lots of different ways or just left plain.

  34. yum, yum, yum, yum. I think my favorite raw food recipe is raw Pad Thai. It involves kind of a lot of ingredients but it’s worth it! So creamy and a crowd-pleaser. That or tahini kale salad.

    Good luck to me!

  35. Angelica says:

    i love chocolate, coconut, date bites 🙂

  36. Leah Jones says:

    I am really hooked to juicing right now. I love a great smoothie, but there’s just something satisfying about adding carrots and other veggies that you normally couldn’t add to a smoothy. Raw cooking seems like the logical “next frontier” for me to delve into. Thanks for the giveaway! And thanks for your blog– you are so real with yourself and yet so full of wonderful wisdom for all of us!

  37. Rhonda says:

    My favorite raw food dish is lasagna…..I never realized how fresh and vibrant lasagna could taste before having it raw.

  38. […] starters, the winner of The Raw Truth giveaway is Pure2raw twins. Congrats! You will get an email […]

  39. Amanda says:

    I’m glad you call it a cookbook, cause i always struggle with what is the right word for it :0) book of recipes sounds odd.

    My fav is really silly… it’s just broccoli with homemade hummus!

  40. Rachel says:

    I love to make my own “orange julius”.

  41. JW says:

    the lime cupcakes with coconut frosting sounds great.
    though I usually prefer lemon with coconut.

  42. Daniella says:

    i love making raw granola bars!

  43. Michelle says:

    Any of the desserts!

  44. Heidi Naemsch says:

    I love making raw desserts! Very easy, yummy and guilt free!
