Whenever anyone asks me for advice on going vegan, or even just to start eating healthier, this is what I tell them: Buy a few vegan cookbooks and try at least one new recipe every week. Over time, you will build up a repertoire of vegan recipes and you won’t feel like you are “missing out” on anything.
Even if you aren’t following a raw foods diet, it is still nice to have a few raw food recipe books on hand. The recipes in these raw uncookbooks are light and refreshing, often easy to make and obviously require no cooking (a godsend in summer months). Most importantly, they inspire you to use common ingredients in creative ways — like using zucchini noodles in place of spaghetti or blended cashews in place of cheese. These are some of the best raw food recipe books you will find and include recipes for beginners and advanced raw foodists alike.
