Balanced raw : combine raw and cooked foods for optimal health, weight loss, and vitality / Tina Leigh, C.H.H.C., C.P.C.

Leigh, Tina (author.).

Summary:

A growing number of health practitioners-and trendy restaurants and celebrities-are espousing raw-food diets as the way to stave off disease, boost energy, and lose weight. However, 100-percent raw-food diets are difficult to sustain, limited in food options, and have come under fire for not being nutritionally sound. A new raw-food approach is gaining momentum-one that combines both raw and cooked foods for an optimal balance of vitamins and minerals, healthy fats, enzymes, and macronutrients. Balanced Raw eschews the all-or-nothing approach of other raw-food cookbooks, giving a four-phase, thirty-day plan for making the raw-food lifestyle-and benefits-livable for life. With the Balanced Raw approach you'll eliminate health-zappers such as allergy-promoting, acid-forming foods; clear toxins; and restore your body and metabolism with nutrient-dense recipes that taste incredible. Week 1: Enjoy elimination-friendly recipes such as Celery Root and Leek Soup with Green Apple, Pumpkin Spice Chia Porridge, Chili-Lime Veggie Crudité, and Tamarind Tossed Squash Noodles, Week 2: Cleanse your body with Citrus, Pomegranate, and Celeriac Salad, Holiday Apple Pie Smoothie, and Cooling Sweet Pea and Mint Soup, Week 3: Restore energizing nutrients with Moroccan Cauliflower and Sweet Potato Stew, Body-Loving Lemon Bars, Asparagus Ribbons with Lentils and Citrus Vinaigrete, and Quinoa, Carrot, and Currant Bowl, Week 4: Learn how to live Balanced Raw every day with supportive supplements, hydration, and healthy lifestyle strategies Book jacket.
