I have put together a list of books and favorite recipes that I've been told about thus far. This is in no particular order. Please feel free to add to this list. If you have a favorite recipe from the book you can add that, too.
Raw: The Uncook Book, by Juliano
The Raw Gourmet, by Nomi Shannon
Sent in by Tommie: Instant Raw Sensations by Frederic Patenaude
Tommie is into the 8-1-1 style of raw eating (maybe Tommie and others who are doing 811 can write in about that) and says that Patenaude's book comes the closest to that style.
Favorite recipe: "Best Non-Fat Mango Dressing". Tommie says "It is really yummy if you can get a really good mango and a really good tomato. I make it with lime juice instead of vinegar. I could eat it as a soup instead of using it for dressing. It's that good! When I got the book, I also got a booklet that Frederic put together called The Best Foods on the Planet. It has been an invaluable tool to teach me how many calories, etc., that I need as a raw foodist"
Amber also says she likes the book Instant Raw Sensations. "I love many of the recipes, especially the smoothies".
Amber also recommends Green for Life, by Victoria Boutenko, saying, "I think it is the best raw food book I have ever read. EVER. After reading around 100 nutrition and raw food books, I think this one is the most important."
SqueakyClean recommends Nourishing Traditions, even though it is not a raw book. However, Squeaky made a great carrot, pineapple raisin salad from that book: "I grate about 4-5 carrots, finely chop about 2 cups of fresh ripe pineapple, add around 1/2 cup organic raisins, and about 1/2 cup or a little more of a dressing I make by mixing 2 tsp. dijon mustard, 1 Tbl. raw apple cider vinegar, then stirring and gradually adding about 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil. Mix all. Refrigerate at least one hour, then toss again and eat. YUM. Will last a day or two in the refrigerator."
Ren recommends several books: Complete Book of Raw Food; Recipes from God's Garden by Rhonda Malkmus; and a book by Rhio - I think she might be referring to Hooked on Raw (please correct me if I'm wrong, Ren).
I bought Raw: The Uncook Book the other day. It is full of beautiful photographs. I wil be looking at the books you all recommend as well. Ren suggests going to the library for uncook books, which is a good idea.
Thanks everyone, and keep the suggestions coming!
