A raw food cookbook? Sounds like a contradiction, doesn’t it? The whole point of raw food is that it is not cooked! But fans of the raw food lifestyle still need somewhere to get their recipe ideas, and a raw food cookbook is one place that you can do that!
There are plenty of raw food recipe books available. If you run a search on a bookseller website you will find a large number of them. The popularity of the raw food diet is booming and you may see well known names from the cookery world offering a raw food cookbook along with their traditional cooked recipe books.
The problem with these books is that you may find that the celebrity chef does not really know what is raw and what is not, and they may include some non-raw ingredients in the recipes. In other cases they may have commissioned the recipes. Either way, it’s a good idea to read some reviews to discover whether long term raw food dieters are happy with the recipes in the book.
You can also find a raw food cookbook that has been written or commissioned by somebody who is well known in the raw food world. But a raw food cookbook in traditional printed form is not the only way to find new raw food recipe ideas and meal plans. There are plenty of other options, especially if you take the time to look around the internet.
A quick search will show you that there are a huge number of raw food websites online. Many of these offer recipes, raw food weight loss diet plans, detox and other menu plans.
Some raw food websites have forums where you will almost always find a recipe section. Others offer ezines or email newsletters that you can sign up for. You can receive recipe ideas along with a lot of other useful raw food information that way. Or they may sell their own raw food cookbook in either printed book or ebook form.
As you probably know, the Amazon Kindle (TM), the Barnes & Noble Nook (TM) and other proprietary ebook readers have revolutionized the world of ebooks. People who had no idea what an ebook was a few years ago, now have hundreds of them on their ebook readers.
Traditional ebooks were in the form of a PDF document. In many cases these are the type of ebooks that you will be able to download from a website. They have many advantages over the newer type of ebooks like Kindle books. The main one is that you can read a PDF on any computer as well as on an ebook reader, and you can have copies of it in several places. This means that you can store your recipes on your laptop as well as on your Kindle or Nook.
For many people, ebooks are the way to go for recipes and they would not even consider buying printed recipe books any more. So when you are looking for a raw food cookbook, don’t ignore ebooks.
