Oh friends, do I have an awesome book to tell you about.
I was so excited about this one for a few reasons:
2) I knew it would expand my horizons on the plant-based food front and
3) I looked forward to devouring it like a novel; like the recipes, the words would undoubtedly be savored, as Gena truly has a gift with writing.
Of course, it surpassed my high expectations (as I knew Gena would do an amazing job). It’s a gorgeous book that will soon have spice smudges, dog-eared pages, and green juice splatters all over it. The only bummer?
I wish this would have existed years ago.
If you’ve been reading the blog for a while (thank you!!) then you already know that I was really into raw food for some quite a while. When I say “really into,” I mean that I devoted quite a bit of time into reading and learning about a raw diet, experimenting with recipes, and even attended a raw foods culinary school. In the end, I decided that a totally raw lifestyle wasn’t for me. I still love and frequently enjoy raw recipes, and I’m confident that a mostly raw diet didn’t last because I made it too hard for myself.
