Banyen's Description: 

Raw foods have come a long way in the last few years, so far in fact that the raw food diet is one of the top five diets in
North America.  What accounts for the change?  In 12 Steps to Raw Foods, expert Victoria Boutenko answers this and just about every other question readers may have about eating living foods.

Written in a convenient 12-step format, and incorporating the most current nutritional research, the author guides readers out of the “cooked food addiction” through the physical, psychological, and spiritual phases of the transition from cooked to raw foods. Embracing the raw food lifestyle is more than simply turning off the stove. Such a radical change in the way we eat affects all aspects of life. Boutenko touches on the human relationship with nature, the value of supporting others, and the importance of living in harmony with people who don’t share the same point of view on eating.

But Boutenko also covers the practical aspects, offering helpful tips and coping strategies for forming and maintaining new, healthy patterns.  Readers learn how to create a raw food restaurant card that makes dining with coworkers easy and enjoyable; the three magic sentences that enable them to refuse their mother-in-law’s apple pie without offending her; how to sustain the diet while travelling; and much more.             This enhanced second edition is aimed at anyone interested in improving their health through diet. Boutenko’s expert knowledge combined with her friendly engaging style, makes this book equally useful for seasoned raw-fooders as well as anyone interested in healthy living.
