(NaturalNews) A revealing and controversial e-book that was a labor of love for years by author Nomi Shannon is now available on the Webseed Empowerment Platform.
"What Do Raw Fooders Eat?" lets you, essentially, visit the homes of 48 busy people who describe themselves as thriving on raw foods, peek inside their private kitchens, and "spy"on them as they prepare their meals for an entire week?
What comes out of this book is plenty of mouthwatering taste, and plenty of revelation. This opportunity to see the actual recipes and photos of what 48 raw fooders eat goes with this summer's theme of uncovering truth about what really goes on, even in the natural health movement.
Raw food rule-breakers spill the beans
Given human nature, it turns out, some well known raw fooders don't eat what they teach us to eat, and that's documented in "What Do Raw Fooders Eat?" That's why some authors declined to participate in "What Do Raw Fooders Eat?" They didn't want to be judged by their meal logs for what they actually ate. They didn't want to be examined under a microscope.
But "What Do Raw Fooders Eat?" has some brave rule breakers who did put themselves on the line. This is the first time they expose what they really eat, even when it's not raw or "politically correct."
What I got from reading this is if you eat differently than a health food book or a raw food book, then you're not alone - even among the so-called authorities in raw food. If following the rules has been a struggle, these case studies will put your mind at ease and give you permission to listen to your own body.
In fact, you may be surprised - and relieved - to see how many seasoned raw fooders eat cooked food. You'll also find out which cooked foods are most popular in the raw food community.
Almost 1,000 actually-eaten meals, and how they are really put together!
The editor who documented all this is Nomi Shannon, widely known as "The Raw Gourmet."
Nomi says, "I've been working on this project for over two years. If I had access to information like this when I 'went raw' in 1987 it would have saved me two years of trial and error. I am so happy to be able to provide it to you."
