Prepare to block out time to complete this DVD collection of live foods vignettes. The Ultimate Encyclopedia of The Raw Food Lifestyle meets the raw food trifecta: promotional, educational, and inspirational. The diabetes section alone is more valuable than many medical features I’ve seen. Other highlights were Victoria Boutenko’s feature in the Nutrition section on greens as the “missing jewel micronutrient” in raw eating. Another highlight is the Optimal Performance section where immunity strength and recovery are featured as the secret to elite athletic performance. I’m familiar with many raw recipes and preparations, which can be a highlight for a novice.
This DVD is a well-rounded introduction to raw foods with testimonies, recipes, medical studies, and more. You’ll see firsthand how raw foodists can be much more persuasive in zeal for plant-based foods than regular vegans. With features ranging from medical doctors, triathletes, actors, motivational speakers, chefs, and spiritual coaches, the general consensus for starting out raw is to:
- Keep it simple
- Let it happen organically
- Start eliminating foods on your own terms
- Began replacing them immediately.
Salads, green juices, blended meals, and fruits can be your short term replacements.
If you’re looking to venture into raw foods, The Ultimate Encyclopedia along with documentaries like Forks Over Knives are great motivators!
