I have just received your book and what a prime example of a raw food-guide! Thank you from my heart for your thorough work with this book. It will be my “bible” and my support as I continue experimenting with raw, living food. I read the Gaia poem in the end and was very touched. I am also deeply grateful for all that life has to offer me here on Mother Earth. Hopefully I will also be able to benefit from your knowledge in the future.
Lots of love, Birgitte Weisbjerg
I tried raw food many times and I have most of the books written about the subject but I have to admit that I wasn´t impressed. It didn´t taste well and took too long to prepare. Well, that was until the moment when I got Glød & Glæde med Raw Food by Vibeke Amdisen in my hands. It is the absolute best raw food book on the market and on top of it, one of the best cookbooks I have read for a long time.
The first part of the book gives the reader some light theory regarding our food habits, preparing raw food, kitchen equipment, etc. It also offers a 2-week diet plan which I recommend if you would like to experience the beautiful influence that this type of food has on your body and mind. The real strength of the book is it´s recipes however. They are sovereign. They look incredibly inviting, they are a real pleasure to make and they taste fantastic!
In our family we already have our favorites which are e.g. ”yummy yoghurt” with avocado, banana and raspberries for breakfast and “beetroot salad with sweet mint dressing” or “living lasagna” for dinner. When we have dinner with our friends, the dishes are wonderful in combination with fish or meat but on an everyday basis we feel great with eating vegetarian.
I will probably never become a hundred percent “raw foodie” as I believe that my broccoli should be steamed to release the healthy sulphoraphan and that my tomatoes need to be warmed for me to benefit from the life-giving lycopene. I also think that an occasional warm meal is good for us humans living in the North. But you see, this is what is so great about this book. You don´t have to only eat raw food to benefit from it – something the author mentions in the book herself.
Glød og Glæde med Raw Food is a brilliant source of inspiration. It´s a “must have” for all dedicated raw food lovers as well as people who just want to get inspired and motivated. This book gets my warmest recommendations.
