The healthy body you've always wanted
Cover of The Raw Food Diet


Shrink-wrapped, plastic-wrapped, tubbed, tubed, boxed and bagged most of our food these days comes to us from a factory in a shiny wrapper perfectly designed and marketed to appeal to the pleasure-centres of our brains. Yet this era of modified, modernised, mass-produces food is the tiniest blip on our lifespan as a human population, and deviates drastically from the food we were designed to ingest. Getting back to basics is a popular choice these days as many people invite more raw food into their diets in a bid to regain a healthy lifestyle, and to lose weight.

Christine Bailey's The Raw Food Diet is a beautifully designed book, making it a pleasure to browse through. Her beautiful photographs and attention to colour and style make each recipe look as delicious as it is healthy, and straight away I can't wait to hit the kitchen.

There are three options given: the Raw Food Weekend Blitz Diet, the Raw Food Week diet, or you can go the whole hog and try the Raw for Life Diet. These aren't about tracking the numbers there's no need to count calories and carbs instead the focus is on 'clean eating'; eliminating processed sugars and chemicals from your diet.

Bailey explains the premise behind the Raw Food Diet, promising weight loss, improved digestion, improved energy and immune function and a clearer, more radiant complexion as just some of many benefits. She recommends a gradual shift to raw food, and speaks clearly and sensibly this is an author you feel you can trust.

As well as many delicious-looking recipes from drinks to mains, condiments and desserts, Bailey includes a glossary/grocery list to make planning your new lifestyle easier. Her books retails for around $23, and would be a good investment for anyone interested in pursuing a healthy lifestyle. Christine's other works include The Juice Diet, The Top 100 Low-Salt Recipes, The Top 100 Baby Food Recipes and The Top 100 Recipes for Brainy Kids.
