Greetings all...I'm a newbie.
I have just started eating raw and loving it of course. I am starting with the "Living on Live Foods" book. Can some of you veterns offer some advice on other books I can purchase for some good recipes? What are your favorites?

Living Cuisine- Renee Loux Underkoffler
Rawvolution- Matt Amsden
Raw food Real World- MAtthew Kenney & Sarma Malngailis
I also have David Wolfe's Naked Chocolate & Eating for Beauty-Great books-but I have not made many recipes.

I loved the book "Nourishing Taditions" by sally fallon.
It isnt strictly vegan but there are loads and loads of vegan recipes in there. It also has lots of awesome info on fats and stuff.
My fav is the lentil pancakes (ferget the indian name for em). Fermented of course. Good stuff! :)
You can get the book for 14 dollars on amazon. must be about 1000 recipes overall, some cooked, some meat and alot of vegan ones as well.

I love Alissa's and Raw Food Real World. Though I have just discovered a new fav, "Raw food made easy for 1 or 2 people" This book is great if you are just feeding you and the recipies are simple and not time consuming. It isn't fancy raw food, great for every day meals. Raw food Real World is more fancy stuff, but hmm.. it's good!

Raw food made easy for 1 or 2 people
That sounds good as Im the only one in my family that is raw, and I want to prepare my meals myself.
Are there a lot of recipes in alissas book? I need variety so Im looking for simple yet diverse meals.
I figure I want three regular sit down meals a day. Breakfast is fruit only, so what I need is lunch and dinner......I dont need to eat much, but also not too little....and I need variety cuz I cannot eat the same veggies every day...is the 'raw food made easy for 1 or 2 people' for me in this case?

I'd recomment raw food made easy for one or two people by jenny cornbleet.
I also HIGHLY recommend Frederic Patenaude's Instant Raw Sensations.

I love the ''Raw Food Gourmet" by Nomi Shannon. It's got great pictures of what the food should look like and recipes are great!!!!

Alissa has alot of recipies in her book as well as the info you need to get started. It is an amazing book, the absolute best one to start with I think, and I've done _alot_ of reading. The cook book "Raw Food Made easy for one or two people" doesn't have as many recipies, but they are truely easy and will take care of dinner and lunch easily. There is a wide variaty of recipies in there, I've quite enjoyed it.
