Hi there, I live in canada and would love to get this book but to have it shipped to Canada is crazy due to the cost. So if anyone knows how to get the book shipped within canada that would really help out. Thanks

I am in Ottawa too.
I would recommand that you go to your book's store and request that they order it for you.
Here in Ottawa, i normally go to Siggning pepples where they have great spiritual books and raw food recipes book too.

Oh wow! How cool! yeah, Singing Pebble is my FAVOURITE bookstore. They dont have Alissa's book, though. Then of course the green door and the health food store!

I am in BC and I will have to travel around and see what I can find in the health food stores. I will see if they can order it at chapters or a big store, the cost of bringing it in might be less. I know the book will be expensive but the shipping from the states is $30.00 canadian...that is just too high for me for a book. I hear it is great though so I really want it. I have been going on 3 weeks raw but i am getting a little tired of salad for my dinners and I need easy, good, quick reipes with stuff I can find here locally. So far I have 2 raw books and the food seems complicated. I donot have time to dehydrate and soak my food. I am just not a preplanner like that. I have 2 small girls and no time. So thanks for your replies I will check in some of the bigger stores and see what I can order in. there must be other canadians on here? somewhere...

I know a teacher in Canada that may carry the book. I'll let you know the contact info tonight.

Hello, fellow Canadians! I don't really have anything to add, just that it's great to see some Canucks up in here!

Another Canadian here as well, from the Vancouver area. I was wondering the same question as to where to get the book. None of the libraries carry it, but the library in Poco does carry her DVD.
PButtercwup, you said you now had a source of where to get the book. Is it at the teacher link? And what did you find out about the cost of it?
Thanks, and it is great seeing there are quite a few of us Canucks!

and MelC is going to help me out. Her email is above. I am going to the library too for the DVD...silly that you cant get the book there too but it sounds like this book is a keeper. So email her and see what she says. Hope you get your hands on one two. I was thinking about going tot he seminar in Septmeber in Vancouver too. I think Mel teaches it if I am not mistaken, sounds pretty informative. Anyway talk to you later:)
Hi fellow Canucks!
I bought Alissa's book last year from SimplyRaw in Ottawa. They also carry Alissa's dvd. They don't have a storefront yet but if you give them a call, you can arrange to pick up products. See www.simplyraw.ca
Hope that helps!

thank you Melc. I just got it in the mail. Now I understand why the shipping is so much from the states. It is like an encyclopedia. I am shocked by the sheer size of this book. I cannot wait to get into it.
I am tempted to skip to the recipes but I think that the whole book is a must read. thanks again for all the great advice...any advice on which recipe to try first???

Hey you guys in Ottawa, can you tell me where the health food stores and any good restaurants are that have raw food are in the captial? im going there in a week.
The singing pebble sounds right up my alley, ill see if i can find it! :)
Definitely check out the Wild Oat on Bank St. (at 4th ave) for raw pizza, organic salads and raw pie. Herb & Spice at Bank & Lewis have an awesome raw section including specialty items such as raw coconut flour, macaroons, coconut butter and lots more.
SimplyRaw carries spiral slicers, books (including Alissa's), cacao, mesquite, carob, etc. They are located in the Glebe. See www.simplyraw.ca for contact info.
Hope that helps!

Hello all great to meet fellow Canadians:) :)
I got the book from Alissa's store as I couldn't find it in Montreal
It got here in 2 days and cost $12.00 shipping fee! I saved $5.00 cos I bought the dvds to ( THey are awsome) and so only really cost me $7.00
Hope this helps
P.S. I'm day 18 raw and loving it.
I need more energy though!! Any suggestions?????
You should ask to have your book shipped by normal mail. Usually it is the UPS broker that makes the costs go so high. I ended up paying Alissa's book double the price.....but believe me..it was worth paying some more to read it!!
Hey Yeshia, how is the DVD? Did you get any recipe work for you?? I leave in Sherbrooke and feel helpless because I didn't get any recipe work for me, needless to say, there is no course taking place in Sherby and with two young girls at home and a nearly-full time job, I have no time to go to MTL and attend raw "cooking" courses!!!
