View Full Version : Got my Book and DVD today
10-01-2007, 02:16 PM
I've not seen the videos yet, but have been flipping thru the book a bit. I must say I was expecting way more pictures of the foods in the recipe section. I need a visual of what the stuff is supposed to look like! #1, to entice me to try it and #2, to show me what it's supposed to look like when made and #3, to entice my kids to try it!!! I must say I'm a bit bummed to see so few pictures. I am looking forward to watching the DVDs to get some of the visual I need.

Oh yeah, you'll get a LOT of visual with the DVD (glad you got them both!) and the DVD is a great accompaniment to the book!
But keep in mind that because the book is glossy and in full color it probably would have been a lot more expensive, not only for Alissa to get printed but also for US, as the consumers, had she added in a lot more pictures. But I think it's all good as I've seen some raw recipe books that have no pictures whatsoever.

To me the book & DVD's are symbiotic. They totally complete each other. When I need not to be interupted buy the kids I put on one of my raw food DVD's and Alissa is always my daughters favorite!
I too am a visual person but do not fret just dive on in and enjoy the amazing information she has for you :). When I first got it I took it into the bath for a good long read - then dropped it into the tub! I told Alissa about it and she had a good laugh!:p
I do love eye candy too... I just started taking pics of my food as I make it... Have you looked in the photo thread? A lot of the recipes have been created by folks on the forum, so you could check some out there! :)

Ok, so I must say, I just finished watching most of the 3 hours of video. Whew! I'm feeling better about things now. And as usual, I was over complicating things! Thanks for everyones comments and encouragement.
