BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Raw & Beyond is a new book written by Victoria Boutenko, Elaina Love and Chad Sarno. This book contains 100 different recipes that will help you sustain a diet that is high in raw foods. Raw & Beyond is also highly focused on showing you how omega-3 nutrition is transforming the raw-food paradigm. Boutenko, Love and Sarno have been leaders in the raw food movement since the 1990s and all of them have been promoting a diet that is 100 percent raw for years. However, since that time, each of them has reached the conclusion that a diet that is totally raw may not be the best diet.

The latest scientific information on excessive consumption of omega-6s causing inflammation and obesity is one reason for the shift in thinking. Usually a raw diet includes a lot of nuts and seeds which are high in omega-6s. Raw & Beyond discusses the importance of getting enough omega-3 in your diet and avoiding foods and oils that are processed. You will see some in-depth nutritional information within this book as well as recipes for dishes ranging from raw to steamed or lightly cooked dishes.
