The Essential GreenSmoothieGirl Library . . . part 1

By Robyn Openshaw, MSW | Oct 24, 2008

I’m writing brief reviews of my very favorite nutrition books, starting with my favorite RAW FOOD books.    I’m telling you about the best books  that you might want to buy, check out from the library, or at least know a little about.   These are by no means ALL the books I read on nutrition, just my favorites, what my friend Matthew calls The Top Shelf.   Just click on the book title to be taken to Amazon to buy  it.


For those wanting to eat more raw food:

Any of Victoria Boutenko’s books

Igor and Valya Boutenko, Eating Without Heating (easy, great recipes)

Renee Underkoffler’s Living Cuisine (caveat: recipes are delicious and gourmet, but time consuming)

Kenney and Melngailis’ Raw Food Real World (gourmet, some labor intensive recipes, some pretty easy, the authors are gorgeous, the perfect examples of what raw cuisine does for beauty)

Gabriel Cousins’ Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine

Jordan Maerin’s Raw Foods For Busy People (easy, machine-free recipes)

Jennifer Cornbleet’s Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People

Brigitte Mars’ Rawsome! (lots of good info in addition to recipes)

Feel free to share some of your favorite books, too, as we go along in this series!

    I love the Alissa Cohen’s book, “Living on Live Food”. She has a wealth of information and alot of easy, delicious recipes. There are also some time consuming gourmet recipes but most are easy. i have enjoyed many wonderful recipes from this book.

26-Day Detox

I'm so in love with GreenSmoothieGirl’s detox and whole food programs! What I most value is how clear minded and energetic I feel, except in periods my body was detoxing hard. I'm proud to share that this was my 8th successful detox!
