Softcover - 171 pages
This clearly written and inspiring book is an interesting combination of raw food eating and permaculture. It explores what happens when we eat more raw food and grow more of the food we eat ourselves.
The first part of the book covers the philosophy, looking at many aspects of human and planetary health and introducing a variety of permaculture principles, including the principle of working with nature.
Part Two focuses on the practicalities of dietary change and of setting up a permaculture system. Offering many useful tips on how to switch from a processed to a high raw diet, it also examines the role of permaculture in more depth, looking at permaculture techniques such as zoning, forest gardening, permaculture design and the use of perennials. In addition, the excellent list of Frequently Asked Questions should answer most of your queries when transitioning to a raw food diet.
Part Three contains inspiring contributions by other authors such as an extracts from Robert Hart's Forest Garden Diet, an article from Elaine Bruce on Indoor Gardening and Living Foods and some information on the work being carried out by Plants for the Future. Finally, in the appendices, there are about 25 basic recipes, plus some meal ideas to help you get started on a raw diet. There's also some information on Ecoforest (an ecological vegan raw food forest garden in southern Spain), a list of useful international contacts and suggestions for further reading.
