Publishers Description
Famed raw foods chef Renée Loux celebrates the growing whole foods movement with over 150 delicious, creative recipes and practical advice
for leading a healthy, whole life

In her first book, Living Cuisine, Renée Loux showed how nutritious and satisfying raw foods cuisine can be. Now she takes a broader look at the benefits of a diet rich in natural, whole foods. Under the banner of "nutritional cross-training," Renée outlines the basic principles of such dietary plans as macrobiotics and Ayurveda, and dishes up flavorful whole foods recipes for optimal health––including Ratatouille Thin Crust Pizza, Roasted Spring Vegetable Salad, and Lemon Vanilla Ginger Snaps––with a nod to gluten-free living, blood sugar balance, and boosted immunity.

You are what you eat, Renée explains, but you are also what you use to clean your house and your skin, and so sprinkled throughout the book readers will find ideas for introducing the whole-foods philosophy to their home and beauty routines, including tips for composting and choosing a healthy water filter.

When Living Cuisine appeared, Alicia Silverstone applauded Renée's recipes, saying: "Incredibly rich and delicious and full of health and restorative energy, her food is medicine." Part eco-friendly cookbook and part organic lifestyle guide, this new book reflects that same spirit, while presenting the essential elements of living well through whole foods, and living responsibly for a sustainable future.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Too much seaweed, ume, and soy  Jul 28, 2008
I expected this book to provide me with useful recipes and an overall healthy philosophy on food. There was some of what I expected, but far too many 'exotic' foods expected for every recipe, so that none of them looked interesting enough to try. I keep whole grains, fresh produce and herbs, and lots of basics in my pantry. What seemed to distinguish almost all of the recipes in the book were odd ingredients -- one-hit wonders, as it were -- that are expensive and ridiculous to keep around because I'll only use them once and the jar will take up refrigerator space. I didn't find it helpful, and I won't keep it.
Good Recipes & Advice  Jun 1, 2008
I got this book because a friend had it and liked it. The recipes are great and I enjoy all of the extra information and helpful tips for maintaining a balanced diet!
The Balanced Plate  Apr 22, 2008
Very informative book. I had already looked at a friend's copy before buying so I knew that I wanted this book.
Mama J - Knowledge is Power  Apr 15, 2008
I would like everyone in my family to have and read this book. I feel Renee's calm and her power as I read the power packed pages she has handed us on a "silver Platter". A must have for anyone who wishes to become very well informed about food, our planet, giving and receiving, interactions on so many levels. I expect this book to be so worn and used, that when I am gone from this world, anyone going through my home would know to grab it and treasure it as I do. I find myself at a loss of words to express my feelings, but trying, I would say I am inspired, uplifted, excited, and grateful. I feel I have a PHD sitting next to me having a warm and easy experience of learning. Mama J from Mama J's - Learn Raw the Funway, associate chef and instructor of raw culinary arts, graduate of Living Light Culinary Arts Institute in CA.

Spelt is NOT gluten-free!  Apr 7, 2008
The description of this book explains that the author writes with a "nod" toward gluten-free living. In one way, this is true. Many folks with gluten issues also have dairy issues, and this book cleanly sidesteps all dairy altogether, while providing workable recipes that sound like they would still taste good (especially the desserts, which sound delightful, although I haven't tried them yet). My big problem with the recipes in general is that she lists spelt as a gluten-free alternative. WRONG! Spelt contains gluten, and its use is an entirely inappropriate recommendation to individuals who are avoiding gluten. That being said, most experienced gluten-avoiders will know how to modify the few gluten-containing recipes (or skip them altogether), but for newbies, I cringe to think of the damage that could be caused.
