Eating a diet high in raw foods can be a tad more tricky in the colder weather, because our bodies inwardly crave more warming foods to keep us comfortable. Enter Nourished - Comforting Raw Foods for Winter, a new ebook by Tanya Alekseeva from betterraw.com to help guide you on your raw journey through the winter season.
Tanya is a wellness coach, chef, author, Reiki do Satori master healer, and a renowned raw food and detox expert. Born in Russia, raised in New Zealand and now living in London, she focuses her coaching to ensure busy individuals achieve their most desired well-being and ultimate health objectives.
I've been a fan of Tanya's since I first became interested in raw foods a few years ago; her blog features some of the most delicious and interesting raw recipes around. I was delighted when Tanya sent me a copy of her new ebook to review, just in time for the holidays.
With helpful tips and hints like, "see abundance, everywhere" it's hard not to adopt Tanya's positive approach to staying raw and nourished during the holiday season but well past the frost as well. Her recipes are vegan, and gluten, soy, wheat free, which is an added bonus in my books.
The ebook features an incredible 39 (to be exact) comforting raw food recipes, separated into categories ranging from drinks & breakfasts, snacks & sides, meals, and of course, raw desserts.
As a reader, I found Tanya's ebook easily accessible through a simple, yet stunning layout. The color scheme and photographs drew my eye towards certain sections of the ebook (with the drinks & breakfasts, and desserts sections receiving the most attention from yours truly).
I can't wait to delve deeper into many, if not all, of these recipes once the weather gets colder and I'm tucked away, happy as can be, in my new kitchen. My eyes are on the fabulous recipe for Spiced Hot Chocolate, and yours should be too.
