These are all books I have read and learned from. Use the recommendations from Amazon to decide which ones are right for you.

The Live Food Factor: The Comprehensive Guide to the Ultimate Diet for Body, Mind, Spirit & Planet
by Susan Schenck
Amazon

This book turned me on to raw eating and really helped me understand exactly why it is so important. There are scientific studies and references throughout for those interested in confirmation on a practical level. The book is easy to read and the concepts become obvious.

The Sunfood Diet Success System
by David Wolfe
Amazon

David Wolfe has a vast depth of knowledge when it comes to raw eating. He explains in great detail how each person with their own set of needs (high protein, sugar or fat) can skew their diet to achieve success. He relies on the mind/body connection to illustrate his main points.

Superfoods
by David Wolfe
Amazon

If you are new to superfoods this is a must read. David reveals the top 10 superfoods in order of importance along with recipes for how to enjoy them.

Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine
by Gabriel Cousens
Amazon

Dr. Cousens is an MD that has turned away from the western approach to medicine and instead relies on raw foods and spiritual healing. Rainbow Cuisine provides an astonishing amount of thought and actual case studies that show (in picture form) how cancer can be healed in 3 months on the proper raw diet. The pictures of blood cells under a microscope point to the various types of disease and fungus that can form under the wrong conditions (SAD eating) vs pure healthy blood (raw eating). Very eye opening and hard to keep your head in the sand with the pictures as proof.

The Raw Food Detox Diet: The Five-Step Plan for Vibrant Health and Maximum Weight Loss
by Natalia Rose
Amazon

This is a great book for beginners. I think it is very smart to start slowly by adding in more healthy foods to your diet and allowing the unhealthy foods to fall away. This book takes you step by step and is excellent if weight loss is your goal. If you are more interested in being healthy and want to jump right in head first then this is not for you.

Sweet Deception
by Joseph Mercola
Amazon

I read Dr. Mercola’s website daily so I am a big fan. It was a long time coming when I found this book while visiting my father’s house and had nothing else to read. I knew if I read it I would no longer be able to drink soda and was holding out for some kind of miracle. The excellent information on sugar substitutes is truly mind blowing and the parts about High Fructose Corn Syrup did the trick. I have not had a soda or any kind of sweetener that is not raw since.

The Coconut Oil Miracle
by Bruce Fife
Amazon

I eat coconuts everyday and love them. Coconut oil is the healthiest oil you can consume because it is so closely related in structure to human breast milk. It is one of the very few oils that can be heated without becoming rancid and it causes your body to burn fat. Need I say more??

Eating for Beauty
by David Wolfe
Amazon

Ok so the title seems off putting, I agree and only bought it because I had a gift card to a book store and had to buy something. With that, I am so glad I did because again David has created another masterpiece of raw learning. I really lingered reading this book and enjoyed every minute. This is where I learned about some of the more esoteric supplements that I had already heard about but had no idea what they were good for.

Green for Life
by Victoria Boutenko
Amazon

This is one of the first books I bought on raw eating and it pushed me to buy a Vita-Mix and begin eating a lot healthier. There are many recipes in the back of the book for green smoothies which makes it an essential book for anyone wanting better health.

Become Younger
by Norman Walker
Amazon

Although this book was written in a different era the principals remain the same. This book was way ahead of it’s time and Norman Walker is probably considered the original raw foodist. Despite it’s age I learned plenty of new information on the different kinds of healing raw food can effect.

Charcoal Remedies
by John Dinsley
Amazon

This book offers many simple remedies using activated charcoal. It can be used to clear out toxins from the body safely and easily including many poisons. Stomach disorders and most intestine related disorders can show a significant improvement. I feel better able to focus and feel clear headed when I take it.
