Introducing 'The Best of Raw Freedom Community' Ebook

 In honor of Raw Freedom Community Forum’s first year anniversary, what better way to celebrate than to shine the spotlight on its many talented recipe creators?

I am thrilled to announce the release of my second ebook, “The Best Of Raw Freedom Community”, a collective work featuring 99 recipes contributed by myself and 20 other RFC members.

This ebook has turned into a bit of a mega project; 160 pages of delicious raw recipes and related useful information. In a nutshell, here's what you will find in “The Best Of Raw Freedom Community” :

  • A list of ingredients frequently used in raw food preparation
  • A thorough guide on how to equip your raw kitchen
  • A detailed table of contents
  • Gorgeous mouth-watering photos for nearly every recipe
  • Clickable page references for easy navigation
  • Helpful 'uncooking' tips
  • A list of raw resources and links on the Net

Let's see... What am I forgetting? Ah yes... The recipes!

This unique ebook features many favorite recipes posted on Raw Freedom Community Forum and my Sunny Raw Kitchen blog over the last 12 months. In addition, there are 24 new exclusive recipes, including those Heathy of the Adventures of Raw Goddess Heathy's blog and I created during our uncooking marathon last fall.

Since, as they say, an image is worth a thousand words, how about starting off with some eye candy?

Here are just a few of the delectable creations featured in "The Best Of Raw Freedom Community" ebook:

Peach Melba Smoothie

Corn Chowder

All profits generated from "The Best Of Raw Freedom Community" ebook will be going towards spreading awareness of Raw and Freedom as well as continuing to build Community.

In radiance and health,
P.S. To find out what people are saying about "The Best Of Raw Freedom Community", go to this thread.


  1. Oooh!! I am soooo excited for this! I WILL be buying this! I just know it's gonna be great (I mean if your blog is amazing you know the book is!). Thank you so much for your hard work in putting this together.

  2. Congrats on completing such a big project! I'm looking forward to purchasing one when I'm back in Toronto.


  3. I am going to promote this on my blog right away. I love your recipes and it will be so awesome to have everything in one place now! Thank you for putting this together!


  4. Congratulations on an amazing accomplishment! Thank you for everything you do for the Raw community :)

  5. I am thinking about buying the e-book, but I do have a question though: I don't have a dehydrator. Will I still be able to make most of the recipes?


  6. Thanks everyone! I sure feel like a mamma who's just given birth! ;-)

    Most of the recipes don't need a dehydrator, such as the beverages, soups, sides and spreads and nearly all the desserts. In many of the entrees, the 'D' is either not necessary or could be skipped altogether. The only section where the D is required for all of the recipes is the 'Breads&Crackers' section.

    Raw blessings,

  7. Oh. My. Goodness. YUM! What a blessing that you're offering this. Thank you so very much. :o)
