The 80/10/10 Diet

The book that started it all for me. The 80/10/10 Diet is written by Dr. Douglas N. Graham who has been living the low-fat, raw vegan lifestyle for well over 20 years. What I love most about this book is that it doesn't  say "Here's what a select few people have experienced," instead it gives well-documented data and facts. I also love the testimonies in the back of the book from people who eat this diet. It's a great book and a great read!

The China Study

This is an excellent book for those interested in the science/ biology side of things. The author, T. Colin Campbell, PhD, takes over 40 years of research that was done in clinical and scientific studies conducted in China (as well as well-documented studies in other parts of the world) on the effects of a low-fat vegan (not raw) diet verses a standard diet. He combines this information into a book that is understandable and quite an interesting read. I recommend this as a great resource book for those who have detailed questions on the "whys" and "hows" of nutrition's role in the human body.

Nutrition and Athletic Performance

This book is also written by Dr. Graham. I would consider this book a simplified version of The 80/10/10 Diet with an emphasis on athletics. It's an easy read and an excellent book for those wanting to up their athletic performance.

Love the idea of eating raw, but not sure where to begin? How about start where I started! The title of her first book Easy To Be Raw is true to its name. No need for special ingredients or a dehydrator, these recipes are perfect for those wanting better health and energy. So, whether you're super busy or you have time to make special creations, grab a copy of one of her books. You'll find her recipes are perfect for everyone!
