Living and Eating Organic, Vegan, and RawBook - 2012
Raw food diets have exploded in popularity in recent years; some believe that the cooking process destroys nutrients and even produces dangerous chemicals through the interaction of heat with fat, protein, and carbohydrates. Enter Aaron Ash, a charismatic chef whose organic raw vegan restaurant Gorilla Food has taken Vancouver by storm for its inventive and delicious dishes, all prepared without the use of animal products or a stove. Aaron is a conscientious raw vegan whose beliefs about food are tied to personal and planetary well-being. Gorilla Food strives to promote the idea that a sustainable, healthy culture depends on humankind living as "lightly" as possible, mitigating the damage wrought on the environment and ourselves. Gorilla Food the book is both an innovative meal preparation manual and a raw vegan bible; recipes include a raw lasagna made with zucchini noodles, kale, and a "cheez" made from walnuts, and a delicious bread made with Brazil nuts, fresh vegetables, olives, and coconut "flour". There are also amazing raw pizzas, fruit pies, and chocolate desserts that will delight vegans and non-vegans alike with their surprisingly complex flavors. The book also contains recipes for dehydrated and cultured foods, important for a raw food diet, and surprisingly simple to prepare.
