About this book
Get with Natasha's program: a vegan cookbook that provides a multi-faceted approach to health and nutrition.
The road to good health through proper diet and nutrition can lead down many paths; you may ask yourself, should I go vegan? Follow a gluten-free regimen? Should I eat raw or cooked foods? Natasha Kyssa, author of The SimplyRaw Living Foods Detox Manual, offers all this and more in this inspiring collection of mostly raw, whole-foods recipes that will improve your health, no matter what your age. Natasha is a former international fashion model who transformed her unhealthy lifestyle by turning to raw foods almost twenty-five years ago; she is now a raw foods consultant and restaurateur. Natasha promotes a balanced, flexible diet designed for individual constitutions and based on fresh plant foods―gluten-free, toxin-free, and simply delicious. Her regimen also takes into consideration older folks and others who cannot tolerate an all-raw diet by including cooked foods. It's a cookbook and lifestyle guide to be shared between generations, much like Natasha and her mother, who contributes vegan versions of central European classics like borscht, mushroom goulash, cabbage rolls, and lovage dumplings. Other recipes include raw soups, cakes, and puddings, as well as a raw Pad Thai and spaghetti Bolognese.

I feel like the very best years of my life are still ahead of me, and moving forward I know I can share with my own family her recipes, stories, and knowledge. I am blessed to have Natasha as a friend and a mentor. I am nourished and grateful.

—Rich Roll, vegan athlete and author of Finding Ultra
I applaud the latest book by vegan and raw food evangelist Natasha Kyssa ... Natasha's kitchen [offers] a new repertoire of mostly bright, beckoning flavours I had no idea could be achieved minus the usual burners, oven or even a modest hotplate.
A good guide for anyone wanting to go high raw or looking for more plant-based goodness in general. The recipes are plentiful and pictures drool-worthy.
