We've been hearing a lot about the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids and the harmful effects of omega-6s, so we were glad to find a book that does a great job explaining both. Plus, with 100 recipes made with ingredients that contain healthy omega-3s, this book makes it easy to change your own diet and habits.
The authors of Raw & Beyond maintained a 100 percent raw diet for years, but all three have independently arrived at the same conclusion: that a totally raw diet is not necessarily the best diet. Recent research has shown that an excess of omega-6 fatty acids can cause inflammation and obesity. A typical raw food diet contains large quantities of nuts and seeds, most of which are extremely high in omega-6s and low in healthy omega-3s. And because omega-3s are easily damaged by heat, anyone whose diet is high in processed foods and oils may have an omega-3 deficiency. This book provides in-depth nutritional information on omega fatty acids as well as 100 recipes that help lead to a more sustainable, healthy, and energetic lifestyle.
