The Standard American Diet is defined by it’s acronym, SAD. In a world where sea-salt covered pretzels and a diet soda are considered healthy alternatives, Marie Sarantakis provides an accessible introductory guide to pure and healthy eating. Marie’s approach is simple and realistic. We need to integrate more raw fresh fruits and vegetables into our diets on a daily basis. This no nonsense guide will answer your basic questions, teach you the fundamental benefits of pure food, and provide you with ten days worth of raw vegan recipes. Life is too short not to eat raw and it’s even shorter if you don’t.
