The Raw Food Revolution Diet

The Raw Food Revolution Diet by Cherie Soria, Brenda Davis RD, and Vesanto Melina MS/RD. The book was published by Book Publishing Company.

First thing I want to tell you is that I am going to do the 3 week Fast Track program as listed in the book. I will keep you posted on my progress and then when the 3 weeks are up I will post my final thoughts. I am starting tomorrow.

This book is full of lots of great information. I have enjoyed reading it very much. The recipes look amazing and I plan on trying out the bread first thing- so stay tuned for how that turns out.
