"Gabriel Cousens, M.D., has once again contributed to the much-needed re-education of humanity. The research and practical advice, along with the recipes from the Tree of Life Cafe in Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine, help people awaken to a new understanding and regain control of their internal environment."
—Christopher Yashpal Jayne, N.D.

"Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine describes the holistic healing process of biological alchemy. It is a gift for us in how to live in these biologically toxic times."
—Richard Harvey and Mary Huston, Directors of Life Works


Medical researchers have found that a high-fat, high-sugar diet, combined with environmental pollutants and stress, can lead to a buildup of toxins in the body collectively known as chronic degenerative disease. Here holistic physician Gabriel Cousens addresses the dangers of foods that have been genetically modified, treated with pesticides, microwaved, and irradiated—and presents an alternative diet of whole, natural, organic, and raw foods that can reverse chronic disease and restore vitality.

Both a guide to natural health and a cookbook, Rainbow Green Live-Food Cuisine features over 250 revolutionary vegan recipes from chefs at the Tree of Life Cafe, from Buttery Butternut Porridge to Raw-violis to Carob Coconut Cream Eclairs. Combining modern research on metabolism, ecological consciousness, and a rainbow of live foods, Dr. Cousens dishes up comprehensive, practical, and delectable solutions to the woes of the Western diet.

Dr. Cousens' work with healing type 2 diabetes and other diseases through raw food can be seen in the documentary "30 days of raw". This book outlines his basic theories, but the majority of the book is on raw recipes. His dehydrated croquettes are amazing! All these recipes are from what they serve in his Tree of Life retreat. It's great how he incorporates Ayurvedic principles even when going raw. Highly recommended as a raw food classic text.

HASH(0x8fbefe10) von 5 Sternen These are the best recipes 6. April 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I normally don't write reviews at all, but this book certainly deserves one. The highlights:
* It doesn't consists of all these sweet recipes but has great tasting alternatives (I could never get into all that sweet stuff); there are no dates, bananas, etc., and there are some good explanations as to why
* The recipes don't require a lot of strange ingredients of which I never even heard before; ingredients are easily found
* You don't have to plan days ahead of time to just produce one dish; a lot of it can be put together quickly
* It does have its share of nuts, but for some reason I don't resent that here as I did in most of my other books; they don't seem to be everywhere
* There are NO wheat recipes (yeah!); I'm terribly allergic to that... Instead there are lots of recipes with flax seeds, and there is a very good explanation as to why wheat/grains are not used.
I ordered two other books at the same time I got this one and I already owned two raw food books, but this one is the only one I use. The recipes appeal to me much more than the ones in the other books. There still are tools that are necessary for the raw food kitchen, like a dehydrator, juicer, high-speed blender, etc., but there is a section in the beginning that outlines which ones they recommend.

HASH(0x8fbf1294) von 5 Sternen Most up-to-date and insightful live-food book available 17. September 2003
Von Jason Schreiner - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I received my copy hot off the press only a few days ago and already it is quite evident that Gabriel and the Tree of Life chefs have provided us with the best live-food book currently existing. The few recipes I have tried are outstanding, and I am having a difficult time deciding which to try next, since all of them appeal to me.
Perhaps the single best thing about this book are Gabriel's updates concerning live-food nutrition. Though he frequently cites Conscious Eating for a more thorough discussion of many topics, Gabriel also extends his previous theoretical insights with new, exciting evidence published for the first time. His extended discussion of mycosis and the concept of a "compost button" vis-a-vis body metabolism are particularly intriguing. For instance, Gabriel cites the brilliant work of Dr. Robert Young (cf the book, Sick and Tired?) as support for the fact that high-glycemic foods, including many of our favorite raw fruits (e.g. dates, mangoes, bananas, etc.), create biological conditions favorable for the proliferation in our blood of bacteria, yeasts, fungus, molds and other nasties whose primary function is to compost dead matter. So long as we continue eating foods that undermine the vibrancy of our internal biological terrain, our "compost button" remains switched "on" and organisms which compromise our health continue their nasty business. Gabriel provides vivid evidence of this process of degeneration by presenting a series of color photographs that clearly show, via darkfield microscopy, the breakdown of our red blood cells and the proliferation of bacteria, yeasts, fungus and molds. Only by switching our "compost button" to the "off" position, via rainbow green live-food cuisine can we transform our biological terrain and reverse the process of mycosis.
Gabriel outlines how rainbow green live-food cuisine in particular, and not mere raw foods and live-foods per se, facilitates the transition away from mycosis to a friendly biological terrain and optimal health. He identifies three phases, beginning with low-glycemic foods, that we can follow in this process. Most importantly, the authors designate each recipe according to which phase it supports, meaning that we know precisely which recipes we can follow contingent upon where we are in the process of transition. And, Gabriel discusses how he himself, and everyone at the Tree of Life, altered their live-food diets by beginning Phase I and transitioning through Phase I.5 to Phase II, which is the lifelong maintenance diet. In an through this process, Gabriel and his staff experienced even more energy and feelings of well-being than experienced on their previous live-food diets. In other words, rainbow green live-food cuisine is NOT mere "live-food" but a specific, unique approach to live-food preparation and eating.
Finally, of particular importance for the live-food movement is the presentation of burgeoning evidence in support of the fact that Excalibur dehydrators require higher temperature settings (e.g. 145 degrees) during the initial stages of dehydration and then need to be adjusted down to the usual temperatures (e.g. 95-115 degrees) live-food preparation previously utilized from start to finish. The authors note that more research concerning this issue is currently underway as part of the Master's program in Vegan Live-Food Nutrition (see the Tree of Life site for more info about this program). Nevertheless, the recipes in the book reflect this new research, so adherents to live-food preparation ought not to be confused by the recipe instructions calling for higher intial temperatures (in other words, read the intro chapters!).
In short, an awesome book that is accessible and highly informative, and a must have for both long-time live-foodists and those interested in the possibilities for using live-foods to improve their health and experience optimal well-being. Hurray for Gabriel and everyone who contributed to this beautiful, insightful book! Thanks!!!

HASH(0x8fbf12b8) von 5 Sternen Is it really raw? 3. Februar 2005
Von PHEONIX - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I've been eating raw for over a month now, only using this book and still haven't managed to eat all the recipes. I find my-self asking constantly: Is this REALLY a raw food dish? You'd never believe you were eating living cuisine.
Most praise this book for it's simlicity. I personally don't find it exactly simple but then again I have never used any other raw uncook book before. I'm dissapointed to some degree though and sometimes feel chained to my kitchen. At times like that I simple look for a quick recipe and just throw something together and guess still tastes amazing.
I love the first part of the book as well. It's wonderful to see how complete his research is and to be encouraged to make raw cuisine personal to your body, mind and spiritual needs. Most people don't eat raw the right way because they don't know there's a better way. Cousens does and he's not afraid to share it!
Buy this book, change your life.

HASH(0x8fbf15dc) von 5 Sternen The Definitive Book on the Raw Foods Diet, with Recipes! 12. April 2005
Von Michael Snyder - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
How to transform your life in record time with
the most delicious and energetic food on the
planet! This book is an essential addition to
the library of any serious student of health.
It is my favorite book on health and nutrition.
It also contains some of the best recipes I've made.

If you want to learn about health, you must study
those who have mastered the art of healthy living.
You must look to the world's best health and healing
retreats: "The Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center" in
Arizona, and "Hippocrates Health Institute" in Florida.

Brian Clement is the director of Hippocrates and his
book, Living Foods for Optimum Health, is required
reading. Dr. Gabriel Cousens is the director of the
Tree of Life. Rainbow Green contains the diet used at
the Tree of Life for healing and rejuvenation.

I use the recipes in Rainbow Green daily. The cakes,
cookies, soups, salad dressings, nut milks, pates,
sauces, fermented foods, crackers, and other recipes
are easy and delicious. I also enjoy making the vegan
kefir drinks, KimChi, and essential oil delicacies.

Rainbow Green discusses how there are microscopic
organisms in the blood such as yeast, mold, fungus,
and bacteria. These organisms enter the blood through
various food and beverages and they contribute to poor
health. They they are fed by foods high in sugar, and
they thrive in an acidic body.

In Rainbow Green you'll discover how to alkalinize your
body to prevent the microorganisms from growing. You'll
discover which foods to eat and which to avoid for
optimal health. Rainbow Green foods are classified low-
glycemic, high-mineral, and high-vibrational foods.

I also enjoy the chapters on how to raise babies and
children on a raw foods diet. One chapter discusses
how to reduce jet stress, jet lag, and it gives various
yoga poses for the airplane. You'll discover how to
sprout, how to grow high mineral organic foods, why it
is essential to eat organic foods, effects of pesticides
on children, the many benefits of enzymes, How to
dramatically increase your life-span using the secrets
of a Calorie Restricted Diet, modern research on living
foods and superfoods, how to travel on a raw foods diet,
what kitchen appliances you'll need for your kitchen, and more.

Give this diet a try and I guarantee you'll experience the
greatest health of your life. Even if you don't do the diet
100%, you'll fall in love with these recipes.

HASH(0x8fbf1708) von 5 Sternen The Best Program in Raw Foodism 19. November 2005
Von tzara - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I consider Gabriel Cousens to be the most tenable among the proselytizers of live food/raw food nutrition. I say proselytizer not necessarily as a pejorative but to describe that Cousens is advancing a particular program as a believer to convert others. All authors of diet books do this, of course, so this book, like any other, should be approached with a healthy skepticism. Some of the science in the opening chapters may seem hokey, but I think that the general principles that shape Cousens' dietary regimen are quite reasonable. For instance, he is very attentive to the pitfalls of a high glycemic diet, which is why his recipes do not contain many fruits (bananas, mangoes, etc) and dates, the latter a food that is overused in many raw food recipe books. Sweeteners are also quite limited and he doesn't use much agave nectar, an ingredient used in just about everything by some rawfoodists. This is a recipe book that is very sensible and healthier than most, raw food or otherwise. It is also perfect for those suffering from yeast overgrowth.

All this being said, the book is not without problems. Because Cousens desires simultaneously to espouse a strict vegan diet AND be mindful of the individuals have different dietary needs (metabolic typing/Ayurveda), he has to do some odd contortions. Protein types, he believes, can get all the protein they need from nuts and seeds but he doesn't seriously consider that with such sources of protein comes a lot of fat, so the percentage breakdown of macronutrients (carbs, fat, protein) for such types doesn't quite add up. And he also quickly wishes away the Ayurveda use of meat for some people and rather monomaniacally insists that a raw vegan diet is doable if not ideal for everyone. It's fine if Cousens advocates a vegan diet for ethical reasons but to prescribe such a diet for all people as one supporting optimal health seems unsupportable, even according to his own reasoning, and perhaps irresponsible. The fuller case that Cousens makes for veganism and livefoodism in the new edition of Spiritual Nutrition doesn't do much to dispel this problem and others.

Now live-foodism clearly has much to recommend it, so I say all this as someone who is not at all hostile to many of its precepts. And Cousens's recipes are generally easy to prepare (although you will need a dehydrator, high-speed blender, homogenizing juicer, and food processor to take full advantage), use readily available indredients, healthful, and often delicious. There are some problems with the recipes, however, which more careful proofreading could have corrected. Very often the amounts of some ingredients, such as salt and oils, are way off (tablespoons are indicated instead of teaspoons, etc.). I've made a lot of the recipes in this book and always proceed with caution and recommend not adding immediatley the full amounts of oils, salt, and spices indicated and let common sense and taste be your guide. If you do this and use the recipes as a starting point, you will consistently have good results--at least that's been my experience.

One other problem with this book is its construction. Soon after I got the book, pages started to come loose from the spine. Over a year later about half the pages are detached--rather a nuisance. And I treated this book as I treat all my books, with great care. I've heard similar reports from other owners of this book, so this may not be an isolated problem. If after getting it you discover that pages are coming loose, return it and get another one before Amazon's return period expires. (I emailed the publisher over a month ago about this problem but have yet to hear back from them.)

Overall, this is a book that I very much recommend to rawfoodists, dabblers, and just those interested in eating more healthily and who are open to trying something new.
