Before I reveal what the next giveaway is, I need to put out an APB on Sharon who won the last one. It’s been a week since I emailed her the first time and I still don’t have an address. I emailed a second notice this morning and if I don’t hear from that one within another week, I’ll take her name off the list of people who left eligible comments and do another random pick. Now to the business at hand:
This giveaway is special for two reasons. First, my forum friend, Shari, donated books for me to pass on to a lucky person and second, this is a two-fer. The combined value is just about $34. Nomi Shannon’s The Raw Gourmet sells for $16.47 right now. Shazzie’s detox delights isn’t quite so readily available. It’s priced at $9 plus shipping for one new copy and a used one for $14.99 plus shipping. Go figure. If you click on the link to Nomi Shannon’s book, you can read some of the recipes.
The little detox delights has recipes that run the gamut of simple to more complex, no overt fat to fatty. To me, they would perhaps detox someone who was used to eating cooked but (and this is just my opinion) an actual detox would leave off the fatty foods and concentrate more on fruit and greens. There are recipes from both perspectives on the same page:
Turning to The Raw Gourmet, there are some gorgeous photos.
And then there’s the picture that’s also on the front cover. Mouth-watering, for sure.
Even though the title says “gourmet” (which I associate with inadvisable combinations and lots of fat), many of the recipes are optimal right out of the book or can be easily adapted. I don’t agree with absolutely everything in either one of these books but I can pick and choose. We’re all free to do that.
Once again, the rules for the giveaway are posted on the forum. Remember to read the rules carefully and follow them to be able to win!
