Does anyone have any good blogs/resources for going (mostly) raw that aren't based in non-science crepe? I have a friend who's interested, but he can't seem to find anything that seems scientifically legitimate and not holistic hoodoo crepe.

choosingraw.com involves both raw and non-raw food and is low on woo.

Haha, thanks for the one response in 3 days. That was my reaction too.

I got the Choosing Raw cookbook, and it seems pretty nice. I haven't made anything out of it yet, but I like how it goes in levels to ease into a mostly raw diet. I don't think I'd ever go completely raw, but I think there's benefits to incorporating more raw foods. I have made something from Ani Phyo's cookbook, and the instructions were easy to follow. It was a recipe for raw 'pancakes' and they were weird, but also kind of good. Just one of those cases where you're like this is NOT pancakes. Like banana soft serve. Kind of good, but NOT soft serve.

I think the problem is that there isn't any medical justification, or enough, for eating an all raw diet, so you just will not find much.

You might want to point your friend to the book Becoming Raw by Brenda Davis R.D.

I have read her books for years. She is very conservative nutritionally. She deals in facts.

People who have reviewed her book have taken it as an endorsement of raw foodism, but reading her words carefully you can see she uses a lot of words like "may" and "possibly" with a lot of the benefits she mentions linked to citations for increased vegetable intake and/or vegetarianism.

Davis is a diplomat, and my GUESS is that she wrote this book as a means of inviting raw foodists "back into the light" of fact based nutrition information.

Someone who is into raw foodism will see this book as being supportive of them. My personal belief is that was intentional with the motivation of getting information to that audience on how to live safely on a raw food diet.

http://www.addictedtoveggies.com/ it's only recipes so there's no woo, but there isn't actual scientific resources that advocate raw food

I borrowed this book from the library, some of the recipes looked nice and simple and there was very little hoodoo.
It states at the beginning that dehydrators are an expensive luxury and the recipes that need dehydrating use the oven instead. I didn't make anything from it as I was specifically after dehydrator recipes though: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Raw-Food-Kitche ... 679&sr=1-1

I also have a copy of Ani's Raw Food Essentials, I will report back once I have had a good look through it

My top two choices for scientifically-grounded advice are Choosing Raw (particularly the cookbook, she uses the first part of the book to dispel myths) and Becoming Raw.

For recipes, I like The Simply Raw Kitchen, which also has cooked recipes:
