About the Author:

Jordan Maerin holds a degree in Philosophy from Michigan State University. She is a raw food enthusiast and sungazer living in San Diego, California, where she has been a contributing writer for Zenger’s newsmagazine. She currently works fulltime at the premier raw food superstore, Nature's First Law, at rawfood.com.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Let's face it. Busy people do not like to prepare food. We generally eat out. A lot.

If you want to eat raw foods but do not want to prepare anything yourself, then you'll subsist on fresh raw fruit and frequent your local salad bars. If you're lucky, you'll live near a raw restaurant. End of story.

However, there are many easy ways to enjoy more variety while eating raw foods. In this book, I discuss strategies for eating out; direct you to some mail order resources for raw prepared foods; and, yes, encourage you to learn some very simple dishes that you can prepare for yourself.

Even the busiest people enjoy some variety in the foods they eat, especially over the long run. Helping you achieve Paradise Health, happily and conveniently, is what this book is all about.

I had two reasons for writing this book.

First, I want to remove the last vestige of an excuse for you to resist embracing the raw food diet: the prep time factor. Secondly, I want to inspire you to become as comfortably functional preparing raw foods in your kitchen as you ever have been preparing cooked foods (maybe even more so!).

Let me give you an example of what I mean. Imagine wanting to prepare a grilled cheese sandwich. Do you refer to a cookbook to find out how much butter you should use on the bread? Do you get out your scale and ask your guest exactly how many ounces of cheese they want on their sandwich? Do you rely on a thermometer to tell you when your skillet is ready to receive the sandwich? Do you again consult a cookbook to find out exactly how long the sandwich should remain on the hot skillet before flipping it to the other side? Of course not!

Instead, you easily assemble the ingredients, eyeball the amount of butter and cheese, throw the sandwich onto the skillet when you're ready, and then peek underneath the bottom piece of bread to determine when you want to flip it.

These have been easy, comfortable rituals, whatever we've learned to do in our kitchens over the course of our lifetimes. It's an ease that we take for granted, until the day we discover a whole new way of eating, like the raw food diet. A new direction like this seems like a curve ball, a speed bump. Suddenly, we feel that the rules have changed, the restrictions multiplied, the machinery become unfamiliar.

With the help of this book, you'll discover that raw food preparation takes much less time than you'd thought. And I've put in some of the time and energy for you, by translating, compiling and creating some very simple recipes, and consolidating them into types that will be easy for you to remember and duplicate.

With this book as your guide, you'll never again come home after an exhausting day and think, "I don't have the time and energy to make something healthy to eat."

Think of this book as your launching pad, as you discover the ease and comfort of preparing the most nutritious foods that nature has to offer, within the comfort of your own home.

Easy, natural, simple. This is the road to Paradise Health.
