The raw food diet is a derivative of most vegan and vegetarian diets, and it is based on the belief that the most healthy food for the body is uncooked. Although most meals are eaten raw, heating food is acceptable as long as the temperature stays below 40 °C (104 °F) to 46 °C (115 °F).
Cooking is thought to denature the enzymes naturally present in food. According to raw foodists, enyzymes are the life force of a food, helping us to digest food and absorb nutrients. If we consume too much cooked food, our bodies are forced to work harder by producing more enzymes. Over time, a lack of enzymes from food is thought to lead to digestive problems, nutrition deficiency, accelerated aging, and weight gain.
Cooking food can also diminish its nutritional value. For example, the cancer-fighting compounds in broccoli, sulforaphanes, are greatly reduced when broccoli is cooked. Certain vitamins, such as vitamin C and folate, are destroyed by heat.
Cooking also promotes the formation of potentially harmful compounds in food during high heat cooking, such as advanced glycation end products and heterocyclic amines.
A raw food plan is by nature low in fat, and this cookbook is a free and easy way to get your started on leveraging the power found in eating these super foods.

What's New in Version 1.9
- Fixed minor bugs;
- Improved stability.
Unlisted ingredients; cooked food
The main problem with this app is that not all ingredients of the recipes are listed. Sometimes you can tell because in the recipes instructions it mentions items that were not on the ingredient list. Other times, even the recipes title ingredient is left off the list! I upgraded to the paid version of this app in hopes that this would no longer be an issue, but no such luck.
The app is other downfall is that many of the recipes are not raw! The cooked ingredients are justified by saying that "it is a special occasion" or that "it is okay because the cooked ingredients comprise only 25% of the recipe." (It is not clear whether that is 25% of the calories or of the volume of the recipe.)
Many serious rawists would consider other recipes unsuitable as well, as many of them contain highly processed, packaged ingredients, and/or have a high-fat content.
Here's the thing. I don't think any of us have such a difficult time finding recipes that feature cooked ingredients, that we need to include them in an app that is supposed to be about raw food. If you are new to raw foods, or just want to incorporate more uncooked fruits and veggies into your diet, you may be fine with this; I myself would prefer only raw recipes in my raw food app.
Either way, save the 1.99 for an app that tells you what ingredients you are expected to use in the recipes.
Could be good
I like the recipes, however there is no recipe box to save them in. Highlighting the star doesn't do anything other than flag me that I might or do like the recipe. The number of recipes are limited as well (I have the paid version!. More importantly, this app is not for a novice, which I am. It does not give any hints as to what to eat to get a balanced diet. You have to be well educated in your nutrition needs to figure out how to eat these foods and still get all the nutrients you need. All of that being said, many if the recipes do look good and I will give some of them a try.
I'm not raw but I'm stiving to be. This is a great app to have on hand for meal/snack inspiration. My issue is when I save recipes, they're not saved when I get back to the app at a later time. I have the paid version too. Also, I agree with a previous review about tracking results and a meal planning component would be fantastic to ease my constant question of: am I eating enough of the right foods? Can I combine these two? Cheers!
