The Boutenko family embarked on a diet of entirely raw foods
in 1994, when they became seriously ill. This diet enabled
them to heal all of their health problems. Now, Victoria travels
all over the world sharing her inspiring story and teaching
classes on the raw-food diet. Based on the latest scientific
research, Victoria Boutenko explains the numerous benefits
of choosing a diet of fresh rather than cooked foods.
Embracing the raw food lifestyle is more than simply turning
off the stove. Such a radical change in the way we eat affects
all aspects of life. Victoria touches on the human relationship
with nature, the value of supporting others, and the importance
of living in harmony with people who don't share the same
point of view on eating.
