Life force foods are those found wild in nature and served uncooked. A life force diet is vegetarian, and mainly vegan, congruent with the philosophy that good food choices promote a sustainable future on the planet. This book applies life food principles to daily life. The authors explain how the LifeFood diet can contribute to a new way of living and show how to make lotions, tinctures, and potions with food.
With illustrations throughout and over 150 easy to follow recipes, this book features such dishes as Aztec Quiche, Emerald Broccoli Soup, Spicy Ginger Tofu, and Pina Colada Cookies.
About the Authors
Annie Jubb and Dr. David Jubb have authored nine books together, including LifeFood Recipe Book, along with five training manuals for their Whole Brain Functioning adventure-based learning program taught at retreats and lectures throughout the 1980s and '90s. The Jubbs maintain private practices in New York City and Los Angeles.
This being one of the more niche books of the raw/living foods genre, it was not until I had been at least two years into it had I bothered to pick it up. I was pleasently surprised when I leafed through this gem. The recipes in here are out of this world. There are many little tidbits of information which are thrown in just for your information.
So, the beginning of the book is a preperation for your kitchen, what to have in the way of equipment and condiments that are frequently used. When that is out of the way, they jump right into the principles of what Lifefood actually is and some more information on why to choose Lifefood.
The recipe portion is quite expansive and inventive. I applaude Annie for her intuitive recipes and the massive abundance of flavour they bring to every meal. By far my favorite recipes have to be the "Sweet Thai Tomato Soup", which by the way I recommend with extra cayenne pepper, and the Teriyaki Pate, which is just fantastic on some sheets of nori with extra greens and cucumber or rolled up in a collard leaf.
The desserts are out of this world. Recipes like the "Phat Black Sorbet", which consists of dark cherries and other delictables, are just incredible and really make this book stand out.
The Lifefood fasts they outline are good and provide a solid platform for anyone to begin their experiences of purging, cleansing and fasting with. They are nutritional fasts, meaning you dont go hungry but are still giving your digestive system a rest. The Lifefood fasts typically consist of a two week protocol where you consume only liquids (blended soups, smoothies, juices, sorbets, liquid salads and Lifefood beverages like Electrolyte Lemonade) for a period of two weeks while you do a couple liver Flushes and a couple Gallbladder flushes.
My personal experience with the Gallbladder flushes in incredible. I am so glad that I have done them. My digestion has improved immensely and my metabolism has gone up. I have already done two and am going to start the third one soon.
The other major cleanse this book outlines is a parasite flush. This regimine is an easy one that almost everyone should consider and consult their alternative healthcare practitioner (like a Licensed Accupunctureist, a Naturopath or a Chiropractor) with. I highly suggest it and have noticed great improvement since starting it.
Overall I believe that Annie Padden Jubb and David Jubb have done a wonderful job on this book. Their knowledge of recipe synergy, knowledge of colloidal physiology and overall understanding of esoteric herbalism makes me give this book a five star rating.
If you wish to get all you can out of this book, make sure you pick up David Jubb's other books "Secrets to an Alkaline Body" and "Jubb's Cell Rejuvenation - Colloidal Biology: A Symbiosis".
This may be one of the most important books you add to your library when it comes to overall understanding of your recipe choices and your health.
