Here's Laura Miller, in her own words, from the introduction of her new book, Raw. Vegan. Not Gross.:
"What I love about raw food is the juiciness and pleasure it adds to everyday life. Eating a mango on your lunch break, scooping the meat out of a coconut in your kitchen, breaking open a pomegranate and watching the seeds burst out -- each of these experiences is grounding and connects you to nature in a tangible way."
She is unapologetic about the way she cooks and eats: "I am not fully raw. I'm madly in love with raw food, but I don't have the time, money, or energy to eat raw all the time. It can be incredibly laborious and isolating to try to plan out every single meal in advance because you know you won't be able to find anything you 'can eat' at work, while traveling, or at a restaurant. Eating cheeseburgers for every meal isn't healthy, but you know what's also unhealthy? Being constantly stressed about your diet!"
Laura Miller offers hope, inspiration and a practical guide to eating healthier right now. Her recipe book just debuted in May and she will be entertaining a curious and hungry audience here at Denver Public Library on Saturday, June 11 at 1 p.m. in our Central Library Conference Center. Seating is limited, RSVP here or call 720-865-1205. Local vegan eatery, Watercourse, will be preparing two desserts from Laura's new book for you to sample. Books will be available to purchase from Tattered Cover at the event. And Laura will be signing your books, too!
