Eating for Beauty was written with raw food enthusiasts in mind. The raw food diet is most certainly about beauty: the beauty of nature, the beauty of health, and the beauty of body, mind and soul. David Wolfe, the author of Eating for Beauty, is a shining example of beauty and health in the raw food movement. He has been a leading authority and educator on raw foods for years. In this book, he reveals how to shine with the beauty that is already present within you.When I first heard that David Wolfe had written a book titled Eating for Beauty, I was a bit put off. I thought it was going to be shallow, just focusing on how to be more physically attractive. But as I read this book from cover to cover, I was quite impressed. He makes a very logical point that by the eating certain foods, we are in fact creating a certain person. We are made from the food we eat, in a very literal sense. The more life force we eat, the more life force we will have in our bodies. The body uses vitamins and minerals to nourish our organs, such as the skin, hair and eyes. Clear, glowing skin, strong nails and bright eyes are all signs of a healthy, well nourished body, and they're all benefits of a raw food diet.David Wolfe goes into great detail about some of the most beautifying foods on the planet. He dedicates a section to each of the following: aloe vera, arugula, burdock, coconuts, cucumbers, durian, figs, hemp seeds, macadamia nuts, nettles, olives, onions, papaya, pumpkin seeds, radishes, turmeric, and watercress. These foods contain high amounts of "beauty minerals," like silicon and sulfur. They are also very cleansing and energizing. Papaya is especially high in natural enzymes, and durian contains tryptophan, an amino acid that helps elevate seretonin levels in the brain.
