July Healthy Cookbook Giveaway

It’s time for my second Healthy Cookbook Giveaway!

This month’s giveaway features a signed copy of Living Raw Food by Sarma Melngailis!


I am not vegan or raw, but I do strive to eat lots of raw foods and I love raw foods cookbooks (“uncookbooks”, really). Living Raw Foods is one of the most beautiful cookbooks that I’ve seen; it is filled with the amazing raw food recipes Sarma serves up in her lovely Manhattan restaurant Pure Food and Wine.

The book is 376 pages long, and gorgeous photos accompany just about every recipe. A few of those that look particularly wonderful to me are the Key Lime Pie Shake, the Chanterelle and Kalamata Olive Ravioli, and the Milk Chocolate Mousse Layer Cake…it’s almost unbelievable what Sarma can do with raw vegan foods…yum, yum, yum!

Did I mention it’s a gorgeous book? Did I mention it is signed by Sarma?

The July Healthy Cookbook Giveaway is going to run from today, July 15th, until July 31st.

To be eligible to win a copy of Living Raw Food, you need to do one of the following:

1. Blog about the Living Raw Food giveaway with a link back to this post

2. Add Healthy Green Kitchen or my website, Healthy Green Lifestyle, to your blogroll.

3. Mention the giveaway on Facebook and/or Twitter with a link back to the blog or the homepage of the website (see above).

4. Submit a healthy recipe to my website.

When you’ve done something to make you eligible to win the book, please leave a comment on any post of the blog letting me know about it – that way, I’ll have your email address for the raffle.

You may leave as many comments as you like, but I can only allow one entry per person.

This contest will close at midnight EST on July 31st, so don’t wait too long to enter!

Make sure to subscribe to the blog because I’ll be featuring 2 recipes from the book next week…

I’ll put all of the email addresses into the raffle and pick a winner at random on August 1st.

Thanks for your participation in the cookbook giveaway…good luck!

    Semi-vegetarian diets consist largely of vegetarian foods, but may include fish or poultry, or sometimes other meats, on an infrequent basis. Those with diets containing fish or poultry may define “meat” only as mammalian flesh and may identify with vegetarianism…,^”
