I'm excited about my newest book Ani's Raw Food Essentials, available everywhere by May 3rd. It's a huge hard cover book with over 250 recipes. It's printed in 2 color, like Ani's Raw Food Kitchen. My goal is to make my books accessible, and get these recipes into your hands so you can enjoy making healthy treats with them. By printing in 2 color instead of full color, the book only costs $27 rather than $45. There's gorgeous color inserts, as you can see from the photos above.

My new book, Ani's Raw Food Essentials, will be available everywhere May 3rd! I was dropped shipped an early copy fresh off the presses, and this is a huge book. With over 250 recipes, it's my first hard cover. It's always amazing to hold the finished book in my hands. And, it takes 9 months for the book to be designed, printed, and distributed before it shows up in bookstores. A long journey.
