A day-by-day guide to clean, raw eating from author Mimi Kirk and her daughter, Mia
Mimi Kirk was religious about eating all raw for many years. But then one day she started including some cooked foods to her diet. The habit started when she was traveling and was crunched for time. She began to gain weight, and feel stiff and sluggish. At age 77, might seem expected, but Kirk was renowned for her youthful vigor and visage. It was time to reclaim raw in her life.
She discovered that her daughter, Mia, had also fallen off the raw food wagon but wanted to get back to that healthy lifestyle. Living in different cities, they committed to 21-days of raw food eating, to reset and restore. They wanted a good, solid plan that would work with their busy schedules. They wanted to create easy meals that would fit into a set menu, but that allowed them to mix and match foods. It was so successful, they had to share. Here’s the easy-to-follow plan, with 75 recipes, shopping lists, make-ahead prep ideas, and tips for eating on the go.
