Raw Magic- Recipes for the Revolution by Kate Magic Wood
Recipes for the revolution, by Kate Magic Wood
Miss Magic explains in the book: Although most people have heard of superfoods, there is some confusion over what the term actually means. I would classify them as natural plant foods which have two primary qualities: firstly, they are exceptionally high in nutrition and thereby provide the body with increased energy, and secondly, they have special intrinsic properties which can enhance our lives greatly. In my book, broccoli and blueberries are not superfoods! They may be very healthy food choices, but they don’t have the super-charged density and vitality of true superfoods. True superfoods really can transform you into a superbeing!
I saw a preview of the new book! It’s the new religion. Kate, I am so proud to know you. Now I know why you kept your mouth shut for so many years, waited patiently, then BAMN! Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. I love U." — Kirsty Hawkshaw AKA KFH Pooraka
"I got the book, it is the best I have ever read on raw – sooo informative and interesting. Thank you so much!" — Sri Dimond, Lifescape magazine
"For a paperback’, this is a real heavyweight with approximately 300 pages of glossy loveliness. What may first appear as a mantra, is actually just an alternative and beneficial way to eat, using healthy foods to bring benefits that can only be seen by giving it a go. All the theory is well explained and each quirkily titled recipe has a fantastic photo to boot, making it something Kate Magic Wood should be truly proud of." — From Bump To Grump
"I am in LOVE! With Kate’s new book. I need to get an order in!"
— Alan Martin, owner of Food For Thought
"Raw Magic is ESSENTIAL to any modern kitchen, it teaches the fundamentals on real superfoods like raw chocolate (yes that’s right!), crystal manna, purple corn, gojiberries, etc, and how to add them into your life for instant results, in ways that can only really be understood by experiencing the magic first hand. Kate is one of the few food authors who really knows what she’s doing, understands the effects of food on the body and genuinely cares about people’s health and happiness; she has dedicated her whole life to it. Kate uncovers many of the world’s best kept secrets in Raw Magic!"
— Rochelle Vincente Von K, Product.01

This is the food of the gods, this is the food to turn us into superbeings who save humanity from disaster in a tidal wave of love and positivity. Raw Magic is Kate’s third recipe book. But this is far from any ordinary recipe book, indeed, the world has never seen anything like it before.
We are really ecstatic to be publishing this book for Kate and for you! We’ve spared no expense creating a full colour book, with almost every recipe spectacularly photographed. In fact, our Managing Director, Shazzie, is so passionate about photography, that she took most of the photos herself! As well as photographing the most revolutionary food on the planet, Shazzie has integrated some stunning portraits. You may recognise some of our superstars: David Wolfe, Goji Girl, Rochelle Von Rockstar from Product.01, Matt Monarch, Gela Stokes, plus Kate and Shazzie themselves.
There are some foods that have the power to change your life. There are certain foods that when you eat them, your body is in heaven, your cells start singing, your mind becomes ecstatic. "Yes," they cry in unison, "Yes, these are the foods that I have been waiting for. These are the foods that I have been craving, that my body has been missing my whole life." Sometimes, it is a particular nutrient you have been lacking. But more often with these foods it is their synergistic properties. They have a magical energy which comes not only from the nutritional combination they contain, but from the way they are grown, the lands they are from, their history. Many of them are sacred plants in their countries of origin.
There are many amazing foods I have omitted from this book, foods that are more commonly recognised as superfoods: vegetables like broccoli, kale and cucumbers, fruits like cranberries, blueberries and grapefruit, sprouts like lentils, sunflower or alfalfa. I was tempted to include avocadoes and olives, buckwheat and oats, all foods I eat on a daily basis. But these are foods that most of us are familiar with, and if you are not then there are plenty of books out there that do cover them. This book is about the new breed of superfoods which are unique to the West in the 21st century. Never before have we had access to such a wide variety of plant foods. Some of them we are accustomed to in different forms, like cacao; others have been around for a few decades now, like Spirulina; some are widely known in their country of origin, but novel to the UK, like goji berries; and some others are utterly brand new to us, like purple corn. When I was a child, avocadoes and kiwis were considered exotic, now they are standard fare in every shopping basket. I believe that such is the potency and vitality of the foods in this book that as people catch on to them, they are going to revolutionise the way we eat, shop and live.
These foods are transformative foods. By eating such high potency foods they change the very nature of our reality. They affect our consciousness and raise our energetic level to a degree that has profound implications on all areas of our lives. It is not possible to eat these foods on a daily basis and not feel altered. We live in a culture which is intrinsically false; fuelled on junk food, media lies, false gods and political whores, we have forgotten how to be our true selves. These foods help us realign, connect with who we really are, and tune into our higher selves. It becomes increasingly harder not to live in our power when we eat this way, and this can be a hard adjustment to make in a world where the individual is fundamentally disempowered. Revealing our inner core is usually painful, as we let the masks of self-deception slip away, we have to let go of people and life situations which have been holding us back and preventing us being fully who we are. It is a scary thing to do, to step into our truth and reclaim our birthright when we have been taught our whole lives to avoid truth at all costs, to keep up the facades and not rock the boat. But the more of us who make these choices, the easier it becomes. And the more we attract into our lives people who have made the same choices and appreciate us for who we honestly are.
Rocking the boat is what we are here to do! Isn’t it exciting and exhilarating when you stand up for what you truly believe in? Our time has come, and the old ways are not working anymore. Paradigms are crumbling and new ones are rising in their place. As we understand eternal truths, we see the world for what it is, and understand how desperately things need to change. We align with our higher purpose, the divine intelligence, and see what our life’s path is. What mission have we been given? What is our role here at this time? It is to wake the world up, to guide humanity through the massive shifts and changes that are taking place. And of course, that starts with ourselves. We must awaken ourselves, and we must keep the balance between being fully awake i.e. masters of our own reality, knowing that we create everything with our own energy, taking full responsibility for our lives as a manifestation of our own inner state of being; and between being of service, helping to awaken the sleeping masses, and doing everything we can to help people through these times. And you know what the best part is? It’s fun. Believe it or not, the universe actually wants us to be happy, it doesn’t want us to suffer. And the more we work with the universe, the happier we become, the less we suffer.
