When Raw Mom Joanne Newell put together the first ever raw food recipe book for kids, we knew it would be a hit, but we didn’t realize how well-loved and adored this collection would become!  So many kids of all ages have been inspired to get creative in the kitchen and love their veggies served with style, since this book was written.

The daily moments we create now with our children help determine the choices they make in the future.  Monkey Mike’s Un-Cookbook for Kids is the perfect kitchen companion to help make that happen!

This week we have up for grabs 3 copies of Monkey Mike’s Raw Food Kitchen recipe collection. Read on to find out how you can win a copy to inspire the little ones in your life along a path to vibrant living.

Monkey Mike raw food

He’s the new maître d’ at your house and he’s going to get the kids inspired and excited about eating more fresh foods!

Having grown up in the jungles of childhood fairy tales, Monkey Mike is the perfect companion for your child’s discovery of fresh, healthy food preparation. Being a vegetarian raw foodist himself, you can be sure he’ll choose the best foods for ingredients in his recipes, too.

These days, school lunch boxes are packed with more than just a sandwich and a crisp, juicy apple. There are refined blood sugar boosters, hydrolyzed pesticides, hydrogenated herbicides and artificially colored artery blockers!

I don’t mean to be dramatic, but have you noticed that the incidence of food allergies, asthma, ADD, child-onset diabetes and obesity are on the rise?

We’ve got to get back to the basics and get our kids eating more good ol’ fashion fruit and vegetables in their diets.

      I have four free monkeys here, like your approach of freedom with food, even for kids! Kids loved this alien goop recipe book for kids, but it’s all toxic stuff. It looks like your book is written in the style kids want to join on the bandwagon with. The primates here like to eat, like to cook and as unschoolers, they need an UN-cookbook!


    2. By KT Bothwell on Feb 4, 2012

      I like your page on FB!


    3. By Kendra on Feb 4, 2012

      I know my kids would LOVE this! They are much less picky when they help prepare the food. This book would make it fun to be healthy!


    4. By Kendra on Feb 4, 2012

      I just liked your facebook page! Thanks!


    5. By aidatvera on Feb 4, 2012

      I like you on FB! Actually I LOVE you on FB!! xo


    7. By Jennifer Zunino on Feb 4, 2012

      I have 3 monkeys that would love to get in the kitchen and get inspired! This would be such a fun way to get and keep them involved in healthy, exciting, vegan eating!


    8. By Jennifer Zunino on Feb 4, 2012

      and of course …. I “liked” your facebook page :)


    9. By Lendie on Feb 4, 2012

      I’m always searching for inspired, delicious, and healthy recipes to whip up for my lovelies. My children are older, but I feel it’s important to educate them on the benefits of eating a raw food based diet. What better way to do this than to show them how amazingly delicious raw food can be!


    10. By Lendie on Feb 4, 2012

      You have been one of my “likes” on Facebook for quite some time… :)


    11. By Juli Mitschke on Feb 4, 2012

      Tera you are the most inspiring woman I can think of. I love reading your blogs. They are always so full of life and really make a person feel so good and warm and that they can conquer anything!

      I have slowly began to bring more and more raw into my diet especially now being pregnant. If I dont get my green smoothie in for a day I really feel sluggish and my tummy get’s upset. I think babe is mad when he/she doesn’t get those YUMMY nutrients :)

      I want to be able to provide my first child with the BEST nutrients and most healthy lifestyle I possibly can- it is my mission. Children are the future and I would feel I have failed if I were to let my child grow up in an unhealthy lifestyle!

      I am someone who is always in the kitchen trying out new things. My husband always asks for something I have already made and is dissapointed but also excited when I say no because I have something new to try! Rarely does a meal get made more then twice a month that is the same lol! I love variety, trying new things and experimenting so this would just be a terrific journey I can take with my little munchkin when it is born!

      Also I have “liked” your facebook page and have been following for a year now! I LOVE listening to your WISH summit and am so excited for this year’s especially to hear Alice Bracegirdle another inspiring woman !

      THanks so much for your consideration

      Helloooo!! I have 3 little monkeys, aged 5, 2 and 2, and they loooove to monkey around in the kitchen. They always eat better when they have a hand preparing it, and not needing to worry aobut little fingers being burned on the stove would be such a bonus! :) And I liked it on FB! :) Cheers!


    13. By Lana on Feb 4, 2012

      My husband is now onboard with my new healthy lifestyle, in the last two months he has dropped 15 lbs, so now our only challenge is our 6 yr old daughter. I think having her own recipes book may inspire her to eat healthy. Maybe she can make us a meal or two :)


    14. By Dotty Hagmier on Feb 4, 2012

      Hi, I would love to talk with you about partnering with my organization, Moms in Charge to work together to get this message out of your amazing recipes and co-promote our efforts to spread the word of authentic health and empowering our kids to make THEIR OWN HEALTHY CHOICES!


    15. By Elysha on Feb 4, 2012

      I would LOVE this uncook book. I have been looking for more ways to introduce raw to my children and husband. :)


    16. By Elysha on Feb 4, 2012

      I have already “liked” Tera… and I still do. :) :)


    17. By Debbie Palmer on Feb 4, 2012

      “liked your FB page a long time ago!” Would love to win this for the monkeys in my family! :)


    18. By Maria on Feb 4, 2012

      I liked Tera’s Facebook page


    19. By Maria on Feb 4, 2012

      I have a 2.5 year old that loves cooking, experimenting and eating in the kitchen. I am always looking for good foods, good ideas and good habits for us regarding food.


    20. By Farrah on Feb 4, 2012

      My little one would love this! It has so much to teach!


    21. By Ashley on Feb 4, 2012

      I’d love to win this because I’m in need of healthy food ideas for my children, Jack and Jane. Thank you!


    22. By Kathleen on Feb 4, 2012

      I would love to share these recipes with my granddaughter. When she’s here she always wants to read “Junk Food Dude” and asks me about whether a food is healthy. She also loves to cook with me so this book would be perfect.


    23. By Anna Hess on Feb 4, 2012

      I love making healthy foods for my girls, ages 8, 7 & 20 months, and they always eat the healthy stuff-IF they can help make it. This book looks like the perfect tool!


    24. By Mimi on Feb 4, 2012

      Would love this for my munchkin! Fingers crossed :)


    25. By Erin on Feb 4, 2012

      NEED for my son and when friends come over! It would get a lot of use!


    26. By Erin on Feb 4, 2012

      I like you on FB!


    27. By Dawn on Feb 4, 2012

      I already like Tera Warner’s page on FB.
      With 3 fussy eating teenagers & all gluten free this book would be ideal to take away their fear of uncooking in the kitchen, cooking or uncooking for kids should be fun & easy, & this book looks just that :) Dawn


    28. By Sarah R on Feb 4, 2012

      I “liked” Tera’s page a long time ago. I would love to win this book because my 4 year old has been getting too interested in more junky food and less yummy food since starting preschool this year.


    29. By Maureen marcotte on Feb 4, 2012

      I liked your page on Facebook and my little grand niece Hopes birthday party is next Saturday! She loves to prepare food with Mommy! This non cook book would be perfect. Thank you for looking out for the next generation!


    30. By Shari Humphrey on Feb 4, 2012

      This looks like a great book! My youngest daughters are just starting to enjoy preparing food and they’d like to be able to do more on their own. They’re always looking for fun, healthy recipes. I knew there was a reason I liked you on Facebook!
