Eating Raw by jamieivey | Jul 17, 2009 | My Story | 6 comments Aaron and I became vegetarians about a year ago. 6 Comments blueraindrop on July 18, 2009 at 12:20 am some years back i used to have a book called the uncook book that i used to use a lot back in the late 90’s. eventually i discovered though that most of the things i liked the best were just the simplest, obvious things. different mixes of fruits… etc. crystin on July 18, 2009 at 1:02 pm well we did a fast like that with our church and it was really great…however, Ben says he can’t live w/o meat so we probably won’t become vegetarians anytime soon. we did make a great hummus (chickpeas, tahini paste, lemon juice, garlic cloves, olive oil, pepper, salt, etc)….however, I’m wondering now- the chickpeas can’t possibly be “raw” b/c they have to cook to become soft…but in raw diets you eat legumes, correct? Otherwise where would your the majority of your protein and fiber come from?… Abby on July 19, 2009 at 6:50 am zucchini hummus sounds yummy! it all sounds yummy, really. I don’t have a favorite raw food recipe off of the top of my head, but here is a great raw blog: http://happyfoody.com/ in the summer, i do like to make a salad of cucumbers, tomatoes, vinegar, water, & sugar. is it considered raw b/c it’s marinated? jen on July 19, 2009 at 6:37 pm http://www.choosingraw.com/ just came across this the other day while looking through the list of food blogs i follow. might be good but haven’t really looked into much. shawnah on July 21, 2009 at 7:05 am What is tahini? Katie on July 22, 2009 at 10:18 am This Mediterranean Kale sounds good, i will have to try it! I have almost completely cut meat out of my diet over the last couple of months and am trying to eat raw as much as possible. There are some raw alternatives that just sound awful to me, you know?? My favorite thing now is having “Green Monsters” for breakfast. I blend spinach, almond milk, flax seeds and fruit in the blender. I have done mango and a few other options but my favorite is strawberry banana. So good! And it gives me so much energy! Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
