What Do Raw Food Vegans Eat?

Discovering the world of the raw food vegan diet has been fun! (What does it mean that I’m a raw food vegan? Well, to me it means as much raw food as I can, vegan when I can’t. Add a dash of flexibility for those dinner dates and unavoidable cheese-tastic moments, and you’ve got a diet that you can keep up with for a long time.) I’ve been experimenting with different recipes and have figured out that you can eat a really delicious variety of foods that are mostly (if not completely) raw or vegan!

By the way, I’ve learned that a spiralizer is a MUST have. You just can’t sustain this lifestyle without the proper tools. I got this one from Amazon and I LOVE it. It’s easy to operate, easy to clean, and saves so much time and effort.

Raw food spiralizer

This amazing spiralizer chops carrots and makes squash, beets, and zucchini into spaghetti.

So what do I eat? Rabbit food? Not exactly…

  • Homemade almond butter (just almonds and a food processor – SIMPLE!)
  • Thai almond butter sauce (can be used with so many recipes)
  • Sweet potato fries
  • Normal potato fries
  • Guacamole
  • Thai lettuce wraps (so much more filling & satisfying than it sounds)
  • Beet, carrot, mixed green salad
  • Walnut pesto (I use just a little bit of Parmesan cheese)
  • Smoothies (yum – breakfast every day!)
  • Date and pecan energy balls (easy to make, and so tasty)
  • Carrot sticks (another easy snack with lots of crunch – haha, literal rabbit food! 😛 )

I want to learn to make a hearty vegan stew (maybe with potato chunks, lentils or beans, squash, curry powder, and so on) to eat for dinner so that I sleep well with a full warm belly. I also want to get my hands on a gazpacho recipe! Soup in a cup is basically the best idea since sliced bread.

My body is still adjusting. I get cravings for grilled cheese sandwiches or omelettes. But I distract myself or eat some date and pecan energy balls to tide myself over to the next meal. My body feels great, and I keep reminding myself how much more energy I have now 🙂

Yours,

Aruna
