The fun part about raw vegan foods especially the treats, is that you get to be creative and have fun! You get to experiment with your taste buds and see what they like, love, or hate. When you are in your vegan or raw kitchen, always remember one thing, experimenting with raw foods SHOULD be FUN!!:) It should never be a bore. Raw vegans use special kitchen appliances like a Vitamix, food processor, and a dehydrator for drying wet foods, etc.
Why raw? Well the reasons to being a raw vegan is because you want to receive all and the full benefits of your foods. When you cook your foods, what happens is that you kill the living enzymes and benefits it has to offer. For instance, take kale chips. You bake them to 400 degrees (which of course is not raw). You immediately kill all the enzymes and you are basically eating nothing and no good benefits are truly stored in the kale chips and your body. Now, imagine the kale chips raw and only dehydrated to 105-115 (dehydrating at temperatures between 105-115 is still considered raw, but passing over 115 is not raw). The kale chips are raw and all the living enzymes are still active in the chips. Now you are eating something that is filled with living enzymes and has benefits that you will receive when not cooked to death. Our bodies can’t digest cooked foods. Our bodies are our temples and we should take very cautious care of it. Our health is all we got. So make the best of incorporating more fruits and vegetables and less cooked foods.
Remember, you should always have fun in the raw kitchen. If you are creative, you can express your creativity and love threw raw foods. You won’t go wrong with that. Raw foods is the easiest way to “
cook” eat (well not literally cook-you know what I mean). Its an awesome feeling when you can express and experience these wonderful raw foods with your family and friends. Because when we love and feel good about the foods, we want to share that love and experience with someone else. Raw foods can bring people together as a community, etc. So spread the Rawsome love everyone:)
