Some guidelines

Welcome! Feel free to talk about cooked VEGAN food here.  We suggest you stick to discussing high carb cooked vegan foods like potatoes, root vegetables, rice with minimal dressing if any as they are the most healthful cooked food choices. Below is a transition diet I 'created' for those of you coming from a SAD lifestyle and wanting to make the switch to a high carb RAW vegan lifestyle.

Here are some guidelines that we support, put together by the super helpful PK

  • Cooking is for emergencies only such as financial reasons and or there is no ripe fruit available, then low fat cooked starches may be an acceptable back up plan.
  • It's always healthier to steam than any other cooked method.
  • Corn and Root vegetables digest better than grains like rice.
  • Always choose foods that are vegan and promote compassion towards our fellow earthlings. We do not support the discussion of non-vegan cooked foods in this group or on the 30BaD forum.
  • Avoid dairy products for compassionate and health reasons:  http://www.notmilk.com/
  • Cooking denatures food.  Try to plan for at least 75% of the diet to be raw fruits and leafy greens.
  • Cooked foods should still be low fat for weight control and cardiovascular health and optimum energy.
  • Continue to focus on high carb high calorie sources and the more nutrient dense, the better.
  • Fruits do not mix well with cooked foods and or grains.  An idea is to eat fruit meals during the day, and perhaps end the day with a big salad and bowl of steamed rice.
  • Cooking should be simple, with as little processing and as few ingredients as possible, and foods should resemble their original states such as steamed broccoli verses cookies.
  • This is not a license to kill foods with salt and spices or to eat McDeaths french fries.  A bowl of steamed rice is fine, hold the oil, salt, and spices.
  • Continue to follow other guidelines such as avoiding booze, tea, coffee, soda, drugs, etc.  Read more here: http://www.rawfoodexplained.com/science.html
  • Cooking is for emergencies only, and not for a transition tool.  We still recommend going 100% low fat raw fruit and leafy green for optimum digestion and health results.  As we have said before, one cannot ride two horses (or bikes;D) with the same bum.  For best results and to get over addictions, just do it 100% if and when possible.
  • While high carb cooked vegan fare makes for the best backup plan when we're not able to find delicious raw fruits and vegetables, the use of toxic ingredients defeats the benefits of this fallback position. Therefor, in all cooked-food discussions, we expect members to abide by our list of unsupported ingredients. If you're going to eat cooked vegan food, keep it simple: bare cooked potatoes or rice, steamed veggies and such.
  • Whenever possible, choose ripe fruits and leafy greens.  Primates and humans cannot manufacture vitamin C, and must consume it in fruit and greens, or they may develop sub-clinical symptoms of scurvy which could include things like skin ulcerations and mouth infections.  Grains and some beans do not have vitamin C, and some beans and potatoes that do have minimal amounts, may have the vitamin C rendered useless via cooking.
  • Continue to consider that some of the cheaper so called starch foods have little or no vitamin C, and are usually high in protein.  These foods may cause an acid condition in the body that can contribute long term to arthritis, osteoporosis, tooth decay, kidney problems and kidney stones and cancer.  Grains can also cause indigestion, Crohn's disease, irritable bowel syndrome, celiac disease, colitis, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, gas, and indigestion.
  • Again, it is recommended that as soon as circumstances allow, that one should resume eating a low fat raw fruit and tender leafy green based diet.  For some folks, that may be as easy as downgrading the house and car payment.
  • To save a little money now and go the starch route, only to get sick and have to pay for doctors and medications later on is a decision one will have to ask themselves if it is worth the risk involved.

BTW, I have known millionaires and people making over 100K a year who cannot afford fruit because they are maxed out financially on the McMansions they have bought and the beamers and benzes they drive.

 

Thanks folks!

Hello fellow vegans!

Love that you are following this lifestyle.

I'm currently on tour promoting veganism and animal rights with 10 Billion Lives and blogging about my experience on NY Nomads.

Being on the road can be challenging as our storage space is very limited in our van.

However, we do have a blender and microwave.

Most days, while I campaign on campuses, I eat bananas, dates, apples, and other fruit. By 2p, I am starving and wishing I could eat a veggie burger or some of the other food we mention to college students looking to transition into veganism.

For someone that is very active - running 6-10 miles in the morning and then spending 8a-4p active walking around campus and setting up our kiosks - to stay full and happy during the day.  Anything you all recommend I can prepare and eat?  Fruit alone has not been terribly fulfilling when I am so active.

If you live in the northern hemisphere and you're starting to worry about what to eat in the winter, add in some sweet potatoes! They're so tasty, are generally available through the year, and play well with all sorts of greens and other veggies. Plus they're pretty easy to prepare - they're great steamed and if you slice them thin enough they're ready in no time at all!

I have severe ADHD and due to issues with xenobiotic metabolism fruit is a no-go for me, but russet potato and iceberg lettuce are fine. I have been doing my version of vegan mashed potato meals and feel great! I don't eat the potato skin (don't want to consume saponins and whatnot) and simply re-add the roughly 25% of water that is lost during baking, mash and serve. I am currently adding sea salt, but may choose to add less as time passes.

Fully Raw or Raw till 4? Were do we stand ? We get alot of questions asking for our opinion on the raw til 4 diet vs the fully raw 80/10/10 diet. People ask us what we eat what we do and what we think is the best. In this video we talk about what we think, what we eat and what is important for us. We give you some tips on how you can eat and get the best out of you food. Hope you will enjoy this video.
