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!

Thank you so much, I've been eating beans with rice and salad. Like today I had lentil soup with rice and salad. 

Comment by Petr Khavar on Wednesday
Courtnei: Beans are generally low in fat. They also have lots of carbs in them, the difference between beans and other high carb foods is in proteins. Beans have much more protein than rice etc. I think you can't go wrong eating them, just keep in mind they're not as high carb as veggies pasta rice potatoes, so if u wanna be high carb, eat lots of real high carb foods. Hope that you understand what I mean. Peace.

Hey everyone, I was wondering if i can have beans on raw till 4 i love beans and I've been eating them a lot with rice because its about all i can afford right now but i don't want to continue if it is high in fat. Ive been raw till 4 for 2 months now I'm kind of falling off because i can't buy as much stuff as i use to buy. Please help!!!

It's not cooked food that makes you fat. It's the fat that makes you fat. Keep the salt and fat low 80/10/10 style and you should be fine. Most importantly though -> Listen to your body!
Comment by monica st on July 18, 2014 at 1:10am

is cooked food makes u fat? I mean if u eat cooked HCLF vegan food lunch and dinner. Must I eat cooked food just for dinner (rawtill4) or even eliminate it if I want to lose weight?

Junessa if eating bread keeps you on this lifestyle then do it. leave the oil out and watch the salt.

Comment by Junessa M. Rendon on July 15, 2014 at 12:19am

Can I still eat bread? It's been a huge part of my life before I went vegan, and right now, I really want to incorporate it in my list of "food I can eat". I've occasionally been having sourdough bread, and I even made my own pita bread (just from flour, water, salt, and olive oil).

I have lots  of discussion about this on my youtube channel and I post about how I'm dealing with it.  Down ten # so far! :)

Yes keep at it and check your measurements.  I notice when the scale doesn't move, the measuring tape does!
