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!

Can you eat rolled oats as a LFV, or will it make you fat? I have been wanting more oatmeal, but I am not sure if you are allowed oats on this diet. Also I wanted to make oatmeal banana cookiesContinue

Janelle, I agree with Tom! I'm a university student and for the past few weeks I have been having a big banana smoothie in the morning and then bringing 15 dates and some celery with me to school (this is a meal over 1000 calories!). They're so compact and handy! I highly recommend them :)

Janelle, are you in the Caribbean? I have an image of you surrounded by juicy fruit ... obviously I'm wrong?! :)  Dates are really handy, if you like them ...

Comment by Janelle Z on September 24, 2012 at 11:36pm

i wish i could be totally raw and have been for a few months now. but i started uni a few weeks ago and carrying hands of bananas to school every day (i live an hour away) to last the 12 hours i'm there got old really fast... so i've just been steaming root veggies like sweet potato and keeping it in my bag. anyone have any suggestions of any other things a broke uni student can shove in her school bag? cooked or raw vegan, doesn't matter. i'm so desperate at this point...

I eat quinoa as a back-up. How can I make it taste good? I tend to put too much tahini/salt/miso/tamari on it.

Comment by Tom on September 23, 2012 at 5:49am

I was taught long ago to throw out the water when I cook potatoes.  When I made soups like these I used fresh water with the cooked potatoes.  I've no idea what the reasoning is.

Ever tried cassava (manjoca)?  Stacks of carb calories.  Taste good, too IMO.

Hey Rawkin Fruit! I'm a Midwesterner too! I've only been eating starchys lately when I crave them (usually at night after my show!), and something warm is definitely nice as it's gets cooler. Personally, I like durianrider's philosophy of filling up on the carb calories: fruit being the best, but you can fill up on other carbs, too (my other favs being grains, vegetables and legumes)! If you stay 80/10/10 you're going to stay lean no matter what. Exercise and you'll be golden. MMMM CARBS ARE THE BEST. <3

I love your video Axxes "sleep water sugar water play play play" great mantra!

Comment by Axxess on September 1, 2012 at 4:24am

Good job Ashlee!!! I've been doing the same thing lately. It's amazing how much a difference it makes just taking out the salt. Crazy :) I've been replacing it with ripe tomatoes with lime added to my potatoes.

Good for you Healthy Ashlee!
