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

Hey everyone - i need some advice!

I was ALL raw for about a month - amazing and loving every minute~! Lost weight and looked lean and fit!

Went away for a week where i ate loads of shit-i am and always will be Vegan but i ate lots of crap.... On coming home i am eating raw high carb for breakfast and lunch - snacking only on water and later a couple of dates but in the evenings even after a massive bowl of fruit and a green salad i am CRAVING cooked foods.....

Any help? I am at about 2000 to 2300 cals a day... i was eating a little less than this before when i was loving 100% raw.

Nice vid - balanced.

My (limited) understanding was that white rice is easier to digest than brown, but brown has more of the minerals. In Sri Lanka and parts of India they par-boil unrefined rice and the minerals  soak into the white kernel giving it a feint brown or reddish colour. Then they polish it.  This "boiled" rice is easy to digest like white rice but has more minerals like brown rice. I can buy it in my local Sri Lankan / south Indian shops in S.E. London.

It's a scam how the media points out the chemicals in heated carbohydrates, without pointing out the more so harmful chemicals in animal products. It's important to remember that the societies who eat the most carbohydrates are the healthiest.

Like it Jon :-)

I look and feel miles more well when I eat LFRV, digestion is also optimal. When I eat cooked food, my lungs wheeze and it is mucus producing. 

Comment by Kenichisan on November 6, 2012 at 5:44am

Why is it better for you re health to eat LFRV?

Comment by Linda K on November 6, 2012 at 5:37am

Alternatively, you can take bananas out with you in a large sandwich box. 

Comment by Linda K on November 6, 2012 at 5:36am

I take stainless steel beakers of smoothies everywhere I go in a flask bag. If you want to eat cooked starches, steamed squash with steamed kale or broccoli is really tasty, or plain, sliced, steamed potatoes. Also, Schwarz Season-All Herb and Spice Shake makes cooked starches tasty and even ketchup. I was having soya yoghurt for dessert, so it was all high carb, low fat, but personally I find 100% LFRV much better for my health. I hope this helps.

I have found that baked potatoes are the best for not desiring to put salt or oil on them. I think it has to do with the flavor of the potato skins when they are baked. My two cooked foods now are baked potato and air popped popcorn. Until I go to 100% raw which I intend to do! These are my two backup foods that I usually only have in the evenings when I begin to get cravings most often.
I think potatoes in general are better on the body than all grains, even rice.

Comment by Kenichisan on November 6, 2012 at 5:27am

I eat sometimes natural rice from italy, if its cooked long enough, its tasteful without fat.

Or you eat Japanese white sushi rice or italian round rice, its very tasteful without anything, no oil, no salt, no spices
