#Rawvegan Theme 12th June 2014

Wowee!

The #rawvegan theme was amazing! (even if I do say so myself!) I am personally (or was before this!) a total novice when it comes to this subject and was looking forward to en educational hour. I was not let down! Only problem is… what do I make first!!

A raw vegan diet is defined as on that ‘Excludes all food and products of animal origin, as well as food cooked at a temperature above 48°C (118°F) (link) What can be eaten then? Well, all sorts reallyl! Nuts, grains, veggies, pulses. There more or less always seems to be a #raw way of doing it! There are many methods of preparing food as well Soaking, Sprouting, dehydrating, blending, fermenting, pickling and juicing are all acceptable methods.

We were lucky to have @RawVeganista educating us on the subject. They have consumed a Raw #plantbased diet for over 8 yrs so, its safe to say they know a thing or two! Just take a look at this. The contents of their #rawvegan fridge! YUM!

Sweet:

We were also treated to a LIVE cookery demo by @VeganChatRoom! They made some amazing looking (and sounding) ‘#Raw sesame fudge‘ Follow these Photos for progress! 1 2  3  and the finished article!  It looks amazing doesn’t it!?

Thank you to @dear_kitchen for this  totally yummy recipe for ‘Valentines day Mousse‘. i cant wait to go shopping to get he ingredients for that!

How about ‘Raw Mint Brownies‘ from the always amazing @Ephemerienne#Raw #strawberry #pie‘  or a ‘#raw keylime #pie‘ I shall definately be trying those out!

  1. wow, so many were shared! It was a busy hour huh! Thanks for all the shares of my recipes. I look forward to picking up some Kohl Rabi tips tonight 🙂 I pretty much just use it for salads, so it would be good to see what others do.
