Vegan MoFo #7 - Live for Live: The Joy of Raw Foods Part 1

That's Live ("L-ih-ve") for Live ("L-eye-ve").

Cooking is a blast. So much fun. Mixing, measuring, creating. Beginning a relationship with your food. Pots and pans and burners. Fire. Warmth. Mmm, there's something about the process of making your food that actually makes it taste better, you know what I mean?

BUT. That's not to say that cooked food is the only way to go. Not by a long shot, mister and misses. Whole plant foods in their raw food are delicious. How much more simple and flavorful can you get than a piece of fruit or vegetable. Their original essence. Mmm, there's something about consuming a food in its natural form that actually makes it taste better, you know what I mean? (And that's not even to mention the incredibly high nutrient quality of live food.)

Whoa, I think I just love food. We can all agree that whether cooked or raw, there are tons of incredibly delicious plant-based options for you always and forever.

Last post was a yummy, cooked pre-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving meal. Here's a raw one to satisfy that side of things. And it comes from one of my favorite restaurants, Cafe Gratitude.

I AM HAPPY: Mediterranean wrap with live falafels, zucchini cilantro hummus, spinach, red onion, tomato, cucumber, red chili pepper sauce and garlic tahini dressing on live sun-dried tomato bread

A colorful salad of mixed greens and other veggies with a flavorful dressing + a raw wrap chock full of goodies.  The meal is very tasty, very light, very fulfilling.  Live food, indeed, makes you feel alive.  There are so many fun raw/live options to our cooked favorites.  Check it out if you haven't.  Give yourSelf the gift of life in food.

I just wanted to share Part 1 with you for now.  Part 2 involves DESSERTS.  So be ready - I'm gonna ask you to make a decision.  Start thinking with your taste buds.

All the best and yummiest to you.
