Raw food I ate

May 3, 2010

Here’s some things I’ve eaten lately as a raw food vegan

I went to a raw food potluck recently and here’s a photo of what I ate. It was great and I had mango & lettuce salad, asparagus, avocado, butternut squash salad, grapes, strawberries, apples, cucumbers, kale & tomato salad, broccoli, carrots, green beans, a pumpkin seed cracker with nut pate, and a salsa. Very tasty, colorful and nutritious.
Oh and for dessert I had a slice of raw cinnamon & apple pie. =)
Also I had recently… Strawberries and romaine salad with sunflower sprouts, sunflower seed crackers and a tomato basil dressing.
and hummus pizza on onion bread with sprouts, bell peppers and tomatoes. also cauliflower & dill salad and cucumbers.

and a Butternut squash salad with raw stirfry veggies.

also had raw chocolate (cacao) drops with almonds and coconut. And organic fruit (peaches, papaya, mango, banana, cantaloupe, etc.)

Standard American Diet (SAD)

April 30, 2010

Each year, the typical American on the standard american diet (SAD) consumes 600 cans (or 56 gallons) of soda annually, 150 hamburgers, 200 orders of french-fries, and 180 pounds of meat. And they purchase, on average, 125 take-out meals each year. What is more disturbing is that 90% of foods Americans purchase every year are processed foods lacking in essential vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants; in 1940, this statistic was only 10%. The number of people eating five servings of fruits and vegetables declined in the last 18 years from 42% to 26%.

And they consume about 140 pounds of sugar each year. That’s the sugar equivalent of 3,628 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups in the next 12 months. That’s just crazy. People should switch to raw foods and they’d be alot healthier. Of course the advertisers don’t want you to do that.

Remember: “Eat to live not live to eat.” What’s really the purpose of food? To provide your body with the nutrients it needs.
