What is a raw vegan meal?

A raw vegan meal doesn’t include any foods made from animal or dairy products and only features food items that are either completely uncooked or cooked below certain temperatures. Most raw vegan chefs consider 118 degrees the maximum cooking temperature, but others won’t cook anything over 104 degrees.

FAQ

What can you eat on a raw vegan diet?

On a raw vegan diet, you can eat foods made from plants as long as the foods are raw or cooked below a certain temperature. Raw vegan meals often include fresh or dried fruits, vegetables and plants, nuts, seeds, and cold-pressed oils.

Are raw vegan recipes healthy?

The purpose of raw vegan food is to retain the nutrients naturally found in plants. Cooking can destroy some of these nutrients, but eating raw foods ensures that you get the maximum amount of vitamins and minerals. These dishes are also low in processed foods, so they can be a healthier alternative.

Do raw vegans drink coffee?

No, raw vegans do not drink coffee because coffee beans are roasted at high temperatures prior to brewing.  Since raw veganism is not rooted in ethics like veganism, less strict raw vegans may choose to eat a raw diet but make exceptions for beverages like coffee.

Do raw vegans eat potatoes and rice?

Raw vegans can’t eat potatoes since it is unsafe to consume raw potatoes. It’s possible to eat rice as a raw vegan if it’s sprouted. Only some varieties of rice can be sprouted such as brown rice and wild rice.
