HERE IS A LITTLE HELP UNDERSTANDING RAW VEGAN FOOD....
Raw Vegan foods, also known as Living Foods, are simply fresh fruits, nuts and vegetables. Raw living foods are packed with enzymes, which are responsible for every metabolic action in the body. It's widely held that heating foods above 118 degrees destroys enzymes. So we serve no cooked , canned or processed foods. We are a Vegan Potluck as well, so we serve no dairy, eggs, sugar or meat. Also we are an alcohol free space. The raw food diet is one of abundance. There are over 150 foods to choose from. We prepare and eat whole and unprocessed fruits, vegtables, sprouted or soaked legumes, nuts, seeds and sea vegetables. There are many exciting recipes, books and websites with tasty recipes to help guide us, and help with our confidence as we explore together this fresh and delicious way to eat and live. At our ABQ Raw Potlucks we bring dishes that are composed of fresh organic ingredients, or of foods prepared in the dehydrator at a temperature not above 118 degrees. Our Potlucks are an informal way to come together, meet friends, enjoy great foods and each other. Come join us! Everyone Welcome! Diet for Living Center-Organizers
