Belleme. I learned something I did not know (bonus!), and also found out that the way I have been habitually eating since becoming a vegan is pretty healthy. Especially the past two years when I started eating more Japanese food: Miso, Tamari, Green Tea, Tofu and Soy milk. Add to that brown rice, Matcha powder and Edamame and my diet looks pretty healthy during the wintertime which is when I favour this kind of food. Give myself a huge pat on the back!
I admit I haven’t been paying too much attention to all the hype about the “superfood”. It is only curiosity that got me to look at this book, and I found out something kind of shocking. I eat a lot of superfood… without even trying to. Phew! I guess. What I did find shocking is how lots of people don’t eat the same way. There was lots of coaxing in this book, suggestions for how someone could incorporate a superfood or two into their diet, and how it would eventually become a habit. Now that is scary!
Another shocking read… shocking because of some of the things that they considered to be healthy.
Local author! So local I have even been to the restaurant Gorilla Food, just located down the street from my favourite used books store in downtown Vancouver. I can testify that the truffles are decadently delicious. Raw foods is a new interest for me. I have been reading whatever I can find for the past two years, looking for something that will promote better health for myself, and the raw food movement seems to be it (when it’s warm enough!). I have been waiting for our garden to grow some of the ingredients I need to test this book out, so I might get back to you later with some food porn…yum.
Any way you shake it, a vegan raw food diet is a really primo one, full of variety, health and joy because of the benefits to and for the planet and our bodies, I will leave you with a little ‘funny‘, which really cracked me up when I first saw it because this particular question has been asked of me many times over during my life as a herbivore…
