I don’t eat a 100% raw diet, nor do I have the desire to do that anytime soon. I have found that I am much happier overall when I include a small amount of healthy cooked food…not necessarily every day, but whenever I feel like it. My cooked food is always vegan…with the exception of eggs and raw goat cheese.
This is my favorite cooked meal lately…
- Red quinoa (same as white quinoa but prettier!)
- Balsamic portabella mushrooms (sliced and cooked in my balsamic dressing until soft)
- Steamed kale (prepared with garlic, red wine vinegar, sea salt, and olive oil)
- Sweet potatoes (I usually roast these for added crunch and sweetness, but tonight I steamed/boiled them)
Portabellas are a great substitute if you’re missing a “meaty” texture. They are super hearty and can be used as a topper like I have them above, on sandwiches, or on salads. The possibilities are limitless! 🙂
