LG-
To answer your question, all of the raw foodists I know are vegan (no animal products of any kind), and they do not heat their food. There are many ways to prepare raw food that make the situation workable that obviously do not include heating the foods past a certain temperature.

I think I've covered raw foodism to some degree in the past on this team forum, however I don't remember where I put the information. emoticon

If you're interested in being more than 80% raw, you'll need to look into the particular minerals and vitamins you'll need to supplement with. The regular vegan diet provides these (with the exception of B12, which can be obtained from some nutritional yeast, fortified sources, or supplements), however the raw diet cuts out foods that must be cooked in order to eat them, and therefore cuts out the nutrients you would be getting from those foods.

I'm always encouraging people to try new things and to explore their culinary and ethical preferences. If you're interested in a raw lifestyle, there will be a lot to learn. There are several raw cookbooks on the market, and I even heard of a raw restaurant in LA! Too bad one of the vegan restaurants near me just closed emoticon

Just like when you first became vegan and pretty much knew nothing, going raw I've heard is basically the same way. There's a period of "raw boot camp" so to speak, where you're learning the ins and outs of raw foodism.

I eat about 40% raw. I'd like to increase it to maybe 60%.

well I eat about 30 to 50 % raw and the rest cooked fruits and veggies. For the raw side of my meals I mostly eat big salads, fruits and green fruit smoothies.

When reading though some raw cookbooks I think some eat raw cheese and fish but I personally don't.

Hello

I know a fair amount about Veganism but not much about the details for Raw foodism and have a question.

Thank you :)
