Degrees of Vegetarianism
Not all people on raw diets are vegans, but many choose to abstain from any animal products. A raw food diet has no foods that are cooked above a certain temperature, and also excludes all pre-processed foods. A raw vegan diet is very low in fat and calories and is very high in fiber, so many people this diet turn to juicing at home. Juicing allows them to consume food that is densely nutritious and uncooked, and helps them get enough calories for the day. Many raw vegans consider the use of dehydrators to be an acceptable means of preparing foods.
Becoming a raw vegan is a big commitment. It takes careful planning to make sure that there's enough fat, protein and calories in your food each day.Next Prev Slide 6 / 7
