Raw Vegan Holiday Recipes for Those Unconventional Guests

Raw Vegan Holiday Recipes for Those Unconventional Guests
BY JUDY POKRAS
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

What do you do when a relative or friend you’ve invited to your holiday table turns out to have a very different diet, one that excludes meat, fish, poultry, dairy, eggs, pasta, bread and anything else that has been heated or cooked? Indeed, the raw vegan lifestyle, as it is known, is not a common one, but it’s one that is good for health, as it places an emphasis on fresh vegetables, especially organically grown ones, and other nutritionally dense foods.

Authors like Joel Fuhrman, M.D., and Gabriel Cousens, M.D. have pointed out that a diet abundant in fresh vegetables and some fruits, nuts and seeds is good for our health. The New Jersey-based Fuhrman advocates what he calls a “nutritarian” way of eating, with a lot of fresh produce, whereas Cousens favors all raw vegan.
