This cold raw vegan “pasta” dish is made from sweet potato spirals and bell peppers and topped with a creamy cashew curry sauce. It contains 400% of your daily Vitamin C intake and nearly 14 grams of protein.
Because eating plant-based isn’t hard enough to get used to, I decided I would take a few days this week and try to follow a raw food diet. My goal was to detox after I ate too much dairy for the first time in three months. While this is not something I will do every day, I did learn that there are some differences between a raw food diet and raw veganism.
This savory mojito sauce is the perfect way to add a touch of dairy-free goodness to any dish. Whether you eat meat or plants, this smooth, creamy green goddess sauce is the guilt-free topping you are looking for. Despite the name, this sauce actually contains no alcohol.
It’s official. With Memorial Day weekend right around the corner, it is finally barbeque season. For those of us on perpetual diets (or just health-conscious), Memorial Day weekend can be the start of a downward spiral. We break out our fatty, sauce-drenched meats, mayo-based sides and greasy chips in the name of summer. Those of us on a plant-based diet can be just as guilty. Soaking jack fruit in a vegan-friendly sauce and slapping it on a burger bun might have less saturated fat than pulled pork, but it definitely isn’t low in carbs. 🙂 Even junk food classics like Frito’s and Oreo’s make the “accidentally vegan” list.
