Raw Food with the OMMH! (5)

It's expected that on the path of raw veganism,
there may be some hurdles and bumpy rides.

At first, one may complain the limited food variety,
problem eating out/socialising, temptation by junk food etc...

To ensure a smoother path towards raw veganism,
a holistic approach embracing aspects of
body, mind and soul improvement
may be necessary to cushion those distress mentioned above.

For example,
MIND:    Meditation to tame the temptation from junk food
SOUL:    Prayers to fortify the faith constantly challenged by unfounded negative remarks
BODY:   Qigong to facilitate thorough oxygen/nutrients distribution to avoid Yin-yang imbalance

For some people, they may not want to go totally raw.
That is equally good -- at least raw food is taken everyday.

However, for partial raw foodist,
if possible, try to keep raw and cooked meals separate.
-- our gut will get confused & deprived when both cooked and raw food are mixed.

Lastly, I would like to share one of my favourite raw recipes
which guarantees vitality and clarity to sustain your day :)

Sproutie Smoothie
(serves 2-4)

Organic Ingredients:
- 1/2 mango or 1/2 dragon fruit or 1 big banana
- 1/2-1 cup of filtered water (chilled)
- 10pcs of soaked almond
- 2 heap spoonful of sprouted lentils, chickpea, mung bean or combination
- optional: 2g of spirulina (pills or powder)
- optional: 2 pcs of pitted medjool dates

- blend all ingrdients in a super blender (e.g. Vitamix / Blendtec) until smooth
  [add chilled water to adjust the consistency needed]
- serve immediately

This is a complete raw meal exploded with
enzymes, proteins, vitamins, minerals, good omega, fibre, complex carb, phytonutrients..
ie everything!

Enjoy =P

  1. I always cooked the sprouted chickpea n lentils, can we eat it raw? Issit suitable for kids?

  2. Hi Guazi,

    For sprouted chickpea and sprouted lentils specifically, they can be eaten raw raw, YES :D
    They are tasty too =_)

    Kids can take them too!!

    Well regards,
    Kee Yew

  3. Thanks ! But the sprouted lentils had such sour taste, not sure how to take it raw leh, maybe as u suggested, blend into smoothie then tastebwill be covered hor.

  4. Dear Guazi,

    Freshly sprouted lentils should taste slightly minty and fragrant.

    Did you follow the Simple Sprouting Protocol?

    Also, a special emphasis that filtered water/mineral must be used for sprouting. Strictly no tap water :P

    Happy experimenting,
    Kee Yew
