Mainstream goes raw

Just back from having a meeting with a friend in town today and for the first time I managed to eat not only vegan, not only low-fat, but low-fat raw vegan. So what did I do? It wasn’t difficult. YOu look up the menu online, see what fresh fruits and vegetables they have you request that and tell them to remove the cooked lentils, hummus and fatty nuts and seeds, which ended up by me getting a really overpriced (13 USD!!!) salad of spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers and bell peppers. But hey, I eat out maybe 5 times/Year at most and it was all organic and now I know how to do it. Eating out raw at mainstream restaurants is not easy, I will not claim it is. But it can be done, especially if you put some planning into it.

  1. Gourmet restaurants are a better bet, Cause they carry a lot of “exotic” vegetables. but it can get costly.
    Here in India if you ask for raw salad you will only get cucumbers, carrots, beets(if lucky) capsicum and onions.
