Florida Vacation Guide to Raw Food in Miami
The raw food diet originally attracted vegans, but green and healthy lifestyles are growing in popularity, even while traveling. So if you’re looking for a puritanical vacation, make sure you stop into Lifefood Gourmet when you’re in Miami.
Raw Food Dining
Raw foodism is based on the principle that when plants are cooked above 47° C, they lose nutrients and digestive enzymes. The strictest of raw food diets use only fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts that are organic and unprocessed. Raw foodists live by the conviction that it’s better for animals, the planet and their own bodies, however, the regime of food preparation is labour intensive and therefore expensive. Raw food chefs resort to measures such as sprouting, dehydrating and fermenting to get the same textures and richness from creamy dairy ingredients or cooking with heat.
Check out Lifefood Gourmet in The Roads. Chef John Schott’s menu items at this vegan restaurant are creative and tasty, and as far as raw food menus go, reasonably priced.
Have to try
Make sure you order the Lifefood Lasagna. It’s the highest priced item on the menu but with pumpkin pesto cheese and macadamia pine nut alfredo sauce, you can understand the amount of work in creating this. From smoothies and shakes to pizza and salads, you’re sure to find something on the menu to satisfy your hunger.
Do you count calories and carbs, or how many “live” enzymes your food has?
