I recently read a blog where someone said they can't go raw because raw vegans eat mostly fruit and she can't handle a high carb diet. Here's the thing - not all raw vegans are fruitarians. Some might be better described as sproutarians. Personally, my body doesn't seem to do that well on a high fruit and nut diet either - but leafy greens and sprouts are wonderful for me. Here's a list of low glycemic veggies for my future reference.
While I'm posting links, here's a recipe for a smoothie I'm dying to try. It's a dessert smoothie and trust me, you can definitely gain weight on a raw vegan diet, but who can resist butterscotch?
Update: We tried the smoothie, but replacing the young coconut for macadamia nuts because one of the kids is allergic. It was pretty good but I didn't quite get the butterscotch flavor. Maybe without the coconut it needs one more date. I would definitely make it again.
