Raw vegan lunch: salad with vegetables, no dressing



– 1 avocado

– 1 or 2 tomatoes

– 1 (red!) pepper

– celery (amount as desired)

First, all the vegetables (which are botanically fruits) must be ripe: pepper has to be red and a bit wrinkled, avocado has to be soft (about as soft as a peach when ripe, so that it gives a bit when pressed) and tomatoes have to be fully red and soft as well. If anything is too soft, there’s a chance that it might be overripe. But it’s simple – if it tastes good, than it’s good.vegetables


Wash the salad, peel the avocado, cut the vegetables into desired size pieces – or don’t cut anything at all and slice through while eating. Ready!

I cannot begin to tell you how delicious this meal is. Just a note – only eat fresh (raw) food before this meal. Otherwise the body won’t benefit from the nutrients properly, because this meal goes through the stomach quite fast – it needs about 30 to 45 minutes (mostly because of avocado, which contains, if high quality, up to 15 % of fat. All the other listed vegetables use less time). If heat processed food has been ingested prior to a raw meal, it just waits on top of other food, where it rots as it doesn’t go through the colon in the right time (i.e. fast enough). In such case, there can be stomach ache and/or cramps. I am familiar with this by theory and practice…
