fresh, live, raw. loving it.

hey everyone.

i'm new to this raw world, starting off on a trial run of the raw diet for a month.. maybe longer! currently sticking to a 75-80% raw diet, and depending on that transition from the SAD, will potentially increase the raw portion.

quick question: (forgive me if this has been discussed already)

what are your thoughts on tofu? clearly, as a processed/fermented product of edamame, it is not a raw food. i was just wondering if, for those of you who are not 100% raw, you find it to be a good source of protein. or do you prefer to go with raw fish/edamame/nuts etc (based and dependent on your level of veganism)? just opening up a general inquiry about tofu. any thoughts would be appreciated.


stay fresh.

    Hey, tofu is fine, infact it has many health benefits such as protecting against various cancers, bone health, balancing hormones and so on. This is largely due to the phyto-estrogens contained in tofu/soya:).

    Also rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, omega-3.


  • I don't eat tofu. It's not fermented, just FYI. It's also high in fat and should be a side dish, if anything.

  • Instead of processed soy, why not eat raw soy / edamame?

    Miso is also good if your looking fermented soya product. It is good for replacing the good bacteria and has many other health benefits also.
