Sometimes, I catch on really late. For example, I feel that I'm the last person to realize that there are a lot of unexpected produce items that you can eat raw! Not necessarily marinated, dehydrated, sprouted, or anything else, just straight up raw!
Fresh summer corn, straight off the cob? Yes.
Raw beets? Yes. I've graduated from shredding them into salads to just eating them as veggie sticks.
Sweet potatoes? Yes! (sweet potatoes are not actually potatoes, as you might know)
collard greens? yes- they make awesome wraps! I only started cooking collard greens 5 years ago- before then, I had the image that they had to be cooked for hours and hours. Hey, we can all make mistakes.
Here are some other things that I've been delighted to eat without cooking:
oats (as in muesli)
What are some of your favorite unusual or unexpected raw foods? Let me know- I'd love to try them if I haven't yet!
