A Raw Deal: Living Greens

At Live Gourmet we like to keep up with the latest recipes and health food trends.  We specialize in growing living leafy greens and have found ways to explore the recent buzz over the term “raw food”.  This week we give you the raw deal on having a plant based diet with plenty of options for you!
Cooking? It’s so last season
This diet is all the rage in Hollywood but what is it exactly?  Raw Foodism or Rawism is the practice of eating foods that are uncooked, unprocessed, seasonal, organic, local and fresh!

 Got Leafy Greens? 

Leafy Greens are the most ideal vegetable that people can eat.  They are low in calories and packed with vitamins and minerals.  Below is a list to help you get started on your raw foods diet.

  • Butter Lettuce – This variety of loose leaf head lettuce has a delicate mild to sweet flavor with a firm crisp texture.
  • Cos or Romaine – It has a long, oval head of tightly packed crisp leaves.
  • Iceberg – A pale, round, tightly packed lettuce which has crisp leaves with a refreshing flavor. 
  • 3 In 1 Lettuce – A mixed salad of Lollo Rossa, Lollo Bionda, and Red Oak Leaf grown together.

Live Gourmet is locally grown, pesticide free and still alive – making it a perfect choice of produce for your raw food plan.  We sell all of our products with the roots attached so you and your family are buying the freshest lettuce and leafy greens available!
