LOL, I just look at the new posts on an average day. I hope ya'll don't mind when I post in the "over 50" group!!!
P.S. I didn't know corn could be eaten raw, either, until I went raw. I actually told a bunch of people about this, in excitement. Most were shocked. Some didn't believe me.
I'm very flattered to have 18 y/o women reading my posts! I see nothing wrong with it! I'm not complaining!
I didn't even pay attention to the "over 50" category, just saw raw corn. Oh well, I'm an honorary member now.
I adore raw corn but don't eat it really often. Will definately try the corn salad recipe, though. Favorite ways I eat it off the cob include mashing avocado all over it and eating or drizzling with flax oil and maybe spinkling a bit of nutrional yeast.

the best corn on the cob
A raw vegan chef gave me the most incredible recipe for corn on the cob. Here goes - strip the corn of the outside husks [I think that's what they're called] then sprinkle the corn with sea salt, then cut an avocado in half and rub avocado all over the corn (like you would butter), then season with whatever you want (italian, herb, whatever) then put on a plate and cover with a mesh screen or anything that lets the sunshine through and keeps the bugs off the food. Then sit outside in the sun for 2 to 3 hours, turning once. This is the juiciest most delicious corn I have ever eaten, especially if you get corn from a vegetable farm that was picked that day.
Ron, do you have Alissa's book? (In my opinion, ownership of the book ought to be a prerequisite for posting on the boards.)
If you "cook" food past 116% it is not raw. Raw means it is not cooked, and the enzymes are intact.

Chop up a little piece of onion, or some scallions
Chop up about 1/4 clove of garlic
Add some chopped up tomato if you like
Add some chopped up celery if you like
Add a piece of red, orange, yellow or green red pepper chopped up
Season with parsley
Add some sea salt (preferably Celtic sea salt - the chunky one)
Season also with a little bit of low sodium soy sauce (not raw), or Braggs liquid aminos (from the health food store)
Put a little olive oil on it.
Try it. It's absolutely yummy!
And remember... if it's cooked, it's not raw!
Plus you can look at google images for "raw corn recipes" and you will fiind some there.
annie--some people cant afford the book right now but still want to start into raw foods. this website is a great way for them to jump into raw anyway.
Okay, if you can eat corn raw, what about sugar beets? Maybe diced beets and sliced onion, with...with...with...aaahh?
Anybody know a way to eat raw beets?
Besides juice, you can use them in a simple salad with shredded carrots.
Or a more complicated one:
Veggie Bowl w/Sesame Seed Yogurt
Yogurt (4 cups):
1 cup un-hulled Sesame Seeds, grounded (optional soaked 10 hr)
1 Lemon, peeled
1 Tbs Agave or 2 dates
3 cups Water
1 cup Beets, grated
1 cup Zucchini, grated
1 cup Carrots, grated
2 tbs Raisins, soaked 1 hr
1 Apple or pear, chopped
½ cup fresh or frozen Berries
In bowl, place ¼ cup of each veggie, ¼ of the apple or pear, mix in raisins & yogurt.

Believe me when I tell you that I know this. My public library has an amazing selection of books on raw food and live food. With the exception of Alissa's book, every book on the subject that I own I purchased after I first got it from the library! The reason Alissa's book is an exception is that when I put it on hold I was number 16 on the queue. I figured if it was that popular it was something I wanted.
"I figured if it was that popular it was something I wanted."
guess thats one way to do things ;)
wish our library had stuff/would get stuff like raw foods books. i requested a book once on foraging that was in the next closest library, an hour away. it took three weeks...
RawVegRon, a great way to have beets is to grate 2-3 medium beets and toss them with a raw vinaigrette dressing. I add some Dijon mustard to my dressing, but that's not raw. Grated Beet Salad is really delicious. Try it.
