The enzymes found in our veggies is the life force ... when we cook our veggies we lose those enzymes rapidly. I guess if you feel you must cook your veggies, then how about a light steam instead.
One of my faves is an Avocado Salad
Sweet Annie Kale Salad
From How We All Went Raw Recipe Book
2 heads kale, remove stems and tear kale into pieces
1/4 cup extra-virgin, cold-pressed, olive oil
1/4 cup raw unheated honey
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup raisins
2 Tbsp pine nuts
1. Combine in salad bowl
2. With clean hands massage ingredients for 5 minutes to soften the kale and blend flavors together.
Place onto salad plates and enjoy.
