Raw vegan food is one of my favorite ways to eat healthy. I definitely do not eat a 100% raw vegan diet, or think that you have to eat a raw vegan diet to be healthy. However I do think that if you are eating a whole foods plant based diet, that you will naturally start eating more raw fruits and vegetables. For example, I created this raw vegan Pad Thai recipe using simple ingredients that I have grown to love over the past couple years of eating a plant based vegan diet. With that said, eating a raw vegan diet has its benefits.

One of those benefits is that it helps hydrate you more. This is because the foods maintain more of their water than they would if they were cooked. This is fantastic if weight loss, or weight management is your goal. The higher the water content of a food, the lower the calorie content is. The lower the calories content is, the more you can eat without gaining weight! Recipes like this raw vegan pad Thai are a perfect way to easily incorporate more raw vegan produce into your diet.

What is a raw vegan diet?

A raw vegan diet is pretty simple. Raw means uncooked, obviously. Therefore a raw vegan diet just implies eating a diet that is 100% uncooked/unprocessed food. This means no ingredients like beans, bread, grains, etc. I do believe that there are tons of benefits to eating a raw vegan diet. However, personally I do not think it is the healthiest. In today’s society you will probably find it too restrictive. However it is a great way to eat healthier meals such as this raw vegan pad Thai at home!

With that said, if you are eating a fully raw vegan diet, go you! There are plenty of healthy and happy raw vegans out there. For example, Fully Raw Krisitina is one of my favorite raw vegan influencers. I don’t think that I personally will ever go fully raw (I’ll stick to being a whole foods plant based vegan), however I will continue to create raw vegan recipes just like this raw vegan pad Thai! Here are some of my favorites:

Raw Vegan Pad Thai for everyone:

This Raw Vegan Pad Thai is one of those vegan recipes that you can serve to your non-vegan friends and family, and they will all love it! If you’re new to healthy eating and don’t know where to start, this is a great recipe for you to try! I know how difficult it can be navigating the early stages of your health journey. Trying to figure out what is healthy vs. what is just marketed as healthy is hard. This raw vegan pad Thai recipe is easy to identify as healthy, because just look at it! It is packed full of brightly colored vegetables. I always look for ways to make my food filled naturally bright colors (food coloring doesn’t count), because I know that each color has a nutrient associated with it.

Can I make this Pad Thai with noodles?

Yes! You can actually make this raw vegan Pad Thai two ways with noodles. The first way is using rice noodles. If vegetables really aren’t your thing, but you’re still trying to eat healthier, try adding rice noodles. This will bulk up the recipe a bit while still remaining healthy. This will make the recipe no longer raw vegan, so keep that in mind. If you want to add noodles to this recipe, but still keep it raw then you can try the second option: kelp noodles! I recently discovered kelp noodles and I am absolutely hooked! They are made with just kelp and taste just like regular noodles (no fishy taste I promise!). They’re hardly any calories, so if you’re a volume eater like me, then they’re a game changer!
