passover vegan diet

#1 Postby madeincyberspace » Sun Mar 25, 2012 6:12 pm

So passover is in 2 weeks and I noticed that most of the healthy vegan foods are not allowed to be eaten for 8 days. If anybody celebrates passover, what do you eat to prevent from losing a lot of weight. Allowed to eat nuts (exception peanuts), quinoa, almond butter, sweat potatoes, fruits, most veggies. Please share your diet even if it is raw vegan

Here is the list of foods not allowed
Wheat
Oats
Rye
Barley
Spelt
millet
rice
buckwheat
Rice
Corn
Millet
Dried beans and lentils
Peas
Green Beans
Soybeans
Peanuts
Sesame Seeds

Hey,

I'm almost a raw vegan haha thanks to some food sensitivities and IBS. I'd do a green smoothie in the morning. Some fruit with some greens.. I think there are some recipes on here for these but the basic one is a couple cups of spinach and 1 banana with some berries and water.

For lunch you could do a quinoa pilaf? Or a sweet potato with a salad. Another good lunch is a collard or kale wrap with other veggies and some avocado in there. For supper you could do a squash with some other veggies and some beans, etc. You still have a lot of options! I agree with Fallen_Horse just be creative! You may discover some new veg dish that you love.
