Raw Walnut Tacos with Jalapeño and Cilantro Salsa *low fat*


Don't forget to visit also my facebook page 
 and give me your like and share, thanks!

Many taco recipes use walnuts for the "meat" taste. I decided to make a low fat version using small amount of walnuts, portabello mushrooms, garlic, pinch of cumin and splash of tamari. I got my boyfriend to taste it, since I don't have so much experiences with non vegan version of tacos and he approved the taste and said, that he wouldn't notice it's not meat. I myself, was also very satisfied with the taste and I can't wait to make these great tacos again.

I always try to make my recipes tasty not only for vegans, raw vegans or vegetarians but also for those eat eat dairy and meat. That's my biggest goal with my recipes. Making food that is healthy, nutritious and so delicious, that you forget about junk food for ever. Who needs unhealthy food when there are easy ways to prepare nutritious, colourful and fresh food every day.

Sometimes, it takes me only couple of minutes to prepare my food. I heard people saying that raw food diet requires a lot of time. Really? I can make a raw vegan cheese cake in half an hour. That you need to dehydrate food for hours? How many times did I upload recipe that required dehydrator? Maybe once. You don't need any dehydrator to eat raw and dehydrating doesn't actually take your time. You can turn on your dehydrator before going to sleep and on the next morning you get fresh made granola or dehydrated fruits for breakfast. Eating healthy is easier then you think!
