Red Cabbage Grape and Mandarin Juice Homemade

by Helene Dsouza on March 21, 2014

Are you a raw food fan? Lately I have been noticing a certain food trend in Goa amongst the multicultural community, raw foodism. Raw foodism is a way of life and the aim is to consume only raw uncooked and mostly also organic vegetable fruits, nuts and milk products, sprouted grains, meats, eggs and fish. Currently in Goa, the most extreme and at the same time most common variation of raw foodism is raw veganism, which of course excludes all animal produce.

I don’t mind eating raw food as long as it’s fresh but I do need to confess here that I don’t necessarily enjoy eating raw veggies. I am the kind of person who will even cook the kohlrabi somehow while the rest of the world enjoys it in salads too. Do you like to eat raw veggies? If I would guess, I would say that most of the world population might not feel that convinced about the idea either. With that said, that’s where the problem arises.

As we know, cooking any food over heat destroys some of the beneficial nutrients for our body and the longer and the higher the temperature, the worse it gets. Most of us enjoy cooked food because it tastes better and taste in our society has a higher priority then the long term health benefits. It’s a fact, the world isn’t that healthy as it should be. I am not going to point fingers here because as I mentioned above, I don’t like to eat raw veggies.

So I do understand the problem, the endless conundrum in our society. So after all I thought, I could at least find a way to discover raw food for myself and in such a way that I can confidently recommend delicious and at the same time healthy recipes. Additionally, I have a good excuse right now since the summer heat has been rolling over the Indian west coast. The Indian summer heat rarely crosses 34 Celsius and I agree that doesn’t  sound much at all, but one has to consider the high humidity levels in the air which actually turns the whole environment into a big steaming bamboo basket. So what do you do when you are turning into a dumpling? You keep away from the hot kitchen, drink a load full of liquids and eat mostly cold dishes!

Bingo, you make yourself some filling and tasty juice to adjust to the weather conditions. You replenish your system with raw/unprocessed fruits and veggies and aim only for light and fresh foods. We are not new to homemade juices and I believe one can never have too many juice recipes. Today I am sharing a red Cabbage grape and mandarin juice. The star in this homemade juice is the red cabbage since red cabbage is mostly cooked in our society. But red cabbage has numerous health benefits and taking this veggie in raw can’t be wrong at all. The grape an mandarin go well with the red cabbage and they will help you fall in love with this juice.

Fun stuff! I would not have thought of this flavor combo, but it looks really good. I do eat raw food sometimes, but because I like the flavor, not of its health benefits (I get plenty of nutrients; too many!). Actually I read somewhere that one of the defining characteristics of mankind is we cook our food. So I’m not all that eager to jump on the raw bandwagon. Anyway, good post — thanks.

Red cabbage is really good for the liver and I used to juice some every day but I’ve never juiced it along with mandarin. Clever woman!
