Is It Safe To Eat Veggie Burgers After They Have Soaked In Water

Is ground beef meat ruined if soaked in water?

It is not ruined. You can still use it but I wouldn't make burgers out of it. Make a pasta sauce or sloppy joe sauce and you will be fine. Noone will taste it.

What was wrong with my veggie burger?

No, sometimes soy burgers are mixed with vegetables. It sounds that the package was dehydrated veggies. Since it does not have fat or grease in them it will be a little wet. So it is best to cook them longer because you get a crust on the outside and the inside is moist.

Is it okay to eat a leftover burger after I refrigerated it and left it overnight?

YES.Provided you did not put the leftover part after 2 + hours in your dogy bag.

Vegan college students: what do you eat?

how do you eat vegan food in college and stay healthy without going broke? i've heard that you don't have a kitchen or anything in college (don't laugh, i'm clueless when it comes to college), so what do you do?

Is It safe to wash fruits with soap?

I don’t understand why anyone would use soap to wash fruits and veggies, you may cause some stomachaches, and diarrhea . Soap is to hard to get off. If you want to rinse with something besides water, you can use white vinegar. Berries and items like lettuce are going to be especially hard because they are thin skinned. So take a spray bottle with 1/4 white vinegar and 3/4 water and spray well, then rinse with water and set on a paper towel. Fruits that have skins like oranges and avocado’s you don’t have to wash. Anything thing grown, you need to give them a scrub with a brush. Something that that gets a lot of dirt in it is Celery or Rhubarb, take spray and rinse. You know there are 2 ways to make sure your getting fresh lettuce, check the core where it’s been cut, if it’s not clear (we’ll say white) and it’s has an orange or brown tint it’s been sitting there for a long time, that’s considered old. But there is also another way that I was taught by my Grandmother and that is to sniff the lettuce, I’m talking about Iceberg. It’s odd but you can tell what is fresh that way you can see a little tint. Your probably going to eat it fast to begin with. I tap out the core on my cutting board and pull it out and then I slice my Iceberg in half and then spray to clean it because it’s easier to spray through the creases that way and then I quarter my lettuce and cut 3 of the quarter’s into sections and put it in a plastic bag so it’s easy to make a salad faster that way. The last quarter I put the whole thing in another plastic bag so it can be pulled apart to make sandwiches or burger’s. When I was a kid we were raised on Iceberg lettuce. But I’m older and my favorite is Butter lettuce. To all who read from me I started a new program called IMPERFECT PRODUCE and they deliver it to me. It’s not like when you get it at the store but it’s still fresh from the store and there is no waste. The fruits or veggies might have a dimple or is little, but it is fresh and just as nutritious as what you buy in the store, but it’s my way of doing the green thing. I say WASTE, IS NO TASTE!. If you go to my Facebook page you can see how it arrives and looks, as always, Hugs Renee

Fruit and vegetable diet?

Greetings!

Yes, canned fruits and vegetables have been cooked. Frozen fruits and vegetables have also been cooked. (parboiled) Prepared juice from the supermarket is pasteurized. (cooked) Corn and peas can be found in the produce department. In order to eat beans raw, they need to be soaked and sprouted.

The best books to start with are "Raw Food Made Easy" by Jennifer Cornbleet, and "The Complete Book of Raw Food" by Lori Baird and Julie Rodwell. Both have good recipes that don't require specialty equipment, and "The Complete Book of Raw Food" is packed with information and resources.

I usually start the day with a smoothie. (Frozen bananas, fresh OJ, agave nectar) Frozen bananas are great to have on hand, because when you put them through a juicer or a grinder, it's just like soft serve ice cream.
Other staples of mine include cashew ranch dip, flax seed tostadas, guacamole, nut burgers, onion bread...

For a quick snack I grab a LaraBar and a coconut water.

If you decide that raw food is for you, and you want to try more adventurous recipes, you will probably want a dehydrator, a juicer, a high speed blender, and a spiral slicer.

It is also helpful to keep in mind that one is considered a raw foodist if they consume 75% or more of their food raw. This leaves plenty of wiggle room for the occasional cup of herb tea, or a veggie burger.
