4 Veggies That Are Delicious When Eaten Raw

By Genevieve Cunningham

Most things that we eat are better after they’ve been prepared and cooked. Steak, potatoes, macaroni and cheese. And most things are actually healthier for us once they’ve been cooked as well. But sometimes we want something to eat, and we want it now. We don’t want to wait for the preparation or the cook time. Luckily, there are a few foods that are both delicious and healthy when eaten raw. If you’d like some healthy snacks in your diet that take very little effort, take a look at these delicious when raw veggie options.

Carrots

Carrots are good whether they’re cooked or raw. If you choose to eat them raw, they offer a nice crisp texture and a bit of sweet, watery flavor. Carrots make a great side to any meal, a solid addition to a salad, or a scrumptious snack that can be completely raw or dipped in a delectable dipping sauce.

Cucumber

Cucumbers can be washed, sliced, and eaten completely raw. In fact, this is the way that most people prefer cucumbers. They offer a fresh flavor with a crispy texture. This food is also incredibly good for you. It’s full of water as well as Vitamin C, making it both delicious and super healthy.

Cauliflower

This is a veggie that doesn’t get much attention. Cauliflower doesn’t have much flavor, but the flavor that it does have is very unique. Its texture is considered both hard and slightly gritty. This food is one that is packed full of Vitamin C, which means it’s a great immune booster. If you haven’t tried this as a raw snack yet, it might be worth giving a shot at your next opportunity.

Kale

Giving you a boost of Vitamins C, A, and K, kale is a great option for a grab and go snack. It also provides a blast of potassium and is extremely low calorie. While you probably won’t eat handfuls of kale all by itself, it’s a great addition to any salad. It’ll give it a little extra texture, a slightly bitter taste, and a wealth of benefits for your body and mind.

Having the option of grabbing a quick, easy, raw, and delicious snack makes life just a little bit easier. And the fact that it’s healthy is just icing on the cake. If you need some ideas to put on the menu, just use these veggie options and you have a jump start on a healthy diet with very little effort.
