I went there today skeptical… And had the chocolate pudding: first off it’s not pudding! You vegans can’t steal our names and make your food ours!
Pudding is pudding! If you want to call yours pudding-like substance ok! Ps the same goes for yogurt, veggie burger, tiramisu, ice cream, moon pies and definitely Cheesecake! Make up your own names! No piggybacking!
That being said; I had the pudding like substance from One Lucky Duck and let me tell you it was amazing! That being said; I am not giving up meat! But I can add some of their products to my diet!
Does it taste like pudding? No! It was delicious and tastes totally different. Like nothing you have had. Does it have a pudding consistency? No! It’s slightly thicker. Does it look like pudding? Yes. Will I buy it again? Yes, but at $11 that’s crazy! Maybe once in a blue moon! Will I try to reengineer it? Yes!
I’ll just have to sneak in a ziplock bag of grilled chicken to make these dishes perfect! 😝
Seriously; try it and you will be amazed at how delicious raw food can be!
If you think hard enough there are plenty of foods that are delicious, fruits, veggies, Nutbutters, coconut etc.. However; my body and lifestyle demands way more protein on a daily basis! 1-1.5g of protein per pound of bodyweight! At 250lbs It would cost me a fortune to eat enough protein, with vegan proteins normally come carbs, carbs for my body-type are the Devil! So for me; I couldn’t totally switch. Nor do I want to! But like I said; it won’t hurt for me to integrate a little in my diet.
Remember the phrase:
Everything in moderation! Too much of one thing isn’t good for you! The same goes for not enough of everything also isn’t good!
Check it out! And stay tuned for more from them!
The only problem with this place is the prices are insane! Not crazy…insane! If the pudding was a reasonable $6-6:50 each I would be in everyday!
That’s a guaranteed $32.50 a week! And I would most likely buy more stuff as I go and look. But at $11 each maybe one a week if they are lucky!
If only they were reasonable! I could probably get a lot more people to go! Even those of us that aren’t vegan!
**Update** July 7th 2014
For being raw vegan and zero dairy it wasn’t that bad! The mint pseudo ice cream tasted like ice cream but the other flavor and the brownie chunks were noticeably different, but as a whole it was delicious and I would get it again. However; the chocolate pseudo pudding is by far my favorite! It tastes like real pudding and I wouldn’t mind eating it daily! If only it was more affordable!
**Update** July 10th 2014
Last night my girlfriend made the avocado Pseudo pudding recipe from here and she hit the nail on the head! She has all the cookbooks from Pure Food and Wine, so It was exactly the same consistency, color and flavor! It was delicious, lucky for me she made a big batch, so I can enjoy it for the next couple days! I had a little this morning for breakfast!
It’s great for battling a sweet tooth while staying on your diet! The best part is the recipe is raw, so how hard can it be! Avocados, cocoa and probably a few other ingredients together and boom yummy pudding like substance! It satisfies your healthy omega requirements and gives you a treat at the same time!
Check out Pure Food & Wine as well as One Lucky Duck! I promise you won’t be upset even though it’s raw vegan! If you happen to be raw vegan however; it may ruin your life! The products are soo good it may ruin other places for you and make you go broke only eating their food! I am not sure if they still sell cookbooks, but if they do, invest in them and take your raw vegan lifestyle to the next level! If you aren’t raw vegan like myself, some of the recipes will give you another tool for your toolbox on your way to a healthy balanced lifestyle!
Remember my catch phrase: Everything in moderation! That goes for anything and everything in life! If you can stick by that, you will have a happy, healthy and fun life! That’s my recipe for success!
It’s on my when we go to extremes that we get in trouble! Think about that!
**Note** Stay tuned July 19th for more!
