“Raw food is the preparation of whole uncooked foods. In this way of preparing foods, all the living enzymes and nutrients stay alive to aid the body in healing on a cellular level. Raw foods are never processed over 118 degrees; beyond this temperature the food loses its nutritional value.”
That sounds so scientific, doesn’t it? It’s quite the opposite though – uncooked, unprocessed whole foods as nature intended. Wait, even that sounded a bit too scientific. Let’s break that mood:
Raw Vegan Avocado Lime Pie
Raw Vegan Brownie
Introducing our new line of raw foods and guilt-free desserts. Not only are they guilt-free, they’re actually good for you. Seriously!
Let’s take the Superfoods Cacao Mint Tart, for example. it’s a delicious crunchy-crusted little pie with a creamy, minty chocolatey filling – Chef Brian says “It tastes to me just like an Andes Candy!”
It has the amazing taste down, and then we boosted the health benefits – we added in superfoods like maca
, which is known to boost energy, balance hormones and support endocrine health; cacao
, which has been shown to help the cardiovascular system (chocolate is good for your heart!)
; and spirulina
, the high protein, nutrient-dense, immune boosting blue-green algae.
Raw Vegan "Meatballs" with our own Raw Marinara Sauce
It’s not just desserts, either – you’ve just gotta try the Raw Vegan “Spaghetti & Meatballs.” We made “pasta” out of zucchini without cooking it, paired it with “meatballs” made of a walnut base and topped it all in dollops of our raw marinara sauce (which has quite a nice kick!). You’ve got protein from the walnuts, which are among the highest in Omega-3s around and have also been shown to help lower cholesterol.
Then there’s the zucchini, high in vitamin C, manganese, B vitamins and antioxidants and tomatoes from the sauce, well, come on, they’re tomatoes
. No explanation necessary.
Right now these are available only in our Ocean location but we’ll be rolling them out to Shrewsbury soon as well. Give ’em a try and let us know what you think (PS: You don’t need to register to comment!)
