Mmmmm….Rawlicious Raw Food
This week I felt like I needed a detox.
Maybe cuz I went overboard on the vino from Labor Day, maybe because I was feeling lonely driving up and down the bare La Brea streets as the rest of LA decides to leave me for Labor Day, but either way there I was for lunch, craving something hearty and healthy and wholesome-ly cleansing…and the cayenne lemonade thing was not gonna do it. Better yet, I knew exactly where to go because not only would I get the most filling wholesome detox meal ever, but I’d get an OVER fill of love and appreciation to see my great friend Tigre at the same time. So off I went to Chef Rawsheed’s Sun Power Natural Cafe in Studio City, LA.
Ok, not only did I sit down in the most adorable lil corner cafe to a DELICIOUS delightful meal of the “BBQ Burger” made out of sunflower bread, marinated mushrooms and onions and a Raw Marninara Pizza with Cashew Cheese and this “chorizo” thing made out of something stupid fantastic that I literally had an orgasm in this public place. Ok, maybe I’m taking it overboard.. .but I seriously LOVED it. I’m a hugie foodie for anything, but especially Raw. I went Raw for 30 days a few months ago and have adopted the holistic way of eating into my diet whenever I can. But the best part to this yummy blog isn’t so much the food- but about the beautiful heart behind the delicious dishes made. My great friend and Chef Tigre is the newest member to the team who adds the life and zest to the entire place beyond the food. Here’s just a lil clip that captures the passion this man has for his food:
Anyway, make your way out there and do give Chef Tigre a huge hug for me. And congrats him cuz his glow isn’t just from his delish dishes, but also from just getting engaged! For more info on what going Raw is like, check out this awesome clip from another fave Raw femme of mine that exudes beauty, wholesome, and delicious diva all in one name: Gabrielle Brick. Oh my gosh..if my video and pics didn’t urge u to try raw, this yummy video of Gabrielle will. I like when u say her name backwards fast it says “Brill”- cuz she is, if you haven’t tried her genius ONE Raw chocolate bars. Yummmmm…
