Art Of Raw At The Garden Zadar

Art Of Raw At The Garden Zadar

While there are plenty of good restaurants to choose from in Zadar, Croatia, it is quite difficult to find vegan options, so HappyCow has been my savior! In particular, it helped us discover the Art of Raw. It was a little bit difficult to find the location, as the entrance that leads to the restaurant is small. So we asked for directions and were able to find it. Once we arrived,…

Almond Hazelnut Bars

Almond Hazelnut Bars

This recipe is a bit of a weird experiment gone good. I wanted to play around with the idea of using both the oven, as well as my dehydrator, to make some half-baked / half-raw bars.

I have a dehydrator, but unfortunately its a rather basic one, and the motor doesn’t…

Restaurant Review: The Springs, Los Angeles

Restaurant Review: The Springs, Los Angeles

Nestled between hip art galleries and coffee shops is a 13,500 square foot vegan paradise in downtown Los Angeles called The Springs. This vegan café and juice bar* meets yoga studio and state-of-the-art spa would make any West-sider brave the 10. The holistically assembled desert oasis theme reminds one a bit of the oh-so-cool Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. Every dish is so elegantly prepared and served, boasting the freshest…

Semi-Raw Vegan Lasagna

Semi-Raw Vegan Lasagna

So the other day I was thinking, if you can turn courgettes into noodles, then why not use them to make a semi-raw veggie lasagna? The classic lasagna pasta sheets are a lot wider than courgette slices, but if you layer them two by two, they work perfectly. For the filling, I used a nutty sun-dried tomato sauce, and vegan sour cream. This semi-raw lasagna is really tasty, but unfortunately it’s not…

Raw Spaghetti With Bolognese Sauce

Raw Spaghetti With "Bolognese” Sauce

We all know that being vegan or vegetarian doesn’t necessarily mean eating healthy, and sometimes it’s tough to say no to all the sugary, fatty, processed foods. I know I can’t resist them, especially during the holidays. But now that the Easter festivities are over, it’s a good moment to put the chocolate eggs aside, and get back on the right track by eating more fresh foods. Whenever I start…
