Raw? Gimme More!

I've always been rather afraid of this whole raw foods lark. I'm not adventurous with food, and I like me some  grease. Fry it, roast it, saute it, it's all good with me. But raw? Blergh. So when Dan was sent to buy me a chocolate bar and came back with some raw nonsense I wasn't best pleased. 

I had a cautious little nibble. And then gobbled the rest. It was like angels dancing on my tongue. If this is what raw foods taste like then consider me firmly on the band wagon my friends! I HATE raisins and have never dared to eat a date, but what a clever combination, it tastes like a moisty crumbly creamy chewy chocolatey orangey brownie with delicious little nutty crunchy bits in. Genius!


  1. Thank you for the kind words on my blog! I really appreciated them :) I didn't really realize how miserable I was being vegan, despite how much I wanted to be ethical in my eating decisions. I am a lot happier now. As I said before, maybe one day I will be vegan again, but for the time being, I'm happy and okay with being vegetarian :)

    That bar looks absolutely divine! I have been dabbling with the idea of a raw food diet (or at least raw foods and meals) for some time, but I never really knew where to begin. Salads and I don't get on very well, thanks to my stomach, but I bought a raw cookbook recently and would like to try some of the things from there! My husband thinks I'm nuts for wanting to eat raw things, haha

  2. We've been hesitant to try raw foods, too, but so far have liked most of the things we've ventured to try. The bar looks good!

  3. I agree - cooking something is enjoyable! Every once in a while I intentionally go for a raw meal, but it seems to happen most easily in the morning. Thus, a green smoothie!

  4. Pretty bar. Time for an international giveaway!

  5. Yeah it definitely is daunting, I doubt I'll ever go fully fledged raw, but now I'm definitely more open to trying things.

    ooohhh a giveaway eh...I'm thinking maybe a swap would be a good idea...



Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts, I look forward to reading them :-)
