After starting our week with some desserts we ended our week with lots of yummy raw foods.

raw juice

Especially juices!!

raw lunch

Raw falafel with hummus and pickled veggies. Amazing.


Jax even joined us for some delicious raw foods at Luna’s Living Kitchen here in Charlotte! I love how they allow dogs on the patio. For some reason by the end of the week both of us were craving juices and raw foods.

living bagel

We shared a living raw bagel (made from almonds, zucchini, tomato and flaxseeds) topped with a cashew cream and veggies. So good!

pouring milk

And also got a bowl of raw cacao granola with fresh fruit and coconut milk.
