My First Raw Vegan Lunch:
Wheatberry Cafe is a fully raw vegan restaurant, located in Longwood, Florida. I went there for lunch and got the falafel and the "Today is your day" juice. I was starving, so I was a little leery that it wouldn't fill me up at first, but it ended up keeping me full until late that evening.
The falafel was great, and it really stuck to my ribs. I can't quite remember what they made it with, but I was surprised by how much flavor the dish had. The lime, chipotle, and avocado sauce was also a nice touch. It married very nicely with the other flavors.
If you're looking for healthy power foods, you can't go wrong at this place. They even have a juice cleanse program. Considering that their juice was so delicious, I'm considering trying it. It was a little pricey, but I would spend just about the same amount of money if I tried to recreate the juices at home.
Wheatberry Cafe even has raw brownies, macaroons, and other desserts that are super healthy for you. I haven't tried the macaroons, but the brownies are rich and decadent. They really fill you up and give you a nice energy boost.
If you're ever in the Longwood area and are looking for a light and healthy lunch, I recommend heading over to Wheatberry Cafe. :)
