Day 9… Dessert time!

30 Aug

So today was a special day!  We ate out!  Ryan and I were out shopping this morning and around 1:30 p.m. we realized we were running on merely green juice and cantaloupe…  Luckily we were close to a great vegan restaurant and bakery (;

Wildflour Vegan Bakery and Garden Grille in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.  HOLEY CRAP!  We were very lucky today they regained power (Oh Irene) and the doors were re-opened!

For l-inner (lunch-dinner) I had Reggie’s Raw Heaven.  This seriously was heaven (and I know you would agree Heather!!!).  Reggie’s Raw Heaven is a big plate of arugula that was lightly tossed in an olive oil vinaigrette then sliced mango, grapefruit and avocado is spread around and the entire dish is topped with a beet infused jicama and cashew gamasio!  BREATHE.  I gobbled it up!!  Then I couldn’t stop smiling.

We then walked two doors down to Wildflour Vegan Bakery and went nutz.  Ryan and I split the raw raspberry coconut cheesecake.  He couldn’t stop talking about it!  We also took some things to go:  2 raw-reos, a raw coconut macaroon, a raw chocolate ganache, a raw fruit leather, and raw banana bread walnuts.  Wow… typing out everything we bought makes me giggle.  Can you tell we had a sweet tooth?

Ok so enough of that, time for a recipe! (For Natalie from NittyGrits)

Raw Apple Crisp

Serves 2-4

2 sweet apples, cored and diced

1/2 orange, juiced

1/2 tsp. cinnamon + 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, divided

1/8 tsp. ginger

1/8 tsp. nutmeg

Pinch sea salt

2 Tbsp. raw pecans

2 Tbsp. raw hazelnuts


In a medium bowl combine the diced apples, orange juice, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg in a bowl; toss to coat.  Let sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

In a food processor combine 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, sea salt, pecans and hazelnuts.  Pulse until the nuts are resembling cous cous.

Add 1/2 the nut mixture to the cinnamon apples and stir to coat.  Pour into a serving dish, or 2-4 ramekins, and top evenly with the remaining nut mixture.


I love this… so healthy and fast (if you have other things to do while it sits in the fridge to soften haha!!).
