Staying Alive with Living Foods

The "Clean Me" Juice blend in my fantastic re-usable container

As many of you may have garnered from my previous posts (or, rather, lack of posts), I have just completed another set of final examinations.  Yes, for 2 whole weeks I was bent over my notes and under the general wave of anxiety that accompanies these necessary things.  The good news is that every exam period gets better and better because I discover little tricks to make it so.

This time, my little secret weapon was a 15 day raw food challenge from Cruda Cafe (you may remember me purchasing said challenge from Living Social in this post).  

For 15 whole days, I got fed purely organic, raw meals that did 2 things:
1. Nourish me so that I could focus and do well on my exams
2. Save me time and money!

The Living Food chefs at Cruda Cafe in St. Lawrence Market are a lovely bunch; they are all incredibly passionate about fresh, healthy food and they don't mind telling you about it!  My favorite Cruda friend was excellent at making suggestions and she lead me on to my favorite dish of theirs: the Sweet Potato Mesquite Sandwich! Apart from their passion for food, Cruda is also very dedicated to the environment and a stipulation of the food challenge is that you bring your own containers to cut the waste of countless take-out containers, which I'm completely all for!

Without further ado, please feast your eyes on a portion of my raw feast.  Remember, my amateur photography skills don't do them nearly enough justice and they definitely tasted a million times better than they looked--and wouldn't you agree that they look quite fantastic?

The Saint Lawrence Green market Salad

The (infamous) Sweet Potato Mesquite Sandwich

 The Mixed Berry Tart

The Raw Nanaimo Bar

The quick and dirty: Mosey on down to St. Lawrence Market and check out Cruda Cafe to try that crazy Sweet Potato Sandwich!  They also offer raw food "uncooking" classes, for those of you who want to master these fresh dishes!
