LET'S GET ROCKED
Adhering to a vegan diet doesn't mean depriving oneself of indulgent cakes and pastries. Just ask the folks over at NYC eatery Rockin' Raw. The creation of chef Tere Fox and husband Luis Salgado, Rockin' Raw has been serving up insanely good raw, plant-based cuisine since 2009. The menu has a mix of Creole and Peruvian flavors, the result of Tere and Luis' childhoods in New Orleans and Peru, and dishes are created to be nutritionally-balanced and affordable to show that you can adopt a raw lifestyle that is both delicious and budget-friendly.
But back to those desserts. Rockin' Raw has a most excellent selection of pies, cakes, and cookies and we love them so much, we've added some of our favorite to the Organic Avenue menu! Like the sweet cream sandwich cookies. In flavors like Cacao Maca, Red Velvet, and Salted Chili, you'd never suspect that they're at all healthy, made with flax seeds and Irish moss, a nutritional seaweed that's rich in iron, calcium and potassium. Have one of the Cinnabuns with your mid-day coffee -- they're rich and flavorful, containing buckwheat, oats, and coconut nectar. And if chocolate is more your thing, you must try the Moundz. Inspired by the candy bar with a similar name, the coconut and cacao treat is guaranteed to fix your chocolate jones real good.
