Rawlicious - Coming Soon!

Yes! This is it! Rawlicious !!!

This is the most exciting post, which I have been waiting to share with you. I have been on the go this past week, constantly going from one place to another, a lot of transiting and with just enough time to check e-mails from here & there. But now I have the day off to catch up on things and work on my own projects .. and time to tell you the best news. So much going on lately..

But this is by far the most exciting!!! I am currently working on a project with a couple, Tracy & Angus, here in Toronto to open a most phenominal new Raw Cafe - Zen Den - Eco-friendly Product Emporium - Distributors of the purest, most High Vibe Superfoods, and the most nutritious and crazy delicious Living Food products ever!!! And also.. the health enforcing Inner Sanctum complete with Infared Sauna and MRS2000 mat. (interesting article about that here) We are going to share the most up-to-date, best health & wellness technologies and information available. Of course, I will be posting more about this..cause it's my main area of focus these days.. but for now, here's some pics of what we've been up to:

Smoothie experiments! We have come up with some of the best flavours - crazy, crazy, highest quality ingredients - most delicious drinks I've ever tasted. Seriously - you have to come check these out!!!

Gojis and pumpkin seeds soaking to make..

Rawkalicious Cookies
They were an impromptu inspiration I came up with to use the almond pulp from all those nut milk experiments. I made them quickly while Tracy was on the MRS2000 mat (8 mins) using all the ingredients I could find around me in her kitchen. & they were so amazing we have made 3 batches since, in less than a week!
(This is Tracy making this batch : )

Angus's incredible Valentine Macaroons.
They taste even better than they look. Absolutely delicious!!

Check out all of the smoothies we made..and this is only a few of them!!

& here's Tracy to the rescue to make us a serious Green juice.
That was so good after all those smoothies and sweet stuff!
(Wow, I've really come a long way..to think I would crave a green juice! ..bet Mom never saw that one coming! lol)

Ok, now..check out whats going on downstairs...
This is street level, where Rawkalicious is going to be.

The walls have just come down and it is just starting to be reconstructed.
The shadowy back there is me.

A bunch of guys have just showed up to work on the place. Angus is at the back in the orange t-shirt. He's doing most of the work reconstructing the place.

Tracy and Angus are such a phenomenal couple to work with, so positive, exciting, motivated, full of great ideas and fun to be around. It is such a joy to be working here with them! This spot is loaded with happiness and has the best feel-good, uplifting energy, I love it!!!

& ps - We are hoping to open in March.. but I will definitely let you know an exact date when it gets closer!! ..and when the website is up! ..it's coming soon!
