Raw is a lifestyle where you eat uncooked food. Not always a raw lifestyle is vegan. When you combined raw with vegan, personally for me, is one of the most beautiful, fun, creative, earthing and conscious lifestyle. I discovered this lifestyle in Instagram and since, I had learn so much about it. Raw diet also includes seeds and nuts. These past few weeks I have been able to do raw cookies and brownies and I LOVE IT! It is very fun, simple, nutritious and delicious. All I need is a strong food processor, a mold and a fridge to store it. Raw brownies are gooey and delicious.
