Raw On Tour!

Eating Vegan and Raw on the Road with Pandie Suicide

Hemp Protein Shake, Raw Cherry Cheesecake and Super-Wellness Shot from Real Raw Live February 10, 2010

Today I stopped by Real Raw Live in Franklin Village, Hollywood, to get a bite to eat. And by bite, I really mean sip! It was a wonderful rainy day again, all grey and gloomy and beautiful outside (I love a little of this dreary weather, it’s a welcome change from the LA sun seeking to scorch me with its far-reaching rays all the time!) so I figured now would be as good a time as any to top up the olde immune system again.

To start:

Super-Wellness Shot (pictured above)

This delightfully dark green drink was comprised of all sorts of sexy, constituents, from cayenne pepper to lemon juice, algae and chlorophyll. It’s not as bad as it sounds, I swear! It’s got a spicy lil tang to it, but you just knock it back in one or two hits and you’re good to go. You’ll feel great and your immunity will get a little ramp up while you’re at it!

The Drink

Protein Power Smoothie: This was full of hemp protein (be sure to ask them to make it with hemp protein if that’s what you like because they also have (non-vegan) whey protein and I believe brown rice protein too – you don’t want to get poisoned!), L-Glutamine (supposed to be awesome for your muscles!), almond milk, bananas, almond butter and cinnamon. I also added the superfood Maca to it. (Costs a little extra but certainly worth it! Maca is an ancient South American superfood meant to aid your libido, hormone balance and energy levels!)


This was a cherry dream cheesecake by Earth Cafe. These are too good, they are melt in your mouth tasty! Also completely vegan, raw and gluten-free.

According to the ingredients list it contains: Fresh cherries, soaked cashews, coconut, coconut butter, agave nectar, soaked pecans, soaked walnuts, lemon, lecithin, vanilla bean extract, cinnamon and sea salt.

The label also mentions that it’s made with love, yum!

The whole thing was gone in 60 seconds, I swear! Just that good!

    Pandie, I am so jealous of all the raw places there in LA! Sydney is slowly coming around to more vegan places to eat, but we are a way off raw. There is one or two companies making raw cakes and things which are delicious, but not as much as LA! Love your blog, glad to have found it!

    Chilli! How are you!! Glad to know Sydney is slowly catching on, and that you have some cakes and things to eat at least! We are very fortunate here in LA with all the great restaurants and health food stores that stock raw goodies. It’s traveling to places like the midwest which makes things interesting, and that’s where we get to improvise haha. I’ve got a few bits and pieces on that coming up soon. But that really makes me appreciate the food in LA and take as much advantage of the gourmet raw stuff here as possible! Would love to come back to Sydney some time soon and go out to get a vegan bite ! Or take you out to Juliano’s or Cru etc in LA if you decide to come visit! Hope you are good xx
