Rawsome Thanksgiving at Radha Yoga Eatery

As I danced up the narrow brick stairwell to Radha Yoga Eatery on Main Street, where the old Puccini's used to be, when I was young and 'cooked', I knew I was in for the terrific turkey-less treat of a luscious lifeline!

Sexy music blasting and hot high heel booted babe of a waitress serving up beers for a table of German meat eaters. Full bar ready to go and all I saw was the raw menu and a yoga space I am revved to rent for my upcoming end of November PUTTING The SEXY INTO SPAGHETTI workshop.

I sit here, stuffed and satiated, after bringing home a doggie bag, overflowing with rawstruck gifts for my sleeping son, soon awake and sharing with his yummiest Mommy. As if I haven't had my Lioness' share, already. Yet, again, I know you can't get fat on Raw, so let's do it ...

We start with the freshest organic, assorted salad of local greens, including my favorite; arugula, along with sliced red beets, slivered almonds and sun-dried pumpkin seeds. Drizzled with divinely delicious lemon and honey dressing, to un-dress for!

Next, I heartily dig into the most consciousness-raising creation of a creamy, dreamy, veggie lasagna, filled with the smoothest hemp configuration, a hungry mouth could water over ... Oh, and the cashew cheese was beyond appetizing. No fat in that raw dairy, baby.

Since the house-specialty of sinfully sumptuous nori rolls takes a while, my appetizer was served, soon after my richly layered lasagna. Wow! I am coming back just for a full force feed of THE BEST RAWK'N SUSHI I have ever tasted! Quite liberally liberated with the rawstruck addition of Braggs Amino's and a teaser to catch between your teeth; of sesame seeds soaked in the sweetest, succulent substitute for soy sauce, every chinese food restaurant and SAD eater, should run to Rawsome Momma about!

Alright, you are literally aching to taste the melt in my heart living chocolate cake, bursting at the center with strawberry fields forever .... Need I mention the sexiest sliced wide-open figs? Looking up at me, with tenderness. Inviting. Exciting. Delighting my every sensory awakening. Opening up to a whole new RAWSOME REASON TO GIVE THANKS!!!!
