I'm really tired and ready for a nap, to take a nap or push for 9 and an early bedtime? For now I will push on while clothes are being washed and food is cooked.
The week prior to my trip I went to see my little cousin in her ballet recital. She was amazing and such a beautiful and graceful ballerina.
Afterwards we went to a Caribbean vegan, raw food restaurant in Brooklyn, Rawstar. This was the best raw food experience I have had by far!
To start I had their house tea sweetened with agave:
For my main course I had the Nappa sandwich:
I also tried my cousins pizza, which again was incredible. The crust was a nut base with I believe a macadamia nut cheese and plenty of fresh toppings.
My aunt had the curry tempeh with pineapple chutney and the tree fish salad (tried a bit of this seaweed based salad and again delish):
Before leaving for the afternoon, one of the owners took my cousin into the kitchen to show her around and let her create a dish of her own. She came out with zucchini spaghetti topped with tomato sauce and pesto. She was ready to dig in but was convinced to save it for dinner.
