“The best way to eat and drink is one that makes you feel healthy and happy!”

Buy local, buy fresh. 

Live in Orange County?

Rawr delivers creative and organic plant-based food right to your door. Whatever your personal goals or detox plans may be, rawr will work with you to create custom meal plans or even cater events.

Besides the creativity involved, Josh sources organic and often locally sourced ingredients to create these beautiful and satisfying plant-based dishes. As a classically trained chef, he brings his experience and gained insight toward health to deliver an incredible menu full of snacks, entrees, sweets, and sips as well as favorites that are always available, including: street tacos, pizzas, and nut mylks. I love the idea of ordering the kitchen sink which includes a few days worth of food; however, you can also order as little as you like if that suits.

As a raw vegan in Orange County (or anyone with an interest in health and keen to try new things), Shakti Juice & rawr have you sorted! The energy that flows within the organic, cold pressed juice and raw plant-based meals is amazing. Both companies reflect important sustainable practices and products that encompass holistic health. These companies may align for you whether you are coming off a juice fast and wanting to eat some raw gourmet food delivered to your door, or you may drink Shakti Juice and order the one off or weekly meal from rawr. The beauty is that these products are available and ready for whenever you choose! Locally sourced, locally made.

Pizza Fiesta & Raw Street Tacos

I am incredibly grateful for crossing paths with rawr through Instagram and being able to try out some of their incredible food. Have you ever tried raw pizza or raw tacos? I love playing around in the kitchen and making my own food, but there is also something amazing about being able to enjoy fresh raw food that someone else has created for you. I love supporting local, raw, vegan, organic food, especially food made with love. The amount of detail and energy that goes into creating rawr food is noticeable with every bite. Even through lengthy processes of dehydration, fermentation, soaking, and sprouting, their intention for nutritional and flavorful food will bring you positive energy and make you feel good. Eat local, eat fresh.

Order from Rawr!

SUNFLAIR Solar Oven

Standard

Cooking with free energy from the sun means money saved and more time to play instead of standing in the kitchen. Plus, it supports our eco-friendly lifestyle in so many ways! This makes us another step closer toward being sustainable. Have you heard of SUNFLAIR or solar ovens? I have dreamed of building a solar oven and using a dehydrator for so many years. Now, we are beyond excited to be cooking with our new portable solar oven.

dehydratorZaedyn searched for the perfect spot to set up our oven.

The Result?

Two thumbs up from Zaedyn!

We have yet to decide what solar food we will make next, but it was awesome to start with something simple. Zaedyn loves rice and veggies anyways, but rice and veggies become so exciting when it becomes solar food. With a sunny day, our solar oven heated up fast. Rice is cooked similar to how you would cook it on a stove. After letting some water heat up, rice is gently stirred in and left for only 20-40 minutes. Amazing! I can definitely say that this was the first time I have ever mowed the lawn and cooked rice at the same time. No need to worry about it burning!

This also acts as a dehydrator so I am thinking kale chips would be a good option to make. I would love to start eating more raw foods again and am keen to experiment with some raw sun burgers and raw breads. Endless possibilities! Did you know that you can even use it to bake a cake or cookies? What would you make in a solar oven?

Are you wondering how it works? UV Rays are trapped inside the oven, and SUNFLAIR has reflective material with an insulated layer to keep the heat inside and directed at the special pots, making yummy solar food thanks to the sun.

I am so excited that Zaedyn gets to be involved and be a part of new ways toward being eco-friendly. The pots do get really hot to touch, but Zaedyn loved finding our special place to cook and watching while he waited for our food to be done. This also gives us another chance to talk about solar power and other ways that we can use it.
