Raw Vegan Carrot Cake

raw vegan carrot cake

OK, so I am experimenting with some different food ideas so that I can expand my options on my journey to healing my body.

As much as I LOVE an original baked carrot cake (seriously, carrot cake is my favourite!!!!) I thought I would try out a different version. I was researching some options and the raw ideas I saw looked SUPER YUMMY, I decided to go for it.

This is my own invention of a raw vegan carrot cake. I didn’t have all the ingredients of some of the recipes so I have used this opportunity to get creative in the kitchen.

I have included some superfoods that have incredible cleansing & healing benefits to the body, particularly assisting the liver, central nerve system & thyroid.
