To activate the rejuvenating ability of your body, the salad is topped with colorful dressing made from exotic but easy to find fruits. It looks so beautiful you will want to admire it before you eat it!

Clever Carrot Cake

This guilt inducing dessert has been transformed into a raw vegan creation devoid of forbidden calories. This carrot cake is made with carrots, walnuts, almonds, shreds of coconut and cinnamon. It is glazed with creamy cashew frosting in place of the usual artery clogging cream cheese. It's a great source of vegetarian protein. Its intense nourishment, opulent look and celestial taste usually elicits cries of "It tastes better than baked".
