That's So Raw at Bernice Garden
There are great things happening for the vegan community and Little Rock, and evidence of that is all the wonderful vegan options popping up. One truly exciting vegan company on the rise is That's So Raw.
These two awesome ladies, Kendalyn Mckisick and Natashia Burch, are promoting healthy vegan food all over Central Arkansas. They will be at the Bernice Garden in Little Rock on Sundays until the market closes for the winter, and they have a storefront in Jacksonville. I have a lot more details to share, but I'm working on an article for the Arkansas Times, so I'll post that when it's up.
Last Sunday, I headed over to the Bernice Garden Farmer's Market to scope out the booth and get some vegan treats. I was happy to try every sample, from the energy bites to the pizza hummus, and let me tell you, there is an incredible amount of flavor going into this food.
I grabbed the peanut butter cheesecake brownie, flax crackers and pizza hummus to take home. I also grabbed some more hummus from Geek Eats. You can see my review of them from earlier this summer here.
Needless to say, I went home with a huge cooler full of hummus. I had to crack open the flax crackers and have a taste. These blew me away. They are sweet and crispy and delicious.
Josh and I devoured the cheesecake brownie. It was incredible. This food is so healthy, but it's also incredibly rich and satisfying. The flax crackers and pizza hummus didn't last very long in the house, either.
The next day, I brought the hummus and flax crackers for lunch with some quinoa/broccoli salad and raw veggies. What a delicious and nutritious lunch.
If you live in Central Arkansas, be sure to check out That's So Raw at the Bernice Garden on Sunday Mornings. Also, check them out on Facebook. Also, be on the look out for more information about them on the Eat Arkansas blog.
