Eating clean on date night

A couple of weeks ago we checked out Raw Aura, a restaurant we had been hearing great reviews about. The food was amazing, but probably not suitable for every palate. Its gluten free, dairy free, raw food- which just means its kept at a certain temperature so it is easier digested. We are striving to eat better as a family, this trip out was more about trying new things- instead of stuffing our faces with deep fried Chinese food  =p

Here is what the website says about using Raw ingredients : "By using 100% raw ingredients, this means nothing is heated above 43C / 105F. This retains the digestive enzyme, vitamin, and mineral content of one's dinner in its pure and natural state. These living foods are simple to digest, leaving the body light and energized since this simple form requires no extra energy from the body. Flavours are pure, fresh and intense, honouring the divine banquet provided by the earth"

Cool Huh?

And if I may add, even eating this food for one night, it did wonders for our digestive systems!

Why don't you give it a try, after all we should be preserving our health and body for Allah's sake.

Any who, check out their website:


A mix of kelp and zucchini noodles tossed in a light tangy maca infused almond butter based sauce with red pepper, fresh cilantro, romaine lettuce, red onions and topped with spiced almond bits.
Honestly, I had never tried zucchini before this and if no one told me, I would not even have known, what a good way to trick your kids into trying veggies!


Served warm, this red pepper and sunflower seed flax crust is topped with the chefs daily creation.
The pizza had kale on it, I have a new found love for kale! It taste awesome!
