|Pizza Rustica with petite Caesar Salad|
I have only begun experimenting with the raw vegan diet, but I have to admit that Beets has inspired me. There is definitely some appeal to not cooking (often shorter prep times) and I felt great, even after finishing my plate plus half a dessert. Like most vegan food, this fare won't leave you feeling too full or "heavy." My only word of caution is to take a friend with an open mind. If this is one of your first raw food experiences, leave the cynics at home and judge the food for yourself. My pizza may not have tasted like a traditional pizza, but it was amazing in its own right.
If you are in Austin or plan to visit, I highly recommend Beets Cafe.
