Planet Raw Restaurant

Currently I am on my fourth annual “No Meat March,” which I have elected to go 95% raw vegan (I left some room for the non-vegan wines and a couple cooked items that may slip by). No, it’s not for religious reasons, No Meat March just sounds better than No Meat February.

During this month I plan on indulging at one of my favorite raw vegan restaurants, Planet Raw. Their menu is extensive, with only a couple items that include cheese. I intend to try everything on their menu. Here is what I had so far:

Cappuccino (It had honey in it, so technically not vegan. I will not be ordering it again until April)

Coconut Water (Always my favorite)

BBQ Kale Chips (These were not my favorite – I like the dry ones at Whole Foods much better)

Mc”Chick-Un” Breasts Sandwich: Mushroom macidamia “chick-un” w/ nut cheeze, garlic ranch, wild arugula, heirloom tomato, pickle & onion -toasted on sprouted flax.(This was AMAZING and one of my favorites –  mainly because the mushroom that is made to be the “Chick-un”)

Lexi Sliders: Luscious pumpkin tortellini, sundried heirloom tomato, avocado, onion on flax w/ balsamic drizzle (I would order these again – good choice)

Playa Rawviolies: Burning man Favorite! served w/ a soup spoon) turnip cradling chanterelle mushroom nut paté in sweet maple truffle sage butter w/ pignoli (drink the sauce! (add shredded finely aged real cheese $3) (These were great, except there were on top of too much oil. I would like it better minus all the oil)

Hi! My name is Catherine Denise, at the risk of sounding a bit cheesy I am going to share a little of my obsession with you… My love affair with food began as a very young child; my oldest and fondest memories consistently include food, family, and friends. As always, I credit my food obsession to growing up in the Philippines, my huge Nebraska family, but mostly the many influences from my beautiful, Filipino mother. Around fifth grade my father was stationed to Las Vegas and there I was exposed to an entirely new cuisine, where my obsession with restaurants began. I have been known to spend every last dime I had on a meal and wholeheartedly believe that is how everyone should live! I love all types of food, mostly healthy, but with a dash – or more – of the bad! No one can live without a little bad! Food, to me, is comfort. It’s something that can bring a smile to your face and make your heart feel good. It’s something you share with a neighbor or gift to a new friend. It’s something you make for someone when you can’t find the words to say “I’m sorry” or “I am so in love with you.” Food is something that can heal a broken heart or help you celebrate success! It’s the one thing in this world that binds us all together and that we cannot live without. To fuel my food obsession I own Last Minute Accessories, so be sure to visit and keep me fed!
