I'll tell you what I love most about raw food: nothing (or so I thought). After a meal out last summer that felt more like punishment than anything else, I'd sort of thrown in the "raw" towel and vowed never to torture myself in that way again. It wasn't the idea of raw food that was upsetting me. It wasn't even the way the food looked. It was more the way the food tasted during that raw nightmare meal.
But then? There was Merry.
I discovered Merry's raw Miracle Tart in the neighborhood health food store during my lunch break one afternoon—specifically the almond butter tart. I picked one up optimistically, and was happily surprised. The tart is rich and chocolatey, sweet but not too sweet, and full of ingredients I'm not entirely embarrassed to admit that I've consumed.
Thank you, Merry!
