Vegan MoFo Day 18: Gorilla Food review

On Saturday I had a mother-daughter day. My mom came downtown from Richmond and we did what most mothers do with their daughters: shopped. I did have a mission. I needed to get my Halloween costume. It was quite the little trek for my mom. I took her to my favorite vegan restaurant in Vancouver. I just LOVE this place. I feel so good after eating there. And its surprisingly filling even though it is quite light. Its a raw vegan restaurant, which means that none of the food is cooked above 118 degrees. Everything is organic and raw and its FANTASTIC. The flavour combinations are just like a party in your mouth (lol perverts). But seriously, so good.

Anyways, go to Gorilla Food . My mom loved her pizza but went crazy for my Thai Fresh Wraps . She just couldn't get enough of them. Especially this amazing Raisin Chutney. I also had the Jungle Coleslaw . Which is pretty much a staple for me. Its the best Coleslaw I've ever hand in my life. No joke. And I realize that was a bold statement, but I stand by it. My mom got the Ital Veg pizza. Raw pizzas are very different from a regular slice of pizza. And still very different from a hot vegan pizza. But I do LOVE raw pizza. The veggie flax crusts are really cool and nut cheese is delish.

What an amazing meal. Thank you Gorilla Food for being in business. I've missed you. I haven't been there in quite a few months. Its been too long.

That even I wanted to eat clean but filling so I made some coconut greens and quinoa. Really simple but tasty dish

Coconut greens
1 head of broccoli, chopped
3 stalks kale, leaves removed
1/4 head of napa cabbage
3 tbsp coconut meat
160ml can low fat coconut milk
1 tsp sea salt

1. Put vegetables into wok with 1/4 cup water and cover. Cook on high for 2 minutes, or until bright green.
2. Add coconut meat, milk and sea salt. Combine and cover. Cook for another 3 minutes.
3. Once cooked, serve on top of quinoa.

I don't know why that picture won't rotate. Its really annoying but there you have it. A majahly nutritious meal that super quick and easy to throw together. 

I have a couple other recipes to share with you. I think because I didn't cook on Sunday that I went through withdrawals. Monday night I cooked up a storm. So I'll save those recipes for tomorrow.............................................................. Oooooohhh the anticipation is killing you, isn't it? lol
