Hooraw for raw?

I have a tendency to avoid food and exercise trends when they first come about. Actually, I have a tendency to avoid all trends when they first come about. So I’ve always been relatively cautious about the whole raw thing. I mean, I’m a naturally cold person. I like my food to warm me up. Sue me!

Last night was my third time ever making a “raw” dessert. I will say that it’s absolutely ridiculous when you have a really small food processor. It was a long, messy and really annoying experience.

It’s not enough to sour me on raw foods — I understand the benefit. I don’t believe that it’s necessary to eat 100% raw, but I do think North Americans need to incorporate more raw foods into their diet in order to benefit from more nutrients. It was an interesting experience, but I’ll admit I was kind of pissed off by the end of it.

Anyway, this recipe was mostly adapted from the Oh She Glows two-layer raw chocolate brownies. The only difference I made was adding a drop of orange extract to both layers, making them chocolate orange brownies.

I didn’t think, after the long and relatively annoying process of making them, that the brownie would be worth it, but… it was.

Sorry for this stub of a post. I’ll have some cool shots from my weekend up on Sunday or Monday — I’ll be learning how to make the most of photos taken with my phone and how to use Photoshop for blog images, so wish me luck!
