Porirua goes the raw food way

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By RHI­AN­NON MCCON­NELL

A Porirua cou­ple have set out to prove raw food can be de­li­cious.

Te Rito Mar­ket or­gan­is­ers Jana Gross­man­nova and Wiremu Grace are run­ning a raw food cafe at Satur­day’s Matariki mar­ket day at Te Rito Gar­dens.

They said raw food was all the rage at the mo­ment, but that though Auck­land had plenty of cafes fo­cused on the diet, Welling­ton was miss­ing out.

The cou­ple hope to rec­tify the prob­lem.

They said they had plans to start a juice bar and raw food cafe in Welling­ton.

The food in­cludes cheese­cake, bliss balls, smooth­ies, juices and other del­i­ca­cies that would usu­ally be full of su­gar and dairy.

Gross­man­nova said people of­ten as­sumed raw food was just about eat­ing car­rots and veg­eta­bles.

‘‘We want to show them that’s not true and we eat re­ally de­li­cious food,’’ she said.

The Ti­tahi Bay res­i­dent started eat­ing raw food af­ter suf­fer­ing from health prob­lems, all of which were fixed by the new diet.

‘‘I would love to share that with oth­ers so ev­ery­one can feel the same way,’’ Gross­man­nova said.

The cou­ple will be run­ning a raw food work­shop in Au­gust and a re­treat in Bali next year.
