The Hungry Herbivore: 100% raw & vegan 02/25/14
Tried the Hungry Herbivore? They're totally raw and vegan!
Started by Brent and Amy, the Hungry Herbivore is a raw vegan business in Cape Town.
Here are a few words from the dynamic duo:
The Hungry Herbivore specialises in raw vegan foods, desserts and snacks. Some people might be put off by hearing vegan, but we want to encourage people of all diets to taste and see for themselves how delicious plant-based foods can be.
We’re known for our raw pizza and cheesecake. We produce our own unique flavoured coconut chips, kale chips, raw choc chip cookie and chocolate date balls among other snacks and treats. We also sell Phat Fox ice cream, RawC coconut water and almond milk, and create cakes and pizza for private orders.
We aren’t here to ‘convert’ anyone – although we would love to help people to include more plant-based, unprocessed foods into their diet.
Why did we start The Hungry Herbivore? When we came upon raw food it changed our lifestyle. We felt inspired and motivated to share this with everyone and felt that South African cafes and restaurants don’t cater for more ‘extreme’ eaters or those who have health conditions and can’t eat certain things. We strive to do just that.
Our current diets are making us sick at younger ages and we would like to show that there is an alternative to healing your body through food – and not medication. After all we all want to live long, healthy lives fulfilling our dreams.
