Why raw treats instead of just typical baked vegan?
Cooking plant based ingredients destroys the vital and essential nutrients that these fruits, vegetables, and nuts possess. It has been our passion and our goal is to maintain the necessary enzymes, vitamins, and minerals in our treats, in order to nourish our body. But it is not as easy as simply "not cooking" and eating everything raw. To this end, we put in the work so that all that raw goodness is in each treat.
We enjoy the process of soaking raw nuts for hours to activate their enzymes, making the protein more readily available for absorption and to reach their creamiest texture. As our commitment to quality continues, we mindfully sprout buckwheat groats for 2 days to activate their enzymes making them easier to digest and finally dehydrating them for hours to obtain that perfect level of crunchiness. These processes exemplify the integrity we have towards our craft. They are just some of the ways that we have fully devoted ourselves to perfect the health benefits, flavors, textures, and presentation of our Rawsome Treats.
Like you, we love to eat delicious food and nourish our body at the same time.
Thank you for letting us share our goodness with you!
Watt Sriboonruang, a founder and chef of Rawsome Treats.
Watt is a health nut, Muay Thai contender and talented cook who thrives on plant-based lifestyle. She learned firsthand the power of raw plant-based diet while training for one of her amateur Muay Thai fights in 2012. Not only did Watt double her energy through this regimen, she was also able to remain satiated and healthy while the pounds melted off effortlessly-enough for her to compete in a lower weight division. Since then she has been following a raw plant-based diet and life style, and encouraging people around her to stay healthy through the same life style.
The following year, in late 2013, Watt founded Rawsome Treats, a raw dessert boutique based in New York City. While her original inspiration was to satisfy her own sweet tooth without hindering athletic performance or weight loss, her exquisite desserts have since developed an adamant following among professional fighters and competitive athletes, health-conscious individuals, and most importantly, food enthusiasts in general. She is passionate about showing the world that indulgence doesn't always equal decadence and guilt; it can be healthy and delectable at the same time.
