Best sellers are its Mediterranean-inspired Medi-tate Bowl (cucumber, marinated onions, carrots, goat cheese, red peppers, grape tomatoes, sunflower seeds and spirulina pesto); and all-vegan Bhodi Tree Bowl, named after the tree Buddha sat under when he became enlightened. You'll be enlightened with its purple cabbage, celery, carrots, cucumber, pea chutes and raw almonds, all mixed together with miso ginger dressing.
Most everything is raw, local and as fresh as possible.
"I want people to have the freedom to create what their body needs," Racoma said. "It fulfills a void that's been missing here."
