I was enjoying an excellent, organic, long black at my new favourite cafe last weekend. It's called 'The Joyful Bellys' and you can read about it here.

Anyway, as I sipped and chatted, Barry the Barista mentioned the nearby 'Raw Wholefoods'. 'It'll change your life', he said. So I took myself off for a look.

Raw has opened up at shop 4, 70 Ocean Street in Victor Harbor. They say they sell affordable nuts, dried fruit, grains, seeds, flours, gluten free, and organic produce. But that's something of an understatement!

Shop owners, Glenn and Fran, welcomed me as I stepped inside their shop, and told me not to miss 'the room at the back'. Not wanting to miss out on a single thing I headed straight there.

Here I found organic seeds and flakes that I didn't even know existed. What's an Amarath flake?

I wandered through the four rooms feeling as though I were in an Aladin's cave of raw food.

Every kind of organic rice variety was there, along with flours, bread mixes, syrups, local honey, dried fruit and of course Quinoa. I saw muffin mix, carrot cake mix, mud cake mix and even a red velvet cake mix. There were kernels, puffs, no-sugar confectionary and soapberries.

There were even recipes and explanations dotted along the walls.

Most of these goodies were housed in extensive cabinetry, built from scratch by Glenn.
