The Sprout (Mt. Pleasant)

Vegan-raw. Alive in my mouth! I have a full respect and appreciation for this stuff, believing that I would probably be healthier eating a raw vegan diet. The Sprout, in Mt. Pleasant, where Ecco Fitness is, is the only place that I know of in Charleston serving mostly raw vegan cuisine. The restaurant looks more like a grab and go type of place, with various shakes and pre-made meals. Well, how would you need to sit and wait for your meal, when it doesn't have to be cooked. I had The Sprout Burger (served on a sprouted Ezekiel bun with fresh greens, tomato, onion, and sprouts) with an addition of Raw Cashew Cheese)
I was big time hungry and doubted that I would be full after eating these vegetables. But I was so wrong! It was hardy and filling. And the vegetables made me feel so good...physically. Was it power of suggestion? But look at the colors in this burger! How could it NOT be good?
The bad: My body is addicted to junk right now. Yes, butters, oils, fries, beef, diet coke, and I feel toxic. So, my cravings at the time were not so raw-vegetable-ly.
The good: The service was wonderful! The people there were very knowledgeable and exceptionally friendly. The restaurant not only has food and shakes, it has detox programs. And, I honestly felt fantastic after eating the burger.
In Conclusion: Don't knock it until you try it. I would love to try more on their menu....and will do that....as I detox. Thank you, Sprout!
