Packing healthy lunches can be a challenge regardless of dietary restrictions, but a raw diet actually lends itself well to lunchtime. Start with the sides, which can be anything from organic baby carrots to dehydrated kale chips. For the drink, stop by Raw Juce in Boca Raton, which cold-presses juices daily with varieties such as Berry Peary Chia, Un-Beet-Able and Carrot Cake, all with a 72-hour shelf life. For the main course, we suggest this mock tuna salad recipe that will please even the pickiest eaters.
