Grapefruit keeps your immune system healthy, aids in digestion, detoxifies the liver and aids in weight loss.

Lavender, both a flower and an herb, is one of the most healing plants our planet has to offer. Used for physical and emotional pain, it can helps with conditions such as migraines and depression.
Last but not least, carrots-the key ingredient to this recipe. They keep this cake light and moist while adding a large amount of soluble fiber. A key factor for healthy digestion and lowering blood pressure. We can also rely on carrots, thanks to beta-carotene, to help us improve our vision. Yes, the myths are true.
Although chocolate tends to be a staple in raw desserts, it's always good to go out of your comfort zone.
