Breakfast With Benefits

Breakfast bowls are so quick and easy to make and they can be made relatively cheap as you can mix and match with things you have at home. Here is a yummy, yummy, yuuuuuuummy breakfast bowl filled with good, nutritious ingredients that I love and eat before I hit the gym or slopes in the morning. l can guarantee that it will help kickstart your your day!!!

You don't need to use exactly these ingredients, let them be a guide to the overall experience but get creative with what's in your kitchen and cabinets :)

Recipe

Handful of Raw Cacao nibs / 2 tbs Raw cacao /  2 small organic, fair-trade bananas / Couple of Goji berries or other berries / Couple of Cashew nuts / 2 organic prunes/  1 tbs of Raw Green vegetable powder with chlorella / Couple of Sweet apricot kernels (can use almonds instead) / 2-3 leafs of Kale / Couple of drops of Peppermint oil / 1/2 tbs coconut sugar / Coconut shavings / 1/2 ts cinnamon /  1 cup of cold water / Blend everything in a high speed blender and pour in a bowl. Decorate with hemp seeds, granola, cacao nibs or what you may prefer. This recipe makes two servings. Serve chilled & enjoy!

Make sure to use RAW CACAO (naturally fermented) as cacao and processed chocolate bars are two different foods. Chocolate bars usually contain lots of processed sugars, additives and milk. Studies has shown that by adding dairy to the chocolate this actually blocks the absorption of antioxidants in chocolate. While processed chocolate may taste delicious, the benefits of cacao are only found in the raw form. Raw cacao can improve your memory, increase your bliss, reduce heart disease, shed fat, boost immunity, and create loads of energy! Read more on these blogs about the benefits to raw cacao and raw foods here

Food For Fall

Fall is a special time of the year. The trees start breaking down the chlorophyll in their leafs and we get to see what's hiding beneath; red, yellow, orange - the most beautiful color combinations to just fall in love to. Fall to me is also about cuddling up in front of the fire inside and making yummy food. Here is a simple recipe for a healthy lunch snack that is easy to make and taste so gooooood. 

- Rye crackers - avocado - chick peas - radish - sprouts - some seeds - fresh lemon - cucumber

Treat yourself with a hot milk tea made with cashews, sprinkled with turmeric, cinnamon and maple syrup.

Happy fall :)
