After some trial and error I've come up with my favorite raw breakfast. Despite the fact that is does not include any pork products or come with piping hot coffee, I'll probably stick with it even (if and when) I give up on this raw food thing.
It tastes good, and it tastes like breakfast bc of the oats. Buckwheat and quinoa work, but they don't taste breakfasty. Y'know?
It's easy. No food processor.
So here's it is, if this even counts as recipe:
Raw Oats and Fruit
1/2 cup whole oat groats, soaked 12-24 hours
Soak a few days' worth of oats at a time and keep in the fridge
1 chopped banana
1 chopped pear (or other fruit)
handful of strawberries (or other berries)
1 Tbl. organic cinammon
1 Tbl. raw local honey (or raisins, especially if the berries aren't that sweet)
1/3 cup raw pumpkin seeds (or other raw nuts/seeds)
1 Tbl. ground flax seed
Mix it up, preferably allowing time to sit for an hour or so before eating. Remember to chew, chew, chew those grains and pumpkin seeds or they'll fire straight through your system intact.
