View Full Version : Breakfast Ideas?
02-24-2005, 10:17 AM
I'm looking for any breakfast ideas that anyone has. I don't have a dehydrator yet (second week of raw now), and I haven't found a lot of recipes for breakfast.

Thanks, Heather! I'll have to try some! I've been having the banana-papaya pudding ... not necessarily "breakfast", but that's just a technicality. :)

Smoothies here, too. :) Rarely I'll just have whole, un-smoothified fruit.

I've read about people making a porridge or meusli sort of breakfast. I'm not sure but I think you can soak oat groats and add like raisins, shredded apple, stuff like that. I think it sounds like a nice substitute for oatmeal or cereal type of breakfast.

Thanks, Zoetastic! That sounds pretty good, too!

I do 'cereal'
sliced strawberries & sliced banana (any fruit will work)
with almond milk (cashew milk is also really good, no straining required)

I am a smoothie kinda gal too! There are so many combinations of fruits and nuts for smoothies that each morning I can have something a bit different. My favorite is 1 or 2 bananas, frozen berries or other fruit (blueberries, strawberries, mango, cherries), cinnamon, and some ground flax or walnuts. If I want a more filling breakfast I add some soaked oat groats (maybe a few tablespoons full) and I'm good until lunch! Also, adding a date or two makes the smoothie sweeter and a bit more thick, and yummy too! Yes, I could live on smoothies!

Try sluggin' down some coconut milk. It's so yummy! I didn't like it at first but now I can't get enough. Alot of the time I will just drink the coconut water by itself.

Carolyn, I usually have a fruit smoothie. Sometimes I make almond milk, and throw in a banana. Other times, orange juice and parsley!
Hope this helps, Tracy

fruit or fruit juice...lots of it. This morning I had a quart of orange juice (well, royal mandarins to be exact) for breakfast. Last night, I had a quart of orange juice for Dinner and an apple for Dessert. I have taken to doing that alot these days. Just juicing a large quantity of oj and having that as a meal, maybe with a piece of fruit or marinated kale too (ok, probably not THAT for breakfast). We have these yummy royal mandarins at our co-op...been getting them about a month or so now. I have been buying a 32 pound box every week. You open the fridge and it is just a see of orange, with a dark leafy green corner :)

I have fruit 'cereal' every day: chopped apple; sliced banana; handful of walnuts; handful of raisins; handful of grapes. I usually eat it just like that, but some days I will add almond milk and/or a handful of raw quick oats.

The best thing to eat in the mornings is food which is easily digested because your bosy remains in the elimination phase of its body rythem cycle until midday. Fruits are largely pre-digested in that they have a high water content, lots of enzymes, free amino acids etc. Fruit (with the exception of bananas) remains in the stomach for only half an hour before it is passed onto the intestines for absorption and assimilation.
There is really no need for recipes when it comes to fruit, they are nature's candy and can be eaten after a wash.

Peter I like you quote! We should consider that one with every decission we make!
I like to take my orange juicer to work and make fresh orange juice whenever I feel like I wnt something.
Or a green drink, kale, apples, oranges, ginger, dandelions,
or this apple carrot ginger juice.
Most of the time I start the day with water and than later something like a juice.

Oh I usually eat fresh fruit for breakfast. Whatever I have on hand.
My personally favorite is mango's. Also like a papaya with fresh lime
juice squirted on top. Lately the spanish manderine oranges are plentiful at our house. We love these, yumm.
If I want to go to more trouble I have either a smoothie or fresh made
juice in my juicer. I have been partial to making a cucumber, apple,
celery and ginger combo. I've been making a cacao and young coconut
drink a lot lately too. The banana papaya pudding is nice for breakfast.
If I am really hungry I will have banana, honey, almond butter on a flax seed cracker. I would like to make a raw granola sometime with almond milk.
That sounds nice for something heavier or a brunch thing.
