View Full Version : breakfast woes.
05-18-2008, 06:20 AM
I just can't seem to find anything to eat for breakfast. I don't want a GS every single day. I can never seem to find anything that "feels" like breakfast. What do you eat everyday? I need something SIMPLE, or something that can be prepared the night before. I'm usu very busy from 6:30-9 or 10 am, so it has to be E-A-S-Y or prepared already.

I just got a bag of Alissa's raw oats ~ haven't tried them yet but I guess you just soak for a little while. I'd add raisins, nuts, etc as desired- cinnamon too.
What about a nice fruit salad?

mm I dont usually eat anything until a bit later in the day
But how about making a batch of Grawnola of a sunday for the week ahead, make up some instant almond/cashew/hemp milk(or make with nuts every 3 days keep airtight).. voila!! Easy and quick
A quick fruit meal -- pinapple or oranges, something juicy
If I feel like anything I usually have a glass of juice or some berries with a chunk or raw cheeze once I get to the office.
Hope theres something there that helps!

How's about a nice big green salad? Brenda Cobb says that's her breakfast. Something I'd not thought of.

I make a really nice raw cereal, buy sprouting buckwheat then leaving it a few hours in some raw honey or agave and loads of cinamon, then drying in the drying thingy, and then I have it with almond milk and it really hits the spot, its sweet and crunchy when Im feeling like I need cereal for breakfast.

I like a cereal made from:
10 soaked almonds or 1/8 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup distilled water
1/2 apple with skin
1/2- 1 ripe banana
sprouts - optional
parsley - optional
Blend at high speed until creamy.
Pour over 2 tbsp golden flax seeds, ground to a power in a coffee grinder.
Mix well and eat immediately. Becomes real thick and gooey if left standing.
A scone and some hot tea? I've had that on occasion, and it certainly feels like "breakfast," especially fresh out of the dehydrator. I'm going to look for a recipe. BRB.
This is really tasty, by the way.

- Make some grawnola and dry it until it's REALLY crunchy even if it takes days!
Break it up and pour some nut milk over it...maybe add some sliced fruit. Yummy!
- Make cinnamon rolls (recipe posted in this forum and there's one in Alissa's book)
- As suggested, have raw oatmeal. We still roll and use the steel cut oat groats that probably aren't "technically" raw, but they work for us.
- If you don't already have it, grab a copy of Ani Phyo's book as she has a recipe for pancakes and syrup.
