Morning kickoff

I've been eating raw food now for over a year and I feel much better then ever before! I started my experiments with delicious desserts and was instantly hooked! They are just so much lighter, richer in taste and easier to digest than any baked desserts. After these great experiences I started to do some raw breakfasts and lunches and now I just can't think life without any raw food anymore :) Slowly I've got Wolfi to like these things also and now we have almost every morning raw smoothies and porridge. On my own I eat almost 80% raw food and it really fits me. I feel much more energetic and somehow happier/positive. No more downs from refined ingredients like white sugar and flour and other nonsense.
Here is the breakfast we had on friday before our Midsummer trip. Really delicious and full of energy, vitamins and other important stuff! I recommend to test :)

Nectarine smoothie
for two
  • 3 nectarines
  • 1 banana
  • 2 handfuls of spinach
  • 1 handful of Jiaogulan leafs or other desired greens
  • 2 stevia leafs or other sweetener
  • 1 tbsp tocotrienols (rice bran) powder
  • 2 tsp non-GMO soy lecithin powder
  • 2 tsp maca powder
  • 1 tsp MSM
  • veggie milk (I used oat)
Put all ingredients to a mixer and mix high until very smooth. Add milk so much that the smoothie is nicely drinkable.
This smoothie will be very delicious also without these special powders, but they bring more vitamins etc. and make it very creamy.

Rhubarb oatmeal
for two
  • 10 sundried dates
  • 2 dl raw oatmeal
  • 3-4 dl water
  • 0.5 dl sesame seeds
  • 1 dl water
  • 100g rhubarb
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • (1 tbsp lucuma powder)
Put dates, oatmeal and water to a mixer and let soak overnight. Soak sesame seeds in a separate dish overnight. In the morning rinse sesame seeds well and put them with the rest of the ingredient to the mixer and mix high until very smooth. Add sweetener if desired and enjoy like this or for example with strawberries.

Because of the oxalic acid in rhubarb, one should eat calsium rich food at the same time, that's why I put so much sesame seeds into this oatmeal. You can also omit the seeds, but then I recommend to have for example some calsium enriched soy or oat milk.
