Quick Oatmeal for breakfast may seem like a healthy option, compared to a fast-food breakfast sandwich it may be. However, it’s overprocessed, probably GMO if you don’t buy organic and poor in nutrient density, not to mention it’s not the best for the gut.
A blend of nuts and seeds is a far better option. You can even use it as a raw granola mix to add to coconut or sheep’s yogurt, on top of applesauce or sprinkled onto a smoothie bowl.
- 1/4 cup Pecans
- 1/4 cup almonds
- 1/4 cup cashews
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 cup flax seeds
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup hemp hearts
- 1/4 cup shredded organic coconut
- Pulse well in a food processor or blender – pecans, almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds
- In a coffee grinder finely grind flax seeds
- Combine the ground nuts and feeds with flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp hearts and shredded coconut
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
- 1/4 cup of NutMeal Blend
- 1/2 cup Nut milk
- 2 tbsp of goji berries
- 1/2 banana
- 3 brazil nuts
- 2 raw egg yolks
- 2 tsp maple syrup
- Pour – to your liking – homemade almond or cashew milk on top of your nutmeal. Give it a few minutes for it to thicken up.
- Top off with fruit and nuts
- For some added protein and sweetness I made “kogel mogel” which is an eastern European dessert of raw egg yolk and sugar. I used 2 free run grass-fed egg yolks and 2 tsp of maple syrup. Whisk well until it becomes cream like. Pour on top and mix everything together.
