My favorite Raw Food Diet Recipes!
Raw Food Diet recipes are so much more than having a salad or veggies... For breakfast, of course, fruit, smoothies and shakes are always great, but here's a few more ways to have a fabulous first meal of the day...
Breakfast Energy Mix
A homemade energy mix made with nuts and/or soaked grains is a great way to start the day.
3/4 cup raw nuts
about 10 dates, soaked and pitted
2 tbsp coconut oil
Fresh fruit (berries, banana or mango works well)
1 tbsp fresh raw grated coconut (optional)
Raw nut milk, to taste
Using a food processor, process the nuts and dates and coconut oil together until nuts are almost finely ground. Combine in a bowl with fresh fruit and grated coconut. Top with nut milk, to taste.
This raw foods energy mix is incredibly delicious...
This simple recipe for raw oatmeal gives a solid basis for the day.
Soaking the oats the night before will make them much softer and easier to blend and chew. Follow this raw oatmeal recipe or top with any fruits, nuts and spices you love and have at home.
1 cup cut oats (or substitute oat groats)
4 dates (or soaked figs or apricots)
2 cups water
1 red apple, chopped
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg, clove or allspice
1 tablespoon honey
Personnally, I most enjoy a hearty salad for lunch... together with crackers I prepare in the food dehydrator.
So here are a few examples
Lettuce, sunflower sprouts, strawberries, and balsamic vinegar - mix it all together. Enjoy!
My basic cracker and 'bread' recipe... is really simple.
Mix it all in the blender and pour on dehydrator pan (use baking paper)
'Bake' until dry to the touch... flip... and dry more until crisp. Voila!
This is the basic recipe... play around with the ingredients, add spices, make them sweet or salty... your creation!
Avocado spread comes to mind...
Mix in blender...
Together with the 'bread' (see above) - delightful!
Beets - Great Taste and Color
Mix in blender... and eat!
