Quinoa Breakfast – Yumm!

This is another one of my vegan favorite breakfasts!

1/3 cup white quinoa – well rinsed

1 cup pure water

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla

dash of salt

1 tablespoon shredded coconut

1 tablespoon raisins

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1/2 cup home made almond milk

Put water on to heat in 2 qt. sauce pan. Add cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Rinse quinoa while water is heating. Add quinoa to boiling water and simmer for 20 minutes. Add coconut, coconut oil and raisins 5 minutes before the water is absorbed. Serve with raw almond milk. Tastes like heaven!

Quinoa is an alkaline grain, packs 8 grams of protein in 1/3 cup and filled with potassium, magnesium, Iron and B6. What a healthy way to start your day. Kids love it too!

Great Raw Breakfast

During a recent raw cleanse I created this fantastic breakfast.

Coarsely shred one Gala apple

Finely shred 1/4 red beet and 1/2″ fresh ginger root

Add 5-6 fresh raspberries and mash all together until fully mixed.

The apple and beet are great for liver and the ginger helps the digestive process and the raspberries blend the flavors and mask the beet completely. It is a divine raw breakfast that is delicious as well as satisfying! Give it a try soon!
