This is not what I would have considered a great breakfast a few years ago, but it truly is a fantastic way to start the day. You can make this recipe and share half with someone, or put half in a container for your breakfast tomorrow. Or, if you have a hectic day ahead, you can eat the whole bowl yourself! Like my mentor, Lee Haney says, eat for what you are going to do, not for what you have done.
- 2 Tbl chia seeds
- 1 Tbl goji berries
Add a little spring water to cover. The seeds will absorb the water and become more gelatinous while you add the other ingredients.
- 2 Tbl hemp hearts/seeds
- 1 Tbl Maca powder
- 1 Tbl cacao powder
- 1 Tbl cacao nibs
- ±1/3 – 1 cup kefir
- 1/3 cup chopped celery
- 2 Tbl coconut
- coconut oil
- fresh ginger, chopped
That is the basic, then add any or all of the following that you happen to have on hand, as much organic as possible. I keep a basket in the pantry with my “superfood” breakfast ingredients to make it easy. Then I have “spice cupboard” additions, refrigerator additions and freezer additions.
- ±1 Tbl frozen blueberries
- ½ frozen bananas, chopped small
- sunflower seeds
- pumpkin seeds
- pecans, brazil nuts, almonds, walnuts, preferably soaked and chopped
- twist of Himalayan crystal salt
- cayenne pepper
- fresh turmeric chopped
- fresh jalapeños chopped
- cilantro chopped
- cucumber chopped
- apple chopped
- pineapple chopped
- fresh lemon with some of the rind, no seeds
- any other dried or fresh fruit you have
I have given measurements as a guideline, but you can vary the quantities according to your taste, or leave some out. If it seems too dry, add more kefir or water. Use whatever you have and whatever you like from the list. There is a lot of room for variety. Use any nuts, seeds, fruits you have available. I also purposely limit the amount of fruit and LOVE having the celery for the crunch, goodness and detox benefits!
This is fast, easy, delicious and nutritious! I usually make 6 or 7 x 200 g servings. I put them in individual containers in the refrigerator and have a wonderful fast food breakfast for a couple of days!
So far my husband, 2 sons, one daughter-in-law and a few special friends have enjoyed my specialty breakfast. The rest of the family isn’t quite so adventurous!
