NUTRITION WITH INTUITION

Awesome Raw Breakfast!

July 28th, 2013 6 Comments

Warning – I have overused the word ‘awesome’ in this post – I just couldn’t help it – I’m just feeling ‘it’ today!! I hope a little rubs off on you if you’d like a little extra ‘yay’ in your day!  With love and winter sunshine… Kerry :)

This is one of my most regular breakfast requests from my body – change where your body requests – and enjoy!:

I squeeze the juice of one whole fabulous orange, then add around a heaped dessertspoon of chia seeds to it, stir and let that start soaking while I do the rest – if I have them (and I generally do) I add around a spoon full each of gogi berries and sultana’s to allow them to absorb in the orange juice a little bit as well.  Then I grab whatever I have – lately it’s been papaya, banana and pears.  I grate the pear and chop the others.  Every now and then I stir the chia/berry mix. I then add my fruit choices to the mix, and gently mix… I sing a little and – probably in a very uncool fashion – ooh and ahh over how magnificent the fruit is… nature’s magic is sooo simple for us to enjoy… And then if I’m really excited I do a little happy jig! (I told you it was possibly uncool – however – it is perfectly Divine to me!) Besides – I’m sure this amplifies the magic in all I’m about to take into my body!

Among’st many things, apparently,  I’m also known as a tahini head – I just love the stuff – and it brings awesome amounts of calcium into my body.. love, love, love it!  I’ve already decided that if some crazy thing happens – like – someone decides they’ve discovered tahini is actually no good for us – I will happily continue consuming this sesame seed nectar… my body says it is fabulous – and my body I trust! (I now know the difference between my wellness voice and the ‘other’ not-real-food voice… which rarely gets a say anymore as my body is stronger and better every time I make loving, genuine choices for it – cravings for crap are just about zero!!)  Anyway, more on that another time!  So, back to breakfast… I would say you could drizzle tahini on if you like – I somewhat gushingly pour it over the beautiful little mountain of life force giving fruit.  If I have fresh young coconut flesh I’ll add some of that – if not I generally have dry coconut in the fridge (keeping it fresh), and will sprinkle that over my concoction.

Finish with some proper yoghurt if you like (by that I  mean it is organic and full of gut fabulous bacteria – plain and simple – no added crap.  I make my own which I find so easy and somewhat better than anything else for me personally – because I’ve imbued it with a good culture and good energy that gives back to me 10 fold – I’ll teach this one in my ‘Nutrition with Intuition’ workshops).  I don’t use yoghurt every time, just when it ‘feels’ right for me to use.  This ‘feeling‘ food way does become easier with practise!

Mix it if you like, love it if you can, consume it with a little jig of joy! Delicious!

Note – my body even asks for this through most of Winter now!  Who would’ve thought! Not every day, but many, many of them – and I take myself out to the garden as often as possible to eat and connect further with nature’s awesomeness!

I checked out your awesome breakfast last week. I’ve eaten it about 4 times since then!! Love it!! Sheree :)

    Thanks Sheree! I’m so glad you’re trying these things out – thanks for letting me know – love your enthusiasm! :)

Since I started on your awesome breakfast recipe, I absolutely crave it just about every day! I’m always late in the mornings so I’ve been whipping it together with love and dashing off to work, taking it with me for morning tea. My lovely new car doesn’t have cup holders so I’ve had to get creative with my transport method. I strap the bad boy in for the wild ride to work! ha ha! :)

    Kerry

    Your so funny! Thanks for that giggle! Gotta keep the bad (although this ones really good!) boys safe and strapped in! :)

Morning Kerry. After seeing your post, I thought I would try it – always looking for new breaky ideas… so here’s my take on your yummy raw breakfast. I added nibbed almonds, sunflower seeds and pepita’s to the fruit salad – gave it a muesli texture. We love it! Denise A

    Sounds delicious. Just a nutty tip… be sure to add in enough omega 3′s into your mix somewhere through the day (perhaps a green smoothie with added flaxseed – both the flaxseeds and greens are a good dose of 3′s). Most nuts and seeds have much higher levels of omega 6′s (especially almonds which are about 2000 to 1 in omega 6) Too many 6′s are not good for our blood flow (can thicken it too much). Three’s have the opposite effect, so we need to consume them in balance where possible at a ratio of around 3:1 (ie: 6′s:3′s) I’ll be sure to write a full blog post on this asap! Loving the sound of the start of your day – thanks for sharing! In loving raw energy, Kerry! :)
