Beginner Raw Food Recipes – Suggestions To Make Your Journey Simpler
3 delicious and energizing raw food recipes for breakfast
Oats are a big part of the raw diet, sometimes called raw vegetarian or raw. They’re high in the soluble fiber beta-glucan, which means they may improve your blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol, and benefit your heart and gut health. They are also a popular addition to this type of diet because they are filling. Just remember, for optimal digestion and nutrient absorption, they need to be soaked before consumption.
2-1/2 cups gluten-free old-fashioned oats
2 cups of filtered water
1/2 cup raw almonds, soaked (see recipe below)
1 medium green apple with skin
2 medium bananas (the riper the banana, the sweeter the taste)
The night before, soak the almonds in a jar with enough water to cover them. Put in the refrigerator. When you’re ready to make the oatmeal, drain and rinse the almonds and set them aside. Add all the ingredients to your blender. Cover it and stir at high speed until you get the smoothness and colored cream you want. About a minute should be enough. Any decent quality blender will create a creamy texture. Top with fresh berries, a few drops of raw honey, or more chopped bananas and apples. Store in the refrigerator.
Fresh fruit smoothie:
Not all smoothies can be considered raw, so be careful about the ingredients you choose. If you stick to whole, uncooked foods in their natural state, you should be fine. Remember to avoid heated foods as well.
1-1/2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup ice
1 date with a pit removed
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/4 tablespoon of orange peel
1 cup fresh spinach, tightly packed
1-1/2 cups fresh mango, cut into chunks
Add all ingredients except spinach and mango (orange juice, almond milk, ice, Borong Kurma, vanilla and orange peel) to a blender. Pulse or blend until well combined (you don’t need to reach a full, creamy consistency yet). Next, add the spinach and toss well to combine. Achieve desired softness. Don’t worry if it takes a few minutes. Saving the mango for last means it’s in the blender for the least amount of time and prevents it from getting too hot. You can add extra ice at the end. You can eat the smoothie immediately or if it is too hot, cool it in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Vanilla coconut yogurt:
Another popular raw food staple is yogurt. The types you may be used to seeing in the store are not raw because they are pasteurized. Therefore, to consume yogurt in this diet, it must be mixed with raw milk or completely different bases such as coconut meat or macadamia nuts. While it’s delicious plain, try layering it into savory parfaits with raw granola and fresh or dried fruit.
2 cups of coconut meat
1/2 cup of coconut water
2 tablespoons of maple syrup
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1-2 teaspoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed (to taste)
Put all the ingredients in your blender. Cover it and stir for about 2 to 3 minutes at high speed until it becomes uniform and creamy.
Top with fresh fruit of your choice or raw coconut granola.
