Raw Breakfast Foods: A Happy Introduction

Raw “Oatmeal”

1 cup of raw cashews soaked for at least a day (rinse every night if you are going to do it for more than one)

1 cup of wheat berries soaked for at least 2 days (again, rinse them every night)

1/4 cup of agave nectar

2 teaspoons of vanilla

I topped mine with bananas and cinnamon, but I’m sure it would taste great with whatever you usually put in your oatmeal (dried fruit, apples, etc.)

It has the consistency of oatmeal because of the wheat berries, but it tastes a lot sweeter.

Now, WHEAT BERRIES, let me b r e a k i t d o w n for you.

“Wheat berries are an excellent source of dietary fiber and there are numerous nutrients provided such as folic acid, protein, B-complex vitamins and vitamin E. The wheatgrass acts as a cleanser and is rich in Vit.A,B, C and E along with other minerals. It is supposed to have anti-aging capabilities. The grass is rich in chlorophyll (obviously) and hence works directly on the liver and removes toxins.”

Now you ask: “Where the f$%@k can I get these?”

Any natural market will have them in bulk or in the grains section. They’re a reddish brown color when raw, and they sort of look like rice.

Whoever said vegans didn’t get enough protein? Pffffft.
