Our physical therapist inspired us with this combination of nuts and seeds in-the-raw and it has morphed over the years to include Mila and other super foods. He preaches the importance of breakfast as the biggest meal of the day following the motto “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.” We invite you to Super-Charge your life with this power breakfast which will leave you feeling like royalty. Feel free to make your own rendition based on the super foods and fruits that you love.
Basic Nut/Seed Mixture
2 cups organic raw pumpkin seeds
2 cups organic raw walnuts
2 cups organic raw almonds
2 cups organic raw white sesame seeds
2 cups organic hemp seeds
Mix together in a bowl and store in a glass container in your freezer. (This takes a little time and effort in the beginning to get started, but this mix will last for a long time.)
2 tablespoons dried organic coconut
and /or 3 tablespoons organic rolled oats, uncooked
1 tablespoon goji berries(optional)
1/2 to 1 scoop Mila or Chia
*almond milk (see recipe as fresh is best, but purchased will do)
*fruit of choice
Place about 1/3 cup of nut/seed mix in a bowl. Add coconut AND/OR oats and gojis. Remember that gojis will change the taste significantly. Some days we are in the mood for them (particularly with berries on top) and some days we aren’t. Add Mila and almond milk. Then top with fruit. Enjoy.
*We particularly love a medley of berries on the cereal as they are lower in sugar than some of the other fruits. In the fall, apples add pizzazz. Spring inches us into strawberry season. Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and peaches are featured in the summer. Bananas, pears, mango, and acai are great in the winter even though they have more sugar. Feel free to mix and match and to be creative. Even though you can buy just about any fruit any time of the year, try going with the flow of the seasons.
