Raw Breakfast Recipe (Video)

Hi guys!  First of all I wanted to show you the logo that my "Aunt" Meghan made for the blog!  Isn't it amazing?


Second of all, I made a video today of my breakfast so I wanted to share that with you guys too!  I've never made a video of a recipe before, so I was kind of nervous.  Here it is:

Raw Apple Bananza:
Raw, Vegan, Gluten Free
  • 1 banana
  • 1 apple (washed)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (or to taste)
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
Directions:  Peel your banana and mash it into a bowl.  Chop your apple into bite-size pieces and place that on top of your banana.  Add cinnamon and mix.  Sprinkle with chia seeds and serve :)

I always think about raw veganism as "time consuming" and that it takes a lot of effort, but this breakfast was really easy!  Faster than my regular breakfast of oatmeal or a parfait.  It was surprisingly filling, too (more filling than cereal!)  So easy and tasty. 

For lunch, I had a raw kale salad that I threw together.  It was really delicious.

It included:
  • 1 handful of kale
  • 1/4 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/4 cup chopped jicama
  • 1/8th orange
  • 1/8th lemon
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar 
  • 2 Tbsp cashew "cheese
For the cashew cheese, I combined soaked cashews, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, garlic, water, salt and pepper and blended until creamy.

And used that as my dressing for my salad:

Loved it.  The cashew cheese dressing didn't really taste like cheese, but it was very good on this salad, especially with the acidity for the vinegar and juices.

Then I started feeling faint.  I couldn't stand up straight and the room started spinning.  I felt kind of sick to my stomach and I knew that I needed some protein.  Alex and I decided to walk over to the coffee shop across the street for a good, protein packed meal.  I ordered a sandwich with tofu (for protein) and hummus (for more protein) with a side of more tofu and a salad.  

After that, I had a mug of kashi + unsweetened soy milk + chia seeds for even more protein.  I feel much better now.  I wasn't hungry before the sandwich, but as I said, I felt like I was going to pass out.  That worried me because I am planning on running this afternoon and I need to have energy while I run.  I do feel much better after that meal, so I suppose I was seriously lacking protein.  I don't know if I'll try raw veganism again because it was kind of scary for me to feel so weak when I am just sitting down.  There will definitely be days that I do eat raw meals, but it's not likely that I will only eat raw meals for an entire day.

Have you ever tried to be raw vegan?  What was your experience?

Have a good day!  I hope you enjoyed my video!
