I have been eating this as my first meal of the day and it has left me energized as well as sated. It is low in protein, but I make up for it later in the day. If you have seen my post from the "paleo page", I am currently trying to eat one meal a day raw. I will soon write a post about my experience and why I think we need to eat cooked foods sometimes and meat. It is hard to get an adequate vegetable protein source when eating 100% raw. Vegetarians can get them from dairy products or legumes and wheat, but I don't eat those things. So unless I eat my cooked meat, I just can't meet my daily requirements and end up feeling sluggish at home and at the gym. Anyways, for a yummy snack, breakfast, or if you are just plain hungry, here is a super easy recipe!
- 1/4 cup of coconut milk (either raw from a coconut, if you are that lucky, I am jealous!) or from a can [I recommend Native Forest unsweetened organic version]
-1/4 cup unsweetened soy milk ( I used EdenFoods brand)
-1/2 cup of fresh blueberries
-1 cup of fresh strawberries
-1/2 cup raw cacao nibs (I like the Superfoods brand. The nibs also provide a good dosage of protein from a non-animal source)
-1 tbsp cinnamon
1. Get the appropriate amount of coconut milk out of the can and whip it in a small bowl with a spoon.
2. After whipped well, add all the rest of the ingredients, mix thoroughly, and enjoy!!!!!!
3. So easy and so delicious. Simple way to get refueled adequately.
