chopped
¼ inch piece of ginger, minced
¼ cup lemon juice
¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Toppings: (Your choice) cacao nibs, goji berries, coconut flakes, raisins, hemp seeds, etc.

Optional Sauce:

1 tablespoon coconut cream
½ tablespoon flax oil

Make the topping by blending coconut cream concentrate, flax oil, agave and chocolate (if desired) until smooth and creamy. Add a small amount of water if needed to make it pourable. Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine.

    I had a Delicious Chocolate Dream Smoothie. You shared this smoothie recipe in one of your videos and I have enjoyed it several times since then. I originally made it following the recipe adding 1/4 cup agave but I made it one time and forgot the agave and couldn’t taste the difference. So now I omit the agave from the recipe.
    Thanks for sharing this breakfast idea. It sounds like one my kids might actually go for.

  2. Great breakfast idea for my ladies over 50 conference I am looking to have here in CO, between Boulder-Denver in the dream stage right now for 2010. You know how gorgeous is here. I don’t have my new domain for these ladies and health/wellness is one topic I will share with them.

    I need to find the smoothie recipe mentioned here too although I can come up with a million and one.

  3. Just saw Dr. Rita’s book and may be an addition to my ladies over 50 conference when I talk about breakfast meals.

  4. Liliane says:

    I had quinoa (cooked) with a bit of maple syrup and banana slices. Very yummy. I love ginger, so I try this yummy cereal recipe. Thanks again for all the great recipes.

  5. Nurse Lolita says:

    I will have a green smoothie but sometimes I like an adaptation I have made form Carol Alt’s Raw 50. Her creamy muesli recipe I have changed some. Her version doesn’t have celery and is pureed in food processor. I like it crunchy and chunky.She also adds oats and since I am gluten free I rarely eat them even if they are labeled gluten free.

    Lolita’s Waldorf Muesli

    1 apple shredded
    1 avocado
    fresh orange juice
    handful of pecans chopped and raisins
    1 stalk celery chopped

    Mix the orange juice with the apples. Cream the avocado, add the apples, celery, raisins and pecans. Enjoy!

  6. AK says:

    Thanks for the video but you are shaking the camera too much.
    Its almost difficult to see the important closeups!

  7. JCDanis says:

    I had a yummy green smoothie with a bit of kale, collard, spinach and yellow wood sorrel straight from the garden with flax seed, frozen mixed berries, mango, spirulina and carob. I haven’t had a green smoothie in awhile and this one hit the spot!

  8. LuAnn Agustin says:

    Hi guys!
    I had a delicious Green Smoothie of baby spinach from my garden with a banana, strawberries from my garden and blueberries… mmm…

  9. Victoria says:

    This information and recipes are all well and good..but, I want to know and see what YOU eat on a daily basis. Not what would be good in theory, to make for someone who isn’t a raw foodist. I always notice Kevin saying “well, we wouldn’t eat this” and I think it’s a bit misleading. I look to this show for a bit of guidance and information…do you two really actually eat that much poorly combined food? The fruit and the fat together doesn’t cause you digestion distress? Amazing if it doesn’t, I wish it didn’t to me.
    Regardless, your doing amazing work so thank you.

  10. mary says:

    I had a delicious raw chocolate cheesecake tartlet with cashew cream on a pecan/ coconut crust:) It was terrific and totally raw — but there was a little agave in the cream:P Gotta eat it all up and switch to lucuma or something else:)

  11. Rene Oswald says:

    That looked yummy! I have a Breakfast Pudding recipe on my website that’s made with buckwheat groats. It’s one of my favorites. It’s at http://www.reneoswald.com/book.html and is found on page 14 of the free Program Introduction Guide. Enjoy!

  12. Joyce says:

    I had a green smoothie: strawberries, banana, romaine – with acerola cherry powder, Green Vibrance and a combination of 10 medicinal mushrooms – all blended with 8 oz of filtered water.

  13. George says:

    Apples are very high in fructose – the main cause of insulin resistance which is linked to heart disease.

  14. Tara Burner says:

    looks yummmy
    and I didn’t ‘eat’ this morning or today for that matter (fasting) but did have some fresh squeezed OJ

  15. Tara Burner says:

    Just bought Dr Ritamarie’s book from your link so once I’m off fast I’ll try some of these yummy breakfasts out since I’m “bad” when it comes to remembering to eat breakfast!

  16. Shannon says:

    bananas, raw cacao, hemp seeds, ice, water, blend, guzzle. my breakfast every morning. 🙂

  17. Sharon says:

    I had about two cups of blackberries and an hour later a smoothie with frozen banana and strawberries and scoop of Sun Warrior protein powder.

  18. DebB says:

    I had my standard fare ~ a green smoothie. I love adding a frozen banana and frozen blueberries when it’s almost done. I like mine icy cold!

    Debbie *Ü*

  19. Ann Marie says:

    First I juiced an apple and 2 carrots, put the juice in the blender, added an avocado and some cilantro and blended, yummmmy!

  20. Kaylani says:

    I had a green smoothie. Pineapple chunks, strawberries, goji berries and kale. Nice and refreshing!

  21. leeleelocs says:

    I eat a fruit mix with banana, strawberrys, blue berry. topped with nuts such as almonds or macadamons what ever I have,

  22. MsSheilaC says:

    I make my husband and I a porridge type concoction of;

    chia seeds
    sprouted flax seeds
    goji berries
    vanilla powder
    maca powder
    lucuma powder
    bee pollen
    honey

    add water and stir to incorporate all ingredients. Let sit for 5-10 minutes for the chia and flax to swell
    Enjoy!

  23. Sue H. says:

    I had a yummy green smoothie with bananas, strawberries, and chard (and water).
    Sue

  24. carol says:

    I can hardly wait to try this yummy recipe. I had a smoothie consisting of 2 bananas, 1/2 cantalope, 1 apple, 1/4 cup hydrated chia seeds, about 1 1/2 cups water, 2 oz hydrated calcium bentonite clay. The clay keeps the parasites moving through our system as well as bad bacteria, etc.
    Thanks For Sharing, Love your site!

  25. Sophia says:

    Kevin! I am a huge fan, and a runner, but lately I am not sure what to eat for breakfast for optimum energy/performance. I tried a smoothie (rice milk, banana, mango,vegan protein powder), but that doesn’t work too well, plus I tried eggs but got a similar result. Maybe I should be looking for something more complete like the recipe you made today but w/ more protein?

  26. Vicky says:

    I also had a green smoothie with blackberries, two small bananas and some spinach. Sometimes I put flax seed powder in too, but not today. The apple ginger recipe looks great and easy, I’ll have to try that when I want something different!

  27. Sara says:

    Green smoothie!! We’re in the midst of a green smoothie challenge… http://www.happyfoody.com

  28. Suze says:

    Green juice with baby spinach, chinese greens, lemongrass and parsley from my garden, kiwi and apples and bak choy. . really good.

  29. Allison says:

    I need ideas for nonfruit breakfasts.

  30. bryan says:

    I usually do not eat breakfast I have read that it’s better to wait until about 10:ooam or if you’ve been pretty physically active to promote better digestion. I’m just curious if that’s why you haven’t eaten anything in this video? Also I’m curious if Ann Marie has had any issues w/ candida? I was just wondering, because I know that males tend to stress more than females which could cause excess acid which would provide fertile grounds for candida. I know there are many pontential causes for candida, just curious.

  31. Elaine says:

    My breakfast…..juiced celery, kale, romaine, bean sprouts, apple, a few grapes and a nub of ginger to which I added a tsp of Sulfurzyme, a tsp of ReVitaPhi, and a scoop of Power Meal! Shook it up real good and enjoyed!! Our VitaMix died (oh, dear!!!) so I’ll juice until the new machine gets here.
    Thanks for another great show!

  32. Taylor says:

    I just discovered your website today and I don’t even know how many videos I have watched already!
    I found you by looking for an avocado smoothie recipe and found so much more!
    I ended up making my own that was VERY tasty!

    Here was my breakfast:
    1 Avocado
    1 Mango
    1 lemon
    1/2 apple
    1/4 cucumber
    aprox. 1 Tbsp flax seeds
    and
    water!

    blended and delicious! Inspired by you!

    question, it may be too late for this but where can I buy one of those “nutrition facts” tee shirts?

  33. Genevieve says:

    Since I learned from you about making chia porridge, that is mostly what I have been having for breakfast. This morning I added ground flax, shelled hemp seeds, ground psyllium, blueberies, strawberries, an apricot and a fig, and coconut milk. It was wonderful!

  34. Dave says:

    Like apparently a lot of other people also did, I had a green smoothie. I recently picked up collard greens at the store (a ravishingly healthy bunch as big as your leg!) and I juiced most of it along with a cucumber and some cilantro. I use that juice as a base for smoothies, but not too much. Only about 1/4 cup at a time. That much is nice, too much of it is overpowering… To that juice I added hemp milk, some bee pollen (which I may not buy again, based on what I’ve learned recently here…), Ruth’s Raw Hemp protein powder with Maca, frozen local blueberries and two ripe bananas. Then I blended and enjoyed… I also had some raw grains with hemp milk, a date, and local pecans (I live in Georgia) chopped in. Yum!

  35. elisabeth says:

    Mine was simple – a beautiful local apple, sliced & a 1/2 cup of “trail mix”:

    pecans
    cacao
    goji
    raisins
    pepitas

  36. a green smoothie of kale, apple, watermelon, zucchini, cucumber, Green Vibrance, Calm (calcium magnesium) 10 drops cell food; then corn flakes with watermelon juice instead of milk. Usually I only have the smoothie, but lately I have been hungry (wonder why). Hope I don’t gain my weight back.

  37. Dorothy Osler says:

    Kevin, I tried to check into the site for your Dr Edward Group talk about candida etc.
    I can not access this site.
    Hopefully you can rectify it before the 24hrs is up
    I am interested in listening to him

  38. RebeccaG says:

    I had a green smoothie with a banana, three small locally grown yellow plums and two handfuls of greens from my garden with about a cup of water to blend. I also have bee pollen every morning. It was a bit on the sour side, but some days it is nice to have a sour green smoothie 🙂 Cheers!

  39. Tiff says:

    I had brown rice and vegan yam & groundnut stew for breakfast (leftovers from dinner)

  40. Laurel says:

    For breakfast I had Kaia foods Buckwheat Raisin Cinnamon Crunchies with vanilla brazil nut milk and a peach. So good <3

  41. Sharon says:

    lots of chopped nectarines from my tree, soaked almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and walnuts all stirred together into a chunky medley. I wish I had some blueberries, but they are $5 for a couple of spoonfuls. 🙁

  42. Anthony Triano says:

    Egg salad on whole wheat toast
    blueberry smoothe

  43. Deanna says:

    I had celery sticks with raw almond butter and some sliced vegan cheese. I’m glad you did a breakfast recipe. I have trouble figuring out what to make for breakfast some times. I haven’t felt like making smoothies lately.

  44. Nancy says:

    I tend to just stick with fruit before noon. I filled up on cantelope and watermelon this morning. I do like Ezekiel once in a while with alomond milk tho.

  45. Jann says:

    I had 5 or 6 fresh peaches cut up with nut milk in a bowl!! Out of this world delish!!

    Snack: apple slices with almond butter

  46. Brendon says:

    I had a massive green smoothie because I eat it for breakfast but it carries me over until late afternoon.
    Half a kilo of kale; half a kilo of baby spinach; 1 kiwfruit; 1 banana; 1 coconut water; 2 tablespoons soaked chia seeds; 1 tablespoon of flaxseed meal; 1 tablespoon of vital greens (http://www.vitalgreens.com/); 500 mL of “hard” water; a handful of snow pea sprouts and BLEND!
    Always a great way to start the day!

  47. Ry says:

    While thinking about my gift giving suggestion for your Kev powder, also consider automatic shipment with a discount.

  48. Patrina says:

    A comment about the flax seed oil – it’s good to be aware that just in the process of extracting the oil from seeds a lot of the oil will oxidise before it ever gets into the bottle. Interesting about the nitrogen being pumped into the bottle to prevent further oxidation in the air space tho. I imagine that it’s only good until you open the bottle because once you tip and pour some oil the nitrogen would mix with incoming air stirring it up and of course as the level of the oil drops more and more air is getting into the bottle. Every time you pour you are mixing the contents and exposing ever more unoxidised oil to oxygen in the top portion of the bottle.

    In my opinion, if you are going to buy flax seed oil it would be worth decantering it immediately upon opening into lots of small (one ounce) dark brown bottles filled to the brim with oil, then stored in the fridge. That way you are only exposing a small amount to the air at a time, and not mixing it with deeper layers of oil every time you pour some out of a larger bottle.

    I personally prefer just to use freshly ground flax seeds, and in Annemarie’s recipe above I would just blend a tablespoon of flax seeds in a coffee grinder then sprinkle over the whole breakfast (coconut cream as well) kinda like a fine crumble 🙂

  49. Tyra McMahon says:

    A handful of organic blueberries and a green smoothie that consisted of banana, peach, hemp seeds, cinnamon, almond milk, camu powder and a whole bunch of mixed greens.

  50. gloria says:

    I normally make a smoothie or juice for breakfast. Todays juice was 3 leaves of kale, some spinach, a cucumber, about 7stalks of celery, small garlic clove, a pice of ginger, a tomato, and some parsley. I like to add either apples or frozen bananas, but today I opted to omit those. It was good.
    Some times I make sprouted oats or buckwheat with apples, raisins or dates, cinnamon, and almond milk, yummy yummy!!!!

  51. Paul says:

    Superfood Smoothie
    Banana, Cacoa powder, Brown Rice Protine, Supergreens Powder, Spirulina, and almond Milk.

  52. joan says:

    I had a green smoothie consisting of baby spinach, banana, blueberries and unsweetened almond milk.

  53. crow says:

    Had a smoothie and a handful of raw mixed nuts.

  54. Tandi says:

    I had 1/2 banana sliced, 1/2 peach sliced, raisins in some almond milk. I can’t wait to try the breakfast you featured, looks great.

  55. Rafael Morales Jr says:

  56. Janet L Brown says:

    We had a fresh Kefir smoothie with apple, banana, nectarine and strawberries, and a piece of toasted bread made from sprouted wheat, with Marmite on it. Yum! We make a kefir smoothie every morning and just throw in whatever fruit we have available. If I’m really hungry I’ll put raw oats in it, especially in the winter.

    I want to progress to vegetable smoothies, everyone in this page has inspired me!

    Be Well,
    Janet

  57. Nathalie says:

    Cheers for the help on breakkie alternatives…
    Much needed!!

    This morning I started off with warm/hot water with fresh hand-sqeezed organic lemon juice.
    Then about 45 minutes later I had 3 organic banana’s!

    50 minutes of body core work out.

    Then at 10am I was hungry again, so I had organic mixed-salad on 1/3 thyme baguette (sour dough).

  58. Cynthia says:

    I can’t wait to try this, looks yummy!!
    For breakfast today I had Acai Bowl, the recipe from Ani Phyo’s book…
    3 packages of Acai smoothie pack (without sugar)
    1 banana
    3/4 cup of pecans
    1/3 cup of water (or less)
    1/4 cup of agave, I hardly use any!
    Place in blender blend until smooth, DO NOT GET IT HOT!
    You want this to be thick.
    Put in bowl and top with raw granola and fruit,YUMMY!!!!!
    Cynthia

  59. Gabriela says:

    I had a big green smoothie and lots of papaya! 😀

  60. casey says:

    I am still hungry, will have a second breakfast now that my head is full of ideas, just need to go shopping in my garden! First breakfast was, was lemon water, then 2 hand fulls of blueberries and a bannana and 2 rice cakes with peanut butter. No wonder I am still hungry! Thank you every one for sharing, there are enough ideas here for the next month of breakfasts! Thank you!

  62. kris says:

    Yeah,yeah breakfast!! I had watermelon juice to start my day and when I was hungry for some solids I had hazelnutmilk soaked chia pudding with vanilla beans and sweetened it with lucama powder (boy I love this stuff!! Trying to let go of the agave!) and some darks cherries I defrosted from the freezer mixed in!!!yummy yummy

  63. Michael T. says:

    Nice recipe, you two. Thanks very much.

    Kevin, sometimes you say the strangest things.

    Your saying that nitrogen protects the flax oil from oxygen because it is heavier than oxygen is just too funny! If nitrogen were really heavier than oxygen, then we would not be able to breathe down here at sea level, because the atmosphere is about 80 percent nitrogen and only 20 percent oxygen.

    In reality, nitrogen and oxygen mix together just fine. That’s what makes it possible for us to breathe. We can’t live on pure oxygen, we need to have the nitrogen in the air.

    I believe that nitrogen packed bottles are produced by using a vacuum to pull most of the oxygen out of the top of the bottle, and then filling the top with pure nitrogen gas.

    I agree with the previous comment that it is a good idea to pour the flax oil into several smaller bottles, to avoid exposure to oxygen. And keeping it in the fridge will reduce the rate of oxidation.

    Anyway, despite my nit-picking, I really do appreciate the shows and the recipes.

    My first breakfast is orange juice mixed with some kind of green powder, such as Green Vibrance or Perfect Food. Later, I have cooked oatmeal with raw honey, sunwarrior protein powder, cinnamon and raw cacao.

    Trying to combine the best of raw and cooked foods.

    Keep up the great work.

    Michael T.

  64. Aga says:

    heloo:)))
    I had for breakfast:
    green juce -celery, cucumber,ginger
    and green smootie:
    nut milk+sprout buckwheat+spirulina+maca+stevia

    have nice day xoxo

  65. Sheila says:

    For breakfast I had red quinoa, diced peach, pepita seeds, a little raw honey, poured on a little goat kefir and sprinkled cinnamon and shredded coconut on top!
    Kevin and Ann Marie, love your shows!

  66. Ruth Harp says:

    My first intake of the day is always a warm lemon water with some probiotics. That fills me up for about an hour and then I enjoy a green smoothie for breakfast. My favorite combination is banana, pineapple, goji berries and Italian kale with Udo’s Oil (EFA’s) which is what I am having today. I now have two of my daughers hooked on green smoothies which feels really good. Later in the morning if I feel hungry, I will eat some fruit. Yummy organic cherries yesterday and today! I also sometimes make a raw chocolate hemp milk that makes a very invigorating breakfast or snack.

  67. Cindy says:

    Juice: kale, pear, carrot, parsley, lemon.
    Followed by a smoothie about 30mins later: frozen banana, blueberries, soaked goji berries, juice from soaking goji, flax oil and water.
    Yum!

  68. Alex C. says:

    I had a juice: carrot, beet, apple, ginger, lemon right when I woke up to get a little energy (really helps me get in a good short workout). Followed by a bowl of soaked oat groats with fresh strawberries! I love ’em oat groats! Just making my green smoothie to take to work and enjoy in a few short hours (I try to eat 6 times a day to boost my slow metabolism).

  69. Jean says:

    Hi Kevin, Great show and good ideas hear for breakfast. I was having trouble figuring ideas out too. I had Juiced organic carrots and oranges just plain and simple and yummy. I know I keep asking this question but I realy want to know. What is your take or have you researched anything on GMO seedless fruits (such as watermelon, grapes..) Some recieps in victoris book calls for them so are thay ok? Is there any value in them? (Anyone know any answers are they ok to use)? Thanks

  70. sarah says:

    i had a peach with a handful of chopped mixed nuts sprinkled on top and some raw honey. i’m new to this raw food thing so i’m greatful of any ideas to help me break the habit of a lifetime of breakfasting on toast with lashings of butter and marmalde.

  71. Didiydi says:

    A handful of blackberries! Thanks for the recipe!

  72. Paula says:

    Green smoothie today,
    honeydew, banana, spinach, hemp, cinnamon.
    This a variation on one from your smoothie book, and My 6yr olds favorite. She has it almost everyday but still feels the need to have a little cooked cereal after her smoothie like oatmeal. If I can slowly try to replace the oatmeal with a recipe like todays that would be great.
    Also what do you think about raw oats? My daughter likes to eat them a lot?

  73. I must say that recipe looks awesome, sad I don’t have fresh ginger otherwise I’d do it for tomorrow.

    I had a green smoothie: 1/2 pineapple, 1 frozen banana, handfull of green leaf greens, water. Not bad but missing something.

  74. Kim says:

    Usually an apple or a smoothie, occassionally steel cut oats. this morning I made the recipe from the video and it was YUMMMMY!!! one large apple made plenty for me and my youngest, my 12 year old however,well, there is never enough for him. Thanks Annmarie it was delicious!!!

    PEACE AND BLESSINGS

  75. Beth says:

    Looks so yummy. I think it will appear on the breakfast table this weekend.

    On weekdays Green Smoothies are the breakfast choice (fast, easy, and transportable).

    Today’s Green Smoothie:
    1/4 of a pineapple
    1 ripe banana
    1/2 frozen banana
    1 knob of ginger
    1 handful cilantro (out of my garden)
    1 handful butter lettuce (out of my garden)
    1 handful romaine lettuce
    1/2 cup of water

    Yummy!

  76. CINDY says:

    I always have a cup of green tea,a banana and a bowl of some fresh or frozen blueberries.

  77. JUANITA says:

  84. Tonja says:

    Today I needed a breakfast on the go, so it was a home-made bar made with dates, chia seeds, hemp seeds, black sesame seeds, and several kinds of sea vegetables. I often make a green smoothie, and sometimes have a salad or other lunch/dinner food.

  85. Helen says:

    Im having fun reading what youve all had for breakfast! Very Inspiring 🙂

    This morning I made a juice; beetroot, cucumber, celery, ginger, carrot, apple,brocolli with a shot of wheatgrass and dandelion juice too (Ive been reading how dandelion juice can strengthen bones including teeth, my tooth enamel needs building ‘dandelion’ stems from the french ‘dent de lion’ meaning Lions Tooth!) I also mixed in Barleygrass powder.

  86. Frances says:

    GREEN smoothie (almost) every day.
    Hey Kevin, I have a question for you:
    Before I went raw, from Dec-May, I had 2 ovarian cysts rupture. Today, a friend told me that this may be a symptom that I have lots of various cysts. I have had trouble learning about healing from cysts from a raw perspective (in fact, I’ve found nothing from ANY perspective beyond being instructed to stay in bed until the pain is gone). I’m wondering about cleansing the ovaries (is there such a thing???), supporting ovarian health, and whether or not ruptured ovarian cysts are a major concern.
    Thanks!

    Breakfast here is simple . . . it all fits in one large bowl.
    A bowl of Perkys (gluten-free, sugar-free) nutty rice cereal with added cinnamon, shelled hemp seed, walnuts, almonds, goji berries, mulberries, goldenberries, a banana and goat’s milk.

  88. Thomas says:

    Frances, you should check out the earth clinic blog on that:

    Good luck and quick healing.

    Hi AnnMarie and Kevin!

    AnnMarie, it sure seems like you gave yourself a pretty small portion in that gorgeous wooden bowl. That wouldn’t be enough for me.

    I usually have a geen smoothie everymorning with spirulina, but today I wanted something different and I had just bought a huge baby Thai coconut, so I put in all of its water, plus all of its meat, plus, my usual heaping tablespoon of Bee Pollen, two tablespoons of Hemp protein powder, two level tablespoons of Maca, one tablespoon of cacoa powder, one tablespoon of flax seed oil, and one tablespoon of agave, plus 3 large ice cubes. It ws really good and tasted like a chocolate milk shake. I could only drink have of it and am have the rest for dessert after my dinner salad. My breakfast smoothies keeps me satisfied till 3 or 4PM then I have a salad, and fruit.

    BTW AnnMarie I used your method of opening the Thai coconut and it was soooooooooo easy. Thanks so much for your great show.

    You guys are great and I love your show!

    My breakfast this morning consisted of granola that I made from my the pulp I had left from my almond and coconut milks mixed with oats, almonds, and raisins. Once dehydrated for several hours, this tastes yummy!

    I ate it with a bananna and nut milk on it.

  94. Melody says:

    I had an apple and an orange today for breakfast.

    Thanks for the recipe.

    By the way, Agave is 90% fructose. Agave is heated when it is processed too. And too much fructose can cause glycation of proteins. If one is diabetic or has a family history of diabetes it would be wise to avoid using agave for this reason.

    If you need to understand glycation please read Dr Gabriel Cousens new book “There is a Cure for Diabetes”. You can find it on Amazon.com that is where I bought it.

    This looks amazing! My almost 3-year-old daughter watched with me and can’t wait for breakfast tomorrow. 🙂

    I usually have green juice (the “it’s for health, not for taste” kind), but this morning it was watermelon meat and seeds blended up into “watermelon juice”. After my morning juice, I almost always have some maca water (simply maca powder and water whisked together) and I sometimes do a msm/lemon water too. I like to drink my meals until about noon. 😉

  96. Bob says:

    I’ve got candida and need to food combine for my digestion. What about recipes that don’t mix fruit with veggies or starches? Today’s recipe looks do-able, but some of the others offered here are no-go. Suggestions?

    watermelon blended with peaches, mint and lemon balm – about 1 litre 🙂

  101. Rhonda says:

    Thanks Kevin & AnnMarie for a great show & for all you do to keep us informed & inspired! I’m very new to the Raw Food lifestyle & I’m so excited about the changes I’m already seeing in myself. I have a question though…have you known anyone or has your great fan base known of anyone who has regained the thickness to their hair by going Raw Food? Don’t get me wrong, I’m doing this for life and for the life of my health, but I have suffered thinning hair for so long now and would love to have some hope concerning it.

  102. I just finished a bowl of Laughing Giraffe Pineapple Macadamia Coconut Cacao Granola topped with chia seeds, goji berries, cacao nibs and almond milk.

    That should get me going 🙂

  103. Tommy says:

    I am currently eating Slippery Elm Bark Porridge. It’s sweetened with stevia, cinnamon, and goji berries. It’s my medicinal breakfast.

  104. sarah says:

    Post-workout green smoothie. Hemp protein, raw carob, 1/2 a banana, lots of lettuce and celery, parsley, stevia, and ice. It’s like green ice cream. Yum!!

  105. Jes says:

    This morning I ate a nut milky peach earth tea thingie. I soaked cashews, walnuts and sunflower seeds with coconut shavings over night then blended them up with a couple peaches, some Earth Tea and Sun is Shining and water. Yum (unstrained)

  106. Connie says:

    I had a glass of water with three of my Juice Plus capsules–2 orchard blend and 1 vineyard blend. You can read about Juice Plus at https://canada.juiceplus.com/nsa/content/Home.soa?site=cl04718 At the moment, we also have a bowl of three different kinds of grapes on the counter–YUMMY!

    Later on I had a glass of grape juice with a tablespoon of liquid pectin mixed in.
    Kevin, how come you don’t eat what Annemarie eats? You seem to be always making separate meals for yourselves…

    Connie

  107. Kevin says:

    Fruit salad, organic grapes, pinapple, papaya, mango, asian pear, bosc pear

  108. Wanda says:

    I tried the basic Apple Ginger Breakfast Medley without the whipped topping. Gotta tell you … incredible!! I loved it!! I made it up again with 4 large organic apples and sprinkled nutmeg and just a bit of cinnamon and OMG! it’s wonderful. I used it with all kinds of meals – side dish, main dish, relish. I’m forcing myself to wait to make it again – too much of a good thing.

    Thanks for the recipe.

  109. Christina says:

    I had Gluten Free Oatmeal with fresh black berries and a light drizzle of Organic Blue Agave Nectar. The oatmeal is made with a mixture Ground Almond Meal, Chia Seeds, Salba Seeds and Flax seeds. Since I’m on the Paleo diet, I need all the Omega 3’s I can get and this breakfast is super charged with Omega 3’s.

    I’m going to try your apple breakfast tomorrow morning. That looks tasty.
