I could eat breakfast all day long. I’m definitely a breakfast kinda girl. After I got in to raw foods I really missed a bowl of cereal. There’s nothing handier and tastier as a snack than a big bowl of cereal in my opinion. Or cereal for dinner. And drinking the last bits straight out the bowl…Mmm…
Anyway, so imagine my delight that a number of raw cereals are making their way to the UK market? 🙂 Well. lucky for you you don’t have to imagine my delight because I’m about to plaster it all over this blog post. WOOOOO DEEEEEEEELIGHTTTT 🙂
Conventional breakfast cereals, touted as healthy, tend to be overly processed, full of sugar and salt and void of nutrition (unless you count artificial colouring, preservatives and flavouring as one of your five a day) 😉 Don’t be conned in to falling for the ‘full of vitamins and minerals’ bullshit either. The nutrients in conventional supermarket cereals are synthetic (i.e. a man made them) which are much less nutritious (obviously) and sometimes even dangerous for your sexy bod!
These little raw beauties are nutritionally sound, full of yummy ecstatic flavours, superfoods and ingredients guaranteed to make your breakfast bowl sit up all night awake just cos it’s so excited to have something so utterly devine and gorgeous to hold for your morning pleasure 🙂
Kate Magic has released 3 new cereals which she calls Be Real. There’s Be Good, Be Bright and Be Happy which are made from sprouted enzyme-rich buckwheat, camu-camu, lucuma and probiotics to help your tum do cartwheels of joy. My fave is Be Good which is the chocolate (no surprise there) and mulberry infusion as well as yumbo superfood ashwaganda thrown in on top for good measure. I hadn’t been prepared enough to soak my nuts so made a quick hemp milk using shelled hemp seeds and xylitol. Hemp milk from shelled is not as good as hemp milk from unshelled (are you keeping up?) but when you’ve been a bit lazy it’s quick to make and still nutritious. I used about 3 tbsp of seeds to 1 cup water and 1tsp xylitol blended and no need to strain – another bonus of shelled.
Viva Pure are stocking Living Intentions Chocolate Granola. More chocolate for breakfast? Forget coco pops, tell that monkey to come back to you when he’s decided not to add so much shit to his cereal and has instead got his little monkey hands on some maca, dulse and reishi to turn the milk chocolatey 🙂 This stuff is bloody amazing enjoyed with almond milk.
I also made this yumbo breakkie this week. Strawberry porridge. 1 cup buckwheat soaked overnight – rinse well in the morning – process with 1 cup strawbs, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp xylitol. Bloody marvellous
Look what Sarah from Grassroots made…it’s a raw whoopie pie! Lavender flavour if you can believe? That girl deserves a crystal manna crown
Heaven truly is sitting eating chocolate cereal while watching the infinitely gorgeous Michael Hutchence…
