Chia seed pudding and green smoothie breakfast

If you ever wondered what a raw foodie eats for breakfast then this is what it could look like

This picture shows a green smoothie on the right and the chia pudding with dates, bananas and raw cacao on the left aaaand a big plate of fresh fruit in this case I had fresh figs, persimons, bananas and apples.

I am not living completely raw but through my searches in the internet for vegan stuff I also always got a lot of information on all this raw food stuff. Therefor I always include a great amount of fresh veggies and fruit in my daily meals. It makes a lot of sense to me that it must  really be  the healthiest way of eating as your body needs those enzymes which are provided only by fresh and alive food. If you ever saw someone who is eating a raw diet you must have noticed their good skin. It seems like they are glowing and radiating the freshness which they consume day by day. Makes sense as the human skin replaces itself every 28 days (your liver 5 months and your bones 10 years) and your body makes these cells out of the food you eat. What you eat literally becomes you!

There are a few role models in the raw scene which are known by the media as natural wonders as the don’t seem to age. One of them is called Mimi Kirk and the other lady is Annette Larkins. They are both in their seventies and are for me amazing and inspiring women. I added  youtube links if you are interested.

So sometimes I make a raw day. I found chia seeds trough my recipes searches. It is an ancient superfood which was already eaten by the Mayans. As it provides a lot of energy the mayans used to take it if they had to transfer messages through the jungle. They could run all day with the help of these little seeds. In fact, Chia means “strength” in the language of the Mayans and the seeds were considered medicine. They were actually prized more than gold due to their incredible health enhancing properties.

They are an protein and calcium boost!!

In order for the calcium to be best absorbed into the body you got to combine with almonds. Also you need to always acitvate nuts and seeds by soaking them in liquid. So I soak my chia seeds for 1/2h  in almond milk (which is the cheapest and best when homemade!) Then the seeds shed some gel and you receive a substance just like pudding . I add 4 dates and some raw cacao powder for sweet and yumminess.

the green smoothie is simply 2 hands spinach leaves,  1 cup pineapple, 1 frozen banana and 1 orange.

  1. Hello jenny,
    I always buy my chia seeds in the vegan supermarket “Veganz”. But you can also buy them at a healthfood store too, but there they are a little more expensive 🙂
