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.

About Sarita Chia

Hello and Namaskaram from South India my current home. My name is Sarita and I am originally from Germany. After spending my last 7 years in the big cities Berlin and London I decided to settle for a life in a more peaceful, green and soothing atmosphere. Here I share my passion for raw and vegan food. It's been quite a journey for me after turning vegan in May 2011 and I got to explore so incredibly much in these past years and got quite experienced in food prep, cooking vegan meals and moreover learning to listening to my body and which foods suit me the best. I just adore sweet fruit and love to indulge in raw desserts, cakes, ice creams, cookies, smoothie bowls, you name it. Just can't get over it what magic can be done with simple ingredients being likewise a treat for your taste buds and for your system. Yoga and meditation has become another big part of my life over the years. I feel the benefits from just that little fragment of time which I invest daily. I feel that that’s for me the most significant experience of my life which I want to deepen even more. Apart from that I'm a big nature fan and love love love trees :) and yes I also hug them if I feel like it. I'm a great hippie just like my parents, all up for love and peace. I believe that everyone creates their own world and is responsible for everything happening in their lives, even the bad stuff. I try to keep a happy and positive outlook on things as I find that perception creates reality. I am also a great dreamer: I believe that everyone on this planet will turn vegan someday and that it's possible for humankind to evolve into conscious and loving beings which manage to live without wars, money, hatred and crime. The revolution has already started as everyone starts from their own personal (r)evolution towards truth, compassion, empathy, love, peace and all the good stuff. We are constantly learning how to be better humans that’s what I believe. And dayum I ride my rainbow colored unicorn in my sunshine filled fairy world just because I can. I believe in magic. True every day magic. Good happy magic moments. It happens every day you just have to open your eyes ;) Travelling is my heart and I count it as a great part of education. The most important one actually! I think that by travelling you get to learn the real shit! The real life lessons! Be free and wild. Be a child of wind and sun. With this blog I hope to inspire others to make healthier & happier choices and I hope to show how easy it is to switch and keep up a healthy plantbased diet all around the world.

  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 🙂
