I Like It Raw Oatmeal

Standard

Okay, I know oatmeal is good for you, but a big bowl of cooked oatmeal sits in my stomach like a ton of bricks.  I hate that feeling, so I’ve avoided eating oatmeal for years.  Then a few months ago, I bought my first raw food cookbook, Raw Food: A Complete Guide for Every Meal of the Day. I expanded on a recipe for muesli that has become my favorite breakfast.  It’s different every time, based on what I have on hand.

The base is rolled oats, nuts, seeds and unsweetened coconut.Image

 

Then I add all kinds of healthy stuff, like ground flax, chia seeds, wheat germ and my personal favorite, Maca powder.Image

I top everything off with a little sweetener, agave or maple syrup, and almond milk. The result is a super satisfying breakfast that gives me tons of energy for my workouts and yoga practices.Image

As a culinary school grad and yoga enthusiast, I am very seriously into eating good healthy food and sharing creative, easy ways to prepare it. When I'm not cooking, I love teaching yoga, talking about yoga, reading about yoga and doing yoga. And I believe the more you live it, the more you find yourself wanting, even craving, clean wholesome food.
