Raw Breakfast Please

February was all about chocolate (plus trips to Brooklyn, Atlanta, Maryland) and has left me desperately in need of detoxing my body.  Even as I write this, I am sitting here sipping a mimosa.  For me, detox means to eat raw (or as raw as possible).  So, here is my go to raw breakfast these days.  It is the easiest thing in the world and tastes so good.

Raw & Easy Breakfast

  • Banana (or two depending on how hungry you are)
  • Raw Whole Hazelnuts
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Buckwheat Groats
  • Hemp Seeds
  • Shaved Coconut (this is one of those things that as awesome as a fresh coconut is, it is a lot of work and most of the time I opt for it in a bag)

*With any food, my philosophy is try to buy it in its original state if possible.  Local (if possible), organic or naturally grown, and raw.


The only thing that needs any work is slicing the banana.  Then it is just sprinkling a handful of this and a little of that according to taste.  Honestly, I usually just pour until it looks right, but if I had to guess, I would say 1-2 Tbs hemp seeds, a small handful of hazelnuts, 2 Tbs buckwheat groats, a small handful of coconut and then just a 1/2 tsp cinnamon.  One banana is good, unless I am really hungry.

Hope you enjoy!  (I am obviously not ready to give up a morning cup of tea or latte.  So much for detoxing…maybe next week…)
