My Wake-up Cleansing Drink
Use organic as much as is possible
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon Tumeric
1/8-1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or black pepper)
1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon sea salt (NEVER use table salt)
1 and 1/2 cups warm water
1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (optional)
Drink this first thing in the mornings. It lowers blood pressure and helps with controlling inflammation, which is the major cause of disease. I challenge you to try it for 30 days and notice the difference! If you are diabetic, I would suggest leaving out the maple syrup or honey. I drink mine without the sweetener.
Drinking water or this cleansing drink first thing in the mornings has many health benefits. Check this website to read more about the benefits. http://www.healthyfoodhouse.com/see-happens-drink-water-empty-stomach/
Breakfast is the most important part of my day! During the week, when I need to go to work early, I will usually have a fruit bowl, cereal, and toast. On weekends, when I have more time, I will usually become creative and make elaborate breakfasts. Some of these, I have found on the internet or in books and I added my slant to them, some are my complete creations. Enjoy!
Fruity French Crepes
Ingredients for Crepes
- 2 cups water
- 1/4 cup raw cashew
- 1/2 cup quick oats
- 2 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 tspn salt ( or amt to taste)
- 1/4 cup wheat germ
- 1/4 cup ground flax seed
- Blend all ingredients to a smooth texture ( should be able to pour)
- heat a small nonstick skillet on medium flame
- pour enough mixture to cover the bottom of the pan ( not too thick) and allow to cook through for about a minute or more depending on the thickness of the skillet
- turn with a spatula and allow the other side to cook for about 1/2 minute
- remove from the skillet and stack on a plate, and cover with a paper towel while you make the whole batch.
- Place 3 crepes on a breakfast plate, cover with peanut butter
- add pieces of fresh cut strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, banana
- add pieces of toasted pecans on top
- sprinkle some bee pollen (about 1 tablespoon)
- drizzle on some molasses, honey, or maple syrup
This batch can make 1 dozen crepes, depending on the size of your skillet. The rest can be placed in a ziplock bag and stay in the refrigerator for up to 1 week depending on the temperature of the refrigerator or placed in the freezer for months. I make a batch on the weekend and warm the crepes in an air fryer for breakfast during the week. This is quite filling so there is no need for anything else except a cup of tea, coffee (black), or juice. This provides all the nutrients in 1 meal.
Oatmeal With a Difference
- Organic steel cut oats cooked in nut milk and Himalayan salt to taste
- coconut flakes
- toasted pumpkin seeds
- toasted cashew
- toasted walnuts
This is quite filling and is quite nutritious! Combine all ingredients and enjoy!
Fruit and Nut Bowl
- orange and grapefruit pieces
- bee pollen
- pieces of dried (or fresh) apricot
- toasted Brazil nuts
- Honey or Royal jelly
Nutritious and delicious!
