Breakfast Recipes

These are simple, highly nutritious and delicious breakfast recipes. Please use them according to regional and seasonal availability, and rotate them. Although we entirely support the living food diet we realize that it may be difficult for many people to switch to it immediately. Therefore we also list transitional recipes that are more familiar, easy to implement, and will put you on a fast track to vibrant health.

• 1-3 sub-acid fruit (apple, pear, grapes, papaya, mango, berries)

• 1-3 cups of sunflower sprouts
• ¼-1/3 cup carrot/apple juice or water
• ¼ – ½ avocado
• 1 ripe tomato
• greens ½-1 cup (kale, parsley, dandelion, sprouts, spinach)
• ½ cup of hard vegetables (carrot, red pepper, beets, tomato, broccoli)
• ½ -1 lemon peeled
• optional flavoring: cayenne pepper, herbs, spices, garlic, onion, red pepper
Blend veggies first with the liquid.

This shake is super energizing, cleansing and nutritious. Your body is going to love it!


• ½ cup non-gluten grain (brown rice, quinoa, millet, amaranth, teff)
• 1½-2 cups purified water
• ½ cup chopped yam, squash or parsley root
• dried fruit
• ghee or oil

Soak grain overnight, in the morning drain the water, put new water into the grain and add veggies. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 15-30 minutes. Halfway through add dried fruit. Serve garnished with a bit of ghee or oil (if using oil wait till the cereal cools a little).

Teff and Amaranth are very small grains that you might want to combine with any other listed grain in a 1 to 3 ratio. This is a much better substitute for oatmeal as these grains are gluten-free and will not inhibit absorption, clog the colon or produce mucous. Very satisfying in the cold weather.

• ½ cup raw nuts or seeds. The best are: almond, hazelnut, pecan, sunflower, sesame and pumpkin. Please stay away from peanuts and cashews.
• 1½ cup water
• raw honey or organic maple syrup or stevia
• ¼ cup of soaked dates or raisins (soak 4 hours in room temperature water)
• ½ banana
• 1-2 tsp of carob powder
• cinnamon

You could control the amount by changing quantity of nuts/seeds and water, keeping the 1-3 or 1-4 ratio, depending on how thick you’d like your milk to be.

To increase nutrition and energy of your seeds soak them for 8-12 hours, drain the water, put seeds and new water in the blender, and blend until it’s white and thorough blended (10-30 seconds in K-TEC or Vita-Mix). Strain using a fine to medium strainer and a spatula. Discard the pulp, put the liquid back into the blender and add whatever ingredients you are using for flavor. Blend again.

It is super-high in protein and very easy to digest because you’re not eating the pulp. Can be used as a breakfast or snack. Enjoy!
