Raw fruit and cereal bowl

Saturday, May 22, 2010

I was really hungry when I got home from a booty-kicking bootcamp this morning! Inspired by a couple of my fellow bootcampers, I threw together this raw breakfast. It was so good that I had to write it down so that I would remember how to make it again!

I included dates because they contain glucose which helps to replenish post-exertion glycogen stores (i.e. they help fuel your next workout) and chia seeds for protein, fiber, iron, essential amino acids, and omega 3s.

Raw fruit and cereal bowl
1/4 cup dry/uncooked rolled oats
1 Tbsp chia seeds
~1 cup chopped fruit (I used a combo of peaches and strawberries)
3/4 cup water
3 dates
1/4 cup raw cashews
1/2 tsp vanilla (or 1/3 of a vanilla bean if you have a high-powered blender)

  1. Combine the oats and chia seeds in a bowl and top with the fruit.
  2. Blend the water, dates, cashews, and vanilla on high until smooth (should be milk-like). Pour over the fruit and oat mix.
I ate this quickly with an almost-two-year old climbing on me, so I don't have any photos, sorry!
