Breakfast Crumpets

What can I say? I am crumpet-obsessed. I buy a pack of 8 from Trader Joes, and they are gone in 2 days.

Here is a delicious vegetarian and dairy-free breakfast crumpet recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Whole Eggs
  • 2 TBSP Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 2 Crumpets
  • Cooking Spray
  • 2 Slices Mozzarella Vegan Rice Cheese
  • 1/2 Small Avocado (cut into slices)

In a small bowl, crack your 2 eggs and add the almond milk. Whisk until it is completely mixed.

Heat the cooking oil on med-high heat. Dip each crumpet in to the egg mixture; make sure that both sides are covered and let it soak for a couple seconds.

Once the pan is hot, place the crumpets in the pan and fry them on each side for about 2 minutes or until they are browned. Take them off the heat and set aside.

Add more cooking spray to the pan, and cook the remaining eggs. (I usually let the eggs cook like an omelet so that they stick together and make it easier to place on top of the crumpet).

Place a slice of “cheese” on each crumpet. Divide the cooked eggs in half and place on top of the cheese. Top it off with some avocado slices and prepare to have your taste buds and mind blown!

Healthy, Yummy, Happy Juice

I’m a huuuuge fan of juicing. Lucky for me, my roommate has a fancy Bellevue Juicer.

Juicing is probably one of the best things you can do for yourself, with lots nutrients, the juice form helps quick absorption and digestion. And I  always feel energized after I have my morning juice!

Make sure you buy organic!

Juicing Ingredients:

  • 3 Carrots (ends cut off)
  • 1/6 of a Pineapple
  • 1/2 Cucumber
  • 1/2 Lime
  • 1/4 Grapefruit (peeled)
  • 3 Romaine Leaves

Make sure you rinse off your veggies before!

Pineapple just makes juicing so much yummier!

Don’t worry about cutting the center piece out of the pineapple. Even though we don’t tend to eat it since it is somewhat tough, the juicer can handle it and you get a few extra drops of pineapple in your drink.

Enjoy your juice and feel rejuvinated!

Raw Cashew Yogurt Parfait with Sprouted Buckwheat

All I have to say is: nom nom nom.

Aside from the lengthy time it takes to sprout buckwheat, this recipe is very simple and totally delicious. Not to mention, sprouted buckwheat has tons of great health benefits. It is gluten-free and wheat-free, and high in protein. It is high in lecithin, which can lower cholesterol, high in rutin, which strengthens veins, high in iron, brain-boosting, colon-cleansing, and all sorts of other great things which you can read about here.

HOW TO SPROUT BUCKWHEAT:

What You Need:

  • Buckwheat
  • Fine Mesh Colander
  • Water

STEP 1: Soak Buckwheat in Water

Place the buckwheat in to a bowl and fill it with water, about an inch above the buckwheat. Stir once or twice while it is soaking.

You can soak it anywhere from 1 to 12 hours. I soaked mine for 3 hours and it worked perfectly.

STEP 2: Rinse & Drain

After soaking, the buckwheat will start to make this slimy liquid. Place the buckwheat in to the colander and rinse thoroughly with cold water.

Then place a bowl underneath the colander and buckwheat to catch any liquid that drips down.

STEP 3: Continue for 2-3 Days

Rinse the buckwheat in cold water 2-3 times a day for 2-3 days, until you start to see little white “tails” growing. I rinsed mine 3 times a day for 2 days and it definitely sprouted!

RAW CASHEW YOGURT PARFAIT RECIPE:

Once you have sprouted the buckwheat, you can start on the rest of the recipe! And if you have any buckwheat left over, you can always mix it in to some Oatmeal or cereal.

Ingredients (For 2 Parfaits):

  • 1 Cup Cashews
  • 1/2 Cup – 1 Cup Water
  • 3 Dates (don’t forget to take the pits out!)
  • 2/3 Cup Sprouted Buckwheat
  • 1 Cup Fruit

Soaking cashews & dates

Soak the cashews and dates in a bowl with room temperature water for 10-15 minutes (this is mainly for people with weak blenders, myself included).

Drain the water from the cashews and dates. Place the dates and cashews into the blender. Add about 1/2 cup of water. Start on a low setting and blend. Add more water as needed, up to 1 cup total for water in to the yogurt. Once you have the desired consistency (should be a thick paste), blend an extra 1-2 minutes.

Now, split the cashew yogurt between 2 bowls, add 1/3 cup buckwheat (more if desired) to each bowl, and then 1/2 cup fruit to each bowl. And ta-da! You have a tasty raw yogurt parfait!

Ideas For Fruit:

-Oranges, Green Apple, Banana

-Papaya with a squeeze of Lime

-Persimmons and Banana

-Blueberries and Rasberries
