Kick-starting your morning routine

Yoga , Nutrition / April 11, 2020 / 1 Minute Read / Comments

We like to start our mornings on an empty stomach with a 1.5-2 hour yoga asana, pranayama and meditation, followed by a homemade power breakfast of raw foods, seeds, and nuts that keeps us going for 4-5 hours.

The breakfast

Plant milk: Just discovered for the first time how easy and yummy it is to make my own rice milk. Was tired of going through boxes of plant-based milks that tasted like watered-down cardboard. It is incredible to see how much cheaper, better-tasting, and eco-friendly this rice milk is! Just boil rice and blend it with water. This recipe calls for dates as sweetener, which I skipped, and added some vanilla for flavoring. Also mixed some homemade coconut milk halfway through and it was heavenly.

The trail mix: Cashews, almonds, pecans, cranberries, raisins, goji berries, dates, pine nuts, cacao nibs, pumpkin seeds, and shredded coconut or any other seed or nut you can come up with.

The protein powder: Hemp, flaxseed powder, chia, pollen, black and white sesame seeds to keep refrigerated. I use it in my fruit bowl, curries, and also fresh-squeezed juices along with some amla powder for an additional Vitamin C boost.

The Granola: For the first time ever, also discovered the best granola ever…of course, it is homemade! No longer buying sugar-loaded, nutrient-deficient, cardboard-tasting cereal or granola! It’s so easy to make and you can get totally creative with your own mix of seeds, nuts and flavoring. I used rolled oats mixed with pressed wheat for this heavenly granola.
