Raw Food Breakfast Scramble?

Since I finished the Master Cleanse last month I have been so focused on eating clean.  (Not including being on the ship for the past week!)  I don’t want to put much into my body that is not alkaline!  This is a good thing.  So when I got up this morning, I wanted a raw food breakfast, but I felt a little daring and decided to delve into uncharted territory!  So I did what most people do when they are seeking adventure into the unknown… I surfed youtube!!

Youtube did not let raw food breakfast scrambleme down in my quest.  I settled on an interesting concoction… a Raw Food Breakfast scramble.  There were several versions of this dish, all of them had sunflower seeds for a base.  Some of them included a nut of some sort.  There was a version with Brazil nuts, but I settled on the one with almonds.  The chef creating that particular version was Ani Phyo and I have had good results with some of her recipes.  In the end I took ingredients from about three different scrambles, and this is what I ended up doing…

  • 1 cup soaked raw Almonds (I soak my almonds overnight)
  • 1/2 cup raw Sunflower seeds
  • 1 tsp Tumeric
  • 1/2 tsp Sea salt
  • 1 tsp Nutritional flakes
  • 3/4 cup filtered water

Combine the dry ingredients in a food processor to make a meal (do not process into flour, keep it with a texture).  While processing, the dry ingredients will mix together nicely.  Slowly add water to make a paste or what I call a seed pate.  Do not make it too runny.  The mixture will begin to resemble egg yokes.

Pour the seed pate into a bowl and add the following ingredients:

  • chopped tomatoes
  • chopped red pepper
  • cilantro
  • green onions
  • dash of cayenne
  • paprika
  • diced mushrooms
  • fresh basil
  • fresh cilantro
  • shredded carrot
  • 1/4 avocado (sliced)

You do not have to add so many ingredients, I just got carried away! (smile)  Scoop out your breakfast scramble with an ice cream scoop on top of the spinach leaves and the avocado slices.  It is very pretty, and tastes good too!  What I enjoyed the most was not only did it taste great, it was soooo different.  People tend to think to agree to eat raw food is to sentence them to a plate of lettuce… for life.  This dish amazed me on how far Raw Food has come and how truly talented and creative Raw Food chefs are.

I want to take a moment to point out the staple in this breakfast.  Raw sunflower seeds.  Did you know sunflower seeds are incredibly rich sources of many essential minerals?  Calcium, iron, manganese, zinc, magnesium, selenium, and copper are especially concentrated in sunflower seeds.  Many of these minerals have a vital role in bone mineralization, red blood cell production, enzyme synthesis, hormone production, as well as regulation of cardiac and skeletal muscle activities.  And that is just ONE of the benefits!

Now the real deal… The breakfast scramble was very tasty, however I would not have it again for breakfast.  I am not the type that will eat left over pizza for breakfast.  Nor will I get up the day after Thanksgiving and eat a plate of dinner food at breakfast.  I eat breakfast food for breakfast.  The breakfast scramble tasted more like a delicious “different” salad so I packed it for lunch.  I did finish what I had made for breakfast even though my body was screaming for a Green Smoothie or for my Raw Food Fruit and Nut cereal but I had made the scramble and I was out of time.  I am going to try this once more for breakfast, since that is what it is supposed to be.  I found a recipe for a raw food bacon, made with eggplant.  The recipe was from a cookbook I bought around 2004 called, “How We All Went Raw.”  I was not ready for the idea of eggplant bacon back then, but I am ready now and plan to try it by this weekend.  Raw Food breakfast scramble and eggplant bacon… you see what I mean when I say, raw food has come a long way?!

I will keep you posted on how it turns out.  I don’t need variety, I seem to be a same place, same thing type of girl, but I am keeping an open mind to trying new things and sharing my findings, good or bad.  I will do a video on this breakfast scramble, but I think I am going to keep it more for an “eggless” egg salad instead of a “no egg” breakfast scramble.  We shall see!
