This is not only my favorite breakfast, but also one that is choc full of super-foods and antioxidants. After being on the road for a few weeks, I couldn’t wait to get back into my kitchen to make a huge batch of my yummy granola and homemade almond milk. The following breakfast will stave off your hunger (so helps with weight-loss), until lunch, as it’s packed with plant protein, grains, tons of fiber and super-foods – soooo delicious too!
*Maca’s reputation as a powerful enhancer of strength and stamina and as a libido-fertility herb goes back more than 500 years, and today it is gaining worldwide attention for its effectiveness.
Homemade Almond Milk
Yield: about 4 cups almond milk
Put the almonds in a glass bowl and cover with 4 cups water. Refrigerate overnight. Drain, rinse, and put in the blender with 3 cups fresh water. Blend until smooth. Strain through a cheesecloth-lined strainer into a pitcher.
To sweeten, return the almond milk to the blender and blend with 3 or 4 dates that have been soaked in water for a couple of hours.
