Breakfast .......................
More Than Quinoa Cereal
1 cup quinoa
¼ hemp milk
1 Tbs sesame seed butter
1 Tbs raw, organic honey
1 tsp cinnamon
Heat water to boil
Pour quinoa into boiling water, cover and turn stove to simmer for 15 -20 min

Raw, Vegan Blueberry Pancakes
Start planning ahead for your weekend breakfast. Here are the most delicious raw, vegan pancakes that only
take minutes to prepare (but then time to dehydrate so you have to preplan).
½ cup flax seeds (ground)
1 cup flax seeds (not ground)
3 Tbs coconut oil melted
1/4 cup agave or your sweetener of choice
½ cup water
1 cup blueberries or other berries
1/4 cup coconut (unsweetened, dried)
Mix all ingredients. Dehydrate at 118 for two hours, flip and then dehydrate for 30 minutes at 114. Makes 5,
5 inch pancakes. If you don’t have a dehydrator, you can most likely cook in the oven at a low temp.
Snacks .......................
Some people do not need to snack at all. If you are eating 3 balanced, low-glycemic meals a day with adequate
protein, carbohydrates and fats, your blood sugar will begin to stabilize, your cravings will disappear and you
may find you do not need to snack either. Your breakfast should be enough to sustain your appetite until
lunch, your lunch big enough to last you until dinner and your dinner should be a lighter meal so your body
can rest and digest through the evening. If you do feel you need a snack, drink a large glass of water first. You
may actually be dehydrated. Wait 10 min. If you are still hungry, here are a few ideas for you.
1⁄4 cup of raw sunflower or pumpkin seeds
