For breakfast, I like to have a little something besides the required Meuseli with Fuit (more on Meuseli later). Here's what I've come up with that's healthy, compatible with the diet, and appealing to me in the morning.
Option 1 - Mini-Veggie Sandwich
I sometimes make a mini sandwich out of one piece of Ezekiel bread (bread made from sprouted grains, seeds, and legumes, found in the freezer of your Health Food Store or larger groceries), Dijon mustard and homegrown alfalfa sprouts. Good also with thinly sliced cucumber and tomato.
Option 2- Creamy Spiced Raw Buckwheat Cereal
Okay, this gets a little weird for the uninitiated, but it's quite yummy when you get used to it. The concept is from the raw foods people, and the seasonings are mine. It is very, very healthy, as buckwheat is highly recommemded by Dr. Budwig, and it's raw, which means it has loads of good enzymes.
Take about 1/4 cup of raw buckwheat groats (from the health food store or order online), and soak them in water overnight on the kitchen counter. Or you may soak them for just one hour in the morning, whichever is more convenient. In the morning, put them in a mini-food processor or blender with some water. Blend for a moment, until the groats start to break up but aren't yet mushy. At this point, drain and rinse them again, quite thoroughly, using a fine gauge wire strainer. Return them to the blender, this time adding a teaspoon or so of milk, a few drops of liquid stevia (optional), a few raisins, cinnamon (a lot), ginger (a generous pinch), nutmeg (a dash), and/or allspice (a dash). Blend for a few seconds only. Pour into a dish and enjoy!
All the rinsing is because the soaking has activated the enzymes required to start the groats growing into little buckwheat seedlings. These enzymes make the buckwheat quite slimy. If you can get used to this, then do less rinsing. If you don't care for the slime factor, then follow my rinsing procedure. You can experiment with the chopping in the food processor - you may like less chopping, or none at all - you don't need to chop the groats, you can eat them whole. Or, you can grind them finely, with less liquid, and then it can resemble cookie dough. Anyway, I just love the seasonings with the chopped groats, and it's especially enjoyable knowing how healthy it is! Also, you could use the soaked buckwheat groats, rinsed in hot water,with different seasonings for lunch or dinner, much like you would season rice or noodles. Just get creative.
