Raw Oat Breakfast and Back to Juicing

I tried Kimberly Snyder’s Raw Rolled Oat Cereal a few mornings ago, from her new book. It’s similar to Ani Phyo’s Basic Sprouted Oatmeal (from this cookbook) except that it is simpler and requires few ingredients. It took no time to prepare, if you remember to soak the oat groats the night before. It was definitely filling! I have to say though, I prefer Ani Phyo’s version due to the extra flavour you get by adding nuts, dried fruit, etc.

A couple changes: I would reduce the amount of salt for next time, down to maybe a pinch. I also used wildflower honey that I picked up from the farmer’s market, instead of stevia because I can’t stand the aftertaste. I finished it off with a drizzle of a bit more honey as well πŸ™‚

I also made a small change in my kitchen today, a change that I think will pay off in the end. I removed our coffee maker off the counter and switched it with my juicer which was hiding in the kitchen cupboards. We rarely use the coffee maker (the husband always buys his coffee, and please don’t cringe, I love the taste of instant coffee). I love to juice but sometimes I forget about it because the juicer is hidden away.

So to kick up more juicing habits, here’s what I juiced today: beets (I LOVE beets in my juices), celery, apple, pears, kale, romaine lettuce, carrots, and 1/2 peeled lemon. Delicious and bright red!

What’s your favourite juice combination?
