Superfood Bowls 5


Coconut Chlorella Bowl

Coconut Chlorella Bowl

I’ve got a new favorite creation on my raw superfood journey that cuts down kitchen time, meets my body’s “NOW” nutrition requirements, and tastes great every time.

I think these Superfood Bowls will also empower you to find your own creative nature in your kitchen, as well as be even more in tune with your body’s wisdom.

The basics of Superfood Bowls are simple:

1. Get a bowl

2. Add some dry superfoods

3. Add some wet superfoods (fats and/or sweetener)

4. Stir and eat on the spot

It might seem like cereal to you, or as my raw friend calls it, “goo”.  That’s why I just call it a superfood bowl.  If you don’t label it like anything you’ve ever eaten before, you can focus more on how it feels in the moment and enjoy the flavors, nutrition and satisfied full feeling.

Here are some recipes to get you started

Note that these measurements are not exact – more like guidelines.  I use the teaspoon I’m going to eat with to measure the superfoods into the bowl and stir.  You can always adjust to your desired tastes.

Also, every superfood bowl I make starts with hemp seeds and blue-green algae.  That’s because both of these superfoods are high in protein, essential fatty acids, and other micro-nutrients and minerals.

More Superfood Bowl Options

Here are some more ideas to feed your creativity

  • Add more hemp seeds if you are feeling really hungry (they are very filling).  Adjust the wet ingredients to accommodate the added hemp seeds.
  • Other sweeteners besides Agave can be fruits: bananas mashed in are awesome, dates chopped up, apple slices, soaked goji berries or raisins, or any other fruit you love.
  • Other fats besides coconut oil can be peanut butter, tahini (sesame butter), almond butter, avocado, sesame oil (for an Asian flavor), or water (to turn it into a paste)

 

Other Superfoods you might consider adding:

Vitamin B Complex – slightly tangy flavor, increases energy, improves mood

Vitamin C Powder – slightly tart flavor, improves immune system and skin

Salivarius Probiotic – empty capsule into the dry ingredients

Vitamineral Green Powder – mild green flavor can be used in conjunction with or instead of Blue-Green Algae for huge variety of greens

Sun Fire Salt – for added mineralization – works great in a sweet or savory bowl

Mesquite Powder – cinnamon chai flavor works great with cacao, lots of minerals

Lucuma Powder – sweet and malty flavor great with sweet bowls, high in iron and b vitamins

Bee Pollen – sweet and floral flavor gives any bowl a little crunch

Warrior Protein Powder – for even more protein and energy.  You may need to add more fats to get this to mix well.

Cacao Nibs – great for crunch and magnesium

Walnuts – high in Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids which help reduce inflammation

Spices – curry, cumin, sage, chipotle, and cayenne are often craved for savory tastes.  cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla are often craved for sweet tastes.  I’ll talk more about spices in another post soon … stay tuned! 🙂

This is such a high area for creativity, please comment and share what superfood bowl creations you make that you enjoy.  I’m always ready to try something new and share it around!

Sweet & Chocolate Superfood Bowl

Stir all the dry ingredients together first, then add the agave and coconut oil and stir until it’s a wet and mushy goo.  If it’s not wet enough, add more coconut oil and/or agave.

 

Cheesy & Savory Superfood Bowl

Stir all the dry ingredients together, then add the avocado and mix or mash it into the dry ingredients.  You can add water if the avocado doesn’t pick up all the dry ingredients, or add a little lemon juice for an upgraded guacamole flavor.

 

Upgraded Apples & Peanut Butter Superfood Bowl

One of my childhood snacks that I often return to when I don’t know what to eat is apples sliced and dipped into peanut butter.  Here’s an upgrade on that snack that turns it into an even more nutritious snack.

* Get high quality peanut butter that is freshly ground and/or organic without any additives (like sugars).  Real peanut butter may have the peanut oils separated on top so you’ll have to mix the oil back into the peanut butter with a knife or spoon.

Stir the dry ingredients together. Add in the peanut butter and get the dry ingredients stick to it.  You can then either dip the apple slices into the peanut butter mix or chop the apple into the bowl and eat everything with a spoon (I usually do the latter).
