Breathe Less, Eat Less (Raw Food) Recipe: Buckwheat Porridge

Here I embark on a series of posts to show raw food is not just lettuce and salads (tasty as they can be).  This is a recipe from previous Art of Life Retreats menus.  See our website: www.artofliferetreats, but more importantly, see you in Bali for the retreat April 5-11 2015!

Buckwheat Porridge
1 cup of soaked buckwheat (put in a bowl and fill water to cover all)
1/2 cup of soaked sunflower seeds
1 apple
coconut oil
almond milk

Rinse the soaked buckwheat thoroughly through a strainer or nut milk bag until there is no 'red' water or foam left.
Put the buckwheat in a bowl and mix it with cinnamon, sunflower seeds, honey and coconut oil.
Put the grated apple on top and serve with almond milk.

Mindful eating tips:

  • look with your eyes;
  • smell with your nose;
  • perhaps touch with your finger;
  • taste with the tip of the tongue;
  • chew each mouthful thoroughly (this should take a long time, during which you can reflect on where and how this food has come to you);
  • swallow;
  • smile;
  • repeat!
Hope to see you in classes, retreats and workshops in Canberra, Sri Lanka or Bali soon!

    The meaning of this is that you actually burn fat by consuming Coconut Fats (including coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).
