Healthy eating can be easy and affordable. What we're loving as the seasons start to change is the hearty, protein-packed buckwheat that despite its name, is gluten-free. 

By using buckwheat as a base every morning, we're able to create delicious, varied and healthy breakfast bowls throughout the week. Our energy is sustained and hunger satisfied right through until lunchtime... when sometimes we simply create another bowl. :)

Fun Fact about Buckwheat: Did you know that buckwheat is a great source of magnesium (an oh so important mineral) and has this cool power to enhance the antioxidant abilities of vitamin C.  So when you add vitamin C with buckwheat, you get a mega boost of vitamin C's super powers!  It's also full of fiber so when you combine any flavor of PowerBlend with buckwheat, you get a lasting and even blood sugar burn.  Of course this supports your body to burn fat for energy rather than store it!  Here's how to get buckwheat into your diet - just in time for back-to-school. 

 

Buckwheat Breakfast Bowls:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup buckwheat grouts
  • 2-3 dates or figs
  • 1/2 cup of almond (or coconut) milk -- unsweetened

You'll need:

  • A mesh strainer
  • Blender - a Bullet or Ninja - this does not require a Vitamix

Soak buckwheat overnight in a glass container with a few dates thrown in. Note that the buckwheat will be quite slimy after soaking, so rinse through a mesh strainer with cold water.

Add only buckwheat to the blender with 1/2 cup of non-dairy milk.

Blend.

You'll be left with a thick paste-like cereal and depending on the consistency you like - play with the amount of milk you add. 

Now it's time to create - add: 

  • a handful of fresh/seasonal fruit - berries, peaches, bananas
  • cut-up citrus... remember that tip about Vitamin C?
  • handful of chopped nuts - walnuts or almonds
  • top with a granola blend or raisins, cranberries or oats
  • 2-3 tablespoons of either Goji Coconut, Original or Maple Cinnamon PowerBlends for even MORE fiber, omega3s and protein

Then ENJOY!
