What's For Breakfast?

At our house we endeavor to eat a nutrient dense vegan diet.  We do this for health reasons of course.  We want to be healthy and to prevent diet related illnesses.....like diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and cancer, and many of the autoimmune diseases
and inflammatory conditions.  There is much scientific proof to validate that a nutrient dense vegan diet has this effect and that this type of diet can and does reverse these conditions. I encourage you to do your own research!  
You can start by watching a preview to the documentary, "Forks Over Knives", to get an idea the why of a vegan diet.  I highly recommend watching the full  length version of this documentary.
It just may change your life!

The picture at the top of page is my family's breakfast today.
(Cara Cara & Navel)

We usually top our fruit salad with walnuts or other nuts and/or seeds.  Hemp seeds are one of my favorite.
Just use whatever fruits you have on hand and create your own blend.

2-3 c. water
1/2 bunch of kale with stems
1/2 pineapple
2 c. blackberries
1 orange 
( I used 1/2 Cara Cara and 1/2 Navel orange)
2 T. chia seeds
2-3 T. dulse
optional~pitted dates or liquid stevia for additional sweetness

Blend thoroughly.  This made 2 quarts.  I am drinking one now and saving the other for later today or for tomorrow morning.

                                         MANGO SOFT SERVE
                                                  1 frozen banana
                                               1 c. frozen mangoes
                                              raw almond milk to blend

You can make this in a high powered blender (Vita-Mix) or a food processor. Process until smooth.
You may also freeze this for later.

Remember to be kind....use kind words.  Words have the power of life and death in them.  Bring light and life to those around you, especially your children.  Be positive and encouraging.  Negative words tend to suck the life out of those who hear them and those who are using them.  This also has an impact on your health and the health of those who are the constant recipients of the negativity.

Negativity breeds negativity......Kindness uplifts.....and don't forget to smile.

Sometimes we develop negative habits of thinking and speaking.  It is important to break these habits.
This negativity begins in the heart or mind.
First begin to recognize it and then stop and think of positive ways that you can communicate.
Pray. God desires to change us for our good, the good of those around us and for His glory.
He is All Powerful.
I hope you know Him.
