Guest Post: Day 11 Raw Food Challenge + Hearty Breakfast Bowl Recipe

Since I am away from home and just lounging around with Gramma today, my menu hasn’t been too creative.  I will say that bringing your own Raw Nuts, Medjool Dates, Raw Almond Butter and some Raw Coconut Nectar has made it possible to make treats and meals that even tempted my Omnivorous Family. It has also enabled me to keep my protein intake high.

Generally you can get salads, veggies and fruit anywhere you go. It’s the Raw Nuts and specialty items that are a bit harder to track down. So keep that in mind when traveling.

This morning I made another Nutmeal breakfast bowl. I decided that these Nutmeal breakfast remind me of a cross between Muesli and Oatmeal. I happen to like both of those things so it’s a win-win situation.


Raw Vegan Nectarine Oatmeal


Nutmeal Recipe:

Apricots (2 pitted and chopped)
Nectarine (1 pitted and chopped)
Blueberries (1/4 cup)
Walnuts (1 Cup)
Coconut (1/2 cup dried and shredded)
Ginger (2 inch hunk peeled)
Cinnamon (1 tsp)
Raw Coconut Nectar (1 TBS)

Threw in the Food Processor until it was roughly chopped. Divided into 2 bowls, drizzled almond milk and coconut syrup over.




Gramma insisted we go to lunch again today. I ordered a Green Salad and a side of Guacamole for lunch. There was salsa on the table already so I used that for the dressing.



I napped a lot yesterday and today. The road trip took a lot out of me. When I woke up from my nap today I made a big bowl of “ice cream”.

Frozen Green Figs (5)
Banana (1 it would be best if frozen)
Almond Butter (2 TBS)
Cinnamon (1 tsp)
Almond Milk (1/2 cup)
Raw Coconut Nectar (2 TBS)
Blueberries (1/2 cup)


Raw Vegan Nice Cream

First put the Almond Milk, Cinnamon,  Coconut Nectar and Almond Butter in the Blender and blend ingredients together.

Then add the Figs and Banana and blend til creamy smooth.

Divide into 2 serving dishes and top with Blueberries.


Nice Cream



Gramma thought it was pretty good.

    Did you eat only 1 bowl of the Nutmeal or over the course of the day did you eat both bowls? For those who don’t digest nuts well, what would you suggest as a substitution?


    • Christine on May 23, 2014 at 9:38 pm

      Kimberly, a great substitute for nuts that I like to use are dried mulberries andthey are lower in fat too. You can get them at any health food store or even order them online through Navitas Naturals. I will let Heather answer the other question. 🙂

      Hi Ka. I only ate 1 bowl and gave the other to my uncle. In general though I would eat the entire thing. If you are more easily able to digest nut butters you could use fruit and nut butter but I wouldn’t do it in the food processor. I would just dice the fruit and stir in the nut butter. If nuts are just no good at all then Christine’s suggestion of the dried mulberries is great.

    Are you eating 80/10/10 or what type???

      Hi Cheryl,

      While Heather, our guest blogger, is joining us for a month in eating a raw vegan diet and sharing her recipes I eat a mostly lower fat raw food diet like 811, but I do enjoy my indulgences once in a while too!
