Featured Recipe: The Wake Bowl
- By Ashley E. Bailey, Health Coach
This recipe was born out of me having a couple of nights filled with some heavy food that my system isn't really use to eating and I was feeling like I needed something that was cleansing yet fulfilling and satisfying to my large morning appetite.
I've continued to make this brekkie meal over and over - experimenting with different fruits, herbs and spices but the version below is by far my favorite.
Ladies and Gentlemen, meet The WAKE Bowl - I am deeming this my signature dish.
1 T chia seeds
1 C unsweetened almond milk (carrageenan free like Whole Food's 356 brand)
Small handful of spinach (torn into small pieces)
1 Banana, sliced
Small handful of raspberries
Small handful of blueberries
Small handful of goji berries
5-8 cubes of pineapple
Sprinkle of cardamom
1/8 t fresh ginger
1 leaf of fresh basil (torn into small pieces)
2 T Coconut meat/flakes
1 T hemp seeds
Soak the chia seeds in the almond milk (in the fridge) for at least an hour or as long as overnight. Add in all the other ingredients (I do in the order listed so that it looks pretty ;)), give it a stir and enjoy!
Yes this will WAKE you up!!! Enjoy (with some detoxifying fresh green juice! ;) ) Check out more of my tips here.
