This weekend, I offered a raw superfood demo at Shanti Retreat as well as a conscious cooking workshop. My intention was to educate and inspire people to include more whole foods in the diet and to increase the amount of raw, enzyme rich foods and supplements.
Here are some highlights and recipes from the demo!
Raw Soaked Muesli with goji berries
Combine any amounts of the following ingredients (according to preferences and what’s in your pantry!) and soak overnight with double the amount of liquid, either almond, coconut or soy milk. In the morning, add fresh berries and sliced bananas and more milk if needed.
Pumpkin or sunflower seeds
Dried Fruit (goji berries, dates, cranberries, raisins, figs, apricots)
almond, coconut or soy milk
