7 Raw Food Breakfast Ideas That You Can Make In Less Than 5 Minutes
How often have you heard your mom yelling at you for not even looking at your breakfast when you were a teenager? You probably heard it the same number of times as the phrase – breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Do you believe in this?
Let me remind you of one exam day when you forgot to eat your breakfast and passed out in the classroom, or that one day when you got dizzy on the bus because you were in such a hurry that morning, so you forgot to eat. Of course, breakfast is essential, if not the most important meal you take each day. But, of course, what you eat for breakfast is of equal importance, too.
Many people have decided to switch to a raw diet and share many health benefits. But, what exactly is considered raw food? Whenever you choose to eat something as it is fresh, it is raw food. This includes all the freshness you can get from fruits and veggies, which are the most obvious way to start eating a raw diet. Moreover, food is marked as raw when you cook it at a low temperature, so not above 115 F, to be more precise. When you are cooking food in this way, it will still keep its nutrients and enzymes to keep you healthy.
By eating raw food, you will have more energy, your digestion will improve, your skin will glow, and you will generally feel better in so many other ways.
You are probably scratching your head by now, thinking about where to start making a breakfast plan and start feeling better immediately, but don’t worry. Once you get to know a few recipes and food combinations, you will fall in love with this type of diet and crave more raw food ideas. And I know what your next question is.

You don’t want your first meal to be the most stressful, correct? Here are some marvelous raw breakfast ideas shared to you by experienced people who have already walked in your shoes.
