Eat Your Oatmeal Raw, It's much Healthier for You

Cooking your grains will destroy enzymes, get the most out of your grains and benefit from the fiber in its natural state. Check out my raw stores on my No Bonez site or call me directly to order Really Raw Oatmeal, I have a direct source for all things raw. Chelly 240.498.9639

Raw Oatmeal

1-2 cups Organic Rolled Oats
1/2 tsp - 1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tbsp maple syrup, honey, agave or date syrup
1 sliced banana, or 1/2 cup blueberries, or strawberries
Milk: make almond milk ( handful of almonds and 3 cups water), banana milk (one banana with water, sweetener (optional))

Make the almond or banana milk first in Vita Mix, pour over oats, add cinnamon and sweetener, stir, add fresh fruit, allow oats to absorb milk and enjoy!

Almond Milk

Soak almonds over night to remove enzyme inhibitors and to germinate them, try to purchase organic raw almonds. Add a handfull of almonds to the Vita Mix with about 3 cups of water, blend on high to liquefy and pour enough on your oatmeal ,use the rest in your smoothy!

Banana Milk

1 banana and 1-2 cups water, with sweetener of your choice, blend on high until smooth and creamy and enjoy!

Chelly, I just took a class with you at the Common Market. Thank you for that : ) One of the questions I never posed to you...where is your raw source for oatmeal? Almost all oat groats and rolled oats, organic included are steam processed b/c they oxidize and become rancid quickly after hulling. Debbie the bulk supplier at Common Market doesn't have a source. I fed my kids "raw" oatmeal for a month and I was killing all of our digestion. I soon learned it wasn't raw. Just to inform you, your readers, and ask your for thoughts.
Thanks, Kerry
