I hear it all the time…But Grrrrrrace, I don’t have time for breakfast! No excuses with this recipe!

Today’s super easy raw, vegan breakfast on-the-go provides essential fatty acids, protein, zinc, calcium, vit C and fibre to energize your body as the day evolves. Chia seeds are amazing for detoxification, elimination, and providing sustainable energy. If you don’t already have them in your cupboard, THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE GRACIOUS LIVING MUST HAVE! go buy them now at your health food store, wholefoods, or buy them on amazon.

So basically I just looked to see what I had in my cupboard and threw everything in a bowl, and with a little bit of practice and confidence, you can do that, too! Gracious Living recipes are always dairy-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, heat-free and hassle-free. but never taste-free. (to learn more about CHIA and another recipe, click here)

  3. I am new to this type of lifestyle and unfortunately, waited until I was diagnosed with cancer to start eating healthy and reading all of the benefits of incorporating a raw, veggie, vegan diet. I am on day 2 and so far so good. Food is delicious and there are so many varieties of preparation that I cannot see getting bored with the food choices. The most important component of eating healthy, is ridding your cupboards of all the processed not so healthy foods and having an ample supply of what you should be eating. This way you are not tempted to resort back to back eating habits. I met Grace during her visit to M.D. Anderson in Orlando, Florida where she spent several weeks offering classes to patients, families, and team members on eating healthy. She is so knowledgeable and really cares about the people she is educating. I scheduled a session where she helped me shop at a Whole Foods Store. What an enlightening experience, I left with a cartful of non dairy, raw, vegan foods and was on my way to healthy living. Grace you are amazing and I will be ever grateful for the time you spent with me, and also helping on my journey with battling cancer and incorporating a better lifestyle. I will keep you all posted on my progress.

    Grace, you are the BEST!!!!
