A traditional American breakfast is a huge, heavy meal; full of starch, fat, and sugar. As a raw vegan, it can be challenging to participate in breakfast with family and friends who have not yet embraced a living foods lifestyle. This recipe book bridges that gap and provides a new way to enjoy American breakfast classics. Start off the meal with the Western Omelette, which brings together green peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, and thyme to create a mouth-watering flavor of a diner classic. Accompany the omelette with Pancakes, Southern Biscuits and Gravy with Zucchini Bacon, Pumpkin Seed Sausage, or Cheesy Hashbrowns. These dishes take some advance preparation, but can be stored for the entire week.
All of the recipes in this book are dairy-free, gluten-free, oil-free, and salt-free. They are designed to be experimented with, and the ingredients should be adjusted to taste. Make sure to sample everything as you go, and use only half of the amount of each spice first, so that you can fine-tune the final dish by holding back on the rest of the spice, or adding more, as fits your particular tastes. If you choose to keep the dishes salt-free, you can enhances the flavor by using onion powder, garlic powder, lemon juice, and/or fresh herbs such as chives, parsley, cilantro, basil, and arugula.
