Vitamin Bomb Breakfast Bowl

wpid-IMG_20140210_090744.jpg

This is one of my favorite breakfasts, especially after an evening of heavy food and over-indulgence. The combination of apples and carrots reminds me of my childhood and the coconut, pecans and honey give a sweetness and scent reminiscent of fall. Although mostly raw, this simple combination tastes so decadent, if you closed your eyes you’d swear you were eating carrot cake. Topped with plain vanilla yogurt or coconut yogurt (my new favorite thing!) this Vitamin bomb bowl  (so much vitamin A, B, C, fibre and potassium)  is quite possibly the healthiest and most delicious breakfast you could ever make under five minutes. Not to mention, no fancy machinery, juicers, blenders or shakers to clean! only a grater to wash, or rather, nonchalantly rinse. Lazybums, this ones for you!

Ingredients:

1 large carrot

1 large granny smith apple

1 tbsp honey

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp cloves

pinch of salt

3 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut

3 tbsp pecans, roughly chopped

2 tsp lemon juice

pinch of salt

How to:

  1. Shred carrot and apple manually with a stand grater and put in bowl
  2. Add spices, lemon and salt and stir
  3. Add coconut and pecans, stir once more

Serve!

So easy right?
