Berry Bowl | Raederle's Raw Recipe

Berry Bowl

  • ½ cup oat groats, soaked overnight
  • ½ cup spinach, chard or kale (use spinach if you're new to raw foods)
  • ¼ cup frozen cranberries (optional, use less if you're sensitive to astringent/sour flavors)
  • ¼ cup frozen blueberries
  • ¼ cup frozen raspberries (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced (adjust to your taste for ginger)
  • ½ cup dried apricots, soaked overnight
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon (use more if you love cinnamon)
  • 2 pinches nutmeg (use more if you love nutmeg)
  • 1 apple or 1 pear (use two if using small apples)
  • ½ lemon, juiced (optional; preserves freshness and adds a tarter flavor)
  1. Rinse soaked oat groats with drinking water.
  2. Put soaked oat groats into your food processor with dried apricots.
  3. Blend until consistent, but chunky.
  4. Add Brussels sprouts and spices and blend for ten to thirty seconds.
  5. Add frozen berries and pulse seven times.
  6. Cut your apple or pear into pieces roughly and add to food processor.
  7. Juice one lemon over the food processor.
  8. Pulse six to sixteen times, aiming for pieces no larger than ½-inch on a side.
  9. Garnish with a few fresh berries. Mint leaves are also a pretty addition.

When reading, the most incredible things I've ever learned came from stories. Stories are more memorable. They create images and time-lines in our minds. They give us all the background information that lead up to a great moment, a great realization, a great break-through.
In reality, we only truly grasp ("grok") something through personal experience. We can not add to our experience through reading dry data. But we really can and do add to our experience with stories. The more detailed, authentic, and dynamic the story, the more there is for us to learn from it. The more it resonates with us and touches us, the more we retain what we've learned.
It is because of this that I'm writing my own life as a series of autobiographical novels.
