First Meal

Most people equate first meal with breakfast. Breaking the fast of sleeping eight to ten hours. I’ve never been one for eating first thing in the morning and now that I am implementing an 18 hour intermittent fasting plan into my lifestyle breaking my fast later in my day makes sense for me.

What you eat for your first meal will create the kind of day you will have. Since being on a sometimes raw vegan high fat (keto) plan to having a cooked first meal of flax seeds, essential mix, protein bowl, I’m creating the desired impact for my day.

Think about it for a moment

What’s in your first meal/breakfast? Sugary cereal (insulin rush and cravings for more) , a venti vanilla latte (insulin overload and belly fat ignition), a plain coffee with butter or coconut oil (pure acid), or how about that bottle of cola (rust remover and weapon of mass destruction). These are all acidic and will shave years off your life.

Having a first meal that’s alkaline and filled with nutritional ingredients helps your cells create energy by giving them what they desire most. Be good to your cells and your cells will be good to you.

You don’t always have to have a smoothie for your first meal, but with the limitless combinations of veggies and fruits you’ll never run out of ideas. You can have a nice warming porridge as your first meal that’s vegan, plant based, high fat (keto), grain free, and good protein.

    That Moment of Truth

    Over the weekend, I was asked, “What’s in your fridge?” Many people have asked me what we eat when we’re not fasting. Like we eat exotic foods or we have sparse meals. We don’t eat exotic, outlandish, or even costly meals. Salads don’t cost much and because we’ve been doing the intermittent fasting cycle on a regular basis, we’re not as hungry as we used to be. This is my moment of truth

    First Meal 

    It’s always a raw, alkaline veggie smoothie because it starts our bodies off in an alkaline state. 

    Turmeric Carrot Pain Relieving Smoothie

    •  1 kale leaf chopped
    • 2 carrots, chopped
    • 1 stalk celery, chopped
    • 1 little nub of turmeric or 1/2 teaspoon ground
    • 1 cup strawberries 
    • 1 Tablespoon Essential Seven Seed Mix
    • 1 Tablespoon Brain Octane or coconut oil
    • 1 Tablespoon organic raw virgin unrefined coconut oil
    • 1 scoop Warrior Blend protein powder from Sunwarrior 

    Whirl it together and enjoy


    Purple Dream Smoothie 

    • 1 stalk kale or a 1/2 cup wheatgrass
    • 1 purple carrot 
    • 1/2 cup chopped purple cabbage 
    • 1 cup blackberries 
    • 1/2 cup blueberries 
    • 1 Tablespoon Essential Seven Seed Mix
    • 1 Tablespoon Brain Octane or coconut oil 
    • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
    • 1 scoop Warrior Blend Pea and Hemp protein 

    Whirl and enjoy!

    Then an hour later I have a cup of vegan high fat coffee or tea. I depends on what I’m in the mood for. High fat coffee? What’s that? 
    I add 1 Tablespoon of coconut oil and two tablespoons of real coconut cream (only ingredient is coconut). 

    My last meal of the day is usually a salad, but sometimes I will make some raw sunflower sweet potato taco meat and make wraps with lettuce leaves. I really like my White Gaspacho, too.
