I started taking vitamins recently. It is a whole life revolution. I thought I was iron deficient or just exhausted, but, as it turns out, my instinct to buy a whole food multivitamin was right. I don’t really care what the recent studies say about how vitamins don’t work. I am radiantly happy with this small adjustment to my diet. Oh, yes, and now that I take vitamins, I have to eat a more substantial breakfast.
Why not make breakfast another creative superfood?
While it stands to reason that walnuts are a “health food”, lately they are being touted as the “brain food” super tonic, and I am not surprised. After all, they look like a brain. And, my Russian best friend from college would remind me that in her country, you ate walnuts to be a genius.
So, this morning, we are whipping up a much more pleasant way to eat fruit and nuts. As ice cream!
Walnut Cinnamon Brain Food Ice Cream (dairy-free, gluten-free, Paleo & SCD)
Just put a cup of raw walnuts, two bananas frozen in hunks (if you have some ripe banana freeze them now and make this in a few hours!), 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp pure vanilla and a shake of sea salt into a sturdy blender.
Add a touch of ice water if your blender won’t process this.
For an extra-great breakfast, add cold organic espresso to this instead of water.
Top with walnuts and some honey to taste. & Enjoy! xoxo Dana
