Sunday Morning Raw Reset

Do you have reset day? How about a reset date? Truth be told, we are all time travelers and seasonal creatures. Back to school signals something to us as does the start of a new year or the beginning of another week.


Apple-Lemon Breakfast Bowl

My traditional reset has been on Sundays which probably has something to do with growing up in a Christian household but this year, I’m working to change that up so that everyday will be reset; a chance to refocus, aim higher, and maintain clarity around my intentions. I do that by thinking about the previous day, looking forward to the opportunities of the next 24 hours and asking for help because none of it is accomplished in my own strength.

Today one of the ways that I’m doing this is with a terrific Apple-Lemon Breakfast Bowl modified from Forks over Knives. Admittedly high in sugar, the 11 grams of fiber in each serving is really filling and perfect for a scorching hot Arizona day. And the other perfect part is that all but the cinnamon are local ingredients – reducing food miles and keeping it close to home.

Apple-Lemon Breakfast Bowl

Forks over Knives credits Rebecca Michaelides with this recipe
Serves 2
  • 4 or 5 medium apples of any variety
  • 5 – 6 pitted dates
  • juice of one lemon
  • 6 pecan halves
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

5 simple ingredients

Core the apples and cut into large pieces. Place the dates, half of the lemon juice, pecans, cinnamon, and three quarters of the apple in the bowl of a food processor. Puree until finely ground, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add the remainder of the apples and lemon juice and pulse until the apples are shredded and the date mixture is evenly distributed.

Eat and reset. When do you reset your routine?

    From the picture, I was expecting grains of some type. This sounds really delicious. Maybe a little vanilla yogurt or a splash of cream on top?

    Yum! I have been adding more fiber to my diet as well. I thought your breakfast was some kind of oatmeal, but was pleasantly surprised when I read the ingredients. It’s perfect for these hot summer mornings.

  3. Sounds very refreshing, Tammy. Maybe I’m in need of a “reset” since I feel like I’m in a bit of a rut. 😀

  4. Reset. I’d love to. And the recipe looks simple and delicious. I may have to try it. I do usually need a little extra at breakfast, so “oddly filling” seems a very attractive proposition.

  5. This sounds delicious! I do my reset at night, just before going to sleep. Finding at least one thing in my day to be grateful for 🙂

  6. I think this looks like a wonderful breakfast but perfect for dessert as well. As you’ve replied in one of the comments, I too would like to try this with coconut yoghurt xx

  7. this looks so easy…will surely try. thanks
