Going raw is a great way to make sure you’re getting the purest, most potent nutrients from the foods you eat. But aside from munching on a piece of whole fruit or crunching on uncooked veggies, how can you add more raw foods to your day? This simple seed and fruit “crumble” makes a satisfying snack as is, or try tucking some into a parfait or piling on your plate along with fresh fruit for breakfast. It’s the perfect combination of crunchy and chewy textures, with plenty of natural sweetness from spices, pure maple syrup and coconut oil.
You might know fennel for its flavorful seeds, often embedded in breads (think: rye) and sausages.
