This is my version of an everyday raw breakfast based on guidance from my friend Rebecca Michaelides, who is my go-to source for healthy raw cuisine. We worked together when she was a course instructor for the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies, and her diet was a little mysterious to me when I was first getting to know her. I knew she didn’t rely on loads of nuts in her everyday diet, but that was the only kind of raw food diet I was familiar with. She’s always been kind enough to satisfy my curiosity, and I’m very grateful to her for expanding my ideas about what raw cuisine can look like and showing me how fresh, light, and delicious something as simple as apples can become.
