Raw Food Chop Recipe

raw chop recipe

Parrot food can be very nutritious with just a little time. Depending on ingredients, you either have to soak and cook a soak mix or you can just soak and NOT cook. Not cooking allows for an easy raw food recipe that is packed with nutrition. Today, we will be making this raw food chop recipe which is not only nutritious, healthy, and natural but so easy to do.

First of all, a little bit of science. 

As we all know, seeds have all the nutrients necessary to grow a plant. When we soak seeds or grains, in water the seeds start absorbing the water. The intake of water signals the seed to use its stored energy for growth through the activation of enzymes. 

In other words, the water intake releases large amounts of nutrients for the seed to become a plant. 

For this noncooking recipe, we are going to be using nature and science to create a nutritious meal for our companion birds and parrots. 

First of all, we need a list of seeds and grains we can use as a soak mix. We can use all or some mixture of these grains/seeds.

raw chop mix


Rinse your soak mix a few times.  Then add three times the amount of cold water than your soak mix and let it soak overnight. Your soak mix is going to absorb the water so make sure it is submerged all the time. Add more water if needed. 

In the morning, rinse well. Add cut-up veggies and fruit to the soak mix. I also added greens which were chopped in the food processor. 

Mix in some healthy seeds like chia and flax. Mix in some spices of our choice. 

Mix and serve. 

PS: For any leftover soak mix, you can start the sprouting process by rinsing the soak mix three times a day, until it starts to sprout. Parrot sprouting is ideal however not necessary for this recipe. Sprouting seeds for birds provide all the essential amino acids.
