Vegan and Raw Breakfast Banana Pumpkin and Almond Butter Boat

As someone who is always on the go, a fulfilling breakfast is very important to me. During the week, it is easy to let breakfast fall on low of your priority list but taking just a few minutes to have something to eat can really make a difference in your day.
