This protein packed, #grainfree, #fruity, #nutty and full of fiber bowl of goodness will keep you going all morning!
Looking for something new and different for breakfast? Tired of the same ole, same ole? Well here is my EZ – PZ morning go to. It starts the night before with my Chia Pudding staple.
Having it made up the night before, makes this deliciousness so quick and easy. Plus soaking the chia seeds overnight makes them full of soluble fiber to aid in optimal digestion and assimilation of the anti-inflammatory omega 3’s and complete proteins.
There are a million ways to enjoy this breakfast bowl.
- Get creative.
- Determine what you like.
- Look at what you have in the fridge. Here I have organic berries (I always do organic berries because they are on the Dirty Dozen list), and green apple, plus some dried cranberries for added tartness.)
- You can use any combination of nuts and seeds. Be mindful that nuts can be hard to digest and too many nuts…. makes you nuts. I use mostly sunflower and pumpkin seeds (lower fat, easier to digest) with a few pecan halves for added nutty flavor.
- Top with shredded unsweetened coconut for added texture and yumminess.
- Sweet tooth? Drizzle with maple syrup to entice the kiddo’s.
“A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down.”
This can be served warm or cold whatever you are in the mood for. During the winter months, I like to make my chia pudding on the thicker side, so I can scoop some into a small pot and add more nut milk to thin it out while it warms on the stove. You can also reheat in the microwave.
You can’t get this one wrong. Play with it. Make it taste good. Give yourself permission to experiment.
Let it nourish you.
