Non-Slimy Chia Seed Pudding

Want a nutrient dense breakfast that takes under 2 minutes to make INCLUDING batching breakfasts for the week!? Look no further. I've been making this simple recipe on repeat, and there are so many variations that it’s hard to get sick of it!

Chia seeds are a superfood high in fiber, antioxidants, protein, omega 3's (they have more than salmon gram for gram!), and calcium (higher amount gram for gram than most dairy products).

Most recipes have you soak them but I don't love their texture after they absorb liquids (hence the title, non-slimy!), so here's my version:

  • 3TB chia seeds

  • 1TB cacao

  • 1 cup non dairy milk (the creaminess of coconut milk is great in this)

  • Optional: 1 date or 1/2 TB maple syrup, or throw berries on top to sweeten

  • Optional: 1TB of organic peanut butter and a scoop of collagen to add more protein and gut perks (plus who doesn’t love peanut butter and chocolate?).

  • Simply throw everything in a blender for a minute until it's mixed and store in the fridge until you’re ready for it.

This takes such little time to make yet keeps you full for hours. It’s also easy to transport (just throw it in a mason jar or small tupperware) so you can bring it to work and know you’ll have a healthy and filling breakfast or snack easily at your fingertips that will keep your blood sugar and energy levels steady.

Let me know if you give it a try and which variations you make!

Cinco de Mayo Recipe Roundup

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo and the beginning of a season of holidays and vacations where we can tend to overdo it. This may come in the form of overeating refined sugar and processed foods, imbibing in a little too much booze that can be filled with lots of additives, or simply overeating in general which happens a lot in social situations.
