Society is always in a rush; to get to school, to get
to work. We don’t have enough time in the morning to fully get ready, let alone prepare our breakfast. But as we know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It kicks starts our metabolism and is linked to more energy and better concentration. Chia pud- ding is a quick and easy recipe that can be concocted at night and left in the refrigerator.
• 1 cup milk of choice (healthiest options: un- sweetened coconut, almond, cashew, skim milk)
• 1/4 cup chia seeds
• 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
• Sweetener of choice (honey, maple syrup, stevia,
peanut butter, pb2, etc.)
• Toppings (Nuts, berries, fruit, coconut flakes)
Stir everything together in a container and chill un- til thick. Adding the toppings right before you indulge tastes best. Not only is this meal quick and easy but it has several benefits. Chia pudding is high in vitamins, fiber, protein, calcium and omega 3, which allows you to feel full longer. Depending on your ingredient choices this meal can be vegan, gluten free, raw, paleo, low calorie, low carb or keto. The best part about this breakfast is that there are so many variations, avoiding the feeling of eating the same old boring breakfast
