easy chia seed breakfast

Monday, February 29

 First things first, this brilliant recipe was created by my sister.  She is unstoppable when it comes to creating healthy recipes out of just about anything.  At-risk produce in the fridge about to go bad? Don't worry, she'll throw together an amazing vegetable soup in two seconds flat.  I'm attempting to follow in her footsteps but I have come to the conclusion that I'll never quite catch up to her.   At least I will always have a killer role model, right?

Okay, moving on.  Breakfast has never been my strong suit, even with knowing the true importance of it.  It's the most important meal of the day and is what provides us with the energy we need to start our day out right.  Mornings themselves are busy and breakfast is always the last thing that happens before I walk out the door.  Therefore, if I'm running late, breakfast is skipped all together. Not a good start to the day.  Hangry is a real and thriving emotion in my life, so let's just say I always try to keep myself fed!  It's pretty mind blowing to see the difference in myself when I eat well in comparison to when I don't.  If I get too busy to eat, I find myself to be tired, unmotivated, and just overall irritable.  Food is fuel people, food is fuel.  

This quick breakfast (or snack) is just that.  It's quick, easy, healthy, and super delicious!  Chia seeds are highly nutritious and are a great source of protein.  Topping them with more nutrient dense foods, makes for a winner of a breakfast.  I've included a recipe card below if you're interested in trying it out.  I do have a few helpful pointers for you.  Make the mixture at night so it will be ready for a quick breakfast in the morning.  Next, I used sugar and vanilla because I didn't have anything else on hand, but you can also use healthier options like honey, agave, etc. to sweeten it.  I have also found that buying nuts in bulk at whole food stores like Good Earth, is more cost effective.  You also get to select your favorites and how much you get of each.  I used unsalted cashews, almonds, and pumpkin seeds this round.  My sister also adds in craisins as well.  That's the beauty of it, you can completely fit it to your taste.

I hope you enjoy this recipe!  I would love to hear your thoughts if you decide to try it out!
