Do you often find yourself lacking the time and inspiration to make a healthy and tasty breakfast?
Then I’ve got the perfect breakfast idea for you! An easy, super tasty and nutritious Chia Pudding that is literally made within 2 minutes.
The ancient saying: Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper really does the trick with many clients that I speak with. And here’s why:
Our metabolism is at its strongest in the mornings, this is when we’re able to burn all those carbs and when our body is in need of a lot of energy to get us through the day.
This chia pudding contains healthy fats, protein and the good kind of carbs to staiblize your blood sugars and set the stage for a productive and energetic day. What’s more is this dish will definitely keep you full until lunch. Dig in!
You might have heard this before: Prepping is key for eating healthily. But when I say prepping I don’t necessarily mean spending hours and hours of your valuable time in the kitchen.
This overnight chia pudding is a great example: On the night before all you need to do is mix the chia seeds with some plantbased milk and a dollop of yogurt. That’s it! Leave this to sit in the fridge overnight and the next morning you just simply top it off with berries, seeds and just maybe a bit of nutbutter.
Now what I love about this recipe is that you can easily prepare nice and big batches of this, leaving you readily prepped breakfast for 2-3 days in a row.
Chia seeds have countless health benefits:
- They have a Massive Amount of Nutrients With Very Few Calories
- They Are Loaded With Antioxidants.
- Almost All the Carbs in Them Are Fiber, which is Great for our Gut and for Stable Energy & Feeling Satisfied
- Chia Seeds Are High in Quality Protein
- The High Fiber and Protein Content in Chia Seeds May Help You Lose Weight
- Chia Seeds Are High in Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Believe Me – Those are the Good Kind of Fats!
Need I say more? Didn’t think so. Let’s get right into it.
- 4 tbsps chia seed
- 250 ml coconut milk
- bit of vanilla
- 1 handful of shredded coconut
- 2 tbsps coconut yoghurt
- 1 handful berries (raspberries, blackberries or blueberries) or mango
- 1 dollop of almond butter (optional)
On the night before: Mix the chia and coconut milk (this should be actual drinking milk, not the one to cook with) and add the vanilla, put it in the fridge and let it soak over night.
In the morning get your bowl out of the fridge and add the yogurt. Top your pudding off with fruit, shredded coconut and optionally a dollop of nut butter.
