My Healthy Friday Morning

My biggest food struggle is breakfast. I’m Czech, I grew up on bread rolls and ham for breakfast most of my life. I love bread rolls but that’s where part of my belly fat comes from 😹🤪.

Recently I’m really trying to be healthier, eat healthier. Healthy, filling breakfast is a part of it but I mostly end up with a bowl of rice topped with poached egg, steamed Okra and Kimchi. I used to have tofu with it, but trying to stay away from soy products for now due to my thyroid issues.

Yesterday, one of my friends asked about our favorite healthy snack/dessert and I remembered my Chia Pudding Recipe! Oh I miss it so much! It’s not only great as healthy dessert, it makes for great breakfast too!

Here is a link to my YouTube Video how I made this Chia Pudding It’s really delicious

Chia Seeds need time to soak so best of you can pre soak them the night before. If not, let’s hope you have at least an hour in the morning. Luckily I do, I actually prefer to wait an hour with my food after I take my morning capsule with Endoflex Vitality, so I started so soak my Chia seeds.

What you need

4 tbs of Organic Chia Seeds,

100 ml of Almond or Coconut milk

30 ml of NingXia Red

1 tbs of Pumpkin Seeds

1 tbs of Sunflower Seeds

1 banana

2 drops of Citrus Fresh

First of all, you soak your Chia Seeds with the liquids and let it sit for a while. Best is over night but an hour gives you good texture too.

Right before serving, you add your pumpkin and sun flower seeds or any seeds/nuts of your liking, half of the banana and 2 drops of Citrus Fresh Essential Oil for extra flavor and mix well. Serve with the rest of the banana on top.

You can actually make this with any fruits of your liking, I made it with Pineapple before and it was so delicious!

Chia Seeds are very good for you. They are great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants and provide us with fiber, iron and calcium. They help to raise our “good” cholesterol and protect our heart.

A one-ounce (28 grams) serving of chia seeds contains (1):

  • Fiber: 11 grams.
  • Protein: 4 grams.
  • Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are omega-3s).
  • Calcium: 18% of the RDI.
  • Manganese: 30% of the RDI.
  • Magnesium: 30% of the RDI.
  • Phosphorus: 27% of the RDI.
  • They also contain a decent amount of zinc, vitamin B3 (niacin), potassium, vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin B2.

This small amount supplies only 137 calories and one gram of digestible carbohydrate.

Why add 30 ml of NingXia Red? NingXia Red is my favorite part of my morning routine. It is so insanely good for our bodies! I keep telling everyone to drink it religiously. Those who listen, they flourish and see the amazing benefits.

But besides all these benefits, it’s also really delicious, full of berry flavor and that is something I really want from my food. Great flavors.

And why Citrus Fresh? You know I love Young Living Essential oils and I am very loyal to them. Because to be honest, if I’m adding oils to my food, I want to know where they are coming from and that they are pure. And only Young Living can guarantee it.

Citrus Fresh is fantastic blend of Orange, Lemon, Tangerine, Mandarin and Grapefruit with a hint of Spearmint, so you can imagine the burst of flavor in every single drop. It is also very rich in d-limonene, very powerful antioxidant. So it makes perfect addition to my morning bowl of goodness.

Hot Cross Buns with Essential oils

I love cooking and baking. Food in general is my big passion and ever since I started to use Essential oils, I also looked for ways to incorporate them in my food.

I have done lots of research to learn the Why and When and How, because cooking with Essential oils is a bit of science. You can’t just dump few drops here and there and hope for the best. You would ruin your dish.


First of all, I only cook with Young Living Essential oils. They have the best standards and as the only Essential oil company offer Seed to Seal Guarantee, which is very important. You cannot use oils that you have no idea where they came from or if they are diluted or tinted with God knows what. That’s dangerous. So please follow my suit and start using Young Living (pm me if you need to learn where to get your oils). Also remember, these oils are 100%, so highly concentrated, so little goes a long way.

The other day I woke up and felt like some hot buns. Hmmmm. I started to look for recipe for something delicious and came across one using dried spices. Not me! I reached for my Essential oils and voila, delicious buns came to life.

Would you like to bake some too? Here is your recipe


Hot Cross Buns with Essential oils
1 cup of milk

1 package yeast

3/4 c of brown sugar

1 tsp sugar

2 1/4 c of all purpose flour

2 c bread flour

1/2 cup of raisins or other dried fruits/candied fruits ( I used candied lemons with peel)

1 tsp salt

2 drops of Orange, Lemon, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Clove EO

4 tbsp unsalted butter

2 large eggs

1 egg yolk

1/4 tsp of vanilla
For the topping

1 tbsp of milk

1 tsp of powder sugar

1 drop of Lemon EO
Method:

Combine Luke warm milk, 1 tsp of sugar and yeast in a cup and wait till it gets foamy.

Combine both the flours, sugar, candies peels and dried fruits, salt in a bowl. Add butter. Whisk your eggs separately and add the EO into the egg mixture and combine, then add to the flour mixture. Keep mixing with bread hook on low until it combines and sticky dough form. Transfer to floured surface and knead until smooth. Form a ball and place it into a bowl that has been coated with oil. Let us rest for about an hour in a warm place.

After the dough has doubled, line a baking pan with parchment paper. Transfer the dough to a floured surface and knead some more, about 3 min. Divide into 12 pieces and form each piece into a ball. Set with spaces in between as they will double. Cover and let rise about 60-80 min.

Preheat your oven to 200 C. (400 F)

Before baking, combine the yolk with spin of water and and brush this mixture on top of each bun. Bake until golden, approx 20 min.

Transfer to wire rack to cool down. Combine confectionary sugar with spoon of milk and drop of Lemon EO and sprinkle over the buns and make a cross.
I hope you enjoy it. We are small family so I baked from half portions and had 6 big buns. I had one bun left the next day so I made French toast from it for Little D for breakfast. It was great!
