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!
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
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.
