As we inevitably move towards Autumn and say a sad goodbye to Summer, we go into Back to School mode. Even for those of us without school age kids, we still experience those Autumnal “fresh start” vibes. Perhaps we begin to turn away from any unhealthy habits picked up over the summer and start looking at our nutrition from a fresh perspective.
Add all that to the fact that more and more people are returning to their physical places of work in September, this is the ideal time for me to share with you my easiest chia seed recipe yet.
Chia seeds are high in 13 nutrients including vitamin D, (essential for autumn/winter!) zinc and omega 3. So while you’re enjoying the taste, you’re doing your body so much good.
My go-anywhere chia pudding can be used as a breakfast, a dessert, or a light meal. Once it has been allowed to set overnight and is in a good airtight jar, it really can go anywhere. To school, to work, and to your outdoor social activities. I recently brought mine on a walking tour of the Botanic Gardens and enjoyed my chia pudding outside on the steps of the beautiful Victorian hot houses.
Ingredients (serves 1)
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- ¾ cup plant milk of choice
- ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
- Pinch of cinnamon
Stir together thoroughly and allow to set in the fridge overnight.
Add topping of choice, my rule of thumb is
- 1 fruit
- 1 seed
- 1 nut
E.g. blueberries, sunflower seeds, and almonds or maybe strawberries, pumpkin seeds and walnuts
