THE HEALTHIEST OF BREAKFASTS - VEGAN FRIENDLY
I recently made the decision to start eating mindfully.
Don't take me wrong, I did not become vegetarian or vegan, at least not just yet. However, in the urge of getting my pre-pregnancy weight back, and in between the lack of time and motivation to do any more exercising, I decided to become more aware of what I put inside my body and consequently inside of Eva's stomach.
I still have my cheat days, which to be honest I find to be very important, but overall I am eating way healthier. I know that the hardest will be the beginning but then, as everything in life, it becomes a habit, and a good one this time!
So let's get to it.
This is a super easy and healthy recipe to begin the day with a smile. Not only it is refreshing because it comes out of the fridge, but it's also super colorful. Best yet, you have to prepare it the night or day before you consume it, which saves you way too much precious time preparing breakfast in rush mornings.
- 2 cups of wheat milk (or if you prefer, soya or almond milk)
- 1/2 cup of chia seeds
- Any fresh fruits you like
- 1 tablespoon of fresh lavender (If you like the aroma)
- Maple syrup (in case you want additional sweetener)
In a bowl, pour the chia seeds into the milk and stir it well until combined and the mix begins to thicken. If you want the taste of lavender, now it' the time to add it.
Pour the mixture into the bowls you will be serving later on. I put mine in a cereal bowl as I plan to eat it in the morning, but you can also pour into individual small bowls.
Leave it in the fridge overnight or at least for 2 hours and add the fruit on top before consuming. If you want, you can also add either honey or maple syrup. I personally find it very good without it.
