Simple Breakfast

Chia is a super food; an excellent source of omega fatty acids, has more antioxidants than blueberries and it’s full of minerals, calcium, protein, vitamins and fiber.

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons chia seeds
1/2 cup coconut or almond milk
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon honey

Directions:

In a small bowl or jar combine ingredients. After the first thirty minutes give the mixture a stir, so it doesn’t clump together. Then cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight. Once you’re ready to eat, stir in the honey

Optional toppings: goji berries, nut butter, coconut, fresh citrus, bananas, nuts, pomegranate seeds
