Hey! Do you even remember me? Ha… it’s been a while. I’m sorry SFG’s but I promise I have a few REALLY good excuses… first, and I’d like to think most importantly, I’m getting MARRIED!!! AHHHH… I’m so excited, and hope to share some of the fun details with ya’ll very soon… but I have to tell you, getting married is just as much work as everyone warns you it is! I feel like it’s been a roller coaster of planning– the minute you have one thing booked, there’s something else to worry about! So between the planning, and some family-engagement fun, it’s been a busy holiday season! Secondly, I just started a new job AND moved into a new gorgeous apartment in the middle of Manhattan’s West Village (AKA my DREAM-COME-TRUE neighborhood)!!! So between all these new changes– I’ve fallen off the blog posting wagon– but now that 2016 is here! I am ready to be committed again to the SFG movement AND my healthy lifestyle… and after celebrating my month full of holiday and engagement celebrations– it’s time for me to say “no” to sugar, and “yes” to some cleansing, and natural superfood breakfasts like this one! Chia Seeds are FULL of fiber and protein– so I’m adding them into my morning routine!
This breakfast is SO easy to prepare– and is a great breakfast to take with you during your morning rush; Just pack it in a mason jar and you’re good to go! Somehow this breakfast makes me feel indulgent, even when I know it’s good for me so what could be better than that?!
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED
1 frozen banana
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (I do vegan plant based)
1 cup of almond milk
1/4 cup of chia seeds
handful of blueberries
handful of frozen raspberries
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO
over-night (or at least an hour)… combine chia seeds with almond milk in a mason jar and let it set in the fridge
mash up some blueberries (so it’s kind of like a jam!) and pour over the chia seed pudding once it sets!
then in a blender– combine the banana, vanilla protein powder, and just enough water so that it becomes a thick smoothie!
finally, pour over the blueberries, and then add a layer of raspberries & slices of kiwis and some seeds for crunch!
AND now ENJOY!!
You can totally make this recipe you’re own… add some nuts, granola, or drizzle on some honey! Let us know what combinations you come up with SFG’s! We’d love to know and share!
