CHIA BREAKFAST PUDDING
So although you don't want to admit it, you're sick of having bacon and eggs for breakfast - everyday. Cereal and oatmeal aren't really an option, what's a ketoer to do? Chia pudding is your answer. A cross between oatmeal and cereal, this nutritionally packed breakfast is a great way to start your day. Note that this recipe needs to 'soak' overnight, but it's well worth the 2 minutes of prep the night before...
- 3 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 tbsp hemp hearts
- 1 tbsp coconut (dessicated, unsweetened)
- 1 tbsp chopped pecans
- 1 tbsp chopped almonds
- 1 tsp pine nuts
- 1/4 cup vanilla almond milk (unsweetened)
Grab some tupperware you can cover in the fridge overnight. Dump in the chia seeds, hemp hearts, coconut and any low-carb nuts you might have on hand. I typically have pecans and almonds around, so in they go. Feeling extra fancy, throw in some pine nuts or walnuts to impress your friends. Pour in the almond milk, and give the mixture a nice thorough stir. Cover, and pop in the fridge. Now go to bed, you've got a big effin day tomorrow.
In the morning, or 6-8 hours later, the chia seeds will have absorbed the almond milk and swelled in size. If the mixture is too dry for your liking, go ahead and add in a splash of two of more almond milk until you're satisfied. At this point, you can eat as is, or if you want to go the extra mile, add in some berries, sprinkle some cinnamon, or drizzle with some sugar-free syrup. Choose your own adventure, and enjoy!
