When it comes to breakfast, I feel like I'm always lacking inspiration. I get bored of my breakfast meal pretty quickly but I always end up preparing the same thing anyway. Lately I've been eating fried eggs with a side of fruits like grapefruit or a salad (I know, I'm weird). I'm getting sick of it! Eggs for breakfast once or twice a week is a thing, every single day is another one. It had to stop. The thing is, I don't really have the patience to cook in the morning. When I wake up all I want to do is eat. Like, immediately. Some people need a cup of coffee. I need my breakfast. I'm always starving, no matter what and how much I had for dinner the day before. So cooking a real meal that would take more than 10 minutes to prepare, from start to finish, won't be considered. Oh and to complicate things I don't eat cereals (or grains for that matter) so the traditional breakfast food is out of the list too. Complicated girl you say? Not at all 😉
The best solution for me remains to prepare my breakfast ahead. I am the happiest girl on earth when I have this sitting in my fridge. But it doesn't happen every day - though I would love to! This is when this chia pudding comes in handy. It's perfect for busy people who still want to eat a filling, healthy breakfast. Never heard of chia seeds? Chia is a super food. It is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, minerals and antioxidants. It's also very filling, which in my book is a must for breakfast. To prepare this chia pudding all you need to do is put all the ingredients in a jar, give it a good shake and let it rest overnight in the fridge. In the morning, you will wake up to a delicious pumpkin pie-like pudding. Easy peasy!
Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding
Combine all the ingredients in a small mason jar.
Put the lid on and give it a good shake to combine all the ingredients.
Let it rest for about 1 hour, shake again and let it rest in the refrigerator overnight. Eat by the spoonful when you wake up in the morning 🙂
- It will keep one to two days in the fridge.
