Chia seeds are small but mighty! Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, fibre, iron and calcium, they’re sure to fire up your concentration (and your bowels!). Hit the ground running by starting your day with a nourishing chia pudding!
A note on cooking
I encourage you to embrace a freestyle way of cooking, and use this recipe as a guide. Don’t get too caught up in measuring things exactly — you can eyeball most things.
Cooking should be relaxing, unfussy and an opportunity for you to exercise your creativity. Don’t forget to taste as you go along, and use your intuition with flavours.
Trust your instinct, on whether it needs more of this, or more of that — cook to what you like!
In a jar, add chia seeds, almond milk and vanilla extract. Put the lid on and give it a good shake. Leave to stand for a couple of minutes, and shake it up again to stop the chia seeds clumping together.
Pop it in the fridge to ‘swell’ overnight (or for at least 4 hours), and in the morning you’ll have a lovely, thick pud. It’s important to soak chia seeds for long enough to reduce phytic acid, which can cause tummy upset and gas.
You may need to give it another shake before you eat it- the more you shake, the thicker it gets. Top with almond butter and cacao nibs — enjoy!
A quick, easy, and portable breakfast, that will keep you feeling full and boost your brain power. What more could you want?!
